'Stars Earn Stripes,' NBC Reality Show, Criticized By Veterans And Military Reporter
HuffPost Live's Ahmed Shihab-Eldin was joined by military veterans and HuffPost's Pulitzer Prize winning Senior Military Correspondent reporter David Wood Tuesday morning for a discussion on NBC's new reality show, "Stars Earn Stripes." The veterans, including US Army veteran Jennifer Hunt, Afghanistan veteran Matt Zeller, and retired US Army infantry soldier Joshua Flashman, criticized NBC for the show, which puts celebrities into quasi-basic training-like situation and features Todd Palin among its contestants.
"I hope it's canceled, and I hope it's replaced with a nightly review of the casualties lost that day," Zeller said, while Hunt focused her critique on the disservice the show pays to female service members.
