Lies Without Consequences
First was the column in the Wall Street Journal calling Hugo Chavez an anti-democratic dictator,( Im referring to recent attacks),also an attack by Montanas Governor Brian Shwietzer (see Che Bobs response) and now a" heated debate" in the US House of Unrepresentatives over Our Role in Latin America. (see Venezuelanalysis.com) Lies, distortions and misrepresentations came from both sides of the aile with a few defenders, such as Meeks from New York, Delahunt from Mass. and Barbara Lee from California tring to cut through the propagandistic vitriol. My point here is, anybody can now say anything and there is no consequence in terms of credibility, penalty, loss of prestige etc. The boldest lie now recieves absolutely no retribution. Idiot Wind, blowing everytime they move their teeth.
Every little once in awhile there is some discussion on media ownership, but even more rare is the global context. Murdoch, Berlusconi, GE, and now author Richard Gott (who wrote a well researched pro-Chavez book) weighs in with a book about Latin Media Mogul Gustavo Cisneros. It is reviewed in the May/June New Left Review and worth checking out.
"Thousands in Egypt Demand Holy War Against Israel" reads the headline. The Zionists are not exactly big believers in "measured response" and I am wondering where is the Great Diplomat Condi Rice? Superwoman needs to start untangling this web ( Im being snarkastic). I am also wondering, why isn't Al Qaeda leading a Terror Campaign against Israel? What am I missing here, in terms of Apocalyptic Logic?
