"Fighting the world wide web of wicked wrong doers."

Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

News Media Meltdown Continues - Now It's the Newspaper Guild & NBC

The Newspaper Guild is a group which represents 35,000 journalists. It's President, Linda Foley, mouthed off recently that U.S. soldiers are deliberately killing journalists:

"Journalists, by the way, are not just being targeted verbally or ... ah, or ... ah, politically. They are also being targeted for real, um ... in places like Iraq. What outrages me as a representative of journalists is that there is not more outrage about the number, and the brutality, and the cavalier nature of the U.S. military toward the killing of journalists in Iraq. They target and kill journalists ... uh, from other countries, particularly Arab countries like Al -, like Arab news services like Al-Jazeera, for example. They actually target them and blow up their studios with impunity."

Where is her proof? Where is the documentation? Professional standards? Ha! All the cow can do is rant with unbelieveably outrageous & unsubstantiated claims. She's a real credit to her profession & she helps feed into the terrorist's & radical Muslim's agenda with her wild claims.

In the same manner, NBC's "Today" show added fuel to that fire when they were discussing the Newsweak magazine flap over its phony Koran desecration story. Correspondent Richard Engel thus spoke:

"There's one rumor spreading today in local newspapers. It's been on the local television and it was also broadcast on the Al-Jazeera (a source you can trust, wink, wink...ed)television network. It's that U.S. Marines, while raiding a mosque in Ramadi, kicked a Quran and then took it and spray painted in black paint a cross right on top of the Quran."

Engel spoke of another rumor: "It said that during a search of a woman's bag, U.S. soldiers with a team of dogs were sniffing through her bag. She (female terrorist suspect) had a Quran in her bag. The dog pulled the Muslim holy book out of the bag with its mouth and the soldiers started laughing. [She said] she was raped every night by six American soldiers."

Not having learned from the Newsweak debacle about stirring up Muslim passions with unsubstantiated stories, Engel fed right into the anti-American crowd by further spreading the rumors of U.S. military crimes against Islam & thus risking further damage to U.S. policy & reputation.

What is wrong with the news media? What is wrong with journalists? They call themselves "professionals" (although to be a journalist requires no certifications or even an 8th grade education). However, as is sadly seen day to day, journalists & news outlets continue with their rumor mongering & anonymous sources. They do not let facts get in the way of a story, especially if the story throws a zinger at the Bush Administration or current U.S. foreign policy. This is true of leftist media from The New York Times on down. Editorial standards have been replaced with gossip rather than facts & substantiation. Journalists have been reduced to partisan hack gossips. They are now out-of-control elites with an agenda to push who think their printers ink doesn't stink.
