    Because it's only the right that asks to embed. Then again, there are the Michael Yons and Bill Roggios and other former military, aren't there any on the left? Guess not. Oh then again, they are not 'credible' according to a Jillian or Grump? If I'm misinterpreting, feel free to correct. (Better check them out first though).

    Thing is, Fox is just about the only major media outlet that will carry any stories that make the military or administration look good, or Heaven forbid that things might be going well in Iraq.

    But yeah, I noticed only right-leaning correspondents want to imbed. It's called having "stones."
