2008 National Association of Broadcasters Speech by Tim Robbins

I’ve been saying for over 20 years that I am tired of the media’s hunger for broadcasting unpleasant news, news stories in poor taste and stories which glorify negative sensationalism. Most say we can either choose to watch these programs or simply turn to another station. However, television today is so inundated with foul language, foul behavior, and negative sensationalism that unfortunately there remains very few stations which provide excellent programming.

This is a testimonial by actor/producer Tim Robbins at the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Listen to Tim’s speech at NAB. He speaks what I feel.

Her Only Calming Source – Master Sgt. John Gebhardt

Air Force Chief Master Sgt. John Gebhardt, of the 332md Expeditionary Medical Group at Balad, Iraq, cradles a young girl as they both sleep in the hospital. The girl’s entire family was executed by insurgents: the killers shot her in the head as well. The girl received treatment at the U.S. military hospital in Balad, but cried and moans often. According to nurses at the facility, Gebhardt is the only one who can calm down the girl, so he has spent the last several nights holding her while they both sleep in a chair.

Lord, Keep our Troops forever in your care. Give them victory over the enemy…Grant them a safe and swift return…Bless those who mourn the lost. – Anonymous
