MSNBC's Chris Hayes sparked controversy and debate on Sunday when he said that he felt "uncomfortable" calling soldiers killed in action "heroes" because the term can be used to justify potentially unjust wars. He later apologized for the statement.
Its hell having to apologize when one is right and its just the network being cowardly.

I think this quote from the HuffPo comments is worth repeating:
Quote:
I'm not uncomfortable with calling soldiers "heroes" - I'm uncomfortable with the military and politicians calling soldiers "heroes" and then treating them like dirt.
