  •  I agree that message discipline is good (4+ / 0-)

    but when you say you don't like how they use it, I suspect you're referring to the misinformation, lies, innuendos, and false assertions that they consistently repeat, using their message discipline.

    Message discipline is good when it's truthful, just as writing a headline or story needs to be truthful, as was not the case in this situation.

    You demean a headline on a website as being unimportant.  What you apparently don't take into consideration is that headlines on websites are often shown on the teevee, and also scrolled across the bottom of a network or cable show for millions more to read, and also discussed based on just the headline alone.

    America truly is a shining beacon for all the world to admire, because when we torture people, we have medical personnel overseeing the abuse.

    •  Was THIS headline shown on the teevee? n/t (0+ / 0-)

      As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

      •  You'll have to do your own research on that one. (0+ / 0-)

          •  Okay, you're annoying me now. (3+ / 0-)

            I stand by my claim because it's a fact; not opinion.

            What you apparently don't take into consideration is that headlines on websites are often shown on the teevee, and also scrolled across the bottom of a network or cable show for millions more to read, and also discussed based on just the headline alone.

            And if you want to know if this particular headline was shown on television, like I said, you do the research yourself.
