Global Media Becomes a Combatant

Retired Army Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, a frequent contributor to the New York Post notes, not for the first time, that Global Media has become part of the enemy combatant force.

Jack Kelly: Victory in Fallujah: "The victory in Fallujah was also remarkable for its speed, Peters said. Speed was necessary, he said, 'because you are fighting not just the terrorists, but a hostile global media.'"

The truth is that we expect Al Jazeera to be on the side of the insurgents, and, unfortunately, we have come to expect the same thing from the New York Times, CBS, NBC and ABC. It is time for each and every one of us to acknowledge our own complicity. These media giants are giants because we watch them or read them. It is that simple. Every time you buy a newspaper or watch a TV show you are voting with your money.
