Soldier on Leave from Iraq Slams Media’s War Coverage

Posted by Mike on November 25, 2005

I saw Patrick Hynes, Ryan’s brother, at their parents’ house yesterday. His reaction to the media coverage in Iraq: “Oh! So that’s what’s happening in Iraq? Oh really?” According to Pat, the media’s portrayal of Iraq does not even come close to the reality on the ground.

Seeing pictures of American soldiers playing and laughing with Iraqi children who are happy to see Americans was really eye-opening, even to someone like me who doesn’t buy the garbage the mainstream media packages as news. Of course, Pat’s comments would come as no surprise to listeners of the Laura Ingraham Show, as Laura routinely gives air time to soldiers who, like Pat, report of great progress on the ground. Nevertheless, it was different and even more heartwarming to hear the good news from someone I know.

Thank you for what you do Pat! All of the members of this website can’t wait for you to come home again. Now I will go do my Neo impersonation. (Inside joke with the Hynes family).
