Not very smart there, Tom

You know, when there are thousands, perhaps millions for factcheckers out there going over everything you report, that last thing you want to do is say things like this:
"The criticism...goes well beyond any factual information."

"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.
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:

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."

Oh, I think they 'get it' all right. They're just on the other side.
