Covering The Real Story

I had a revelation of sorts reading about Merrilee Carlson's story
(http://www.townhall.com/opinion/columns/ToddManzi/2006/03/02/188064.html). Like Cindy Sheehan, Carlson lost a son in Iraq. Unlike Sheehan, she is supportive of our actions in Iraq and has been trying to get her message heard but with little success.

That is when my revelation hit me: When an obvious news ploy by either the left or the right is heavily reported, such as Cindy Sheehan's continuous antics and the continuous news coverage she receives, then THE REAL story should be all the news agencies who give Ms. Sheehan her soapbox.

When CNN reports on the latest Sheehan activity, FOX News, an obvious example, would then pursue the CNN crew, as well as CNN's news directors and editors, to report and investigate why they think the actions of Sheehan are newsworthy.

Three points about this: 1) It might help in keeping news agencies with a bias in check, 2) it might bring attention to FOX News, or any other news agency, from other news agencies as to what the news agency is reporting on, which would likely win over more viewers, and 3) the news agency would be covering the actual news event rather than a propped up one like Cindy Sheehan’s.
