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:

What the fuck is he talking about? I understand the words he's using, but they don't seem to be strung together in any sort of comprehensive manner. Why do people keep putting a microphone in this man's face?

I think Keith Olbermann is behind it. He wants something to laugh about on his show.

For the same reason that the first person they interview after a tornado hits is that greasy-looking incoherent redneck with a dirty baseball cap, missing teeth, and little regard for the English language.

I don't know what the reason IS exactly, but I sense they're about the same.
