Peter Arnett,

broadcast journalist, was dismissed by NBC in March after he criticized the U.S.-led operation in Iraq in an interview on Iraqi state TV. “The first war plan has failed because of Iraqi resistance,” he said. NBC, which had hired Arnett as a freelance journalist, initially supported Arnett but changed course after only hours of further deliberation. Arnett earned praise for his fearless—and ubiquitous—coverage of the 1991 Persian Gulf War for CNN.
