Pin A Medal on Glenn Johnson…..quick, before he disappears

The reporter sitting on the floor putting actual, tough, reality-based questions to Romney is AP reporter Glen Johnson—and someone ought to pin a medal on him. Romney lied, Johnson called him on it. He didn’t run off and find a Democrat or a rival for the GOP nomination to “dispute Romney’s claim.” He reacted the way any reporter—any person—ought to react when they’re being lied to.

Glenn Johnson confronts Mitt and shows the world why we should be afraid

CNN’s Reliable Sources donated 4 minutes to the biggest journalism story to happen in the last year, at least. The day a courageous Glenn Johnson, of Associated Press, took on Dark Eyes, alone, and won, while stunned *journalists* stood by in shock that one of *them* would color outside the corporate media lines. There was the dutiful question about the moment, and a throw out to two pundits (one for- one against) then on to the next thing. They like to call their show a *critical* look at the media. Yet, they pay no homage to the Hero Reporter who brought Mitt Romney to his million dollar knees. 

Reliable Sources:  Lame.

We can appreciate you would like to move beyond it quickly, lest you give any other reporters some bright ideas about actually being a useful tool for democracy…but Glenn Johnson deserves at least 7 minutes.

Glenn Johnson, of Associated Press, ought to open his own shop and bring 50% of America with him (at least).  Of course, the establishment press would shut him out, because they have sold thier own souls, and rather like their cozy lifestyles. He couldn’t get a press pass to the men’s room.

Glenn Johnson represents what made this country great in it’s infancy. Courage. Truth. Justice. Remember those? You can google it if you’re unsure. I stand before Glenn Johnson and applaud him for giving America, and the world, the real picture on Mitt AC Romney.  AC= 13  by the way. He knows this.  When Glenn interrupted his speech, we all witnessed Mitt’s horror. Then, we witnessed a confrontational Mitt. HOW DARE YOU ! How dare you challenge me, you piece of nothing !!!  Then, we witnessed him stalk him down after the speech so he could get right up in Glenn’s face and show him a piece of his evil. Cept, the whole world saw the Sith. Were it not for the camera’s the Sea Dragon would have morhped before our eyes. But, it’s not time yet. That would have been foolish.

Hats off – big time – to Glenn Johnson. I will never forget. Never. Priceless.
