Must-See Videos and Readings for the Fourth

Happy birthday, America! I’ve got a few Fourth-related items–mostly videos–worth sharing today:

  • It’s fitting that patriot Sen. John McCain presents the GOP weekly video address this week. Enjoy!
  • “The three networks labeled food ‘patriotic’ nearly twice as often as members of the armed services (20 to 11). ABC’s July 4, 2008, broadcast of ‘Good Morning America’ featured ‘patriotic’ [potato] salad, ‘patriotic’ cobbler and ‘patriotic’ chicken wings. Viewers didn’t see ‘patriotic’ soldiers, Marines, sailors or airmen in the broadcast.”
