NY Times Journalist Michael Powell Returns

Richard Ray Harris

I'd like to voice what I think MIGHT be going through the minds of us old enough to remember Powell's equivocations and revisions during My Lai Massacre hearings.. Powell is a company man who changes companies but stays close to power. The fact that he consistently upholds any US foreign adventure as justified shows the dead spot where his soul should be. He does not recoil against the violence of war because he has always been behind a desk with the rest of the chicken****s.

Who should have and could have stood up and said no to Bush and the UN presentation? Think of the suffering he has caused.

Just a suggestion, Mr. Powell, if you read this.

You're having a conversation with the Bloodhound. While you're welcome to respond to some of the comments if you want to, don't feel obligated to respond to them. Lord knows that the majority of the readers skip over the majority of the comments, because they're dumb or silly or obnoxious or just add nothing.

Basically, I don't really think you have to tell the commenters to grow up. They won't. Just have your conversation with the adults. Otherwise you can end up sounding like an adult explaining to someone else's kid why 'poopoohead' is not a cogent criticism of your latest piece. And after about the fortieth time you do that, you burn out on blogging and are never heard from again.



Bravo, Bravo! I thought intelligent discourse was dead. It is so refreshing to see two adults talking in clear and precise language to come to terms with differing opinions. I hope and pray that this is contagious in the most virulent way.


"Lord knows that the majority of the readers skip over the majority of the comments, because they're dumb or silly or obnoxious or just add nothing."

Well, that's certainly the kind of statement that some people have learned to recognize as a gross generalization - maybe even a mean-spirited one.

My own suggestion - read every comment, no matter how painful it may be, no matter how ill-informed it may seem. If Abe Lincoln could stand the effort once each week of meeting every constituent willing to stand in line at the White House, I expect that the rest of us could make it through a few comment threads.

Unless some people are busier, or more important, than Abe Lincoln was.


While it is commendable that Powell is engaging in terms of the critique of his saccharine article on Giuliani, I have basically tuned off the MSM largely. Take Matthews for instance, he obsesses so much over Sen. Clinton's "marital problems", but has never mentioned Giuliani's! Sometimes, I think he would have preferred the senator be a divorcee like Giuliani. He leads on most days with some not-so-falttering info on the Clintons. These people need to get out of their closeted world more often.

Good to read all this; thanks to all.

Michael Powell may regard his recent piece on Giuliani as explicitly a "piece" and part of an ongoing epistle that reaches more than a decade into the past, to "paint, over time, a complex picture of a candidate. Can you do that in one piece? Nope."

But, perhaps reporters can let us know which of their work to read as more of a fragment, more of a parallax or sidelight, than a grand view. "Certainly, many readers picked up on the tone of the piece, not least the Giuliani camp," because they had that context.

Expecting all, or even most readers, to know that context seems less than fair to me. Without that specific historical context, we have the current context of candidates who lack the honesty and intelligence to endorse evolution, or the decency and integrity to condemn torture... and a press that pampers and promotes them.
