In the most undemocratic rant, Samuel Wurzelbacher, aka "Joe the Plumber," who is currently working as a war correspondent in Israel (yes, that's right...a WAR CORRESPONDENT), had this to say about freedom of the press:
First of all, he says that journalists shouldn't be allowed near war, yet takes a position as a war correspondent. I'm confused. Second, how did this man become a correspondent? He cannot even string together a proper sentence in English. Third, what are his qualifications to hold such an important position? I think he first needs to re-visit a remedial U.S. History class to brush up on the Constitution -- particularly the First Amendment. Then he needs to re-visit a remedial English class. I have a seven-year old nephew who can tutor him. After that, he needs to brush up on his world history and current affairs. He has no right with such an important responsibility.
