Juxtaposition of the day

Last night I was watching CNN Headline News. The story about the video apparently showing an American pilot being dragged away from his crashed helicopter was shown, complete with the U.S. military's reaction: "We are outraged that anyone would create and publish such a despicable video for public exposure. The terrorists continue to demonstrate their immoral disregard for human dignity and life."

The very next item broadcast was a U.S. military "snuff video" showing three presumed Iraqi resistance fighters being "taken out" by a Hellfire missile fired by a remote-controlled unmanned drone as they were apparently planting a roadside bomb.

Amazingly, this placing of matter and antimatter in such close proximity did not even result in the newsreader batting an eyelash.
