The World has Gone Well and Truly Mad
August 2, 2006
Iranian News Channel (IRINN), MEMRI translation (subtitles).
[One minute twelve second video. The comments on the host site are not to be missed either. The level of thought and discourse not alarming, simply unbelievable [untold millions of Muslims, with but a single 'thought' (kill the Jew!)].
It seems that the NYT's weren't the only ones yesterday to take a pull on the Persian Persimmon's pole. NBC's Brian Williams (under the guise of presenting all points of view), CNN, and CFR. All moistened their lips and ponied up for a swig from Mahmoud's pecker. The World has Gone Well and Truly Mad.
Ahmadinejad Talks to U.S. Think Tank
Iran's President Ahmadinejad broke away from events at the U.N. General Assembly to hold an informal question-and-answer session with ..... The Council on Foreign Relations ..... for about 90 minutes in the conference room of a New York City hotel late Wednesday.
.... Ahmadinejad spoke 'with a tone that oozed polite hostility.' He entered with 'a jaunty smile, a wave and an air of supreme confidence' ...
Some excellent analysis (and baqckground), from Confederate Yankee.
But I will disagree with his conclusion. I don't believe it is fear that prevents MSM from reporting how deranged Ahmadinejad is. I believe they just don't have the properly outfitted toolkit/s to do their jobs. On the air and unaware. Fear implies awareness. They really aren't smart enough to understand. The world, Ahmadinejad, or even their own responsibility to do the jobs for which they are paid.
However Granddaddy Long Legs reports that some do indeed have the grey matter. And are actively promoting their own politics (proudly so).
Greg Mitchell, (editor of) Editor & Publisher:
The media dropped its guard in the run-up to the attack on Iraq. Will they redeem themselves if pressure builds for an air strike or war against Iran? There are some indications that some lessons may have been learned...... Newspapers may be in the role of bullpen stopper right now, with the current Iran "semi-crisis." In baseball lingo, they should try to "put out the fire" there, after losing one for the home team in Iraq three years ago...... To those who would say that this inflates the power or even role of the press in America today, I would reply: You don't expect the Democrats to keep us out of war, do you?
The first info war of the modern info age, is joined. The fifth column is now assembled, and awaits marching orders.
