On Shooting Journalists, Reversing the Loaves and Fishes, and the Pope

Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives

Here's a couple of entertaining posts for early morning fair:

- From Chrenkoff
Greyhawk is all over the story of a CBS cameraman arrested by the US forces in Iraq on suspicion of cooperating with the insurgents - gives a whole new meaning to the word "stringer", doesn't it? - thus arguably putting a stop to brilliant career that might have eventually led to a Pulitzer prize. In the future, why not cut out the middleman altogether and give the prize straight to the man who videotapes the beheadings; he classifies as part of the media, doesn't he?

On a separate issue, while you are at Chrenkoff's, check out
his take on the Pope's funeral running into billions and how Radio Australia does the reverse loaves and fishes trick and  shrinks the occasion.
