GOP media toady's panties in wad
NBC News president Neal Shapiro "bawled out" correspondent Ashleigh Banfield for what he perceived as criticisms over the war coverage of the networks.

'In a speech at KSU, Banfield said the networks had portrayed the Iraqi war as "glorious and wonderful" because they had failed to show the bloody horrors of the battles. Reporters who have returned from Iraq have defended the networks' lack of blood-and-guts video, saying it was impossible to film much of it because of logistical reasons.'
Gee, that's funny: Al-Jazeera and the other Muslim networks didn't seem to have any trouble.
