Liberal Media Strikes Again
Why in the hell is former TV personality Monica Crowley being asked to comment on Iran?? What a stupid question:
Joe: Monica, is there any possibility that the Iranian leaders that are in charge right now would ever be so irrational as to launch a nuclear attack on cities like Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C., if they got this nuclear device?Another new low for the liberal media. And here are a few more gems from today's Media Matters:
Monica: Unequivocally, yes, Joe. And in fact, the hypothetical scenario that you just laid out, that hypothetic ground zero is just a few blocks from where I am sitting here tonight. So, it is an incredibly frightening scenario and absolutely within the realm of possibility given the nature of the regime we're talking about. This Tehran regime covers the terrorist Trifecta. They do have weapons of mass destruction, possibly even nuclear at this point. They export terror and they do support al Qaeda.
Seeking to dismiss their concerns, Hume falsely claimed generals pushing for Rumsfeld's ouster have not been "critical of what's happening now" in Iraq
Brit Hume asserted that the seven retired generals calling for Donald Rumsfeld's resignation are doing so exclusively "based on an old argument" about prewar planning for the invasion of Iraq, and that the generals are not linking their criticism of Rumsfeld to "what's happening now" in Iraq. But contrary to Hume's assertions, several of the generals have criticized what Rumsfeld is "doing now" in Iraq.
Media ignored convicted Illinois governor's Republican affiliation
On April 17, numerous news outlets -- including NBC, CBS, NPR, and Fox News -- covering former Illinois governor George Ryan's conviction on corruption charges failed to mention that he is a Republican. Time magazine went a step further, omitting Ryan's Republican affiliation while reporting that "the current administration of Democrat Rod Blagojevich is also being investigated."
Apparently undeterred by Limbaugh's recent reference to alleged rape victim as a "ho," Rumsfeld again appeared on Rush Limbaugh
Donald Rumsfeld appeared on The Rush Limbaugh Show to discuss the growing number of retired U.S. military generals calling for his resignation, just a few weeks after Rush Limbaugh called the woman who alleged she was raped by members of Duke's lacrosse team a "ho." Rumsfeld and Vice President Dick Cheney have appeared on Limbaugh's show various times in recent years, despite the fact that Limbaugh has consistently used the program as a vehicle for spreading extreme, hateful speech and falsehoods.
On CNN's Situation Room, Kuiper admitted he "can't verify" his book's poorly sourced Clinton quotations
On CNN's The Situation Room, "conservative activist" Thomas D. Kuiper acknowledged that he "can't verify" that the quotes contained in his book of quotations he attributes to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton are "100 percent true." Kuiper also acknowledged "a legitimate criticism that the book at times comes off as almost mean-spirited."
