A Simple Question

Why is it "heroic", "principled", worthy of mention by the media, and a sure-fire path to fame if a person:
While at the same time:

Those who serve honorably, bravely, and without complaint are invisible to an indifferent mainstream media; who--believing that opposition to the military is a moral imperative-- make sure you will never encounter the names or hear the everyday heroic stories of the overwhelming majority of our incredible military men and women? Go figure.

UPDATE: This pattern applies, apparently, even if the "tough questions" are completely staged. And, the Watcher links to a story about a soldier who became known for his anti-Bush, anti-Iraq rhetoric--except that it was all a lie. I'm sure that heroic and principled individual will go into politics.
