Living with snipers

I'd like to know the name of the reporter from The Economist who came to Iraq without equipment, without a sleeping bag, without a pad of paper and pencil to take notes, ingratiated himself to some Marines for two days and then went home to write lies about them, according to the marine in this video.

It's a good video; it brings a human element generally lost in the news.

Thanks for the video link, Nancy. Amazing. Call me naive, but its so hard to believe a "journalist" being so vile that in order to promote his own political agenda and in spite of being an eyewitness and hearing from the soldiers in battle, would outright lie.

Well call me cynical, but such vile behavior on the part of the Economist reporter is all too easy to believe.

I guess it should be easy to believe...with that though, I would like to hear if the Economist makes any sort of statement either supporting their putz or offering an apology...

The Economist isn't a leftist publication, though--for example, they supported Bush in 2000. I'd like to hear more about this as well.
