Drone strikes. Cyberattacks. These are serious national security issues The New York Times raises in its coverage of President Obama's "kill list."

My first thought after reading both reports was to consider the implication of the Obama administration killing people who might otherwise have been detained, and how it could be used as a recruiting tool by our enemies.

Cable news, on the other hand, took a different approach, proving once again the difference between real journalism and fluff.
