French Intifada Over?

Couldn't sleep last night and wanted to know what was up in France. I assumed that after 13 nights of violence, the whole situation did not completely "go away..."And I noticed that I couldn't find much to read on it. Nothing at all in the US Press. How funny. We read about Katrina for weeks after the storm, including all those pieces by the press in which they wrote about what a great job they did, covering that storm. We even read a few - but only a few -pieces about everything they got … [Read more...]

Someone in the press finally admits it!

Okay, it's the French press, but we can see everyday that the same mindset exists in the US Press, as well:Mr Dassier said his own channel, which is owned by the private broadcaster TF1, recently decided not to show footage of burning cars."Politics in France is heading to the right and I don't want rightwing politicians back in second, or even first place because we showed burning cars on television," Mr Dassier told an audience of broadcasters at the News Xchange conference in Amsterdam … [Read more...]

The “daughters” of France’s burn victim

Recall two days ago I posted a letter from frequent emailer Marianne, in France, in which - among other things - she wrote:2) Some nights ago, “youths” threw Molotov cocktails in a bus. People scrambled outside. A poor handicapped woman was sprayed with petrol by the very same thoughtful “youths” and was saved by the bus chauffeur. The poor lady was badly burned.FR3 channel showed the lady’s 2 daughters, Yaël and Anastasie; they were European and wore no Islamic scarf. They expressed their gr … [Read more...]

Has the NY Times addressed this yet?

Just asking.I mean, I have seen lots of bloggers, beginning with Michelle (who has a nice exchange of letters between the craven Times and a soldier) writing about how the NY Times Dowdified the letters of a dead soldier, essentially changing the whole thesis of the letter, in order to serve their own agenda.I was just wondering if anyone knew whether the Times had actually addressed any of this publicly? Do you think they will?I mean, I haven't seen the MSM yet address the Lies of … [Read more...]

The NY Times Calling for Coup or Impeachment?

This editorial strikes me as being right up there with Harry Reid's insistance, after Fitzgerald didn't give the Dems what they wanted, (Rove's head on a platter) that Bush give it to them anyway!"We don't want him to be president for three more years! The ignoramuses in the red states might have elected him, but we're not going to stop the tantrum until he's gone!"The NY Times, in this editorial, sounds remarkably like a frustrated kid in a snit. Like George Will, last month, writing … [Read more...]

Fake, fake, fake

I wonder if we'll see his fakeness on page one, above the fold now that it is clear he is a fake.Ron Harris asks, Why did the press swallow Massey's stories?.Editors at some papers look back at the Massey articles and are surprised that they ran them without examining whether the claims were true or without ever asking the Marine Corps about them."I'm looking at the story and going, 'Why, why would we have run this without getting another side of the story?'" said Lois Wilson, managing … [Read more...]

No WMD because “Clinton got them all!” UPDATED

Ohhhhhh.I just got an email from someone, who, after calling me some ugly names, informed me that the reason we found no WMD in 2003 is because Clinton BOMBED THEM AND GOT THEM ALL back in 1998, and Bush knew it. Amazing. Clinton "GOT THEM ALL..." - apparently he knew exactly where they were and "got them all" in just a few days bombing.Which doesn't quite explain why he and the Democrats were still talking about them in 1999, and 2000? And 2001, and so on?Either the WMD were there, or … [Read more...]
