This week's Mainstream Media Scream features HBO talk show host Bill Maher calling soldiers murderers.

Brushing off war correspondent Sebastian Junger's claim that "soldiers aren't psychopaths," Maher countered Friday night: "Well, some of them are psychopaths. I mean, let's be honest. Some people join the Army because it's the one place where you can kill people for free. Where you're not charged with murder. I'm not saying that's the main component of it, but I mean that is some attraction."

Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our pick: "To think that even 'some' join the military because they are 'psychopaths' who delight in getting away with murder shows the level of contempt Maher has for those the rest of America, outside of the Hollywood Left, see as heroes."
