Rather, Jordan, Moyer, Krugman & The MSM Tell The Lies That Liars Tell
We all know about Dan Rather and his Rathergate debacle with the Bush National Guard story. Well just like Rather, there have been several other blind and bias stories put forth by the MSM in the days since Rathergate.
The two that I think most closely parallel Rathergate aside from Krugman's every day offerings, are Eason Jordan of CNN and Bill Moyers of PBS and an Op-Ed writer these days. Both put forth ideas and stories that are equally outrageous and politically bias as the Rathergate piece.
Jordan who is the Executive Vice President & Chief News Executive of CNN, told a group at the Davos panel which included US Senators that "journalist in Iraqi have been targeted by the US military". That's the Executive Vice President of a major Cable News organization making that moon-bat statement. It's beyond explainable and clearly crosses the threshold into insanity.
What has happen since his comment was made at the February 7th conference, nothing really in the MSM not really a peep. The Blogs are leading this investigations, surprise, just like Rathergate. I think it is insane that a person of Jordan's position can make a statement like this and its not all over every media source. Now that he has been exposed and called on it by the Blog Nation, Jordan is backstroking faster than Mark Spitz. He is emailing as fast as he can to say that the record does not reflect what he really meant to say, but no one has seen him since the statement. Huh..........
On the Moyer front, dear old brother Bill, wrote an Op-Ed piece that criticized people of Christian belief who believe in the second coming of Christ. He basically calls them idiots and scary idiots in power and controlling our country. Then to drive home his theory he quotes President Regan's former Secretary of Interior James Watt's reported statements per Moyer, in a hearing before Congress. Moyer writes that Watt told the US Congress that protecting natural resources was unimportant in light of the imminent return of Jesus Christ. "After the last tree is felled, Christ will come back".
Turns out that Mr. Moyer takes Dan Rather like liberties in his journalism ( term used very lightly), which I know will not surprise most reasonable people. Powerline http://powerlineblog.com/ has a great story where Mr. Watt contacted them to set the record straight and expose the ultra-liberal agenda of Moyer.
The short is that Mr. Watt provided the official transcripts of the hearing to Powerline and here is what it shows when Congressman Weaver (D. Ore) asked Mr. Watt whether he wanted to see the sustained yield policies continued:
Secretary Watt: Absolutely. That is the delicate balance the Secretary of the Interior must have, to be steward for the natural resources for this generation as well as future generations.
I do not know how many future generations we can count on before the Lord returns, whatever it is we have to manage with a skill to leave the resources needed for future generations.
Quite different than the Moyer quote and totally wrong on Mr. Moyer's account. A case just like Rather, Jordan, and Krugman where the ultra-liberal MSM uses fabricated documents, fabricated stories, fabricated statistics and historicals, and fabricated quotes to put their political agendas ahead of truthful news. They are scared however and rightfully so because an increasing number of Americans know their agenda these days. They have been exposed as DNC mouth pieces and Americans don't like that in their news.
Criminal in a journalistic sense I think but the reality of the MSM today. Organizations like CNN, CBS, PBS, NYT, and the Post will continue to feed this type of disinformation to their paying customers until forced to revert and tell the truth. The day is coming, the day is around the corner.........................
