More On The CNN Sniper Video And The "Unvarnished Truth"

Jim Hoft introduces CNN to 2nd Lt. Joshua Booth, who was killed by sniper fire in Haditha on October 17 and asks if they are going to show his death, too.

When I first watched Wolf Blitzer's interview with Duncan Hunter, I was, as Michelle Malkin put it, not in a good mood. (By the way, be sure to follow the link to Michelle's site to support an American sniper.) What put me in a bad mood, and frankly made me want to scream, was a comment by Wolf Blitzer that made me realize that some things I take for granted as common sense, are things those at CNN just don't "get."

Newsbusters posted the key quote that I want to address.

Blitzer tried to argue that they were only exposing the world to the hard realities, and responding to left-wing critics that the war is sanitized since gruesome death isn't show on TV for young children to see: "Is this appropriate, Mr. Chairman, Congressman Hunter, for the American public to see how awful, to see how brutal the war can actually be? Because I -- I guess there has been criticism from the other side that we sort of whitewash, and we don't really convey to the American public the full extent of the brutality of the enemy. Do the American people have a right to know what war is like?"
Rep. Hunter had an excellent response.
Hunter argued that the people have never been more able to go find images of gruesome death in an American war: "Well, first, Wolf, the American people aren't made out of cotton candy. They understand, when you see 2,791 battlefield deaths, that people are killed, and they are killed in bad ways. This is the first generation of Americans that could actually go online and watch an American be decapitated, have his head cut off by al-Zarqawi, as they watch. So, I would say that, contrary to what you are saying, this is a war in which more brutality is shown than probably any other.

"But the point is that -- that this one killing of one American doesn't really tell any statistic. Of -- of the people killed in Iraq, 524 of our Americans have been killed in accidents, mainly automobile accidents. Now, you don't show automobile accidents, because it's not sexy. It's not violent. It doesn't draw a big audience. Showing the impact of a single bullet, a single shooting doesn't tell you anything. If you isolated one American going down on Omaha Beach at Normandy, what would that tell the American public?"

He reminded Blitzer that there were around 5,000 soldiers killed at Iwo Jima, but it was not necessary for the American people to see them being killed to understand that. Hunter went on to give additional reasons the video should not have been shown, including that CNN was allowing terrorists to use them as an outlet for their propaganda. (He said it in a much more diplomatic way though.)

Hunter got to the heart of the matter, but the CNN sniper video was only the latest example. Many in the media have allowed themselves to be used by the terrorists, as well as by those opposed to the war, to undermine support for the mission in Iraq. I have wondered over the past couple of years how much support there would have been for past wars if the enemy's propaganda was regularly fed to the American people and if only the very worst of the war effort was presented.

CNN claims they are interested in showing the "unvarnished truth?" Certainly, as Wizbang reader Scotty pointed out, they weren't so committed to showing the unvarnished truth when Eason Jordan was in the CNN Baghdad bureau covering up Saddam's atrocities. But then news of Saddam's atrocities bolstered the President's case for invading Iraq. It is no accident or coincidence that those stories rating the "unvarnished truth" treatment, as well as the wall-to-wall coverage, all happen to be the ones that reinforce Democrat talking points.

Remember all the wall-to-wall coverage of the economy during the Clinton years? It was kinda hard to miss. Well, don't know if you have heard or not, but the Bush economy is outstanding by almost every possible measure and the Dow has been breaking all time highs all month long -- oh, and gas prices are down by about 30 percent from last year. But if you watch the news you will learn that there is anxiety that bad economic news may be just around the bend. Hey, CNN, and all you other networks, could we get some unvarnished truth about the economy? No spin, no what might be just around the bend. By the way, that bad economy has been coming for a couple of years now. Don't worry media guys, eventually there will be a downturn. That is the nature of the economic cycle. Just hang in there.

The public's perception of the economy, shown in many polls, is that things are not so great. That perception flies in the face of the cold, hard facts, but what the heck? Why should the news consumer get the unvarnished truth when it comes to the economy? At least, why should they during a Republican administration?

With respect to the economy, those with a secular socialist worldview were more than willing to stress and exaggerate the good news about ecomony under Clinton, but ignore the fact that it was due soley to dumb luck and Clinton's socialist economic policies left us in a major recession. Those same people will ignore the great, strong, sound, and sustainable economy we have today because it conflicts with their secular socialist worldview and their pro-socialism agenda.

...and those who want the U.S. to loose (and the terrorist win) are going to stress and exaggerate the negative

So why would a major news source like CNN want the U.S. to loose the war by providing an outlet for terrorist propaganda snuff footage of our boys? That gives new meaning to "stress and exaggerate the negative" in my book. What is CNN attempting to do here? Support a muslim-led communist coup of Capital Hill? Jeesh!

P. Bunyan:

Red Fog,

I think in their minds, those on the left can separate the US losing from the terrorists winning. They are, after all, members of the fabricated reality based community.

So if you asked them "Do you want the terrorists to win?", they would emphatically answer "NO!", but if you asked them "Do you wan't the U.S. to win?", they would hem an haw and spin and not answer at all (just like Rosie O'Donnel did when Bill O'Riely asked her that exact question last week).

Those on the left do not want the U.S. to win any war ever. They feel all wars are bad and we should just simply not go to war. Does "make love not war" or "make wine not war" ring a bell? To the "democrats" war is not an option. It's that simple to them. Ever heard "What if they gave a war and nobody came?". They will claim otherwise, but it's all a false face designed to get the informationally retarded to vote for them.

As far as the "communist" thing goes. I think those on the left believe that if we all just submitted to a single, secular, socialist world government, there'd be world peace and no wars ever again. Actually I think that if that happened there probably would be world peace, but at a cost that is much greater than any world war.

P. Bunyan,

I follow your logic but it comes off as making excuses for the twisted vision of moonbat glory. What the current administration should do is pick the worst of the rogue traitors out there and let 'em fry a la Rosenbergs. We could plant a camera in the shoe of a Fox reporter and the editors of CNN and the NYT would rethink running snuff footage and exposing secrets. What good is a free press if it wants to do this sort of horse sh*t? There's no morality left in the press room.

bobdog:

This is from the network that got all squeamish about allowing their anchors to even wear American Flag lapel pins. And then there's the Mohammed cartoons. And their eagerness to film caskets returning to the US. Or the Koran in the Gitmo Toilet story? And wasn't there an American massacre story or six given 24/7 coverage?

Is the question about the "unvarnished truth" or "revarnished truth"? Does CNN really report the truth, or does it see its primary mission as bringing down the Bush Administration?

How you answer that question pretty much defines your political affiliation, if not your worth as an American, it seems to me.

This is not about a difference of opinion. It's about our kids and our very survival. It's about an infantile, 6 year old grudge that is so intense that it blinds liberals to the truly dangerous threats we face as a nation. And I don't mean that in a snotty way. This is a survival issue for us all, from the most fervent "bible-thumping redneck neocons" all the way down to Cindy Sheehan and the emotionally immature Commies at MoveOn.org and the ACLU. All of us, including the news drones at CNN.

What's it going to take to get us all pulling the harness in the same direction? Putting Democrats in charge of Congress is the worst thing we can do, because, as Lee, Muriego, and nowentpostal have so happily pointed out so very many times, all that would result is "getting even" for the self-inflicted disgrace of losing the 2000, 2002, and 2004 elections. You don't hear anything about how they'll deal with the war besides denouncing virtually everything that Bush has accomplished. They will succeed in turning a tough situation into a surrender, virtually guaranteeing their own worst outcomes in the Gulf Region. Recall how proud Harry Reid was when he announce "We stopped the Patriot Act!", as if it was a major accomplishment to be celebrated in the streets.

It's never about helping to solve the problem. It's about thwarting every responsible effort we can muster in hopes of flicking more mud on George Bush. I see little difference between this mindset and the craziest of Palestineans. It's about situational blindness and the victory of hatred over clear thinking.

I think there will be a time in the future when we all look at the last six years with the same embarrassed disgust with which we regard the McCarthy years. If we're not all dead first.

To come back to my original question, what will it take for CNN to take our side? I'm sorry to say it will take a bloody calamity with massive American casualties. Only then, when the truth can no longer be ignored, will CNN be forced to acknowledge the threat we all face. Until then, it's all liberal politics, all the time. And Jack Cafferty can kiss my ass.

It's all so useless, now that Bush has begun to back pedal, and I'm ashamed but we have to call Rumsfeld and now Bush a "traitor" along with Murtha and the Generals who advocate getting us out of Iraq, Never thought he'd say we have to turn it all over to the Iraqis themselves before they were ready. I guess he finally threw in the towel. Old "cut and run" Rumsfeld. No "stay the course" for our President; never been; he says it with a straight face or a smirk? What a pity!
If only Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld would "stay the course" and let our troops "stand down as the Iraquis stand up", everything would be OK. But, no, they've turned into the kind of "traitors" the dissenting generals were, and Murtha, and even Jim Baker and Kerry and Hillary seem to be. Our government is now being run by "traitors" who want to change what we're doing and cave into the defeat of our troops. Of course, to keep doing what we've been doing requires even more troops, and that requires a ... dare I say it? ... "draft"; but anything to defeat these Iraqui terrorists in this "war on terror," right?
First James Baker, then a couple of Senators like Warner and Hagel, then the leak that old Father Bush hands are in dismay over the direction of the war in Iraq. Theyre pumping up a campaign to change course and do exactly what Murtha has been calling for, only none of them is being called a traitor or a member of the cut and run group, as Murtha and others were. But thats exactly what theyre proposing. Now, in effect, George Will joins them.
I call them all "traitors" because I grieve for the good men and women already killed, and the others who still will be killed, while this timetable and withdrawal change occurs.

Chris:

I don't take issue with the article's main point that CNN is clearly lying when it says it's simply honoring its responsibility to report news accurately when it shows people getting killed. But to say that CNN has a liberal bias is absurd. It is certainly biased (as all news media are, I believe) and its bias might be more liberal, say, than FOX News' bias, but it is hardly liberal in any absolute sense. Recall, for instance, that during the year-and-a-half buildup to the war, CNN pretty much toed the Bush administrations' line that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and links to Bin Laden, even though strong doubts about the Bush administration's intelligence were already being widely reported elsewhere.

Men who have spent their entire adult lives protecting your right to so abuse them.

Throughout this entire crimunal enterprise, the MSM has been cheerleading bushco the whole way. Now that the kool-aid is wearing off, they suddenly "notice" things? Thoughtful people have been noticing this stuff for years, and we have been shouted down. Ya know, bush doesn't like you or me. He doesn't like himself either. That is a scary idea. Whether or not impeachment is on the table is a moot point. If your (and I mean your) preznit did something wrong, well then how about some consequences. Every bad decision bush has made included you in that bad decision. Is he going to give you a treat if you don't think he is a bad person? Why oh why would you honor and celebrate the single most unstable person to live at 1600 Pennsylvania ave? What has he done for you that would make up for his entire litany of criminal behavior?

I just can't understand why those on the right get so offended by the implied death of a single soldier, but don't seem to mind the actual (but unshown) deaths of thousands of other soldiers. The response to this video tells me that the right, more than anyone, needs to see video like this.

They get mad at CNN, and at the Democrats but not at the sniper, or at the Idiot that sent the soldier to Iraq in the first place.

To say that those on the right are not angry at the snipers is absurd. If you have read anyone on the right over the past five years there is no way you could honestly say that. Do your homework.

And as for those WMDs that we can't find, are you admitting that you believe the Clinton administration and the UN and France that they did exist. We actually have found some, but not the stockpiles we expected to find. Maybe if we ever have to go into Syria we will have better luck. Or maybe another one of those tractor trailers out of Syria to Jordan will get intercepted and more will be discovered. I am guessing you don't have a clue what I am referring to because it is so much easier to drink the Dem KoolAid and just pretend that Bush made the whole thing up. That just makes SO much sense to think that he would go into Iraq knowing that no WMD would be found. Brilliant theory there that those on the left have swallowed.

I do know perfectly what you are talking about. Problem is that you don't. Bush sent three different commissions to look for WMD's . They all came out with NO WMD's ... And no one suggested the WMD's went to Syria.

By the way your logic is just Bush Brilliant here!.... We attack a Blood thirsty Dictator because he has WMD's... Blood Thirsty Dictator has WMD's to protect his regime (and his ass)... Blood Thirsty Dictator is attacked by the most powerfull Nation on Earth... Blood Thirsty Dictator "defends" himself by taking the WMD's to Syria!!!, Blood Thirsty Dictator defends himself with a bunch of obsolete tanks..... Napoleon would be proud !!!!

You declare; "Clinton and the west believed that Saddam had WMD's" .... Yes, but they were not stupid enough to start a war ... Bush was.

Bush was warned by EVERYONE in the world from his father's advisors, to experts on the field, to heads of state around the world, to Saddam's neighbors of the consecuences of invading.

THEY WERE CORRECT AND YOU AND BUSH WERE ABSOULUTELY WRONG. AND NOW TRAGICALLY WRONG.

Osama is a happy man!!

In your response to my previous blog you don't mention my statement " Don't expect them to find the real issus behind CNN's video".

I just put up some of the real issues here. No, is not smart for you, or any other "brain" Right Winger out there to make pretend that our problems come from CNN.

But Hey, maibe you consider "smart" to believe that Saddam sent his WMD's to Syria, or that we are creating a Democracy in a country run by Militias fighting it out Somalia like, or that a nuclear Iran is some how an acceptable result to our invasion, or that we were going to pay this war with Iraq's oil, or that we won't need at least 200,000 troops, or that in a year we can for the most part be out, or that we will be greeted as liberators, and so on, and so on.

Mike Toreno:

There is one way, and only one way, to show what you think of CNN's action. Obviously, the goal of the terrorists who made this tape was to discourage Americans of military age from enlisting in the armed forces - to make sure that the only way they fought the war on terror was through their keyboards, and that they never got any closer to the action than their parent's basements. CNN, to their discredit, played right into the terrorist's hands.

Well, we can fight back! This tape can be the catalyst for a groundswell of enlistment. Show the terrorists that you're NOT a coward, that you ARE willing to risk your life in this fight!!!!!!!
