I agree totally. Too bad we can't get the whole nation to understand what is at stake. In times past the media were self disciplined. Wish our countrymen would rise up and protest this kind of irresponsible journalism/reporting. If it affected their ratings in a negative way, they might think more about curbing their programming. However, too many of us are just too brainwashed already to realize just how "managed" the news is and how they, the American public is being snookered or worse.

Thank you Pat Boone, for your courage and comments. I had many of the same thoughts. The media, especially CBS is putting reporting, usually bias before the safety of our troops and country. I also am very up set by Dan Rather's actions and lack of a apology to our country and especially to our President. CBS will not be shown in my home every again. Pat

I fully support Pat Boone's courageous assesment of the shoddy journalism practiced at CBS in releasing the photos of prison abuse! We have witnessed more blunders by Dan Rather and his cronies in recent weeks. Edward R. Murrow must be spinning in his grave as this network news department, once a shining star of broadcast journalism, implodes!

I do not judge the candidates by their looks or if they grin like a opossum. I also think that if Kerry wins, which I doubt very much, it will take him longer than 4 yr. to straighten out the mess this president has put us in. I expect that this will be another 2000 where the president will make sure he wins one way or the other. I will vote for him so he cannot blame someone else for his mistakes. F.B .

I do not understand why people thinks our President Bush lied. I believe he did the right thing.Saddam was giving the inspectors the run around.I am one who is glad saddam in in jail, and I do believe we will capture Osama. I do not think Kerry or anyone else could do a better job than Bush is doing. As for the scandal at the prison, I dont like the way things were done there, but believe me it wasnt near as cruel as cutting off the heads of those people.I just pray they get the Iraquies trained well and soon and our sons can all come home soon. Thank you Pat for speaking out. God Bless our sons and daughters.And God Bless America, Land of The Free.... I. L. A. Texas.. U.S.A.

This would never happened if only our Presidemnt and his staft had told the public the truth . But instead they lied from the start about all the things that they quoted as reasons for declareing war on Irac and they are still sticking to these reasons even though there are many proofs have been presented by reliable plersons to show that they lied . the real reason that they went top war was a three lettered word OIL ! ! !

I am so glad that Pat Boone wrote the message that he did. He is right and I appreciate his boldness to speak out. I am glad that I found this posting on this site. I have been feeling pretty down since the debate and all of the news and polls since then. I am sure there are some issues that we don't agree with President Bush on, but I believe he is God's Man and I believe the better man. Let's remember to pray for President Bush and believe that God's will- will be the outcome of this election. Our part is to pray, know the issues, and make sure that we vote, then we will know that we have done our part as citizens and Christians. We have to stand for the things we know to be right even when they aren't the most popular. I can do that better when I know that there are Christians who feel as I do and are standing for the same things. Thank You for voicing your feelings so I could read them. Pat,CA

OCTOBER 4,2004. WELL I WAS PRETTY DISSAPOINTED AT THE PRESIDENTS DEBATE THE OTHER NIGHT. I AM SURE HE COULD HAVE DONE A BETTER JOB THAN HE DID. I HOPE HE DOES BETTER AT THE NEXT ONE. THERE WERE SO MANY TIMES HE COULD HAVE BURNED KERRY. I GUESS HE IS JUST TOO NICE OF A GUY TO GET NASTY LIKE KERRY DID. I AM BEGENNING TO GET A LITTLE TIRED OF POLITICS AND ALL THE MUD SLINGING. I JUST SHUTTER TO THINK WHAT IT WILL BE LIKE IF KERRY GETS ELECTED. HE CAN GET US IN SO DEEP IN TROUBLE THAT THE NEXT PRESIDENT PROBABLY COULD NOT GET STRAIGHTENED OUT IN YEARS. WHEN ALL THE CRAP HITS HERE INSTEAD OF OVER IN OTHER COUNTRIES, I HOPE THESE PEOPLE THAT HELPS ELECT HIM FEEL REAL PROUD OF WHAT THEY'VE DONE. THAT IS IF HE GETS ELECTED--- I DO NOT BELIEVE HE WILL. I'M BEGGENING TO THINK EDWARDS IS NO BETTER. WITH HIS OPOSSOM LOOKING GRIN, THAT LOOKS LIKE HE IS HAVING, TO LOOK LIKE, HE IS HAVIN THE TIME OF HIS LIFE. WELL I GUESS WE SHOULD JUST PRAY FOR THE BEST. MAYBE GOD HAS A PLAN FOR US ALL. GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS EVERY WHERE AND ALL THEIR FAMLIES WHO WAIT FOR THEM AND GOD BLESS OUR GREAT NATION AND OUR LEADERS. YOU ARE SO RIGHT MR.PAT BOONE. GOD BLESS YOU TOO AND YOU DID A GREAT JOB.

I think Mr. Boone is 100% correct in this article. I have talked it over with my husband for weeks about this very thing, and we are in agreement with what has happened, because of CBS and the entire liberal democratic media. They have all made our Nation look bad in the sight of the world and continue to belittle our President to everyone around the world. They should be tried for treason for the things and events they have caused to happen to our soldiers and our international standing. These people have no idea about the cost of freedom. Certainly not Kerry. Have people forgotten about the WW11 and how many were lost in Normandy in a one hour period? (10,000 men) Just so we could free the European world of the tyrany of ruthless and murderous regimes? Look at the history of Nation, our willingness to help other Nations to attain freedom, so they can live in peace and have freedom.Many more lives have been lost to that period. In reality this is the lowest death rate for any war. Why isn't that brought out? This war is for the same reason that WW11 was fought. To LIBERATE and bring freedom to those who have been so abused by Sadam in Iran. Oh how I ache for the families of the soldiers killed in action in Iran, but we have got to remember that freedom is NOT FREE and that freedom is won by blood and guts and bravery and the belief that all Nations should be free from murdering despots. If you ask the soldiers who are in the United States recoverying from injuries, almost all say they want to go back and fight some more to help these people attain the freedom that every human being in this world deserves. My point in this is that you dont ever hear this in our media. Not just CBS, but every one of our media agencies are spreading dispersion on our President and has made us look weak in the eye's of our enemies. Thay have made our Nation look weak in the eyes of the world and have endangered us more by the false and left out information. These enemies think,"they can be gotten to easy. Look,they don't even stand united in their Government. They get away with abusing their own President, so they can be got to,while they are fighting and belittleing each other in their own government." These news agencies have caused more death and damage to our great nation than any other source elsewhere has. I truely believe that they should stand trial for treason, because that is what they are doing. They are not standing together as a Nation, but pulling every one in this Nation down by the lies and the left out information. There needs to be truth in the media, but as long as they are allowed the free reign to lie and cheat and disparrage our President, we will continue to look weak to the world and in that, we are more unsafe as a nation then ever in our history as a Nation.

Yes, we have freedom of speech in America and that was also bought with a price years ago, but, I feel that we are shifting the real issue to media or the F.B.I. when we should be shifting our attention to the Book of Revelations. In doing so we would find that all of this has been predicted and whether or not we want to admit to it, this is a Holy War, and it will only get worse before it gets better.so before we get out of hand on the blame game, let's read Revelations and see for ourselves where this is all going. The bottom line is that it is not what God, whose God, but the one and only Jehovah God who sent His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him,(Jesus Christ) shall not perish but have everlasting life.

OK, let me be sure I'm understanding what your saying. The important thing here is the story. The fact that a few American lives are lost as a result of the story is of absolutely no importance to you. Does that pretty much state your position on this issue? Again, we are not talking about the war, we are discussing CBS' reporting of a story that puts our troops in Iraq in harms way, period. Whether you are for or against the war, I would hope that the safety of our guys is of some importance to you.

I'm for FREEDOM OF THE PRESS if CBS, ABC, or NBC have a true story to report to the American public, they should do it. Mr. Boone did not comment on the fact that we are into a war because of poor inteligence reporting by the CIA, FBI, and yes even our white house. They seem to tell us only what they want us to know. Not a honest game. If reporting the facts makes them disloyal Americans, so be it, but I consider them to be honorable people when they show the true story of what is going on.

I, too was angry at seeing the pictures on television and will do as you suggested and not watch CBS any more. I don't understand why they did this, didn't they know that such a publication would hurt our country? It would have been one thing if the allegations weren't being investigated but the to show those pictures says that their only aim is publicity. Isn't it a shame that they have to take such measures to gain ratings?

I too agree with Mr Boones view of the events that have taken place and I would like to add that this is the perfect example of how the media takes control of the situation to make it portray something it may very well not be. Its pretty easy to share all the right media in order to make a halloween party look like a KKK meeting. Sadly, the true accuracy of the news has to be assumed by a general synopsis of all the media moguls in order to find out what the real truth is. And even then your at risk of not knowing the whole story! And as far as we have advanced technologically one would assume you could get the facts from any given event in the world. The irony of knowing so very much and being clueless at the same time. We will only know what the want us to know. Thanks for your comments!

We all agree with Pat Boone about the media, but I cannot see what it hurts to give your opinion about the war which is where it all started. No one complained until someone said something against the war.

I'll take it a step farther. I refuse to watch ABC, CBS, NBC or CNN news ever again. I am a reservist who was activated after 911 and sent to southwest Asia in support of ENDURING FREEDOM and Afghanistan. Every time - without exeption - these news stations broadcast stories supporting or trying to understand the plight of the terrorists, there was a surge of attacks against our troops. Bin Laden thought since we backed away from Vietnam because of civil pressure from the anti-war movement, he and other terrorists believed they could create the same reaction by increasing the bloodshed of our soldiers. ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and EVERY OTHER celebrity that perpetrated anti-war sentiment, I hold personally responsible for the deaths of the soldiers killed during those episodes. Freedom of speech also demands responsible judgement and all these people have exhibited they have none. Jim Patterson

I have been saying for years that this business of being "politically correct" is a bunch of crap. When we dropped an atom bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki........it might not have been necessary, but we WON the war DECIDEDLY and Japan GOT OVER IT. They are our ally now. The same goes for Germany........they GOT OVER IT. What happened in Abu Graib was nothing more than a 'college hasing'. They did NOT cut off heads and show it on television. Yes the news media PRESS AND TV, not only CBS, but ALL news media's primary and ONLY concern is RATINGS. It was bad enough before TV, but since the advancement of Television, it is downright preposterous. The world was MUCH better off when the public was on a "Need to know" basis. At one time there WAS such a thing as "treason". Apparently there isn't anymore.

Yes, I often believe the media goes too far sharing too much/too little in vital situations. But, I also wonder just who the real puppet master is and how much hand our government trully has in what is being reported. Do we really want to know the full truth and nothing but the truth? And who does the truth benifit? Us?, Them? And if the government trully pulls the strings as I suspect then who or what are we to ever believe as truth?

Well said, Mr. Boone! I am old enough to remember World War II and subsequent wars. I clearly see the political slant that CBS (and other irresponsible networks) have have taken over theyears; that of undermining democracy, moral standards, precious, (and absolutely vital to our country),God-given Christian beliefs. I for one, am sick, sick, sick of the trash and completely irresponsible diatribe that we all endure from the so-called "informed" media. When do we stand-up and demand that networks clean up their act and start considering the effects of their programming. At some point, responsibility has to precede the dollar, otherwise we are in the proverbial "hand-basket" heading for hell! I applaud you, Mr. Boone! Thank you!!

SEPT6,2004 ARANSAS PASS, TEXAS=== I JUST READ THE WORDS OF PAT BOONE. I THINK HE IS 100 PER CENT RIGHT. I THINK WE HAVE BEEN IN WAR SINCE NOVEMBER 1979. IF YOU READ THE PEOPLES VOICE, THE SPEECH CAPT.OUIMETTE GAVE I THINK YOU WILL AGREE. WE FORGET SO SOON, THINGS LIKE THE USS COLE AND THE SHIP THE ACHILLE LAURO WHERE THE TERRORISTS KILLED THE MAN IN THE WHEELCHAIR. ALL THE BOMBING OF THE AMERICAN EMBASSIES. ITS A SHAME NO PRESIDENT DID ANYTHING BEFORE. THE ONES WHO DID,NEVER FINISHED THE JOB. LOOK HOW MANY SERVICE MEN WERE KILLED IN SOME OF THOSE BOMBINGS. WE NEED A PREDIDENT THAT DON'T BACK DOWN AND WHO STANDS BACK OF WHAT HE SAYS. I THINK PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH IS THE RIGHT MAN FOR THIS. WE HAVE HAD SOME GREAT PRESIDENTS, THEY DID GOOD THINGS WHILE IN THE WHITE HOUSE . BUT WE NEED SOME ONE TO STOP THESE TERRORIST. I AM SO PROUD OF OUR TROOPS. THEY ARE DOING A GREAT JOB. GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS AND THE LOVING FAMILIES WHO DOES THE TOUGH JOB OF CARRYING ON WHILE THEY ARE GONE. GOD BLESS OUR PRESIDENT AND GOD BLESS AMERICA..THE LAND I LOVE. THE HOME OF OUR BRAVE.

WE GET DISGUSTED WITH THE MEDIA (ESPECIALLY WHAT CBS DID) THAT REPORTS INFORMATION THAT SHOULD BE CLASSIFIED. THEY HELP THE ENEMY AND BRING HARM TO OUR NATION.

I totally agree with this article (so does my husband). The media has done much damage to our nation. It is not the responsible media of 40 and 50 years ago. We are amazed as we watch the media report information that should be classified. They alert the enemy of our country and do us harm. My husband was in the 13 major battles of the South Pacific during World War II; and he (and I are disgusted with the lack of patriotism of our nation and lack of respect for the office of the President.

What better way to make an Iraqi loos his cool than having to appear naked in front of a woman who holds power over him? I firmly believe in Freedom of the Press, but a generous helping of WW II type censorship might not be too bad an idea.

I HAVE SHARED MR. BOONE'S FEELINGS ABOUT THE MEDIA FOR A LONG, LONG TIME. THE MEDIA IS SO BIASED I CAN'T STAND TO WATCH JUST ABOUT ANY NEWS. FOR A NETWORK TO GIVE OUT INFORMATION THAT CAN HURT OUR TROOPS PLANS AND LOCATIONS IS ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE. TO MAKE A WAR HERO OUT OF JOHN KERRY JUST BOGGLES MY MIND. HAS ANYONE SEEN HIS PICTURE IN THE NORTH VIETNAM MUSEUM WHILE HE WAS MEETING WITH THE ENEMY, EVEN AS OUR MILITARY MEN WERE DYING? (SHADES OF JANE FONDA OR HANOI JANE WITH HER PICTURE PLASTERED ALL OVER THE MEDIA AS SHE FRATERNIZED WITH THE ENEMY; TO MY WAY OF THINKING THAT BORDERS ON TREASON) I HAVE READ ALL THE COMMENTS THAT PEOPLE HAVE MADE TO PAT BOONE'S LETTER AND THE MAJORITY ARE WITH HIM AND ALSO WITH PRESIDENT BUSH. TO PRAISE PAST PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON ALSO OVERWHELMS ME. HE ALMOST WAS THROWN OUT OF OFFICE BY IMPEACHMENT. OUR CHILDREN'S SENSES ARE BEING BOMBARDED BY THE MEDIA, BOTH THE NETWORKS, NEWSPAPERS & MAGAZINES. IT SEEMS LIKE THEY DON'T HAVE MANY ROLE MODELS ANYMORE. pARENTS ARE THEIR BIGGEST ROLE MODELS BECAUSE THEY CERTAINLY CAN'T QUALIFY SOME SPORTS FIGURES AS ROLE MODELS BECAUSE OF THEIR INVOLVEMENT IN DRUGS. wHAT DOES A CHILD THINK WHEN A BASEBALL FIGURE IS CAUGHT USING DRUGS AND WARNED. THIS SAME BASEBALL PLAYER HAS BEEN CAUGHT NUMEROUS TIMES AND HE STILL PLAYS. WHAT KIND OF MESSAGE DOES THAT SEND HOME? MUSICAL ARTISTS ALSO ARE GLORIFYING DRUGS AND THEIR MUSIC REFLECTS IT. I COULD NEVER PLAY SOME OF THE DVD'S FOR MY GRANDCHILDREN AS THE LYRICS ARE DISGUSTING. EVEN COMMERCIALS ON TV ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE SENSUAL AND IN BAD TASTE. I STOPPED DELIVERY OF MY NEWSPAPER BECAUSE OF THE SLANTED AND BIASED PERSPECTIVE ON JUST ABOUT ANYTHING THE LEAST BIT CONTROVERSIAL. I LIKE TO RESEARCH AND FIND OUT AS MUCH AS I CAN ON A SUBJECT. I LIKE BEING INFORMED BECAUSE I TOOK THE TIME TO SEARCH OUT FACTS. I DON'T NEED OR WANT THE MEDIA TO INSULT MY INTELLIGENCE BY THEIR "THEIR GLOOM AND DOOM" BIAS AND SLANT TO TRY TO GET THE PUBLIC ALL RILED UP WITH ONLY REPORTING ON THE BAD STUFF AND NOT THE GOOD THAT IS HAPPENING AROUND THE WORLD. THAT TENDS TO BE BURIED ON THE BACK PAGE. IN CLOSING I FULLY SUPPORT PRESIDENT BUSH AND RUE THE DAY IF SENATOR KERRY BECOMES OUR NEXT PRESIDENT. WE WILL ONLY GO TO WAR IF HE HAS THE APPROVAL OF THE UN. WE ALREADY SAW WHAT PRESIDENT BUSH WENT THROUGH TRYING TO GO THAT ROUTE. GOD BLESS AMERICA, OUR PRESIDENT, OUR TROOPS, BOTH OVERSEAS AND STILL HERE ON OUR SHORES. WE DON'T NEED A FLIP FLOP PRESIDENT WE NEED A PRESIDENT WITH STRONG MORAL CONVICTIONS AND ETHICS.

If Pat Boone's assertions are correct - and I have no reason to believe they are not -the networks he mentions have committed an act so akin to treason that I, for one,cannot separate it from treason. Among a profession composed of so many "dreamers" and "lost souls," it is very encouraging to hear the voice of a true patriot who has the fortitude and honor to stand tall and expose those who would destroy the very basis of our free republic. Mr. Boone, you have my utmost respect and admiration. We need more like you, especially in theentertainment world. H. Olinde, M.D.

We are there, right or wrong, don't give the enemy any more motivation to kill our soldiers than they already have. When CBS aired this story, they knew what the result would be and went ahead with the story anyway. Again, That's a crime.

I read all the comments and felt all the hate in them. Fox news is as bad as CBS, the Republicans of course are not going to admit it. I think since George Bush wanted to be president so bad, that he should stay in and finish what he started. I think there were other ways to take care of terriorism, The lives of our sons is too precious to waste. I pray God will look out for them. Too many countries are in the same situation as Iraq. Why this country? Are we going to take on the rest? I am proud to be an American and pray whatever is being done is right and not just politics. If you do not have sons, think of the ones that do.

I don't understand why some of you can't seem to separate what Mr. Boone is commenting on and your hatred of Mr. Bush. There are many people opposed to the war in Iraq and they have every right to their opinion. Unless I'm mistaken, Mr. Boone was commenting on CBS' unconscionable release of information that was and is extremely harmful to our country and more importantly, to our soldiers fighting in Iraq. There are many things about this war that have been questionable, but none of them have anything to do with puting our soldiers in harms way for the sake of ratings. CBS decided to release this story to the world knowing full well what the consequences would be for our people on the ground in Iraq. That's a crime.

Very well said by Pat Boone The truth cannot be better presented. I wish his letter could be shouted to the public, printed in every newspaper and reviewed on every radio and TV broadcast. My son is in Iraq. He deserves good press. They all do. I was making a card to send to my son and surfing the web I put in "soldiers pictures" I wanted to fill the card with soldiers being brave and facing danger and enjoying small things that are hard to come by, like talking to a child or petting a kitten or a letter from home. All that came up was hundreds of repeated pictures of the abuses at Abu Ghraib. Nothing else. As though that was all this waris about.

Terrorism is here and it needs to be dealth with not just for Americans but also for the rest of the world's population. The article in question not only doesn't place Americans in a favourable light, it puts any western country with troops in Iraq in a good light.

I beleive Mr. Boone hit the nail on the head. I loved watching CBS news. But what they did report of the war I feel was wrong. War is War. Why should we have to tell the enemy what we are doing. CBS did a good job of stirring the hornet nest. Many young men have died since the report and they are still being killed. I wonder if the news reporters would like to go to Iraq and fight for just 1 hour. I bet they would be glad to be back home. President Bush has done a great job on the war and he should be congraduliated. I will vote for him. We have a man running against him who is Catholic. He will not make a dicision on how he feels about abortion. Do we really want a man like that in charge of Country, Not me.

YOU KNOW AS THE PERSON'S LETTER I AM REFERING TO WHO CHOOSES TO CALL OUR MILITARY STUPID... WELL THESE SAME MEN AND WOMEN GO OFF TO WAR TO FIGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM. SO THOUGHTLESS PEOPLE LIKE THIS CAN CALL THEM STUPID. AND WHEN A FEW DOES SOMETHING WRONG, YOU CANT BLAME THE WHOLE OF THE MILITARY, HAS DONE SOMETHING WRONG, OR CONDONE IT. AS FAR AS THE PRISON SCANDLE, I THINK THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN LEFT UP TO OUR MILITARY TO HANDLE. AND THEY WERE TILL NEWS SPREAD IT FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE. KNOWING IT WOULD HURT OUR BRAVE SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN. I GUESS IT WAS OK TO CUT OFF HEADS OF AMERICANS ,DRAG BODIES AROUND BEHIND CARS AND HANG THEM FROM BRIDGES. (BY THE WAY THE LETTER THAT MADE ME DECIDE TO WRITE THIS WAS POSTED ON AUGUST 31'2004 AT 20:08:46.)MAYBE PEOPLE WHO FEEL THIS WAY WOULD RATHER SEE THESE THINGS HAPPENING HERE ON OUR STREETS. WELL THEY MAY GET TO IF WE ARENT VERY CAREFUL WHO WE GET TO LEAD US THROUGH THESE DAYS AS WE FIGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM. I THINK OUR PRESEDENT BUSH IS THE RIGHT MAN FOR THIS. I'M WITH HIM AND OUR TROOPS 100 PER CENT. IN THE LETTER I REFERED TO ABOVE, IT MADE MY BLOOD BOIL WHEN I READ WHAT WAS SAID ABOUT OUR MILITARY. HERE IS THE QUOTE FROM THE LETTER( YOU CAN SCROOL DOWN AND READ IT FOR YOUR SELF.)"I AM GLAD THE PICTURES CAME OUT AND SHOWED JUST HOW OUR MILITARY SHOWS ALL THEIR STUPIDITY AND THINK THEY CAN DO ANYTHING AND GET AWAY WITH IT." IT MAKES ME MAD FOR OUR MILITARY TO BE CALLED STUPID. THEY GO FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY, SO SOMEONE CAN SET HERE AND CALL THEM STUPID..ALL IRAQUIES AREN'T BAD OR EVIL, SAME AS ANY OTHER COUNTRY. BUT THERE ARE THE ONES WHO WOULD CUT YOUR HEAD OFF, AND SAY THEY DID IT IN THE NAME OF GOD. THOSE WE HAVE TO GET RID OF. WE DO NOT NEED THEM HERE. I AGREE WITH MR.BOONE 100 PER CENT.I HAVE BEEN BEHIND OUR PRESEDENT 100 PER CENT. I THINK PRESIDENT BUSH HAS THE BACK BONE TO PROTECT OUR COUNTRY. I WOULDNT WANT KERRY TRYING. HE HAS PUT TOO MUCH IN TO HIS 4 MONTHS IN VET NAM. HARDLEY MAKES HIM A SEASONED VETERAN. I THINK AFTER HE GOT THERE AND SAW IT WAS A REAL WAR, HE JUST FLIP FLOPPED TILL HE GOT OUT OF THERE. WHO ELSE SPENT ONLY 4 MONTHS THERE, CAME HOME AND THREW THEIR MEDALS AWAY. THEN TALK ABOUT OUR SONS THE WAY HE DID, AFTER HE WAS HOME SAFE. I HAD A SON AND A NEPHEW THERE. MY NEPHEW WENT THERE TWICE. WAS WONDED BAD, I KNOW THEY DIDNT DO THE THINGS KERRY SAID HE AND OTHER SERVICE MEN DID. SOME OF THIS I'M SURE, GOES ON DURING WAR. BUT TO TALK LIKE KERRY DID IS SCANDULIOUS. I HOPE HE AND HIS RICH WIFE FLIP FLOP OFF TO SOME OTHER COUNTRY AND TAKES A LONG VACATION.. I DO THANK HIM THOUGH THAT HE DID GO IN THE MILITARY. I JUST DONT LIKE WHAT HE SAYS,JUST LIKE I DO NOT LIKE WHAT THE PERSON SAID IN THE LETTER ABOUT OUR MILITARY BEING STUPID. I HAVE A GRANDSON IN IRAQ, BEEN THERE SINCE JULY. I AM VERY PROUD OF HIM. AND HE IS NOT STUPID... I AM PROUD OF ALL OUR MILITARY. I PRAY FOR THEM EVER DAY. I WILL BE GLAD WHEN THEY CAN ALL COME HOME SAFE. GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS..GOOD BLESS AMERICA.. LAND OF THE BRAVE AND FREE.. AND GOD BLESS PRESIDENT BUSH...AND GOD BLESS ALL WHO READ THIS. AND THANK YOU FOR THIS WEB SITE.. KERRY IS ON TV RIGHT NOW TELLING HOW OUR BOYS HAVE CUT OFF HEADS,CUT OFF EARS ETC... YOU KNOW YOU'VE HEARD IT ALL. IT MAKES ME SICK EVER TIME I HEAR HIM SAY IT . GOD BLESS ALL..

I think Pat boone is completely right. The liberal media is so against Pres. Bush and anything he does. That shoulod be pretty evident by the fact that where I live, the only coverage of the Republican National Convention was by PBS and FOX, not that I would have watched ABC, CBS or NBC. FOX is the only news that covers it all and tells it like it really is. Where would we be today if Bush had not been in office as he was when NYC was attacked? We should be thanking God that we have a President with the courage to do what is right no mater what the rest of the WORLD thinks. He is very courageous as is Pat Boone for his letter. Pat just needs to be more vocal. Who needs the rest of the WORLD anyway? We sure don't. They only acknowledge the US when they need something anyway, so forget them and the UN.

I agree with you 100%. CBS certainly has created hate for Americans around the world, especially by the Arab countries. The news media talk like they know the answers to every problem they discuss . The news media certainly are not peace makersamong local issues. If some politician says something hatefull about some one, they then hold a microphone to the accused& ask: What are you going to do about it. The news media love to stir up strife. The news medeia gives away military secrets to the enemy which jeporadize the safety of our soldiers. If the news media can,t exercise responsibility, priviledges should be taken away from them!

I agree with Pat Boone on this. I said that a war is not place for the news media to be, because of the way they handle what they find out. How many times did they put our soldiers in harms way during a war, because they let the enemy and the world know what we were planning to do the next day. They think that they are doing the american people a favor by talking about the details of the war, when they are just putting our nation and soldiers in harms way. Don't we have any pride left by people who work in this county's media. If they would just tell the truth as it happens and let the people decide for them self, it would be one thing, but they always have to have their comments, as if we are all stupid and they are the only ones who are smart. Will I for one, do not and will not believe anything from the media, as they are always trying to tell me what I should think. If you hear them or read their comments they do not have anything good to say, just bad, bad, bad, news. It is because of the media that our morals, our way of life, and our future has changed, because of the people who think that they are doing us a favor. Sorry, but they don't know right from wrong, so why should I believe anything that they say or do.

I believe Pat Boone is off track, first because we never should of been over there it was not our war and we should of kept our nose out of it. Second all that would not of happened had we stayed home and let them make peace for themselves. But since we had to get in on it and appear big and know it all I am glad the pictures came out and showed just how our military show all their stupidity and think they can do any thing and get away with it. I believe they all need to be punished for ever treating another human being as they did. Our Military embarassed us as a Nation for which we will always be looked down on, and perhaps this has happened before but does that make it right? No and I believe Bush is not a good president, and is lacking in feeling for our men who he sent over there to die for nothing. The sooner heis gone the better I will feel.

The "supposed" humiliation the terrorist "suffered" by being exposed on the news is NOTHING compared to being beheaded. And why didn't CBS show that on TV? They should have showed the world what the terrorists are really about. If anyone has doubts, go back to September 11, 2001 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are at war no matter what ppl want to call it. When prisoners are taken captive they are interogated. We as Americans have interogated prisoners in every war & police action etc. Americans captured are also interogated much more harsly than we as Americans have ever interogated our prisoners of war. For CBS to publish these pictures is an obombination. They have put every American over seas at risk & our homeland. They don't seem to care about the ppl still over there working & fighting the terrorists. War was never made to be telivised. Did CBS stop to think what Jessica Lynch went through or saw. I am sure it was worse than the pictures CBS published to the world. The Red Cross visits ppl captured & in prisoner camps. They make sure the pll in power know the conditions underwhich prisoners are kept & even those interogated. Think back to when the Iranian Hostage Crisis happened. We saw pictures of how badly beaten the hostages were. Was soneone so blind as to think that Americans never did anything like that trying to get information from prisnors about planned bombings or other attacks. Did you think we just sat them down & asked questions waiting for answers? This war & CBS put us all at risk from there lack of conscience broadcasting.

While I watch the news faithfully I believe that when any "media person(s)" put the lives of our own military (& often civilian) personnel in jeporady they taken "reporting" a step (or several) too far. While we, as individual Americans, may sometimes make mistakes the media tends to blow these totally out of proportion.

I have long felt that the news media goes too far all in the name of the first amendment. There are news items which should be "squashed" until better intelligence becomes available or not addressed at all. I really had a problem with the actual war in Iraq with the blow-by-blow accounts. The kind of info that the media likes to dole out in a very "sensational" fashion borders on acts of sedition (which I believe was punishable in the Revolutionary Way days by death) and prison. Enough is enough with the media....they only care about market share and the almighty dollar that they get from advertisers. I do believe in my heart and soul that the media's overreaction to reporting about the prisoner abuse was all the justification that those uncivilized, maniacal barbarians needed to behead our two Americans. The fault is on greed and sensationalism. America should be for Americans....and not focue on some faux pas .... all we should have said was "oops!" In times of war, there are unfortunately some mistakes made. In case no one realizes it, we have been at war with all the fanatic Islamists. They came to our shores and waged war, never caring how many innocents would die...Those barbarians could have cared less when they took down the towers and almost killed my son and three nieces (one of them actually escaped from Tower #2 since she followed her good sense and not the authorities, and well over 50 people from my village. Some insigificant treatment of prisoners....too bad...the media must be stopped...they are really unAmerican!!!!!!!!

I think Pat Boone should stick to entertaining. He is pointing the finger in the wrong direction. Sure there were abuses he says, but the "wrong" was reporting these abuses in the media. This is 'treason?' It seems that anyone who disagree's with the war that God and George declared is guilty of treason. Maybe God should have told George where the Weapons of Mass Destruction were hidden. Or maybe George should have listened to the other nations who thought economic santions were working and there was no need to send american troops in harms way.

If the government would handle things better the news media could report to us after the facts and how it had been taken care of. But they never seem to get things done in a timely manner. Why didn't Rumsfeld go to Iraq and investigate? I feel we have a right to know what is going on. If we do not know these things how can we cast our votes for our leaders responsibly? We should have never gone to Iraq anyway. That place is not worth one Soldiers life much less the 900+ who have died. Osama BinLadin is the one we should be worrying about. I feel George W. Bush went into office with a desire to finish what his Dad did not finish. I like to listen to Pat Boone sing but I do agree with him on this issue.

Here's a little morals test: You're eight years old and you have sneaked down to the kitchen in the dead of night to filch cookies. You have two stuffed in your mouth when, "Snap!", someone turns on a light. Do you: (a) Cower in the shadows and rage against the person who turned on the light, or do you (b) Confess your sins, accept responsibility, take your nocks, learn your lessons, and move on? More and more, it seems most readers of these pages, and I fear most Americans, choose (a). Any more, we're all victims -- like Bill Clinton with Monica Lewinsky, and Cardinal Bernard Law with all those buggering priests. People, we screwed up here. Big time. The bad guys here aren't CBS -- it's us. Don't blame the messenger. CBS has given us a painful opportunity to show the world what we're really made of: That we're honest, that we're open, and that we're contrite when we're wrong. How come nobody gets it? Or are we all a bunch of moral midgets here? BTW, the moral equivocation that the Iraqi bad guys are so bad that our crimes can be neglected is contemptable. To those of you who feel this way, I say you're bigger criminals than the abusers. At least those GI's showed up and put their lives on the line for you and me.

Dear Pat, I most humbly agree with every word that you have written in this letter. I too wish that the media and all other power hungry, money grubbing and rate grabbing persons or institutions would stop to think, even if just for one moment, what if it had been their child that paid the price for their actions. Would those same people still have wanted to see just how far they could push the envelope before it ripped.I think Not. For the first time in many years we have a president that has the courage and the strength to stand up to the bullies of the world, including the ones on our own soil. I thank God every day that he is in office and not another who would shift his or her opinion every time the wind blew in another opinion or better offer or cower when challenged. I also wish that those who over step the bounderies of good judgement could once again be treated like we were as children when we chose to break the rules or see just how far we could stretch them. Our parents never put up with that kind of behavior, especially in public. If more were held accountable for their actions perhaps the world would be in better shape. Thank you for the opportunity to say what is on my mind concerning this matter. I would like to leave you with one last remark. To everyone that says that we didn't find any Weapons of Mass Distruction in Iraq, (only finding fertilizers and other hazardous chemicals in suspicious places), I ask only one question. "Did "OKLAHOMA CITY" mean Nothing?" Thank you, Nita McCord Lewisville Texas.

I have no faith that persons in positions of leadership -- and who failed to lead -- would be touched by this scandal, were it not for media scrutiny. Or don't the Geneva conventions -- the law of conduct to which we subscribe, and which we violated -- mean anything? Do the International Red Cross reports of abuse not mean anything? To those who would excuse the abuses of Abu Ghraib by noting that war is hell and that our adversaries do worse things than us, to those who would lie by omission and supress the pictures, take a lesson from something someone once said to me: "Ethics are only for the easy challenges, right?" Is this what we want for our new national motto? Again, Thank God for CBS, and for freedom of the press. Tem Hornaday San Diego

He never does anything for charity and is as right wing as any card carrying neoconservative Republican. Please go back to singing "Bernadine" and "Love Letters in the Sand", Pat, or come out with another heavy metal tribute to re-start your tired career and leave politics to someone like Mike Wallace who was there during World War II and who has the guts to present the truth as it happened.

I am involved in caring for veterans who are returning from the Iraq war, and fighting terrorism is not like any war ever fought before. As far as i'm concernedm, Abi Grauve should be forgotten, those men and women were doing their job to get information. giving the prisoners coffee and donuts just won't cut it. the press has put this whole nation in perril because they are so liberal and they will sell us out to the muslims and the world in a heart beat for the money. once their freedoms are gone they will never know what they had so they won't be able to miss it.

I'm so tired of people bashing Bush. Going back to Kerry's remark of how the President just sat in that class room and did nothing for several minutes. Our President was calm , cool and collected. He didn't scare the children . I can still see the exspession on our Presidents face when they came in and told him of the towers. I see Kerry's photo with Jane Fonda and thats says it all. Look who is supporting him. The likes of Ted Kennedy who was accused of murder years ago . The likes of Bill Clinton who thinks our President ought to check his morals. When Clinton has no morals at all he thinks he has the right to judge others. When i see Hillary i would like to throw up. I think our President has high morals and has made good judgement. Granted non of us wanted our son's and daughter's to go to war this time or any other time in history but it had to be done. Kerry started this bashing and he sure can dish it out but he can't take it. If he would think before he opens his big mouth he wouldn't being saying some of the things he does. Thats his problem, he doesnt' think. With all Kerry and his wife own out of our country , and thats a very long list, can you imagine what he would do to our country if he ever got into office. We would have nothing left of our business as they would be else where in other countries. As far as Mrs. Kerry goes , my opinion is that she isn't a lady like Laura. She is like her husband with a big mouth and doesn't think of what she says before she says it.Can you imagine her as First Lady. HAHAHA

I had stopped watching CBS news back in 9/11/01. I found that the only prime time news person who was objective in his presentation of the news(at least the most objecive) was Peter Jennings. The other two prime time news men, give a personal slant to the news and try to cover it up in an attempt to be objective, but they're liberal prejudices come through and the news is slanted against our President and the values he is trying to uphold---sanctity of life for the oppressed and unborn and elderly. I have held the same opinion as Pat Boone re the photos that kept being shown over and over and over again!!!!!! They should NOT HAVE BEEN SHOWN at all. Where are the photos of the massacred peoples that Saddam Hussein and his sons slaughtered and killed with weapons of mass destruction?

Thank you Mr. Boone for writing this article. It is a scandal that the freedom of the press has been so misused by CBS. We have such beautiful freedoms in this country. We need to take care not to abuse them or they could be lost very easily by such careless reporting. I think it is a sign of immaturtity and ignorance. I know it is greed playing a big part in this behavior, but there is also a much deeper reason. There is a lack of character, and so there is a lack of respect of what this country stands for, the protection of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. WE cannot stand by and let this happen. WE need to educate and defend the meaning of the right to life and respect for all peoples. With this respect will come a beautiful union of all. Remember united we stand - devided we fall!

THANK YOU PAT BOONE FOR TAKING A STAND ON OUR NEWS MEDIA.ABOUT TIME A PERFORMER COULD ACTUALY COME OUT AND TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT TV NEWS MEDIA AND THEIR TALKING HEADS , AND THEIR MOST PRECIOUS RATINGS.ANYONE WITH AN OUNCE OF COMMON SENCE KNOWS THAT THIS IS THE MOST LIBERAL FORM OF REPORTING. THEY ONLY SHOW BAD AND MOST DISTURBING NEWS AND ALWAYS MAKE IT ONE SIDED. UNFORTUNATLY THE GENERATION THAT NEEDS TO HEAR YOUR LETTER DOESN'T KNOW OF YOU, SO THEY MAY NOT READ OR SEE THIS COMMENTARY. IF YOUR NAME WAS SPRINGSTEEN BON JOVA AND THE OTHER PERFORMERS THAT BAND TOGETHER TO PROTEST THE PRESIDENT AND THE WAR. THESE ARE THE NAMES THE YOUNG PEOPLE OF AMERICA RELATE TOO. IT IS OUR RESPONISIBLTY AS PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS TO PRINT THIS LETER AND SIT AT THE FAMILY TABLE AND DISCUSS IT WITH THEM

Thank you so much for posting this editorial on your web page. What is good for our country seems to have lost it's meaning for so many in the new media. They seem to turn to 'ratings' to be the excuse for anything they put on the air. It is truly sad to see patriotism go by the wayside. CBS is no longer viewed in my home - ever.

I agree with Pat Boones letter that the press takes too many liberties with the news regardless of the consequences. Many times---less news is more---It would be to a greater good to start publishing the "good" news that happens on a daily basis--and not tend to relish in sensationionalism.

I agree with Pat Boone about this. It is well known the medias of the world are controlled by both Jewish and Middleastern interests all striving to make things look either the best for themselves or the worse for those they disfavor. Another thing to remember is that the is no such thing as "civilians" when one nation is at war with another or with terrorist groups and their supporters. There is a clearly drawn line and casualties will be found regardless. This is the horror of war. The families and populations of either group helps to support those they are backing and can't claim to be neutral when they support and send supplies to either side. The CBS media has been completely careless and irresponsible in their actions seeking to undermine the USA. That is an act of terrorism itself in my view and should be treated as such. They merely seek the sensationalism of the moment for corporate greed for more dollars, and will create "breaking news" to do so regarless of the American lives it cost now or in the future. This is a crime. They do have a responsibility to remember the country that gives them the ability to exist and make money in thr first place. Furthermore, it is a crime of terrorism for American corporations to take jobs out of the USA as well setting up shops throughout the world instead of making things right here where these companies were permitted to exist at all in the first place. Thanks for letting me put my two cents in about all of it.

I completely agree with Pat Boone! Recently the President came to our town. I worked the event. I flipped through all three major stations -and CBS was the worst one putting a rotten slant on the President's wonderful visit to our little town. They were incorrectly reporting things, and just plain reporting things only ONE way. I refuse to watch CBS - and for that matter, the other two major networks. I will only watch FOX News anymore. It is awful what the liberal news stations do to the news - they do not report - they give propaganda!!!

Town Hall Comments

After reading ALL the comments regarding this issue (took me two hours), I've come away with a few more comments to add to what I've already extensively written. First of all, some of you have shamed Deerlake, as well as the others who have posted their opinions on this site. Why? You got to vent your spleen, right? You had the same right that they had, and that was the right and freedom to express their views. That's what makes THIS country great. The freedom to express yourself in any fashion. You'd best celebrate that freedom while you have it. And thank God. Second, non-profit organizations like Focus On The Family (Dr. James Dobson) are restrained by our government in supporting any one candidate, or risk their non-profit status. They only get to state the views of the candidate and encourage you to vote. The liberal media should have such restraints on themselves...only reporting FACTS. Read that word, you who disagree...FACTS. I'm not talking repression of the truth...I'm talking reporting what actually IS, and letting John Q. Public decide how HE wants to deal with it. We can all choose to deal with it at the election box, writing letters to our elected officials, calling them, e-mailing them, participating in townhall meetings and talking to them to their faces and other patriotic and American means. Bashing one another only helps the enemy gain a foothold. It keeps our attention off the big picture, just like the enemy designed it. It's also how the enemy of our soul operates. "Just keep their eyes off Jesus and on biting one another, and everyone watching will be turned off by Christianity, even some of the weaker Christians". That's how satan works. Third, our enemies know how to push our buttons and always seem to have the help of our media, so that sympathy for the kidnapped victim and anger at our government will be sufficiently stirred up. Sympathy for the victim...yes! Anger at our government...why? Why aren't we angry with the terrorists? They are using the media to get what they want...not just America to leave their country, but to crush the infidels...you and me. We believe in the American dream. They hate everything regarding freedom, free enterprise, free thinking, free education and anything else free. Fourth, there are people within our own government...elected officials included...who are leaking sensitive information to the media. This has been found out over and over. The only time you find out about it is when the media wants you to know. Makes you wonder which side they're on. And last, why can't the media be part of the heroes who are truly working to bring peace. Whatever happened to building your story, making deals with sources to keep things quiet, in order to get the big "scoop" on their competition? Then, after the event, the media has ALL the facts and tells you the step by step on how they helped nab the criminals. Now, the media makes deals with terrorists and don't wait to get the whole story. They don't want to catch the crooks anymore. They protect the position of the enemy in order to be assured of continuous fodder for their rags. Truth? They wouldn't know the truth if it kissed them on the nose. Everyone who is a Christian needs to keep their focus on the real problems. They're alot closer to home than the White House. If we, who are the called, would take a more active interest in our communities and step up to the plate, the liberals wouldn't be filling all the gaps we have made in our exodus from "all the evils of the world". We are in the world, but not of it. This is NOT our home. We are pilgrims passing through. Have you forgotten who you are in Christ? My suggestion...the majority of YOUR reading needs to be in the Bible, not in the papers or on TV. Turn the TV off and spend time with God, reading His Word. Then, get involved in YOUR community. You don't like the way things are, change them. If EVERY Christian did this, we wouldn't be bashing one another, arguing over which candidate is the best. They ALL have faults and NONE of them will please all of you. Start being Christians, instead of acting like one. Live the life of freedom that only Christ can give. If you put all your faith in the media or the government, and trust everything you hear, you will be deceived every time. Put your trust in Jesus Christ. I'm hungry for the word of God and my roots are in Hungary. That makes me hungaryone2002@yahoo.com if you want to discuss this further. <*)))>< God Bless America...Please!

We may be told to keep certain things hush hush and then within days if not hours, you hear the news broadcaster bring you "Late Breaking News" with a smile. And all along our deployed troops are put in even more danger due to outraged citzens. Are they stupid? HELLO! Don't they have a conscience. For once I can say when things happen like this it embarrasses me to say I'm American. Do you hear or see the other countries selling themselves out for ratings?

We need more to speak out at about the obvious propaganda that CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and other channels are putting out. They are the propagandists.

Pat Boone's comments are a reflection on the whole news media. There are issues in war that just happen because war is war. While I do not totally support Bush's war in Iraq, I certainly don't want to do anything that would jeopardize our soldiers and general population. We have to remember that the enemy we are dealing with over there in Iraq doesn't think like we do. They are used to being savaged by Hussein or one of their Muslim high clerics and will provide us with the information we need only under duress. At least we just humiliated them and didn't kill them. As to CBS, they are the real traitors and we should all be writing them or emailing them to let them know of our displeasure at how they handle most of their news reports. I suggest that we attack them with emails or letters and phone calls expressing our displeasure. If anyone knows how to contact them please put it on the bulletin board or email me at murrayhac@msn.com BM

I agree that the news media gives out way to much information. I like to know the details of situations but I realize that law abiding citizens are not the only ones that watch our news shows and therefore information is being obtained that can cause detrimental effects on the American public. The freedom of speech is a very special freedom but speech that puts the lives of our citizens at risk needs to be curtailed. We, the people, do not need the fine details of military actions. There were plenty of wars fought were the supporting nation's citizens at home did not have knowledge of the exact things that were going on from a day to day basis. Those wars in my opinion were fought in a quicker fashion due to less information being leaked on a continual information. I support President Bush in his decisions. I am against war but feel that for us to maintain our freedoms we must do something about the terrorist efforts around the world.

I definitely agree with Mr. Boone that CBS is the problem here, not our government. This is a horrible case of treason by the media against George Bush and our military, who are risking their lives for these treasonous individuals. They should be so ashamed of themselves. Of course, horrible things happen in war, and the abuse at the prison was bad, but in my opinion, CBS proved where their priorities lie by their reports, and it clearly is not with our government or trooops. I will not support the CBS network by spending my time viewing their biased and treasonous broadcasts.

Americans who believe everything that is being reported on the news are being brainwashed, politically, socially, and religiously, to accept the views of those who are doing the reporting. Shame on CBS and CNN. They are just common salesmen and they are SELLING OUT AMERICA with propaganda and biased persuasion. GOD BLESS AMERICAN AND GOD BLESS PRESIDENT BUSH! D. Abney

Thank you Mr. Boone for stating what I, and several million other Americans have been saying for years. The liberal media is SO slanted, it can barely stand. They prop each other up with ratings and use their slanted reporting to slant the views and opinions of the whole world. They have taken their freedom of the press to the extreme and abused it beyond reason. They take a little bit of truth and blow it all out of proportion. That's what a cult does, by the way. They call sin good and good evil. Partial birth abortion becomes "so-called", as if calling it that will make it not so. When they mention Christians, they are called "right wing extremists", while the liberals are painted as concerned citizens. Aren't we all concerned? As a kid, I remember Mr. Blather (Rather) reporting from the trenches in Viet Nam. I remember the horrible images that the media sent back home. I remember the media spinning the term "baby killers". I remember those young men coming home amid protesters jeering and spitting on those "baby killers". I believe that's where the media took a nose dive, and sided with the enemy. They became friends with our enemies, so they could "get the real story". They refused to give locations, so as to "protect their sources". They're doing it now with Bin Laden. They have done more to undermine the strength of this country than any president in the world. They don't realize that, by doing this, they are cutting their own necks. What was the cry, during WWII? "Loose Lips Sink Ships". My dad told me that the newspapers had that phrase printed throughout the country, so as to protect our boys as they fought to keep freedom strong. What happened to THAT kind of reporting? What happened to finding the real truth and only reporting what NEEDS to be reported, keeping the rest under wraps in order to protect our boys "over there", AND protecting our dignity and standing in the world? It IS possible to report the truth and keep it simple, not slanting it in either direction. The truth CAN stand on its own. It doesn't need sensational pictures, graphic descriptions, or finger pointing and blaming. I'm SO tired of hearing the bashing that goes on every election year. There's NO man who will make everyone happy. Look at Jesus. The Pharisees hated Him because of Who He said He was. He threatened their security and their way of life...their hold on the public. The liberal media wants us all to believe what they believe. They use their power to point the barrel of their camera and the point of their pen and shoot down the character of everyone who dares to call themself a Christian. They tell half the story, if even that much. I've seen it over and over. How about the latest blather, stating that "the Protestant population is dwindling". Why do we need to know this very important item? Because they want Christians to lose hope and stop struggling against the darkness in our land. They want us to believe that our faith doesn't work in this "modern" world. We have a dead faith. We believe in a dead Savior. We no longer have the "power" we once had in America. This is what they want us to believe. And a little bit of that IS true. That's what makes it ALL believeable. There aren't as many Christian families as their once was. But, once again, the media has helped that along. They have slowly chipped away at the foundations of the families with their sit-coms, movies, talk shows...and news shows. They have shoved the homosexual lifesyle down our throats until you can't turn around without bumping into another show, movie or sob story about how misunderstood they are. Get a grip! They are no different than any other person in America who has an excuse for their slide into sin. How come there are EX-homosexuals, if they were born that way? And no, they don't get a reverse operation to switch back. Many of them realize it for what it is...a sinful lifestyle that they gave into. I can speak from the experience of a sinful lifestyle that God has lead me out of, so I don't need any homo-phobe speak tossed at me, thank you. I don't hate them because God doesn't hate them. But, back to the media, they would have everyone in America believe that Christians hate everything that is progressive in this country and we need to be relegated to the dusty shelves of some darkened cathedral, keeping our faith to ourselves. We are hung out to dry when we try to help. It's unfortunate that a few of our Christian brothers and sisters have allowed sin to "go public" and give all Christians a black eye. The media jumps on that and gleefully plaster that all over the news, showing us all to be nothing more than money hungry, child molesting hyppocrites. I'm tired of this and I'm sure you who are Christians are too. Though I'm sorry for the length of this entry, I'm not sorry for the content. This has been bottled up in me for years and I'm so glad for this forum that allows me to express the angst I feel against the liberal media. I hope and pray for their salvation, for that is the only way things will change. For them, as well as our nation. Change needs to come from the inside before it can become visible on the outside. And that's the very reason our media needs to keep things close to the vest. By doing the kind of reporting they're doing now, they are tipping out hand to the enemy, giving them powerful information, and fueling their anger towards out soldiers. Our enemies don't operate under the same morals, beliefs or goals that we've come to understand. Their brand of freedom isn't what we've all come to know and value. They don't worship the same God we do. Anyone studying the Muslim beliefs knows that. But, the media portrays them as passive, loving and misunderstood. That may be correct, for those who are just ekking out their exsistence, making ends meet. But, not for those who have the weapons, the money and the hatred towards anything resemling Christianity. And, while America is slowly drifting from her Christian roots, the world still sees us as a Christian nation. I'll give you one last little tidbit. Guess what nations like Viet Nam and China are doing? They have underground churches that are growing at amazing rates. As they grow, they send out missionaries. Guess what their biggest mission-field is? America! You won't hear THAT on Dan Blather. Hey, I'm hungry for the word of God and my roots are in Hungary...that makes me hungaryone2002@yahoo.com if you want to discuss this further. God Bless America...keep it real. <*)))><

Pat Boone is out of his mind...We should have worried about how we looked to the rest of the world before we completely ignored our congressional mandate and the UN to go to war in the first place. CBS knows full well that the Bush administration is noted for keeping secrets. The tortures at the prison took place well before we had bodies hanging from bridges. I also feel that reservists from Pennsylvania and Virginia did not bring dogs, hoods, etc with them as standard equipment when they were sent to Iraq.. The Bush administration is ultimately responsible for decisions made in the handling of interrogation of it's prisoners... Mr. Berg was Jewish which in itself sealed his doom..My heart aches for his family and all the families of our young men and women who have died in this war. Our unelected President made the decisions that brought all this about, although we might question the media coverage we need to know as Americans how we are being represented in Iraq prisons,in other countries,and anywhere our administration has embarked on one of their quests.

I agree with Pat Boone. CBS has done a lot of harm to all Americans as well as our standing with other nations. It is about time that all news medias not only CBS show responsibility in what they report. I want to be informed about world events but not at someone else's expense. It's really sad when the news medias (this includes all of them) find it necessary to report such things just for ratings and the almighty dollar. How many other men and women have died and will die because of what they reported? It is all too easy for reporters and their bosses to report the news but not take any responsibility for the outcome. Mary Ringel

I served three plus years in Viet Nam and accused the News Media of this same condition than. The main difference between then and now is that the standards of truth and FULL reporting have fallen lower.

I solely agreed with Mr Pat Boone. They show pictures of Ben Laden in our local New York papers last week?.,Which tells me they know where this individual is roaming in the mountains of Alfganistan or near by He still is on the loose and creating havoc there today. And around the world as much as it is possible Why our intelligent (FBI) or the (Interpol) with all the technology we have nowsdays Should have hunt him down and bring him to justice as Saddam Hussein was? I cannot understand why not? Why I have to learn today Through "60 minutes" CBS !Nonetheless~I did not know yet of the letter from Mr Pat Boone.I promided from this moment on I will never watch CBS again They are not the only one whom try to lead the audience into the wrong conclusion ~ If you can believed this report~ That our retiretment benefit have been invested and used to open bussines on OIL FIELD by firm well known from USA with deversify addresses here., ~In countries that have been Embargo by the USA.

I absolutely LOVE and TOTALLY AGREE WITH Mr. Boone's comments!! I've been saying the same basic things for months, only to be scorned and/or shouted down by my peers. Maybe these liberals should read Ann Coulter's column (www.anncoulter.com) and David Limbaugh's column. I find their perspectives honest, insightful and well-researched. I, too, have been--and continue to be--infuriated by the media's handling of the prisoner allegations. And I wholeheartedly agree that they are kindergarten fare compared to what the terrorists and extremists have done. And let's not forget that during the first months of the current Iraq War, the opposition used every dirty, underhanded trick in the book--knowing full well that we are compelled to abide by the Geneva Code governing the rules of warfare. I, for one, will gladly cast my vote for President Bush--and pray with all my heart that he gets voted in for another four years!!

Town Hall Comments

Thank you for publishing this letter; I had heard about it but not read the content. I agree with Mr. Boone's analysis and feeling regarding the media and their damage to our nation. Freedom of Press and Freedom of Speech are a far cry from the liberal brain washing and patriot denegration and American bashing we hear and receive today and call news. Maybe we needed to know about the prison abuses, but rather than continuous coverage and blaming America, they should have been compared to the reality of what the terrorist have done to our people and our allies. We can not give in to this; to give in is to live as they do in Israel and Palestine and this war has been going on for thousands of years. The Muslins and Arabs do not hate us for this war; they hate us for our profession of Christianity and our freedoms, which have created our wealth and our power. I have lost my interest and trust in any major network; I occasionally watch FOX, but never CNN or CBS, the worst of the worst; occasionally local news. I quit CBS when Dan Rather gave his gutless and biased interview of Sadam Hussein, not once, but twice. As for Hollywood, I suggest boycott all of them. 95% of the good ones are dead now anyway. What will reach them except loss of their over-generous, undeserved income and socialist prestige? Boycott the companies and media that give them their platform. The best of the best of the comments herein are by H. R. Hughes and Max Friedman. Thank you for your well thought out, intelligent and well written comments. KEEP PATRIOTISM ALIVE. Christians keep PRAYING, Pray continuously and share important information-especially that God is alive and well, that He does care; He may not be a Democrat or a Republican and He has created us with a free will, but He said our choices would lead to life or to destruction. Thank you for allowing me to share and thank you for the letter and the comments herin. GOD BLESS AMERICA; We are still A NATION UNDER GOD.
