"I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which, in truth, they are. If I killed them all there would be news from Hell before breakfast."Now, there was a general who didn't mince words. Like this one:
General Honore keeps telling the MSM to move on and adapt to the new reality, instead of trying to justify their original erroneous reports. However, as Major K notes they continue to honor themselves for being very wrong. Slow learners.
My own take on "first reports" here.
