Evil media at fault for low recruitment numbers

So says Lawrence Di Rita, the Pentagon's spokesman:
"That's a factor, that we're a nation at war," Lawrence Di Rita, the chief Pentagon spokesman, told reporters on Thursday. "If it's a young kid who's in high school and contemplating his future, what are his parents advising him?"

Mr. Di Rita added, "I mean, without question, when there's the kind of coverage that there has been about casualties - and we certainly mourn all the casualties, but they are covered, there's prominent media coverage of casualties in Iraq - parents factor those kinds of things in to what they want their children doing."

Hey, it's not enough that the media are rooting for our failure in Iraq, now they're driving young people away from the military? Scoundrels.
