    Such cowardice.
    It wasn't meant to inflame or else they wouldn't have apologized.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    If i'm going to diss somebody, I'm going to mean it, and not say sorry. Wake's right about one thing. It's cowardice.

    Wouldn't it be nice if they did that to 1/3rd of their nightly news program...just...."edit" it out?

    I remember having this romantic fantasy about news programs being good without 24 hr stations. Then I watched nightly news programs. I was dead wrong.

    The days of american news being news is over, when ratings and shcok factor became more important that facts and being objective that was the end.

    Im going to make the numbers up so dont hold me to them but I remember reading that while statistically violent crimes are down overall reporting them is up like 315% so it SEEMS its getting worse.

    My favorite news stories are the ones that could scare your grandmother yo death.
