Conservative Blogs Foster Climate of Terror

Well, okay…at least fear then. I offer as proof this illuminating reality check from the oppressed masses. Come see the violence inherent in the system! (and all emphasis is mine):

CNN chief news executive Eason Jordan discovered this the hard way when he was reprimanded — and ultimately privately pressured to resign — for comments made Jan. 27 in Switzerland regarding the alarming number of journalists killed in Iraq and his purported implication that American troops had purposely targeted them. The 23-year CNN veteran was roasted on conservative blogs and finally abruptly stepped down Friday.

Chris Rock knows how Jordan feels. He has been having fun taking shots at the Academy Awards and its status as an untouchable pillar of entertainment culture. But he should know that this is no time to speak freely. Those days are history. Sticks and stones no longer are required to inflict pain everywhere you turn.

Blogs, therefore, are the masters of pain and suffering, slings and arrows, sticks and stones.

Apparently NOT to blame is the alarming propensity to open one’s big mouth without accounting for what will be tumbling exhuberantly out of it. (‘purported implication‘ !!??) And why do I think it will be a great deal easier to prove that gay men do indeed enjoy the Oscars, as opposed to knowing a CNN reporter in the field is worthy of calling in an airstrike? Granted, I am the Marine, I am not the holder of a sheepskin (so could technically be considered challenged in the academic/empathetic category), but hey! Wuhdoo I know!?
I believe that answer would be ‘bullshit when I see it‘ for $200, Alex.

    What kind of a world do we live in when grown adults can’t go around spewing whatever idiotic nonsense they would like, no matter how outrageous or untrue, and not be held accountable for their statements? My god, I can feel the pressing thumb of the evil Bushhitler regime as I type.

    …alarming number of journalists killed in Iraq…
    Gee, Mr. Richmond! What about all those troops that the rest of The Hollywood Elite (e.g., Micheal The Moor) cried over? Isn’t that an “alarming” number? It sure was before the “Red States” trumped the “Blue States”.
    Better yet, how about all of the Iraqis butchered by the terrorists since Saddam got knocked on his can? Any chance that’s an alarmning number?
    As though reporters were the only casualties in Iraq! Maybe the digital brownshirts gave this selfish bastard a monster wedgie just before he wrote this column.
