Dishonest Reporting: How The Media Undermines American Resolve
Colonel Carol Green, Chief of Operational Psychology, U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command, has criticized the nations media of undermining our military and helping to erode the strength, endurance and resilience of our new and experienced soldiers.
An article in FrontPage Magazine.com April 27, 2004 1st Lt. Robert Nofsinger, U.S. Marine Corps says, "...we are losing the war of perception with the media and the American people. Our enemy has learned that the key to defeating the mighty American military is by swaying public opinion at home and abroad..."
The Cut & Run Liberal media elite that are in bed with the Democratic Party of Failure & Defeat are simply either the most ill informed and dangerous group of malcontents that have chosen to ignore the facts or they actually believe their own propaganda.
Michelle Malkin on August 15, 2007 reported that the American media the day before interviewed an Iraqi woman holding up two bullets which she claimed were fired at her home---a picture of the Iraqi woman holding up 2 pristine unspent rounds could not have been fired into her home and likewise appeared to have been rounds from an AK-47 the U.S. Military does not fire those rounds.
In 2005 the Associated Press fell for a story and phony photo supposedly of a U.S. Soldier being held in Iraq with an assault rifle pointed at his head, the AP ran with the story---it turns out that the photo was an action figure and the gun a toy rifle.
Scott Thomas Beauchamp---The New Republic hired the Army Private to write first hand accounts of Iraq, Beauchamp describes dehumanizing effects of the war in Iraq upon him and fellow Soldiers. A serious flaw in the story was that the Army Private that was feeding the New Republic disinformation was not even in Iraq at the time but had been stationed in Kuwait.
In 2004 the Boston Globe ran a story with fake pictures alleging that American Troops in Iraq raped Iraqi Women---the photographs turned out to be commercially available pornography.
Michael Isikoff of Newsweek in 2005 reported that American Soldiers flushed a Quran down the toilet at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba...liberal media outlets ran with this story which left more than a dozen people dead in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The story was false, there is no evidence that it ever happened. There was no moral outcry for the lies and disinformation which resulted in the losses of life as a result of the false reporting by Michael Isikoff.
Michelle Malkin reported on August 8, 2006 "Fauxtography Alert" NY Times & U.S. News; plus Time and Reuters and the publishing of staged media photos---in Michelle Malkin's article she has reprinted the staged photos evidencing just how the Islamic terrorists were so easily able to dupe and manipulate the gullible liberal news media.
It has become clear that the liberal media can not be trusted and their ideological agenda is more important than telling the truth.
