Well folks it's getting interesting ! Like rats from a sinking ship it would seem like some of the media reps overseas have had enough of George W Bush and Sen. John McCain.

First it was Mike Ware of CNN who was lambasted for daring to dispute John McCain's rosey discription of his leisurely stroll around Bahgdad, and now it seems Allen Pizzey of CBS has committed the unpardonable sin of telling the truth about conditions in Iraq. Could it be that those reporters who regularly put their necks on the line to bring you the story over there are getting a little tired of this administration's 'Caca de Toro'? .. So it would seem !

In an interview with Brian Montopoli at CBS, Allen had this to say ..

Brian Montopoli: It seems that some reporters, including yourself and CNN's Michael Ware, have really taken umbrage at John McCain's recent comments, essentially saying that there are a lot of neighborhoods where you can walk around relatively safely. Is it fair to say that that really sort of bothered reporters?

Allen Pizzey: Yes. It's disgraceful for a man seeking highest office, I think, to talk utter rubbish. And that is utter rubbish. It's electoral propaganda. It is simply not true. No one in his right mind who has been to Baghdad believes that story.

Now, McCain and some other senators were there on Sunday, and they claimed, "Oh, we walked around for a whole hour…and we drove in from the airport. Gosh, aren't we great, we drove in from the airport." Excuse me, Mr. McCain, you drove in in a large convoy of heavily armed vehicles. The last one had a sign on it saying "Keep back 100 yards. Deadly force authorized." Every single car that they approached or passed pulled over and stopped, because that's the way it is. When one of those security details goes by, every ordinary person gets the hell out of the way, in case they get shot.

If he did walk around that market, and I didn't see him do it, and he didn't announce he was going to do it, you can bet your life there were an awful lot of soldiers deployed to make sure that nobody came near that place. He's talking rubbish. And he should not get away with it.

After using terms like discraceful, and rubbish, and idiotic claims, one has to wonder if the 'bought and paid for' media's loyalty is cracking at the seams.

He went on to say ..

"If the administration makes idiotic claims, or claims that are patently, to us on the ground, wrong, why should we not report that they're wrong? All we're doing is reporting what we can see and understand."

Makes perfect sense to me ! Now all we can hope for, is that some of the media over here will grow the 'cahonas' to tell this idiot and his handlers that he's as naked as a jay bird and we can see right through their propaganda machine!
