More News Stories Overlooked by the Legacy Media
Journalists faithfully follow the story of how burglars broke into Paris Hilton's home, stealing millions of dollars' worth of jewelry, but we have not forgotten about the real treasure that belongs to all of us: Soldiers who serve our country in Iraq and Afghanistan (see picture, left).
Count on the Washington Times and FOXNews to cover President Bush's compassion towards service members who were killed or wounded in the Global War on Terror. A couple of excerpts:
"The Times notes that people familiar with Bush's routine say he has written letters personally to every one of the families of the more than 4,000 troops who have died in Afghanistan and Iraq. The task has taken a toll, and Bush has relied on his wife, Laura, for emotional support, he said....
"Bush has met with more than 500 families of troops killed in action and with more than 950 wounded veterans, often during private sessions, White House spokesman Carlton Carroll told the newspaper."
