On February 24, as U.S. media hysteria reached it's peak in the wake of the shrine bombing in Iraq, the New York Times declared in a banner headline that More Clashes Shake Iraq; Political Talks Are in Ruins. Not jeopardized, not threatened, but ruined. All hopes dashed, over, fini, kaput. Stick a fork in it. The Iraqi Consensus Front, a key Sunni Arab political bloc, had pulled out of talks to form a government with the Shiite and Kurdish parties. According to the Times, civil war was looming - perhaps had even begun.
It had to be painful for the same reporter to file this story with the Times 48 hours later
BAGHDAD, Iraq, Feb. 26 — Leaders of the main Sunni Arab political bloc have decided to return to suspended talks over the formation of a new government, the top Sunni negotiator said Sunday. The step could help defuse the sectarian tensions that threatened to spiral into open civil war last week after the bombing of a Shiite shrine and the killings of Sunnis in reprisal.Could defuse the tensions. Maybe. Possibly. Might. Because, it's not that big a deal, I guess.
No the reporter won't be embarassed by his story that contradicted his previous day's story... they know that the important people... the elite... understand that each 24 hours, the facts change... it's called an alternative reality... most in the MSM have that understanding... the paleo/neocons are simply behind the times and thus deserve to be ignored.Posted by Bob r at March 1, 2006 04:41 AM
The MSM hasn't yet adjusted to the fact that the "News" isn't necessarily on the bottom of the "Kitty Litter Box" after 24 hours.(They count on that)
"Scoop News"...Isn't that a kitty litter product?

The media is lusting for a civil war. They run 66 dead as if it were a battle. Funny, American Civil War battle casualties registered in the tens of thousands. Sounds like a street skirmish to me. Of course, the MSM never let truth get in the way of a good, liberal story.
All three of you have underlined the obvious and the lefty talking points can't impact the reality of reality- OVER THERE. Truth is one hell of an obstacle, if it doesn't come from the President of the US. Sickem and the hounds say woof. No blame. No bad news (which is perceived as the only thing fit to print, even if you have to make it up). No way the 5 minute attention span of actuality challenged, could've predicted that. It's not their fault! This is bad for the agenda mainliners, hiding under their supposed news desks. This must be Bush's fault too.Posted by forest hunter at March 1, 2006 07:57 AM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(4) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
