Happy big dig Sunday to our friends in the Mid-Atlantic. Enjoy this clip from Saturday Night Live — a send-up of “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” and her guests, Karl Rove, Ollie North, Glenn Beck and “Fox News correspondent, an attractive blonde lady.”

The real Van Susteren is still in Rome where she interviewed the real Defense Secretary Robert Gates but presumably talked about some of the same issues that came up in the SNL parody. We’re told she watched the sketch online.

Injured Cameraman Receives Navy’s Second Highest Honor

jackson_1-27.bmpIn early August 2008, Ollie North reported for FNC about his cameraman, Chris Jackson, who was injured in an IED explosion in Afghanistan. Although his leg was injured, he went back into the flames and rescued a wounded Marine.

Today the Multi-National Corps in Iraq released news that Jackson had been honored with a Department of the Navy Distinguished Public Service Award, the second highest award given to civilians by the Navy, for his actions.

In the release, Sgt. Courtney Rauch, who was the Marine he saved, said, “Without Chris’ quick thinking and heroic act, I would have lost my life that day. Chris forgot about being a reporter that day and became one of our brothers and acted as one of us. Chris went above and beyond his duty.”

Jackson now works for CNN. He was presented the award in Iraq, on his way to India.

FNC Cameraman Injured in Afghanistan

jackson_8-4.JPGFNC’s Ollie North reported this morning on Fox & Friends about an IED explosion that injured his cameraman and two Marines yesterday while the FNC crew is in the Helmand Provence of Afghanistan.

The cameraman, Chris Jackson, injured his leg in the attack, but, “walked back into the flames [and] rescued one of the wounded Marines.”

“He’s a hero,” said North.

The two Marines were more critically injured and are recovering.

“It was a remarkable scene, one that I’ve seen altogether far too many times,” said North.
