Michelle Malkin speaks truth to power:
If a community organizer can be president and a Saturday Night Live comedian can be a U.S. senator, why can’t a plumber be a reporter?[…]
As to the media hounds now braying at the idea of hiring celebrities for the sake of publicity, which network was it that hired foul-mouthed entertainer with no anchoring experience Kathy Griffin to co-anchor its New Year’s Eve coverage?
CNN had Kathy Griffin co-anchor its New Year’s Eve coverage, so who is CNN to mock a PJTV for sending a semi-literate, unlicensed plumber to cover a war? Got that?
And this should be a slap in the face to those of you don’t believe that conservatives engage in real journalism:
LGF and Bob Owens broke the story of CNN’s broadcast of suspicious Gaza footage featured two pro-Hamas doctors engaging in medical theater of jihad — by faking a bizarre form of CPR on a Palestinian boy who “died.” CNN, which heaped derision on JTP for taking on the role of reporter, has yanked the video. More on one of the jihadi apologist zealots, Dr. Mads Gilbert, at FNC.[….]
So now we know:
Finding secret prisons in eastern Europe — NOT JOURNALISM.
Finding flaws in 30 second CNN clips — JOURNALISM.
Update: In fairness, we should all remember that Bob Owens did some of the best on-the-ground disaster coverage this side of Anderson Cooper (@blogenfreude).
