BTW, this is from the same USA Today article as the one with Richard's answers to questions about Jenn's comments. It's earlier in the article too. I find I can't really blame the writer this time. As a journalist, she does have to ask about it. That's her job. But it was nearly the last thing inthe article, like paragraph 16 or 17. The writer was fair, the article was basically positive, and the writer focused on good things, rather than re-hashing old 'bads'.
If we as readers choose to focus on the negative 10% of an article that's 90% positive, that's not the media's fault. We like to blame them for a lot of ills, but often, it's not what they write, it's what we as readers and watchers choose to focus on.
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
