I did a search and couldn't find any diaries focusing specifically on this video so I'm posting it now.

It's Al Jazeera's follow up to the Wikileak.org video of Apache gunships gunning down the Reuters reporters in mid 07.

On the main thread which also has links to other similar diaries, several Kosacks predicted that the mainstream media wouldn't show the video for any number of reasons.

Sadly, days later, this prediction remains true. CNN refused to show the video "...out of respect for the family members of the Reuters reporters..." Olbermann (MSNBC) showed parts of the video and Keith did it some justice but not as much as I would have liked.

Meanwhile the rest of the world is seeing the video played over and over so only Americans are left in the dark again on an issue that concerns us more than anyone else since we're the ones who are to blame for it.

Was there any major network willing to educate Americans by showing them this video?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
