You didn’t hear about this one…
I have an on-line leftist opponent that thinks that everything that FOX News presents is propaganda – he even thinks that extends to direct quotes. Read the first paragraph from Jack Cashill at the American Thinker and think – not about what gets reported – but about what doesn’t. The reason that the Left hates FOX is that they actually report things that the MSM would rather not talk about. I don’t think FOX is as much a “right wing” news source as it is reportage of things that the leftist media doesn’t see as “news” because those “items” don’t count if they have a whiff of suggestion that the political “right” might be right.
Successful propaganda is composed of equal parts deception and suppression, and the apparatchiks in the mainstream media are much better at the latter.
They may have erred in pushing the Arizona assassination attempt beyond its ideological limits last week, but they succeeded brilliantly a few months earlier in suppressing news of a nearly lethal attempt by a genuine leftist.
At some point, wearing black clothes and a bullet-proof vest, 22 year-old Casey Brezik bolted out of a classroom, knife in hand, and slashed the throat of a dean. As he would later admit, he confused the dean with Nixon.
The story never left Kansas City. It is not hard to understand why. Knives lack the political sex appeal of guns, and even Keith Olbermann would have had a hard time turning Brezik into a Tea Partier.
Indeed, Brezik seems to have inhaled just about every noxious vapor in the left-wing miasma: environmental extremism, radical Islam, anti-capitalism, anti-Zionism and Christophobia, among others.
In his “About Me” box on Facebook, Brezik listed as his favorite quotation one from progressive poster boy, Che Guevara. The quote begins “Our every action is a battle cry against imperialism” and gets more belligerent from there.
Certifiable hate in action. Amazing how this never became national news.
