If only

If only the MSM would expend all their energy on analyzing terrorism vs elections we’d be closer to everlasting peace.

From Otto:

Now, imagine if 1/100 of the money, the talking heads, staffs, cameras and technology had been devoted to analyzing terrorism in the 90’s or the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan now? Do we need an active and free press, you are damned right. But when the best actual reporting out of a combat zone is coming from the likes of Michael Yon and Michael Totten both self supported independent bloggers, and some of the best analysis of terrorism and the world we live in are coming from websites and self funded operations like Small Wars Journal, and The Long War, dont be surprised when our media is blindsided again.
