Which is more impressive?

Build up the guy your native son beats or say your native son beat this crappy dude?

Let's say Ohio's native son is the functional equivalent of a David. And you are telling the story. Wouldn't the crowd be even more thrilled if you made Goliath into something much bigger and more impressive before telling how David defeated him in order to pump David up even more?

Exactly.

I don't care if people are offended by my opinion on Lee. He was a gentleman, and a warrior. His actions after the surrender show that for all to see who can be bothered to look.

Some, perhaps even most, of his officers wanted to conduct a guerrilla war, he admonished them to not do that, that the war was over, and that the healing should begin.

That Grant was equally magnanimous in victory, made the aftermath much easier than it might other wise have been. Not that there weren't issues, of course, there were...but it could have been so much worse.

Magnanimity in victory, as well as defeat, as demonstrated by those two fine officer and gentlemen is a lesson some could learn these days...not just in Washington DC, either.


Robert E. Lee was a great Man, and an even greater General. One of the best Officers this country ever produced.

Magnanimity in victory and defeat is not a lost art, but it's becoming less and less common, unfortunately.

It's amazing what Lee was able to do, considering the Confederacy's disadvantages as compared to the Union. The Generals he commanded, Jackson, Stuart, Longstreet, Forrest, Bragg, and the rest, would have followed him anywhere.

Anyway, shame on NBC. People should call this stuff out.

What's absurd is seeing the same people, who habitually link to all kinds of garbage from sketchy sources and zealously support a uniquely dishonest president, concern trolling about accuracy in the media or dishonesty in general.


at what point does one side actually gain the moral high ground and become the official "correct" one?

Hahahahahahaha you can't provide non stop fake news from Fox like we see almost daily from the liberal propaganda networks.

CNN wouldn't retract their fake story recently after their source publicly said it was fake news.

Stop listening to morons who don't care about truth. Fox has a lot of crap but is by far the least biased news in the msm.

Hey Xuen! Don't be disrespecting Akhenaten by comparing him to Obama!

Akhenaten was a free thinker. Barry was a puppet.

The civil war had nothing really to do with slaves... it had everything to do with the 10th Amendment, which really got in the way of the Northern banksters.


No, no, no, no... please, just no.

The entire war was literally (signed and in description in the declaration of secession from the southern states) that they were leaving for the main purpose of upholding the institution of slavery, as a means of political and economic power, under the guise of states rights. Which of course they were entitled too, but for the reasons, were immoral and ethically wrong, and was a ploy to rip apart the union instead of strengthening it, all because Lincoln and the republicans won the election.


Man, Democrats have been whining about losing elections for a looong time. Didn't realize the "Burn the country down cause we lost" tactic has been in their playbook this long.

If they continue in this route it'll end the exact same way this time too.

Perhaps you could articulate an argument rather than expecting me to decipher one?

I can only imagine that you're making reference to 47 CFR section 73.1217? That gets trotted out once in a while by partisans of either side. It narrowly covers broadcast hoaxes, specifically false information about a crime or catastrophe. The text here:


§ 73.1217 Broadcast hoaxes.

No licensee or permittee of any broadcast station shall broadcast false information concerning a crime or a catastrophe if:

(a) The licensee knows this information is false;

(b) It is forseeable that broadcast of the information will cause substantial public harm, and

(c) Broadcast of the information does in fact directly cause substantial public harm.
Any programming accompanied by a disclaimer will be presumed not to pose foreseeable harm if the disclaimer clearly characterizes the program as a fiction and is presented in a way that is reasonable under the circumstances.


Furthermore, what constitutes public harm was laid out in 57 FR 28640:


For purposes of this rule, “public harm” must begin immediately, and cause direct and actual damage to property or to the health or safety of the general public, or diversion of law enforcement or other public health and safety authorities from their duties. The public harm will be deemed foreseeable if the licensee could expect with a significant degree of certainty that public harm would occur. A “crime” is any act or omission that makes the offender subject to criminal punishment by law. A “catastrophe” is a disaster or imminent disaster involving violent or sudden event affecting the public.


Not only are we talking about a tweet, which I'm sure Ajit Pai would love for the FCC to regulate — but they do not — there's 0 chance that 73.1217 would apply to the content of that tweet if it were broadcasted by NBC.

But hey, you keep cheering for more government censorship if that's your thing.

However, even I know that general Grant came from Ohio. It should not have taken much journalistic genius to guess that a politician speech-making in Ohio would be praising the "native son".


Lol are you from Ohio, you say this like it should be common knowledge... geez

He was a great general. There's no crime, or mistake, in saying that.

His little rag tag army, ill equipped, ill supplied more often than not, gave the much more powerful Union army fits right up to the day the surrender was signed at Appomattox.

I'd match Lee up against any Union general, save perhaps George Thomas, who should have had Shermans spot, save for, you guessed it, politics. Sherman was Grant's boy, and while a good general, wasn't in Thomas' class.

Was he as good as Lee? Maybe. He was certainly as good as Lee's right hand man Longstreet.

There's nothing at all wrong with acknowledging Lee's talents as a general, and as a leader.

Dang , you know your US history
