You're welcome Jeff, I'd altaulcy like to read his interview but it isn't worth signing into the mag to do so.Given how you've been treated at the World blog in the past, I'm curious.:^)
Die Hard is the greatest movie ever made.- it's a Christmas movie- it's a cop movie- it's a buddy pitucre- it's a heist pitucre- it's a drama- it's a romance- it's a thriller- it's a horror- it's a comedy- it's a disaster movie- it's a foreign language film- it portrays the unfair victimization of illegal immigrants by American journalistsand while it's not a war movie, per se, it does contain an awesome scene of military helicopters flying down the streets of LA – AND a reference to Vietnam.Mycroft
I blame the military for not geittng out the good info. While it is true that most of the good things from Iraq don't come out, and the bad ones do, it's also true that journalist will go through great lenghts to get their story. To a journalist, a story is like a mission to a soldier-they will accomplish it regardless of what they have to do. This means that if a journalist can't talk to the soldiers, he will try to contact the family. If he can't talk with the family of the soldiers, he will contact the soldiers' friends. Eventually, he will write the story based on what he has, even if it does not show the whole picture. Did you know that there are journalists desperate to get the good news out, and they volunteer to be embeded with military units, but they're treated like crap and laundried through a bureaucracy to the point that most of them just give up? At one point, Bremer had up to 250 requests from different journalits who wanted to get the good news out to be embedded with military units! When the military treats the media with contempt, the military won't be chummy with the media. Broadcasting this video was a rather foolish thing to do, but I'm talking about the big picture here.One last thing-this Duncan Hunter guy knows next to nothing about embeds. An embed is one of the best things for the military. Embedded reporters get a first-hand feel of the fatique, danger, and deprivations soldiers go through, and this instills a respect for the soldiers that can't be matched by talking heads who sit on their asses and opine. Let's hope cooler heads prevail, and Mr. Hunter doesn't get his way.
It's good that she has a satellite radio show to keep her away from home more and from swnrcieg up her kid. He's obviously got his head on straight.
