Joe the Plumber (major McCain supporter and well known Republican) says "I think Media should be Abolished" from Reporting on War

Published Jan 11 2009 on
Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, aka "Joe the Plumber," is currently in Israel covering the war for the conservative site When asked what he has learned from his new experiences as a journalist, Wurzelbacher said that he believes the media shouldn't be allowed to do "reporting" on wars:
I'll be honest with you. I don't think journalists should be anywhere allowed war. I mean, you guys report where our troops are at. You report what's happening day to day. You make a big deal out of it. I think it's asinine. You know, I liked back in World War I and World War II when you'd go to the theater and you'd see your troops on, you know, the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy for'em. Now everyone's got an opinion and wants to downer-and down soldiers. You know, American soldiers or Israeli soldiers.
I think media should be abolished from, uh, you know, reporting. You know, war is hell. And if you're gonna sit there and say, "Well look at this atrocity," well you don't know the whole story behind it half the time, so I think the media should have no business in it.
Watch it:
