Journalists Shouldn’t Be Defending Fox News

Typically, I used to watch all sources of news media [TV], and about six years ago watching Fox News, I had made a decision not to watch that channel because of their anchors type of “news” reporting, they became more personal rather than reporting the news, and it appears that they have only become worse since then.

I don’t really watch TV news, and get more of my news from reading it from journalism, or real news rather than an anchor who should be reporting the news over his personal opinions.  I’m not a reporter, but I do have opinions, so I like to give my opinion on what I read and how I feel about it.  That’s what my blogs are about.

News anchors are suppose to report the news as it is, not color it up or edit it in a biased way in order to favor one issue over another, that’s not journalism, and their suppose to keep their personal opinion to themselves when reporting the news.  Otherwise it’s just tabloid news, and if I wanted that I would watch tabloid news.

Why Journalists Shouldn’t Be Defending Fox News

The Obama administration’s recent characterization of Fox News is a long overdue acknowledgment of the obvious: Fox News is not a legitimate news organization — indeed, after many years of serving as the research and messaging wing of the Republican Party, it has now gone beyond even that, to become the electronic evangelist of an ultra-partisan and non-reality-based world view.

Historically speaking, White House criticism of the media has often been unseemly and defensive, with the president’s ire generally provoked by journalists who excel at their work — by asking cheeky questions, exposing important things that the president would prefer be kept secret, holding the powerful accountable and playing host to a vibrant and informed exchange of a wide range of political opinions.

But in this case, the critique is something else entirely. The litmus test is that the Obama White House is not upset at news gatherers for doing their job. What Obama and his aides are correctly pointing out is that the people working at Fox News are doing another job altogether.

The White House “attack” on Fox is being derided as bad politics, as ineffective and as a distraction from more important issues — all of which may be true. But doesn’t it kind of matter that, when it comes to the substance of what Anita Dunn, David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel, and now even Obama himself have said, they’re exactly right?

NBC May 2008; It doesn’t take a trained psychologist to observe that Bush got angrier and angrier as the Engel interview went on….

Bush typically sits down with interviewers from Fox News — or, more recently, Politico — where he can count on more than his share of ingratiating softballs. But Engel, a fluent Arabic speaker who has logged more time in Iraq than any other television correspondent, assertively confronted Bush with the ramifications of his actions in the Middle East.

For instance, Engel noted: “A lot of Iran’s empowerment is a result of the war in Iraq.” He questioned Bush about his lack of an exit strategy in Iraq: “So it doesn’t sound like there’s an end anytime soon.” He clearly upset Bush by saying that “on the ground,” the situation in Iraq “looks very bleak.” (Bush replied: “Well, that’s interesting you said that — that’s a little different from the surveys I’ve seen and a little different from the attitude of the actual Iraqis I’ve talked to, but you’re entitled to your opinion.”)

“The war on terrorism has been the centerpiece of your presidency. Many people say that it has not made the world safer, that it has created more radicals. That there are more people in this part of the world who want to attack the United States.”

[That’s an understatement!  I think Bush only went into Iraq because Saddam had threatened his father in 1992, and he wanted to get him back, meanwhile he lost all interest in the actual people (Bin Laden, and his Arab followers) who attacked during September  11th.  Has everyone forgotten what Bush did during that fateful date?  He didn’t bother calling the fighter jets, and instead he continued to read to the children because he alleges he “didn’t want to scare the children.”]

Bush admits his crimes!

Can’t forget about the disclosure of the CIA operative!  That’s is definitley treason, if you ask me.  They put the life of that CIA operative endanger out of spite for her husband, not to mention that disclosure could have put the lives of many other endanger.

Interesting about is finding “Jesus” again, or being “born again,” wasn’t it his minister that put him in all the godly mess?  Bush spoke with his minister often, as I understand, and he also had messages sent from heaven…during his Presidency…

Breaking News, World News & Multimedia

George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, was indicted Monday on charges of high treason. The charges, filed by Attorney General Russ Feingold late in the evening, allege that Mr. Bush, knowing full well that Iraq possessed no weapons of mass destruction, falsified information in order to pursue the disastrous Iraq War. (See “U.S. Knew No W.M.D.s in Iraq,” on Page A1, and the petition at http://www.democrats.com/pardon.)
The former President appeared perturbed by his own charges against him.

Federal District Judge Michael Ratner denied Mr. Bush’s request to represent himself. Ratner is the former president of the Center for Constitutional Rights.

High treason is usually defined as participation in a war against one’s own country; attempting to overthrow its government; spying on its military, its diplomats, or its secret services for a hostile and foreign power; or attempting to kill its head of state.

“In this case, high treason has been interpreted to include pursuing an illegal and devastating war that has cost hundreds of billions of dollars and the lives of over 4,000 Americans and perhaps a million Iraqis, for essentially insane ends,” said Vincent Bugliosi, a former federal prosecutor whom Feingold named lead special prosecutor in the case. “In effect, the Iraq War amounted to a war against America,” added Bugliosi, who is also the author of the book, The Prosecution of George Bush for Murder.

Haliburton’s former subsidiary KBR gets $80 million in bonuses

People claim to support our troops is just a rallying call by republican’s in particular the Bush Cheney clans for republican’s and friends.  Every one else fell for the lies of these people and the lies were told to legitimize the Bush’s wars.  It happens for every Bush war, many of you are probably to young to know.

You do a rallying call to support our troops, but you don’t realize what is really happening behind the scenes!  Our troops don’t get that money, and many of them had to purchase their own body armor, and many mother’s and father’s had bake sales just to get that equipment.  The equipment the soldiers were using in the Bush’s war were not even top quality equipment which only cause harm to the soldiers with many of them coming home with head injuries that will be with them for the rest of their lives!

Who gets all the taxpayer money, after Bush’s and Cheney’s clans rally the people under the guise of “Support Our Troops”?  Lets face it, the troops don’t see that money, but the companies that the Bush and Cheney’s support sure do.

Wars by Bush’s are started, so that they can help and support their friends and families through giving billions to their companies.

Support Our Troops, and sign the petition to stop rewarding people that cause reckless endangerment to our troops and have those involved charged for criminal negligence!

Hold KBR/Halliburton War Profiteers Accountable

The Department of Defense just gave $80 million in bonuses to KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, for electrical wiring contracts in Iraq. But in a dramatic Senate hearing, the DoD’s own documents revealed that U.S. soldiers have died via electrocution as a direct result of KBR’s shoddy and substandard work.

The Nation has issued a chilling report based on evidence revealed this week. Eighteen U.S. soldiers have died as a result of KBR’s work. One of the electrocuted soldiers was a decorated Green Beret whose death was classified by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigations Division as a “negligent homicide.”

KBR/Halliburton is not just distinguished by its close relationship with Dick Cheney, the company’s former CEO and the architect of the disastrous invasion of Iraq. It also happens to be the single largest war profiteer from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Bush’s Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, may still lead the Department of Defense under the Obama administration. But that doesn’t mean we can’t end the blank checks for Bush and Cheney’s cronies and hold war profiteers accountable.

Sign this petition today to ask Secretary Gates to rescind the KBR bonuses, pursue criminal charges against the officials responsible for the electrocution deaths of U.S. soldiers, and stop awarding defense contracts to KBR. [sign the petition]

Hold Bush and His Joint Co-Conspirators Criminally Accountable!

It’s a no brainier!

How hard can it be to charge a criminal for crimes? Oh, he’s a former President, I see, so I suppose that means every President of every country can also break laws including international laws against torture and genocide? Why have those laws?

So, why did we go into Iraq?

Many of those alleged supporters of Bush claimed that Sadam was torturing, and that’s why we are there. That’s what they said, but they also alleged other things as well. Maybe they don’t know what they’re talking about and support Bush regardless of what he’s done, so they come up with all kinds of myth stories to try and support him.

Hold Bush and His Joint Co-Conspirators Criminally Accountable!

The rule of law, justice, and basic integrity require the indictment for criminal wrongdoing of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Donald Rumsfeld, Alberto Gonzales, and other high officials of the former Bush Administration.

The media establishment is surprised by the ground swell of support from the grassroots for the pursuit of individuals who committed grievous crimes during the Bush era.

We are not surprised that the people are demanding accountability for those who committed wars of aggression, torture, and subverted the Constitution and thus violated not only their oaths of office but domestic and international law.

Please make an urgently needed donation today to help make the Indict Bush movement grow, by clicking this link.

These crimes are not abstract nor can they be ignored as belonging to a distant past. Millions of people have suffered and continue to suffer because of the criminal invasion of Iraq.

The vital resources of the country have been drained in a criminal enterprise benefiting war profiteers. The people know of and are outraged by the billions of dollars in profit made by Dick Cheney’s Halliburton and that is only the tip of the iceberg.

The pressure is building. President Obama said at his press conference this week, “My view is also that nobody’s above the law, and if there are clear instances of wrongdoing, that people should be prosecuted just like any ordinary citizen,” when asked about the pursuit of Bush Administration officials for criminal wrongdoing.

In a new poll, an astounding 2/3 of the American public favors investigating whether the Bush Administration broke the law. “A majority of respondents said a probe should be launched into allegations that the Bush team used torture…[and] investigators also should look into the former President’s program of wiretapping U.S. citizens without first securing court-issued warrants.” (AFP 2/12/09) [read more]
