  •  actually I did, maybe you should re read (6+ / 0-)

    the PDF is by people trying to establish that there was no misconduct. It's not a finding by a court or an unbiased source. It's strictly one side trying to make their case.

    You don't read one source of a contentious issue and take it as fact do you? Please don't watch fox.

    •  Other news stories aren't much better. (0+ / 0-)

      You'd think they'd at least try to represent what the government's side of the story is.

      •  The gov't side of the story is in the transcript (0+ / 0-)

        The investigator is asked point blank what the misconduct is and he answers.

    •  I'm talking about the transcript. (0+ / 0-)

      The part where the guy is asked point blank about the nature of the misconduct and the investigator replies with a point blank answer.

      How much clearer could it be?

      The investigator told him what he did wrong.

      Please don't whitewash things like Fox.

      •  You should consider how you accumulate and (0+ / 0-)

        evaluate information. Without the ability to understand how a biased source could only present the information supporting their point of view you are susceptible to whichever side of an issue you read first, last, or exclusively.

        Because someone says something on the net doesn't make it so. The wider range of people who understand this concept the more informed citizens we have.

        People without critical reading skills are susceptible to propaganda.

        •  If you want to close your eyes, then go ahead (0+ / 0-)

          It's right there in the transcript. The investigator is quoted as telling them the exact nature of the misconduct in the transcript.

          If you're saying they doctored the transcript, I call bullshit on that.
