Journalist comes home safe, but some debate stirs - Yahoo! News
First, glad the guys safe.
Now, for the NYT NOT to report on this (not too mention 40 other news outlets!!!) when they jump at the chance to report on ANYTHING that involves the military without regards to OPSEC for the sake of a story is frigging BS!!! Fine, they didn't report on him because they didn't want his value to seem that high. OK, good. Fair enough. THEN DO THAT WITH ALL OF YOUR REPORTING! SHOW SOME FRIGGING RESTRAINT!!! Just goes to show just how much I can't stand the press! This story just makes me sick!
New York Times executive editor Bill Keller told CNN the decision to ask other news outlets not to report the story was an "agonizing position that we revisited over and over again."
Are you serious? You convince 40 other news outlets not to report on ONE person yet you mention Secret info at the drop of a hat that could result in harming hundreds!
For the record, I'd just prefer that the press had A LOT more restraint in all situations. Just because something is news-worthy doesn't mean that people have the need/right to hear it!
