More On Campbell Brown

From Media Matters;

"During a discussion of Sen. Barack Obama's (D-IL) comment that "[w]e have now ... seen over 3,000 lives of the bravest young Americans wasted" in Iraq, co-host Campbell Brown said on the February 13 edition of NBC's Today: "It's tough for Democrats especially on this issue because -- especially Obama, who's not only opposed to the war, but has set a timeline for bringing troops home. It's difficult to say that you're against the war and at the same time not say that you're against the troops."
As Media Matters for America has repeatedly noted (here, here, here, and here) several media outlets have equated support for the Iraq war and opposition to withdrawal with supporting the military and the troops. This suggests that those who oppose the war or support withdrawal do not support the troops. Brown took it a step further, making explicit what others for the most part have merely implied -- that a position against the war and for the troops is inherently contradictory." Brown is a partisan Moron. She should listen to Pete Seeger's song below. To allow her to partake in the debate was a disgrace.
