We can discover these numbers by visiting the internet. But this war should be in the consciousness of everyone all the time, not just those who have a loved one serving or the families of the dead and wounded.
Its so maddening that our Mainstream Media are negligent in their responsibility to deliver the truth of war to the American publica public which for the most part seems unfazed by the staggering numbers and the devastation.
In the last sixteen days, more troops have been killed than during the entire month of March. The information continues to run on the crawl rather than from the mouths of reporters.
Paula Zahn NOW brings you the stories that matter the most to you. Every night, we bring you the most dramatic stories: Well take you inside the news and behind the headlines from across the country and around the globe. Remember, the stories you see tonight on Paula Zahn NOW, youll be talking about tomorrow.
Would Zahn disappoint? Heres a segment from the show:
There have been many lies in the news lately. The lies of George W. Bush. The lies that took us into war. The lies about yellowcake and mushroom clouds. Certainly, I stayed tuned to see if Zahn would address the lies and liars responsible for the slaughter in Iraq.
Instead, I heard about the Runaway Bride; the Missouri husband/wife team, claiming that their sextuplets were in intensive care; and a schoolteacher in Massachusetts who said she had stomach cancer and received more than $35,000 in donations.
What about George W. Bush? I mentally projected to prod Zahn.
Instead, the anchor welcomed Stan Walters, author of The Truth about Lying: How to Stop a Lie and Protect Yourself from Deception.
I watched and listened to gain some insight into how to stop our presidents lies and to protect myself from his deception. But, really, I heard nothing I didnt already know. Walters said:
One of the things I always tell my corporate clients that I work with is that remember that lying is done for selfish reasons. Its always for the goals and objectives of the individual, and they lie either through hype, to harm or to hide something. In these cases we just profiled, you see theres a lot of hype, theres attempts to harm other individuals or to hide a wrongdoing so that they wont be exposed for the fraud or the crime theyve committed.
