    Default Irresponsible reporting? Or purposefully misleading?

    So here is a link to a story talking about a woman who fell victim to post-9/11 Patriot Act paranoia and was found guilty of what the LA Times reporter says was essentially no big deal.

    http://www.boston.com/news/nation/ar...r_patriot_act/

    Here is a lengthy examination of the story which includes actual facts written by an attorney.

    http://www.popehat.com/2009/01/22/2793/

    The second article is a bit lengthy but a fascinating read for anyone interested in journalism, the patriot act, modern law and legal issues are covered by journalists.

    I think you guys will dig this.

    I vote purposefully misleading. The media definitely have an agenda and will stop at nothing to try to sway public opinion.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    I remember a bunch of guys arrested or who forced an airliner to make an emergancy landing because they were stupid enough to make a joke about having a bomb or that they were going to blow up the plane.

    I remember them because all those events happened in the 1980s and 1990s - BEFORE the Patriot Act.
