If this from Drudge is right, I think this man needs to be barred from traveling with the 278th RCT. In fact I think any organization that hires him should be banned. This man is not a reporter nor even a journalist; he is an agent of provocation, a stirrer of dissent, the enemy of order, he is a propagandist.
He has crossed the line and should suffer the consequences. I do not care if his reasons was to score his first 'gotcha' moment that reporters seem to live for since the fall of President Nixon or with malice aforethought. To prime and prep someone to act as your stalking horse in order to ambush someone crosses the line from reporting on the news to actually manufacturing the news.
I think Edward R. Murrow as he broadcasted from London during the Blitz or Ernie Pyle as he slugged through yet another island with the Marines in the Pacific would be horrified that such a foul piece of excrement such as this person would dare to call himself a reporter. This man is no such thing, to borrow from Elizabethan times, he is a bear-baiter. He prods and pokes the subject until he gets a reaction he likes and then gleefully reports this as news.
