Unmitigated Bias

 

If anybody has any doubt about where the interest of the major media of America lies they need only to grab a few recent back issues of USA Today and many of the other major city newspapers and see what is most prominent on the front page.

 

The admittedly regrettable action of a few U.S. soldiers at Abu

Ghraib prison in Iraq has gotten more major media attention in the past few weeks than any subject since the beginning of the war.

 

More ink and more air time that the cutting of Daniel Pearl?s throat.

 

More ink and more airtime than the murder of some U.S. citizens who were hung from a bridge and set on fire.

 

More ink and more airtime than the decapitation of United States citizen Nick Berg.

 

Will somebody please tell me why Jennings, Rather and crew are more concerned about the welfare of Iraqi religious zealots who are bent on the destruction of everything we stand for than they are about the welfare of innocent American citizens?

 

The fairy tale that the decapitation of Nick Berg was done in retaliation for the events at Abu Ghraib prison just doesn?t hold water. What motivated these pigs to cut Daniel Pearl?s throat or mutilate and burn the bodies of the other Americans?

 

These atrocities took place before the events at Abu Ghraib were ever brought to light.

 

The media just seems bent on doing everything they can to make America look bad. It doesn?t make any difference what else is going on. If it doesn?t degrade America I guess in their book it?s not fit to print or broadcast.

 

It?s not that I think the unfortunate events at Abu Ghraib prison

should not be aired and those responsible identified and punished. It?s just that enough is enough. Weeks and weeks of daily coverage showing the same pictures over and over, repeating the same words again and again is ridiculous.

 

The American public was well informed weeks ago and it?s time to move on. The situation is well in hand, is being dealt with and all the media is accomplishing by whipping this dead horse is giving encouragement to an enemy who needs no further motivation.

 

Is the beheading of Nick Berg important to you people? Or doesn?t it matter? Why are you giving a gang of bloodthirsty murderers a free pass while you rub America?s nose in the fact that a few soldiers did some very foolish things?

 

I can?t figure out why you people in the media feel that it is your mission to paint the land that gives you your freedom in such a bad light.

 

Shame on you.

 

Pray for our troops.

 

What do you think?

 

God Bless America

IMO, Charlie always hits the nail on the head. He's a very smart individual. And while we're on the note of the media, why do I seem not to be able to find a story in my newspaper yet about the sarin and mustard gas that were found in Iraq? :mischief2

 

That's garbage. No excuse for it, plain and simple. Whether you believe the find is significant or not, it should be in the damn paper. :mad :

What an idiot. (promptly puts old CD best of cd in the garbage)

 

Seriously, so we're supposed to just bow down and pray at the feet of the White House podium when we feel our country is doing something wrong? Bulls***. This is why Charlie Daniels is stupid:

 

If we listened to him we would not have rebelled against the English because, darnit, they put us here in the first place. God Bless Britain!

 

Please. What allows us to be free is the fact that we can criticize the government. And this government needs it. The fact that this idiot can "write" his opinion is proof that anyone who has an opinion should be allowed to put it out there. Even if, as in Charlie's case, it sucks.

 

Sometimes, it's the people who criticize the government most who are the most patriotic. How dare Charlie Daniels tell us to shut up and take the government's medicine and not listen to any opinions but his and the White House's.

 

And this doesn't hold water because Nick Berg got as much press as the people who were torturing soldiers in Abu Ghraib. Stupid... Plain and simple.

It sounds like Charlie's opinion is made up well ahead of time. Jesus is good. Foreigners are bad. God bless the Bush White House. Liberals should be hunted.

 

 

How has he hit any nail on the head? Because he expressed the same opinion as you? He expresses his opinion based on a percieved bias. Im sure good ol Charlie hasnt sat there and read the different news media sources all day. Sounds like perfect SPIN to me.

 

Did Charlie Daniels complain about the media when they ceased covering war protests after the war had started? No. Does Charlie Daniels care when Dennis Miller basically says he is giving the president a free pass on his show, all but admiting it will be a Bush foreign policy mouthpiece? No. Is Charlie Daniels for fair media? Absolutley not. Is Charlie Daniels for media that staunchly supports Bush? Yes.

What an idiot.

FYI :Concensus online debate rules usually specify the first one to resort to ad homenim attacks is declared the loser. Logic class this isn't.

 

I'm showing my own "unmitigated bias" by posting my opinion (what messageboards are for) on Charlie Daniels and his stance. If I really cared what he thought I would answer thoughtfully without attacking his character. But, screw him. Oh, darn I "lost" an internet argument. Like anyone actually wins those.

 

FYI: I don't care.

Awesome stuff as usual baw.

 

 

What Charlie doesn't realize is that the propaganda war in this country between left and right is nearly equal, because otherwise a more clear majority would be present. Did you think people thought for themselves? The war for propaganda wins elections, not independent thinking people who gather information from both sides. Its the people each side holds captive through propoganda who decide elections. And I possibly just set a record for saying the word propoganda in a paragrapgh. Propoganda. :)

That's what IMO means... in my opinion. :cool

 

And Brian, this letter is criticizing the media rather than those who criticize the Bush administration. Take time to collect your thoughts before you rant about who's the idiot. :thumbup

Reread and still seems that way to me.

 

Say, before you throw away that CDB CD... would you mind sending it to me? :cool

Indeed - it is however lack of class You just broke your own unwritten internet rule. Hence you lost according to your own rule. You lost.
