Reliably Clueless, Part II

The New York Times takes a story with one source, and spins it as “combat veteran goes psycho”.

Yet again.

You have to admire their tenacity, if not their brains.

Once again, let’s stick with the facts: the idea that combat veterans return as whack jobs is wrong.

In fact, an entire book was written about sloppy, biased, factually unsupported, and libelous media coverage of military veterans: Stolen Valor, by B. G. Burkett. My summary of it is here.

Maybe journalists should crawl out of their shells once in a while, and learn something true and useful, so they could start writing articles about the military that are based on facts, instead of emotions and narratives.

Yeah, that is sooooo going to happen.
