When will the MSM apologise for Katrina lies?

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Lets have a summary of the facts as reported and the real truth.

  1. Toxic Soup – the deadly mixture of chemicals, gasoline, human and animal waste and decaying bodies floating through New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. VERDICT: Guilty, never happened
  2. Rampaging gangs of murderous rapists in the New Orleans Convention Center and Superdome.VERDICT: Guilty, never happened
  3. The stacks of bodies of people killed in those locations during five days of hell before help arrived.VERDICT: Guilty, never happened
  4. The dead seven-year-old girl with the slashed throated and raped soul lying in the freezer. VERDICT: Guilty, never happened.
  5. Democrat New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagins’ uncritically reported prediction that 10,000 people were dead. VERDICT: Guilty, never happened
  6. The snipers supposedly firing at rescue helicopters trying to save people from rooftops and hospitals. VERDICT: Guilty, never happened
  7. Little babies being raped. VERDICT: Guilty, never happened
  8. The well-armed gangs pillaging block after block while dueling with hopelessly out-gunned cops. VERDICT: Guilty, never happened

Townhall.com has additional commentary that upon reading condems the MSM as guilty by association for perpetrating these myths and lies.

Tragically, false reporting can be deadly, as documented by Townhall.com columnist Michael Fumento who noted that CNN’s Dr. Sanja Gupta’s report that two patients died while waiting for those evacuation helicopters grounded for a day by the false reports of sniper fire. “The inability to get people out of these hospitals is frightening,” said Gupta, according to Fumento.

Now that the truth about the incredibly flawed reportage is public, when do we start hearing apologies from the ink-stained wretches of the daily newspaper newsrooms and the stiff-haired anchors of broadcast news?

He isn’t holding his breath and neither am I.

Is it any wonder that more and more people are turning to the “un-professional” bloggers out there for intellectual diversity.

Why is Intellectual Diveristy so important? Because it essential to continually challengings your assumptions, constantly inducing you to reexamine why you think you know what you think you know – what used to be called “critical thinking.” It is a key factor in the make-up of the truly independent journalist.

Is it any wonder that we journalists have lost the public’s trust?
