I am sure you can find a blog to say whatever you want on any issue.


Is the Washington Times a source of truth?

Ah, yes. The blacklisted "conservative" sources.

Please slap my wrist if I cite Fox News

I have far more respect for Fox News than I do for the Washington Times. Don't question my source on this story when your own is hardly above reproach.

Blogs are opinions. It is like expert testimony in lawsuits. You can buy the opinion you want.

The Washington Times reported on a factual matter, which apparently is not being disputed.

Then what in the blog are you disputing, the opinion of the blogger? Does that change the facts presented?

Just because a blog says something doesn't mean it is automatically untrue. This little girl's dad has pulled stunts like this before, and this fact has been backed up by newspaper accounts written at that time. See atrios.blogspot.com for more information on this.

And NBC, I still think it would have been a decent thing for Laura Bush to express her sympathy for that mother. If the woman refused this gesture, at least Laura would have looked like a compassionate, caring human being...an opportunity to show this caring to others.

Just out of curiousity, does this mean if I witness something and later write about it in my blog, its just my opinion? But if a journalist witnesses the exact same thing, its factual?

The blog sites news reports of other rallies the dad has peacefully attended (and been attacked).

But it also suggests that this was staged by the family.

Since you posted the blog to discredit the dad, it should be based on more than the conspiracy theories of a blogger.

Read the linked blog and you can readily tell the difference between quoted material and blogger opinion.

Given the ability to misstate, exaggerate or fabricate, anecdotal tales are, unfortunately, of minimal use.

And given CBS’s behavior of late, journalist's reports are questionable as well.

Isn't anyone dissing this mom going to at least allow that she's probably very distraught over her son's death? I sincerely doubt that, when her son died, she thought, "Oh, goody, now I can make a kick-ass political statement."

I don't think that protesters who show up at opposing campaign stops get attacked too often, but somehow this guy has three times in three different election cycles. Also, amazingly, he got press coverage all three times. I guess you think that's a coincidence, or that Democrats are really violent. Is there an explanation that I'm missing?

I'd also like to mention that this guy has proved what a class act he is with the "Vince Foster" signs and by the fact that he took his three year old daughter to a protest.

I for one wouldn't presume to make any judgments about this woman until I was in her shoes.

Look at the man who was so grief stricken that he set the Marine van on fire and burned himself..

I think it's kinda obvious that more people who join the military in the first place are more apt to side with Bush and his type than those who do not join the military. They would side with him whether they were in the military or not.
