Posted on 10/27/2008 5:29:51 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
This is how the Los Angeles Times has chosen to respond to requests to release the Obama-Rashid Khalidi videotape, courtesy of an LGF reader.
To paraphrase: No, were not going to release the video. Go away.

The Times did write about the tape, so Im not sure what you mean aboutsuppressing the video or information from the video. Here is a copy of the report about the video.
Thanks again for writing, Jamie Gold Readers Representative
If that is the case, then release the video that you have of the event and dont merely report it. Why is the Los Angeles Times sitting on a videotape of the 2003 farewell bash in Chicago at which Barack Obama lavished praise on the guest of honor, Rashid Khalidi - former mouthpiece for master terrorist Yasser Arafat?
Thanks for your note back. It sounds as if you dont find mere reporting to be enough, but The Times is not suppressing anything.
Just the opposite the L.A. Times brought the matter to light.
Thanks again for taking the time to write.

A perfect example of the utter arrogance of the media, and the contempt in which they hold their readers. Theyre very aware that video has an immediacy and power that mere words do not; thats why theyre suppressing it.
And its hard to avoid the suspicion that theres more to that video than they reported.
If were bringing change can we start with the LA and NY Times and NBC?
If we rabble-rouse enough we can turn this into a viral thing like with the Youtube Video of Obama being a socialist that the MSM ignored.
Someone needs to create an email about Obama’s speech and the LAtimes refusal to release it to every jewish person they know and ask them to foward it.
Why do they and no one else have this tape?
I’m sending to Drudge. Maybe it will amuse him.
I would think there would be other tapes, but no one has been mentioned, that I know of.
Because GOP operatives are lame brained fools that don’t know how to play hard ball?
I sent two e-mails to the times on Saturday. One about the birth certificate and this. No response to my e-mails.
Reader’s to the LA Times - get lost ... buh-bye ...
The LA Times needs readers (advertiser’s) more than they need the LA Times ...
LA Times are a bunch of liars. They probably have no tape, but they want us to think they do to look more important than they are.
Obama will lose anyway and their “tape” LOL, would be useless.
Any company opposed to higheraxes should withdraw all advertising from any news paper that supports the O.
The “tape” must exist elsewhere too, since someone gave it to the LA Times (it did not sound like it was their own tape taken by their own crew). Maybe we need to track down who was involved with the event, who else could have knowledge of the video etc. OF course, they are all leftist, Islamo-fascist loving Obamanations or they wouldn’t have been involved, but maybe someone will let something slip out or can be pressured, etc.
Why did someone give it to the LA Times? Was it someone associated with the Obama campaign just providing innoculation, so that once the LA Times had written their piece then it could be dismissed as “old news” by the MSM if the issue came up again??
But surely they most have known it could be incendiary, so was it a Hillary-supporter who was trying to undermine Obama to pave the way for Hillary?? Then maybe that person is not a PUMA and is now willing to let Obama slide into the WH — but if we could figure out who it could be then maybe public pressure could be brought to bear.... but there’s too little time.
Maybe public pressure on the OBAMA campaign to call for the release of the tape, increase the appearance of a cover-up, try to force the campaign to call for its release..... after all, if you really have nothing to hide.....
Only danger there (besides that it might not work as Mediascum allow liberal stonewalling) is that if the tape showed nothing significant then it could backfire. But it’s hard to believe that an Obama video of him praising a major PLO spokesman and pro-terrorist apologist could be “nothing” — there’s a good reason the LA Times is covering this up.
I have a feeling the "Freep" is getting so young that bit of humor is wasted...
When I shared this article with my Israeli friend (who’s wife is an American jew herself), they turned from the One
He said verbatim “Well... I’m officially off the Obama bandwagon”
This has legs; trust that
Would like to see Sarah mention this on the stump and give out their phone number.
Does anyone who is the decision maker preventing it from being seen?
