I think I noted some time back that I was having serious doubts about our "reputable" media outlets. I'll now include the journalists that work for them.
I agree that we should learn from our past to improve our future. And not make the same mistakes. But what mistakes are there that we should not repeat?
How about the mistake of not getting past the way the mainstream media companies present the burning issues of our times?
Let me provide an interesting video that you can view HERE
For those younger folks that may be interested in this discussion I will warn you, though, that there are some very graphic scenes in the video. It is also about an hour long.
There is also an article by Robert Elegant here http://www.wellesley.edu/Polisci/wj/Vietnam/Readings/elegant.htm
Let me know what you think.
