…About that alleged “Liberal Press”

In January 2008, Hamas TV came out with an ad that spoke poorly about George W Bush, saying he was the anti-christ.

The right wingers went insane and huffed: “How dare they?!” The right wing nutjobs over at Little Green Footballs said:

Hamas TV continues churning out sick, weird, genocidal propaganda; here’s their creative effort to welcome George W. Bush to the Middle East, featuring a comic book villain voice ranting in broken English for some reason. We’ve been hearing from the mainstream media about the poor children of Gaza who can’t afford batteries for their hearing aids, but nobody wonders where Hamas is getting the money to produce this kind of evil incitement—or asks why they aren’t buying children’s hearing aids instead.

And meanwhile, they crab about our alleged “liberal media”. So when CNN runs this…

…Things are just fine with them.

They’re all hypocrites. The media, the right wingers, the entire lot. Hypocrites.

On the Little Green Footballs site, there are some four hundred comments that have been left. Recalling that the original post was on January 14, 2008 – Comment #136 says:

MSM would love nothing better than an aging, cranky McCain go against a young, vibrant Obama. That is the stuff Landslides are made of.

Excellent instincts, really crappy prediction.

Update:

Media Matters is running a story about CNN who’s just announced their newest line-up of “Top Political Reporters”. These people will get tons of face-time on camera and the entire CNN staff will regard what these people say as being “gold”. Who are these new “Journalistic Prodigies”?

I’m glad you asked:

CNN has added five more top political reporters and commentators to its deep bench of political contributors and analysts.” CNN’s new “top political reporters and commentators” that “span” the “spectrum” include reported McCain adviser Alex Castellanos, former RNC official Tara Walls, Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody (A Pat Robertson patsy!)— who once described a male blogger as Fred Thompson’s “angry girlfriend” — and Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank.

Emphasis’ are all mine.

Sounds like they’re aiming right for the “center” and “unbiased” look! I’m guessing they’ll start with that breaking story in Ohio where Republicans are caught trying tor suppress voter registration and absentee voting under a brand-new law they themselves penned and ran through the courts in the first place!!

h/t Buzzflash for the entire Update.
