Jonathan of ITN gets angry when asked about bombing

Jonathan of ITN gets angry when asked about bombing Syria. He thinks it is OK for him to ask other people questions but not OK for others to ask him. Finally, he has to admit Jan did nothing wrong by asking him about the bombing.

What a strange reaction.

Don't you just love

'special' people. Whether they be 'journalists', politicians or other members of the elite establishment, I think things are getting to the point where the arrogant attitudes of a lot of people are going to bite them in their collective butts. Watching Patraeus being confronted by students the other day was just a hint of things to come.

Please keep up the good work Mr. Helfeld.

You can't ask us, we're journalists, we're "special"

I guess in the UK "journalists" have a special class designation.
A funny response to his rude retort would go like this.

Can I ask you a question?
You can't ask us a question, we're journalists.
Oh, I'm sorry I did not know that, had I known I would not have asked you because I would have known you would be too fing stupid to know the answer. LOL
