    Dear CNN,
    If you don't know what you're talking about (which is usually 99% of the time) then don't bother reporting it until you have the facts.
    Firstly, those children who were murdered by these terrorists were not murdered for "going to school" – they were murdered because these were children of family members in the armed forces, the very same armed forces who happen to be fighting these terrorists in YOUR War on Terror. I am not being an apologist for the Taliban, I wish nothing more than for them to be completely destroyed, but when you misinform the public about why these kids died, it's a slap in the face to our military who have sacrificed the MOST. 60,000 soldiers + civilians have died in this war in Pakistan...no other country has sacrificed that much.
    Secondly, NO hospital in Pakistan indulges in gender discrimination. The reason why you see mainly injured boys in the hospitals is probably because all the causalities and injuries are boys! When the boys school gets attacked chances are the majority of the injuries and causalities will be males.
    Thirdly, the "Pakistani Taliban" leadership all reside in AFGHANISTAN...the very same AFGHANISTAN your NATO is controlling. This might be a good time to go after them.
    Western media has done a wonderful job in painting our country something that it is not, and in the times of such unthinkable barbaric attacks, you folks still can't get off your agenda in making us look like the boogeyman.
    Please learn how to REPORT the news, not MAKE the news.
    Thank You

    special thanks to Naeem Sarwer my X colleague

    Your interview with the Medal of Honor winner was good for the country to hear. I think his message is: America do not allow "a bully" or a "bully organization" to change who we are as a nation. We have been taught to be independent and free. We must resolve not be run by bullies (emotional, financial, or military). ISIS must understand that we– men, women, and the young CAN if we put our collective minds to do so will whip them into a position where they admit their real self-A large criminal organization that does not respect laws, values, behavioral constraints from anyone or anything including their "OWN RELIGION'.

    Please do not take this to be racist. I watches your show. like today and many times before you lean white or give a better face to a situation when you know that a white done something really bad. Like in Baltimore, you hinted that the black that was killed that it was his fault or he helped in his demise. either you are willfully ignorant are just don't believe that a white is cable of that sort thing done to MR. Gray. you also believe that the young man in Ohio who begged to be kill by a policeman it would been the same if the white guy was black. Whites do bad things too mam. It just that the out come is difference when he is black. If you been raise around whites all your life then I am talking to paper. You don't get it!
    Humans are very tribal and all races do bad things to others it just that white has the worse track records; whether it' toward the Jews in Germany or toward blacks in America. Since they control the media bad thing that white is not reported or the best face is put on it.
    White will hurt themselves if they thought it would keep a black from succeeding. if you don't believe that look at the nearly 8 years Mr. Obama has served this Country. They have shut down the Government. They prevented him from appoint his people in office and hurting American. They prevent infra-structure from be done. they believe that might help him when it help Americans first! I can go on but you know all of that. they have tried to run his presidency from the office the congress. What do you have to say to that!
    I still watch you show because you only show that part of you when race come in to play. You have that Auchie Bunker mentality.
    Keen up on what have blacks done for this country so that you won't look so stupid! If you ever do that you will see that what whites have told you all your life about black is a lie. Nevertheless, I love you show. You are very pretty to look at and most of the time you are fair I am not a writer so excuse my writing.
    you hurt me when I see you do that and yet I watch your show. Please stop that! Don't be so tribal! Check your racism at the door before you come to work, please! I want to see you not who you are!. Thank you for listening, ken
