Being a Real War Correspondent

A few days ago, Samuel Wurzelbacher got ‘a taste’ of pseudo-reporting for Pajamas Media with a comment from yours truly:

The saddest thing of all – Joe the Plumber to Gaza to report.   Talk about totally trivialization of what’s going on currently in Gaza.  If Joe, the fucking plumber, can ‘report’ well then, it’s not important.  And then to open his mouth and speak to the media reporting during the ‘time of war’ or conflict.  First off, he doesn’t know the Constitution or the guarantee of knowledge to be available the American people via the press nor does he apparently understand the concept of accountability.

Today, Rick Sanchez of CNN laid into Mr. Wurzelbacher regarding his cojones in the dismissal of the media’s role in government or, ya know, jus’ reportin’ the news.
