Soldier Schools Matt Lauer of the "Today Show"

Ah, the arrogance of the Liberal Media. It never ceases to amaze (and amuse) me.

Yesterday morning, The Today Show made a surprise live broadcast from Iraq with their leading Liberal, Matt Lauer - who showed the comfortable and all-too-familiar ignorance of his profession while interviewing a soldier in-country. Although the topic of the interview was supposed to be an upcoming "teddy-bear drop" for the Iraqi children, Matt decided to get cute.

Mr. Lauer, in an interview with Captain Sherman Powell, seemed to anticipate very different answers from the young officer when he asked his leading questions.

"Now, don't get me wrong, I think you guys are probably telling me the truth about how well it's going to over here, but there might be a lot of people at home wondering how that could be possible, how could it possibly be going well here with the conditions you're facing and with the insurgent attacks that you're facing, so what would you say to those people who were doubtful that morale can be that high here?"

Captain Powell:
"Well, sir, I tell you if I got my news from the newspapers also I'd be pretty depressed as well."

"What don't you think is being correctly portrayed?"

Captain Powell:
"Sir, I know it's hard to get out and get on the ground and report the news, and I understand that, and I appreciate that fact, but for those of us who actually have a chance to go out and go on patrols and meet the Iraqi army and Iraqi police and go on patrols with them, we are very satisfied with the way things are going here, and we are confident that if we're allowed to finish the job we started, we'll be very proud of it, and our country will be proud of us for doing it."

"...I would just tell you, and for the people who are listening back at home, that we appreciate the support we've gotten from them so far, and soldiers will do anything when they know they have good leadership and they have the support from the people back at home, and as long as we continue to have confidence that we are supported and people have our back, there is nothing we cannot accomplish."

This was no self-deluding Tom Cruise going off on a megalomaniacal tangent about his imagined expertise on a subject he has no education or background in...this time it was ONE OF OUR FINEST - telling it like it is....and how it isn't.

Matt, would you like some FRIES to go with that CROW??
