The media telling lies

  1. I think this needs a separate thread.

    The Hillary thread has an alleghation that senator Obama is a secret Muslim. That he attended a madrassa in Indonesia, and that the Hillary camp is the source of the story. All untrue.

    WHY do these "new" sources spread lies?

    A January 20 New York Post article quoted Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson saying, "We have no connection to this story."

    The article further reported that Obama strategist David Axelrod said he did not "believe ... for a second" the allegation that Clinton's camp was behind the story.

    InsightMag.com is the successor to Insight on the News, a biweekly magazine published until April 2004 by News World Communications, the company controlled by Rev. Sun Myung Moon that also operates The Washington Times and the wire service United Press International. The website describes itself as a "weekly Internet news magazine."

    If you've ever wondered how agit-propaganda works, you might take a look at the latest case study from the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's media empire - a bogus story about Barack Obama attending a Muslim "madrassah" when he was six years old, a smear that was then attributed to operatives of Hillary Clinton.

    The shrewdness of Moon's Insight magazine story is that it hit two enemies with one anonymously sourced stone, a strategy of slime and divide straight from the textbooks of a spy agency like the CIA.

    Only in this case, it is not the CIA planting black propaganda in a foreign publication to undermine some U.S. enemy.

    It is Moon using his media outlets subsidized by his mysterious foreign money to manipulate and distort the U.S. political process, again....
