“I dont quite understand why it was such a big deal to you, because there were several sources, all of which gave the same information.”
It didn’t start out to be a big deal, just an observation and a question about sources. Re-read my posts. Throwing a pejorative headline up with no citation, or in this case an incorrect citation, with no excerpt gives the appearance of being manufactured. When someone finally provided the blog source on WashingtonPost.com, which you later provided, I thanked them. Case closed. But it seems to be still going. So, I guess, “big deal” is in the eyes of the beholder.
I think part of the problem was that several hours or even days have passed between posts. Forget it.
