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?
Yep. Maybe threatening to send them more would be more effective than bombing.
If it were the crew from FOX, the commander in chief would have ordered a double hit
Betcha they got the coverage they covet, though. Look, if you ask one of these LSM operatives who they are, e.g., American or what?, they'll tell you "I like to think myself as International, a citizen of the world...."......The just trot this crap out when the story seems to be losing steam so they through another log on the fire. Screw them.
LMAO The Duck has piss poor Judgment,like waving a Pork chop in front of a hungry wolf,Please Mr Duckie do not throw me in the brier patch,BTW you can add ABC CBS and NBC Lackeys to the pile.
The entire world media that accepted the invites of the Gaddafis to tour Tripoli and surrounding cities were sucked into a transparent trap, freepers and others have been pointing this out since Saif Gaddafi first made the appeal and invitiation at a press conference when this started.
“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.”
It was reported by Shep, so it’s very likely a lie.
They did not have to lull the CNN crew into human shield mode when they have a perennially willing all weather volunteer like Sean Penn to be strapped to a beam.
....after all, Murdoch is a British subject isn't he...bombs for the "hometeam"!
The only reason I have no problem with this is because they probably volunteered.
Send more journalists.
I doubt it. They probably volunteered.
Bama might allow it if they were Fox reporters.

The other is burning Washington.
Our mistake was rebuilding it.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Memorialized in song here =
