Is this supposed to be constructive crticism? If so, this is not the way to do it. How 'bout you correct the record and recomend the change, rather than throwing the whole thing into the circular file. Most of us have a real job and could be we need help with all the exact facts. Supply the evidence with the facts to back it up in order to make the article factually accurate.
You will have to admit this is a pretty small discrepancy. His heart and general portrayal of the facts is accurate. When we have an outstanding article such as this, we need to pull together and, if need be, fine tune it to surpass the obvious scrutiny the MSM will reqest of the blogosphere.
This is not the time to be negative of each other. We are combatting major media! Our resources are each other. We do not have billions of dollars to promote our point of view or the actual facts. The best we can hope for is to get our point of view spread as far as possible without the help of the MSM. An almost impossible task
If you have something constructive to add or to improve the article, by all means voice your opinion. By degrading the article because the author is not familiar with all the branches and nuances of the military structure during the 60's and early 70's is not helping. Correct him or her and help forward the cause we all believe in.
I am not trying to start anything, just making an observation to further our cause. Please do not take offense. We need to help each other.
Did that in my first sentence...
Supply the evidence with the facts to back it up in order to make the article factually accurate.
I would contend that those who desire to present a cogent case for their opinion bear the burden, not the reader. I use and recommend Google and the FR search feature. The whole recent CBS forged documents dust-up between the MSM and the bloggers has servers stock full with this data.
His heart and general portrayal of the facts is accurate
Agreed and that is why I point out that when the blogosphere intends to call the MSM to the bar of fairness and accuracy, the blogger must be doubly careful to maintain that same standard. I believe you and I are saying the same thing, generally. I am just trying to place the responsibility on those who want to share with us via their blog.
It is also not my desire to start anything or to have the last word. It is my contention that FReepers should not just blindly post from blogs, no matter how much we agree with the posted opinion. Facts matter and a little discretion will help us to keep the MSM humble in their quest to minimize what we both know to be the great effect the Internet is having on the election cycle.
A pleasant Sunday evening to you. Thanks for the opportunity to interact.
