Kind of an odd statement coming from a guy who accepted a paid gig to be a war correspondent, but hey…it’s not like Pajamas TV is paying Wurzelbacher to be consistent or even correct.
And here’s a partial transcript just in case you can’t see the video…
Iâ€™ll be honest with you. I donâ€™t think journalists should be anywhere allowed war. I mean, you guys report where our troops are at. You report whatâ€™s happening day to day. You make a big deal out of it. I think itâ€™s asinine. You know, I liked back in World War I and World War II when youâ€™d go to the theater and youâ€™d see your troops on, you know, the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy forâ€™em. Now everyoneâ€™s got an opinion and wants to downerâ€“and down soldiers. You know, American soldiers or Israeli soldiers.
I think media should be abolished from, uh, you know, reporting. You know, war is hell. And if youâ€™re gonna sit there and say, â€œWell look at this atrocity,â€ well you donâ€™t know the whole story behind it half the time, so I think the media should have no business in it.
I do love Joe’s honesty though, because the fact that he prefers the pro-war propaganda created by the government instead of actual facts is pretty much all you need to know about him.
By the way, I will never forgive McCain for unleashing this guy on us.
