Looking The Other Way

John Leo - September 6, 2005 - TownHall.com

The main stream media (MSM) has not been honest with the American people. Sheehan, the mother who is using her son's death for her own political gain, has long been a left wing ideologue and her postions have been carefully edited to present a view of her that is not representative of her true feelings.

Sheehan, before and after her arrival in Texas, said a great many colorful things that failed to interest mainstream reporters.


It’s worth reviewing what she said:

The neocons deliberately allowed the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

American soldiers are “being sent to kill innocent people” in Iraq.

Her son, Casey Sheehan, “died for oil” and was “murdered” by President Bush.

The United States is “not worth dying for.”

The president, who “stole the election,” is part of the “Bush crime family,” a “lying bastard,” a “führer,” a “filth spewer,” “the biggest terrorist in the world,” and an “evil maniac” who is guilty of “blatant genocide.”

Have you seen any of this reported? Do you think the average American shares these beliefs? It is of a great deal of concern that the MSM will not honestly report what someone is saying when the quotes would conflict with the message the media wants to portray. It is one more reason that more and more people are getting their news from the Internet. The MSM cannot be trusted not to lie to us.
