On a sudden hush in the media
July 4, 2006
Is it my imagination, or is there a sudden hush in the shrieking media barrage today? Was it only yesterday that the NYT and WaPo were roaring and thundering, month after month, at President Bush and the GOP- to surprisingly little effect? Have we run out of phony scandals yet?
Where is the Bush = Hitler crowd?
To be sure, the Kossacks are still fussing in a corner of the web. And any moment now the heavy artillery of the Left may resume lobbing shell after exploding shell at the White House, the neocons, the Army, Navy and Marine Corps, not to mention Big Oil, Big Business and Big Fatty Food. It's all they know.
My intuition hints at something else. Has an email has gone out from Hillary's campaign? Has somebody run a panic poll? Has Murtha been told to shut it for now?
Maybe the Democrats just got it- that they have now defined themselves to lose the 2006 elections. The Democrat Party stands for open treason in a time of war.
Their house journal- the New York Times- has made it official, by publishing secrets that will surely end up killing US agents, soldiers and allies in the field. The next big terrorist attack will point the finger of blame at our domestic Fifth Column- the media establishment.
Where will the next terrorist hammer fall? Israel London New York City? Wherever it does, the guilty party is now beyond reasonable doubt in the eyes of millions of Americans.
Just to top it off, in a fit of hubris the NYT has published the home addresses of Dick Cheney's and Donald Rumsfeld, complete with a photograph pinpointing a hidden security camera in Rumsfeld's driveway. It is a plain invitation to terrorists and crazies: Go and kill these men. Here is where they live. Just drive a truck bomb past this house, or crash a private plane with half a ton of ammonium nitrate. Go ahead. We're pointing the way.
You know the reasons why- we've riled you up, day after day, for six whole years. Now you know where they live.
We are protected by the First Amendment. We are above the law.
This administration's greatest gift is its enemies. The Attorney General could appoint a Special Prosecutor to ferret out the New York Times' spies in the CIA, State, the Pentagon, Congress. The precedent has been set by Plame-Wilson, first stoked by the NYT Editorial Page.
Spies can be sent to jail. Journalists can be jailed for hiding their sources.
My guess is that the Attorney General will never do it.
He doesn't need to.
All the administration needs is a thirty-second television ad in late September.

Zoom in on the front page of the New York Times, with a voice-over saying:
"Would you vote for these people to protect your country?"
You got it!
I think some folks are still in shock over the national referendum on immigration in Utah last week. Along with Tancredo, his PAC, the buchanan's and their PAC, many of the fringers invested a lot of time and effort into pumping up the "referendum"...only to get slapped down pretty solidly.
There are a few around claiming it was only a primary, nothing more. What a difference a week and the voters choice makes.
Doesn't even have to be the just the GOP running those ads.
Conservative 527'2 are going to hammer The Slimes during this November's election s campaign.
My God. That is truly astounding. I am just... amazed. And appalled.
Someone posted an article last week saying that the Dims were starting to move away from Murtha like they have with Cindy Sheehan, in the wake of his recent MTP performance. Even they, it seems, realize just how badly Murtha's jumped the shark.
I'd announce that we would not seek the death penalty for treason for the person who disclosed this critical wartime intelligence secret to the times, if they came forward before we caught them.
And I'd say nothing more about it...
Just think, we've only got a few weeks left before the non-stop deluge of bitching and whining from the media about the President's trip to Crawford starts. Oh goody.
Thanks for the link...that's a pretty good read. I think I'll e-mail it to Congressman Tom Terrific's office.
I really haven't paid any attention to the media today.
But last I checked the main stories were about the failed missile tests from North Korea, Americans' patriotism undampened, and the feud brewing between Kos and Liberal Dems like Lieberman on Conneticutt. If they have lessoned their attacks, it's because they have their own problems taking center stage with that primary and the NYT's. I'm sure it's only temporary..if this author's impression is accurate.
I believe you're correct. I also read that piece and don't know why it took them so long to realize it. There were many here that knew it when he came out with cold blooded killer fiasco.
Jaz, I hope you had a fine day today. Freepmail on the way.
Well Cindy is getting ready for her summer of publicity. I am not sure how the Dems will be able to remove that anchor from around their combined necks.
