MSM BLAMED FOR POOR MILITARY RECRUITING REPORTS

Gary Bauer of American Values agrees, saying the mainstream media "can barely hide their glee" that the U.S. military is having trouble filling its ranks. "If you are an 18-year-old American watching the news, you seldom, if ever, hear about a heroic U.S. soldier who rescues a wounded comrade, captures a terrorist thug or saves the lives of civilians -- even though those things are happening every day," Bauer observes.

"On the other hand, every young American has seen countless hours of coverage of Abu Ghraib prison guards on their way to jail, and demonstrators calling U.S. soldiers war criminals," he says.


Hello! Did I miss something? Where was the demonstration in which U.S. soldiers were called war criminals? Is he talking about '68 or '05? I thought recent history was filled with denunciations of our LEADERS, not the troops who just do what they're told.

Some people just can't get over 'Nam. The refrain "baby killers!" keeps them awake all night.

Wish the killing itself would do the same.

It's just a moronic assessment by Bauer. Not EVERY branch's recruiting is down, so it seems kind of silly to be blaming the media for a general impact.

Bauer is obviously out of his element when the subject is more scientifically based...

Yeah, I love the policy of killing the messenger, not the mess-maker.
