The March Through The Madness:More Libyan TV Jousting

((HT: Fox News Channel/Huffington Post))

Okay... FNC admitted a bit of a boo-boo when they said that journalists from CNN et al. were being used as human shields...

Here's the almost-apology...
((HT: "On The Record with Greta van Susteren))

But then Steve Harrigan shot back at Robertson's initial assertions in a HuffPo interview...

Harrigan also called Robertson "a hard worker," but added, "I think he's dull. I fall asleep when he gives a report." He noted that many journalists in Libya, such as the four captured New York Times reporters, the BBC reporters who were subjected to mock executions, and the Al Jazeera cameraman who was killed, had been "heroic" in their reporting—even more, he said, than he had been. But he said Robertson could not claim the same thing.

"Is that heroic what he’s doing?" he said. "He puts on his blue blazer and gets on the government bus, and then pats himself on the back and calls that news? Bullshit."

Ain't TV fun...???
