No Wonder Liberal Media Hates FOX News
HERE IS VIDEO OF BRIT HUME ADDRESSING TODAY’S SLICE OF LIBERAL BIAS & DISTORTIONS IN THE NEWS
Today was an overly biased news day for the mainstream news even by their typical liberal standards. Not only were facts distorted in many areas, but we were reminded once again about what a good man ultra-liberal Joe Wilson is.
But, tonight on the popular segment of Special Report “The Grapevine”, “the most telling two minutes of television!” , Brit Hume corrected a number of the distorted news stories of the day, including…
* “ABC News reported Wednesday that 68,000 American soldiers in Iraq have sustained injuries serious enough to keep them from returning to duty.”
That, of course, is nearly five times the total number wounded in Iraq.
“The Army’s Director of Material, recently told The New York Times that the Pentagon is providing troops in Iraq with enhanced body armor that can stop special armor-piercing rounds — even though there’s no evidence insurgents in Iraq are using such rounds. Spoehr said the new vests were being delivered to troops faster than ever before. So how did The Times report that story?”
An August 14th article begins: “The Pentagon is struggling to replace body armor that is failing to protect American troops from the most lethal attacks of insurgents,” adding “…tens of thousands of soldiers are still without the stronger protection because of a string of delays in the Pentagon’s procurement system.”
“The AP is reporting that anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan (search) was moved to oppose the war in Iraq only after hearing reports of faulty pre-war intelligence following her meeting with President Bush last year.”
“But in fact, Sheehan told the website DemocracyNow.org that she and her family had been against the war from the beginning and that she’d offered to take her son Casey to Canada or “run over him with a car” to keep him out of Iraq.”
“Anti-war demonstrators organized by a group backing Cindy Sheehan’s Crawford vigil have taken their protests to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., home to hundreds of soldiers wounded in Iraq.”
“Code Pink (search) and others have camped out across from the hospital’s main entrance once a week since March chanting, “George Bush kills American soldiers” and lining up caskets to represent the dead in Iraq.”
Is it no wonder the liberal democrats were protesting FOX News while the Republican Convention was held in New York City? And, is it no wonder that FOX News is cleaning up in the news ratings? Here’s a clue to CNN and the rest on how to increase ratings,… Drop the bias! And, drop the distortions! Americans are smart enough to make up their own minds. You don’t have to do it for them no matter how much you hate the current president!
Update: I noticed that Powerline, Instapundit and Michelle Malkin were leading the blogs on these news stories, as usual. I guess it is no surprise to see that Brit is a Powerline fan. He seems to be very well informed. This would be a good plug for the new Power Line News site. They bring you all of this information in just one stop!
