CNN – “the most trusted name in news” is little more than an advertising slogan designed to garner market share against rival fabricators at Fox, CBS, NBC and ABC, and their respective cable affiliates.It’s not a statement of fact. It’s just a statement. Lou Dobbs is engaged in something wholly different from making mere pronouncements. He is engaged in connecting dots predicated on false information. In a Bushian way, he is making connections with the intent of generating a reaction from a population that is easily duped – the American people.
I know politicians and pundits (even the righter of this New York Times article) often celebrate the intelligence of the American public, but that has to stop. Honestly, enough is enough. Americans have been duped into supporting the majority of the nation’s war which began under false pretenses – and led to support domestic engagements under equally dubious foundations. Perhaps the schools are to blame for this recurring nightmare. Perhaps it’s the media. The New York Daily News has seen fit to put Lindsay Lohan on the FRONT PAGE for two consecutive days.
These are days in which the United States announced a set of weak sanctions of the Sudanese government for committing acts of genocide in Darfur. These are days in which the Iranian government has accused the United States of conducting espionage within its sovereign borders. There is something worth reporting openly and honestly, but the MSM refuses to play that game…and so it is with Lou Dobbs and his leprosy fiasco.
While Mexicans and other foreigners were allegedly losing their skin, Lou was really losing his mind. See below and the link.
