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.

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

"Oh, wait!"

I hope this guy is single and childless. He should be abolished from contributing to the gene pool.

*fixed: "abolished"

So, the media shouldn't do its job?

... Then where the hell would you go for your ever-lengthening 15 minutes?

It's like a reality show. But it's real. Are we getting punk'd?

I wish he would crawl into a dark hole and cease to exist.


And take that Palin person with him.

So, according to Jay the Pee, we should abandon actual coverage of wars and go back to relying on propaganda films.

Someone accidentally shoot him, please.

he's so tragic it's almost funny... but not. I agree with the untimely death as long as the though police don't come to get me.

This could easily be the most stupid thing he's said so far...although I might have missed some other brain fart...

I don’t think journalists should be anywhere allowed war.

WTF THIS SENTENCE MAKES NO SENSE

STOP TALKING, JOE

BUT MOSTLY: STOP GIVING HIM A PLATFORM TO TALK, WORLD.

When I read that, I automatically corrected it in my head to say "allowed anywhere near the war" and didn't realize what was wrong with it. Then I read it and thought he couldn't have possibly said that string of words in that order, so I watched the video. And he did. And now I'm going to go *headwall* silently...

lolol I can't stop laughing at him. WHY ARE YOU THERE REPORTING THEN?
apocalypsos 12th-Jan-2009 06:41 pm (UTC)
Seriously. My first thought was, "Wow, even he thinks he shouldn't be there."

I think he meant the LIBERAL media should be abolished from war reporting. It makes more sense if you consider GOP talking points.

i think you're smarter than he is, despite your political leanings.
