D Day

June 6th, 1944

It's been 61 years since the Allies launched the Invasion of Normandy. I wonder what CNN coverage of the carnage would have done to moral at home. Would the US have had the fortitude to go all the way to Berlin with talking heads racking up the body count on the nightly news? What if Oliver Stone and George Lucas had been making movies in the '40s, depicting the peaceful residents of Dresden being incinerated by Allied bombers and heroic Luftwaffe pilots leaving their families to defend their country from evil Imperialist Americans?

What if Hitler had been captured, and the tabloids printed pictures of him in his tighty-whities?
