Priorities

So here's the story.

Saddam Hussein orders 7 guys to have their hands amputated.

TV news producer arranges to have them flown to the US for treatment.

Makes documentary.

And...he can't find any broadcast or network station willing to air his film!

If some GI punched one of those guys in the nose, it would be huge news all over the world. No shortage of air-time would there be. But a story that makes Saddam look bad? No way. A story that makes the US look good? Not interested.

And what really gripes me is that those TV guys probably sit around preening themselves on their moral superiority, compared to the proto-fascist insects of the Bush administration.

And a lot of people get to take what they see on TV as evidence....
