It is so duplicious of the now PROVEN LIBERAL/ANTI-AMERICAN MEDIA like CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and all the democratic/liberal/anti-american senators, representatives and individuals on NPR air 'air-america'. They accused the Bush Administration for 3 years of outing Valerie Plame when, since day one, the special prosector knew it was a bunch of BS.

Now when the truth is out......none of the 'media' with the exception of Fox news, has covered this important story.

It has been proven...the vast majority of the media is liberal and bias and the fools that actually pay attention to these so-called 'speakers' are the true sheep.

The Washington post thinks too much time has been spent on this......what total BS and their followers are pathetic and truly stupid.

Clinton Officials Protest 9/11 TV Series

You may be a 'super moderator' but why don't you actually have an answer to the way CNN, MSNBC, NPR, Air America and all those 'dem/lib hate mongers, have refused to talk about the plame incident?

I =n regards to the TV docu-drama, i will wait till next week and watch it and make my own judgement...you obviously have the ability and/or contacts to see the movie early.


The network released a statement saying that the five-hour telefilm, which airs Sunday and Monday nights, is not meant to be a documentary but a "dramatization" of the events leading up to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.


"It is a dramatization drawn from a variety of sources including the '9/11 Commission Report,' other published materials and personal interviews," the network said. "As such, for dramatic and narrative purposes, the movie contains fictionalized scenes, composite and representative characters and dialogue and time compression."

On that note also............Farneheit 9/11 was truthfull?

My you are making lots of assumptions about me, are you?? I was just showing to you that at least ABC is very conservative in it's ways.

Don't think you know me better than I know myself. I'm not liberal or conservative. I cringe to put myself in any of those two DESIGNED categories. Some of my beliefs do have something in common with what both sides believe though. It depends on the issue.

And no. Fahrenheit 9/11 was partisan hyped up nonsense.

And last but not least.... Why are you posting an obvious PTS themed thread here in ATS?

Still advioding the question.....it's posted here because I thought this thread was located in the Media Conspiracy section.........if it's incorrect don't you have the power to move it?

What will your opinion be if ABC decides to buckle to the dem/lib boycott and not show the movie?

Okay.. I'll admit one thing. I don't know much about the Plame incident. I'm looking at the way you've interpret it and judging the corporate-owned media as liberal.

And as for ABC. If they actually change their motives and change or remove the programming, it doesn't change anything. According to the news articles I've read the movie is attacking the Clinton cabinet on failing to fight terrorism. According to those articles it appears to be biased and does not reflect what really happened. I obviously don't know for sure about that. What I can say is that Disney is a very conservative corporation and it owns ABC.

Moving the thread to PTS now. As a member here for 4 years you should know better than to start obvious politically tinted threads on ATS.

ferretman2, you may have a valid point, but I gotta say, your attitude is something else! Relax, man!

Super-Size Me!

Bandit, you evil super moderator you! Obviously you're a lackey for the left-wing media.


ferretman2: don't worry!


We have all kinds of people on the staff: liberals, neocons, Arubans -- heck, even some of those dreaded mealy-mouthed weak-kneed moderates! (Horrors!)


We're in Slug-Fest now, which means I'm your host, and I want you to feel comfortable saying what you have to say.


The T&C apply here, as they do everywhere else in the ATS family of forums.

But here in Slug-Fest we try not to be too uptight about it, and if you should suffer an unfortunate bout of Tourette's Syndrome or whatnot, we'll try not to beat you up too badly.


Eyes Left!

I've seen some of this left-wing bias you speak of. It's very obvious in some cases.

But I've found that there's much more to the story than a few left-wing front players.

Let's not forget who owns the "Mainstream Media": multinational corporations, for whom the only true agenda is profit.

If you want, I think it would be fun to take a trip down the rabbit hole together.

If you dare!







P.S. Ferrets rule!

Coverage of the Armitage/Plame thing, found through the magic of Google:

Armitage On CIA Leak: 'I Screwed Up' - CBS
Armitage admits leaking Plame's identity - CNN
Armitage Says He Was Source on Plame - ABC
Armitage leak admission creates new questions - MSNBC
Armitage Was Source of Plame Leak, Book Says - NPR

Anything else you would like me to look up for you?

Duzy....are you saying that this important story is being reported as other events in this story took place?

Chris Mattews for MSNBC stated.."this story is too confusing to report' (paraphrased)

Do yuo think this breaking new has gooten the coverage it deserves?

It appears to be going the same way as:

Dan Rathers 'flase report' & Sandy Bergers 'top secret documents in the pants'.

ferretman2,

Honestly, I watch US news very rarely. It's full of stories with kittens in trees and very rarely touches on events outside of the US, and when it does, it's about how it affects the US. Not being from the US, I don't care about the kittens in your trees (while I do hope they get down safely) and I prefer to get international news without the US slant.

I don't know if it is being talked about in the same way these other stories you have mentioned, simply because I don't watch your news on a regular basis. I was just pointing out that there has been coverage of it by the outlets you mentioned.

If I use Google News, which doesn't even search all the news due to copyright issues, I get 1,230 stories to peruse which leads me to believe that the story is being covered. I then narrowed them by using a source in my search and posted a sample of links from them.

Regarding this Chris Matthews person (who I am unfamiliar with so I checked Wiki), he sounds like one of these talk-shows pretending to be news. CNN isn't the only network to produce these kinds of shows.
Hell, Ann Coulter makes up crap about my country every time she talks about us and hardly anyone calls her on it. I don't expect unbiased reporting from those kind of people and view them as entertainers not journalists.

Duzey, How Un-American Of You!

Obviously, you don't appreciate the
fine art of newscasting.




Look at the kitten! How cute!


If anything happens to the kitten,
it will be all your fault.


Please, think of the kittens.

Oh yeah, blame the Canuck.


The kittens are lovely but if they had been kept inside for their own safety, we wouldn't have this problem. I believe the phrase that gets thrown around is 'personal responsibility'.



I used Google News with the phrase 'cat in tree'. There were only 699 links to stories for that and only 34 for 'kitten in tree'. I say the American media is not biased against the Conservatives, but biased against cats, kittens and the problems they face.
When was the last time you saw a news story where the cat or kitten managed to get down from the tree on their own?

This is the true conspiracy - to make our feline friends look incompetent!

Proof Positive That Canadians Are Anti-Cat!

Here you go on about wanting to see real news while billions of kittens are suffering around the world. :shk:

O Canada! O the Shame!


Of what importance are things like war and poverty compared to the life of a helpless kitten?

Shows where your priorities lie, cat-hater!


God Bless Cat-Loving America!


U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!








Okay, I'm being silly, but there IS a point behind this "cattitude" of mine. Could it be that perhaps, just maybe, commercial news in America isn't about delivering real news, but getting ratings and selling ads?

Just a thought...

Oh, all right. I'll try to support the kittens. I've turned on the US news - KING 5, to be specific.

So far, this is what I have learned:

1) A church was vandalized
2) There are some people protesting the South Korea Free Trade talks - International news with the US slant
3) Something about zapping garbage with a laser and making it go 'poof' into the air - OK, that one was kind of neat
4) There's a really big fire - I already knew that, but it is major news for the area
5) Some kids that made glass globes for 9/11 families don't have enough money to send them to New York
6) There's going to be a movie about the WTO riots starring Charlize Theron
7) Something about a couple of small planes that crashed into each other over Renton a year ago and why it happened
8) Rescue of a man stuck on the side of a bluff or something - A church trip gone wrong
9) The March for Military Families to show support for the troops
10) Starbucks is being sued for recalling coupons

Ann Coulter is not a news person....she is part of the 'talk' circut and an author. Kind of like Al Franken, Jeane Garaflo and such. Whereas Mattews and Rather are main news figures which are supposed to have the news.

i assume that Orig poster has never been to mediamatters.org

that's a website that'll show you exactly how liberal CNN is...
and fox
and msnbc

the concept of liberal has been so tarnished today that it's come to mean "slightly right of center" as opposed to far right

when did liberal become a dirty word?

how about this, i'm a liberal and a progressive, and I AM PROUD
