Today, unfortunately, CNN joined ranks with Fox News, known to freethinking individuals as “Faux News“, or my favorite, “The Republican Learning Channel.” If you want to hear political spin and propaganda, then keep your TV tuned to Fox, and now, it appears that CNN is joining their ranks, leaving citizens who seek truth and facts with very few alternatives other than turning off their TV’s and reading the alternative news on the Internet.
Rather than rewriting a story that has already been excellently documented, I’ll quote a few paragraphs of importance and allow the readers to see the actual video, a partial transcript of the Glenn (Neo-Conservative) Beck segment when he teams-up with ex-Marxist David Horowitz. I am choosing a few choice excerpts, but this is a site you will want to visit to get the whole story, not my interpretation thereof:
Complaints Flood CNN After Beck Smears Ron Paul Supporters As Terrorists
Why are Glenn Beck and David Horowitz a threat to America?
a) They openly call for the U.S. military to be used to suppress freedom of speech, a complete violation of the first amendment and everything that America stands for. This in itself exposes them as anti-American traitors.
b) They openly state, without any evidence whatsoever to substantiate the claim, that Lew Rockwell, libertarian and anti-war groups are “totally in bed with the Islamofascists,” which could prompt their nutcase followers into physical violence and perhaps even assassination attempts against anti-war and libertarian leaders as well as Ron Paul supporters.
c) If there are real terrorist groups in America, as we are constantly told, then Beck and Horowitz are diverting attention away from them by fingering peaceful protest and activist groups, leaving genuine terrorists under less scrutiny by law enforcement and the FBI.
Beck and Horowitz are the only ones doing harm to America - they are anti-American traitors. MUCH MORE- Advertisement -
At first glance, you may believe that CNN is simply being “fair and balanced” by hosting Glenn Beck’s anti-American right-wing ranting and distortion of the truth - but the river runs much deeper than that! Even before this incident happened, I was working on an article where I caught CNN distorting the truth today, for the second time in less than two weeks LINK, something that Media Matters normally attends to - however, the breach of trust was so obvious by their omission of pertinent facts in an important story that I decided to expose them myself in case Media Matters didn’t catch their obvious distortion of the facts by omitting known and relevant issues that would have entirely changed the meaning and perception of the story they were reporting upon. This is their version of the news:
Telecoms that helped warrantless spying could get off the hook
WASHINGTON (CNN) — A bill that would grant immunity to telecommunications companies helping out in a no-warrant eavesdropping program authorized by President Bush and reinstate some court oversight to surveillance was OK’d by a Senate panel Thursday.
The Senate Intelligence Committee’s 13-2 vote on Thursday could heighten tensions about the disputed program between the White House and the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will consider the measure next.
After the 9/11 attacks (Emhasis added.), President Bush had authorized the National Security Agency to intercept communications of terror suspects overseas with people inside the United States without obtaining warrants from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court.

As I have pointed out before, which CNN is well aware of, there is evidence that President Bush began his planning and implementation of illegal wiretaps long before 9-11, and in fact began the second month he was in office! The issue has been well-documented, CNN knew it, but rather than reporting the whole story so America would be apprised of the truth, CNN has now mirrored Faux News by refusing to report information that won’t reflect negatively upon the Bush administration; why you ask? Who knows, and their rationale for hiding information from the public can only be speculated upon, however, whether it’s because of rank cowardice, complicity with the Bush administration, or the insistence of their owners, Time Warner, the result is the same; Americans are being mislead by a news organization that once was one of the better media outlets on the MSM. Ever since Ted Turner sold CNN, there’s been a downward spiral of the credibility of CNN, another symptom that fascism is rearing its ugly head in the United States!
What irritates me is that I and other Bloggers have posted this information before; in fact, I even wrote an article that detailed this incident: With This New Evidence, Congress Must Impeach Bush and Cheney This was the reference I quoted which is far from being unknown, and I have made it a point to bring this matter to CNN’s attention, but they still choose to ignore factual evidence that if was included in the above article - would have changed the scope and emphasis of the story itself!
Bush administration was either incompetent or is guilty of malfeasance
