More Hate



This is the latest in connection with my interrupted "vacation" post Tuesday. Sad and troubling.

Note the way the media headlined the story with "inconsistencies" in the young McCain volunteer's story. Take a look at her black and blue face. I wouldn't be surprised in the least that she had inconsistencies. But the media must try to discredit anyone who opposes Barack Obama. Sometimes they try it head on, other times they are more subtle.

Shameful.

Update: It appears now that this young woman did indeed make up the story. That's more than sad and shameful because the Democrats will now milk this for all it's worth. Almost makes me wonder if the woman really was a McCain supporter.

Regardless, my main point still stands -- the media continue their shilling for Obama. Even if the story had been true, they still would have highlighted the inconsistencies to throw doubt on the story. They do it all the time.

When it comes to this current wave of political hate, it's hard to know whether the media is provoking it or merely capitalizing on it. Perhaps both? Would so much of it be happening if it wasn't being broadcasted around the world? After all, yellow journalism has been around since the dawn of the printing press.
