Watch Rep. Patrick Kennedy lambaste the media

12

March

Wednesday during a speech on the U.S. House floor, Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-Mass., took time from arguing for a resolution calling for troops to be withdrawn from Afghanistan by year's end to lambaste the media. Kennedy bellowed angrily about what he called a "despicable" lack of coverage of the men and women who have been killed in the war.

"If anyone wants to know where cynicism is, cynicism is that there are one, two people in this press gallery," Kennedy shouted, pointing up to the press viewing area directly above the Speaker's chair.
