The Peter Arnett fiasco seems to this observer to reflect poorly on NBC News, which apparently sees the role of a news network as that of printing the "official" story and to hell with the truth.  

I admit that I would feel better had Arnett landed with some paper other than the tabloid London Mirror.  It will be interesting to follow this story.  

I see that Geraldo Rivera denies having been told to leave Iraq.  Unfortunately, he lost any sign of credibility long years ago.  

Peter Arnett will stay in my memory for the magnificent job he performed in Vietnam all those decades ago.
