Today, two television helicopters crashed into each other while covering the end of a police chase in Phoenix. There is footage of the final moments already on the net http://drudgereport.com and http://breitbart.com. It is sad as the pilot has no idea of what was about to unfold.
I guarantee that this will be shown constantly. That is tragic. But, there is another tragedy.
That is, when is the last time that you saw footage from the events of 9/11?
The reason I bring it up is that it seems like everything else is fair game, including titillating footage on supposedly all news cable outlets (and that includes Fox News Channel.).
I think that because the so-called news channels and the big three networks never show the footage of the attacks, that is why Americans are not believing that we are fighting the terrorists in Afghanistan, Iraq, and so many unknown areas of the world.
Here is a trade off. Stop showing this kind of stuff and start reminding Americans what the events of 9/11 were. Maybe that will wake a slumbering nation!
