In her Monday column, Elisabeth Bumiller of the New York Times gave another update on the Sheehan vs. Bush saga saying, "There is no sign that Mr. Bush will meet with Ms. Sheehan (he met with her once in a group in June 2004, two months after her son's death, when she said that he was disrespectful for calling her "Mom"), but he did say shortly after she began her vigil on Aug. 6 that he sympathized with her."
Note Bumiller keeps in step with the rest of the MSM in not mentioning Sheehan's original positive statements of her meeting with the President in 2004, as reported in her Vacaville hometown newspaper, The Reporter. She only reports what Sheehan is currently saying about that meeting.
Even more telling, we're still hard-pressed to find any mention of Cindy Sheehan's anti-American statements by any of the alphabet or major print news agencies, such as this one, "America has been killing people on this continent since it was started. This country is not worth dying for..." See more Sheehan statements.
It's one thing to be anti-war. Even our soldiers say they will fight for Americans' freedom to protest the very war they are fighting in, including Sheehan's statements like, "And you tell me, what the noble cause is that my son died for... And if he (Bush) even starts to say 'freedom and democracy' I'm gonna say, bullsh*t."
But, anti-American statements? That's a different story and one the MSM does not want to bring out because it would open too many eyes...to the whole truth. Which, by the way for those who care, would cause Sheehan's poll numbers to fall.
It's interesting that even without full disclosure of her statements by the media her numbers aren't high. Why? Because the majority of Americans don't agree with her worldview, though they sympathize with her loss.
Even though the MSM (mainstream media) isn't reporting Sheehan's anti-war, let alone anti-American, rhetoric no one has to look far to find it either in print or on video, thanks to the internet. For instance, in her article "Lie of Historic Proportions" posted on her website, dated August 8, 2005, she says in her opening paragraph:
"Iraq has been the tragic Lie of Historic Proportions of Washington, DC since before the first gulf war. For years, Saddam was one of our government’s propped up and militarily supported puppets. Many people have seen the famous footage of Donald Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam. I suppose the two are smiling so big for the cameras because they are kindred spirits. After all of the hand-shaking and weapon brokering, when did Saddam become such a bad guy to Bush, Cheney, Halliburton and Co.? (Insert your favorite reason here)."
I won't even comment the obvious on this. And there's alot more.
While it is sad for any mother to lose her son to war, I have to say that Cindy Sheehan has become not only the 'poster girl' for the peace movement, but the mouthpiece for a political agenda. Therefore, everything she says is open game, and should be reported. But I don't think we'll see either the major print or network news agencies do so, despite the decline in their ratings. They just don't get it. The American people really do want unbiased reporting.
At any rate, here's a few more links for your further research:
Truth stands up under any investigation. But the whole story has to be told.
