What literal media?

I was just watching a report on a local newscast (I think it may have actually been from CBS News, since that's who the station is affiliated with, though it's not the actual CBS station in the area) on Defense Secretary Robert Gates' proposal to cut defense spending (link goes to LAT, not the teevee news report I'm talking about), and they had bullet points to illustrate several of his proposals, each of which had a short video clip to accompany it.

One of the things Gates is proposing to cut is "military brass," and they used a clip of...a Marine Corps marching band.

Yes, I think someone who put the video part of the report together thinks that "military brass" = brass bands. Dumbass.

Update: Yup, it's a CBS News video.  I can't figure out a way to embed it, but you can see it here. The part I'm talking about is at about 0:35 into the clip.
