Let me guess, Rotten.com? But, you bring up an interesting issue about "truth in media." Wolf Blitzer and his little "Situation Room" cover the Iraq war every day. Yet the footage is never real "war footage." That is far too gruesome for people to see. Keep the reality of death out of sight, and out of mind, and people will be all for the war. The news should broadcast the world we actually live in, and it is not a nice one. I imagine support for the war would be down to almost zero if people actually had to watch the last 20 minuets of some 19-year-olds life after being hit by an IED every night.
