AP picture of wounded Marine Published AGAINST FAMILY WISHES

This is why President Bush banned all photos' of dead soldiers in the first place which was quickly overturned by the leftist commie Obama, and the left wing loon media can't be trusted anymore for sh** or in other words can't be trusted as far as you can throw them.

And this case proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt as the FAMILY OF THE DEAD SOLDIER along with Defense secretary Gates BEGGED THE AP not to use the photo.

Didn't ask but freaking begged and they still used it.

So much for the "family wishes" clause in the Obama order huh?

These SCUM leftists in the media have no respect whatsoever for our military and their use of the photo in question again proves it.

I won't even link to the picture in question much less print it...here's a shot of the soldier as his family wished him to be remembered

Yahoo! News: "NEW YORK – Defense Secretary Robert Gates expressed disappointment Friday at news outlets that used a picture taken and distributed by The Associated Press depicting a U.S. Marine mortally wounded in combat in Afghanistan.

The AP distributed the picture despite personal pleas from Gates and the dead Marine's family in a case that illustrated the difficult decisions in reporting on a conflict where Americans have seen relatively few images of fallen U.S. troops over eight years.

The picture, by AP photographer Julie Jacobson, showed Lance Cpl. Joshua 'Bernie' Bernard, 21, lying on the ground with severe leg injuries after being struck by a grenade in an ambush on Aug. 14, his fellow Marines tending to him. Bernard later died of his wounds.Gates wrote a strongly worded letter to AP President and CEO Tom Curley on Thursday, saying it was a matter of 'judgment and common decency' not to use the photo. A Pentagon spokesman said Gates followed up with a phone call 'begging' Curley not to use it.

After the photo was published Friday, the Pentagon released its communications with the AP.

John Daniszewski, AP senior managing editor, said he respected Gates' view but that sometimes the government and press have different perspectives."
Nice huh?
