Linda Foley Won't Back Down

Media Slander has been following the story of Linda Foley, president of The Newspaper Guild, who recently accused the military of deliberately targeting journalists. Rather than apologizing for her remarks, she instead attacks her critics in a recently published statement. Media Slander has responded by fisking her statement. They are also calling for people to write to the individual Guild chapters to express outrage over Ms. Foley's remarks.

While it's no secret that many journalists oppose the war on terror that does not give them the right to make slanderous accusations against the U. S. Military. As my colleague Jim points out in a previous post, anti-war remarks from the Left have historically done more harm than good. Ms. Foley should apologize immediately. Based on her most recent statement, it doesn't appear that will happen anytime soon.

Update: The Augusta Free Press has a column today entitled Potty Mouth Politics that directly addresses over-the-top rhetoric such as what we have seen from Ms. Foley. (Hat tip: The Blue State Conservatives)

Trackback Pings


Much appreciated. We really need to band together to

A.) Defend the honor of the US Military & Troops.
B.) Save our Media from self-destruction.

We all have issues with the 'Mainstream Media'. But we need them. We simply need them to clean their own house before they reduce themselves to an irreparable state.

There are some outstanding MSM Journalists out there. pay them some attention...

Jack Kelly, Tom Lipscomb, Robert Caldwell, John Leo...just to name a few. They need to be applauded as much as the polar opposites need chastising.

Be sure to employ both, not just screaming alone.

Thank you so much for taking on the issue.
