Skip to comments."Meet The Press" Or Is It Meet The Misinformed?

While plying through a typical Sunday night routine, finishing the evening with a liberal dose of "Meet The Press" from my trusty DVR, I found myself amazed at a graphic display that seemed "slightly off" in its accuracy--to put it mildly.
David "die you nutty Birther" Gregory was expounding on US foreign policy with some info-chick from the Obama administration (Amb. Rice) about the brewing Islamic Caliphate in the Mideast. As the two were discussing the various nations' Democratic "birthing pains," a graphic was flashed up on the screen about the nation of Bahrain.
Bahrain is an island nation which is about three times the size of Washington, DC at 665 square miles. It contains a US Naval base that is home to the Fifth Fleet, which was part of the focus of Gregory's interview with the Obama info-chick. As the two were discussing foreign policy, I was quite struck that the dear lady had little if any facial expressions at all, by the way. It was as if she had been universally Botoxed and then forced to sit through a dizzying number of Obama's State of The Union speeches for days on end, then force-fed a flatulence-inducing meal of black beans and rice with red cabbage, just prior to the interview, in order to get her rather stony-while-strained facial expressions just exactly right for the anti-Birther man.
At any rate, Gregory was trying to induce a mild-spate of panic, this time by saying that the US Naval base might be kicked off the Island. Right. Then, dutifully flashed up on the screen was the graphic in question as seen in the above picture. According to "Meet The Press" little, tiny Bahrain has a population of 1.2 Billion people...I thought, Huh??

Wow. That island is in danger of tipping over with so many people on it.
Utter stupidity and gross ignorance.
Sounds like where ‘The Mark of Gideon’ must’ve been filmed.
“Meet the Liars”.
It’s generally referred to as: “Meet the Depressed”.
Apparently someone in the graphic dept doesn’t know the difference between a million and a billion...according to wikipedia there is 1.2 million people :
To be honest, I wish all the Moslems did live in Bahrain, or at least would spend the same weekend there. We could pull out and wipe them all off the face of the Earth with one shot. Thanks Barry Secrest.
reminds me of Nancy (above link)
