The story of the day, as shown in LifeNews is carried on a separate thread by wagglebee. As we have shown time and again, the media perpetuates lies using the old Hitlerean method of shouting them loud and long, so that the lie may be perceived as the truth. It actually works in some cases with those of feeble resistance and even some otherwise reasonable FReepers. And that is why the media cannot let go, once they start. They are locked in to their own propaganda train and it won't stop. Neither will those hooked to the train stop...
Orlando, FL (LifeNews.com) -- Terri Schiavo died from a painful starvation and dehydration euthanasia death at the hands of her former husband over three years ago. Yet, Terri's family is still having problems getting the mainstream media to report the story of her life and death accurately.
In the most recent case, the Orlando Sentinel newspaper is under fire for a news article that wrongly referenced Terri Schiavo as "brain dead."
On Saturday, May 24, 2008, Aaron Deslatte, a reporter from the newspaper, published the story with the erroneous claim.
Terri's brother Bobby Schindler called and left repeated messages for Deslatte to contact him about the language.
On Wednesday, Orlando Sentinel representatives told Schindler to speak with Dana Eagles.
'Bobby kindly informed Mr. Eagles that using the phrase 'brain dead' to depict Terri's condition was patently false, explaining that the term 'brain death' is an authentic medical diagnosis and not an accurate term to describe a person in Terri's condition," the family told LifeNews.com in a statement.................

From the Baptist Press...
We were in San Antonio initially because the Hefleys asked my husband and me to help distribute copies of Jim's newest volume of "The Truth in Crisis" on the controversy in the SBC. His book had been banned from the Baptist Bookstore and he wanted people at the SBC annual meeting to have access to it. I was a part-time student and full-time employee at Hannibal-LaGrange College in Missouri, where my husband John, an Army reservist, was studying for the ministry after 12 years of active duty.
As a fledging journalist enrolled in Jim's writing for publication class, I also would be able to see up-close how one goes about covering about something as foreign as the annual meeting of the SBC.
Two years later, after San Antonio and under Jim's careful tutelage, I left my first-ever major news story -– and a film canister -– on the editor's desk of the Hannibal Courier-Post in Missouri. Missouri Citizens for Life, a group with a large number of Southern Baptists, had a huge presence at a St. Louis rally, and I went along as a volunteer to cover the event. I think it was Marti who tracked me down later that day and told me the afternoon edition of the paper had run my story and photo with a large headline on the front page above the fold. My career as a journalist was launched. More importantly, years later, as I sat in front of the hospice covering the starvation and hydration death of Terri Schiavo, it seems strange irony – no, providential – that I would have been uniquely positioned to cover that story for more than two years...............

8mm, you're not often wrong but this is an exception, I see ZERO evidence that some of these FRiberal deathbots are "otherwise reasonable."
