The MSNBC host calls radio talk show host Laura Ingraham “desperate” and “stupid” for criticizing the bravery of reporters in Iraq.

Crooks and Liars:

The segment started out focusing on Bush and his “attacking the messenger” strategy, but it shifted to Laura Ingraham after she went on “The Today Show” and O’Reilly, blasting the media.

Keith said: “A note about Laura Ingram’s comments. I’ve known her a long time. I’ll in fact give you the caveat that I’ve know her socially. But that hotel balcony crack was unforgivable. In was unforgivable to the memory of David Blum, it was unforgivable in considerable of Bob Woodruff and Doug Vought, unforgivable in light of what happened to Michael Kelly and what happened to Michael Weiskopft. It was unforgivable with Jill Carroll still a hostage in Iraq. And it was not only unforgivable of her; it was desperate and it was stupid.”

Laura seems to have forgotten that some eighty journalists have been killed in Iraq.
