Taking the medal ceremony off air was disrespectful

On Tuesday, 24 exceptional Americans who each represent literally one in thousands received the highest honor this nation has to bestow. Each of them suffered grievous wounds in mortal combat, ranging from World War II to the present, but they were unceremoniously cut off the air during the presentations.

The reason? Apparently it was considered more important by alleged news programmers or experts — who really knows — that we be told once again that they still know nothing about the disappearance of an airliner other than it was still missing. Again they recapitulated the “no longer news” information they have been repeating ever since the aircraft went missing.

It is my admittedly prejudicial and angry opinion that they committed an appalling insult to every member of our armed forces, present and past, in this blatantly dishonorable decision.
