MSM Lies of 2005

Pretty cool stuff, and the 2006 list has already started!
Congrats to the New York Times for continuing to be traitorous, lying asshats, as they usually are.
You're first on Cassandra's 2006 list.
Keep up the great work!

Cassandra, on the other hand, does do great work at The Cassandra Page.
Here is a small sample; go read it all, though.
Scope it out, yo!

MSM Lies of 2005 - What Does It Mean?

3) January 12, 2005. The allegedly anti-war soldier that committed suicide-by-police. The MSM portrayed a gunman in California as desperate to avoid a return to combat, while failing to mention that he had never seen combat, was not headed for combat and had a history of violence before ever entering the military under murky circumstances...
The drug use, the gang ties, etc. - all went unreported in the MSM in the MSM/DNC attempt to undermine the war effort.

8. February 10, 2005 - BBC reports a bogus story of a man who was jailed by the Israeli Army for refusing to shoot children. The only problem is, the story is false. BBC later retracted the story, but refused to back off claims that Israeli policy is to shoot children. Hat tip to LGF.

9. Ongoing lie dating back to 2003 and continuing probably throughout 2005 - "There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq." Without getting into the arguments over the justification for the war, this myth is simply false. American and coalition forces found enough WMD's to kill more people than the number that died on 9-11. The real question is, what happened to the WMD's that we didn't find and that were taken away while we were debating in the UN in 2002 and early 2003.

update - The New York Times admits (on 3/13/05) the existence of WMD's in Iraq at the time of the U.S. led invasion, but only for the purpose of attacking Bush over something else. Once NYT has finished attacking Bush, the WMD's disappear down the memory hole.

update - What has been found in Iraq.

29. May 14-15, 2005. Newsweek runs a false story that U.S. soldiers flushed the Koran in front of Islamic detainees. 15 people die in the "Newsweek riots." Newsweek lied - people died.
It just goes on and on.
Go read the whole post, it is very eye-opening!
These are some of the reasons I became a Republican and a conservative.
The "win at all costs" and "the end justifies the means" dispositions prevalent in Leftyland. Truth is the first casulty with those attitudes...

Hat tip to Woman Honor Thyself!
