I haven't watched the controversial SNIPER VIDEO CNN aired yesterday. But frankly, I think that if the msm does show shocking things like this, maybe the Fox News watchers and Bush/war supporters will stop and think about just what it is they're supporting.

Why CNN chose to show this horrific video is discussed by Anderson Cooper at http://www.cnn.com

Calif. Republican asks Pentagon to remove embedded CNN reporters
THOMAS WATKINS
Associated Press

SAN DIEGO - The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee asked the Pentagon on Friday to remove CNN reporters embedded with U.S. combat troops, saying the network's broadcast of a video showing insurgent snipers targeting U.S. soldiers was tantamount to airing an enemy propaganda film.

The tape, which came to the network through contact with an insurgent leader, was aired Wednesday night on "Anderson Cooper 360" and repeated Thursday.

In a letter to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., wrote: "CNN has now served as the publicist for an enemy propaganda film featuring the killing of an American soldier."

It's interesting how Republicans interpret propaganda. Faux News reports propaganda all the time in favor of the GOP and the Bush administration. But when something comes out by another network that exposes the war for once in all of its ugliness and horror, the Republicans cry foul.
