Pope TV and the New World Media

“There’s no doubt in my mind that there is a living God. And, no doubt in my mind that Lord, Jesus Christ was sent by the Almighty. No doubt in my mind about that,” Bush said.

Or this, “The tides of moral relativism kind of washed around the Pope, but he stood strong as a rock.” Imagine someone who just killed 100,000 human beings and authorized the use of torture on prisoners palavering about “moral relativism”? Despicable.

Never the less, the fable-making media can be expected to maintain its present tack; inventing a narrative from whole-cloth and exploiting whatever novelty appears in real-time to steer the public away Bush’s ruinous war. It’s what they do best.
Schiavo was Carrying Jacko's Love-Child !
"As many have already noticed, the Iraqi bloodbath has been knocked out of the headlines. The new game-plan is to sweep Iraq from the collective consciousness and slow the steady erosion of public support for the war. The results of that recent poll showing a collapse in support for the war, sent tremors through the political establishment, and their trepidation is reflected in way that the news is now presented.

"Ball-players on steroids, Schiavo and a dead Pope are just the first of what will certainly be many similar entertaining distractions. Next week we will undoubtedly discover that Schiavo was carrying Jacko's love-child.

"For the most part, Iraq has been buried by the media; a tacit admission that even supporters are now experiencing both doubt about the wisdom of the war and overall fatigue from the constant flow of bad news from the front. The casualties, the chaos, the lack of reconstruction, and the demoralizing stories of torture are slowly grinding down even the most ardent Bush fan."
