The Pajama Brigade is going to bring down Giuliana Sgrena like they brought down Dan Rather

I found this post via Dcat about a Dutch journalist's encounter with Giuliana Sgrena enroute to Iraq. And he doesn't have many nice things to say about her:

'Be careful not to get kidnapped,' I told the female Italian journalist sitting next to me in the small plane that was headed for Baghdad. 'Oh no,' she said. 'That won't happen. We are siding with the oppressed Iraqi people. No Iraqi would kidnap us.'

It doesn't sound very nice to be critical of a fellow reporter. But Sgrena's attitude is a disgrace for journalism. Or didn't she tell me back in the plane that 'common journalists such as yourself' simply do not support the Iraqi people? 'The Americans are the biggest enemies of mankind,' the three women behind me had told me, for Sgrena travelled to Iraq with two Italian colleagues who hated the Americans as well.'

If you liked that, check out the whole post.

And for more about her car and her lies.

It just gets better and better.

Update: Chrenkoff has a translation of the whole (scathing) article by the Dutch journalist.
