I hate the f#cking media!
I can't believe I actually have a degree in journalism...
"The Times kept the kidnappings quiet out of concern for the men's safety, and other media outlets, including The Associated Press, did not report the abductions following a request from the Times."
I love how they honor requests from other news outlets. However when it comes to a request from a grieving servicemember's family...DENIED.
Who here wants to bet that if it was a member of the military abducted it would of been on the news? Anyone?
The quote comes from here: NYT Reporter freed
"He was a SOT-A Soldier doing exactly what SOT-A's do," his commander said, "fighting alongside his special forces teammates in the most difficult, dangerous places while carrying heavy loads of technical gear that saves lives of our forces and takes the lives of our enemies."
