The Shot Heard Round the World – Newsweek Politics



The Shot Heard Round the World – Newsweek Politics –


In the left’s latest refusal to let go of a non-story they feel embarrasses the Bush Administration, Newsweeks upcoming edition features their rendition of the latest "get Cheney." It doesn’t matter that the so called "victim" has publicly called it an "ACCIDENT!" It doesn’t matter that the local Sheriff has closed the book on it seeing no reason to charge Cheney with any crime. No, the left just sees an opportunity to go after the Bush Administration……..again.


From the article;


"He peppered a man in the face, but didn’t tell his boss. Inside Dick Cheney’s dark, secretive mind-set—and the forces that made it that way."


Really? I thought all along we have been hearing how Bush tried to cover it up, having heard it about it right away and did not reveal anything to David Gregory? Isn’t that what his "tantrum" was about? Not being the first one told?


"In human terms, it is perfectly understandable why Cheney was in no mood to talk to reporters then or for several days thereafter. It is a little odd, however, that he did not speak to President George W. Bush until Monday morning, 36 hours after the shooting, and just as peculiar that Bush did not call him."


Let’s see. I’m hunting with a friend and accidentally spray him with small birdshot. My first concern should be telling the White House Press Corps? No, my first concern would be to get my friend taken care of. And again, he didn’t talk to Bush for 36 hours? If so, why has the media been crying all week that Bush knew and didn’t inform anyone?


"Has Cheney changed? Has he been transformed, warped, perhaps corrupted—by stress, wealth, aging, illness, the real terrors of the world or possibly some inner goblins?"


Hmmmm. Six years straight of leftstream media distortions and dogging over every little aspect of your life? Being called a liar everyday and a warmonger that urges war just to pad the coffers of your "buddies at Haliburton?" After any of that, I wouldn’t give the leftstream media as much as Cheney has. I’d be telling them to "rot in hell," myself.


"Cheney’s shooting party was a cozy group of rich Republicans and Texas "squirearchy." "


This is important because? Would a "cozy group of rich Democrats and Texas Liberals" have made it any different? Did Kerry’s much vaunted hunting trip prior to the 2004 elections include "rich Republicans" as well? Or, did he hunt with "rich Democrats?" Of what importance is who accompanied him, anyway?


"With Michael Isikoff, Daniel Klaidman, Richard Wolffe, Holly Bailey, Mark Hosenball and Eleanor Clift in Washington and Carol Rust in Texas"


The above credits say all that needs said. A veritable laundry list of "hate Cheney and Bush" leftist reporters. This group would choke before ever saying anything that could flatter either Bush or Cheney.


Is it any wonder why the readership of Newsweek, Time and other leftist rag sheets cleverly disguised as "news magazines" has been dropping? For all the low approval ratings they continue to boast of the Administration, the Administration was elected twice, the second by a clear majority of citizens, in spite of attempts by Democrats to muddy the election and cheat on counts to elect sKerry.


I cancelled all subscriptions to these rags long ago and will not re-subscribe again. I do not need non-news manipulations being thrust down my throat simply because reporters didn’t get their way in elections.


Freedom of the press is essential, but when they decide to sway opinion instead of reporting what happens, they have exceeded their worth, in my opinion.
