How dumb do they think we are?

"How do we beat the bitch?"
CNN attacking McCain for words used by supporter

When I interned at CNN over 15 years ago, I knew that the network had liberal tendencies, but at least tried to maintain objectivity. Sadly the idea of unbias journalism left the first 24 hour cable news channel years ago and today we have what should be called the Communist News Network or after today the Clinton News Network.

Speaking at a campaign event on Monday, John McCain (R-AZ) was asked by an attendee "how do we beat the bitch," an obvious reference to Hillary Clinton. McCain, who has expressed great respect for the New York Senator, didn't rebuke the woman or publicly chide her for her harsh reference to Clinton. Because of a supposed lack of reaction by McCain, CNN anchor Rick Sanchez took up the left wing cause and led his Tuesday night broadcast with a doomsday outlook for the McCain Campaign.

Sanchez knew what he was doing was bias and unprofessional, which is why he began his broadcast by claiming this is a “relevant and newsworthy” topic as he seriously asked: “Is John McCain done as a result of this?”

Unlike most push-over Republicans, McCain and his camp are not taking this bias attack sitting down. They are utilizing the attack as a rallying cry for their supporters and decided voters. The McCain camp sent out an email to supporters demanding an apology from Sanchez and CNN.

“We need your help,” campaign manager Rick Davis wrote. “We need you to stand with John McCain, a man of honor, integrity and love of country, against the liberal media and liberal blogosphere that are trying to bring him down.”

Of course this was a call for money, which McCain desperately needs, but it's an excellent strategy since very few things anger conservatives more than liberal media bias. Davis rhetoric continued harping on media bias. “The CNN Network, affectionately known as the Clinton News Network, has stooped to an all-time low and is gratuitously attacking John McCain," Davis wrote.

Associating Clinton and CNN in this matter is brilliant and couldn't happen at a better time. Even though CNN and Sanchez hoped to destroy McCain, they actually have given him an additional boost in a campaign that has begun making up ground on Romney and Giuliani. Don't count this old warhorse out yet.

Silenced Lambs
Anti-war films rebuked by movie fans world wide

I often wonder what opinion polls would say if the American public was able to get objective reporting on the war in Iraq. An idea of what would be the result can be taken from the overwhelming rejection by the general public of anti-war films.

Americans may not be happy with the war in Iraq, but they sure don't want to loose and without a doubt know that the United States are the good guys despite what Hollywood has tried to feed us. That is precisely why anti-war films that paint America as evil or try to show that the terrorists are morally equivalent are bombing at the box office.

Normally when you hear that Tom Cruise, Robert Redford and Meryl Streep are starring in a film together, one would think instant box office success. Not when it comes to the America bashing films such as Lions for Lambs. This film has been as well received as Jimmy Carter at a Republican Jewish Coalition event. Speaking of the incompetent peanut farmers from Georgia. His biography by Silence of the Lambs director Jonathan Demme has been viewed by less occupants of Hannibal Lector's prison cell.

Other films featuring big Hollywood stars such as Tommy Lee Jones "In the Valley of Elah" and "Rendition" with Reese Witherspoon, portray America negatively and movie patrons have responded by not going.

Movie critic and radio talk-show host Michael Medved said it best when he wrote, "regardless of opinions on Iraq, Americans share admiration for our troops and hatred for terrorists, so anti-military movies inevitably alienate the public."

It's the public reaction to these anti-America propaganda films that reassures me that we have not forgotten about 9/11 and who the bad guys are. Even though Hollywood wants you to believe that the men and woman defending our freedoms are no better than a suicide bomber who runs his explosive filled car into an elementary school.
