der Spitzkrieg!!!

Hokey smokes, Bullwinkle!  Have you EVER heard a story like this get THIS much media coverage???  In such a short span of time?  Eyewitness News should change their tagline to: “All Eliot, all the time!”  It’s like the death of Princess Di, or JFK Jr.  It’s the Shock and Awe of semi-important tawdry behavior.  I find the amount of coverage – can you say overkill – just as, if not more so, unseemly as the actual transgression.

The sanctimonious nodding of the news anchors’ heads, all with that gleam in their eyes, just reinforces my opinion of America’s corporate media.  They spew their WMD (Weapons of Mass Distraction) to please their corporate masters, at the expense of keeping the public informed on issues of real importance.

Eliot Spitzer got his hand caught in the nookie jar!  Oooh, a sex scandal!  Puh-lease!  Sure, there is some importance to it.  He betrayed the public’s trust – blah, blah, blah.  There’s the element of hypocrisy – yada, yada, yada.  Oh, his poor wife and kids!  Wah, wah, waaa-aaaaah!  Is this life or death?  Is this more important than ‘Eight U.S. Soldiers Die in Iraq Attacks’?  My paper only reported on the five who died from the suicide bomber.  What of the other three?  Don’t they matter?  It was the deadliest day for U.S. troops in over two months.  And, where was this story displayed?  It was buried on page 5 . . . of the B section.  Typical.

They get away with this kind of reporting because we allow them to.  We should be shouting out the window, and from the roof tops, like that guy from “Network”: “I’m mad as Hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!”  But, we don’t.  Half of us are too cowed to rock the boat, and the other half are too lazy and apathetic.  Real news requires real thinking and introspection.  Maybe we don’t want to look inside ourselves because we know we won’t like what we see.  Hmmmm.

But, I digress.  Let’s all take off our judgmental caps for a while.  Let’s get past the sensationalism.  And, let’s try to regain a little perspective.

    Great comments. I think in my case I am more tired than apathetic about the war. And all politicians ( remember McGreevey , Giuliani … ) should have funds frozen until they repay the public for stolen nookie funds. Freeze the boyfriend/girlfriend too why not? She didn;t know he was using public funds o poor her. plenty of hard working folks out there without a roof over their heads. Talk soon.

    News is still news. We the people have a right to know about EVERYTHING.

    Too bad, Spitzer! You stupid hump! Paying outrageous cash for hired pussy like a drunken sailor with six months’ of sea pay…”oh, no sir, our girls are very discreet”…”i’m the governor, i won’t get caught”…didn’t even pay for the Acela for his ho, made her schlep to DC on the regular Amtrak like some kind of peon. Can’t these rich and powerful guys find like a regular woman to fuck, who would be cool about it? I’m sure that there are plenty of women willing to suck his knob and keep their mouths shut after, which is something that I really like…anyway, no love for the ex-Gov here, bitches. Anyway, is there a war still going on somewhere? Seems to me that it should be over about now…never heard about the parade or anything yet. Wait…what’s that? Has Britney flashed her cooch again? No? This is now the 5th anniversary of the War On Terrors? Why weren’t we informed? Oh, right…the mainstream media are asslicking cowards and plastic-wrapped sycophants.

    And, did you hear about Bush telling some Afghan war soldiers that he envied them, wish he was young enough to be out riding the range with them? It literally made me sick. This is a guy who allowed Rich Daddy (who was known to Prescott Bush’s friends as ‘Prescott’s idiot son’) to pull strings aplenty & get him a rare spot in the TX Air National Guard, so his preppy ass wouldn’t be in any danger of ground fire. It still steams me that, during the last campaign, Kerry allowed himself to be painted as a total fegeleh, when he had actually not only gone to war but shouldered a weapon in combat. Chicken hawks are the lowest form of human life. Or, not even human fucking beings, but worthless, disorganized pieces of grabasstic shit.
