SKEWED NEWS A pass along

I am honoring the request of the author of this piece to pass it along. See what you think.

Subject: Talk About Skewed News!!! Further proof that the American media cannot betrusted. Share this story with as many people as you can. We've GOT to do everything possible to ensure that our next President is chosen by the PEOPLE; not the media! Just in case you happened to see the ABC News (if you watched ABC News) with interviews of 5 military folks in Iraq - 3 planned to vote for Obama and 2 for Hillary; no mention of any McCain supporters. Well, here's the 'Rest of the Story.' This is fromMajor General (ret) Buckman. My niece, Katelyn, stationed at Baluud , Iraq , was assigned with others of her unit, to be escorted/guarded/ watched out for Martha Raddatz of ABC News as she covered John McCain's recent trip toIraq . Katelyn and her Captain stood directly behind Raddatz as she queried GI's walking past. They kept count of the GI's and you should remember these numbers. She asked 60 GI's who they planned to vote for, in November, '08. 54 soldier's said John McCain, 3 for Obama and 2 forHillary. Katelyn called home and told her Mom and Dad to watch ABC news the next night because she was standing directly behind Raddatz and maybe they'd see her on TV. Mom and Dad of course, called and emailed all the kinfolk to watch the newscast and maybe see Katelyn. Well, of course, we all watched and what we saw wasn't a glimpse of Katelyn, but got a hell'ava view of skewed news. After a dissertation on McCain's trip and speech,ABC showed 5 GI's being asked by Raddatz how they were going to vote in November; 3 for Obama and 2 for Clinton. No mention of the 54 for McCain .
