Have a Nice Hot Cup Of Media Bias In the Morning
This “story” tries to “expose” such heinous crimes as Allison Barber (Asst. Def Sec) telling the soldiers to take deep breaths and relax.
She then had the gall to coordinate what order the military members would answer questions in (after Capt. Kennedy answers, he gives the mike to Capt. Smith).
Never once did Barber tell them anything about WHAT to answer, which is the headline premise of the article.
Just for good measure, they got a quote from Paul Rieckhoff, director of Operation Truth (An OIF/OEF Veterans advocacy group) saying that it wasn’t good enough because “If he wants the real opinions of the troops, he can't do it in a nationally televised teleconference, he needs to be talking to the boots on the ground and that's not a bunch of captains.”
Last time I checked, the group had only five officers (out of 10 people), and not all were captains (which is a first line supervisor role in the military). Would Paul be happy if he went to Iraq, again?
I love the smell of Media bias in the morning.
