Pentagon lifts media ban of KIA coverage

I don't usually hit cnn for unbiased media, but this story is so new at the moment that I couldn't find it anywhere else.

Official: Pentagon allows coverage of war coffins - CNN.com

Final decision on coverage is left to the families, as I feel it should be. But as I said in the other thread, this is an important part of war that should not be sanitized by hiding the most expensive price tag.
Thoughts?

I like that it's left up to the families. I worked At the National Naval Medical Center from 2003-2005 and in that time period I spent countless hours picking up wounded soldiers, sailors and airmen from Andrews Airforce base. Don't know if it was worked out to decrease media coverage but it seemed as if all flight arrived at 0200. You want to talk about a sobering experience!
