Destroy The Man, Ignore The Issue

This was the lesson the right wing learned from the Dan Rather affair. If you can find reason to discredit a source, you never have to deal with the issue they bring up. President Bush's failure to fullfill his national guard service became a non-issue after the calls for Rather's head reached a fevered pitch.

Their latest target is Eason Jordan, CNN's news chief, who has argued in the U.K. Guardian that the U.S. Miltary has failed to protect journalists in Iraq, and that he believed Arab journalists had been arrested and tortured by U.S. soldiers. At the Davos economic summit in Switzerland, he went even further, suggesting that journalists had been deliberately targeted by U.S. forces. Rather than investigate the charges, as catalogued by Reporters without borders, the right wing Ad Hominem attack machine is calling for Jordan's head. The media becomes the message rather than the issue at hand.

Here's a sample from The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler, a top right wing blogger:

We suppose that we, too, should apologize for not having commented upon the latest Eason Jordan Foot-in-Mouth Momentâ„¢ until now, but we've had little if anything to add to what's already been said about this CNN shitbird's outrageous allegations against our Armed Forces. For a most excellent round-up, we strongly suggest that you go to La Shawn Barber's Corner.

Not that we're in the least bit surprised at his libelous lies. He is, after all, the same Eason Jordan that admitted to having been a mouthpiece for Baghdad Bob, suppressing news of torture and oppression under Sod'em Septic Tank's regime, all in order to preserve CNN's precious access.

He's also the very same nugget of ass raisins who claimed that journaljizmers were being tortured by U.S. soldiers.

And now, to top it all off (apparently notoriety is addictive), he stood up and proclaimed loudly to a gaggle of twits in Switzerland that he knew of at least twelve cases where journaljizmers had been targeted by U.S. forces and killed. That's called "assassination", in case you're wondering.

Just keep this in mind whenever somebody quotes CNN as being "news".

Heck, even Goebbels' Propaganda Ministry was more factual than that waste of airwaves.

Was Jordan correct in his belief? You be the judge.
