NEWS BLACKOUT ON CIVIL WAR?


I'm assuming there must be some sort of Bush-imposed news blackout on the all-out civil war that has been raging in Iraq.
War Hero Murtha, the mainstream media, Arianna, and the rest of gang up on Doomsday Hill have assured us that there is a terrible civil war tearing Iraq apart and that we should be making preparations to depart with all due haste.

Yet, as I flip through the news channels all I hear is the usual stuff. "Iran tests secret missile, 20 killed in Pakistan clashes, , tornadoes in midwest U.S. kill 30, bus plunges off cliff in Chile killing 18 tourists, Eminem divorcing again....

But not a peep about Iraq in the news today. Doesn't that seem unusal considering that the entire country is in the midst of all-out civil war?

Arianna Huffington, writing in her blog today said that she and many Republicans believe "our mission [in Iraq] has failed" and that the most important thing in determining what we do next is "the acknowledgement of defeat."

I'll bet there is a big party at Arianna's 7 million dollar Brentwood mansion tonight to celebrate the 'good news'. They'll have those little zucchini finger sandwiches, a nice bottle of Cakebread Chardonay and kiss each other on both cheeks.

How about you folks out there in the real world? Do you think we need an 'acknowledgement of defeat'? Or do you think that's exactly what the Dems will be acknowledging (again) in November?

right, consider this:

Conservatives often promote the myth that the U.S. media are liberal. This myth serves several purposes: it raises public skepticism about liberal news stories, hides conservative bias when it appears, and goads the media to the right. GOP strategist William Kristol also reveals another reason: "I admit it: the liberal media were never that powerful, and the whole thing was often used as an excuse by conservatives for conservative failures."
In unguarded moments, however, even far-right figures like Pat Buchanan come clean: "The truth is, I've gotten fairer, more comprehensive coverage of my ideas than I ever imagined I would receive." He further conceded: "I've gotten balanced coverage and broad coverage -- all we could have asked… For heaven sakes, we kid about the liberal media, but every Republican on earth does that."

What Is true is the media is owned by a small group of Corporations, mostly conservative, but always concerned solely with the bottom line, the media is as conservative as the government wants it to be, but individual journalists tend to be liberal, and you cant always shut them up.

Nobody wants to bring up the 2 car bombings today, or they'll be labeled as always giving bad news about iraq. Besides there's so much more interesting going on here, like 2 homeland security officials arrested for sexual deviance, the one a deputy director for soliciting a 13 year old girl online, and the other a former Child Abuse director arrested for exposing himself to a minor. Lets not forget that these folks all got their jobs by being friends and acquaintences of Bush or his college buddies, that whole Jeff Gannon thing is making more sense now isnt it?

Do we need acknowledgement of defeat in Iraq? I suppose that depends on what you mean by defeat, We certainly arent making any friends over there despite rumsfeld's assurances, we havent managed to accomplish much of anything aside from the capture of Saddam, a man who couldnt leave his country. All this for 3+ years of constant loss of human life, and I dont think our guys are worth anymore than the iraqi's probably less since they were willing to attack a soveriegn nation on intelligence anyone paying attention could tell you was pure crap. and dont bother saying clinton thought so too, clinton didnt take us to war. Nor did anyone else, Bush did, Bush's administration, who completely ignored all the warnings given by the clinton administration, which they had to... you remember, they were trying to convince us that the clintons destroyed the white house when they left, remmber that dont you? the millions of dollars in damage the Bush admin had to fix first, that they were taking pictures of for later prosecution? they lied from day one going into the white house, they ignored the evidence handed to them, then they blamed everything on everybody else.

Sounds a lot like the war on Christians, complete and utter crap, Christians are in charge of almost everything, yet its everybody elses fault. I think this is pathetic and completely ridiculous. Only an idiot would believe this nonesense.

The emails I have received from U.S. military personel returning from Iraq tell me the media here is full of shit. And they are more than a little pissed about it.

When a comment has been 'deleted by author' it usually means 'oops, I sure looked stupid posting that'.
