Perhaps because they felt a need to "balance" coverage of Mrs. Sheehan, Day to Day
aired this Mike Pesca report: Military Families React to Sheehan's Iraq Protest
I don't want to pick on them but, serving members of the military are required by regulation not to express political opinions. Your career can be ended by saying the wrong thing. People have already lost their jobs by being "outed" as serving members while making less than complimentary statements about the conduct of the Bush administration.
You can support the President all you want in uniform under these people, but be negative and you are gone. It's not exactly a surprise that families of serving members rarely say negative things about the current crew.
If you look at the news page at Marine Parents
, you can see that they have been Bush supporters and frequent media guests. For the spokeswoman to complain about Mrs. Sheehan "going public" is rather hypocritical.
The could have interviewed Military Families Speak Out
, about the situation, but that wouldn't have provided the "balance" they were looking for in this piece.
