The Media and Iraq continued...

Apropos yesterday’s post on General McCaffrey’s report, ShrinkWrapped analyzes a New York Times piece “Where Are the Heroes?” supposedly bemoaning the lack of public interest in the courage of our military. From ShrinkWrapped:

If most Americans have never heard of Sgts. Smith, Hester, and Peralta, perhaps it is because the New York Times and the rest of the MSM have ignored the stories. Those of us who surf the blogosphere, including the Milblogs, have had ample opportunities to read about and marvel at the exploits of these wonderful young men and women. Unfortunately, most Americans still get their news from the MSM.

I’d take the “perhaps” out of the first sentence.

UPDATE: A reporter on the scene shows empathy for our troops.
