Opinion Editorials.com ^ | July 17, 2005 | R.V.Tucker

Posted on 07/17/2005 9:44:38 PM PDT by icecold

Lie To Me, Please!

R.V.Tucker

Are you one of those people who prefer being lied to rather than come face to face with ‘truth?’ Do you avoid news about violent crime against women and children? Do you cringe at the brutality of serial killers? In the Eastern Province of Van in Turkey (BBC news) Turkish shepherds watched as sheep jumped off a cliff, one at a time; if the 400 that died hadn’t become a cushion for the remaining 1,100 an entire village would have lost everything. As liberals and conservatives we call each other ‘sheeple’ and ‘kool-aid drinkers’ and its true, too many on both sides either believe they are always told the truth or don’t really want to know what the truth is. Truth can be very demanding; it forces us to venture outside the perimeters of that comfort zone we work so hard to build around ourselves. Nowadays the truth is just as illusive as a ‘lightening bug’ is to an excited puppy..... http://www.opinioneditorials.com/freedomwriters/rr.v.tucker_20050717.html

In the "good old days', the Left would get away with this smear. Thanks be to god, the "good old days" are gone. Now the Left has to stand up with their arguments only, and this has them frightened to apoplexy (as well it should).

Could minor Ambassador Joe Wilson himself have been the source in blowing his own Wife's "cover" (even if she had not been a covert CIA agent at the time of the alleged "leaks")?

It is distinctly possible, (though it may be unlikely that Joe Wilson himself directly was NY Times Judith Miller's source), since Joe Wilson himself evidently routinely bragged openly to strangers about her CIA employment, prior to such "cover" being "blown" in the press.

Here's an example of Joe's apparently routine and open bragging about Valerie being a "CIA agent," which became known directly to me over a year ago:

He certainly bragged about it per a famous and highly reliable source's (named below) account of his own face-to-face encounter with Amb. Joe Wilson prior to Valerie Plame's "outing" as a CIA agent/employee.

Based upon a personal conversation (we were in a small group eating; it was NOT an "off the record") I had with eminent historian Victor Davis Hanson (we were at a luncheon table together during a trip to Europe), it appeared entirely possible that Joe Wilson himself was the (or one source, if not the original one) possible source in revealing his own wife's status as a CIA agent or employee.

Victor Davis Hanson (Wilson presumably knew Victor Davis Hanson wrote regularly for NRO (National Review Online), had done OpEds for the Wall street Journal, and other publications, and had his own Website with a widespread following) said he (VDH) & Joe Wilson were both in the same "Green Room" before a televised debate-discussion on Iraq, etc. and Joe first warned the TV make-up person not to get powder on his $14,000 Rolex watch, then he bragged to Victor about several things (possessions and trips to Aspen, etc.), like his expensive car (I think it was a Mercedes), and then bragged about his beautiful ("hot") wife who, Joe Wilson said (braggingly) was a CIA operative.

I asked Victor Davis Hanson Why he didn't write up this account.(?) He replied that Joe Wilson would probably simply deny it, since only he (VDH) & Joe Wilson were in the Green Room together before the broadcast.

However, it is now easy to surmise that Joe Wilson is a crass, materialistic, self-promoting, vain, egotistical, bragaddocio-opportunist, so this account is perfectly consistent with Valerie Plame's TWO photo shoots in Vanity Fair.

If he is isnt, then Vandenheuvel is enough to cause him to change or at the least give up sex.

Time magazine's Matthew Cooper married longtime Clinton adviser Mandy Grunwald in November 1997. Hillary Clinton even threw Grunwald a baby shower at the White House in July 1998. At the time Cooper was covering presidential politics for Newsweek.

I liked this line:

"We hear every day about ‘separation of church and state;’ how about ‘separation of political bias and journalism’"

The MSN is NOT mainstream!

Let's call it "Adware Journalism"

The NYT and their sick companions are fortresses of liberal bias, attaching themselves to news stories with a killer mission, like an unwanted virus on your computer, or an adware file.

Their hidden bias reeks once identified!

Journalistic bias should be identified so the reader is made aware that a partisan hack is penning a partisan hack story.

Adware journalism is slowing America as we know it, to an overloaded halt. Just look for example, how the courts are being used to promote the homosexual agenda, and the secular materialist pov.

Doing a little digging, I found this gem:

Do you remember Bob Packwood, the randy Senator from Oregon? As the Senate Ethics Committee was preparing to do their job regarding the sexual harassment charges against him -- which is a polite way of saying they were getting ready to bury those charges and sweep the issue under the rug until after the next election -- an ad appeared on the Federal Page of The Washington Post.

This was a quarter page ad. It ran once. It ran in only one newspaper in America. It was placed by Mandy Grunwald, who is a political consultant, she mostly works for Democrats and she mostly does television. The principal text of her message was: 'If your boss stuck his tongue in your mouth, would he keep his job? Only in the United States Senate.'*

She placed this one ad. She got tons, I mean tons of earned media. It was the top news story every half hour on CNN for 24 hours. That evening it was, if not the lead, it was a top news story on every evening news program in America. Grunwald was on Night Line that night with Ted Koppel. She was on every talk show in America within a week. Every time she went on, they showed the ad and then asked her to talk about it.

Interestingly, the entire ad was just text, no graphics. That was somewhat surprising to us when it came in because we got an order for an ad from Mandy Grunwald who was noted for the television she creates. With her, wow, we could just imagine what kind of visuals she was going to have about Bob Packwood's sexual harassment charges. It turns out that the lack of a picture works. My wife is a psychiatrist, so I'll use a technical term. What you had was a kind of a Rorschach test. The viewer sees what he wants and can read into that a great many things. Your mind fills in the blanks. What does your boss look like? 'Picture your boss here' is what this ad says.

* not just there, apparently

Journalists on Clinton White House Payroll?

Ever since commentator Armstrong Williams admitted he took $280,000 to promote the Bush administration's No Child Left Behind policy, reporters have been pretending that they're "shocked, shocked!" that any journalist would compromise his objectivity so blatantly.

The latest target is marriage expert Maggie Gallagher, who on Wednesday found herself in the crosshairs of Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz. Kurtz was questioning fees she collected for research performed for the Health and Human Services Administration.


Apparently Mr. Kurtz and the rest of the media ethics posse slept through the 1990s, when a number of reporters with much higher profiles than Williams and Gallagher supplemented their incomes with checks from the Clinton White House.

CBS News in particular seemed to have no qualms about some fairly blatant conflicts of interest, having Rita Braver and Linda Douglas cover the White House even though they both had financial relationships with the Clinton administration.

Braver's husband, Robert Barnett, who was the Clintons' Whitewater lawyer when Braver was assigned to the White House beat in late 1992, reportedly recused himself from his role as first-family attorney.

But in July 1993, Barnett was still up to his eyeballs in the Whitewater scandal, traveling to the White House after Vince Foster's death to collect papers investigators later said had been removed surreptitiously from Foster's office.

Barnett continued working for the Clintons in another capacity, as book agent, successfully negotiating $20 million worth of book deals for Bill and Hillary – beginning with Mrs. Clinton's 1998 screed, "Dear Socks, Dear Buddy" and continuing through Mr. Clinton's "My Life" last year.

Unless Barnett kept his Clinton paychecks isolated from the household budget, Ms. Braver likely benefited from the White House jackpot more than Williams and Gallagher put together – times 10!

If Ms. Braver ever mentioned her financial relationship to the White House during her news broadcasts, we missed it.

Braver is far from the only high-profile media personality whose spouse was on the Clinton payroll.

Time magazine's Matthew Cooper married longtime Clinton adviser Mandy Grunwald in November 1997. Hillary Clinton even threw Grunwald a baby shower at the White House in July 1998. At the time Cooper was covering presidential politics for Newsweek.

CNN's Christiane Amanpour married Clinton State Department spokesman Jamie Rubin in August 1998. Though Rubin presumably shared his administration paycheck with his new bride, the financial link was never an issue for the Armstrong Williams posse.

Sometime the cash flowed in the opposite direction.

As Byron York reported in 1998, CBS newswoman Linda Douglass [now with ABC] and her husband, an influential public interest lawyer named John Phillips, socialized often with Whitewater scandal figure Webster Hubbell and his wife, Suzy.

Within weeks of Hubbell's 1994 resignation from the Justice Department, said York, "Phillips put together a deal by which a California non-profit group paid Hubbell $45,000 to write a series of articles on the idea of public service.

"Later, Phillips and Douglass picked up much of the tab when they and the Hubbells flew to Greece for a ten-day vacation cruising the Aegean Sea. They stayed in touch after Hubbell pleaded guilty – and even after Hubbell went to prison."

Given examples like these, it would seem that the media ethics police have a lot of catching up to do before continuing the hunt for journalists on the Bush administration payroll.

Katherine Kersten Commentary

Star Tribune, February 11, 1998

...Gross Moral Turpitude.


snip


Since the Hill/Thomas hearings, feminists have exercised this role with relish. They forced the Secretary of the Navy to resign over Tailhook, and called loudly for scalps at Aberdeen. They deep-sixed Republican Senator Bob Packwood over sexual harassment allegations. (Regarding Packwood, Clinton advisor Mandy Grunwald wrote an ad for the "Washington Post" demanding, "If your boss stuck his tongue in your mouth, would he keep his job? Only in the U.S. Senate." "When I read [the accusations]," she explained, "I got so angry that I just wrote up the ad without anyone asking me to. ... I just got outraged.")

And yet -- as we know -- feminist crusaders are silent about Bill Clinton. Instead of outrage, we get Solon-like counsel against "rushing to judgment."

In September 1993, just days after a remarkably unctuous interview with Hillary Rodham Clinton, Dan Rather gave a speech complaining that reporters have learned a new commercial formula: "Do powder puff, not probing interviews. Stay away from controversial subjects. Kiss ass, move with the mass and for heaven and ratings' sake don't make anybody mad — certainly not anybody you're covering, and especially not the Mayor, the Governor, the Senator, the President or the Vice-President or anybody in a position of power. Make nice, not news." That is exactly Rather's formula with Gary Condit. He'd rather make nice than make news.

Rather's show wasn't always this distracted when members of Congress were the targets of sex-scandal stories. CBS's promos in June of 1995 made the case that Sen. Bob Packwood should not be allowed to serve:

Announcer: "If Senator Bob Packwood really did what all those women say he did, it probably would have cost him his job long ago in corporate America. So why not in Washington?" Clinton adviser Mandy Grunwald: "You not only keep your job, you become the most powerful chairman of the most powerful committee in the United States Senate." Announcer: "Is Packwood too powerful to punish? A touchy subject on Eye on America, tomorrow on the CBS Evening News."

Dan Rather didn't use his strictest standard of evidence before pushing Packwood toward the door — notice the "if Packwood did what they said" disclaimer. CBS no doubt felt proud that they were striking a blow for women, sending a message to sex-addled solons that there would be watchdogs on their tail. But that was then and this is now.

The Gang of Four Is Back

Feb. 15, 1993
DURING THE CAMPAIGN, THEY WERE AT THE HEART OF WHAT was known as the War Room, the pressurized chamber in Little Rock famed for formulating rapid political parries and thrusts: James Carville, the raging Cajun strategist; his partner, Paul Begala; media maven Mandy Grunwald; and pollster Stanley Greenberg. When they failed to follow Clinton to the White House, their laser-sharp populist instincts were soon missed. Now Clinton has called them back, though just how much he relies on them remains a question. In room 160 of the Executive Office Building, aides have re-created the War Room. Around a giant table with a dozen or so phones and six television sets (as well as around the West Wing), the four spend time with top Administration aides, helping plot strategy. As one of the quartet explains it, "Room 160 is an organizing force."


******


Cooper, who has worked for all three newsweeklies, is a soft-spoken politics junkie and a dead-on impressionist who has worked the comedy-club circuit. He is married to Democratic consultant Mandy Grunwald, whose father, former Time Inc. boss Henry Grunwald, died in February.

Matt Cooper is married to Mandy Grunwald, and Mandy Grunwald is one of these high ranking Democratic Party operatives, and she currently is on Hillary's staff.

'Is Packwood too powerful to punish.' Sheesh, he was just a fricken senator, people. He put his pants on one leg at a time, just like Sen. Clinton does today.

So, um. What's Mandy been doing between 1995 and 2005? I see she married Matt Cooper in 1997.

I worked at a trade assn in D.C. in the early-mid 90's which rented a floor to the PR firm that had Slick as a client (and Mandy as a...partner?). As I recall, the gossip about her had something to do with her father pulling strings.
