LGF: The Media Are The EnemyTopics: Follies of the Mainstream Media
Salon's Walter Shapiro does his best to justify publishing the Abu Ghraib rerun photos, but fails to explain how his courageous defense of the "world's right to know" fits with Salon's craven refusal to publish the Danish Mohammed cartoons. (Hat tip - Little Green Footballs)
Michelle Malkin's "Clown Journalism 101" helps to place the matter in the proper perspective: "The bad joke of American journalism is made all the more odious by the plight of endangered defenders of press freedom abroad. Last week, Abdel Halim Akram Sabra, editor of the independent weekly Al-Hurriya, journalist Yahya Al Aabed and editor of the Yemen Observer Mohammed Al Asaadi, were arrested for publishing the Mohammed Cartoons -- something most of our right-to-know poseurs in the U.S. media still refuse to do."
As we've all learned to expect, American media clowns like Walter Shapiro and Slate have no problem beating up on their own country at every opportunity, and are all too happy to run to press with anything that fits in with their liberal agenda - while ignoring stories supportive of the War on Terror and the defense of America and the West against radical Islam and Islamic terrorism.
