When NPR recently took the Declaration of Independence line-by-line to Twitter, citizens were alarmed. Not recognizing the source of these tweeted quotes, readers responded in knee-jerk fashion. One even wrote: Are you drunk? Your silly tweets make your state of mind questionable. Others assumed that NPR was personally attacking President Trump.
It just goes to show how little most know about their own heritage. Defending it has become a battle of he-said/she-said, rather than a transmission of accurate knowledge.
