Response to DeminPennswoods (Original post)

Mon Jan 2, 2017, 04:43 PM

4. I discovered DU after Kelly criticized it in one of his columns from the early 2000s.

A few times, I voiced my disagreement with a column of his by either emailing him or posting my comment at the end of his column on the Post Gazette website.

As someone once explained to me, a newspaper likes to publish the output of at least one right winger in order to assuage big money corporate advertisers such as banks.

In the byline to his columns, Kelly is billed as a "National Security Expert" or some such thing. I believe that his resume reads that he is a combat veteran of the Vietnam War (I think, specifically, a veteran of the Special Forces).

I avoided his columns because I felt he sometimes related events which were either not factual or not as clear-cut as he made them out to be.

Regardless, I wish him well with his course of medical treatment.
