    In this segment, there seems to be an effort to make journalists seem heroic. I do not doubt that U.S. journalists (probably Jewish ones especially) can face danger covering the Mideast, particularly considering their pro-Israel bias. But how many Egyptians, confronting their American-backed military, have their own bodyguards?

    Flat out lie by Howard Kurtz, when he indignantly said "Joe Paterno did nothing, NOTHING, when he learned of the scandal."

    Paterno did report the allegation to the university, which what he was supposed to do under law and Penn State policy. You can think he should have done more, but it is a flat out lie to say he did nothing. Especially when Howard Kurtz had just said that ESPN sitting on much better evidence of another scandal was a "tough call."
