Chris Hayes: I'm 'Uncomfortable' Calling Fallen Military 'Heroes'
Hayes is worried that doing so is "rhetorically proximate" to justifications for more war. Oh, the rhetorical proximity! View the video after the jump.
These people never cease to amaze me. On a day for remembering the dead, he wants to say, "Hey everyone look at me, I am so above you." Apology Link
"On Sunday, in discussing the uses of the word 'hero' to describe those members of the armed forces who have given their lives, I don't think I lived up to the standards of rigor, respect and empathy for those affected by the issues we discuss that I've set for myself," Hayes says in a written statement. "I am deeply sorry for that."
Now that he has his name discussed for the last 24 hours, he can now have a change of heart. I guess he got what he wanted.
