FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE

CNN IS Anti-American

If there was any doubt in your mind about CNN's loyalties to America, this new development in the terrorist sniper film should clear that up. The American Spectator has done a little digging, and even interviewed a former CNN news employee. The information they turned up puts one more nail in CNN's coffin.

You really have to read the article to understand:

Much has been written about CNN's decision last week to run portions of a video provided to the news network via a group identified by CNN as "the Islamic Army of Iraq."

This video, shot by the insurgent groups as propaganda for the Muslim world as well as a recruiting tool for a number of Islamo-fascist websites, showed terrorist snipers attacking American soldiers in Iraq.

According to CNN, the video was provided after a producer for CNN sent the group an email asking about its activities.

"I think the American public would be interested in exactly what the email contained, at least from the CNN side of things," says a producer for a rival news network, who was made aware of the video's existence before it aired. "My understanding is that email sent by CNN could not be construed any other way than as supportive of the Islamic militants' position in Iraq. There are people inside CNN who are disgusted by their colleagues' activities in Iraq and here in the United States in covering the war."

Attempts to get a copy of the email were unsuccessful. But one CNN source familiar with the techniques employed by network producers to get the Islamic extremist perspective says that it's common for producers to use Iraqi or Muslim contract employees to get information and access to the terrorists, and they do so by claiming sympathy or support for what the terrorists are doing.

"Anti-Americanism pays off for us over there, no doubt about it," says the CNN employee. "Questions were raised about this video and the way we got it. Once it was confirmed that it was real, the next question was how did we get it. And the answer was, we promised to give the terrorists a fair shake. I know that we are saying there was soul-searching here about running the tape. But I didn't see much of that. There were somber people here, but there was also a segment of people on staff, once the tape had run and created a firestorm, that celebrated. They thought they were so courageous."

A former CNN news employee says that at that network there is a decidedly anti-war approach to what they do. "It might not be so clear from some of our anchors, but there are people here who direct the news operation who are very comfortable giving aide and comfort to the enemy. They wouldn't call it that, but I would."


So, CNN, in their desire to be "good journalists," sent an email to America's enemies expressing sympathy for their plight. After all, CNN wanted to give them a "FAIR SHAKE." They show support for the terrorists just so they could get their hands on a terrorist snuff-film, a piece of enemy propaganda showing the horrific killing of an American soldier. This propaganda piece has been used by Islamic militants to garner support for their fight and to recruit new terrorists. And, CNN cheered at the opportunity to give this disgusting film a prime-time slot on a world-wide broadcast.

I'm sorry, did I say CNN cheered? They didn't just cheer. They put their Anti-American sentiments in a letter to the terrorists and offered them multiple forms of aid, comfort, and support, just to get their hands on this film.

It sounds an awful lot like treason to me.


CNN did say that they aired this film to show all sides of this war, to be balanced in the presentation of the brutality of war. Well, if that's true, why have they not shown this film? (This link is a video made by American soldiers. It shows American snipers killing Islamic militants. It is not for the faint of heart.)

They will show Islamic snipers killing American soldiers, but they have never and will never air this! Maybe, they just don't know about it.

But, how is it possible that a 25 year-old in Georgia can find this video, and CNN can not?
