So much for standing by your reporters

MSNBC has fired Pulitzer Prize winning reporter, Peter Arnett, for giving an interview with Iraqi state TV after initially issuing a statement supporting him. Guess the pressure from corporate advertisers was just too much,eh? This isn't exactly surprising after MSNBC cancelled Phil Donahue, despite his having that networks highest rated program. Arnett's unemployment didn't last as the British press were quick to scoop him up. Now he's reporting for the Daily Mirror and you can read his first report right here. I'm looking forward to reading his uncensored reports to come.

And those folks who are as sick of the endless parade of current and retired military folks in the Amerikan news I offer the following as alternate sources of information:

Information Clearing House



The Independent

Guardian Unlimited
