Skip to comments.PR Machine Behind Cindy Sheehan? ABC7 Looks At The Financing Of 'Camp Casey'
Posted on 08/25/2005 7:41:37 PM PDT by FairOpinion
With the President back at his Crawford ranch, the anti-war protest right outside his ranch is getting a lot more media attention. ABC7 looks at who is financing the operation and who's providing on-the-ground support.
The camp at Crawford is full of Cindy Sheehan supporters, people from all walks of life. But off to the side are a small group of professionals, skilled in politics and public relations who are marketing her message.
Cindy Sheehan kneels before a cross with her son's name on it, touches his picture, wipes her tears. It's an outpouring of emotion that is part of a scheduled news event organized daily for the television radio and print reporters who crowd in to capture a mother's grief.

The convicted criminal Soros?
Whazzup widdat? Are they covering their bets in case Jihad Cindy Mark II* implodes?
*our very own Cynthia McKinney is Jihad Cindy Mark I
Kind of crushes the legitimacy(if it had any) when some one is footing the bill.
This is a local affiliate. The affiliates of all the MSM news outlets throughout Texas and Oklahoma are far more conservative and will tell the truth on things like this versus the national media. Some of the affiliates are locally owned and don't toe the national line.
Will you please remind me of what, exactly, Soros has been conficted of?
Newsmax and the Washington Times are going to predict that 10,000 pro-America supporters are going to confront this rabble band led by Sindy Al-Sheehan-Bin-Pharting.
I can't wait.
Wasn't it something to do with stocks or something? I forget what country.
part of a marketing business..
So all this is about as real as Tony and Tina's Wedding???
Both the LA Times and the NY Times reported that TrueMajority paid the airfare of Iraq widow Melanie House to speak in Boise. She was recruited to do so by MoveOn.
AP omitted any mention of the groups, allowing readers to think she showed up all on her own.
What are they doing with all those crosses do they plan a burning.
That wasn't real?
They're PAYING them to go protest? Sheesh.
You must remember... the she-hadist also travelled with Military Moms with a Mission (Kerry financed group, up till the election). She did videos with them through RealVoices.org early Sept. 2004 and spoke with them before that.
"George Soros, the US financier and philanthropist, was today convicted of insider trading by a Parisian court and ordered to pay a 2.2 million euro (£1.4 million) fine. The 72-year-old billionaire went on trial in Paris last month, accused of using privileged information to speculate on the share price of Société Générale, the French banking giant, during a failed takeover bid in 1988."

She is willfully passing on lies and twisted, sick tales to advance her anti-American, anti-Bush, anti-military agenda...and doing it with a skillfully manufactured cover of grieving that is turned on and off with the point of a media camera. It is sickening and disgusting.
I have many friends over in Iraq as contractors and military personnel. They tell me that most Iraqis do welcome them and that in most areas of the country significant progress is neing made. I will believe THEM, thank you very much Ms. Sheehan. You see, they volunteered to be there and are doing the hard work of freeing and stabilizing Iraq, as are now millions of Iraqis themselves.
Their agenda is freedom, truth, service to others, and help. Yours is pure negativity, antifreedom (as evidenced by your calling thugs and murderes, "freedom fighters").
As to her comment today about Bin Laden being an "alleged" terrorist. More lies. He has indicated himself through the videos AL Quida has put out to the world, that it was "his" operation that brought 911 upon us. Calling him the "alleged" terrorist responsible is like calling Hitler the "alleged" leader of the Third Reich.
"Wasn't it something to do with stocks or something? I forget what country."
I believe it was currency speculation. South American country I believe.
Yeah, ABC has a big black eye given to them by the Russians, and they KNOW that they are consider waaaaaay liberal...so they print this, thinking they will be "fair and balanced"... lol
But, I am glad to have the information...I knew about all the groups already, except the DIRECT tie-in to Howard Dean's group...oh, shoot, I just remembered that Joe Trippi that WAS with Howie, until he quit in a huff, is with this group...
Hmmmm maybe he and Howie kissed and made up?

OMG that's the best I've seen. Dying laffin here!!!!!!
They could call this "Casey's Wake" and sell tickets.
(Sorry for my cynicism)
Gosh...you are right, I just posted remarks about the main ABC News ....
so, I could say never mind...but I won't...they still stand, because hopefully the Disney owned company won't come down on the local that is putting out this info.
She wasn't galvanized by her son's death, as she claims. She was a hard left agitator all along, she's just using him as a handy publicity tool.
7 was also the first to use the word "backlash". Whodathunk a conservative ABC affiliate...
I can recall seeing a Greyhound bus loading in the Costco parking lot for an Anti-War protest in Washington put on by A.N.S.W.E.R. It is a different group, but many left groups share the technique. I guess the left has access to more people with time on their hands to do protests if they can import them from out of state in large numbers.
They are using the same methods they used in the Vietnam War protests. The difference now is that because of the internet and alterative news outlets the general population is no longer dependent on MSM and the usual suspects for their information.
Too bad someone can't film her to catch her turning on and off for the media camera's and then post that all over the net.
I'm still waiting for the eeeeeeevil Karl Rove to pay me for all my activism since '99 ;-)
"Will you please remind me of what, exactly, Soros has been conficted of? "
Disgusting and despicable, along with many other unprintable and more expressive words, and the same can be applied to the media who are involved in this debacle.
ABC, while still pretty liberal, is the only company even trying to get market share back.
Of course they are. Only an idiot would be caught on film with her. The American people can see right through her. The polls all tell Cindy to just go home. They're sick of seeing her fake cry. Enough already.
In the O'Reilly poll, 72% said they have no respect for what she was trying to do.
Well, as Ann Coulter said on Hannity and Colmes tonight...if this had been back during the end of the Vietnam War protests (like these people want it to be), there would be 100,000 coming out for a anti-war protest, not just a couple of dozen...
She said that the left keep finding polls and telling America that over 60% feel the same way as they do...but they can only rustle up a few dozen protestors...with all of the money they have...and they have had 3 weeks to galvanize their "troops"....but, Ann said, "Where are they?"
Spouse (liberal) has on her usual CNN news. A news item profiled picture of this tragic woman and said
She is going to follow GWB to Washington
It is getting worse
"They're PAYING them to go protest? Sheesh."
Why not? They pay them to go vote.

Did you notice that this is a San Francisco affliate? That, to me, is the stunner here!
