Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

Maybe It's
NOT
Media Bias?



Maybe the Legacy Media is just,

Stuck On Stupid?



Corrections: For the Record


An article and a picture caption yesterday about the funeral of Sgt. Jose Gomez of Queens, who was killed on April 20 in Iraq, referred incorrectly to the Army representative who comforted his mother. She was a sergeant first class ? an enlisted woman, not an officer. The article also misstated the name of a service medal that a general presented to Sergeant Gomez's mother. It is a Purple Heart, not a Purple Star. In some copies, a picture of the coffin being carried out of a funeral home carried an erroneous credit. The photographer was Ozier Muhammad of The New York Times. (Go to Article)

You, more than anyone, understand the pain of the mother of Christ," the Rev. Thomas Healy said in Spanish to Maria Gomez, whose slender shoulders slumped into the Army officer seated to her right as her husband, Felix Jimenez, wrapped an arm around her. "We are all with you in your pain."


Now I ask you? Could anyone, except for a person who knows absolutely NOTHING about the military, mistake the person comforting this woman for an officer?.

I mean if your only contract with people in the Service had been TV shows, or Movies, you should know the difference between a Sergeant and an Officer.




Yesterday, church and state rose up, each in its ritualistic glory, to honor the brief life and sudden death of Sergeant Gomez. Father Healy tenderly anointed his coffin with incense, and gave the young man his final blessings. The ladies of Corona ? some in veils ? filled the pews. Army officers flanked the right side of the church, and a two-star general presented Mrs. Gomez with


the purple star

and bronze star that President Bush had authorized her son to receive.

One could almost excuse the Sergeant/Officer mistake but now really?


the purple star????



That is truly pathetic and the Mainstream Media keeps insisting that it is they who are more accurate due to their professionalism and editorial staff?

But again we are speaking of the New York Times, who used their power and prestige to cover up what was at the time one of the largest examples of genocide in the History of the World, even to the extent they ruined the reputations of journalists trying to get out the real truth.


Holodomor



It is obvious that the Grey Lady's penchant for Truth and Accuracy remains consistent.

In a similar vein Big Lizards in Deliberating On Mistakes
posits a question, is CNN deliberately misleading or merely woefully incompetent?



Here is what CNN reported:

Iran has a right to develop nuclear technology and the international community should drop its demands that Tehran prove it's not trying to build a nuclear weapon, Iraq's foreign minister said Friday....

"Iran doesn't claim that they want to obtain a nuclear weapon or a nuclear bomb, so there is no need that we ask them for any guarantee now," Hoshyar Zebari said after meeting with his Iranian counterpart, Manouchehr Mottaki.


But Omar listened to the audio, and he says this is completely wrong. He supplies his own translation:

We respect Iran's and every other nation's right to pursue nuclear technology for research purposes and peaceful use given they accept [giving] the internationally required guarantees that this will not lead to an armament race in the region?

This is almost the polar opposite of what CNN reported, raising the dilemma of whether we trust Omar of Iraq the Model -- or the scion of Ted Turner. (Silly question.)

If it turns out CNN mistakenly reported, out of sheer incompetence, the opposite of what Zebari said, they should fire the translator.

But if the mistranslation were deliberate, rewriting the official statements of Iraqi officials to hew more closely to what CNN would prefer they said, then -- well, then that's just the traditional MO of the mainstream media, isn't it?
