From a friend:
Subject: Reporting the news
My niece, Katelyn, stationed at Baluud , Iraq was assigned, with others of her detachment, to be escort/guard/ watcher for Martha Raddatz of ABC News as she covered John McCain's recent trip to Iraq . Katelyn and her Captain stood directly behind Raddatz as she queried GI's walking past. They kept count of the GI's and you should remember these numbers. She asked 60 GI's who they planned to vote for in November. 54 said John McCain, 4 for Obama and 2 for Hillary. Katelyn called home and told her Mom and Dad to watch ABC news the next night because she was standing directly behind Raddatz and maybe they'd see her on TV. Mom and Dad of course, called and emailed all the kinfolk to watch the newscast and maybe see Katelyn. Well, of course, we all watched and what we saw wasn't a glimpse of Katelyn, but got a hell' uva view of skewed news. After a dissertation on McCain's trip and speech, ABC showed 5 GI's being asked by Raddatz how they were going to vote in November; 3 for Obama and 2 for Clinton . No mention of the 54 for McCain.
I learned today that ABC will host a McCain-Obama "Town Hall" in the near future.
The Main-Lining Media is nothing more than a Pravda Clone, preaching the glories of a Socialist government. What they FAIL to realize that, if their dreams come true, they will be hamstrung, then the hand-wringing anf sobbing will begin. I refuse to watch, and refuse to accept this leftist drivel. (and will NOT watch their commercials, advertisers!!!)
Maybe that’s the ticket, call or e-mail the advertisers on the ABCNBCCBSCNNMSNBC cabal and TELL THEM you refuse to patronize their products when they enable this tripe.
To those of us who took part at the Gathering of Eagles in 2007 in Washington DC, we saw firsthand how the media shamelessly distorts things for its own agendas when we watched the news coverage that night that was one-sided and bore little resemblance to the actual events.
I don’t know if this is true, but it would not surprise me one bit.
Just what I would have expected...the big nets are in the tank for Barry.
Another VERY GOOD reason to beat HUSSEIN BARRY
The absentee wotes will not be counted either, again.

Similar to the experience of those of us FReepers who stood outside the Vice President’s residence in 2000 exhorting Gore to “Get out of Cheney’s house!” Footage shown on TV when we had hundreds on our side was deliberately manipulated to make it a appear as though the number on the other side was equal and, in some cases, greater. One of the tricks they used, I noticed, was to put a camera behind only our first line of people to tape the group across the street. Being the polite people we are, of course, we stepped out of the way of cameras and never loudly questioned what they were doing. Scum bags!
Academia programs our youth,the Dems do the damage in legislation and laws and the media manipulates the masses to think left.
For decades, we have welcomed the likes of Cronkite, Tom Brokaw, Brian Williams, Chris Matthews and more recently, Keith Olberman into our homes as if they were close friends. Unfortunately, they did all the talking and we quietly listened to all their propaganda. We just didn’t know what it was.
Just reflect on how Clinton was defended and Dubyah has been destroyed...by propaganda parading as public opinion.
Might want to send the tip to Newsbusters run by Media Research!
OK, FReepers, here’s the latest.
I sent the article to newsbusters, and got a prompt response that they’ve had the story for two months in a slightly different version, but were suspect of the message and didn’t make use of it.
I hate being a chump! That happens, a lot, to me. <;-D
You are no ‘chump’. You just reported what could very well be true in the new Marxist Media Enviornment in which we find ourselves.
It may still be found to be true in the end. You were right to send it along to one of the ‘good guys’!!
Ahh...you were there. Yes, you know.
