Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
Thomas Ricks author of The Generals illustrates exactly how an interviewee can get enough air time on Fox News to reveal the truth. Of course the interview is likely to be cut short and the interviewee is likely to never get an invite on Fox News again.
It is important however that a string of truth tellers be poised and ready to be on Fox News to get their one 90 seconds of Fox News fame. Interesting enough Fox News burned its viewers by giving them the impression that Mitt Romney would have a big win even as all the polls said otherwise. This means that truth tellers on Fox News at least in the near term will be able to have some impact on some of their viewers.
In the video below Fox News co-anchor Jon Scott attempts to give the Fox News Benghazi hyped story legs and credibility by using the gravitas of Thomas Ricks, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, to further disparage the Obama administration on its handling of the killing of our ambassador.
It was poetic justice the manner in which Mr. Rick answered. He called the incident a small fire fight. He did not try to diminish the death of the ambassador but the silly handling by Fox News. Most importantly he called Fox News out for what it is, the propaganda arm of the Republican Party. Listen to the video below, it is a classic.
