April 30, 2002—They lie to us. We know they're lying. They know we know. We know they know we know. So what is the problem with the American media? More specifically, what's the problem with The Washington Post?
It's easy to excuse the behavior of most of the media. American newspapers have been reduced to canned astrology columns, Little League scores and restaurant reviews. Television "news" is mostly salacious tales like Monica and Chandra.

In other words, radical left extremists.
Nations, they apparently believe, can only be led by people with The Right Sort of Ideas.
Correction: The Left Sort of Ideas.
The heavy hands that the NY Slimes, Washington Compost and I will throw in the LA Slimes and the other left wing newspapers on the West Coast play in keeping the liberals in power is very interesting.
Like the current Enron to do about nothing. The Slimes and their co pimps are trying to take the problems/guilt of Gray Davis and transfer them to Enron and GW. Even the WSJ has entered into this new blame game.
These left wing/maggot infested Fish wraps are so powerful in setting the debate and controlling the issues, I'm often see the Rat Politicians as the tools of the mediots rather than the mediots as their tools.
These powerful mediots can help to elect no bodies like Carter or Clinton or they can destroy Rats Politicians not up to their standards.
The day that conservative Americans cancel their subscriptions to these Left Wing Fishwraps, their cousins like Newsweak and stop watching their Chronies on NBC,CNN, CBS, ABC, CSPAN, witll be the day that these left wing mediots no longer control American Politics!
I know very well how the Post treats disgruntled readers.
After the Post's ombudsperson wrote a surprisingly shallow editorial justification for the paper's failure to report on the Jesse Dirkhising case, I questioned whether they were approaching so-called "hate crimes" with an appropriate balance.
In response to my questions and comments, which were phrased in due courtesy, I got a screed accusing me of being "a racist homophobe; no different from David Duke."
The Post does not suffer criticism lightly...
They've been trying to get her for a number of years, including Queen Hitlary herself.
In actuality, there were a number of Post people that were basically on loan to the Clinton White House, starting with editor William Hamilton (remember his wife, Jane Mayer Hamilton, and her smear piece on Linda Tripp?) and some of his minions. I'll dig out the name of the little WP troll that Hamilton used to do the bidding of his masters in the Clinton White House in a little while and post it up.
You should send this into MWO, and see what sort of response you get.
Judicial Watch Press Release
03/22/99 Judicial Watch
(Washington, March 22) Virtually every two weeks, David Segal, who does not deny he works closely with Williams & Connolly (the Clintons and, not coincidentally, The Washington Post's lawyers) publishes a defamatory column entitled, "The Klayman Chronicles," an obvious reference to the "Clinton Chronicles." David Segal is part of a group of liberal Clinton-friendly reporters who do the Clintons bidding. Segal has previously published articles on Klayman -- for which he has had to issue several retractions -- under the supervision of Bill Hamilton and Leonard Downie, top editors of The Washington Post. Downie was recently exposed by Linda Tripp, during her deposition to Judicial Watch, as being the source of numerous "heads up" at the White House (i.e., Downie would give Bruce Lindsey advance notice of scandal stories to be published about the Clintons, so the White House would have time to react). Bill Hamilton is the husband of Jane Mayer, who has been sued by Judicial Watch's client Dolly Kyle Browning. Mayer, who now wants to be called Jane Hamilton after the adverse publicity over the release of Privacy Act information about Linda Tripp, works for the Clinton friendly New Yorker magazine.
Odd that Utwater doesn't seem to know anything about the Clinton White House plants at the Post, ain't it?
Media Whores Online, a bunch of extremely angry and profane tinfoilers who believe the network news divisions and cable news channels are all part of a giant Republican Party conspiracy. See reference 8 in the top post of this thread.
