...Hey we can only cover 1 story at a time!!!
Mass media is the term used to denote, as a class, that section of the media specifically conceived and designed to reach a very large audience (typically at least as large as the whole population of a nation state). It was coined in the 1920s with the advent of nationwide radio networks and of mass-circulation newspapers and magazines. The mass-media audience has been viewed by some commentators as forming a mass society with special characteristics, notably atomization or lack of social connections, which render it especially susceptible to the influence of modern mass-media techniques such as advertising and propaganda. - wikipedia

Now don't get me wrong - AO is a disaster based website, we have a handful of people covering news and writing opinion articles such as this one - we DONT EXACTLY have the resources that FOX or CNN does... in fact, we operate on pocket change and donations.  Why is it that when one story of importance breaks (and the tsunamis are a tragedy) they shift 75% of their focus and resources to it, and blow off or put every other story as a footnote? Maybe no one taught them the fine art if multi-tasking? We are bombarded daily with all  forms of mass media - and every single time it seems we only get 1/2 the story,  1/2 the coverage, and 1/2 of the truth... and extended coverage on things like "michael jackson" and "scott peterson" which more people probably know about than the situation in Iraq.

The last week - Iraq Who?

This is a blessing in disguise for the Bush Administration - sad as it tmay be. Take the heat off the mess in Iraq - once again, out of sight, out of mind. The country saw a surge of massively important political developments and deadly attacks that could cripple elections set for the  30th, and none of them saw fit to cover nearly any of it. For instance, on Monday, insurgents tried to assassinate Abdul Aziz alHakim, a Shi'ite leader who is among the candidates for the election. (Any idea what that would do to a US election if somone tried to kill a candidate one month before elections?)  The same day, the leading Sunni Arab party withdrew from the race, which is going to push the legitimacy even farther off track.

The last 4 days of the week, insurgents mounted a campaign of violence that used shocking new tactics. One was to lure  police into booby trapped or rigged  buildings and another was to target an American bases with squad-sized units and attempt to used simultaneous car bombs. Now I know the US claim is that these are all tactics of "desperation" - but look at the toll it's taking all across the country. Dozens of Iraqis, many of them police, and 4 US servicemen were killed this week alone. This after the deadliest last few months in Iraq for the US.

-=> Last half of 2004 deadliest ever for US troops in Iraq
-=> Car bomb attack kills 19 Iraqis
-=> Iraq Ushers in 2005 With Deadly Attacks
-=> Threats from insurgents intent on forcing Iraq's January 30 poll into chaos.
-=> Iraq's election officials resign fearing reprisals

I flipped on CNN this morning. They did their normal lead in which they don't give ANY news - just a headline, then they broke away to more 24/7 tsunami coverage. 

A friend of mine asked me "Isn't mass media the one responsible for destroying the war effort?"
-=> U.S. media still hiding bad news from Americans

My thoughts:

Journalism: 'j&r-n&l-"i-z&m - : writing characterized by a direct presentation of facts or description of events without an attempt at interpretation and without opinion.

Journalism is a discipline of collecting, verifying, reporting and analyzing information gathered regarding current events, including trends, issues and people. Those who practice journalism are known as journalists. (not being a mouthpeice for the whitehouse, not being a mouthpeice for the administration - you're there to hold them up to standard)

As much as the media "hurts" the situation in Iraq, as you say, it hurts everyone for letting FALSE and untrue statements be played over and over 1000 times.

"I think the country does understand that we lost 3,000 people on September 11th and the fact that those people were operating in this part of the world ... You've seen the evil up close and personal, you know the danger that this poses. - Rumsfeld (source)

Again, Iraq had no ties to 9/11 - but by allowing the mass media to blare this message (that just because they were "in this part of the world") is worse for people to hear. 1/2 the Story = 1 Complete Lie The US government concluded itself Iraq had nothing to do with 911 - yet here you have Rummy invoking it every chance he can.... wrong country.
It's subliminal stuff like that, that had duped half of america into beleiving iraq was behind 9/11 when we first invaded.

You wanna get to the root of the problem, - hold those accountable when they do LIE or give half truths - and tell the Media to ACTUALLY ask tough questions, and CORRECT any falsehood they MAY LEAVE THE VIEWER BELEIVING. Tell them to cover more than 2 stories an hour - what with billions in resources, how can they NOT? They spend more in the blink of an eye than most internet bloggers and opinion writers get in a year... and this is the substance they produce?


For those of you have never been here :
I recommend you go now - and read it front to back.
