Malicious Distortion by CNN: Chances Are If You Vote For Obama, You Don't Know the Truth About This Campaign

How Low Can It Go? CNN Ambushes Palin With Misleading Insinuation

Here’s a segment from a recent CNN interview of Sarah Palin.

GRIFFIN: Governor, you've been mocked in the press, the press has been pretty hard on you, the Democrats have been pretty hard on you, but also some conservatives have been pretty hard on you as well. The National Review had a story saying that, you know, I can't tell if Sarah Palin is incompetent, stupid, unqualified, corrupt or all of the above.

PALIN: Who wrote that one?

GRIFFIN: That was in the National Review. I don't have the author.

PALIN: I'd like to talk to that person.

The author was, in fact, distinguished National Review writer, Byron York, who actually wrote:

Watching press coverage of the Republican candidate for vice president, it's sometimes hard to decide whether Sarah Palin is incompetent, stupid, unqualified, corrupt, backward, or — or, well, all of the above. Palin, the governor of Alaska, has faced more criticism than any vice-presidential candidate since 1988, when Democrats and the press tore into Dan Quayle. In fact, Palin may have it even worse than Quayle, since she's taking flak not only from Democrats and the press but from some conservative opinion leaders as well.

CNN used a technique that has become standard operating procedure by the left-wing attack media and the Obama campaign to skillfully lift words spoken out of context to suit their purpose and then run with the vicious distortion as if it were true. In this instance, Byron York was commenting about the press coverage slamming Palin, yet only a small portion of his commentary was yanked out of context to fulfill the sinister purpose to mislead Governor Palin in this interview.

If voters listen to the accusations from the Obama campaign, the lying socialist pig, the democratic candidate, Barack Obama, himself, you’d have some very different ideas about some important things John McCain discussed.

In frequent stump speeches spewing insults and putdowns of the distinguished senator, Obama frequently quotes McCain’s works, “…the fundamentals of the economy are strong….” not giving the full context in which McCain was discussing what was wrong with the economy but that our work force and some other “fundamentals” were strong despite the impending crisis.

Likewise, how often have we heard, the master distortionist, Obama, state matter of factly, that “John McCain is okay with our war in Iraq lasting for at least 100 years?” In fact, McCain was discussing the broad context of what the aftermath of US military actions brings about allowing us to establish spheres of influence such as our bases in South Korea and Germany, strategic centers of power vital for national and world security.

How often has the press set the record straight on how Barack Obama has used material out of context to misconstrue the meaning of what John McCain was explaining in a thoughtful through way?

Clearly, very little because as this dreadful episode of what CNN, the press is playing the same game. Their aim is not to report the news but to make the news. The activist left-wing media is gushing to have Barack Obama and all the extreme left wing ideals and socialist policies he embraces succeed. How they look forward to being part of history to report on the great accomplishment of the United States electing its first African American president while ignoring completely the long list of dangers and total lack of qualifications the candidate Obama represents.

Anyone who does his or her homework will quickly become hip to what’s going on with the media and the Obama campaign. Sadly, what gives most voters motivation to go beyond the conventional readily available news sources like NBC, CBS, ABC or their local newspapers for their news coverage? If the public goes deeper and watches cable news, MSNBC is the most extreme of all news sources spare some newspapers. CNN often does a professional job reporting but they have jumped off into ideological grandstanding and manipulative reporting way too often. As such, CNN is not a trustworthy news source. Beyond that, the public has talk radio. Many talk show reporters offer valid perspectives but they are not journalists. They are entertainers. Their programming is opinion driven. There is a wealth of good information on the Internet, but there is also a lot of trash. Who certifies the validity of Internet sources and Blogs such as the one you’re reading right now.

We pull no punches and excuse us if we use some graphic language in discussing the treachery the Obama campaign and left-wing extremists represent, but standard objective reportage does not provide language choices that provide the sense of outrage and passion to communicate the horrors of what is happening right before our eyes. We make no apologies for being judgmental. To do an honest job telling the truth requires us to do so. Should you not believe Obama and his supporters are socialists or even communists, read the Communist Manifesto, it’s readily available on line.
