Correcting a fact and not the intent

Army Blogging PR

Donald Sensing received the same email that I did (and probably quite a few others).  It appears that the Army has engaged a PR firm to act as a filter to military bloggers to provide "exclusive editorial content".

My response was a "send me more details" email.  "Exclusive editorial content" could be a variety of things.  The content and the expectations are what will determine my participation.

And who knows if this firm is legitimate or not?  My first thought was it was some kind of trap...

I suspect (and have verified in some cases) that we retired and veteran bloggers have no intentions of dancing to anyone's tune (let alone the DoA), but we are interested in getting out the content that the MSM fails to provide about our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines (and you Coasties, too).

After all, that's why you are here, right?
