The Guardian doesn't even recognize its own reporter!

Does it get any funnier than this?

Claire Cozens writing in The Guardian about the BBC pulling some of its staff out of Iraq used this quote:

"This explains some of the poor coverage coming out of Iraq. Neither the BBC nor ITV has anyone in Falluja, but ITV has at least broadcast an interview with [aid worker] Jo Wilding from the city. The BBC should be giving the other side of the story," he said.

Notice the bracketed "aid worker"? This despite the fact that Ms Wilding is a well known anti-war activist and "journalist" who has written many articles for the Guardian. See my earlier post with links to some of her Guardian "reports".

Maybe Claire and Ms Wilding should "do lunch" sometime or get their nails done together. I'm sure Ms Wilding could teach Claire a thing or two about "journalism".

Anybody see or hear the ITV broadcast of the interview with Ms Wilding? If so, how did they identify her?
