CNN senior international correspondent Nic Robertson responded to the Fox News allegations that reporters (including Reuters and CNN) in Libya were being used by Gadhafi’s forces as a “human shield to prevent allied fighter planes from coming in and attacking a certain position.” On CNN’s Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer this evening, Robertson called the claims “outrageous and absolutely hypocritical.” Robertson went on to say, “when you come to somewhere like Libya, you expect lies and deceit from a dictatorship here. You don’t expect it from the other journalists.” According to Robertson, FNC failed to note that they too had a staffer on the press bus.
