That Was Then, This Is Irresponsible

While I'm on the subject of media bias, Thomas Sowell has an excellent article at townhall.com titled The Media's War. Dr. Sowell compares the behavior of the media in previous wars with their behavior in the GWOT (Global War on Terror).
We have lost more men than that in our most overwhelming and one-sided victories in previous wars. During an aerial battle over the Mariannas islands in World War II, Americans shot down hundreds of Japanese planes while losing about 30 of their own.

 If the media of that era had been reporting the way the media report today, all we would have heard about would have been that more than two dozen Americans were killed that day.
