A.P. Scare Report: A 'Brutal' Socialist Future Facing France

Quote:
...(AP is the de facto “foreign correspondent” for almost every newspaper in America now that all but a few papers have eliminated their foreign reporting staffs). It stated that recently elected Socialist President Francois Hollande’s Socialist Party “stands positioned to take control of the lower house of parliament.”...
The reporter...went on to warn readers that “A leftist victory in the voting, five weeks after Hollande took office, would brutally jar the French political landscape.”
Whoa! Last time I looked, “brutally” was a word reserved for nasty over-the-top abusive behavior....
But it’s not just that American journalists are ignorant. Reporters like Ganley, and the editors who hire and encourage her, are deliberately promoting the ignorance of the American public....
Loaded terminology like the use of the word “brutal,” and twisted analyses, which would be edited out if they were applied to a US political election, for being too blatantly biased and propagandistic, are common when it comes to reporting on international news -- and particularly about left-leaning governments.
No wonder Americans are so clueless, not just about what is going on in the rest of the world, but about what the real options could be for change in the US.
And it’s only going to get worse, with news that now the Pentagon is going to be deliberately feeding disinformation to the American public about its own activities at home and abroad.

What! They haven't been doing so all along!!
That's news to me!! · · wink
