Bush Viewing

Here are the comparative viewership totals for Bush’s speech Tuesday night:

  • Fox News Channel: 3,410,000
  • CNN: 917,000
  • MSNBC: 316,000

(source)

Before you rush out thinking that polls on Bush popularity are obviously wrong given the public’s rejection of CNN and MSNBC, remember that there are still three networks lurking out there. And according to Drudge, here’s how they stacked up during the Bush speech:

  • CBS: 5,800,000
  • NBC: 5,300,000
  • ABC: 5,000,000

Five times more people saw the non-Fox reports than the Fox reports. Part can be explained by the fact that not all America gets cable, but that excuse is diminishing as cable and dish service continues to expand. I’m thinking either the networks are inflating their counts, or there’s 16,100,000 people over 80 in the country who still watch the channels they’ve always watched.

New Story Blames US For Journo Death

A Knight Ridder news correspondent was shot at a Baghdad roadblock last week, and the Knight Ridder chain is rushing to judgment with an inflamatory story about the death being at the hands of an American soldier. Here’s the lead:

Yasser Salihee, an Iraqi special correspondent for Knight Ridder, was shot to death in Baghdad last Friday.

The shot appears to have been fired by a U.S. military sniper, though there were Iraqi soldiers in the area who also may have been shooting at the time.

Nowhere in the remaining story is this allegation regarding the sniper explained. In paragraph 8 it raises, then dismisses, the US soldier allegation:

An early report said Salihee was shot by a passing U.S. convoy when he failed to heed hand signals or shouts from soldiers. That later turned out to be untrue.

That’s it. Where is the justification to point blame at a US soldier when the story makes it clear that both Iraqi and US forces were in the area at the time, and that eyewitness reports were contradictory and even wrong:

Most of the witnesses told another Knight Ridder Iraqi special correspondent that no warning shots were fired. But the front right tire of Salihee’s car, a white Daewoo Espero, was pierced by a bullet, presumably meant to stop him from advancing.

Reporting this sloppy requires a conspiracy: Field reporters gather news with bias and compile it into a story with bias. In this case, the reporter, Tom Lassiter, and his Iraqi co-workers obviously talked to a lot of Iraqis, but no military sources — US or Iraqi — are quoted in the story. That’s biased news-gathering, and it leads to biased reporting.

On the copy desk, an editor saw a story in which an allegation was made, then disproved, and let it stand. To their credit, the headline was strictly reportorial: Reporter Shot In Iraq.

With Eason Jordan and Linda Foley making unsubstantiated claims about deliberate killings of journos by US forces in Iraq, Knight Ridder should have gone out of its way to say there were no indications the forces knew Salihee, who wasn’t stopping at their roadblock, was a journo, and therefore no one is alleging a deliberate journo-killing. It’s the sloppiness that comes with an anti-military, anti-war bias.

Saddam’s Links To 9/11

Melanie Phillip’s Diary has it all, a chronicle of the connections that make the word “Hussladin” perfectly sensical (if nonsensical is a word, why not?). Like this:

The Sunday Telegraph’s Con Coughlin, Saddam’s biographer, got hold of a top secret memo made available by Iraq’s interim government which explicitly linked Saddam’s regime to Mohammed Atta, the terrorist mastermind behind 9/11, and the Palestinian terrorist Abu Nidal. Written to Saddam by the former head of Iraq’s intelligence service, it contained the following incendiary passage:

‘Mohammed Atta, an Egyptian national, came with Abu Ammer (an Arabic nom-de-guerre – his real identity is unknown) and we hosted him in Abu Nidal’s house at al-Dora under our direct supervision. We arranged a work programme for him for three days with a team dedicated to working with him . . . He displayed extraordinary effort and showed a firm commitment to lead the team which will be responsible for attacking the targets that we have agreed to destroy’.

Note the date: July 1 2001. Note the phrases ‘the targets that we have agreed to destroy’ and ‘under our direct supervision’.

There’s more. You should print it out and shove it down the blathering mouth of the next anti-Bush blowhard you bump into. Whoa. That’s a bit violent for me. Oh, well.

Update On Mexican Stamp Racism


No more racist than Speedy Gonzales?

The White House has taken a strong position on the controversy (here, here) swirling around the new Mexican stamp showing Memin Pinguin, the cartoon character above, who is obviously more than a little demeaning to blacks :

White House press secretary Scott McClellan said it was “an internal issue for Mexico and the postal authorities that issued the stamp. With that said, I would like to make a couple of points. Racial stereotypes are offensive no matter what their origin. The Mexican government needs to take this into account. Images like these have no place in today’s world.” (AP)

Mexico countered saying that neither Memin nor Speedy Gonzalez should be interpreted as a racial slur. Definitely not Speedy. Smart, quick, hard working. But some of his cohorts? Every bit as racist as Memin … or HankHill, for that matter.

That said, in light of a war going on in Iraq, the Mullahs and NoKos going nuclear, and the Supreme Court getting ready to condemn your house, the significance of all this is a tad overblown, methinks.

Whacky Swedes Pitch Lee For Nobel

Also from Capitol Morning Report:

Congresswoman Barbara Lee’s office reports she’s among 1000 women to be collectively nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by a Swiss team of activists. Her office said Lee, of Oakland, was recognized for being the only member of Congress to vote against Pres. Bush’s post-9/11 resolution to “use military force against anyone suspected of having committed the acts.”

If she were to win, she would besmirch many fine people, not among them Yasser Arafat and Le Duc Tho. I decided to be kind to Jimmy Carter and Kofi Annan.

Today’s Menu

From the Capital Morning Report in Sacramento:

From Karen Hanretty, communications director for the CA GOP – The seafood special of the day at the Democratic Legislative Grill is a pungent red herring poached in special interest sauce. Market price for the red herring: worthless. Red herring is probably the best way to describe the absurdity taking place in the legislature the past few weeks.

By odd coincidence, it’s also the dish of choice at the Democratic Congressional Grill in DC.

Taking On Tragedy With Class

To the Dems who say that Pres. Bush is manipulating the message regarding the war, exploiting 9/11 and the servicemen, consider this from the WashTimes about the president’s three hours of meetings with families of the fallen prior to his Tuesday Ft. Bragg speech:

Before his speech, as is his custom, the president met for three hours with more than 90 spouses, children and parents of 32 soldiers killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom. The last person he met was Mrs. Owen [whose husband, Staff Sgt. Mike Owen, was killed in action in Iraq last year].

“Even though he’d met with 31 other families prior to me, it was like I was the only one — I mean, he made me feel special,” she told The Washington Times yesterday. “He wanted to know about Mike and about me and if I was OK.

“I did get teary-eyed and he kind of held my hands for a while,” she added. “He was very sincere and gave me a kiss on the cheek as he left — I was a little flabbergasted.”

The only other people in the room were two Secret Service agents and a photographer for the White House, which declined to release photos.

Mr. Bush has always barred press coverage of his meetings with family members of fallen soldiers.

Somehow, I can’t see President Clinton or John Kerry behaving in such a tasteful manner.

Saddam’s Iraq And 9/11

Oh, how they howl! Shame on President Bush for mentioning 9/11 in a speech about Iraq! How could he defile Holy Ground?!

Just for fun, shall we count the number of times FDR mentioned Pearl Harbor in speeches about World War II’s fronts in Europe and Southeast Asia?

And while we’re on the subject, Anchoress remembers something pertinent: After 9/11 countries all over the world lowered their flags to half staff except one. Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. Not a cause for war, for sure, but an indication that if he wasn’t connected with the massacre, he wished he had been.

Is A Bed Open At Gitmo?

Tre Arrow is an eco-terrorist who high-tailed to Canada to avoid jail time in the U.S. He’s now facing extradition:

A radical environmentalist who is one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives told an extradition hearing Monday he was being unfairly targeted by the U.S. government and should be allowed to remain in Canada. Tre Arrow, born Michael Scarpitti, is accused of taking part in the 2001 firebombings of logging and cement trucks in Oregon. The FBI also claims he is associated with the Earth Liberation Front, a group that has claimed responsibility for dozens of acts of destruction over the past few years. “I am being targeted by the U.S. government and the FBI, not because I am guilty but because I have chosen to challenge the status quo,” Arrow, and a Green Party candidate for Congress in 2000, said at his extradition hearing.

In order for an extradition to be ordered, the judge must find there is sufficient evidence to convict the accused on the same charges in Canada. Prosecutor Rosellina Patillo said evidence from the federal prosecutor in Oregon … comes from statements of Arrow’s three coconspirators who have pleaded guilty. The suspects intended to firebomb a U.S. Forest Service office, but abandoned the idea after they found the security system was too tight, Patillo said.

Arrow is seeking refugee status in Canada, his lawyer said. The 30-year-old Arrow – who says the trees told him to change his name – contends he would not get a fair trial in the United States because of the FBI’s assertion that his alleged crimes are acts of terrorism. He faces federal charges in Oregon of using fire to commit a felony, destroying vehicles used in interstate commerce and using incendiary devices in a crime of violence. He faces up to 80 years in prison if convicted.

Let’s see. Someone blows something up to further a radical and unpopular political agenda … terrorism? Yeah, I think so. And yeah, I think Tre’s being targeted — not for challenging the status quo, but for being a dangerous little schmuck.

With Obama winning the presidency by seven percent, we can't blame the media. Their laudatory coverage and refusal to extensively probe into Obama's background and [lack of] experience was at best responsible for five percent of his vote, the pundits tell us. Here is a compilation of over 100 significant instances of pro-Obama/anti-McCain bias during the 2008 campaign.
