Late this morning, as I was eating my fried eggs and toast, I turned on CNN. The story being covered at the moment was General Ricardo Sanchez criticism yesterday of the Bush Administration's handling of the War on Iraq.
After reporting on what he said, a segment came titled "Who is Sanchez?"
"Ah, good," I thought, "it will be nice to get to know a little bit more about this guy."
This segment made three points. While Gen. Sanchez commanded forces in Iraq, from June 2004 to June 2004,
- Saddam Hussein was captured.
- Saddam Husseins sons were killed.
- The Abu Ghraib scandal unfolded.
Oh, great! I'm so glad I stay tuned. I now know so much more about General Sanchez.
Is this what in-depth reporting has come to?
