The So-Called Liberal Media

Barnett R. Rubin of Informed Comment Global Affairs caught this on the ‘tube: CNN compares Al Gore to Jerry Lewis

I don’t know if it is on line somewhere, but someone should check Miles O’Brien’s segment on American Morning about Al Gore winning the Nobel Prize for Peace. What is the theme? Al Gore is more popular in Europe than in the U.S., just like Jerry Lewis! CNN then illustrates this profound point by showing a particularly moronic segment of The Nutty Professor…

Go, read, and ask yourself why anyone takes the people seriously. CNN headquarters is in Atlanta. When these people are showering with bottled water and using chemical toilets, maybe they’ll notice there’s a climate problem. When their electricity is rationed because there isn’t enough water to operate the electrical generating stations, maybe they’ll notice.

There is such a dearth of news available that you wind up turning on CNN in desperation and then they pull one these stunts and you kick yourself for falling for their crap one more time.

I get annoyed that the BBC seems to find plenty to report, but the US corporations are unwilling or unable to find it. It’s patently absurd when the Beeb can “scoop” the US media on important US stories.
