…would either King Solomon or Mark Twain kiss the lips of the writer or editor of this news article?

Did the Chicago Tribune headline of an article titled , Doubt cast on Embassy threat, purposely mislead readers with TDS, Trump Derangement Syndrome?

The Purpose of This Post

Is to make readers and the Chicago Tribune editors aware that I am mad about the choice of words on this front page headline.

King Solomon

The first one to plead his cause seems right, until his neighbor comes and examines him. (Proverb 18:17 MKJV)

An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips. (Proverb 24:26 NIV)

Mark Twain

A newspaper is not just for reporting the news as it is, but to make people mad enough to do something about it.”

“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re mis-informed.”

What’s My Point?

I happened to hear on the radio the interview reported in the article and was surprised when I read the headline.

The article states Esper did not see evidence but based on what he did see, he commented: “What I’m saying is I share the Presidents view that probably my expectation was that they were going after to go after the embassies.”

What to Discern?

Should Esper tell the interviewer all the details of the decision?

I remember when all the details were given on TV to millions across the world how Osama Bin Laden was killed when Obama ordered the Seals to invade his hideout may resulted in The Costliest Day in SEAL Team Six History.

Some wonder if revealing all the details contributed to the deaths of 15 of the navy seals who participated in the death of Obama Bin Laden raid. Also, the doctor who revealed the location, I believe is still in a Pakistan prison for revealing the location to the USA..

In other words, is it wise to broadcast military information that could endanger the lives of sources or participants?

In My Opinion,

Neither King Solomon or Mark Twain would kiss the lips of the Chicago Tribune editors or writers for their obvious decision to add fuel to those suffering TDS or to perhaps present a headline in a Blue State to interest more readers suffering from TDS.

You Decide

Wise or foolish headline choice by the Chicago Tribune.

Or does the article give credence to Trumps opinion about Fake News reporting by a biased news media.

If so, does that make you mad to be misinformed by news medial who are supposed to provide news to?

Do we as a nation deserve the best and wisest leadership in our journalism sources in order to obtain the information, we need to be free and self-governing?

Regards and goodwill blogging.
