Eyes to See/Ears to Hear

In order to combat my annoyance over the unwillingness of media outlets to tell the truth and avoid letting their bias rule, as well as to have an outlet for my very (at times) wordy self, this blog has been created by yours truly. This will be an accounting of events in the world, my country, and my little piece of the world as best as I can see it, hear it, and relay it.

Case In Point

Many people, especially those who plan on voting for John Kerry, dismiss outright claims by those, like myself, regarding media bias.

A few months back a group of VietNam SwiftBoat Veterans got together and formed an organization asking John Kerry to release his war records and come clean about his fraternization with the enemy during the VietNam War. No outcry from the media calling for the same of John Kerry, be it in print or with a mic in front of their faces, though there have been quite a few attempts by the media to discredit these men and their message.

There has been a release of a documentary entitled 'Stolen Honor' that reveals some troubling facts about John Kerry. The major news channels have done their best to ignore the SwiftVets and/or discredit them, but they are unable to continue to completely ignore them with the release of this documentary. So now they have to face the troubling questions 'Stolen Honor' reveals, and how does ABC do it? Does Ted Koppel of Nightline interview any of the veterans that were in swiftboats such as John Kerry's at the time in question? No! Instead, ABC sends their reporters to VietNam to interview people whom ABC was told were some of the Communist guerillas who were involved in the particular incident that 'Stolen Honor' depicts.

What is wrong with talking to the other soldiers ABC? What? Are they liars and John Kerry is the truth teller?

If you didn't have an example of how ABC (and CBS as well) gets away with whatever they want , now you do. Shame on Ted Koppel who wants me to believe that he is an unbiased truth telling news reporter. What he really is is a shameful example of someone on a pedestal so high that he needs a step ladder to get on and off of it in order to go to bed at night.

Shame on we, the consumer, for auto believing such news persons while we nix as liars and biased any Christian publications.
