Jill Carroll and Piling on April 2, 2006Posted by Administrator in Blogging, Cultural Pessimism, MSM.
Just a quick note on the release of Jill Carroll, and the subsequent outrage Right bloggers engaged in when a video surfaced of her praising her captors and criticizing the Bush Administration.
When I first heard about this video, my first thought was "Stockholm Syndrome", and my second was, "Hello. She's a hostage. Could she have been threatened in some way to do this?". Anyway, I never wrote anything on it, as I felt that it might have been a bit too soon to comment. Besides, the poor woman has just returned from one of what the APA calls the five most stressful situations any human can hope to walk away from. Why get on her now?
Seems that I was correct to do so.
