Does CNN Want America to Lose?

Rep. Duncan Hunter asks what is on everybody's mind: Does CNN want us to lose the war in Iraq?

The answer to that question can be summed up by a quote from Leonard Nimoy.

No. And by "no" I mean "yes".

1 The obvious answer is "yes, they do". The reason is that their staff really isn't interested in reporting from Iraq anymore. Oh, it was fine when they were bumping old Iraqi women out of their places in bomb shelters built by Iraqis for the use of Iraqis, but now that the bomb shelters are built by American companies under contract to the Pentagon, well, it's just not glamorous.

They want the U.S. involved in a new war. One where they can get new footage from guilded munitions. To hell with that slogging through the hot streets with American troops. They want air conditioned press confrence rooms with a full service buffet table and those impossible, uncomfortable folding chairs.

Really, how can they sell air time when they have to actually put reporters on the ground and tell the stories of Americans standing up to terrorists? WHERE IS THE PROFIT MARGIN IN THAT?

CNN wants the war over with because it's a money-losing story. They want a new war, one with more media glitz.

2 Dr. Shackleford,

for the past couple of years you have been complaining that the mass media doesn't show jihadist videos thushiding the true nature of the enemy from the publc.

why have you changed your mind so suddenly when cnn actually does what you have been pining for -broadcasting anislamic snuff film?

what makes showing these videos so different now?

3 good post, America Rules!

CNN should show more jihadi propaganda. It tells us about our jihadi enemies and tells us the producers atCNN work for them. Now, is that consideredespionge or treason? And, forgive me but I can never keep this straight, doyou shoot traitors and hang spies, or isit the other way around? Either way, I suppose.

5 America loses in Iraq = Democrats win back power.

6 For the lefturd trolls in disguise, (yeah, you're busted, but good try,
though), it isn't the airing of the videos that is wrong, but the
context in which they're aired, and the known loyalties and
affiliations of CNN. Of course you know this, and you're trying to
obfuscate the matter, because you're just treasonous lefturds and you
want the enemy to win for some reason unknown even to yourselves,
because the only thought you can hold in your little, diseased brains
is to make those whom you hate and envy to suffer. We know you well
enough, and thus we know you are not to be trusted. You have taken the
side of the enemy and are thus also an enemy, and don't expect mercy
when the time of your judgment comes.

7 Why doesn't CNN show decapitation videos? Isn't that also the "UNVARNISHED TRUTH"? Because the sniper video serves the MSM's liberal agenda, while decapitation videos do not.

8 Ask yourself this question...Would CNN ever broadcast aUS Miltary propaganda film if they were presented with it?

9 7 8 excellent questions. And good for Duncan Hunter for asking the first one. CNN?

10 Let's take CNN at their word and assume that this type of footage has journalistic merit. It follows that CNN should also have shown the grim beheading of Nick Berg. NONE of the MSM showed it to us, rightfully so IMHO.

The MSM also saw fit not to show us the hours of unmitigated footage of people falling to their deaths on September 11, which was a questionable call IMHO.

Which begs the question.

Why does CNN see fit to show us this terrorist propaganda snuff film of our soldiers, but find it appropriate for us not to see terrorists killing civilians?

I was fliping buy CNN a few weeks ago and their asian female news reader was happily saying how our soldiers had "Cut -n- Run" durring that caught on tape ambush of the convoy that took a wrong turn.

The other liberal media are bad, but I am never watching CNN again, not even for Lou Dobbs.

11 GMoney, I doubt it. If I remember right, all the yellow media has a thing against our military trying to get good news stories out. But CNN has no problem pimping for those who would kill them in a heartbeat if they wern't such usefull idiotic infidells.

12 CNN now has a logo that says CNN = POLITICS. Says it all. Aren't they supposed to be a news channel?
