Retired Generals and Donald Rumsfeld

I was passively listening to the evening news on one of the networks--my mom's in town and she like the MSM nightly news. The top story was how retired generals are stating that Secretary Rumsfeld should resign or be replaced.

Typical of the drive-by-media, they find the few disgruntled or left-leaning military men and assume this is the norm.

The editors had a few of these generals on the air but they did not present any opposing views, despite the fact there are approximately 870 active duty generals and admirals from 223,000 officers [2003], and probably an equal number of retired individuals who could comment on this.

As in Oprah, we are all victims; the MSM makes the news, does not report the news.
