Leftist columnist wants journalists honored instead of troops – makes a very bad call

A Boston Globe columnist has a problem with honoring the military at sporting events.

Michael Cohen posted a comment on Twitter complaining about the  7th Inning Stretch being a time to honor our military during the All Star Game. Instead, he lamented, why not honor public defenders, social workers and journalists?

Cohen responded with a list of journalists who have been killed in the field.
