American Generosity and Media Bias

  • This post is in response to a question posed by one of our commenter friends..As you can see this would certainly be too long to answer in our comment boxes.. So cheer up everybody..we are not so bad after all.
  • As far as our Media suspicions, we were not too far off in that either. This in no way covers every available link out there but I find the UCLA study to be thorough.

    Little tidbit thought we might find interesting with this particular media form.

    MoveOn site is flooding ABC with hate mail and emails, petitions..My My,  seems they have a campaign going on to denounce George S. and Charlie Gibson for daring to ask questions of Obama that all of us typical People might like to know the answers to what we deem unacceptable. How dare they to ask such questions.. it was about time he fessed up.. Oh well, he does not like to talk about such things..but then ya gotta remember you are in a war zone Obama..when you run for political office sorry but your private life (past and present) is up for grabs. So put on your Big Boy smile and charm us. Now if we could just get ole Soros to move on…The man behind MoveOn.

    The Hidden Soros Agenda: Drugs, Money, the Media, and Political Power

    Soros may be the biggest political fat cat of all time. Convicted in France of insider trading, Soros specializes in weakening or collapsing the currencies of entire nations for his own selfish interests. He is known as the man who broke the Bank of England. His power is such that his statements alone can cause currencies to go up or down. Other people suffer so he can get rich. But journalists don’t want to examine the questionable means by which he achieved his wealth because they share his goal of electing Kerry and the Democrats.  Curiously, once he made his fortune he became a global socialist, endorsing global taxes on the very means he employed to get rich – international currency speculation and manipulation.

    The media consistently ignore the fact that this so-called “philanthropist” has had several brushes with the law as he has laid siege to national economies and currencies. Hard-working U.S. businessmen understand how Soros has made his money. In protesting a Soros appearance hosted by the University of Toledo, Edwin J. Nagle III, president and CEO of the Nagle Companies, highlighted “the immoral and unethical means by which he achieved his wealth.” He added, “I certainly didn’t see included in his bio the stories on how he collapsed whole country’s currencies for his own self interests so that many may suffer.”

     I apologize for the looks of this post, having a real hard time getting it to behave..:)
