An open letter to David Carr of the New York Times

Jason Van Steenwyk, OIF Veteran, carves the heart out of the NY Times in this hard hitting analysis of the untruths in a David Carr story.

An Excerpt:

Further, you wrote of American indifference to a “war that refuses to end.’ Curious construction, that. But you need to get out more: The American public isn’t indifferent to the war. We’re indifferent to your crap coverage of the war. And that’s a huge difference. Your very own newspaper once described a soldier’s decoration as a “Purple Star,” and ascribed the Medal of Honor to an award presented to songwriters.

You really need to read the whole thing here.
