Why I dont trust the MSM

From the Toronto Sun:

Four years after 9/11 and the "crazy zeitgeist" that permeated the United States, most Americans have still not learned to know their enemies instead of just hating them, U.S. political journalist Chris Matthews says.

In a speech to political science students at the University of Toronto yesterday, the host of the CNBC current affairs show Hardball had plenty of harsh words for U.S. President George W. Bush, as well as the political climate that has characterized his country for the past few years.

"The period between 9/11 and Iraq was not a good time for America. There wasn't a robust discussion of what we were doing," Matthews said.

"If we stop trying to figure out the other side, we've given up. The person on the other side is not evil -- they just have a different perspective."

...and this is preciselly why we can not trust democrats or the media (same thing) to fight a war against the enemies of our nation (no, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Judge Alito dont qulify). If they can sit there with a straight face and tell us that the decapitation of Nick Berg, et al., the suicide bombing of weadings in Jordan, the extermination of school children in Beslan are nothing but cases of differing perspectives, how can we trust such moral relativism to see and act based on reality.

Firing at a speeding unidentified car comming at your checkpoint is not targeting reporters. Kidnapping and beheading one is. Dropping a chunk of concrete (dummy 500 pounder) at an enemy airplane parked besides a mosque is not targeting civilians, walking into a schoolhouse and executing the teachers is. Giving a high value target a pink belly is not torture, sawing his head off with a dull knife is. There is NO MORAL EQUIVALENCY between the actions of our country at war and the action of the fanatical Jihadists. It is not an issue of perspective. It is not a misunderstanding. It is evil. Even Mathews should recognize that.

It only takes good men to do nothing for evil to triumph.

Part of the problem is that our elites confuse indecision and doubts with a moral sense.

Good post.
