Drudge Shouldn’t Have Broken the Moratorium

by SunnyRight on February 28, 2008

While it may be interesting to discover that Prince Harry, third in line for the British throne, has taken it upon himself to serve in Afghanistan, the revelation’s potential consequences weren’t worth the unveiling.

A moratorium on the news had been willingly placed on mediums, who understand that the Prince is, in fact, a moving target. Just the fact that he’s a soldier alone places him in extreme peril, and the fact he’s British royalty only increases that danger.

So why did Matt Drudge feel it necessary to break that silence, placing Harry in potentially more danger? Michelle Malkin put it excellently.

There should be a compelling public interest rationale for ignoring the personal and national security risks of breaking the media embargo.

In this case, the only rationale was the compelling need to splash PRINCE HARRY’S NAME IN WORLD WAR IV FONT on a slow-news day.

Correct. Bad judgment, Matt. Bad judgment.

    I think that everything wrote was very reasonable. But, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier title? I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good, but what if you added a title to maybe get people’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little vanilla. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write post headlines to get viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your website a little livelier.|
