Welp, looks like Greta van Susteren’s feet are firmly in the “Blame Michelle Fields” camp:
Here’s what she wrote on her Gretawire blog (via Mediaite):
The media might want to ask itself if it is putting too much of a spotlight on this issue, she writes. It has crossed my mind that viewers/voters across the nation are thinking that we in the mediaput more of a spotlight on some non lethal shoving of one our own (a fellow journalist) than on gang shootings, domestic violence or other.[Emphasis in the original]
Sometimes tempers flare, and regrettable things happen, Van Susteran argues,but we should not make this an international crisis and it is not a First Amendment crisis. It is a flap we should all get over.
This is not to say, assuming it happened, that shoving a journalist (or anyone) is good it is not, she concludes.
