Apparently the media still hates the US military, because it insists on continuing to print stories about coverups, mistakes, torture, and lack of recruitment. The fact that the media has pictures, documents, and other pieces of evidence only makes it worse.
You know, in my grandfather's time, the military stressed honor over everything. Forget torture - you could be cashiered for bad manners. A soldier was supposed to be a gentleman. A soldier WAS a gentleman - he would have resigned rather than cover up a mistake, or torture a prisoner.
Maybe if the military was placed back under the control of soldiers, rather than uniformed businessmen, bureaucrats, and politicians, it would change into something less contemptable.
And the nasty ol' media would stop printing all those facts.
