DANA PRIEST: Journalist or traitor?
We now return you to our regularly scheduled program, "America’s 100 Worst Journalists." This week focuses the Roscoe Daley Report spotlight on that great American patriot—and now Pulitzer Prize-winning journalista—Dana "Judas" Priest.
For service to her country in time of war, the RDR is nominating her for the Robert Hanssen Patriotism Award. She'll be up against some tough competition, though. James Risen of The New York Times, for example, exposed the National Security Agency warrantless wiretap program, which was found to be scandalously violating the privacy rights of al-Qaeda agents worldwide—for which he, too, won a Pulitzer. Meanwhile, Judas Priest, reporting for The Washington Post, exposed secret CIA terrorist prisons in Europe.
Yeah, we guess you could say there's a pattern here. And thank God somebody is looking out for the rights of those terrorists. After all, they're people too. Aren't they? (At least we think so.)
This is going to be a great week. Along the way we're going to discuss interesting characters such as Mary McCarthy, her uncle Charlie McCarthy, Joseph Wilson, Valerie Plame and William Goodfellow, to name a few. We'll also get to unveil a couple of new public service programs devised by the RDR, including Send a Terrorist to Summer Camp Week and National Take an Islamo-fascist to Work Day.
Golly, it's going to be fun.
