Oops, they did it again: More of the same from our “unbiased” media

 

"I get that the story is on a damaged church, but can someone cover that cross before I start my piece?"

In what I’m sure was another honest mistake on the part of the incredibly unbiased producers at NBC, the words, “under God” were “accidently” omitted from the recital of the Pledge of Allegiance prior to their US Open coverage.

NBC’s “apology” without explanation can be read here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/early-lead/post/nbc-apologizes-for-cutting-under-god-from-pledge-of-allegiance-before-us-open/2011/06/19/AG8MgtbH_blog.html?hpid=z3

It’s amazing to me to see this type of thing over and over again. Then in response, as if we were dealing with some guilty child, we get a “sorry about that” or “we didn’t mean to”. Fortunately the pledge was not entirely butchered as these were the only two words omitted, though I’m sure you could have figured that out on your own. I understand that no one is perfect but it’s no secret that the mainstream media seeks to censor all public references to Christianity while carefully coddling all other faiths. It becomes increasingly clear with each of these little “mistakes”. Such was the case just last week when ABC and NBC refused to utter the word Muslim when reporting on a Muslim man arrested at a national monument with bomb making materials and a notebook containing pro-Muzzie terrorist/anti-American scribbling. CBS didn’t bother reporting the story at all. You can read more about that here: https://somestuffyoushouldknow.wordpress.com/2011/06/17/network-news-prepackaged-for-optimal-pc-spin/

Though many refuse to admit the obvious, it’s clear that there is a segment of the American population who hold our nation’s heritage in contempt. These are the same ilk who would like to have the second amendment as well as a great deal of the first amendment repealed. Leading the charge against traditional American values and the truth about our roots is the mainstream media.

How long until these desperate hacks figure out that their spiraling ratings are directly tied to their miserable content? I have a dog capable of learning from his mistakes far more quickly than these fools. And BTW, he does need a job.

Network News: Prepackaged for optimal PC spin

In yet another move that takes political correctness to the level of utter ignorance, ABC news goes out of its way to not mention that a man arrested with bomb making material was a Muslim.

Marine Lance Corporal Yonathan Melaku was arrested around 2am today by military police at Arlington National Cemetery. The police report that their initial attempt to confront Melaku resulted in his attempting to flee. After giving chase on foot, the police caught Melaku and discovered that his backpack contained four bags of a common bomb making material ammonium nitrate, along with spent 9mm cartridges and a notebook with the words “Taliban rules,” “mujahidin” and “defeated coalition forces.”

In reporting the story, Diane Sawyer and Pierre Thomas called Melaku everything but a Muslim. Sawyer referred to Melaku as “a 22-year old Marine Lance Corporal”, while Pierre referred to Melaku as “suspect”, “Marine reservist”, “a 22-year old Ethiopian American”, and “a lone wolf”. Not once in the ABC report was the word Muslim uttered.

The same was true at NBC where Brian Williams blazed past the issue with a brief mention of the actions of “a Marine reservist”. In a move that ABC and NBC would likely have rather taken had it not been for credibility issues, CBS simply didn’t report the story at all.

How many Muslim terrorists must we intercept and how many victims to successful Muslim terror attacks are necessary before the politically correct zombies will wake up and call a spade a spade? The leftist media never has an issue using “Christian” as a descriptive term. They clearly have no issues with referring to a “suspect’s” military rank and status. However, in much the same way as the term “illegal immigrant” is selectively left out of so many applicable news reports, the media refuse to mention the word “Muslim” in reporting terror attacks. The hard cold facts are that Islam is a remarkably common denominator in these attacks. All the disingenuous reporting in the world will not change that fact.

It’s embarrassing to watch the media intentionally omit information in an attempt to give the news a tint they find appealing.

It’s even more embarrassing that some of these same hacks have the nerve to take issue with the journalistic integrity of news sources that do report ALL the facts.
