The Air Force’s prized F-22 Raptor fighter jet has yet to see action in combat against foreign enemies. So far, it seems, the jet’s fiercest foes have been the news media, according to the general who oversees the program. “The press” has been guilty of perpetuating myths and untruths about the F-22, Air Force Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Reimer said at an Aviation Week conference in Washington, D.C. He complained about news stories that depict the F-22 and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter as interchangeable, when they are not. Reimer also was displeased by stories that, in his opinion, undervalued the savings that the Air Force would reap from a multiyear production contract for F-22s, which cost $150 million apiece. Reimer lamented that the program’s “baggage” continues to dominate news coverage.
