Open Letter to CNN

Dear CNN,

The Million Vet March on the World War II Memorial was among the largest, most compelling, inspiring and inventive acts of civil disobedience in American history…and you knew it and blew it.

You knew it because your reporter Shannon Travis, a very cordial gentleman who was wearing a stylish purple tie was present at the rally. He told Special Operations Speaks before an interview that he loved the passion of the rally. Mr. Travis undoubtedly observed the make up of the attendees of the crowd as 80-90% veterans and 10-20% veteran supporters.

In your feeble and failed attempt to mute the national enthusiasm for the Vet March you reported the event as a “tea party like rally”. 

Not speaking for all veterans, Special Operations Speaks embraces and admires the Tea Party’s support for our nations veterans and points out that not one occupy, amnesty, union, Democratic or liberal organization showed up to stand with the Vets…just the tea party.

If your editors must label this group, we insist that you label us “Vet Marchers”.

Labeling the Million Vet March as “tea party like rally” because some tea partiers showed up with “yellow Don't Tread On Me flags” [btw, someone really ought to inform your writer that they are called Gadsden flags; look it up] doesn’t mean it was a “tea party like rally”.

If one follows that logic, one might state that because some of CNN's executives, editors and reporters lean so far to the left, that CNN is a ‘Communist-like News Network’.  That would not be a fair assessment, would it?

Special Operations Speaks does not mind the ridicule from your network and other left leaning news organizations. We have grown quite accustomed to it and find it amusing. We simply ask that if you ridicule us, you get our name right.

Please in the future call us Vet Marchers or next time we remove the barricades from the war memorials we might bring them to your doorstep.
