All Katrina, All the time......
I'm stunned CBS remembered that Mississippi was hit by Katrina as well.
Possibly Steve Centanni on foxnews sunday!
All Katrina, all the time. Pass.
No way will I watch the media continue with their spins and lies on this story. Once was quite enough.
One would think the other shows would try to get him on too but I doubt they want to take time away from bashing Bush over Katrina.
Katrina all over, this sunday. Will the MSM ever admit their Mis-reporting of the incidents & lessons learned on their part? Just this morning, ShepHez Smith shamed himself again while commenting on the kidnapping incident.
I am tired of all the Katrina-hype & taking off for a bit of DIY-decorating project. Ofcourse, I will post my Media Nuggets in a while and then off for this week.
Move-on's Tom Matzzie is on c-span Washington Journal & it's only 75% Katrina so far>
NOLA... and the Bush/Rove Hurricane-Machine!
The worst of the worst is nbc...they are known by many as the katrina station....if there is a story...they exagerate it, corrupt it and of course blame Bush...if there is no story...they will manufacture one...and then... exagerate it, corrupt it and of course blame Bush...most of the other alphabets take there leads form nbc...except maybe cnn...where they take them from aljezeera!...just think...lebanon good and Israel bad..is just yesterday's news from all the anit-american anti-semitic new stations...only the 1 year anniversary of the katrina catastrophe in the "chocolcate city" is news!!!!
Tom Matzzie speaks like an idiot, in the few minutes that I have been listening to him.
Steve: Is race an issue in the Tennessee senatorial race?
TM: I have not been followint the races too closely, but race has become an issue in Virginia.
Steve: But Harold Ford is African-American...
You don't REALLY believe that Katrina hit Mississippi do you? Don't you know that the Cheney/Bush/Rumsfeld/Halliburton hurricane machine (patent pending) directed Katrina to only strike New Orleans.
Amazing how a storm that large could only concentrate it's destructive power on just New Orleans and leave the surrounding area completely undamaged. /s
I can't possibly talk all day about Katrina so I dug up a few other things we might want to get into.
Let the games begin!
He is the only move-on person I've ever seen & reminds me of a pre diet Jerry Nadler.

Not long ago Christopher Hitchens was a member of a panel being interviewed by HBO's Bill Maher(what Ann Coulter ever saw in him I haven't a clue). Another panel member was former womanizer and rat election loser Max Cleland (Rat,GA.) who spends his miserable hours these days trying to help John Murtha from being "swiftboated".
Anyway the show begins and rapidly turns into a Bush bashing fest with the audience chiming in as well. After enduring several "F" words and other slurs from the audience, at 8:30 into the eleven minute video provided on the malcontent blog, Chris Hitchens turns to the audience and gives the single finger salute. Priceless!! Not only does he do it once but a couple of minutes later salutes them again! Message to rat audience:"don't mess with Hitchens."
This guy is fearless and Maher seemed to realize that he and the pathetic panel had met their match.
This is must see video and you can find it at.
Hey, those guys are GOOD. Evil, wicked but good!
Now that's a sight that's hard to imagine.
Of course, Phsstpok's preview thread let us know in advance. It's still amazing to watch the DBM try to get away with their blatant bias and propaganda.
"Y'all do your Katrina stories, this weekend I'm going to do a little light reading from a FACTUAL news source!"
Hitchens doesn't seem to be the type who will be intimidated by that kind of hostile format.
I can only watch for a bit. Much cooking to do. I will, however, listen when I can for one single person to tell some truths. Who knows, it may happen.
Equally difficult to take, though I am very grateful that Steve and Olaf are free, will be the touting of the heroism and importance of "journalists" and the kindness and generosity of the "Palistinian people".
Good morning AB and rodguy! Thanks for the post and efforts, as usual.
I'm lurking today for awhile. Probably won't post but thought I'd say hi and good morning.
If you're talking about Chris Hitchens, Ann was probably attracted to his brilliant mind.
If you're talking about Bill Maher, Ann was probably attracted to his lack of brain matter.
Nagin says he will evac EVERYONE out of the city if Ernesto comes close to N.O.
36 hours required for mandatory order.
[Hey, Nagyy, do you have the bus drivers 'detained' somewhere? They might already be fleeing the city, Nagyy.]
Nagin says they will use buses, trains, everything to get people out of the city.
[Will Timmy show Brousseau (sp) the Crier video? Hey Timmy, if you 'lost' your copy, I've got one on disk. hehehee]
The media has spent millions to blame the President for all that went wrong in New Orleans, and then we have Nagin..............oh, I love it!
Mayor Nagin, it's 9/11, not 911.
First Timmy gives Nagin the opportunity to backtrack on his remarks about the hole in the ground in New York. Now he can move on to how badly the President is doing. Nagin wants the money to come directly to New Orleans and not go through the State.
I am always amazed at the people who refer to that day as 911. If I am not mistaken I believe I heard Colin Powell use that as well.
Congrats ConservativeMan55! You now have officially become US Journalist. [They 're calling freelance photograpers journalists, not?]. Now, I am out finally.
BlankO dithtered and people died. That IS the bottom line with regard to Katrina.
The media may gleefully think that all this publicity is going to harm the President but I believe it means that Jindal is going to be governor of Lousiana. BlankO will be voted OUT of office.
I have never heard Charlie Rangel get it right, not once.
But then Rangel never gets anything right. He has promised to resign his seat if the dems don't get control of congress.
Captors Release Two FOX News Journalists Kidnapped in Gaza Aug. 14
Nagin: 'for whatever ever reason, there was a slow response' last year.
[Nagin tries to distance himself from the situation. Russert retorts about the Feds being slow to react.]
Russert points out the high crime rate in N.O. Nagin blames the lack of money. Nagin brags that the murder rate has declined from 23 one month down to 10.
Good morning! I read this article in Fortune this past week. It is a great eye-opener on the condition of NO.
Not too impressive, to be sure!!!! I guess the Move-on Millions does not stretch to a decent shirt and jacket to wear on TV.
The left is celebrating Katrina as the occassion to bash Bush. I can't wait for this new Hurricane that's developing and heading for the Gulf to become the story.
Getting sucked into a vacuum comes to mind....
I'm not sure I can take Biden bad mouthing any success in Iraq. He flies in, spends a few hours there, and thinks he is an expert on the whole Iraqi war.
Hey rodguy! Got an eye on the weather? Thinking about you this morning.
