 Discovery Network to launch The Military Channel
If the Military Channel would offer viewers a "fair and balanced" picture of war, it would contribute immeasurably to a better understanding of war, its causes and consequences.
While the Military Channel's programming schedule has yet to be determined, there will likely be the standard stuff -- old newsreels from World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War and some up-to-date reports from Iraq.
Unfortunately, instead of high-minded programming, the Military Channel is likely to fill its schedule with war movies, advertisements for war-related video games, an hour on new war toys, cooking shows with recipes culled from grizzled battlefield veterans, post-war makeovers, the Army-Navy game, and recruitment pitches galore.
