Rumsfeld_1

On the 29th Rumsfeld spoke at Fallon Air Station. During a question-and-answer session, Rumsfeld said “the one thing that keeps him up most at night is the manipulation of the media by terrorists”.  He says it bothers him how clever the enemy is. You know something? He’s right. You’ve known it for some time, how the media likes to put their spin on things and make the USA look like the bad guy all the time. Its easy for them, they are protected by the rights the warriors deployed are protecting! You say it can be! The media are Americans! You say they always “sell” the truth?? Look below, I beg to differ!

As mentioned before the scumbags are always willing to point out how Americans kill innocent civilians and the bone head media goes right with along with it. The facts are that the scumbags have killed thousands if not more innocent Muslims and yes hundreds of women and children!

Have you ever heard the media call the enemy “terrorists” or how about dirt bag scumbags? Nope you hear them use terms like “militants, radicals, gunmen and even freedom fighters." These are American reporters, not German or other foreign country reporters, American, the same country that had its people in NY attacked by these guys! They had rather spend numerous man hours finding dirt on an ill fated service members return from Iraq than help push a positive theme about our country and the war. We are at war you know and if it weren’t for the media, we might be light years ahead in the fight against terrorism!

  1. Captain, you know this is a sore spot for most of us and now you went and got me on my soap box again so early this morning and now my blood is boiling! Keep attacking!

  2. The Article 32 hearings at Camp Pendleton start today, now is definitely the time for pressure on the media and exposure of their part in the trumped up charges for those Marines.

  3. What are they up to in Iraq Now… something like 10,000 killed in the last three months… not by us, but their own people. Makes you sick. Great Post Maj B!!

  4. Scottish born John Swinton, managing editor of the New York Times during the Civil War, managing editor of the New York Sun for some time there after, and publisher of his own independent labor paper, “John Swinton’s Paper,” seemingly having become somewhat disaffected with capitalism and the American media, has had an interesting statement attributed to him.
    Apparently, one night, probably in 1880, Swinton, then the preeminent New York journalist, was the guest of honor at a banquet given him by the leaders of his craft. Someone who knew neither the press nor Swinton offered a toast to the independent press. It is said that Swinton outraged his colleagues by replying:
    “There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dare to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print.
    “I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.
    “The business of the Journalist is to destroy truth; To lie outright; To pervert; To vilify; To fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals for rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and or lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”

    And this from the mouth a one who would today likely be considered on the ultra left. I wonder what he would have to say about today’s media?

  5. Give ’em hell, Rummy!
    Both he, and Dick Cheney are doing a great job exposing the left media, bereft of patriotism and willing to sell out our Heroic Warriors and the life and liberty they are fighting for!
    Do I question the patriotism of
    the left?
    Damn straight I do!
    It is every American’s duty to help our country win this war against islamic fascists, and the treachery, leaking of classified tactics, lies, omissions, smears, distorted history, slants, terrorist propaganda, staging,
    photoshopping and misinformation (I’m sure I missed a few), only help the frickin’ enemy.
    Most of the leftist politicians, actors, musicians, bloggers, and the sheeple that follow them, scream out the same deception, even adding psychotic conspiracy theories, and the most vile crap imaginable,
    and it’s all designed to weaken the will and support of
    the American people.
    It’s designed to lead the US to defeat.
    The Captain (Major) is right! We can blog, write, forward, call, and vote!
    We can do everythng in our power to get the truth out to the American public.
    Isn’t our fighting Patriots worth it?
    Isn’t America worth it?
    Isn’t life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness worth it?
    Damn straight!

  6. Which do you believe?

    A tale of two stories.
    Reading Capt(Major) Bs post on Rummy yesterday was funny cause I later ran across this example of gross media bias (lies?).
    Tuesday, August 28, saw a lot of action in Ad Diwaniyah, Iraq, when attacks in three differ…
