Rolling Stone, El Chapo, and Gen. McChrystal

Posted by madjillmom on January 12, 2016

Rolling Stone continues it downhill roll. They have published Sean Penn’s article on El Chapo. The criminal was able to approve the questions before hand and approve the article that was published, all while evading authorities on a man-hunt for him. I wonder if Gen. Stanley McChrystal would have lost his job if he was given the same treatment. Maybe he could have stripped out the offending Obama parts of the article published and kept his job. Somewhere in between all this, Rolling Stone ran a debunked article on rape at UVA.

Is there anyone in charge at Rolling Stone? If so, did they actually get a journalism degree? Is Rolling Stone selling it’s reputation to Drug Lords? I think so.

Contrast and Compare MSM Reactions to Generals

Posted by madjillmom on June 22, 2010

This article is thought provoking. I will tell my sons that there is no upside to being a General. Wonder who will take the job next? The Obama administration is letting him twist in the very public wind. What point does that serve? Obama will get to kick some ass, I guess.

Disrespectin’ Obama and Gen. Stanley McChrystal

Posted by madjillmom on June 22, 2010

It is unsettling to see the process play out. Yes, General McChrystal is responsible for the “loose lips” of his staff that has resulted in the Rolling Stone report on disrespectin’ Pres. Obama. I know, it is against the rules for the military to speak out in this fashion. It was stupid. I have to think that under the stress of command in Afghanistan, the staff, in true bravado fashion, trash talked their bosses. It was incredibly stupid to do so within earshot of a publication that would like nothing better than to rat on the military. Now it will all play out on the world stage. People will be ruined. So sad.

I can’t help but think about the recent photos showing Obama staffers playing shirtless beer pong. They might have been trash talking their bosses. They did this while the ongoing crisis in the gulf was happening. While the President and his minions were telling us there was no greater urgency of the President and his staff, there are some of them shirtless and swilling beer. Just blowin’ off some steam while under pressure. Sorta like Pres. Obama needing to play golf at least once a week during this crisis.

Perhaps if Gen. McChrystal and staff had been shirtless swilling beer or on the golf course, it would have been excusable.

It is sad.
