Lifted from GuK:

Close your eyes and make this image: It's blazing summer heat in Ar Ramadi, and the Marines have just finished an important anti-insurgent operation. A CNN reporter is "embedded", and has been covering the action, and his cameraman has just gotten a video of a Marine sniper making a kill with his M-24 sniper rifle.

The CNN reporter waits until the Marine and his spotter have stood down, and he goes up to the sniper and sticks the microphone in the sniper's grimy face. "What do you feel when you kill an enemy freedom fighter like that?" the reporter asks the Marine.

The Marine squints some dust from his eyes, looks the reporter up and down, and says, "Recoil, sir."

Maybe someone could ask a reporter someday, "Why do you ask such stupid questions".
I've never understood why they will always ask, "how did you feel when...".

Why are we even affording CNN the protection of an armed escort into the battle? They are there for two reasons only, one is to discredit our military and our country, the other is for the monetary gain of selling the story, both cililian enterprises and as such let CNN independantly provide for the reporters safety.

This is fake.


You're very quick to condemn the media. Examine yourself first for believing this like an idiot.
