Woodruff gets hurt, news agencies are shocked to learn that people get hurt in war.

And now the troops are upset about all the attention being given this guy. With good reason, they are in mortal danger almost daily and have had friends killed or injured. This war is almost three years old, and the press still overreacts that it's dangerous?

United Press International - Security & Terrorism - Some US troops question Woodruff coverage

Maybe the reporters should go hang out with their "insurgent" friends while the US troops are attacking. See what violence really looks like.

Or maybe we should have OSHA investigate the Army to make sure that they are doing everything possible to make it safe for reporters in the war zones.

Sorry stuff like this makes me a little bit angry sometimes. I can't stand arrogance, especially arrogance that I don't think is earned, like CNN or ABC reporters.
