On today's show, we covered the new report on Iraq by General David Petraeus, arguing that the troop surge in Iraq has worked. We also had a look at African Americans, military education, and leadership training.
One of our guests was Gregory Black (retired Navy) who runs BlackMilitaryWorld.com a site of broad-ranging interest on troops and families.
Meanwhile, I checked out this fascinating "visual map" of the news to see how widely the Iraq news was playing. The surprising (to me) answer: not very widely. BUT (and this is a big caveat) much of the news they chart has been produced the day before. I'm eager to check in tomorrow.
A question: how do you get the news? Network television has been losing audience; the Internet gaining; and radio news, overall, just about holding steady, with a slight audience decrease. How do you find out what's going on in the world?
