Enough of E.J. Dionne’s Post Propaganda

Enough of E.J. Dionne’s Post Propaganda

I personally have had enough of E.J. Dionne’s propaganda from the Washington Post. His article, Enough right-wing propaganda, is filled with incorrect assertions in his rant against Fox News. His attempt to turn the airing of Andrew Breitbart’s video footage as it was presented to him into some disgrace that indicts Fox and should dismantle it for all time is weak at best.  If it is a misrepresentation of racial views in the NAACP, it should be duly noted and everyone can then move on.

After all how much time is spent at major news outlets delving into the countless mischaracterizations of conservative Republicans? How much coverage did you see on Dan Rather’s hack job on 60 Minutes about George W. Bush and his military record?

EJ  claims it a fact “that racial backlash politics is becoming an important component of the campaign against President Obama and against progressives in this year’s election.”  That is disgusting, inflammatory language that is divisive and unfounded.
Talk about sludge being pumped into political waters!  Where was the disgust and outrage over regular threats against the lives of then Vice President Cheney and our sitting President at the time?  Where was that righteous indignation when Code Pink regularly burst into Congress or Bush’s inaugural address, or the outrageous statements by Cindy Sheehan, or even the heinous allegations by the late congressman of Pennsylvania, John Murtha?  I didn’t see it. It is that imbalance of countless news organizations that the single Fox network faces.

John Murtha’s attacks on Haditha marines continued unopposed and unchallenged by anyone in the mainstream media. He charged repeatedly that the marines had “killed innocent civilians in cold blood.”  The New York Times referred to the event that was under investigation as the “defining atrocity” of the Iraq war.  Of course Keith Olbermann piled on using similar terms.  These accusations were never retracted by the late Murtha much less the multitude of media hacks despite the fact that virtually all charges against the marines involved have been dropped.

Ultimately EJ is sounding the familiar call for action against the free speech of conservatives while excusing the many mistakes by the dinosaur media that go uncorrected, unchallenged, and without apology for on a regular, tiresome basis. EJ’s rant is simply more pathetic whining by elitists spoiled rotten by always getting the last word and incapable of withstanding a little scrutiny from a singular news outlet that is loved by millions of Americans.

About OneConservativeVoice

I am an everyday, stay home mom of young children who becomes incensed and indignant when I am categorized and insulted by national media types. Blogging is more productive, I think, than giving the TV an earful. I happen to be grateful to the Founding Fathers for setting our liberties in motion and would like to honor their sacrifice and their wisdom in some small way with one small conservative voice.
