Cindy Sheehan claims the media are "a propaganda tool for the government." A New York Post editorial (Aug. 16) argued that Sheehan's statement was self-evidently false, given the overwhelming and almost exclusively positive media attention paid to her in the last several weeks.
Cindy is not alone in her crazy world.
But in a broader sense, Sheehan has a point: Almost all the news stories and columns in Denver dailies, like the vast majority of the rest of the mainstream media, have failed to inform their readers about what Sheehan really thinks.
Hmm, any examples?
... on Aug. 16, Sheehan held a media conference call during which she declared "The person who killed my son, I have no animosity for that person at all."
Of course not! The Islamist killers in Iraq are freedom fighters. It was her son who was on the wrong side. /LLL
At the Veterans for Peace rally, Sheehan called George Bush a "lying bastard" and a "maniac." She showed her path to peace: "You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you'll stop the terrorism." (The Crawford "Peace" House, which Sheehan has used to coordinate her protest, has a photo on its Web site depicting "Palestine" as including the entire state of Israel...
Another reason for Lefties to slobber all over Mother Sheehan.
What a sorry old demented woman.
