Media=IDIOTS

It scares me how much the Average American trusts the Media...
and by Media, I mean CNN, MSNBC, FoxNews, too and the big waste of space 3 Networks.....

I read my news. I trust but verify. I use LOTS of different sources...

So it was so cool seeing this.....(There's my husband at the bottom of the screen at the end of the first row, SGM is right behind him. I get asked all the time if my husband is the Drum Major. Nope, that's Rusty Smith. My guy is the Commander......)


and then I saw this..........and am appalled at the sheer stupidity of the Media.....
Appalled but not surprised.

The RED COATS MARCHING BAND??? Are you kidding me?
They are a PRESIDENTIAL ESCORT UNIT.
They are known around the WORLD, you morons at MSNBC....

(deep breath....deep breath.....)

Okay, I'm done now. Back to your regularly scheduled lives now....

The stupidity of the media never ceases to amaze and "almost" amuse me.

I'm not sure if I should shake my head in disgust or laugh - maybe both?? Someone had no clue what they were looking at & were seriously hoping what they typed was correct or that no one else would know either. Did you e-mail them?? ;-)

I'm sorry they misidentified your H's unit. Considering all of the inaugurations that this unit has experienced, you would think the media would know. I think it is so neat that your H conducts this band. What is his primary instrument when he is not conducting? Do any of the kids take music lessons?

Oh no freakin' way...NO WAY.

But on the other hand, there was a FANTASTIC shot of a fifer in the USA today...you could see the spit frozen on his fife!!! And while they didn't identify the group as the OGFDC, they DID say it was a military band (the caption reads: Military Bands and Honor guards lead the parade...)

BTW - I see they fixed the caption. Good.
