Worried about the US failure in Afghanistan? Relax, NPR's Morning Edition interviews the US Ambassador to Afghanistan, Ronald Neumann, who assures us that his security camera view from the embassy in Kabul indicates that all is well; the discontent and anger at the US you thought you saw in riots there recently are nothing but just run of the mill mob actions. Why does NPR think that the words of US government officials constitute news--especially with no counterbalancing critiques? US government spokespeople have repeatedly shown themselves to be inaccurate, biased and/or completely dishonest.
