Shame on the Media

The link above is to an article by the blogger Iowa Hawk and it satirical in nature but deals with a serious subject, media bias. There have been a whole raft of articles in recent days about the level of violent behavior exhibited by US military personnel returning from Iraq. The reality is that returning military personnel are LESS likely to be criminals than the population at large.

Journalist who are generally the stupidest of the stupid and come from non-military families don't believe this because it doesn't fit into their preconceived prejudices. Indeed, as Iowa Hawk points out so well journalist are more dangerous than returning military.

Like most prejudice this one is wrong.

Until next time
