The Mainstream Media lied again!

Where are all the people who cried for Bush's head after reports of the murders in the Superdome and New Orleans Convention Center now? Turns out the pile of bodies the press was reporting amounted to a grand total of 10. At the superdome, four people died of natural causes, one from an overdose, and one from a suicide. At the convention center, four people were found dead, and only one had been murdered, and the authorities beleive he had been brought there, not killed there. The Media, breathlessly eager to fill countless hours of round-the-clock Katrina coverage, repeated unverified stories and rumors. And stories about people helping people at the Superdome went tragically unreported, because the media thrives on bad news. In short, the whole story of the collapse of civilization was just plain fiction.

So just where are all the bandwagoneers who called for Bush's head because hundreds of people were being murdered and children were being raped and killed? Still criticizing Bush, just for something else, and not admitting their errors. They bought into the Media's factual errors, as they have before (and no doubt will again), and that's why Lou Grant is staring out from this page.

Despite what the Left says, the Media has a hypnotic influence over the people in this country. If the news reader says hundreds are dead in the Superdome, then it must be true. The real danger to the American people isn't the Republicans or the Democrats. It's the Media.

Unless you can come up with a Times-Picayune source that says there were 1100 bodies in the Superdome, that they found the body of a five year old girl who had been raped and had her throat cut, that gangs roamed the Superdome killing anyone who crosed them, then yes, I believe this spin.

The media behaved unprofessionally, but this is nothing new. Just look at the recent string of journalists who have made up stories, the Dan Rather affair with the faked documents, etc. The MSM has been playing us for a long time.
