And I mean it; today’s lead editorial in the Star & Sickle is bad on so many levels it’s hard to know where to begin. Therefore, I will dwell on only one aspect of this piece of regurgitated monkey spleen.
Let me start with my conclusion: The editorial board at the Star & Sickle is filled with frauds and liars.
So, how do I know the S&S are frauds and liars? In their worthless rant they conveniently forget to talk about how press releases – and I mean all press releases – are handled.
If you’ve not read the spittle you can find it here.
I ask the S&S a simple question, do you, as a rule, reveal the source of press releases that make it into the daily rag you print?
Do you ever start a story with, “In a press release from my favorite leftie special interest group...”?
Have you ever revealed the source of the fat food scares as coming from Center for Science in the Public Interest? You may print the quote from their spokesman, but you never actually let your readers know that the story comes from the CSPI, do you.
Why do you print press releases as though they come from AP or Reuters, when they actually come from a special interest group?
Now I get it...BECAUSE THEY ARE KIND ENOUGH TO PUSH THE LEFTIST AGENDA YOU APPROVE OF.
Damn, but you SOBs really piss me off.
Pretending these particular releases are different because they come from the government – actually it’s that they come from W’s administration – is so void of any journalistic integrity.
How dare you complain about TV stations accepting the videos without fact checking? When was the last time one of your hack reporters asked a wacko environmentalist to source their claims that a two cycle engine running for an hour sends as much exhaust in the air as 750 SUVs without catalytic converts driving from Minneapolis to Duluth?
And you have the nerve to talk about principle? You have no principle. You have no consistency.
Now that W’s at the helm the practice of sending video press releases is, in your red eyes, an abomination. Not because he’s doing it – after all you admit this is not the first administration to do so. No you’re pissed off because he’s spent more money doing it that Billy Boy did in his second term.
How much more? You don’t say, but I’m willing to bet it amounts to almost nothing or you would have more than happy to say so.
Why is it you are suddenly concerned about tax payers footing the bill for something that’s been going on for years?
Now I get it...BECAUSE IT AIN’T YOUR GUY DOING IT. WHEN IT WAS BILLY BOY YOU WERE GLAD TO TURN A BLIND EYE BECAUSE HE WAS PUSHING THE LEFTIST AGENDA.
Do us all a favor, next time you get the urge to purge, try your best to keep the monkey spleen down.
