The US Department of Defense has launched a blog-like site that is being used to rebutt articles and editorials that contain factual inaccuracies about defense activities.
It looks and feels like a blog in terms of format and update – but clearly isn’t a blog since it does not allow comments or trackbacks… but it is an interesting application of the internet – and one that is likely long overdue for the defense establishment. The mainstream media often gets the facts wrong when it comes to military personnel and operations.
