Response to Senator Tankerbell (Reply #16)

35. You have a low post count, but some people on DU like to kill the messenger...

 

Certain people on DU have a tendency to attack the source of a report when they can NOT attack the report itself. Thus you will see people attacking cites like Russia's RT, the British papers and other sources of reports they dislike. Now some of the attacks on sources are valid (Fox News is the classic example of a bad source of news) but others are just hating the message and since they can not attack the message they attack the messenger (Russia's RT has been a good source of basic news, but you have to watch it, RT does put a Russian slat to its news, something some people object to). You see a slat in Al Jazeera (Through it is a pro Qatar slat, which is sometimes weird for Qatar is both a Wahhabi Sunni Nation AND Independent of the House of Saud that rules Saudi Arabia).

Hang on, get use to such attacks for once you get use to them, you will ignore them and get some good information on DU and hopefully you will provide some good information.
