During this point in the election cycle,
4 years ago,
ABC, NBC & CBS news programs each had little counters at the bottom corners of their screens tallying up US Soldier Deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan.
No program is doing that anymore.
Fact is, it ceased to be shortly after this president was elected.
If anyone is wondering how things are going over there now
MORE US Servicemen have died in Afghanistan in the 3.5 years Obama has been president, than during the 8 years of Bush.
(Look it up, NPR radio broadcast this fact 2 weeks ago)
My question is simple,
was this media manipulation,
using the deaths of our soldiers to point out mismanagement by the previous president,
but avoiding it now to NOT spotlight this presidents mismanagement?
Or is it that they feel US Servicemen Deaths aren't considered noteworthy anymore?
