Whoops, Democrat media caught with political pants down, Clinton style!

Posted on 10/26/2004 5:22:29 AM PDT by ShelleyAa

Whoops, Democrat media caught with political pants down, Clinton style!

With only a week to go before the election liberal media provides bogus report to Democrat’s delight. More than outrage, American citizens are awakening this morning to an emotion not yet described. Fearfully stated, never during a national election season has such deception and propaganda been purposely perpetrated on American citizens. It is apparent that media sources both large and small, all across the nation decided to take the election’s outcome into their own hands through any means possible. With urgency, they placed an unsubstantiated story into the mix, hope against hope it would make a difference in seeing to the demise of President Bush.

Without waiting for the CBS’s 60 Minute program to break the tale on October 31, New York Times provided bogus story for desperate Democrats. John F. Kerry and former President Clinton pompously strolled onto the stage yesterday, arrogantly informing their supporters that under President Bush’s watch a huge cache of explosives vanished from site in Iraq. The problem, his words were false, the cache had vanished from site before troops arrived. How do we know this? NBC embedded reporters that arrived on the scene with US troops during the war found no cache of explosives as described.

Just when is a lie not a lie? How perfect that Clinton’s appearance and this national lie would arrive on the same day.

Will we allow Democrats and their national media to steal our vote and voice? Please consider this unprecedented fraud a tool of destruction and vote against it with great gusto. The Democrats with support of the media must not be the victor in this game of deceit.

Again I reiterate. Even to level headed thinkers who always go way beyong giving the benefit of the doubt so as to avoid conspiracy theories, it is becomming clear that the news media is corrupt in it's intent to alter the political affairs of this nation. This is no innocent difference of perspective. This is pure corruption in journalism.

I would say that the missing weapons scandal is probably the weakest attack in a while that the media has put forth. Now maybe if they said that Bush really paid Osama bin Laden to steal the weapons to sell to the Afghani 'warlords' so he could remain in hiding until right before election day, then you have yourself a national news story worth putting on primetime.

The embedded reporters was a brilliant move. Now NBC must report the truth. If the same information was provided by a military spokesman, nobody would believe it.

Hopefully, your statement is an accurate analysis. Overseas, the USA media overkill is beginning to be be questioned in East and Southeast Asia. USA Media paints Bush as a religious extremist but the evidence is never presented. Usually abortion is the accompanying topic and Abortion is at least controversial in Buddhist society. Another example is the WOT -- it is clear that the bulk of the Asian opposition ot it is Muslim with the rest either silent or supportive. Finally, Bush just doesn't come accross as being stupid.

That may be true, but MSNBC has been reporting the exposives story all morning without one mention of the fact that they were not there when we invaded.

The mainstream media sees a Democratic Party drowning, going down for the third time, and valiantly dives in to save the party. It then finds itself too going to the bottom in the clutches of delusional desperation.

It was all over NPR this morning too. No surprise there though, NPR might as well be funded by the DNC even though it's our tax dollars paying for them to schill for "them".

Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard
To get her poor doggie a bone
But when she got there, the cupboard was there
And this is clearly due to the lack of intelligent planning
by the Bush administration.

"But tonight, NBCNEWS reported: The 380 tons of powerful conventional explosives were already missing back in April 10, 2003 -- when U.S. troops arrived at the installation south of Baghdad! An NBCNEWS crew embedded with troops moved in to secure the Al-Qaqaa weapons facility on April 10, 2003, one day after the liberation of Iraq."

Doesn't it make you fighting mad to know that, if the NBC crew had not been there to see with their own eyes, not one of the MSM networks would now believe the "military" saying that the weapons were gone before we got there?

I pointed out in another post that this is a classic "Guilty by accusation" stunt pulled by the RATS and their Media lap dogs. The truth is irrelevant, only the accusation matters.

And it's so true Shelly. There have been so many times in the past that the leftist media and leftist politicians have literally run wild with a false accusation when a Republican was involved. Then, when the truth was revealed, things got eerily quiet. The pattern is consistent. An accusation is made, the MSM runs the story intensely, liberal politicians shout and foam at the mouth, and then the truth comes out, and everyone slinks away - until the next time. This is a "next time" story. They will slink away now, until the "next time."

How very true. However, Kerry is going to be allowed at least another day to lie about this bogus story. Propaganda is being placed before us daily - something needs to be done. Is this what Soro's money buys?

Money buys a lot of evil. In the event that Kerry wins, and all holy hell breaks loose in this country and around the world, it is a question that will haunt us both.

Drudge says NBC has repudiated the missing explosives story. Don't expect any correction/retraction from the MSM-it's in a fight for it's life and the CBS phony memo story was only the tip of the iceberg. The MSM will ignore or deny the NBC report, and the Kerry faithful continue flogging the story. Expect more false news before 11/2 that will get maximum exposure and may or may not be shown false by election time. President Bush's re-election is going to have huge social and cultural consequences, even beyond national security and judicial appointments. The MSM will have to clean up its act or become a national joke-even more than it already is.

Thank you--concur completely. As a matter of fact (or education or literary criticism or whatever you want to call it), try reading the Times article for plain old journalistic integrity. It deliberately conceals times, dates, and sources. It's a hit-piece, pure and simple.

What really ticks me off is the fact that even Fox News is running with this story.

One would think that after the revelation of embedded NBC reporters that the weapons were GONE when US troops arrived in Iraq in March/April 2003, FOX NEWS would be leading with that as their top story instead of simply repeating the lies and tripe in the NY Times and AP.

Sometimes Fox has it's head up its butt just like the partisan news outlets.

NBC ran the story last night and CNN also has it, if you want to go their web page. This is fact. The explosives were not there when the troops arrived. Confirmed by NBC embedded news personel. The times of course is ignoring that and running the story again today. I guess they want to really get slapped down. They are just digging a deeper hole for themselves.

ABC News Radio just reported the TRUTH about this "poo poo Qa Qaa" ammo dump. They actually played a clip from an IAEA spokesman extolling that the weapons were missing BEFORE we invaded, and the the US Military could not have secured what did not exist at the time we arrived at the dump.

Here is an interesting side-note to this story. Check out the article by The NY Sun http://www.nysun.com/article/3783

The head of the IAEA is playing politics and is trying to get the Bush Administration out of the way so he can have a third term.

The second point to make is that sKerry is once again showing his hand as to how he will deal with problems.

"Senator Kerry's aides told Reuters recently that they, too, would like to see Mr. ElBaradei replaced, but they would be sensitive to the ruffled feelings in the Arab world and other "political consequences."

sKerry has no spine. He will run the opposite direction when faced with problems.

This is great. We can throw it back on Kerry by pointing out the fact that the reason we didn't go into Iraq sooner was because we were too busy going to the UN to try to pass a "global test."
