Media safety pledge

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by mintymcginty, Mar 2, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. IMHO they should be amongst the first targets!
     
  2. I've not signed any pledge....
     
  3. Collateral damage ring any bells?
     
  4. Shame they'll never reciprocate :x
     
  5. Any chance of the press promising not to target squaddies?
     
  6. You pays your money, you takes your chances as far as I'm concerned.
     
  7. I would have assumed that we did not deliberately target journos anyway. (As much as we'd sometimes like to).
     
  8. errrm...

    I congratulate the MoD on the principle behind this initiative. I havent yet looked at the detail.

    Some of you will know a very good guy called Smudger who is ex-RA and has done some important work relating to journo safety.

    The trouble with the "poetic justice" argument is that the ones who stitch us up are not (always) the same ones who might be at risk. Unfortunately.
