Froggy Ruminations has an excellent rant on the treatment that the US military gets at the hands of the MSM. I can't say it as well as he did. Check it out. Here's a small part of his post.
What did our troops do to the left and the MSM to deserve this treatment? Was it
putting aside their families and careers in order to serve something larger than
themselves? Was it cheering when the President of the United States declared
unequivocally that terrorist were no longer going to murder Americans with
impunity? Was it for having the spine to stand up for noble purposes like
maintaining the security of our Nation and securing freedom for the oppressed?
It was all of these things.
