Admittedly, I Don't Read The Paper Much...

... and I watch TV news even less, but I get the impression that this sort of thing doesn't appear all that often. If indeed it doesn't, then the media is doing us a great disservice by not presenting this side of our armed forces.

Maybe you should diversify your news sources before you try making arguements about politics.

Not sure what you mean... I make no bones about the fact that I'm conservative (and thus the links to Malkin, NRO, etc.), but I read stuff at Daily Kos and New Republic, and check news both at CNN.com and FoxNews.com. My point in saying "I don't read the paper much ... and I watch TV news even less" was meant to bring out my unfamiliarity with those forms of media relative to online content. The "[i]f indeed it doesn't" bit was a CYA in case I have mainstream media pegged completely wrong.

If you have some good examples of the MSM running stories like the one I linked to, please bring them to my attention and I'll gladly revise my opinion.
