Well-known reporter Peter Arnett gets canned for speaking the truth - how damaging was what he said (and it was oh-so-obvious anyway). So much for free speech and journalistic integrity in these American days - if he is canned for speaking the truth, how many other reporters or journalists will refrain from telling what's really happening? In 1998 Arnett got reprimanded (while two others were fired) at CNN for accusing the US forces of using sarin gas on a Laotian village in 1970 to kill U.S. defectors (see bottom of article for details).
