Quick Thought Of The Day.

This morning, driving home from the morning workout, I was listening to an interview of Ted Koppel on NPR, who was talking about the work of journalist David Halberstam, who died this week in a car crash. I’m not very familiar with his work, but he was said to be on the forefront of rebuking the US spin of success in Vietnam during the early stages of the war, thus fostering development and support for the anti-war movement in the late sixties. While listening to this I had a thought (Uh Oh!); does this type of reporting, where reporters do not even try to accommodate the goals of our government during war, spell doom for the notion of Nationalism in a true democratic society? And is that a bad thing?
