CNN: Hypocrisy in the Service of Jihad

Dread Pundit Bluto reports that CNN has come under fire for broadcasting enemy propaganda videos of Jihadi snipers shooting down US troops. CNN’s response to the criticism? "Whether or not you agree with us in this case, our goal, as always, is to present the unvarnished truth as best we can."

CNN seems in favor of “unvarnished truth” in the service of enemy propaganda. Many of us recall however, how CNN refused to show the “unvarnished truth” when it came to the Danish cartoon controversy last year:

“CNN is not showing the negative caricatures of the likeness of the Prophet Mohammed because the network believes its role is to cover the events surrounding the publication of the cartoons while not unnecessarily adding fuel to the controversy itself.” Where was the "unvarnished truth" then?

  1. CNN is a despicable fraud! As you note, the "unvarnished truth," is relative to who's being cover. This is the same news agency that admitted going soft on Saddam so it could have continued access in Iraq.
    If the broadcasting for these snipers was so newsworthy, why not show the US soldiers actually being hit? Why not follow up and identify the soldiers? Why not follow up and video the funerals in the US? Why not ambush interview the parents and ask how they feel and if their son's death was worth it?
    I'm still waiting for CNN to broadcast the beheading of journalist Daniel Pearl. It's available through the internet if CNN needs a little help.
    In fairness, CNN needs to show the US hits on the enemy, up close and personal. Then follow up on the dead enemy to their funerals and ask them was it worth it?
