How far the L.A. Times has fallen

October 29, 2008

Imagine if you will, a world where McCain and/or Palin was videotaped at a dinner with the Grand Wizard of the KKK or a supporter of Timothy McVeigh.  Further, imagine a McCain and/or Palin toasting the Grand Wizard or McVeigh supporter at the dinner.  The same dinner which was designed to thrash the U.S. on its foreign and domestic policies.  Would that tape be suppressed?  I highly doubt it.  Within 24 hours of Palin being selected as the VP the media uncovered her husband’s membership in a group which supported succession of Alaska or Troopergate

The L.A. Times has a video of Obama toasting Rashid Khalidi at a dinner which was designed to thrash the U.S. on our foreign and domestic policies.  A man who has spoken for Yasser Arafat.  For the sake of argument, lets say Obama is only guilty of bad judgment because Khalidi is a College Professor.  Sound familiar?  What does this story say about the LA Times?  This once great journalistic medium has been reduced to a poop collector in the collective bird cage of our society. 

Why not release the tape?  What is on there that needs hiding?  Isn’t the first rule of balanced journalism to report the news and let the public decide for themselves what to take of the reporting?  I will no longer refer to the LA Times as journalism.  It has become propoganda for the young professionals accross this country who are not smart enough to read the WSJ. 

As a side note, the Times stock has plumeted.  It might do the stockholders some good by releasing the information on its front page.  I guess when you only report half of the news you stock is immediatly cut in half.
