! I saw the media show the Brits coming in to rescue the foreigners out of Freetown, Sierra Leone while telling me to make my pilots be quite in the swimming pool in the back of our HQ as they (Brits) came through our back gate. The media had the Brits looking like they were in FULL ATTACK Mode. WHAT A JOKE !!! Not that we didn't need them, but what was happening at our HQ and what was depicted was totally different
Of course our Bar and Pool was always open and the Press really enjoyed it, cause very few would go outside the gates while the slaughter was going on, even when I invited them to go see the action with me
You got to remember most of these guys are paid on a picture basis, and the worst the better. And NEVER believe that they don't have their own slant to what is going on and who is a fault. "OH" Yea, on the fault question, it's always the U.S ! And as that Famous Marine
It's a business, they are here to make a buck. If they can scare you into staying tuned you bet your ass they will. Look at just your local evening news. They allways put the important info right at the end, keep you in place waiting.
Think it's different with world or national media?
Bunch of fuggin sponge heads out there feeding you the story THEY WANT to tell, not the truth.
