NBC reporter Ashleigh Banfield has been officially scolded by network
President Neal Shapiro for remarks she made ripping her colleagues in TV
news for allegedly sugarcoating Iraq war coverage with patriotism and not
showing the realities of the conflict.

In a speech at Kansas State University Thursday, Banfield lashed out at
"cable news operators who wrap themselves in the American flag and go after
a certain target demographic."

Part of Banfield's offense involved criticizing her own network, reportedly
saying NBC closed its bureau in Kabul, Afghanistan, a statement that the
network said was untrue.

Banfield also suggested some cable TV networks skewed their coverage to
please advertisers.

Shapiro reportedly "bawled out" the journalist for her comments.
