CNN says its silence on Iraq ... ( a little late isn't it?)

CNN Admits Honest Reporting Was Impossible, So Why Go To Baghdad?

CNN's Access of Evil
Opinion Journal ^ | April 14, 2003 | Franklin Foer
Reprehensible. Access is more important than principle---or truth in reporting. But wait a minute----didn't CNN do the same thing during the Clinton Administration?
 
 
CNN knew
The Washington Times ^ | Monday April 14 2003 | EDITORIAL
Where to begin? First, as the chief news executive of the only truly worldwide television news network, Jordan was literally the one man in the entire world in a position to "unbottle" those awful truths. Moreover, those awful truths were not only newsworthy, but would have been history-making - had they been reported.
 
 
 
 
I think that most people are missing the real point of all of this. Sure Saddam was a sadistic madman, but at least he wasn't George Bush. It doesn't matter to these people that they were used. They were happy to be used. Their hatred of conservatives, George Bush, and America in general trumps all to this very day.

This astonishing confession doesn't just undermine CNN's claim to be "the most trusted name in news" - it wreaks incalculable damage on all journalists' ability to be trusted by the American people.

The elistism of CNN is incredible. What else aren't they telling us?
 
 
CNN chief stands by Iraq omissions

I bet CNN has the same 'see-no-evil, hear-no-evil' "policy" with Castro's Cuba.

CNN is the propaganda arm of the anti-American Socialist worldwide conspiracy that includes radical Muslims, Communists and Democrats.

Defame, defund, defang the Access of Evil.

The Left cannot be debated, persuaded or convinced.

They can only be vanquished.

I dearly hope the presence of CNN in airports, hotels, other countries, etc, begins to fade a little faster...

The big story NOT mentioned here is that CNN's Brent Sadler proceeded on live TV to make an armed reconnocense of Tikrit in which (if you listen to your VHS tapes carefully) Sadler CLEARLY states that his security (hired gunsel) opened up with an AK-47 on some Iraqis that "looked threatening".

Then, 5 or 8 minutes later. AFTER they fired on these Iraqi people, Sadler (who was driving) ran a road block and was fired on. (What did he expect?).

The key point is CNN Fired first!

Further, the Marines were only an hour behind them, so any captivity CNN might have suffered would have been short lived at worst.

So in the chase for a scoop to save its' failing rateings, CNN engages in combat ahead of the front line.

As far as I know Iraq never hurt any news media (although several were hurt by U.S. fire), and yet CNN finds it necessary go hire armed thugs and shoot their way into and out of Tikrit.

CNN = Collaborators' News Network

Still reporting on that great Cuban health care system while dissidents are imprisoned, tortured and shot just off camera.

Well, I tried to be hopeful!

I was gathering these links when the "C-word" caught my eye and just zoomed in without further thought...

Just about every place I go with a waiting room has CNN on... I think I'll start complaining.

I actually hadn't thought of it that way- thanks for your perspective.

I really appreciate the time that you spend gathering all this information together for us.

I, on the other hand, haven't even managed to make a folder in My Favorites to drag the URLs I've saved about this into. :-)
