PRINCE HARRY, third in line from the crown of Great Britain, has been fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan.
While the British media have known about this since he reported for duty there in December, no one in Great Britain reported the story. In fact, the British media, in a rare moment of non-competitive solidarity, all agreed to withhold the story until the prince was done serving his duty.
An American blogsite, the Drudge Report, broke the news blackout of the Prince Harry story.
Which raises the question: should the press have agreed not to release the story? Were they trying to protect Prince Harry and his peers, or were they censoring the news?
As a result of the coverage, the Brits pulled Harry out of action.
