WSJ's Crovitz: "Creating The Internet" And Getting Everything Wrong

There is nobody like the Rabid Right for twisting and confusing reality till it's unrecognizable.

Media Matters does a great job showing how WSJ writer, Crovitz, twists the truth to tell a lie. Crovitz distorts the President's statement on internet and how Governent funded efforts contributed to the creation of the internet.

THis is a great article....


Crovitz quoted a 2004 email in which Taylor wrote: "The Arpanet was not an Internet. An Internet is a connection between two or more computer networks."

........ Here's the part of that email Crovitz left out: "The ARPAnet was not an internet. An internet is a connection between two or more computer networks. The ARPAnet, with help from thousands of people, slowly evolved into the Internet. Without the ARPAnet, the Internet would have been a much longer time in coming."
