Moron the Media Blackout
Here's a rather amusing piece regarding a talk given by CT fruitcake Morgan Reynolds at the University of Wisconsin. The writer's understanding of the media is rather amusing:
Despite the prestigious speaker and venue, and the gravity of the charges aired, for most Americans -- indeed most Madisonians -- the event never happened. Why? Because it was censored, subjected to a total media blackout. Not a word in the State Journal. Not a word in The Capital Times. Not a word on the local TV news. Not a word on local radio news. And, of course, not a word in the national media.
Why the blackout? Because Reynolds violated the ultimate U.S. media taboo. He charges the Bush administration with orchestrating the 9/11 attacks as a pretext for launching a preplanned "long war" in the Middle East, rolling back our civil liberties, and massively increasing military spending.
Oh, the irony! Complaining that there's a taboo on publishing unfounded charges against the Bush administration in the Capitol Times, in an editorial published by... you guessed it, the Capitol Times!
As a Watergate-era graduate of the University of Wisconsin School of Journalism, I was taught that exposing government lies and corruption is the supreme duty of the Fourth Estate. I simply cannot fathom the current situation. I do not understand the 9/11 truth blackout. I wish someone would explain it to me.
I'd be happy to perform that service. The media don't cover you guys because the place that nutty conspiracy theories gets covered is the National Enquirer (although it would help if you claimed that the Martians did it).
LGF comes to the same conclusion.
