Not surprisingly, given their disdain for a free and independent press, US representatives have been screaming for this reporter's head, e.g. this quote in the New York Times today:
Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Republican of Florida, said on Fox News Channel that she found the interview "nauseating." She added, "It's incredible he would be kowtowing to what clearly is the enemy in this way."In other words, reporters better shut up, report the stories they're told to and not engage in any 'fraternizing with the enemy'. They need to realize that they are soldiers too. Fighting for a favourable picture of the invasion in the minds of the American public.
This is sickening.
