Media Funhouse !

The MSM is having a major meltdown over the last few days, and it has been the type of tragic-comedy one would expect from these self-rightous clowns. First David Gregory from NBC, addressing White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan :

'I'll calm down when I feel like calming down,' Gregory said. 'You answer the question.'

Asking about the Iraq War? The Sudan Genocide? The Muhammed cartoon controversy? No, he's worked into a hissy fit because he, Dick Gregory, wants to know why he, Dick Gregory, was not told sooner about Dick Cheney's hunting accident. Nice professional demeanor for a White House correspondent, no?

Over at It Comes in Pints?, they're thinking that the press is frantically working on a coverup of their own...after all, one would think the story below is pretty big, since we all know Saddam had nothing to do with terrorism:

ABC News has obtained 12 hours of tape recordings of Saddam Hussein meeting with top aides during the 1990s...
One of the most dramatic moments in the 12 hours of recordings comes when Saddam predicts — during a meeting in the mid-1990s — a terrorist attack on the United States. "Terrorism is coming. I told the Americans a long time before Aug. 2 and told the British as well … that in the future there will be terrorism with weapons of mass destruction." Saddam goes on to say such attacks would be difficult to stop....

At one point Hussein Kamel, Saddam's son-in-law and the man who was in charge of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction efforts can be heard on the tapes, speaking openly about hiding information from the U.N.
"We did not reveal all that we have," Kamel says in the meeting. "Not the type of weapons, not the volume of the materials we imported, not the volume of the production we told them about, not the volume of use. None of this was correct."
Shortly after this meeting, in August 1995, Hussein Kamel defected to Jordan, and Iraq was forced to admit that it had concealed its biological weapons program. (Kamel returned to Iraq in February 1996 and was killed in a firefight with Iraqi security forces.)

If the media made a big deal over this, they would have to admit years of snide liberal op-ed columns were, well, bullspit. The above is proof positive that Iraq had WMDs, lied about them, and planned to use them. Democrats believe, of course, that we must suffer an attack, then beg for forgiveness, before we even think of defending ourselves. Me, I prefer the George Bush method...

So the media needs to bury this story, and fast. So they bust out that old chestnut, Abu Ghraib!
"New" pictures of allegedly abused terrorists abound, about those cartoons of Muhammed? How come we can't see them? Could it be that the media likes to outrage and provoke our enemies when it can safely direct the anger to President Bush and the American people, but are willing to forgo their own freedom of speech in order to protect themselves from the Islamo-fascists? Via LGF, Salon’s Walter Shapiro is at his most craven:

Abu Ghraib cannot be allowed to fade away like some half-forgotten domestic political controversy { like they way you self-censored 9/11 pictures as "too disturbing", thus allowing it to fade away like some half-forgotten domestic political controversy? - ed.}...
That is why Salon is willing to publish these troubling photographs, even as we are ashamed to live in a country that somehow came to accept that torture and prisoner abuse were simply business as usual...

Don't use the royal "we", buddy, 'cause you do not speak for me. And tell me again, why are you against publishing those "troubling" cartoons?
And if it OK to show pictures of alleged torture by US servicemen, how about actual videotaped torture done by Saddam Hussein's cronies? If you have a strong stomach, Saddam's torture tapes can be found here:

The media has allied themselves with the Islamists, fascists, and terrorists worldwide, and are willing to stifle themselves and cover up the vile deeds of our enemies, by trying to swing America's focus to a shooting mishap by the Vice President.

We have met the enemy, and it is the Mainstream Media, forcing enemy propoganda down our throats while frantically distracting us with circus sideshows.
Based on the impotent rage of David Gregory, I have the feeling it isn't working. It therefore becomes incumbant upon the blogging community to point out the half-truths, double-standards, and coverups being perpertrated by the MSM, and make sure the untold stories, of our enemy's evil deeds and the bravery of our soldiers, are getting out.
For some reason, I still don't think the media has truly come to reckoning with the fact that their monoply on information is kaput. Yet annother story that they won't report on, I suppose...
