What We Don't See on TV

Still blaming the messenger. Why are there horrible images on our TV screens?

emptypockets:

President George W. Bush raised nearly half a million dollars for Representatives Jim Gerlach and Mike Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania last Wednesday at a $1000-per-ticket fund-raiser. Here is what he said.

A battlefront in the war on terror is, of course, Iraq. And people in our country are unsettled because of the war, and I understand that. I fully understand why people in America are disquieted about what they're seeing on their TV screens. There's a concern about whether or not we can win. There's no doubt in my mind we will win...
The enemy cannot defeat us on the battlefield, but what they can do is put horrible images on our TV screens.

Can you help us out?
