Self-Aggrandizement taken to new heights

So this British war correspondent writes a gonzo piece about supposedly getting killed in Afghanistan:
In the week that Sir David Richards, the new head of the British Army, called for more troops to be sent to Afghanistan, foreign correspondent Nick Meo came so close to death in a Taliban bomb ambush that the US forces had him written off as a fatality.

Sounds cool, right?

Go read BlackFive's deconstruction of this twit's misadventures and you'll understand why there's such a distrust of the media among many soldiers.
