Plumber Watch ’09

In his unending quest for unbiased reporting, our man in the Holy Land seeks answers to the questions Americans need to know. Here is a transcript of Joe interviewing an Israeli reporter.

JOE: The story here is people are being killed and the media’s slanting it and trying to make it Hamas is, uh, as far as, that Israel’s being bad. Do you believe Israel is bad?

REPORTER: Do I believe it?

JOE: Yeah, do you?!

REPORTER: I’m Israeli, so…

JOE: So answer the question!

REPORTER: No, I don’t think Israel is bad.

JOE: Do you think Israel has every right to protect itself?

REPORTER: Yeah.

[pause]

JOE: You do?!

REPORTER: Yeah.

JOE: Have you said that on air?

REPORTER: I’m just a reporter.

[sarcasm]I am so glad that we have someone that will go to anything length to get answers. That is some first rate reporting. Clips of this will be analyzed by future journalism students in order to disseminate the essence of Joe’s reporting genius. Oh they will try, but they will fail. There will only ever be one Joe the Plumber their instructor will say. You can only hope to be a faint shadow of He Who Saved Journalism.[/sarcasm]
