No, I of course don't think you're pathetic. If the president does something that you think is a bad idea, I'm sure you have the courage to address it, or at least not deny it, rather than to try to alter the real story or throw up a smokescreen, as Ingraham is doing.
Ingraham's point was that instead of reporting from a hotel balcony in Baghdad, they need to go out through the country and talk to our soldiers and Iraqi citizens like she did when she was recently in Iraq.
And I think that the general consensus is that they, reporters from the press, are; that is how a number of them as well as other non-military types are getting attacked, kidnapped and/or killed. But even that is really beside the point.
Do right-wing pundits like Ingraham and Limbaugh really have such little confidence in the US military — the strongest military force in the world — that they think a bunch of no-good reporters are more powerful in their supposed efforts of self-defeat and erroneous reporting? That 'the Press' is the reason why we're losing Bush's war? That's ridiculous. The Bush Administration and those who helped make this war a reality are the ones to be held over the fire here, not a bunch of TV network field reporters — that's what's pathetic here. It just goes to show that the last of the pro-Bush pundits are out of all realistic arguments to defend their man.
