…shows how much the media and public in general lack critical thinking. There needs to be a thorough housecleaning regarding leakers. It’s one thing to be a whistleblower; it’s something entirely different to abuse your position of confidence to score points on the gossip circuit. Have the guts to come forward, or shut your yap. As for the media: your credibility is already in the toilet, and some of us didn’t need the press release below to know that most of what you have to say these days must be taken with a grain silo of salt.
Knowing how this ugly business works, I’m hoping this was just a reminder born of frustration at all the leaks to this point, rather than a pre-emption of a shoe likely to drop in the near future. Every day it seems there’s some new bizarre angle that will be “investigated.” It’s like one side is throwing around as much poo as they can, hoping something will stick. Our government is paralyzed by all these circuses… and that’s by deliberate calculation.
Final unrelated thought: the copycatting of yesterday’s shooting has begun.
