Lame Stream Media F's up ...again

My favorite nephew and blog-brother SlagleRock has a post on an issue that only an veteran or current military member can speak to, namely using the images of active members of the military in a story about something that most members would find distasteful at the least.

Harpers claims that the images are "decoration for the pages". Having your image portrayed in (even if only periphally) connection with something that is antithetical to everything you hold dear is NOT "decoration", it is an insult to every person so portrayed.

Harpers should print an apology to every Marine in that "decoration".

It's a shame that the population that buys that tripe can't see the propaganda behind it, Goebbels would be proud.

Just fired off a note to the editor of Harpers, saying God bless our men and damn the eyes of their photo editor. Good work, Delftsman and SlagleRock! It was a Marty Feldman moment.
