Reader comment on item: Television in Time of War

Submitted by michael gottlieb (United States), Aug 3, 2005 at 12:13

The media will always pander to the money. If they could get Osama on the tube, saying anything he wants, they would do it.

We need the other side to be represented properly, even if they should not be on. I agree that media moguls should not let the enemy on TV. But you can't stop them and if no one went on against them, then they would still get on!

You need to show up and show them up for what they are. During WWII the Nazis did not get on TV after it started, but they sure were in the forefront before the war.

This war is different since the enemy is not in one place and there are enough appologists around that need to be refuted.

Keep trying.
