A week ago or so, I read an article on either MSNBC.com, ABCNews.com or CNN.com. I keep up with all three throughout the week, but I don’t remember which one it was on. Anyway, the article was written during the campaign phase of the election in Iran. Remember when everyone was led to believe that Ahmadinejad was on his way out?
The gist of the article was this: Ahmadinejad, who is an ultra-conservative, religious, right-winger, will lose the election because the people of Iran now have the guts to throw him out of office. Why do they now have this so-called power? Because they saw America throw out their ultra-conservative, religious, right-wing dictator, Bush.
I read this article with fascination. This writer –and I sure wish I could recall who it was– was convinced that America had emboldened the people of the world to oust all conservative leaders. Because, obviously, Bush was a horrible leader who was keeping the poor people of America in slavery, and now that he was out, similar leaders would be brought to “justice”. This writer was comparing President Bush and his policies with President Ahmadinejad and his anti-Semitic self.
I could not help but read this article in disbelief. I was amazed that this popular news agency would let such obvious socialist drivel on their website, much less, publish it as an article.
So my question now is this: Since Ahmadinejad won the election by a good margin, even after people said it was rigged, what does that say about the people of Iran? And more importantly, what does that say about the people of America?
And now, what does the writer of this article do as an encore? Since his stance is obvious and his opinions are clearly misguided, he will most likely always have a job at either one of these news agencies because, like him, their stance is obvious and their opinions are clearly misguided.
Now, you may ask why I read these three websites every week if I don’t put any stock in their opinions? Zig Ziglar once said that he reads the Bible and the newspaper every day, so he can see what both sides are doing. I read MSNBC, ABCNews, CNN and FoxNews every week for the same reason. I want to see what the idiots are up to and how they are spinning the world we live in.
