The New York Times revealed that 121 veterans are just the tip of the iceberg, and that there is probably, well, certainly, well, maybe, well, there could be, a huge swirling mass of psychotic veterans out there, possibly. Iowahawk, showing a truly impressive learning curve, has mastered those same journalistic and statistical techniques to reveal where the source of the real dangers facing ordinary Americans:
Bylines of Brutality
As Casualties Mount, Some Question The Emotional Stability of Media Vets
An Iowahawk Special Investigative Report
With Statistical Guidance from the New York Times
A Denver newspaper columnist is arrested for stalking a story subject. In Cincinnati, a television reporter is arrested on charges of child molestation. A North Carolina newspaper reporter is arrested for harassing a local woman. A drunken Chicago Sun-Times columnist and editorial board member is arrested for wife beating. A Baltimore newspaper editor is arrested for threatening neighbors with a shotgun. In Florida, one TV reporter is arrested for DUI, while another is charged with carrying a gun into a high school. A Philadelphia news anchorwoman goes on a violent drunken rampage, assaulting a police officer. In England, a newspaper columnist is arrested for killing her elderly aunt.
Unrelated incidents, or mounting evidence of that America’s newsrooms have become a breeding ground for murderous, drunk, gun-wielding child molesters? Answers are elusive, but the ever-increasing toll of violent crimes committed by journalists has led some experts to warn that without programs for intensive mental health care, the nation faces a potential bloodbath at the hands of psychopathic media vets.
“These people could snap at any minute,” says James Treacher of the Treacher Institute for Journalist Studies. “We need to get them the help and medication they need before it’s too late.”

I have to admit to being pretty impressed, because I was just telling DQ that discourse in this country has gotten so wacky that it makes satire practically impossible. Iowahawk shows that there’s still room for this fine art.
Incidentally, Iowahawk forgot to include in his hall of shame Bernie Ward, the former priest and San Francisco radio personality, who was indicted for trafficking in child porn.
