Nominations Needed for Free Republic's Culture of Treason Media Awards
Friday, April 28, 2006 | Kristinn

Posted on 04/28/2006 3:01:33 PM PDT by kristinn

Nominations are needed tonight for Free Republic's Culture of Treason Media Awards to be presented tomorrow night outside the White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington, D.C.

The Culture of Treason Media Awards, aka the Benedict Arnolds, are to be awarded to those reporters and news outlets whose reporting has undermined the efforts by the United States to fight and win the war on terror.

Nominations are needed by 11 p.m. tonight. Voting will start shortly after that and will end at 2:30 p.m. Saturday (tomorrow.)

Some nominations to kick things off:

Mark Knoller of CBS News for failing to report Cindy Sheehan's remarks calling foreigners entering Iraq to wage war against Americans and Iraqis "freedom fighters." Knoller's failure to report her views led to Sheehan being dubbed the "Peace Mom" during her Crawford vigil last year, thus giving our enemies foreign and domestic a propaganda coup.

Newsweek, for its publishing of the false story that a Koran was flushed down a toilet by U.S. forces at Guatanamo, causing anti-American hatred to flare around the world and causing numerous deaths.

Dana Priest of the Washington Post, for reporting on a secret detention system for terrorists that U.S. allies allegedly allowed on their territory. DCI Porter Goss testified that report caused much harm to our national security.

James Risen and Eric Lichtblau of the New York Times, for their reporting on a secret NSA eavesdropping program designed to prevent terror attacks.

Please post you nominations with source links if possible. I didn't because I'm short on time, but these are commonly known to most of us.

The whole gang who first published the Valerie Plame story and who continue to milk it today. That may not be the most egregious story, but it desrves an honorable mention, at least.

I nominate Graydon Carter, editor of Vanity Fair magazine and severe Bush Derangement Syndrome sufferer, James Woolcott, and Michael Wolff for their slanted and biased attacks on the decisions taken by the Bush administration during the war on terror, while never mentioning the errors and lack of action against terrorists of other administrations and their various cabinet departments and agencies. For example, the magazine has run puff pieces on those liars Joe Wilson and Richard Clarke.

Can we have public hangings? Or at least public stocks??? Doesn't seem like these nominees will receive the proper 'recognition' of their efforts otherwise.

NBC's David Gregory for his hissy-fit at Scott McClellan regarding Vice President Cheney's shooting accident. That was insufferable [as is anything else he's ever reported, I'd say], and the hatred that he harbors for President Bush just dripped from his mouth.

CBS 48 hours showed an image of the front page of the Daily Tribune, after they altered the graphic of a murderer who was convicted of killing the paper's sports editor.

The actual newspaper had used an image of the murderer in orange prison garb. 48 hours substituted the image with one of the man dressed up in a suit and tie.

Susan Zirinsky, executive producer of CBS' "48 Hours Mystery" blamed a freelance photographer.

BTW: Chris Matthews deserves some sort of award for letting his kids were T-shirts that depict a communist henchman, Che Gueverra


A column by a rabbi published in the Los Angeles Times falsely asserted Rev. Jerry Falwell claimed lesbian actress Ellen DeGeneres played a role in the 9-11 attacks and Hurricane Katrina because she was the host of the Emmy Awards before both events.

The Times ran a correction explaining the Baptist minister "made no such claim."

TIM RUSSERT...

...for his letting last Sunday's 'Meet the Press' guest Senator TED KENNEDY get away with saying that there were only about 100,000 Vietnamese casualties after the 1975 Fall of a Free Saigon to Communism,

...instead of the over 3,000,000 casualties that actually did occur at the hands of the Communists.

Casualties brought about by a younger Senator TED KENNEDY's fooling Congress into cutting off all our funding for the South Vietnamese Militay to fight for their own Freedom with...

...just as the Communist Soviet Union gave Communist North Vietnam over $6,000,000,000 in Military Aid. Aid that translated into 600 heavy Soviet Tanks and lots of mobile Artillery pieces coming down thru the Ho Chi Minh Trail for a 'Final Solution' in the South.

NOTE: 600 tanks were more tanks than Gen GEORGE S. PATTON needed to win World War II with in Europe..!!!

Shame on TIM RUSSERT, for SHAME.

Ann Scott Tyson of the Washington Post for non-stop drumming about US defeat in Iraq. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A48306-2005Mar18.html

CNN for its endless polls against the battle for freedom: http://edition.cnn.com/2005/US/05/03/iraq.poll/index.html

Helen Thomas for accusing the Bush administration of supporting prisoner torture. http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/opinion/234204_thomas28.html

The New York Times about the "nightmare" of Abu Ghraib. http://www.nytimes.com/2004/05/03/opinion/03MON1.html

Dick Turban for calling American soldiers "Nazis."

John Kerry for saying American soldiers "terrorize" Iraqis and violate their customs.

The New York Communist Times for revealing the existence of the NSA wiretapping program.

The Catholic Church, labor unions, Big Business, and the liberal media for inciting an illegal immigrant invasion.

George W. Bush for refusing to deport any of the 20 million illegal aliens.

George Clooney for his blatantly anti-American movie, "Syriana."

Unfortunately, one could go on forever.

Is this treason? Can treason be ok if it is morally justified? Is it no longer treason?

1) The Benton area of Northeastern Pennsylvania is very conservative. During the Civil War they sympathized with the South, and received the name "Fishing Creek Confederacy." Some of them actually went and fought for the confederacy. One young person told me about his great grandfather's diary. The ancestor was a teenager who joined the confederate army and committed homosexual acts. After that point, they stopped reading the diary. Was this treason?

2) Were some southerners were executed as traitors? Were the southern confederates treasonous?

3) "George W. Bush for refusing to deport any of the 20 million illegal aliens." Really?

4) The British considered the American Founding Fatehrs treasonous to the oaths they swore to the crown.

5) Thomas Paine supported the French Revolution. Were the French Revolutionaries traitors?

6) If French Intelligence has information on Saddam's Iraq (or another country) and gives it to US intelligence without permission because he knows it is necessary for the US army's success, is it treason?

7) If a citizen of a democratic Latin American country gives US intelligence secrets and there are hostile relations between the countries, is it treason?

Thank you.
