Reporting on Trump’s Afghan Escalation Omits Dead Afghan Civilians

Adam Johnson

As President Donald Trump tries to make the case for staying indefinitely in Afghanistan, the stakes for those actually living there are rarely broached by US corporate media.

All Americans should be filled with shame, sorrow and rage over what we have done to these poor people who never did anything to us. Shame on the media for not talking about what it’s like for them.
It must be said, however, that the media is now mostly Corporate, therefore “market-driven” ( God, how I hate that phrase), and would presumably show us the Afghan people’s side if there was much
interest among the public-at-large. Something’s wrong with us, as a society.

Trump is America.
America is Trump.

Our government leaders are war criminals, the media are aiders and abettors, and we, insofar as we remain silent, are complicit.
