FALSE MEDIA REPORTS
My boyfriend George Bush is not happy with the media. The White House dialed up the Never Been Correct(NBC)national news station to "set the record straight" on what they called a "deceitful" editing of comments made by the President in an interview with Richard Engel about whether his comments in Israel were directed at Barack Obama. When the comment appeared on all the NBC biggie shows it went like this "You know, my policies haven't changed, but evidently the political calendar has ... And when, you know, a leader of Iran says that they want to destroy Israel, you've got to take those words seriously." The part that was left out was "People need to read the speech. You didn't get it exactly right, either. What I said was that we need to take the words of people seriously." The White House has asked that a full showing of the comment without editing be shown so people can be informed and make up their own minds. Supposedly this is a regular occurrence for the Bush White House to have to constantly ward off false reports and to write letters of grievance to most news agencies. I am sure it is the same with all Presidents. I have often thought the media, though a huge necessity to our democracy, is biased and lazy in their reporting. We all know what happens to a News agency that tries to display all points of view, they are called conservative, conservative meaning negative and inaccurate. Faux News Network comes to mind. Far be it for talking head entertainment style news shows to advocate many sides of an argument. I am sure the liberal media would prefer just one side of an issue be shown and then misrepresent the retarded baby brother President. Now that's journalism!
