Blog wars over the cropped photos
I hate to see disagreements between bloggers interfere with a search for truth. I didn’t like it when Lizard’s would automatically reject any links to facts from sites to the left of them here in the past, nor do I like when blogs reject LGF’s facts because of a petty grudge or our perceived move to the left.
As to AP, and Hot Air, I have a confession to make, I sometimes read his blog and see some wheat amid the chaff.
Hot Air and AP often post facts that are not at all welcome on his site, and AP gets a lot of flack for so doing. He’s been accused of being “LGF light” for his anti-Palin posts for example.
In a perfect world, sites like Hot Air and LGF would respect each other while disagreeing on many issues, and slamming each other over past bad blood. I think AP’s reluctance to credit LGF on this story was a attempt to get out a important story without seeing it rejected out of hand because of it’s source.
I often did the same in the early days of my membership here. If I found a story on Huffington, or Media Matters for example, I’d try to find a indirect link. It was silly when I had to do that, and just as silly that AP has to do the same. The real truth does not just reside on the left, right or middle, it can be found everywhere and more sites like LGF need to accept that.
