the funny (and pathetic) thing about media is that they reduce something that is extremely complex into a statement of representation. like reducing Tiananmen square to just that one tankman photo taken completely out of context, or terrorism into just some fanatic full of hatred, or bush into an idiot....why do they do this? because we the public are too dumb and lazy to actually learn the truth. the public attention span is about 5 seconds, with that 5 seconds the only thing you can do to get the message across is generalization. 99% of the viewers will prolly fall a sleep if you try to explain to them what REALLY happened.
