I have a
cousin who returned from Iraq a few months ago, and was TOTALLY
amazed at the news coverage of the war; even from Fox News. He
thought the war was very unfairly represented in the news. He was
angry because the GOOD things were not highlighted along with the
bad, in order for our citizens here to have a more complete view of
the war. He spoke of laughing with the Iraqi children, the soldiers
gathering for prayer, of schools open and people working. He told of
many re-building projects, of sick and frail Iraqi citizens being
treated by qualified doctors, of the locals who would ask for and
get, help from our troops. He told of the many who would come up to
the troops and thank them for what they were doing.
It is my opinion that the media is, in a large way, responsible for
helping to turn the citizens of the US against the war, by always
highlighting the negatives, and none of the positives. If I had my
way, that would border a treasonous act against our nation.
And now, we have Cindy Sheehan, whom the liberal media has taken up
as their latest "cause". I wonder how many of the thousands that
were killed in the Towers by the terrorists would support her if
they could speak to us? Hmmmmmmm?!?!?!?!?
Thank you for your time, and for keeping us informed.

decided you are best source for accurate, timely, truth-filled news
each day. Brent Bozell's columns are must-reads. I was musing last
night (after hearing once again--on local news channels; I avoid
national news other than Fox) that the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (read
BUSH) was to blame for all of New Orlean's woes. My fear is that, of
course, if a lie is repeated enough times, it becomes truth. Which
made me write this:
Game in New Orleans/Louisiana is a classic example of MSM liberal
bias. Can you imagine the torrent of abuse from the MSM had the
federal government not waited for the city/state to request, let
alone offer compliance to their coming in? ABROGATION of STATES
RIGHTS, HEAVY-HANDED ARROGANCE, GESTAPO TACTICS (indeed, all the
abuse they DID NOT heap on Reno/Clinton for the Waco/Ruby Ridge
debacles) would be shouted from every MSM outlet in the country,
time and time again. Conservative/Reublican governments do exhibit
extremes of caution, temerity, and hesitation. But no wonder.
every word, every action, will be scrutinized, torn apart and spun
by their adversaries (yes, I said adversaries. The MSM IS just a
part of the DNC.) The city of New Orleans Mayor, the waffling of the
State of Louisiana's governor (both, REMEMBER, Liberal Democrats)
should bear some of the blame...but the greater portion of blame
should be borne by the MSM. It is their constant carping, their
constant search for "Gotcha, Conservatives!", that shackles and
inhibits conservative governments.
And I do
think, thanks to MRC and the other truth-seekers, out here in the
boondocks of Middle America, we do understand what is going on. I do
not believe Democrats understand that there is an America other than
that in Washington..or New York..or LA.
