Broadcasting Islamofascist propaganda

Reader comment on item: Television in Time of War

Submitted by Ron Crockett (United States), Aug 2, 2005 at 17:25

For the life of me, I have never been able to understand why profit oriented broadcasters lend their credibility to those who not only hate America and the West, but, given half a chance, would bring about its demise. That the MSM insists on attaching weight to our enemies' propaganda is self-destructive—as Daniel Pipes points out with his reference to the Taliban. (Vid.: James Burnham's 1964 book, THE SUICIDE OF THE WEST.

That taxpayer funded "public" television also lends itself to promoting these haters speaks volumes about its political position on America. (One wonders what they would do if they had to compete—like 'Air America'—in the marketplace for their monies?)
