Talk about a drive by.
Which part aren't facts? The part about FISA being gutted by the current admin, with signoff by the current congress? Sounds pretty balanced to me.
EDIT: Oops, this was actually in a DM Reg. Editorial from a few days earlier. My bad. You're right, Doak is placing the blame pretty squarely on the Republicans, but since you made the bed...
The current political structure, which includes the media pundits and rampant corporate influence, has succeeded in creating a bunch of knee jerk zombies unable to draft a coherent response to any disagreement. This is particularly frightening when the facts
are not in dispute, as is the case with this commentary. It is sufficient to sow the seeds of unsubstantiated doubt.
Sometimes, when people don't agree with you, it is not because they are wrong, but because you are getting your information from liars and hucksters.
It would be more convincing to post an equally reasoned and fact based response. But then nobody you know would read it I suppose. Also, good luck coming up with the facts.
