The People Responsible For the Credits Have Been Sacked

I’m not entirely sure how I really feel about the firing of Peter Arnett, but I tend to think that if NBC and National Geographic don’t want their reporters associating with Iraqi TV, that’s fine by me. That said, Arnett has a history of stirring up trouble in his war coverage, and perhaps this was for the best. I would like to think, though, that the networks that fired him did it because the way he acted was wrong, not because they were trying to suppress the truth, as the American media so often do. (In case you hadn’t noticed, that’s why I read a lot of the BBC.)
