Linda Foley Starts Easongate II

This is outrageous. Ms. Foley needs to either provide proof of her allegations, or she needs to shut up!

May 19, 2005

The president of a group representing reporters worldwide is accusing U.S. soldiers of committing atrocities without offering any evidence to back the charge up.

Appearing in St. Louis on Friday, Newspaper Guild President Linda Foley complained:

“What outrages me as a representative of journalists is that there�s not more outrage about the number, and the brutality, and the cavalier nature of the U.S. military toward the killing of journalists in Iraq.”

In case anyone missed the point, Foley restated her allegation:

“They target and kill journalists … uh, from other countries, particularly Arab countries like Al -, like Arab news services like Al-Jazeera, for example. They actually target them and blow up their studios with impunity. …”

Foley’s remarks, which were aired Wednesday night on Sinclair Broadcasting’s “The Point,” drew outrage from the program’s host, Mark Hyman.

“These completely irresponsible remarks speak for themselves,” Hyman told his viewers. “Foley should immediately deliver evidence that supports her horrible allegations or she should immediately resign as Newspaper Guild president.”

The Sinclair host added: “Unfortunately, the damage may have already been done. Her remarks could lead to further bloodshed, including against Americans.”

What a great time to be a citizen blogger! While the arrogant fourth estate implodes, we get to monitor their every unsubstantiated pronouncement.
