    OF COURSE WE DIDN'T KNOW!

    WHY DIDN'T
    WE KNOW?

    BECAUSE...

    OUR MEDIA WOULDN'T TELL US!

    Instead of reflecting our love for our country,
    we get photos of flag burning
    incidents at Abu Ghraib
    and people throwing snowballs
    at the presidential motorcades.

    Tragically, the lack of accentuating the positive in
    Iraq serves two purposes:

    It is intended to undermine the world'sperception of the United States
    thus minimizing consequent support,

    and it is intended to

    discourage American citizens

    Good news don't sell. Money is all that matters. when they have distroyed country and have first amend. removed they'll be happy.:mad:
  3. Management of the news is one of the most insidious and effective forms of public manipulation available in the world, Marlin. Joseph Goebbels once said that if you tell a big enough lie and tell it often enough, people will believe it. Unfortunately, he was all too correct. The news media in this country has become the pawn, or perhaps "lackey" is a better word, of the far left. It is no longer a source of reliable information, but instead an agenda-driven tool of manipulators, the "optimates" of American society. :mad:

    I knew a good handful of those, but some I did not. NO thanks goes out to any of the cable news networks, NONE of the mainstream press, newspapers included.
    The only thing that article is missing, is a publication date.

    Pistol, you hit nail dead square right on the head. “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it often enough, people will believe it.” The liberals are falling for it hook line and sinker, even when they have access to classified information. Well that might be a different motivation there, as they are dedicated to defeat.

    The MSM is trying to influence the outcome of this war in the same way that Walter Concrete did when he said that there was no way we could win in Vietnam. Then the public really had a cow, it was then that we lost the war.

    I remember saying to myself when their stock market opened, that would have been a good time to invest in the Iraqi dollar.

    Thanks for posting this Marlin, I have a great place to repost it. I’m sure I’ll get bashed, as usual, by the libs there for being a Right wing extremist Heheheh. Ya know, the crowd that is supposed to be the tolerant ones. HA!

    Depends on Uncle Sam's whim every 3 yrs.
    "Our strategy is to destroy the enemy from within, to conquer him through himself."

    "Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future."

    "How fortunate for leaders that men do not think."

    "Great liars are also great magicians."

    "Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it."

    "The great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one."

    "The victor will never be asked if he told the truth."

    "Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise."

    "All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach."

    "The greater the lie, the greater the chance that it will be believed."

    -Adolf Hitler

    ...all liberals pretty much think the same.
