MSM - If We Can't Report, We'll Make it up!

Living with the MSM is really getting old.

You, know it like I said before, if you had to be with someone who is constantly bitching and moaning about this and that, and sharing only the negative points and never has anything positive to say, you get a little sick and tired of hanging around them.

Nothing has brought this more to bear than in the last weeks since Katrina and now Rita. Between the hurricanes, the MSM and the Democratic response, I can't tell what has devastated us more.

For the MSM, I think they are shown only that they can no longer just report the news, they have gone completely over to simply creating it.

Whether it's Tim Russert "in the moment" with a democratic hack in Louisiana shedding Alligator tears, reading DNC talking points to generate fear and hate, or to predictions of massive body counts and dooms day scenarios, which never materialized. They have made themselves even further irrelevant as a source of real and accurate information.

Their political bias - if in doubt before 2004, is now widely known. But

President Bush was criticized for being on vacation before Katrina, and then being asked if "he was in the way" before Rita.

Can you imagine that? That's the where the MSM is at today. Asking the President of the United States IN the way in preparation for a national disaster. Pretty comical, if not downright pathetic.

One would ask in all these disasters whether the MSM has been in the way of us getting the facts, by them providing objective reporting, and yes, NEWS. Real news - not some prissy editorial by plastic haired prima-donas doing their best Dan Rather impersonations, but NEWS - just what is going on.

Sadly, that's gone for good.

Gone are the days of simply reporting the news - you know, just the facts. The hard line reporter "getting the story" is long gone. Instead today you have "news readers" - pretty faces that "speak words that scroll from a prompter" written by an editor, along with the input of psychology/socialogy consutants that help them "shape the words" so as to get the greatest "emotional effect".

Rita now has come and gone. The MSM is talking about how Houston and Galveston "dodged a bullet". But wait. In a matter of days they will criticizing local officials for ordering mass evacuations when it turned out it wasn't necessary. The beat goes on.

For me, for future storms, I"m turning on the Weather Channel.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


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

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 …
