You must be in a dream world if you think that CBS aired these pictures for anything more than ratings and MONEY. They could care less about lives that will be lost - that just boosts their ratings more. Like I said. The men that committed the crime are going to answer for the crime. What about the participation of CBS? You actually believe in a time of war that the media should have unbridled freedom to put anything they get their hands on in front of the world? That is treason and anyone who says that CBS is not to blame for this mans beheading is living in wonderland.
You must be in a dream world if you thought I suggested that CBS aired these pictures for anything more than ratings and MONEY. I didn't speak to that matter at all.
I did say that the soldiers are to blame for taking the pictures. They are.
The media did what it usually does. They aren't saints (for example they love these pictures but won't show us the Pearl or or Berg videos, nor stills of the WTC attack). So they are fakes.
But somehow blaming CBS for these pictures isn't very helpful.

"CBS aired these pictures for anything more than ratings and MONEY"
Exactly the case - and they wouldn't have released them if this had been done when Clinton was president.
