| I dunno, Mary. This article seems very fishy to me. Who is Raymond Rolak? National Correspondent for...boxscorenews.com? It has typos, wrong information (Saudi Arabia), quotes and stuff they failed to attribute to other sources -- that last one is the biggest red flag to me. |
To me, when I read it last night after I saw the numerous retweets on Twitter, I immediately dismissed it as one of these pseudo-journalism articles that plague the Internet. But what do I know? :(
Article seemed on the up-and -up to me. It's my observation that many if not most journalists are sometimes sloppy in their research - especially if they are in a hurry to meet a deadline, relying on memory rather than fact. I'm not excusing it, just saying.
I'm suspecting the reference to Saudi Arabia was actually for the trip to Dubai.
Never did hear of the author before, but that doesn't make him subject to doubt imo. Guess I'll have to look him up and see what info there is before I make that determination. :)
As for the rest, I didn't find anything that hadn't been said albeit in a different way in other articles written. But, then what do I know, either?
