Clips From Last Night: Jessica Lynch on desecration video; Jodi Kantor defends her controversial book "The Obamas"

Former Prisoner Of War Jessica Lynch spoke exclusively to Piers Morgan last night about the Marine "desecration video", calling the actions of the soldiers "a disgrace" and "not anything we were ever taught to do as soldiers." "This is not the US military," she said. "Even though there are a handful that are doing wrong, we have to continue to support the ones that are doing good."

Also on the show last night, New York Times's reporter and author Jodi Kantor defended her portrayal of Michelle Obama in her new book "The Obamas":

"I never called her an angry black woman in the book," she said. Kantor describes her portrayal of the "ground breaking First Lady" as "flattering."

    I am a big fan of the show and watch most of the shows. I have to say though that I am disappointed in how Piers covered this story. To interview someone on a book and not even have read it is just sheer lazy and sloppy. Piers sounded more like a prosecutioner. It is clear that he had a mission and no open mind. I give interview a fail. We might have just watched the first lady conduct the interview.

    I just read the book and while Kantor doesn't pull her punches on the mistakes made during Obama first two years in office (and there were MANY) she is also correct in that her portrayal of the First Lady is actually quite flattering.

      GOD is watching over us on a daily basis & HE sees reyvething that onfolds All I can say is dat HIS word will forever maintain its sharpness as an arrow..HE has promised 2 recompense tribulation on those that trouble thee 1 Thes. 1:6 This shall be the reward of Zimmerman and whosoever that supports HIS action. U won't believe that blacks get pull over by police just because he/she is riding a fancy/flashy car? This madness has to stop! & with unity in CHRIST JESUS, we shall definitely overcome d prevailing situations, & above all, we shall stand up stall. I'm soooooo hurt cuz I'm a young lad, & know how important boys are to their mothers. I'm jus imagining what that woman is going through.

    I guess the most important thing is to steer clear away from spam moderators by putting comment that actually MATTER. Anyways, I’ll be using these blogs. Thank you so much!

    I was wondering u did not mention the most sought after terminology used in all the blog commenting articles and that being dofollow. So, are these a mix of dofollow and nofollow attribute blogs or one should overlook this factor while commenting?
