Worthy of Jail

I hope CNN's on board with their paid commentator's desires to jail journalists for reporting on the illlegal actions of their government.

...let me add that this is really the kind of thing our respectable elite journalists need to figure out a way to deal with. Bennett is a longtime member of the respectable commentariat. He isn't even "just" a right wing ranter with a talk show, he's a fixture in the world of respectable journalism. And, he's calling on the jailing of journalists for doing their jobs. I'm sure some shrill blogger is doing something inappropriate today, but maybe, just maybe, things like this should inspire some genuine reflection on how our political discourse got to this state and who is responsible.
