ok, I can't handle this anymore, I don't want to see any more videos the terrorists release, I can see why they do it, hoping our military will give in to public pressure and give them their demands or withdraw, but that being unlikely, what's the reason for the networks showing them incessantly? For some reason they can censor inocuous material but commercialize and profit from all this terror. I feel film of hostages should be treated like prisoners of war, not to be paraded in public for humiliation. What's everyone else think? :reallymad:

I also think that the networks should stop showing them. We know shit like this happen in wars but they don't have to remind it to us everyday!

I'm referring to this latest american hostage taken in saudi arabia, I'll probably have nightmares wondering what they're going to do to him!

You know, there have been some incidents that have gone unreported where american soldiers were abused, (I'll find the reference), someone mentioned at work, a special forces agent was hung by the iraqi, her husband is a career military man and she's told some stories that never get reported. I guess my point is, there's so much we don't see, a snapshot is unfair, I notice we see mostly civilians taken and abused, and not military men, I'm sure the military prohibits alot of it. All deaths and abuse is terrible, placing emphasis on one situation or the other is an example of biased coverage that pervades the US news media.

Well, the media's job is to get the story, whatever it is... But I have real problems with Al Queda manipulating the news to advance their views--so I am not going to empower them.

I totally agree there dude but I wanna remind you that both sides of the war (any war) use the media for propaganda.

The station executives should be a little more careful to what they show the people

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
