However, I would like to take a look at the incredible behavior of the press corps during this brouhaha.
It’s been, oh, at least 400 days now that MSNBC has been obsessing on what Hillary was thinking when she made this statement. I have marvelled many times at the amazing mind-reading abilities that the media appears to have when it comes to the Clintons (and most Democrats in general). Apparently Hillary was wishin’ and hopin’ that Senator Obama would be assassinated when she was…talking about a historical event that occurred in June during an extended primary season. And when she never even mentioned Obama’s name.
Wow, I never knew that a presidential hopeful should be excoriated and convicted as Teh Evil because of thoughts she thunk!
Especially since our national press corps has COMPLETELY IGNORED THE ACTUAL MURDERERS IN THE WHITE HOUSE.
I mean, we’ve got Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rice, haven’t we? (Rumsfeld can’t even go into certain countries for fear of being arrested for war crimes.) Through malevolence, incompetence or sheer unadulterated greed, these Asses of Evil are responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.
Somehow, I don’t see them being excoriated. Somehow I don’t see their characters being constantly called into question and organizations like C.U.N.T. being formed to stop them. Somehow I don’t see calls for impeachment or any accountability whatsoever for these monsters.
No, once again, IACF rules the day.
They can’t talk about Bush and his cronies any more, after all. Remember that KKKarl works for Newsweek now.
The corruption of the corporate media is complete.
