Yes. I think so too.

What goes on in the minds of famous folks? Lots of la-la-la la-la-la la-la-la-la-laaaaa.

Appearing on State run Iraqi teevee, Peter Arnett decided to appear on a propaganda tool, not an independent or objective news source - just a vehicle for more lies to be distributed to the population to leave the gobsmackingly ignorant about the world in which they live and increasing contempt in which they are held. (Yes, contempt. It begins. Rise up already or just surrender, you dumb fuckers. You know you cannot win. Sheesh.)

He seems to think Iraqi run teevee no different from a cable channel in the US or the BBC World News. Blah blah, the war is awful and we are losing. Wha'? Sacked. Of course. That is a sackable offence for a journo. We are not dealing with some stupid Kingstonian declaration of the end of the world. We are dealing with a journo who fed, gently and making littloe airplane noises, brutal Ba'ath bastards a good ol' line of US self-loathing in a time of war.

What a jackass.

The MSNBC Pres said:

It's just inappropriate and arguably unpatriotic for an American to be communicating these things to the Iraqi government and the Iraqi people," ...

Asked how much of a priority patriotism should be for an objective journalist, he said, "When you go on state-controlled television after Iraq's vice president promised to send terrorists into your country, I do think some patriotism is appropriate in this instance."

He is right.

And then Rivera - sacked for giving up military positions. Good.

Idiot. Too patriotic, one might say.

I do not know who the stand out journo is for me thus far on the teevee. But I do like Alessio Vinci CNN.

Hmm, wonder why?
