Then why, pray tell, would they (the media and Newsweek in particular) blindly regurgitate and/or write these extremely harmful things? If, as you say, there are baotloads of "dirt" on bush and the military he leads, why make stuff up? It has only hurt their reputation and bolstered the idea of a liberal biased media.
Why make stuff up? I agree. We should leave that to the Bush administration.
By the way, I'm getting tired of you making up shit about my posts. First you accuse me of "politicizing" the military which I'm still waiting on for you to quote where I did that.....and now you're claiming that I included the military when I said there's a lot of shit on Bush out there the media isn't reporting on. Here is what I said...not that you didn't know:
"hey don't need to find dirt on him. Considering how much shit there is out there on all "fronts", the media has actually reported very little of it."
Um, hello!? They do, and that is exactly why Newsweek made a huge blunder. Self control and a little forward thinking is in order for the news outlets. That would help to significantly reduce problems like this.
Here's a new word for you since you obviously
didn't get my sarcasm
This is just too funny.
I'll be nice and explain it. The "enemy" is not sitting there waiting for Newsweek, or the Washington Times to write stuff they can use against us because there are so many other sources out there, including satellite TV, radio, internet, newspapers, magazines , from around the world that already report enough material for that if that were the case. Heck, they need only listen to Fox ("the shi'ite has hit the fan") and Limbaugh and the idiots that call his show to hate us.
Of course, the irony of this is how you're being a trooper for the winger machine's "movement" to what amounts to censoring news outlets while ignoring two wars, torture and destruction. It shouldn't really be new to you. The islamists who hate us, probably couldn't hate us anymore after Iraq, Abu Ghraib and Fallujah.
