So The Press Can Keep A Secret
The press recently broke a story that Prince Harry was on the frontlines in Afghanistan as a soldier, for about 10 weeks. This information was kept from the general public via a media blackout. Various sources in the UK media who were privy to this classified information, were asked by the Ministry of Defense to keep silent about it. They readily agreed. In today's times of media & technology, it is nothing short of amazing that this story wasn't leaked, and reported internationally as it was unfolding. Who would ever think that the headline thirsty press could be so tight lipped.
