"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Aiding and Abetting the Enemy!

Today's journalists feel they have "carte blanche" to rush stories to press without flushing out facts from fiction. Left-wing media bias is a well known fact, substantiated by their own admission. When reporter's with well established credentials file stories that are not properly checked and verified severe consequences may be the only result. In the case of Newsweek magazine the May 9th story, now retracted, concerning the Koran being flush down a toilet at Guantanamo Bay, has created unrest in the Muslim world with extreme danger to American citizens abroad. The face of America, the burning of our flag, the anti-U.S. attitude is growing exponentially. The fighting men and women in the Middle East are now at increased risk because of faulty reporting which now borders on fraud. Michael Isikoff is a well known, well respected reporter, albeit, with a liberal tilt. His reporting with colleague, John Barry is now beyond suspect. Admission of guilt has come out of the house known as Newsweek. Did Isikoff simple feel he could slip this story into the world media without extreme and dangerous consequences? Michael Isikoff and John Barry must now face the music for knowingly printing a story that did not pass muster. Newsweek magazine must not be let off the hook for what is not only shabby journalism, but an act which caused death and diplomatic consequences not easily repaired. Certainly this false story will help al-Qaeda's recruiting efforts. This story must continue to have legs and Newsweek magazine, it's writers and editorial staff must be held accountable. The anti-Bush liberals in the main stream media must be put on notice. The best way to do this is for Isikoff, Barry and editors at Newsweek to be fired and fired now!
