    Re: N.Y.T. Reporter, gets a Soldier Killed.

    I guess every reporter is a "liberal" now, and every soldier is a "conservative".

    Well, ya can't have it both ways.

    Personally, I think reporters should be able to write what they please, as long as it's true, but I don't agree that the 1st Amendment gives them unrestricted access to military operations.

    Statistically speaking, that would be true.

    Yeah, I guess those 13 years I spent in the service don't mean jack ****; didn't learn a thing.

    Nevermind that most reporters are Libbos and most military members are Connies.

    Can we really lay all the blame on the reporter? Someone had to make the decision to send ppl in to get him. They could have told the guy to go there at his own risk, that they wouldn't be able to help him if captured.

    Actually, a big part of the reason is the military gets good press out of the deal.

    No, it would not. You might be able to make the argument that most reporters are liberal, and that most soldiers are conservative, but neither is true by a wide enough margin to just make the assumption that a soldier is conservative, or a reporter is liberal.

    I'd say that getting captured by enemy Primitives and getting you head cut off while the act is being video recorded for the web pretty much constitutes "full access to the battlefield."

    That pretty much say's "Liberal."

    Conservatives still cling to silly, outdated ideas like "evil savages are dangerous," so probably would have been bright enough to avoid them.
