Meet Joe The Reporter
Samuel Wurzelbacher, best known as Joe the Plumber, is reporting from Israel these days as part of his new gig for a conservative Web site, Pajamas TV (http://www.pjtv.com).
Wurzelbacher did a stand-up next to a large pile of rockets fired from Gaza into Israel and offered this interesting take on what journalists, such as himself, should do.
“I’ll be honest with you,” Wurzelbacher said in his video analysis. “I don’t think journalists should be anywhere [around] 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-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.”
Didn’t know he was that old. He continued: “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.”
