As the cable news networks go wall to wall with fresh news of explosions and anti-aircraft fire in Tripoli at this hour (3:15pmET), Fox News Channel is reporting that CNN and Reuters TV news crews were used as human shields as Muammar Gaddafis compound was attacked last night.
Pentagon correspondent Jennifer Griffin reported the new information this afternoon: We have learned that British fighter jets had seven missiles. They were in fact going to be fired from tornado fighter planes onto that compound, but the mission had to be cut short because of the presence of CNN television crews and Reuters journalists on the ground who had been taken to the site by the Libyan Ministry of Information.
Anchor Jon Scott followed up with Griffin .
Asked Scott, Let me get a little deeper into the timeline would this have been after the first two crews missiles struck, is that when the news crews were taken in there?
And what’s wrong with that?
Ignore the presence of these additional illegal enemy agents, and bombs away!
She also has “reliable” info that the UK pilot was a member of the “far right American Renaissance”.
She still has credibility?
Sometimes fate hands you a gift...
So many way to take this and run with ...... lol
I like it without the /s tag.
Another opportunity missed
Lol, don't worry, I got it!
I'd actually like to more members of the MSM join the CNN & Reuters crew in captivity...
CNN and Reuters? That’s about all they’re good for.
They finally found something useful to do, become targets instead of attacking others all the time. Karma.
Really using the term “human” a little loosely aren’t they?
Don’t forget Shepard “call me Shirley” Smith
Now CNN can serve the war effort again.
Reporters going into combat are no different from soldiers. They are all volunteers. Suck it up.
I wouldn’t have.
That’s actually one of the better uses I can think of for a CNN ‘News’ crew.
Joke’s on Libya: we have lots more radical left wing journalists where this bunch came from. :)
