The stupidity and shallowness of the media make me want to scream on a regular basis, which is why I pay far less attention to it than most other politically aware folks. I try to grab the info I need and ignore all else. But sometimes shit gets through.
Today the shit is in a CNN story about two Marine Corps generals getting sacked for not taking proper precautions prior to a Taliban attack on a U.S. military base in Afghanistan. A rare thing, and so an interesting story. And then it ends with this paragraph.
Britain’s Prince Harry was with his Apache helicopter crew at the time of the attack but was moved to a secure area, officials said at the time.
This is one of the U.S.’s top news sources. Seriously, that’s as good as it gets for the U.S. media.
