They're like a bunch of children. "Up next: Why won't Obama release the photo of the half-exploded head of a leader of thousands of deranged religious fanatics? Is he just too weak? We'll hear both sides of the argument from a Middle Eastern expert as well as a drooling racist imbecile with a degree from Regent University."
Why have they obsessively focused on nitpicking the operational details of the Bin Laden mission? Why do they want the Bin Laden photos to be released?
It is because of their solemn duty to give the truth to the American people?
Is it because the media are "serious" people who want to dryly report the facts?
No. It's because they want ratings. Blood and violent accounts of commando missions draw ratings. If they can't shower the world with gruesome pictures of Bin Laden's half exploded head, then the next best thing is a lively debate over whether we should shower the world with gruesome pictures of Osama's exploded head.
