yet you seem very upset that we did not report more on the RAP. I say to you instead that reporting and devoting time to such an obvious hoax and
giving them the credibility that they wish to have but do not deserve would in fact create a massive climate of fear in the United States and
Excuse me i wasent in the least bit upset at the thought of you or any other outlet buying into the RAP were did yea get that idea? i coulden give a
monkies about that! repeat i just was doing a bit of research on the state of the US since 9/11 an stumbled upon this stuff for the first time! an i
looked on the search button an seen it wasent on ATS! so hey presto i put it up an this is what i get!
slagged off personely! so i figger iv hit a nerve here lets see were this leads to,,thats it end of story as they say...
You started multiple threads when one would do just fine, you made comments that you would never see this in major media outlets defending the RAP
tooth and nail, as soon as I pointed out why you wouldn't you went on a tear over the BBC and media in general trying to derail your own thread, then
whenever you get called on it you just claim it was all because the story was interesting? What?
I'm probably much more of a follower of American politics and events than most Britons, even though they care quite a bit too, because of my job but
I draw the line at listening to Christian Nationalist propaganda with no backing to it.
If you take away anything from this please, just do some more research before you buy into something. Sometimes when you don't hear about a story
from the major networks, it's not because we didn't run it down, it's because we found nothing at the end when we did. Trust me that's quite
annoying for us too, but in the case of the RAP I'm actually quite glad it turned out to be a hoax.
This story is actually a sterling example of why we have researchers in journalism and check our facts.
