The Media Is On The Side Of The Enemy, Or Journalists Are Not Just Idiots, They Are Treasonous Bastards And Liars, The Lot Of 'Em

i'm hosting part of the Cotillion Ball this week, and i was going to save this link from The Anchoress for Tuesday. But i'm so pissed off that i had to post about it right now. i haven't been this outraged since Rathergate.

i mean, i shouldn't be surprised, i knew the media are a bunch of fucking liars who hate Republicans and will sell their country down the river, just to embarass Bush. But their unprincipled treason -- yes i am literally calling ABC, CBS, PBS, CNN and NBC traitors -- their clumsy treason is lengthening this war, encouraging the enemy, and costing American lives. The bastards.

What the fuck am i talking about? Look at this video clip.

Back in 1999 when Clinton was president, ABC News did a news report, which stated in unequivocal language that Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein were in contact and actively planning an alliance. ABC News actually said that Saddam's envoy told OBL "he would be welcome in Baghdad," and that Iraq was willing to help OBL get weapons of mass destruction!

This is incredible. It's positively Orwellian. It's the smoking gun for the media's hypocrisy. As far as i'm concerned there is no reason for me to trust anything they say, ever. As if i needed a reason after Jason Blairgate, Rathergate, Easongate I, Easongate II, etc. etc.

Please watch this video and pass it on whenever you hear any liberal say that there were no links between Al Qaeda and Iraq. They bought that line because their media told them so. Upon hearing the same media tell them the exact opposite, i imagine some of them will self destruct like the computer Landrew in that old Star Trek episode.

The media is not on the side of the enemy; they ARE the enemy.

Unfortunantly they represent about a third of all americans.

Dear Annika,

I know you probably hear this every day, but I love you. If you're ever on the east coast, let me know. I'll buy you a drink...

Can I just say that I'm surprised you were surprised? Nothing about the hyprocisy of the MSM surprises me anymore.

It is good to retain the capacity for outrage. When we are so cynical that we lose the capacity for outrage, we will be France. Through the device of her righteous anger, Annika is doing her part to fight against that.

"Orwellian" is absolutely right. When the truth no longer serves this media, it just erases any evidence, and pretends it never existed.

Then they expect us to react the same way.

Heard the MSM sponsored a party for some of thier fascist Islamic associates. It was a BOYB...Bring Your Own Bomb.

it is truly odd when you CAN believe the gov't and CAN'T believe a damn thing the media says.

read abraham lincoln a lot do you?

Louielouie heres a tip; you cant believe the government either. Media and government are both manipulating the truth for their own benefit.

While it might be wrong that the media didn't issue retractions or corrections it doesn't constitute lies, treason or hypocrisy when it is perfectly possible that the situation has changed.

Did you guys miss the 9-11 commission? Sure in 1999 it may have looked like Saddamn and Al Qaeda were planning to get in bed together, we now know it wasn't really true, alot of stuff can happen in 3 years.

Although it would be funny to see it, I don't think any liberals will self destruct, they will probably point out that the Government has better intelligence than ABC News.

it's interesting though, that the claims made by the ABC reporter were bolder than anything the Bush administration ever said on the subject.
