So heraldo drew a map in the sand. Oh well.

In listening about peter Arnett I heard this was his second brush with controversy. Supposedly he had a similar incident in the 1991 war.Can anyone give me details or a link?

I couldn't bring anything up.

TIA

NBC, MSNBC AND NEWS SERVICES

March 31 — NBC and MSNBC on Monday said they had terminated their relationship with Peter Arnett after the journalist told state-run Iraqi TV that the U.S.-led coalition’s initial war plan had failed and that reports from Baghdad about civilian casualties had helped antiwar protesters undermine the Bush administration’s strategy.

Arnett was fired for speaking the truth. so much for the "objectivity" of US news networks.

When there is bad news, kill the messenger....

As other posters have written, it's who he gave his statement to not what he said.

He's a respected reporter so NBC & National Geographic no longer requiring his services will not effect him, I'm sure. He could freelance. Wouldn't think he'd work for The Daily Mirror.


>"Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., said on Fox News Channel that she found the interview “nauseating” and accused Arnett of “kowtowing to what clearly is the enemy in this way.”"<

LOL Since when has Fox become a bastion of the TRUTH or would even recognize it.

You dislike of FOX clouds your view...

The things Arnett said put OUR troops in danger. By insinuating the U.S. is

LOSING the war, the Iraqi's (who live on propaganda) will continue to fight

LONGER. The truth is WE are winning and FOX in the only outlet that tells

that truth.
