Fox: "Embedded" With the Military (in the United States!)

Reported by Melanie - September 7, 2005

Early this afternoon (September 7, 2005), during a report from the Gulf Coast by Fox's Rick Leventhal, a chyron appeared at the bottom of the screen that read, "Leventhal Embedded with Gen. in Charge of Relief."

Comment: It looks like we've reached a new level of insanity folks. A US news organization "embeds" with the US military to cover a story on US soil! I presume the reason Leventhal felt he needed to embed was for protection against the "enemy" (showcasing US military might is a potential plus too), the enemy being we citizens of the United States! Is this a combat operation or a relief operation?
