So I'm watching on CNN, and it shows the "compound" that they are keeping Saddam in.

So they show these armed guards with itchy trigger fingers..

The reporter starts off by saying, "The security is very tight, the guards have been told, shoot to kill on site all unauthorized personalle, no exceptions. There a yellow line which nobody is allowed to cross" (Pan camera to yellow line)

THEN... The reporter attempts to cross the yellow line, and is met with muzzle of an M16 shoved almost in her eyeball..

The cameramen you can see is trying to tell the armed guard that he and she are both reporters (like the guard cares :rolleyes: ) and there's a minor scuffle, of course, all caught on tape.

The man with the gun won, and they finally crawled behind the yellow line, in which the reporter started to comment "As you can see, the air is filled with tension and hostility.."


Which part of shoot to kill did they not understand? Do they think this is a joke? Did they kind of miss 9/11 all together? It was all I could do to not spit at the TV.

I was in a restaurant and wanted to ask them to change the channel, it was ruining my dinner.

As I was leaving, they replayed the dribble and comments like "one can only imagine the type of treatment Saddam is getting.." :barf:

With CNN who needs enemies??:fire: :cuss:

The sky is blue

The sun rises in the east and sets in the west

Grass is green

So like your post is some new revelation?

You think they didn't understand what reaction they would get? And that they were not deliberately provoking it?

Review Child Psychology 101. It's all in there.

A few months ago I saw a clip where the reporter was among Palestinian gunmen wearing ski masks. The camera panned to an Israeli tank about 100 yards down the road facing them. Suddenly the tank opened fire & the reporter started screaming about how she was being fired on by the Israelis.

Actually it looks like they DID get some special treatment that they probably shouldnt have. I mean the orders were "shoot to kill" not "remove from the area". I'd say the reporter should be rather thankful that the soldier ignored an order in the interest of not killing him.

Yeah, I wasn't trying to provide news that THR didn't know, just needed to vent:mad:

People ask me, "why don't you own a TV?":rolleyes:

"As you can see, the airwaves are filled with arrogance and stupidity.."

Yeah, that about covers it.

The Leftists in the media believe that they are special and above the law. The rules are for the peasants, or huckleberries, as they call their audience.

This incident just shows the restraint and discipline of our boys and the arrogance of the anti-American media.

What would suck is if the boyz got chewed out because they DID give the reporters special treatment. Shootin' them would have been ok with me. That would have given me confidence to know that the shoot to kill applied and they meant business..

It's like, if there's no news, let's make it up as we go along..

CCN Reporters HAVE NO BRAIN Don't be so easy on them. They do have brains, but fail to use them. Don't coddle them with the excuse that they have no brains. That implies its not their fault. :neener:

RE: "...reporter hanging out with Palestinians looking down muzzle of Israeli tank nearly "smoked".....:D

Now, THAT's funny!

(Pardon my stinkin' lack of compassion for idiot media reporter:neener: )

Is there any chance somebody has a link to this clip? I'd love to see it.


December 26, 2003, 12:46 PM
Should've put one through the left eye. :rolleyes:

Nice attempt to provoke an over-reaction. Cameras everywhere. Lots of bystanders to take a hit from over penetrations. Yep, typical sixties pinko tactics.

The faces have changed but the same old goals.

cnn should have their press passes suspended and when reinstated, all should be searched for bombs before access to any government press release. An enemy combatant is an enemy combatant regardless the employer.
