Newspaper Guild President Echoes Jordan

World New Daily reports on a speech by the president of the Newspaper Guild, accusing the US military of targeting journalists Link.
Echoing a claim that led to CNN executive Eason Jordan's resignation, the president of the 35,000-member Newspaper Guild asserted U.S. troops deliberately are killing journalists in Iraq. [...]

According to a tape of her remarks, Foley said: "Journalists, by the way, are not just being targeted verbally or … ah, or … ah, politically. They are also being targeted for real, um … in places like Iraq. What outrages me as a representative of journalists is that there's not more outrage about the number, and the brutality, and the cavalier nature of the U.S. military toward the killing of journalists in Iraq."

Foley continued, "They target and kill journalists … uh, from other countries, particularly Arab countries like Al -, like Arab news services like al-Jazeera, for example. They actually target them and blow up their studios with impunity. ..."

[Mark Hyman, a commentator on Sinclair Broadcasting's "The Point] called on Foley to immediately present evidence to support her claims or resign.

"Unfortunately, the damage may have already been done," he said. "Her remarks could lead to further bloodshed, including against Americans."

Hyman concluded: "The question is whether Newspaper Guild members will hold Foley accountable or will they give her a free pass in endangering American lives with inflammatory remarks without any proof?"

Haven't journalists learned anything from the Newsweek fiasco? Making outlandish accusations without any evidence can cause death and destruction. It is the favorite activity of Democrat officials, and its spread to the press adds further proof to the claim that the MSM are a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party.
