Grope This! An Age Of Propaganda
Edited on Tue Oct-07-03 09:36 AM by Skinner
AN AGE OF PROPAGANDA (PART 1)! Matthews groped for ways to help Arnold. We found it a sign of the times:


GROPE THIS: How low in character is Washingtons press corps? Chris Matthews has long been the low of the low, and he proved it again on last Friday nights Hardball. That morning, the Los Angeles Times had reported that six women had accused Arnold Schwarzenegger of groping and grabbing, without their consent. Matthews has been the musclemans chief shill in the media, so he quickly got to work, standing by his man. But uh-oh! Friday night, trouble was brewing! On Hardball, Gloria Allred expressed concern about the Times report:

ALLRED: What Im concerned about is what Arnold Schwarzenegger has done, what he has allegedly done to women, to the six women who reported incidents to the L. A. Times. We dont know if it is true or not, but Mr. Schwarzenegger himself, Chris, said where theres smoke, theres fire. He suggested that he acted badly.

ALLRED: He suggested that he apologize. But he didnt specifically say what he did. Were not stupid. The Times reported that he grabbed womens breasts, that he grabbed under their skirt and to their buttocks.

Uh-oh! It didnt sound good! So Matthews began misdirecting. By the way, where were you on Clinton? he asked, specifically mentioning Monica Lewinsky. And soon an obvious distinction was offered. This is a different situation, Allred said. This is unconsented-to conduct.
Hmmm. Lets see if we can puzzle this out. Lewinsky engaged in consensual conduct. These six (now fifteen) women say they were groped. The distinction seemed fairly clear to us, but the Hardball host was thoroughly flummoxed. Allred voiced the distinction again. But he just couldnt figure it out:


Much more....

1. I saw it, I was so angry
Like Tweety couldn't tell the difference between consensual sex and battery. Also, with more evidence of whoring, CNN tomorrow will lead with some nutbag's book about Bill Clinton's "character flaws". Just to be sure we mix the two together tomorrow. Propaganda is rampant, let this be a lesson to us for the next election.
