    They do indeed, its always interesting to see the retarded Aust media attacking each other when one network does something stupid.
    Im not sure about the US or rest of the world but there is the beginnings of a ground swell against the media here and the utter crap and over publisation of ridiculous stories.
    The soldier in question is a great guy and has served all of us well. Yumi and George must have had a brain fart.

    We have a huge problem with the rampant media here in the States. I'm not sure if you recall the story from a few years ago about the death of Casey Anthony Casey Anthony - Wikipedia
    There's a strong belief that her mother only got off because American TV personality Nancy Grace latched onto the story and continuously forced it down the throats of viewers until it morphed into a mass of national media bullshit.

    I admit having seen the footage of Smith and thinking he had heroic proportions, but the presenters of "The Circle" must have had their heads in the sand to have missed why he had received the medal - why his story was of interest.

    Hopefully the low ratings the show is currently experiencing will lead to it's logical conclusion... the removal of the dross from the airwaves..
