D-Day in today's media

Better late than never.

While running the kids around town today, I got to listen to the local conservative talk-radio. I really can't stand NPR. The local conservative affiliate, along with its sister pop station were instrumental in organizing information during the hurricanes 3 years back. The stations were well commendated for the work, but in the process I discovered Neal Boortz and the Drive-Time Happy Hour. (I listen to my MP3 player when Rush Limbaugh is broadcasting.)

After 9/11, I stopped watching 24 hour news. If I hear a story of interest, I may flip to station and spend a minute listening. The need to fill time results in far too much speculation and erroneous information, along with a meaningless grind of repetition. The Combat Report, at a quick glance, appears to be a website dedicated to articles and features regarding past wars. However, in what it admits is a step away from its normal content, it created a "modern" newscast for D-Day and the invasion of Normandy. Chip & Mr. PC on my local station broadcast the audio while I was heading from one end of town to the other. The quality was very poor, but I found and watched the original. It's rather sobering.

The video is 7 minutes long. Be sure to read the FACTS at the end.
