The Mainstream Media - Rewriting Those Embarrassing Facts

WAPO: Harold Meyerson: The 'Stuff Happens' Presidency

"We're not number one. We're not even close.

By which measures, precisely, do we lead the world? Caring for our countrymen? You jest. A first-class physical infrastructure? Tell that to New Orleans. Throwing so much money at the rich that we've got nothing left over to promote the general welfare? Now you're talking.

The problem goes beyond the fact that we can't count on our government to be there for us in catastrophes. It's that a can't-do spirit, a shouldn't-do spirit, guides the men who run the nation. Consider the congressional testimony of Joe Allbaugh, George W. Bush's 2000 campaign manager, who assumed the top position at FEMA in 2001. He characterized the organization as "an oversized entitlement program," and counseled states and cities to rely instead on "faith-based organizations . . . like the Salvation Army and the Mennonite Disaster Service."


(Sigh)....We'll leave alone the fact of how a "wefare state" exemplified in New Orleans contributed to the deaths of thousands, for another time.

For now, the MSM drumbeat continues.

The constant...."We suck"....or rather, "Bush Sucks"......from commentary to commentary....

Of course (if they spoke the truth), the Media couldn't say "Nagin sucks" or "Blanco sucks" if their lives depended on it.

The continual flogging of the Federal Government (or just Bush) in the aftermath of a NATURAL disaster is incredible. The Washington Post OP-Ed's leading the way. By all means read here, here as well. Or even MSNBC Keith Obermann's "Winson Churchill moment", the MSM re-routing of the truth of what happened with Hurricane Katrina is almost mind-boggling.

In Katrina the aftermath was a result of a "beforemath", which was an incredible display of piss-poor planning and outright incompetance of the City's Mayor and a "Soap Opra" Governor, both who as Democrats proved once again, that if we leave our disaster planning folks like them - we're dead.

The fact, the irrefutable fact is that the Federal Government (Run by Republicans), had to go and bail the City and State Government (Run by Democrats) out of their incompentency.

That's the STORY. No WONDER the Liberal MSM is hammering (or trying to) the story the OTHER way around.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
