Must See T.V.?

New Fall Line-up?

Palestinian reporter Mazen Al-Tumeizi, was killed Sunday while covering news of an American tank disabled by a car bomb. While Al-Tumeizi gave a report of the event, a U.S. helicopter, hovering above the crowd that had gathered to observe the tank, opened fire on the crowd killing at least thirteen, including Al-Tumeizi. That the American press has paid only scant attention to this story highlights the degree to which we continue to be ill-served by a press more interested in weather events than in the on camera death of a colleague.

War crimes in our name but hey, it's the new fall season line-up.
