CNN EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Hezbollah (propoganda piece)
19-July-2006 | Erik Latranyi

Posted on 07/18/2006 7:18:10 PM PDT by Erik Latranyi

CNN is broadcasting an interview with Hezbollah's press officer.

Of course, Hezbollah claims that Israel is hitting civilian targets.

CNN is proudly broadcasting the bad guy's point of view for everyone to see.

PS This is a poor press secretary. He whines like a schoolgirl!

Van Sustren has an islamderthal apologist on too. He's just dodging questions at this point.

Why don't we put GPS on these correspondents and send in the JDAMs during filming?

Presenting Hezbollah's point of view is a great way of exposing them for what they are. The bias bleeds through in CNN's use of CNN International reporters and Christianne Amanpour.

Just saw the Hezzie puff piece. Hardly convincing. He declares three times how they won't surrender and they will teach Israel a lesson "again" as he puts it.

You can just see the obtuseness of these asses.

I couldn't stop muttering a slautation to the TV at this guy. You can guess how I addressed him. Effin Hezzie piece of crap.

CNN is the pro-islamic terrorist voice in America. Was back during the time we bombed Serbia as well.

Heard this one on the radio today. Heads up. Hezbollah may have taken the place of Princess Diana...

While we're on the topic of Hezbollah spokesmen, here's today's exchange between press secretary Tony Snow and Helen Thomas:

Q(HT) The United States is not that helpless. It could have stopped the bombardment of Lebanon. We have that much control with the Israelis.

MR. SNOW: I don't think so, Helen.

Q We have gone for collective punishment against all of Lebanon and Palestine.

MR. SNOW: What's interesting, Helen --

Q And this is what's happening, and that's the perception of the United States.

MR. SNOW: Well, thank you for the Hezbollah view.

The MSM has humanized Hezbollah more this past week than they have humanized our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq over the last 4 years. Sick and disgusting. I will never forget this.

Snow commented that Helen Thomas was "hectoring."

WTG!

Helen has always been anti-Israel. At least the Hezbollah spokesperson is easier to look at or listen to...slimey, lying, murderous dog that he obviously is.

I love it...the creep says "we'll teach them a lesson." I hope and pray Israel teaches them a lesson. Hezbollah...and the governments that support it...deserve what they get.

That's amazing technology that the Israeli's employ. No matter what they use; missles, artillery or guns. It always manages to hit women and children and they're always innocent civilians.

ABC World Spews Tonight with Pot Bellied Charles Gibson had a great US hit piece. 'Italy and Greece already got all their citizens out, but the U.S. is just now starting.' The Anti-US MSM is apparently attempting to capitalize on the terrible geography skills that graduates of public schools possess.

It made both CNN and The Hezi's look like clowns.

Their cell phones probably have a GPS built-in to it.

I think a little ELW tinkering should give a "close enough for gov't work" lat & long.

Gee, I wonder how CNN knew where to find the Hezbollah press officer.

Or vice versa as the case may be.

CNN is kicking Foxs' butt when it comes to actually breaking the news. They have been scooping them for several years and Fox needs to do something about it.

I am one of the original Fox News converts (I went and got a dish because time/warner blocked it out) because they gave us a fair shot, but they have got to get on the ball when it comes to breaking news.

saw the piece. Perhaps a repeat.
The Hezzie did everything but have a seizure. He bordered on some hysteria.
And ending the interview due a threat of incoming air, hmm, wonder if CNN has AWACS capability, or is that just contrived, method-school drama?
Must say, the Hezzie spokesman that was shaking and jabbing his fingers, best learn some manners with those digits...
before in the wrong crowd, he looses them..
Don't point them thangs...they might go off...his breath probably was something short of heaven too...

IIRC, Helen is Lebanese.

I saw it. Tony was cool and condescending and Helen was whining hysterically. Showed her for what she is.
