Jeremy Scahill calls out "Terrorism Expert Industrial Complex" on CNN

Jeremy Scahill of Democracy Now! fame hammered on CNN, MSNBC, and those drooling idiots over at FOX

Journalist and documentarian Jeremy Scahill confronted CNN International host Hala Gorani on Tuesday with his harsh criticism of both some world leaders showing solidarity toward France and her network’s handling of the recent terrorist attacks in the country.

“Hypocrisy was on full display on Sunday, with all of these world leaders; many of them are enemies of the press, themselves,” Scahill said. “I also think that CNN and MSNBC and Fox are engaging in the terrorism expert industrial complex. You have people on as paid analysts that are largely frauds who have made a lot of money off of portraying themselves as terror experts, and have no actual on-the-ground experience.”

I am posting this because I am thrilled he was able to come out and say this.
All these pundits and 'terrorism experts" are paid liars and - most probably - nitwits (see Kieth Ablow, former actual MD) yet here they are drawing 6 figure salaries, functioning more or less as manure spreaders.

Yet these goobers also "inform" a significant portion of this country, the addled "can't find a country if we aren't bombing it, still waiting to get bigfoot, don't touch my gun" crowd.

Recall, if you will, the Prime Minister of England hammering the FOX news 'terrorism industrial complex guest" for saying really really stupid shit:

Security analyst Steven Emerson said Sunday that “non-Muslims just simply don’t go in” to the city, during a discussion of multiculturalism in Britain after last week’s Paris attacks.

“When I heard this, I choked on my porridge and I thought it must be April Fool’s Day. This guy is clearly a complete idiot,” Cameron told ITV News.
