Coleen Rowley has never struck me as a particularly bright person, for obvious reasons, but I was still shocked to read her nonsense at OpEdNews.
She's attacking Bill Keller. I'm not a fan of Bill Keller's.
Just last week, I wrote "Bill Keller the finger pointer." But I don't provide a laundry list of his sins and pretend I've made a case that he was unfair to little Julie Assange.
Bill Keller's a reporter. He wrote with an eye for detail in the excerpt the New York Times ran. It was lively. I had no problem with it. But I'm not worshiping Julian Assange.
Coleen Rowley is. Which is really pathetic.
But very telling.
So sorry for Coleen but if someone shows up around the press in "dirty socks," the press will most likely note that fact. That is how the press works.
That this surprises her goes to how grossly she was failed by the country's education system.
But there's no reason to punish the rest of us for that.
Bill Keller was wrong on Iraq. I will hold him accountable when addressing the Iraq War.
I will not equate Little Julie Assange with the Iraq War.
I'm not that stupid or that desparate. How very telling that they've got nothing left than to attack Keller over the Iraq War. That's all they've got to refute what he wrote about Assange.
I'm not a Bill Keller fan or friend. Not only did I call him out last week, I've done so before. But I will call him out for what he does. If I objected to an article he wrote, I could call out the article.
If I objected to an article he wrote, or told you I did, and then spent the rest of my journal entry griping about his stance on the Iraq War? I think that would tell you that I really can't object to the article he wrote so I'm desperate to sling mud at him some other way.
It's really amazing to see the Cult and realize what non-thinkers they are and how driven by hate they are.
