THE OPINIONATED RANTINGS OF A CONSERVATIVE MOM

Ted Koppel......put that in your pipe and smoke it!

I don't know about you, but I'm proud of George W. Bush and what he had to say tonight. It takes a lot more courage to stand before this country after the way people have been pointing the fingers at him and not blast the media for over sensationalizing the Katrina disaster, as well as the local and state officials whose blunder after blunder CREATED this mess. He was dignified and, as usual, always the optimist.

My favorite part, however (besides the last few lines of his speach that almost made me tear up) was the interview afterward (on ABC) by the correspondent in Houston, outside the Astrodome. It was pretty obvious that he hand picked the people he wanted in the interviews as they were all black. The greatest slap in the face to the media that I've seen in a long time happened when he couldn't get the "interviewees" to bad-mouth the President. He practically BEGGED them - practically put words in their mouths and they wouldn't bite. "Aren't you skeptical?" "Do you believe the President?" "Do you blame the President for what happened to you?" And person after person said they beleived and trusted what the President was saying, as well as pointing out that it was their local and state authorities who were asleep at the wheel - NOT the President.

I LOVED IT!

Take THAT, Ted Koppel and all your pompous, windbag media buddies!

    Remember last week when I parodied Cindy Sheehan calling for troops to withdrawn from occupied New Orleans? Well she really has gone and done it. Today along with Michael Moore have done this but they are serious. They are parodies of themselves. Come visit my blog I have an article on it.

    PI Mom, I love it when the MSM gets screwed due to making assumptions or making asses of themselves. They are so manipulative in who they talk to, where they get their facts from, to what stories they'll even cover.

    Secondly, I don't know if you remembered this but the rape and crime allegations of the Astrodome were discredited by the police force. As a matter of fact, the MSM created these stories and others to create more autrocities than before. Also, notice the dwindling death count from 10,000 to under 500. MSM strives on misery and sorrow, even when the misery and sorrow is fabricated by them.

    Absolutely! I read an editorial recently, can't remember where - that spoke of how it used to be "basic journalism 101" to remain neutral no matter what you were covering. They've all kicked that rule to the curb! It's out of hand and I can't see it getting better - they can't govern themselves anymore and if the government comes down on them while there's a Republican in office - they'll make it a 1st Amendment issue - if a Democrat is in office - it's a non-issue because the media is made up of libs. It's lose-lose.
