The left news media’s coverage of the Val Plame affair leaves no doubt that “bias” has been jettisoned for outright lying. Infected with or limited to such blatant disregard for the truth, some Americans no doubt believe Karl Rove will be indicted, and that this “goes all the way to the top.”
The left media no longer even makes a pretence of fairness or accuracy. Much like the biased coverage of Martha Stewart succeeding in convincing many that she was convicted and jailed for “insider trading”, the left press has repeatedly lied in and effort to convince that Scooter Libby was indicted for outing a covert CIA double-secret agent.
Nothing is further from the truth.
Even a cursory scrutiny of this tempest in a teapot proves Joe Wilson is a lying media hog with a vendetta against the White House; a lying media hog who outed his own wife in his kiss-and tell book (including pictures) and in the midst of the media-driven non-story, pimped his wife out in glossy Vanity Fair photos, complete with a ragtop Jag.
Good day, Mr. Bond.
Even more humorous, politicians and other mentally-challenged citizens are clamoring about he “record” profits of the oil companies last quarter. Yawn.
There is no “Mr. Exxon” stuffing greenbacks in his pants like Sandy Burger in a secret documents vault. Corporations exist solely to pass along profits, minus taxes and overhead, to its stockholders…. investors of every stripe, employees, retirees, speculators, brokers and me, among others.
Virtually any typical well-rounded stock or mutual fund portfolio contains energy stock, so the horrible record-setting, gouging, obscene profits are being pocketed by the American investor.
So stop bitching, get over it and drive on.
Says he’s “terrified” by global warming and perhaps the boogy man in the closet he just vacated; I'd give a year’s pay to have Churchill come back and kick his ass… with a cigar and a glass of Scotch in hand.
This is why we couldn’t wait to shoot redcoats and get away from such nonsense… it’s a terrible thing when cousins marry.
Poor Fisher DeBerry. The long-time football coach has been reprimanded by diversity police at the Air Force Academy—former birthplace of heroic pilots, astronauts, and Medal of Honor Recipients. Nowadays, the incoming cadets are given classes very useful on the 21st century battlefield… sensitivity to women’s needs, membership in Oprah's Book Club, Kwanzaa and Ramadanadingdong.
Seems DeBerry's team got its ass kicked last weekend because he said the Falcons don’t have enough black players… not enough fast running backs…. In DeBerry’s mind, to anyone with a brain, those are often one and the same.
But the idiots running the Academy were able to twist the comment into a racial slur… not against whities… against black folk, presumably slow, fat, non-athletic black folks.
(Over there on the right a white AF player looks in vain for a black running back.)
Tell you what, General Boombottom.. you pick 25 Chuck dudes and I’ll take 25 black guys…. any major sport; I’ll beat you seven outta 10. I know, the General will choose platform diving and ice hockey…. not major in my book.
Besides, we’re talking football here.
I predict high tea will soon replace the Academy’s football program anyway.
And this sad news just in from AP… Hurricane Wilma will disrupt the Florida kiddies’ trick-or-treat tonight.
You can’t say the traditional Fourth Estate is not bold and courageous with coverage like that.
