Jaco is out-of-line. This will be his demise. Apparently he has been dodging the bullet for a long time.

I sent Mr. Jaco a nicely worded e-mail (seriously!) explaining how to find Wikipedia on the internet and the more explicit dictionary of slang terms: the Urban Dictionary. Direct links to 'teabagger' were included.

Of course, I also explained that citing these as sources is not a journalism best-practice, but that they should give him a quick start to finding the (ever elusive in journalism) FACTS. And I even used small words and kept it short...unlike this post (but this is an intelligent audience).

I didn't know about the fake cnn "reporting" during Desert Shield/Storm so I looked it up on YouTube. WOW! No wonder that still bothers him when it is brought up. What a joke he is. Smelled rocket fuel and felt light headed indeed. hahahaha

It also appeared that all that talk about tea bagging had him pretty excited......

Well I didn't know this about Jaco. I don't want to watch Fox anymore. What a jerk. That's what most of the media is like nowadays and I don't like it at all.
