Who’s side are they on, anyway?

Arthur Chrenkoff notes two items April 9 that relate to ‘attitude’ of the public. Another blog noted that the major media may not realize the depth of their problem that many Americans see the media as anti- US. The latest stimulus or example was the story of a CBS cameraman arrested by the US forces in Iraq on suspicion of cooperating with the insurgents. On the press side, this incident contributed to a request for an independent commission.

The spirit of Eason Jordan leaves on. Record number of journalist deaths might have something to do with record number of journalists covering the insurgency and terror campaign, but there obviously many in the media world, particularly outside of the US, who seem to think that the American Army is shooting journalists left, right and center for the fun of it, and they won’t be placated, not just until an independent commission in established, but unless such commissions confirms their suspicions.

Another post illustrates how the anti-war protestors are no longer being seen as heroes but rather with contempt. All too often they are getting arrested or killed in actions against the enemy. Instead of thinking that, just maybe, they shouldn’t be hanging around with the enemies of the US they condemn the US for having the audacity to attack and remove its enemies.

As Marc concludes, “If you decide to decline my offer, then at least you should sleep well tonight knowing that men wearing black facemasks and carrying AK-47s yelling ‘Allahu Akbar’ over here are proud of you and are forever indebted to you for advancing their cause of terror. While you ponder this, I’ll get back to the real ‘die-in’ over here. I don’t mind.”

The link is that the collegiate age anti war protestors and the media are often seen as two birds of a feather. They are people who don’t seem to care who’s side they are on.
