CNN: OUTRAGEOUS PROPAGANDA NETWORK


Caption: the longest question ever asked in US TV "journalism" history!

Anybody else notice how THIS IS THE LONGEST QUESTION IN HISTORY OF TELEVISION INTERVIEWS.

Kyra, the Playboy Bunny propagandist:
"IRAN is a tremendous problem in this country, (...) Iranian president came here (...) this is not someone you would want to shake hands with and look in the eye; the bush administration has referred to IRAN as the axis of evil, BUT IT STANDS FIRM THAT IRAN IS FUNNELING WEAPONS AND SUPPORTING AL KAIDA AND SUPPORTING THE INSURGENCY;
(short pause)
WOULD YOU SUPPORT THE WAR IN IRAN?"


WHAT THE FUCK KIND OF JOURNALISM IS THIS? WHY WOULD A US ARMY GENERAL BE INVITED TO A MEETING BETWEEN IRANIAN AND IRAQI POLITICIANS?

Why wouldn't he shake Ahmadinejad's hand and look him in the eye? What, is the Iranian president a medusa, greek mythology creature?

It STANDS FIRM that Iran supplies al Kaida and insurgency in Iraq?
Where does it stand firm - in AIPAC, PNAC and AEI "think tanks", where people masturbate to the thought that American soldiers will die in yet another war for that "small Middle Eastern country" which shall not be named?


Spotted this on Crooks and Liars and had to post a comment on it.

But this deserves a post of its own here.

Bonus Material:
Kyra Phillips is something else entirely.

Off UK's Guardian newspaper.

In an April 16, 2003 Kyra Phillips did an interview with Dr Imad al-Najada, the doctor of Ali Ismail Abbas, a 12-year-old boy who lost 15 relatives and both arms when a US missile hit his home in Baghdad.

This is the comment from Joan Walsh, news editor of the online magazine Salon on said interview:

"CNN hit rock bottom on Wednesday morning, when anchor Kyra Phillips interviewed Ali's doctor in Kuwait, Dr Imad al- Najada explained that, although Ali told reporters he was grateful for his treatment, he also hopes no other 'children in the war will suffer like what he suffered'.

Phillips seemed shocked by Ali's apparent inability to understand we were only trying to help him. 'Doctor, does he understand why this war took place? Has he talked about Operation Iraqi Freedom and the meaning. Does he understand it?'"
What is she, a professional cheerleader for war and human suffering?
We already have one - he is our president.

Looks like we liberated that poor Iraqi kid from having to cut his fingernails or wash his arms.

Just think of that!!!

And we've managed to liberate over one MILLION Iraqi's from the tedious, day to day existence called living.

Surely they must be grateful!!!

Plus, we've managed to liberate several million more Iraqi's from the burden of owning a home, since they were either driven out by the civil war or chased out by hired, terrorist mercenary thugs, on our payroll.

Or, we bombed the home into oblivion, just to show them how much we care!!!

Just think, they no longer have to worry about taking care of their house!!!

And we've managed to liberate ourselves from reality, thanks for the Barbie Bimbos that pose as new anchors on CNN and F**.

Thanks to those pseudo-journalists, we don't have to think about smart bombs, but which mall to shop at!!!!

I've been looking at some of statements Joan Walsh has made over the past few years. I thought Salon.com was a 'liberal' publication...??? I see very few statements by Joan Walsh that are liberal in my opinion, and many that are simply state/party-line propoganda.

For example, discussing "conspiracy theorists" on the Bill Maher show:

Bill Maher: “…a controlled demolition?, wouldn’t they have to of plant a lot of demolitions in the building? Wouldn’t have someone seen that?

Joan Walsh: "...if it was an inside job... look, they can’t get the lights on in Baghdad, they can’t clean up after Katrina, I just don’t believe they could of pulled off 9/11. It’s beyond me.” Audience cheers in agreement…

What Joan Marsh does (as well as many others in the liberal media) is change the meaning of liberal to "propagandist." Which in a way may be good, to the extent that Americans understand that today the media predominantly uses the New Webster's Abridged NEWSPEAK Dictionary.

The word liberal does not mean propagandist, but liberal media pundits are often propagandists. They propagate the ideas and opinions they're instructed to or decide on their own accord to propagate lies, distortions and misconceptions they should know very well are as such.

For me, looking at the demolition of the WTC on 9/11 looked like a planned demolition (although one like no other I've seen) I'm not an expert, however I don't play one on TV either.

When Joan Walsh claims that our government can't get the lights on in Baghdad and can't clean up after Katrina, she should be saying that the U.S. Government quickly got the lights on in Baghdad (in the Emerald City called The Green Zone) and did clean up after Katrina (so far as criminal fraud). They decided not to help the people of Baghdad and New Orleans, not because they couldn't but because they had other priorities.

These are not liberals propagating these kinds of “incompetent government officials” and “bad apples" memes that make political discourse in the United States incomprehensible. These are propagandists.

This is just mind boggling! How could CNN have found a “journalist” that ignorant after 5 gruesome years of the Iraq fiasco? What's even more bizarre is that some editor has presumably watched this and then decided to BROADCAST it. Fixed News maybe, but CNN??? The reason Americans have so little understanding of why the US is so widely detested is that they have a truly abysmal media that plays on their ignorance rather than challenging their prejudices.
There is an absolutely classic comment at the end were he says “As you know the flow of foreign fighters and suicide bombers that helps Al Qaeda typically is through Syria”. Maybe the editor was smart enough to splice out “clearly do not” between the “As you” and “know”.

is this CNN reporter actually wearing an Army green?!

anyway, every time I hear Petraeus aka "ass-kissing little chickenshit" I feel nauseated. if that is the kind of folks in charge of running FIVE AND A HALF wars (Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen plus Iran, but only covertly for the time being) - no wonder the USA is loosing them all...
