A Pew Research Center poll documents the obvious: Americans are worried that media criticism of our military is weakening our defenses. (Hat tip: NewsMax.)

I have always wondered why -- in this war -- we allow AP and Reuters reporters to report from behind American lines one week and from behind the terrorists' positions the next and so on, without repercussions. Do you think this kind of thing would have been tolerated for even one minute during the long WWII years?

My conviction is that any reporter/cameraman who goes out to report from the enemy's perspective should be fired upon and/or captured just as though he/she were an enemy combatant.

Further, once a reporter has done a "stint" reporting from the terrorists' perspectives he/she should be slapped with a lifetime ban on ever reporting as an embedded ever again (with US forces). After all, they have been an accessory to the provenance of enemy propaganda.

After all, you are either with us or against us, right?
