Please voice your displeasure with CBS over the cover-up for McCain.
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 09:09 PM by FLDem5
If you go here and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, you will see a User Feedback link. Click on that and let them know they were wrong to be so biased.

The link to the Jed Report video of their duplicity is here in case you want to include it.

Thanks. The more I think on it, the angrier I get.

1. What CBS did was despicable, BUT, McNuts trying to fix it, and
completely screwing up the fix almost makes it worth it! What a jerk! I couldn't even tell what the hell he was talking about!

4. Done.
"You knowingly and willingly replaced John McCain's actual response to your question with a different response. That alone is despicable. Your intent was deceive the viewing and voting public into believing something other than what, you thought, McCain's true response might lead the public to believe. That is deception, that is fraud and that is vote tampering. CBS and Katie Couric, you are criminals.

Thankfully, John McCain has since refused your attempt to help him by speaking again and making matters far worse. But, don't despair, your role in this will not be forgotten, diminished or quietly kept."

6. A buzzflash contributor asked if katie couric should be fired
for substituting mccain's answer?

"Does Katie Couric deserve to be fired for substituting a John McCain answer?"

"Regular readers know I'm not a fan of the brand of journalism Katie Couric practices. But even if you are a Katie Couric fan, you have to be appalled at her latest "journalism" escapade: censoring an interview with John McCain, removing an answer that made McCain look extremely foolish on Iraq and substituting a different answer.

If the speculation is true, Couric will be replaced around the beginning of the year as anchor of the CBS Evening News. But she will still be doing journalism in some form for CBS, most likely "60 Minutes."

The network of Edward R. Murrow, Douglas Edwards, Walter Cronkite, and Dan Rather has been replaced by the network of Les Moonves, Rick Kaplan, and Katie Couric. This is the same newscast that fired a producer for plagiarism for one of Couric's "essays."

At least that producer got fired. Who will get the boot for this blatant violation of basic journalism?

If a network has protected Obama in such a fashion, we would be hearing huge outcries for firings. Just because a network protected a Republican candidate (again) doesn't mean the outcome should be any different."

10. If you use their link "contact us" you only
get to put in about 2 sentences before it magically gets sent--you don't even get to finish your thought. Well, on second thought, it's not clear that it gets sent--it just clears itself. That happened to me twice.

16. I did that yesterday, but asked if someone had
all of the email addresses for CBS News. We need to make a big stink about this.

17. Done. Took me three tries.
Magically, once I hit the pulldown for "CBS Evening News" the form reset itself. So I did that last. Soon, there will be no news outlet left to watch. Seems like Pravda x 4.
