MEND on CNN

CNN has been running a piece by its man in Africa, Jeff Koinange, where he visits the MEND rebels in the Niger Delta. After the piece had run, Sebastian Junger, who wrote the Vanity Fair piece, appeared on Anderson Cooper 360 to talk about his experiences. I've just come off a night shift and haven't got the energy to comment on the story. There were one or two red flags, so I actually called CNN in Atlanta to put them straight. Still, read and watch.

Personally, I think they weren’t scary; they came off as a joke – not very articulate, gun wavering idiots. CNN was just being CNN sensationalizing the news as usual; did the reporter seem that frightened really? Seriously though, grown ass men all ninja(ed) up dancing in a circle is not that scary.
