Media Blackout

Via Rodger.

Wednesday I caught wind of Nicole Kidman's issue ad in the Los Angeles Times. Signed by 85 top actors, directors and other Hollywood glitterati, it condemned Hezbollah and Hamas, and concluded:

If we do not succeed in stopping terrorism around the world, chaos will rule and innocent people will continue to die. We need to support democratic societies and stop terrorism at all costs.

Can you believe that a statement as fundamentally American, and sensible, as that could be faulted? I spent considerable time trying to find the ad without success (I just now found it here). It wasn't even mentioned in the Los Angeles Times online! A Google news search yielded nothing from Drive-by Media, who fall over themselves covering anti-war rants by the likes if the Dixie Chunks. This morning I discovered just how complete the news embargo was.

According to Nexis, not a single American news organization other than Fox News Channel has covered it

How is it that every error, every omission, every slip-up made by the media only benifits one group? That group would be the terrorists who love to blow up women and children at every opportunity.

That's not a mistake. That's a bias. The media has willingly whored itself out to Leftist ideology, and in doing so has turned itself into a propaganda organ for terrorist groups.

How pathetic and disgusting.
