The president has just issued an order that is about as important as the Empire destroying Alderaan (Princess Leia’s home planet). The president is going to ignore his generals and draw down troops in Afghanistan in order to try and get re-elected.
Normally in a situation like this the media would plaster their front pages with the news and the public would be allowed to decide. Only problem, this isn’t news to NBC, ABC, CBS or MSNBC. Fox gave a smaller callout to the militaries response and USA Today gave a very small generic text callout.
