NBC Drama Includes Shot at "War Founded on Lies"

We interrupt our regular programming for a left-wing blast at American foreign policy.

About three-fourths of the way through last night's ER on NBC, a character giving a dinner table blessing began her prayer with rhetoric that could have been lifted from MoveOn.org's Web site: Thank you, Lord, for the blessings we are about to receive. Look over those now who cannot be with us, including the countrymen who fight to protect us in an overseas war founded on lies told to us by our government.

Up to that point, there had been no discussion of the war or politics at all (the main plot line was about a sick baby monkey being treated secretly by the ER docs). After the anti-war protest, the story resumed without any further political references.
The long-running NBC medical drama has a history of salting its script with left-wing talking points. Last year, two characters were discussing what to name their baby when the father suggested "George." His girlfriend declared the name unsuitable because it belonged to "the current occupant of the White House."

ER is still on? Quit watching after the first season. Plot was stale and they did everything they could by that point.

Why do you care about some TV show?

Their wrong, but big deal.
