Across America, Deadly Echoes of MSM Moonbattery
Taking inspiration from the disgraceful New York Times piece that used anecdotal reporting to create the impression that our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan come home as homicidal maniacs, Iowahawk questions the stability of media vets:
A Denver newspaper columnist is arrested for stalking a story subject. In Cincinnati, a television reporter is arrested on charges of child molestation. A North Carolina newspaper reporter is arrested for harassing a local woman. A drunken Chicago Sun-Times columnist and editorial board member is arrested for wife beating. A Baltimore newspaper editor is arrested for threatening neighbors with a shotgun. In Florida, one TV reporter is arrested for DUI, while another is charged with carrying a gun into a high school. A Philadelphia news anchorwoman goes on a violent drunken rampage, assaulting a police officer. In England, a newspaper columnist is arrested for killing her elderly aunt.
The examples go on and on. Considering that Iraq and Afghanistan vets are actually much less likely to commit murder than the general population, maybe we should send reporters overseas as combatants to get them straightened out.

Near Pittsburgh, the girlfriend of one of the Steelers with a child fired 2 shots into the wall of her house and held police at bay for 12 hours until she surrendered. Whats it with all these psycho women lately? PMS?

Iowahawk's "report" was one of the funniest things I've read in a while. Kudos!
Incidentally, Iowahawk forgot to include the troubling case of Mike Wallace, arrested for disorderly conduct after being caught double-parking:

Hilarious! And you'll never hear a peep about this compilation in the "mainstream" media.
Pam brought up the Mike Wallace incident -- makes me wonder if the Dan Rather "What's the frequency, Kenneth?" incident (Dan was physically accosted, allegedly, by someone who first asked him that question -- supposedly), wasn't also made up by Herr Blather, much like the "Burkett-gate" T.A.N.G. documents?
Fabrication, like hemoglobin, seems to be in the blood of the Ultra-hard Left "mainstream" media in this country . . .

Then there is the case years ago of the ancorwoman who after announcing "In keeping with (The news program's) policy of shocking news stories", pulled out a revolver and blew her brains out ON CAMERA.
I searched "anchorwoman on camera suicide" but cmae up with nothing.

The anchorwoman's name was Chris Chubbuck.
