Thanks for the Bump.

They don’t need to run influence operations on bloggers - the bloggers have a position, and argue it every day, and this influences public debate. As if Wretchard and Bill Roggio and Michael Yon (1) needed prompting to support the war effort and (2) could be manipulated in any event.

Your breaking of this story is what led me to FR.

I’ve been hooked ever since. Thank you... I think.

Additionally, reputable blogs not only fact-check the lazy or intentional misreporting of the drive-by’s but they fact check each other.

A reputable blog will correct and acknowlege any inaccuracies and provide all substantiating links.

FR bump!

Hear, Hear!

The perspective of Associated Press journalism is entirely predictable - journalism consistently promotes itself by criticizing and second guessing everyone who takes responsibility to get things done. That is why it so consistently undermines military, police, and business.

That leftist bias is why FR and conservative blogs are motivated to add perspective to the resulting information/disinformation stream. We are just not the place to look for someone to run a disinformation campaign; we aren't even able to do that. We are in fact a challenge to any disinformation program.
