A US Soldier Waterboards His Own Child


A US Soldier Waterboards His Own Child – The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan

No US paper has yet to report the story. Why am I not surprised?

    All of the MSM outlets essentially published the exact same story that had already been out for hours. I still don’t understand why so many articles place quotation marks around the word “waterboarding” as if it’s not a proper word. Would they do that if the egregious action were “whipped,” “beat,” or “drowned”? I doubt it.

    I think it’s simply because they don’t teach style in journalizm classez any more. Otherwise they would know that quotes are properly used only for direct quotes.

    On the other hand, it may be used correctly in reference to the fact that what the guy did is not technically waterboarding, but the original writer wanted to use a sensational word anyway. In any case, I hope the kid goes to grandma if the mother isn’t able to handle it. She sure doesn’t need to be with that psychopath.

    That’s the important point, not the style.

Got an opinion? Keep it clean. Don't ask open-ended questions, like "Does the Pope belong to a coven?" Make it pertinent.
