Kimberly Dozier

I'm now listening to an idiotic CBS "special" on Kimberly Dozier, the CBS reporter who was severely injured last year in Iraq by a roadside bomb, and who is now recovered. She's being interviewed by Katie Couric in a simpering, maudlin style that focuses on this one CBS reporter and ignores the suffering and death of all the American and other coalition soldiers who have become casualties. I listened to many accounts over the weekend about soldiers who died in Iraq and Afghanistan - are they less important than this one reporter? There is sentimental music playing. This so-called special doesn't tell us anything about the Iraq war - instead it's manipulating our emotions so that we "feel" for Dozier and her crew. How much money and time did CBS waste putting this special together? Consider the real reporting they could have done instead.
