to be offended by. The interviewer was in a reputable paper for public consumption. I assume that when you pick up the paper every morning that you don't believe a thing you read whether about the Middle East, our government, the Catholic sex scandal or any other bit of news???? Give me a break.
When we discuss what we read with any article, we don't go back to the "source" and ask are you sure this is accurate? We expect the journalist to do its job ethically. If the "source" has issues with the story, then it behooves the "source" to set the record straight, not the readers as we are not the one with the inside information.
LLB acted professionally. RLH in her responses on this board acted professionally. It's a shame others can't follow suit and instead have to play the blame game, especially where unwarranted. But the blame game works, ask Hitler.
