Joe the Plumber: ‘I think media should be abolished’ from reporting on war.

5:12 pm - 01/11/2009
Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, aka “Joe the Plumber,” is currently in Israel covering the war for the conservative site PJTV.com. When asked what he has learned from his new experiences as a journalist, Wurzelbacher said that he believes the media shouldn’t be allowed to do “reporting” on wars:
I’ll be honest with you. I don’t think journalists should be anywhere allowed war. I mean, you guys report where our troops are at. You report what’s happening day to day. You make a big deal out of it. I think it’s asinine. You know, I liked back in World War I and World War II when you’d go to the theater and you’d see your troops on, you know, the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy for’em. Now everyone’s got an opinion and wants to downer–and down soldiers. You know, American soldiers or Israeli soldiers.
I think media should be abolished from, uh, you know, reporting. You know, war is hell. And if you’re gonna sit there and say, “Well look at this atrocity,” well you don’t know the whole story behind it half the time, so I think the media should have no business in it.
Watch it:

"Abolished". Yeah I don't think that's quite the word you were looking for Joe. Besides, if they "abolished" the media, WHERE WOULD YOU GET YOUR 5 MINUTES OF FAME?????????!

Yes, let's take some of the media presence out.

Starting with you, Joe.

I misread "Samuel" as "Senator" and almost had a heart attack

But yeah, GTFO 'Joe'

“I bet they're taking quick showers, I know I would. I mean, you can't plan your day, you can't take a picnic.”

Joe, speaking about people hiding from bombing

There isn't enough *facepalm* in the world.

How the hell does he know what happened in WWI and WWII?

Shorter Joe the Plumber, "I liked it better when I was an ignorant fuck."

"Oh, wait!"
