It's about ratings but I also know that for the last several years I haven't paid much attention to Fox because it's all nonsense. If I knew that daily or even twice a week they were going to tell me who was killed or injured in Afghanistan I would be sure to tune in. Iraq also since there are still 17k over there and perhaps, if they did that it would make it more "real" to the public.
It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled. – Mark Twain
