Not very smart there, Tom
"The criticism...goes well beyond any factual information."This is the equivalent of putting a "kick me" sign on your own back. Boy, he is really asking for it. Indeed, BoycottCBS.com is already demanding an apology:
"What I think is highly inappropriate is what is going on across the internet, a kind of political jihad...and that is quite outrageous," said Brokaw.
Paranzino replied: "Tom Brokaw reads the news, but does he understand it? How could a man who reports on child-killings in Beslan, or beheadings in Iraq, be so insensitive to the reality of jihad?
"Jihad is not Americans demanding reforms from an arrogant and biased media. Jihad is Islamists mowing down children for sport, blowing up families at Tel Aviv cafes, and in case he forgot, terrorists sending jet airliners into the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
"We will not be cowed into silence by Mr. Brokaw's intemperate remarks. Is it any wonder the networks have been hemorrhaging viewers for years? They just don't get it."
