I've Had It With CBS

As if the Mainstream Media isn't in enough trouble already, and as if CBS itself hasn't suffered enough for its own blustery boondoggling, now this:

A CBS photo-stringer was arrested today by American MPs in Iraq for--it is alleged--he is an insurgent (or, for you who are more comfortable, a terrorist). And the evidence is pretty damning: "One official said at least four videos in the man's camera show roadside bomb attacks on U.S. troops. All had been shot in a manner that suggested the cameraman had prior knowledge of the attacks and had scouted a shooting location in sight of the target."

Bastard. I can't count on both hands the number of journalistic ethics lines that blatantly crosses.

And that's the least of it: He's the enemy!

This only bolsters the criticism the AP took earlier this week for its Pulitzer photo shot by a stringer who Powerline suggested was of the same ilk.

I'll continue defending good journalism, but I'm running out of protaganists.
