Camera Man "Unobjectively" Saves Marine's Life

I'm not sure how I missed this, but Fox News camera man Chris Jackson pulled a marine out of a burning Humvee that had been struck by an IED in Afghanistan. Could anyone see a CNN or BBC camera man pull a marine out of a burning vehicle? Just saying.

AM --

It's my belief that journalists are so invested in their worldviews that ~actual events~ occupy a small space.

Never mind the amazing good things our troops are accomplishing. Far more important that the troops are painted as baby-killers.

Perhaps I'm being too cynical. *Sigh*

Its a cynical world eowyn. I personally am trying to be as cynical as possible. Then maybe I'll be able to bring myself to vote for McCain. Not there yet though. I think it'll take several shots of vodka as well.

Bully for Chris Jackson though. He deserves a medal.

Actually, as a free-speech obsessive, my biggest beef with McCain is the McCain-Feingold travesty. But, I'm beginning to think he can't get away with it, as vocal and increasingly influential as the blogosphere has become.

So, we may be able to numb the pain with one less shot ;)

Yeah, I'm worried about what 4 years of McCain will do to my liver. Make no mistake, I would much rather McCain win, but 4 years of liberal Obama will rally conservatives (and me), while 4 years of liberal McCain will just depress conservatives (and me). Then again we made it through the Bush administration.
