Michael Hastings was on Q&A last night on C-SPAN to discuss his book, The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America's War in Afghanistan, which expands upon his June 2010 Rolling Stone article that resulted in the firing of General Stanley McChrystal.

He described how he was granted access to the general and his closest staff, and noted that he was surprised to hear them make blunt remarks about political leaders, leading diplomats, and European allies.

Talk about news! Soldiers actually have off-the-record real-life opinions?

But what made this all interesting, and worth the watch, was hearing Hastings admit that journalists are all liberals, and that awards like the Polk Award and others are given BY liberals to liberals for their liberal reporting!

Nice that a liberal finally admits what most of us already knew.

Note to how he proudly announces that, "And we talk in grand terms about ourselves of afflicting the powerful and comforting the afflicted."

Objective indeed.
