Media Hypocrisy


This article was forwarded to me by a friend. Having, as
I do, a 19 year old son in Iraq, you can imagine how this would be of interest to me, so I’m posting it largely as it was sent to me without much rewriting:

Don’t know whether you heard about this
but Denzel Washington and his family visited
the troops at Brook Army Medical Center, in
San Antonio,Texas (BAMC) the other day. This
is where soldiers who have been evacuated from
Germany come to be hospitalized in the United
States, especially burn victims.

There are some buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher House is a Hotel where soldiers’ families can stay,
for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying
in the Hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses
on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled
most of the time.

While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave
him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how
much one of them would cost to build. He took his check
book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there
on the spot. The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear
this story and want to get the word out to the American
public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it.

The question I have is why does: Alec Baldwin, Madonna,
Sean Penn and other Hollywood types
make front page news with their anti-everything
America trash and Denzel Washington’s Patriotism
doesn’t even make page 3 in the Metro section of
any newspaper except the Local newspaper in San
Antonio?

    Check this out at Snopes.com
    It didn’t go down quite the way this email suggests.
    I usually verify forwarded emails at Snopes.
    Great site that has saved me some face in the past.
    I guess what I’m trying to say is ‘don’t believe evrything you read.’
    Nuff said.

    I really should have known better. Thanks for keeping me honest.
