Some Sloppy Language

Reported by Melanie - June 25, 2004 -

Greg Palkot reported from Baghdad live today at the top of the hour on Dayside w/Linda Vester. Here's some of what he said in his short report:

Palkot said the US initiated "yet another air strike on what's thought to be a terror nest" in Fallujah," and that there was "another back-down from the bad guys...bad boy cleric," Muqtada al-Sadr.

COMMENT: It's embarrassing for me as an American to hear reporters from US media speak this way, especially when I imagine those in other countries hearing this lack of professionalism. Palkot sounds like a thug.
