Vets for Freedom’s Wade Zirkle
I hope you can get over to their site and make a donation today as this group’s voice is necessary and long overdue. MSM will no longer have an excuse to parade anti-war extremists or John Zogby or any other self-proclaimed expert on what the “troops” think without consulting a large organization of combat veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Each time you see such a segment, be sure to ping the producer and host and ask why Zirkle and others from the group were not consulted. The same goes for newspaper coverage and opinion columnists.
Milbloggers like Mudville Gazette, MajorK, TFBoggs and BuckSargent have long helped provide insight into what the troops actually saw and felt, but text reports didn’t help the world of audio and video production that needs talking heads.
Wade Zirkle and friends are representative and they are ready, willing and able to educate the media.
Help them out.
I will be rebroadcasting the Zirkle interview in the first hour today.
NOTE TO HOUSE AND SENATE MEMBERS/STAFF:
If you have ever said “I support the troops,” now is the time to show it outside of you floor votes. Direct your campaign staff to make a donation from your coffers to VetsforFreedom.org.
When you do, let me know so we can hold you up as an example to your colleagues.
