Largest Re-Enlistment Ceremony Ever – But It’s Not News.

Snopes says that this email regarding the Largest Re-Enlistment Ceremony – Ever is true and yet how many people have ever heard of it because of the lax coverage?  The snopes article claims that contrary to what the email states that this event was covered but please follow their link to see HOW this event was covered with headlines like:

US soldiers in Iraq mark Fourth of July

Subdued Fourth for U.S. troops: No holiday for military, but soldiers use off-duty time to text-message folks at home

That’s coverage of the event?  If it doesn’t fit the meme then it’s not “news.”
