The MSM, still the "useful idiots" of the foes of civilisation

Mr. Reynolds found the real story that CNN was trying to bury in the details.

The U.S. military reported Saturday that a CBS News stringer detained after a gunbattle between U.S. forces and insurgents this month "tested positive for explosive residue." "Multinational forces continue to investigate potential collaboration between the stringer and terrorists, and allegations the stringer had knowledge of future terrorist attacks," said Sgt. John Franzen of Task Force Freedom in Mosul.

Mr. Reynolds writes:
It's going to be bad for journalism, if people get the idea that major-news correspondents may be terrorist moles.

Indeed.
