Lying media whores continue their war on the truth. . .

I'm back in the saddle again!! . . . the blogger saddle that is . . . been busy lately, but I came across a Yahoo news article today that prompted me to hit the keyboard with a renewed ambition of exposing the lying media bastards in our midst.

Take a look at this AP (Associated Press) article. It's an otherwise straighforward story about the effort of Michael Schiavo, the husband of Terri Schiavo, who waged a decade-long battle to allow his brain-dead wife to die with dignity, to start a Political Action Committee that will challenge candidates based on where they stand on government's reach into American's private lives.

However, in the very first paragraph of this article you will find a subtle, but blatantly dishonest example of why this country's media can no longer be trusted to tell the basic truth to the American people.

The article begins - "Michael Schiavo, whose effort to end life support for his brain-damaged wife divided a nation, is launching a political action committee..."

I've purposely highlighted the phrase "divided a nation" because that is simply a bald-faced lie by the Associated Press. The truth of the issue is that during the media's obscene hyping of this tragic private family matter, which by the way was simply one of many that playout every single day in this country, every reputable public opinion poll showed that Americans overwhelmingly supported Michael Schiavo's right to make life-or-death decisions on his wife's behalf.

Additionally, and despite all their high-flung rhetoric, the morally bankrupt Republicans in Congress and their hypocritical religious whacko followers willfully ignored the fact that 87% of Americans ( according to an ABC News and Washington Post poll at the time) said they would want their feeding tubes removed if they were in Terri Schiavo's condition.

The absolute truth (which appears to be a foreign concept to the Associated Press and most of the U.S. media today) is that the country was not divided on this issue. Quite simply put, a commanding MAJORITY of Americans favored removing Terry Schiavo's feeding tube and allowing her to expire with whatever scrap of dignity she still posessed. But the black-hearted religious, political and media vultures would have no part of such common sense and decency and instead picked at the poor woman's lifeless carcass with unhinged fervor.

Click here and here and here and here for supporting articles showing that the Associated Press is lying to your face when they make the claim that America was divided on the Terry Schiavo issue.

Then contact the AP and ask them why they feel the need to lie to you and the rest of America, especially when the simple truth is obvious to those of us without a political, ideological or religious axe to grind.
