How today's media would have covered D-Day

So accurate, it's downright eerie.

Reporter: ...the initial reports we're getting from the beach are grave. In your opinion, General, can the beach be taken?

Analyst: I... I don't think so. At least not the way we're doing it. Hey look, if we came in at night, if the weather was better... all these maybes and and ifs, possibly, but the way we're doing it, in broad daylight, full-on frontal assault, on these heavily defended beaches, I would have to say no way.

If today's mainstream media had operated then, we'd all be living in the land that Philip K. Dick described in The Man in the High Castle.
