"Carroll: How Dare You Question Our Reporting Source

Well, the Iraqi Ministry has a rule about police talking to the press, not bloggers in America (and he never spoke with any of us or any other news organization - just the AP.) And since it was the AP that revealed his name (three different versions of it, actually) in their reporting, Carroll's ire is hilariously misplaced here.

Seems monies behind the media use it as a social(ist) engineering device to make the rich richer, keeping the average Joe in their place through use of emotionalism, fear, confusion ... emphasizing really important news about what star is doing who and what they were wearing at the time.

Why else would they be telling us what/how to think using carefully placed phrases, voice inflection, subtle nuance if they considered us intelligent???? For sure they don't.
