A Brief Message To The Mainstream Media About The War On Terror (Updated)Topics: Follies of the Mainstream Media
In light of the MSM's latest "leaked" report (which could only be based upon some secret Democratice operative within the government's classified programs - leaking the info to the MSM) on how America is tracking funds for terrorists and using so-called "privacy" issues to attack Americas efforts to track and fight terrorism, the time has come to put aside your private collective anti-U.S., anti-Bush administration prejudices, and start thinking more about the security and "privacy" of our national secrets.(We could include here the lack of reporting on terrorism issues, such as exemplified by the NYT putting the Swift story on page one, but placing the Miami terrorism arrests on page A-10)
You are in fact aiding the terrorists, both homegrown Muslim terrorists and foreign Muslim terrorists; you are not protecting Americans.
The majority of Americans are sick and tired of your liberal, progressive, socialist, agenda; we are tired of your Soros-funded progressivism, and supporting the liberal Democrat's agenda instead of the interests of the United States of America - the nation that has given you the freedoms of which you claim to support but in fact do not - instead, using them to support the terrorists that want to kill us. We are not impressed with what you perceive to be as your collective academic and intellectual elitism.
It's high time that you, the MSM, start supporting America, instead of a liberal agenda. You are acting as traitors to the security interests of American citizens.
Thus ends my "brief" nessage to the mainstream media. Some will read of it, none will "get" it, because they believe themselves superior to the rest of us, their journalistic pseudo-intelligentsia elitism blinds them from the realities of the real world.
Update: Riehl World View has "Fighting Back":
With the Internet, email and additional sophisticated modes of communication, it's much easier than it ever was to talk back to big media today. The NY Times and the LA Times, both obviously opponents to the Iraq War and the greater war on terror, have once again decided to put our National Security at risk for headlines in their ever-decreasingly circulated rags.RWV also posts targets for action (Please be very polite, but firm):
We don't have to quietly take this. Most likely, we can't expect the Administration to do much about it. It would risk a political calamity, were they to act. But perhaps with enough strong public support - one can hope. It's time to start pushing back on elements of the MSM so obviously and irresponsibly out of control.
