They ought to be "Red Like Us"

This has got to be the most dumb-assed article of 2006 and we have eleven months to go:

Via the UK Guardian (where else?) US media at 'all-time low'

"Arabic-language media have an unprecedented chance to take over as the world's premier news source because trust in their US counterparts plummeted following their "shameful coverage" of the war in Iraq, a conference heard today.
The US media reached an "all-time low" in failing to reflect public opinion and Americans' desire for trusted information, instead acting as a "cheerleader" for war, said Amy Goodman, the executive producer and host of US TV and radio news show Democracy Now!, at a news forum organised by al-Jazeera.

Newsweek's Paris bureau chief, Christopher Dickey, said the US media were dying because of cutbacks and weren't interested in covering the world outside America.

But other delegates questioned whether Arabic media were up to the challenge."


Forget about the obvious - that someone with a straight face and not being high on some serious wacky-weed would put forth any Arab language media (Aljazeera) as a serious objective news source. Yeh! And madam Pelosi has a poster of GW on her bedroom wall.

"Failing to reflect public opinion". Sorry Amy (Chief Moonbat) Goodman - I missed that in Journalism School. Since when do jounalist write to reflect the public's opinion, although you must either be blind or bullcraping or both because that's all we see from the left infused MSM.

"Ms Goodman said in the run-up to the Iraq war a study of NBC, CBS, ABC and PBS newscasts over a fortnight recorded 393 interviews on the conflict, of which only three reported the anti-war movement.

"This is a media cheerleading for war and does not represent mainstream opinion in the US," she added.

Ms Goodman said she believed the policy of embedding reporters with coalition forces was "a total failure for independent journalism ... western audiences need to see the other side of the story - from communities and hospitals".

"If people in the US had a true picture of war - dead babies, women with their legs blown off, dead and dying soldiers - they would say 'no'," she said."


Oh, "Dead babies", You mean like after an abortion Amy? Oh right, they don't count. Don't fit the "platform", don't serve "the cause".

More on Amy Goodman here. What do they say? Consider the source?

By the way Ms. Goodman, what "study" was that you are referencing? A Daily Kos poll? A Democratic Underground promoted diary?

Amazing how the left are quick to "Kerry Math" like no one is going to ask them for paper-proof, or check their numbers.

But aside from fuzzy math, your assertion is bull. Fact is, either you're blind or stupid, (or both), but we've seen plenty of the horrors of this war - most courtesy of your precious and terrorist funding Aljazeera - who make sure we see the lastest murder of American and foreign innocents.

No withstanding the MSM in this country, as they and you on he left keep body counts and celebrate then they reach "milestones" of 1000, 1500, 2000....dead.

Fact is, what doesn't get reported and what is true whether people like you believe it or not is that there has been phenomenal progress in just three years. But of course you wouldn't see it. Doesn't fit your "Bush lied people died" belief system or your world viewed through your "Red" glasses.

If any, that's the failure of the MSM - they are way too much like people like you.

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.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Monday Morning Intelligence with Kool Aid and the NY Times - UPDATE

Followup to previous post.

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
