CNN Pres: Birther coverage “Legit”, MSNBC Pres: Birthers “Racist”. Okay, so how about Buchanan?

  It’s official. CNN is FOXlite


    On Friday, the Southern Poverty Law Center called on CNN to fire Dobbs for trading in “racist conspiracy theories.” And some of Dobbs’ staff at CNN have told him and network executives that they are uncomfortable with his persistent focus on the story.

    Klein defended Dobbs, saying that the host’s treatment of the so-called “birther” movement has been “legitimate.”

    Does this guy even watch his own network? Or does he just prefer to let Dobbs’s xenophobic McCarthyistic mania masquerade as objective journalism?

    Though Klien has told Dobbs that the birther story is a dead end that has not stopped Dobbs from making it news. In this way, the story is kept alive and made more legit. Journalism FAIL.


     Still, the claims about Mr. Obama’s citizenship persist among a small but vocal group, essentially portraying Mr. Obama as a foreigner who has managed to conceal his origins for nearly five decades.

    “It’s racist,” said Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC. “It’s racist. Just call it for what it is.”

    Does this guy even watch his own network? Or does he just prefer to let Buchanan’s xenophobic George Wallace-esque mania masquerade as objective journalism?

    So CNN’s President stands behind Dobbs becuase of his years of experience despite the fact that he is a whackjob who fears a One World Government New World Order and the illegal immigrants are the problem behind everything that is wrong with America, and MSNBC’s President says that the brithers are racist, which is pretty much obvious, but he fails to mention that he employs an out right racist himself.

    You can’t have it both ways guys. CNN can NOT pretend to be for reals journalists and stand behind Lou Dobbs’s nightly Alex Jones/David Icke impersonation with a staright face while calling themselves a legitamate News reporters, and at the same time MSNBC can’t pretend that “birthers” are racists while ignoring the Ku Klux Konservative Buchanan and the bile he spews on a daily basis on their own airwaves.

    For all of his righteous indignation I can not recall Keith Olberman ever making Pat Buchanan the Worst Person In The World, and there is a good reason for it. No one wants to bite the hand that feeds them, even if they are feeding you bullshit.

    So when does the bullshit end if no one ever says anything about it?

    And saying something about it isn’t good enough when you ignore it in your own house.

    Our free press is not free, not as long as it is enslaved by a for profit Corporatist system.

    The fact is that the birther movement is a racist movement, a Conspiracy Theory advanced by those who refuse to recognize a black man is the legitimate President. It is being advanced for political reasons. Pure and simple.

    But the racist on the other network is just as bad as the one on your own.

Fox News – Media arm of the GOP

CNN – FoxNews lite and Alex Jones wannnabees

MSNBC – who will never hold themselves accounatble though they deem to do so for others.

    With News channels like these, who needs Propaganda or Conspiracy Theories?

  1. lets face it folks, teh toobz is a real as it gets

  2. None of it is news.  It is propaganda.  They are telling you how to think based upon the Nazi propaganda models.  Tell a lie often enough people follow.

    A “birther” is automatically a “racist” just as anybody who is a critic of the Zionist government of Israel is an anti-semite, Palestinian genocide aside of course.

    To me all of it is crap, bunch of spoiled brat five year old dumbed down and or Clockwork Oranged into their prescribed little fiefdoms of market studied demographics and woefully unaware of the global situations which already invalidate most of the US Constitution.

    Lou Dobbs is light years away from Alex Jones and critics of Alex are surfacing so there is division amongst the hatters so to speak.  But really is the far left any better?  Honestly is Obama going to shove an electronic behavioral modification rectal probe up my ass?  I find many of the left positions and recent legislation Orwellian beyond galactic proportions.  If you want another take other than Alex go to projectcamelot.org for Bill Deagle and then Brian Oleary and his South American retreat.

    Left vs right illusions of government offer zero solutions and are getting in the way of progress.

    The decline of empires is entertaining when one has the Apocalyptic horse.  I can’t say I will be able to snort fire out of my nostrils after my meditating in the wilderness, but hey that would be really cool.

    Most people know what Mockingbird was, but just in case for any new guys…

    Operation Mockingbird was a secret Central Intelligence Agency campaign to influence domestic and foreign media beginning in the 1950s.

    The activities, extent and even the existence of the CIA project remain in dispute: the operation was first called Mockingbird in Deborah Davis’ 1979 book, Katharine the Great: Katharine Graham and her Washington Post Empire. But Davis’ book, alleging that the media had been recruited (and infiltrated) by the CIA for propaganda purposes, was itself controversial and has since been shown to have had a number of erroneous assertions.[1] More evidence of Mockingbird’s existence emerged in the 2007 memoir American Spy: My Secret History in the CIA, Watergate and Beyond, by convicted Watergate “plumber” E. Howard Hunt and The Mighty Wurlitzer: How the CIA Played America by Hugh Wilford (2008)[2].

    With 9/11 truthers sending multiple samples of WTC dust from ground zero off to labs for analysis and finding a form of high tech, high explosive thermite in every single sample of dust they get tested, CIA need some better disinfo to discredit 9/11 truthers pronto.

    CIA needs to put a new really ridiculous conspiracy in the front of people’s minds to compare 9/11 truthers to. There hasn’t really been a whole lot of really stupid ones lately, so they came up with their own. This whole birther mess is a CIA constuct to use against 9/11 truthers.
