whose side are you on?

I believe that serious scrutiny should be given to what CBS was doing employing a "camerman" who appears to be something a little more than a free-lance reporter.

Mainstream Media keeps destroying its credibility every day with crap like this.


I recall from my days of reading management literature, what was called the GMP, or Greatest Management Principle: "Whatever behavior is rewarded, you're going to get more of."

What greater reward is there in journalism than the Pulitzer Prize?

And then there was the time the CIA packed a freelance cameraman's camera with explosives in a failed attempt to assassinate a rebel leader in Nicaragua.

Tony Avrigan, the cameraman was wounded. So much for integrity, heh? Avrigan was based in Costa Rica for many years covering various hot spots in Central America.

Collateral damage guess.

This is unfortunately unsurprising. I tracked back with a link to a piece on this I wrote for
