(Vanity) Now Tell Me Again Who Is Affiliated With NewsWeek Magazine?

Posted on 05/16/2005 5:10:40 PM PDT by onyx eyes

NBC and MSNBC that's who. And tonight, my jaw dropped open (again...) watching ol Chris matthews try to explain this one away. This one, which is going to take more American lives.

On MSNBC right on KO's Countdown he and Craig Crawford are saying Newsweek was setup by the White House.

That's what I thought, too. I wonder why MSNBC never mentions them as a "co-partner" in their network.

Again the MSM is admitting they were beaten up by their designated "world's dumbest leader".

If there was a setup then it was by the Pentagon. I wouldn't be surprised--Rope-A-Doping the left is like shooting fish in a barrel. The Pentagon official that looked over the story didn't deny anything, but more importantly he didn't confirm anything. He's got ample cover--"I never confirmed the story", and Newsweak is left swinging in the breeze. If I had the opportunity to hang the MSM by their own rope I'd take it in a heartbeat.

Did you watch Hardball, before KO's show?

I knew that Chrissy would be heartbroken that Newsweek wouldn retract the story...but, what I did see made me furious.
First, he mentioned at the first of the show that NBC and Newsweek have an "intenet" agreement or somesuch...half-assed disclaimer.

Anyway, he had all libs of course, Robin Wright of NYT, some lib ex-CIA buy, I think, and this youngish looking guy (don't remember his name), that was supposed to be some kind of terrorism expert...

Well, Chrissy was clucking his tongue about the hoopla the article has caused and during some point in the conversatation that terrosism expert said something like, "using religious persecution never was a good thing to do, and as you can tell FROM THIS INCIDENT, using religious persecution has deadly consequences." That was a paraphrase, but it was enough for me---

The whole point is that this was a made up story, and Chris has this guy on talking about how wrong it is for the military to USE this religious persecution---Chris didn't correct him...

Instead, he turned to Robin Wright and asked her what she thought, and she gave a long explanation that back in 2003 there WAS a report that this happened and people HAD known, and blah, blah, blah---IOW, the whole show was a CYA for Newsweek!

Can't they be sued for libel or slander or something because of this remark?  It's amazing that in this country a radio personality like Howard Stern can be sued for saying "shit", yet these "journalists" can say any outrageous lies they want and get away with it.

The FCC should start revoking licenses of places that are caught in traitorous lies.

I think the people at Newsweek responsible for this ought to be on a plane right now to go tell the mob/rioters/protestors in Afghanistan that they're the ones who screwed up and they're really, really sorry. I know it won't happen, but it would be nice if it did.

What I am doing is:

(2) Writing a letter to every advertiser and letting them know that I and alot of people like me are NOT going to buy any of their product they advertiser until they remove themselves from Newsweek.

They are owned by WaPost. They are featured by MSNBC/NBC news web sites.

It is easy to see how they all run the same hit pieces on conservatives.

They all work together to push a liberal agenda.

Don't forget this trick that BS-NBC/Newsspeak played on the American people.

Have they done this with ANY other poll results?

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4205947

Follow the "Editor's Note: This week, the online version of the Newsweek poll received an unusually high rate of response, with the clear majority of participants casting uniform votes. For these reasons, we believe the poll is being intentionally manipulated. In addition, we received an e-mail alert suggesting that the campaign is being coordinated by at least one special-interest group." link:

Un-F'ing believable to watch the MSM try and spin this - (just as they did the FAKE CBS memo's).

It is mind boggling.....but the fact is we are winning....more and more American's are starting to see completely through the MSM (and the MSM continues to whistle by the grave yard and act like it isn't happening....but it is!!).

Robin Wright of NYT

Unless she's moved in the last week or so, Robin Wright is with the Washington Post - the owners of Newsweek. She came to the WAPO from the LA Slimes in the past year. She fits right in with the WAPO bunch - Dana Priest, Dana Milbank, Ceci Connelly, etc., etc.. Liberal pukes all.

Maybe someone here can enlighten me. It appears obvious that whether or not Newsweek's folks got the story RIGHT (viz., one or more interrogator "dissing" the Koran), Newsweek--once allied or American deaths were linked to that line in the story--would have little choice about whether or not to retract. No retraction, more deaths (not that a simple retraction is going to halt the violence on the same issue, but NW could conveniently wash its hands after the retraction). And tho it's clear that some "journalists" don't mind bloody hands, allowing the violence to continue or spread based on their "report" would, one would think, expose them to enormous pressure from readers and other publishers.

For argument's sake, tho, suppose the allegation was false. Why did DOD fail to notice the line and challenge Newsweek IMMEDIATELY through other channels instead of waiting for the deaths to mount?

Is it possible that no one (DOD, various media, including NW) here believed that the mere mention of "desecration" of a book could cause such havoc? And having learned that it DID, why were "we" unanimous in blaming NW rather than the rioters?

If the Pentagon spokesman had any comment like, "That's a damn lie," or "Your source is full of (bleep)," then Newsweak would have cried censorship or strongarming by the Pentagon.

In any event, I'm not surprised that many left/libs are blaming it on the Bush administration somehow.

Excellent. Truth is and always should be the bottom line.
I wrote for an MSM paper for 12 years. At the time they were just beginning the shift from straight journalism of covering a story and presenting what actually happened instead of re-inveintg it. Today I am ashamed to have ever written for them.

Whats this "rather than" crap? We blame them both, of course. The rioters for killing people. The commies for deliberately lying to urge them on, because they are upset that we might be winning. Remove your head from its present location. If Newsweek had carefully vetted facts they might plead "journalism". They don't. They were engaged in agitprop pure and simple, publishing lies because they liked their probable effect, no other reason. We see their souls in an instant in this, anyone with a shred of patriotism who isn't blind. Nobody runs off and libels US soldiers on grounds this flimsy, unless they hate them and want them to lose. The only thing unusual in this, is that their usual shield of high minded pretense can be seen for the sham it always is. They do this every day. They've been screaming the like for years now. And here we just see the bare motive, devoid of any justification by mere fact.

You're right on every count here; but I'm not talking about *us*. I'm talking about the absence of a single line from DOD or the media in this country placing even PARTIAL blame on the Muslim agitators.

But it's worse than that: I'm also talking about Newsweek's craven apology. It didn't apologize for starting riots that resulted in lost lives (which in fact it did); it apologized for misreporting, getting the facts wrong--as if their sole responsibility were getting the words right, as if yelling "fire" in a crowded theatre were protected! And no one, including Defense, is stooping to blame Newsweek OR the Muslims for the greater crime. I guess I'm just fed up with all the gracious-winner diplomacy we've been extending.
