    Have a "4" from a fellow Baltimoron.

    I don't suppose there's any chance this story will be picked up by the "liberal" AP?

      Here I was telling the truth about this guy, and all the major outlets were running with the AP's verision of the story lifted from the WXIA interview in which he just sorta "aw shucks" his way though saying that he'd hire EVERYBODY if it weren't for Obama's policies.  Nothing about the militia ties, nothing about the anti-islamic, survivalist rants.

        This is why I became interested and determined.  I'm not a journalist and I was quickly able to find information that should have been and should continue to be questioned. The press isn't just negligent.  They deliberately ignore facts and ridicule the few who try to present them, while they create an alternative version tailored to an agenda.  I knew that before I read your articles.  When a link to your article of 11/23 was passed to me, I knew I was on the right track.  There aren't many left in the journalism profession who would do what you've done.

      I imagine they're still running with the "poor misunderstood Southern boy" thing.

        A google shows that my Examiner stories have been included in the search engine, but the actual "media" is still running with the "poor georgia knucklehead who is beaten down by Obama" story.

        Frankly, I don't know what else to do.  I've tweeted about this until my fingers are raw and bleeding.  I've written to Keith Olberman and Lawrence O'Donnell until my fingers are raw and bleeding.  I've gone to all the "news" sites that tell the "poor southern boy" story and left comments until my fingers are raw and bleeding.

        Then, I soaked my fingers for awhile and started all over again.

        All my stories are fully sourced, verified with the individuals involved, have Looman speaking in his own words, and yet they get ignored in favor of the "poor southern boy" story.

        Liberal media my pink, chapped ass.

          Send it to Rachel Maddow.  She would be great with this and is good at showing what is connected to what.  She did the best job, in my opinion, to show where the opponents of health care reform were coming from.  She would love to have this much of the research done.  

          Also--60 Minutes has been showing some of the ugly side of politics lately.  Try sending it to them.
