1. Excellent that kind of garbage doesn't belong on any credible blog.

To Greenwald and Scahill, whose reputations were maligned by a person who used the platform of Raw Story in ways it was not intended and with whom I personally take issue, I have privately apologized. This is my public one. It is my belief that reasonable people at every point on the political spectrum can look at the same set of facts and draw different and even sometimes equally valid conclusions about policy issues, politicians and the political system, and that those disagreements need not and should not descend into unsupportable, hyperbolic personal attacks intended to silence those with whom we disagree.


It really is shameful to see the personal attacks on writers who are doing the job journalists are supposed to do, the childish, baseless attacks.

All it does is demonstrate an inability to prove them wrong and elevates them above the fray.

Good for Raw Story for apologizing.
