Monday Morning News... Bring a Shovel
I've noticed that NBC, ABC, CBS, BBC, Reuters, AP, and CNN are all bunkering down in Iraq to report on the upcoming elections. Sadly, their stories are anything but newsworthy. I think they've all flown over the pond in order to assist the insurgents in stopping Iraq's march towards democracy. You may think I'm being sarcastic, but Abu Musab al-Zarqawi said it himself this weekend when he declared a "fierce war" on democracy and said anyone who takes part in next weekend's Iraqi elections would be considered "an infidel." Zarqawi has finally come out of the closet and admitted to the world that he is fighting democracy, and who better then to help him in his crusade against democracy (and in coming out of the closet) then the leftist mainstream media of the west. After all, they fought so long and hard to prop up communism by romanticising the USSR, reporting on how much happier and peace-loving they were. They still do it with Cuba, and would also be propping up North Korea if it weren't for that pesky little tyrannical dictator's media blackout. Come on Kim Jong Ill, you know you want out of the closet too!
Heck, Iraq represents the good ol' days for the media. The common denominator is that 'evil capitalist empire' called the USA. The only difference this time is that the Western news reporters are wearing Arab Agals instead of Russian Fur Caps. Watch how hard the press will be working to spin the news when the elections turn out to be a great success. "Elections Are Over: Iraq Still Vietnam"
Now I see why the media didn't like President Bush's speech about Freedom, Liberty and Democracy. It goes against everything they believe in.
