Why isn’t this all over the front page?

AKA: Oh, THAT liberal media!

The soldiers are asking Rumsfeld some very hard to answer questions but, for some reason, they don’t want to plaster these ones all over the place like what happened with the planted armor question.

Q: Sir, how do we win the war in the media?

It seems like that is the place where we’re getting beat up more than anybody else? I’ve been here – this is my third tour over here and we’ve done some amazing things. And it seems like the enemy’s Web sites and everything else, they’re all over the media and they love it.

But the thing is everything we did good, no matter if it’s helping a little kid or building a new school, the public affairs sends out the message, but the media doesn’t pick up on it. How do we win the propaganda war?

Very good question.

I would hope Rummy could figure this one out.

I have a suggestion, but hanging members of the media who are treasonous to the Iraqi people from light poles (ie. the AP, AFP and Reuters assholes who seem to get all this cool footage of attacks on military installations from the perspective of the jihadis) would probably prove to be counter-productive.

    I don’t know about counter-productive…hey you have to try different things until you find something that works. All I am saying is that I wouldn’t dismiss hanging out of hand. You never know, it might be just the thing needed to remind them what side they are supposed to be on, should they choose one.
