A picture is worth a Thousand words
The mainstream (leftist) media is foaming at the mouth, begging for the right to take pictures of corpses found in New Orleans as a result of Hurricane Katrina, and publish them. This is the same press that is rabidly attacking our President and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for slothful response to the hurricaneís aftermath. This is also the same press that is burying the fact that the mayor of New Orleans and the governor of Louisana, both Democrats, actively refused to allow the Red Cross to bring food and relief supplies to the refugees (no, Jesse Jackson, the word "refugee" is not a racist term) at the Superdome. This is also the same press that refuses to show any picture or video from 9/11, for fear of "disturbing" the people.
"How can anyone determine that photos that show anything that happened on 9/11 are "disturbing," but photos of dead and inevitably rotting corpses in the streets of New Orleans are not?"
Well, here is our perennial 9/11 picture. This shows the impact of the second airplane into the North tower of the World Trade Center. How can anyone determine that photos that show anything that happened on 9/11 are "disturbing," but photos of dead and inevitably rotting corpses in the streets of New Orleans are not? To the leftist press, this argument makes perfect sense. Rush covered this in detail today. Why would the left-leaning media think that 9/11 photos are disturbing but gory photos of New Orleans corpses are not? Simple. The 9/11 pictures remind people of our Presidentís greatness; the New Orleans pictures can be spun to falsely allege him to be a bad President.
My explanation presumes, of course, that the leftist press is hell-bent to harm our President. Considering CBS Newsí running the phony-documents Bill Burkett fiasco during an election year, the phony "October Suprise" story about Iraqi "lost" weapons that were never lost at all but in fact properly destroyed, and the failed attempt to pin a phony spy-outing charge on Karl Rove, my presumption is based on strong evidence.
The media, since Watergate, has realized itself to be something of a weapon to use against conservatism, especially against conservative Presidents. Luckily, because of Rush, Hannity, uber-bloggers like Malkin and truly balanced news coverage from Fox, their "weapon" is dulled. Whereas, in the era of Reagan, the press could feed B.S. to the people about Iran/Contra with impunity. Nowadays, CBS runs a story backed with phony documents, only to see it fall completely apart in a matter of a couple of hours. Because of this, the people are much less likely to believe the pressí words. So, itís picture time!
"The press will suppress every single frame of any pictorial matter that shows our President as anything better than a garden slug. Any picture, no matter what the picture shows, if it is bad, it will be spun with B.S. to try to harm our President."
The press will actively every single frame of any pictorial matter that shows our President as anything better than a garden slug. Any picture, no matter what the picture shows, if it is bad, it will be spun with B.S. to try to harm our President. So the leftist press hides the 9/11 photos, because they remind people of our Presidentís strong and proper resonse. The leftist press needs some pictures to bolster their Katrina B.S. Photos of dead and rotting corpses in the street help the press to falsely lay the blame for the corpses at our Presidentís feet. The buses that the written New Orleans hurricane disaster plan mandated to be used to evacuate the people never moved an inch. Those buses were under the direct control of the mayor of New Orleans. Are they to blame? Not according to the left-leaning press!
The pictures are needed by the press to make their B.S. case against the President and his appointed agency leaders. However, if they are permitted, they will be permitted by Democrats. They will be used not to relay news, but rather to use "news" as a pretense to spread anti-Bush propaganda. The people, thanks to God, have a memory.
"In this weekend of the fourth anniversary of 9/11, letís not forget the picture in this article, or the outstanding job that President Bush has done protecting us from a repeat of this attack."
In this weekend of the fourth anniversary of 9/11, letís not forget the picture in this article, or the outstanding job that President Bush has done protecting us from a repeat of this attack. Let us also not forget the facts. A picture may be worth 1,000 words, but letís hope that the words tell the entire story, one of two Democrats who either by timidity, slothfulness or actual evil intent are completely responsible for every death in New Orleans.
