The controversial McCain supporter gets news gig as news correspondent.
Wired PR News.com – Some time has passed since America last heard from the former constant media attraction, “Joe the Plumber,” however, the McCain supporter is now back in the spotlight with reports of a new gig after his stint on the campaign trail. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Samuel J. Wurzelbacher is set to become a war correspondent in Israel for pjtv.com, a conservative Internet site.
Wurzelbacher will reportedly spend 10 days reporting on the nation’s conflict, in which he will be granted what he is quoted as calling an opportunity to let Israeli “’Average Joes’ share their story.”
As noted by the AP, Wurzelbacher was publicly heard agreeing with someone who categorized a vote for Obama as voting for Israel’s death. The plumber received widespread media attention after being mentioned in a presidential debate for questioning President Elect Barack Obama’s tax proposal, and later followed Republican candidate John McCain on the campaign trail.
