The difference between my view of morality and that of the corporate media.
The corporate media are professing to be shocked and appalled at the immorality of Janet Jackson showing her bare breast during halftime at the Super Bowl. They didn't seem to shocked or outraged by the little Iraqi children blown apart by cluster bombs or suffering cancers and birth defects from depleted uranium. They expressed no great dismay at the thousands of Iraqi children who died of starvation and disease due to the US embargo of Iraq. Their morality didn't seem to be very offended by the little Vietnamese girl running down the road with napalm burning into her body. They don't seem to be very embarrassed by years of ignoring and covering up CIA covert actions involving death squads, drugs, torture, overthrow of foreign governments, disappearances and mass murder.
Instead, they actually glorify war at Super Bowls with military planes conducting fly overs, military parades, commercials for the army, sports announcers praising the troops and interviews with the President. The corporate media and many in this country have a very distorted view of morality. Killing, burning, blinding, disfiguring and maiming children for the profits and power of US oil barons is terribly immoral. Janet Jackson's bare breasts are not.
