Firepower Forward - Privileges and Responsibilities

Here's the story from Afghanistan by someone who had to watch the consequences of Newsweeks irresponsible reporting. It's pretty sickening to hear all that is coming from this supposedly 'professional' group of people - reporters and journalists. Between their inherent dislike/hate of the military and propensity to write or say anything to discredit the administration this supposedly 'professional' group of people has gone over the top this week in assisting the radicals of Islam in their fight against liberty for the people of Iraq and Afghanistan.

There's also: From Powerline - JOHN adds: Linda Foley, head of the Newspaper Guild union, has picked up where Eason Jordan left off:

Journalists are not just being targeted verbally or politically. They are also being targeted for real in places like Iraq. And what outrages me as a representative of journalists is that there's not more outrage about the number and the brutality, and the cavalier nature of the U.S. military toward the killing of journalists in Iraq. I think it's just a scandal. It's not just U.S. journalists either, by the way. They target and kill journalists from other countries, particularly Arab countries, at news services like Al Jazeera, for example. They actually target them and blow up their studios, with impunity. This is all part of the culture that it is OK to blame the individual journalists, and it just takes the heat off of these media conglomerates that are part of the problem.

There's also from Powerline the Pepsico President and CFO Indira Nooyi telling the world that the U.S. is giving the Middle Finger to the world. If you haven't been aware of this I strongly recommend you go to Powerline to read up on it. It's a disgraceful exhibit of an American executive showing their anti-American bias to an international group of students. Pepsico has done "NOTHING" but post an evolving none apology by Ms. Nooyi in public relations speake gibberish. Powerline has several postings on this disgrace.

Hugh Hewitt has a number of links to postings on the the Nooyi Middle Finger story also.

Also, don't miss Hugh Hewitt's interview with Terry Moran (ABC White House Correspondent) about the Newsweek fraud plus general comments on the White House News Corp and their dislike of the military along with how most voted in the last election. It's a good look into the pathos of this group of "professionals"!
