BUSPAR FOR SALE

un BUSPAR FOR SALE, Look, I am just as shaken as anybody by the scale of the Haitian disaster.  I have been urging people to donate money via what I consider the absolute best of relief organizations, Operation USA. BUSPAR mg, Do it and do it now. And if you live in the Los Angeles area, purchase BUSPAR online no prescription, BUSPAR brand name, and especially if you have any Web skills, consider coming Saturday to USC Annenberg for the Haiti Crisis Camp, purchase BUSPAR online. BUSPAR class, You can learn more and RSVP  here.

But as concerned as I am about the unfolding tragedy in Haiti, ordering BUSPAR online, Buy BUSPAR without a prescription, there's something, or better said, BUSPAR reviews, Buy BUSPAR online no prescription, many things about CNN's wall-to-wall coverage that stinks to high heaven.

As much as the televised stench burns my nostrils, I can't quite put my finger on what is exactly so maddening about it all; maybe you can help with some thoughtful comments and reactions, BUSPAR FOR SALE.

Meanwhile, order BUSPAR from mexican pharmacy, After BUSPAR, here's a few random thoughts. Don't expect them to be coherent as I have had a very long and demanding day, online buying BUSPAR hcl. Taking BUSPAR, First, it seems abundantly clear that CNN is just itching for mass rioting to break out, BUSPAR interactions. BUSPAR coupon, There are going to be a lot of disappointed cable execs who are spending all this money if uncooperative Haitians do nothing more dramatic than slowly and quietly perish. BUSPAR FOR SALE, I do find that downright pornographic. It's a sensation also captured and snappily expressed over at The Awl:

Not finding quite enough looting, order BUSPAR no prescription, BUSPAR recreational, CNN's getting really hungry for some potential future looting. (Related, BUSPAR images. Where can i buy cheapest BUSPAR online, "Almost all of the 4,000 inmates in the capital's main prison have escaped, online BUSPAR without a prescription. BUSPAR australia, uk, us, usa, 'They obviously took advantage of this disaster,' Marcal Izard, buy BUSPAR from canada, Order BUSPAR online overnight delivery no prescription, a spokesman for the International Red Cross, said." Yes, buy cheap BUSPAR no rx, Where can i buy BUSPAR online, why not hang tight in jail and just die of starvation?

I guess what is bugging me is the myopic nature of all this hyper-coverage.  Haiti is a county in which EIGHTY PERCENT of the population lives below the poverty line and where more than of them live in what is officially classified as abject poverty.  So what's all the crap from the media about fears that the Haitians are getting "desperate?" That the situation is "volatile." That "mass violence" is feared.

WTF, BUSPAR FOR SALE. Haiti has lived in a permanent state of desperation and violence for decades (and for most of that time under a violent family dictatorship directly supported by the U.S.) .It's a miracle there wasn't mass rioting every day of the week in Haiti.  And what would we expect people to do when they have no homes, BUSPAR price, Buy BUSPAR from mexico, no food, no shelter, herbal BUSPAR, About BUSPAR, no medicine while they watch their relatives get bulldozed into a mass grave. Loot, what is BUSPAR. Is that what you would do in their shoes after spending your previous life on 900 calories a day. Or would you send a text message from your iPhone to the Red Cross asking them to FedEx you some c-rations, please. BUSPAR FOR SALE, No hurry.

Wonderful today how the news cycle was dominated by the meme of "where is the food. where is the water?" A good question three days after a catastrophic earthquake. An even better question to have been asked any day of the week -- any day before the earthquake.

I have to give a hat tip to my daughter who Tweeted this earlier today:

@natashavc So looting is the ultimate marker of social collapse rather than infant mortality rate (which begins before any catastrophe). H8 U

I'm also getting goddamn tired of T-shirt clad Anderson Cooper chattering and stammering with T-shirt clad Doctor Sanjay Gupta as the camera zooms in and the doc places a bandage on the forehead of a  bleeding baby -- a baby that is likely to starve to death a day or two after the cameras turn elsewhere.  In a city where all the hospitals have collapsed, how does Doc Gupta find any time whatsoever to mug for the camera?  Isn't it enough that CNN correspondent Ivan Watson was grandstanding it on camera by holding the hand of a trapped and dying 11 year-old, BUSPAR FOR SALE. Can't we free up Sanjay to worry more about the Hippocratic Oath than the Nielsen ratings.

It's a totally legit news story for CNN or anyone else (we'll get to NBC in a moment) to zoom in on this or that dramatic and hear-rending rescue of one or another victim trapped in rubble. But every one of those stories is also a stark and rather sickening reminder of how the daily pre-earthquake deaths, starvation and deprivation were considered SO non-newsworthy.

What if CNN made a decision to send the staff of 40 reporters and producers it currently has in Haiti to go to a different Third World country for intensive reporting every ten days as as part of three-year Special Project to help its audience learn about the Real World.

I did switch over to MSNBC briefly yesterday and unfortunately caught a horrible five minutes with the insufferable Brian Williams BUSPAR FOR SALE, -- who had been airlifted into Port-Au-Prince in some neatly pressed chinos and some sort of Columbia SP45  shirt. Looked like he and his cronies were being somewhat less adventurous than CNN's AC, as Williams & Company were safely bunkered in a remote location. Williams had absolutely nothing to tell us, except that there were a lot of dead people all around. At his side, Ann Curry of the Today show --also decked out in a some sort of outdoors vest-- solemnly nodded. But the capper was seeing Al Roker, the weatherman, at their side!  Friggin' fantastic. I've only watched  Today while so heavily medicated in the CCU I didn't have the energy to click the channel button on the remote control, BUSPAR FOR SALE. But isn't Roker's specialty reading the weathercast off the TeLePrompTer and then congratulating someone in Kansas for his or her 103rd birthday. What the hell was he doing in Haiti. Couldn't NBC have at least saved his airfare and donated it instead to a relief fund?  When I look at these "correspondents" in their rough and tumble Adventureland garb, I wonder how much support staff there might be just off camera, making sure they are perfectly lit and made up.

The entire world is but a stage. And our TV news "reporters" are the comedians. No pun intended.

    “It’s a miracle there wasn’t mass rioting every day of the week in Haiti. ”

    I have a feeling you don’t really mean that, Marc.

    But I have to agree with your overall comment. In tone and content, much of CNN’s coverage is extremely nauseating…

  2. reg Says:

    I don’t think there’s any current broadcast journalist who does sanctimony better than Brian Williams…and it’s particularly effective if someone like Ann Curry is standing next to him to nod their head and knit their brow. As for Roker, he also has shows on the Weather Channel and the Food Network, so he’s probably down there multi-tasking.

    I saw a bit of Anderson Cooper kneeling next to someone who was trapped under debris, doing his AC schtick, and it was pretty creepy. Can’t watch this stuff.

  3. Rob Grocholski Says:

    You’ve hit upon a very good question — Disaster Porn?
    Fortunately I’ve been too busy to watch hardly any coverage on the tv. What little I have seen I think, sadly, seems to answers the question in the affirmative.

  4. Sergio Says:

    It (the pornsaster) makes money.

    Lots of money.

  5. Woody Says:

    Al Roker can reassure the Haitians that the weather is just fine, so not all the news is bad.

    Marc, you’ve been around enough to know the difference between “good journalism” in the theorectical sense vs. the real world. This is better to the networks than a car chase in L.A. or a fire at the lumber yard, neither of which is that important in people’s lives but fill some voyeuristic pleasure. It keeps the doors open.

    I’m meeting with a client today regarding his urgent need for money. He’s originally from Haiti and is flying down there Monday to help his family, many of whom are still missing. He called me at 11:00 PM last night, and it was extremely distressing to listen to his anxiousness, and that put a personal face on the disaster.

    I’m watching the news right now, and V.P. Biden and Sec. of Homestead Security Napolitano are at Homestead AFB and will shortly have a press conference to discuss their coordination of rescue efforts. We can rest easily. The system is working.

  6. Woody Says:

    Shhh. Biden is making his talk on Haiti now. Also, Hillary Clinton is on her way to Haiti. All is well.

    The politicians are just like journalists in seeking attention from disasters.

    The formula:

    Secrets of TV news: Confessions of an anchorman

    ….Here’s the formula. Highly trained Anchorman (booming authoritative, focus-group-tested voice at the ready) or better yet, Anchorwoman (compassionate voice and pouty face, furrowed brow at the ready), reads the headline, tosses to reporter. Hyperventilating reporter further frightens with victim sound bite, followed by sound bite from plaintiff attorney (”This poor victim needs to be compensated.”). Followed by politician sound bite (”I’m introducing legislation …”) followed by reporter tag, which may or may not include response from big, bad, deep-pocketed corporation. ….

    Another media response to the situation in Haiti:

    Keith Olbermann’s Week

    WEDNESDAY: When a terrible earthquake struck Haiti on Tuesday afternoon, Keith Olbermann was there, at his desk in New York City, 24 hours later, to tell us it was indeed terrible, to speculate wildly about future incidences of mob violence, and, in a comforting bid to return to normalcy, to get mad at Rush Limbaugh about the whole situation.

    …Before long, it was time to make the obvious connection between an appalling natural disaster in the poorest country in the Western hemisphere and an ongoing domestic-policy dispute in the richest. Because when you come down to it, this earthquake is really about health-care reform.

    …But no matter. Soon, like a salmon finding his way back upstream to spawn, Olbermann moved on to more familiar territory: bravely condemning Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh. ….

    THURSDAY: And another day, another opportunity to get really, really mad at Limbaugh. Olbermann somberly invoked “a 16th-century saxon jurist” in recounting his nemesis’s latest outrage: Questioning how the Red Cross distributes its aid money. “More inhumanity has been done by man himself than any other of nature’s causes,” Olbermann intoned, which was fair, because Rush Limbaugh questioning the Red Cross is a lot worse than the damage done by the earthquake itself. ….

  7. Woody Says:

    What are responsible sources covering in this time of disaster?

    Huffington Post: Lindsay Lohan Forgets Her Bra (PHOTOS)

    Why can’t they find someone responsible to set them on the right course?

    (Also, I know that you looked at the Lindsay Lohan photos, which proves what sells.)

  8. Rob Grocholski Says:

    A matter of interests or priorities, perhaps. The same Huffpo page linking to pix of Lindsay carries a short, decent essay by George Packer on the topic of Haiti: http://www.newyorker.com/talk/comment/2010/01/25/100125taco_talk_packer

  9. reg Says:

    Just to put scumbags in pespective, you’d have to be a complete idiot to go to Huffington Post and spot Lindsay Lohan’s name before you see the huge top of page Haiti headlines and links to numerous relief agencies. Or George Packer’s piece…assuming you knew who George Packer even is and had ever read him. Meanwhile on the website of the sleazy little troll and the sanctimonious GMRoper, one is treated to an essay that equates Rush Limbaugh’s AND President Obama’s response in the wake of this tragedy (“I could strangle both of them…)

    We’re not dealing with people who have even the slightest modicum of decency or sanity with these types – this is Glenn Beck territory from whence Roper, et. al. come. The hatred for Obama – even as he leads the country in organizing aid to the Haiti victims – is palpable and, frankly, near-iinsane. There’s no “let’s all forget politics and help the victims” actually coming from that “Corner” – there’s just an opportunistic attempt to distance oneself from Limbaugh while actually embracing the same line Limbaugh is pushing – Obama is using the earthquake to score politically and is “just as bad.” So on the one hand, here, Roper tries to equate jokes about Haitians with history lessons about Haiti, and on his own site he’s got a commentary up that equates Obama’s response to the quake with Limbaugh’s.

    These guys are degenerates and nothing more. They are among the hindquarter of this nation that thinks Sarah Palin is the answer to the country’s problems. We’re talking political derangement in service to crank ideology on the level of old-school Staliinists, LaRouchies, the sign-waving Birthers and Teabaggers with racist Obama cartoons, pix of the President as Hitler, etc. or the looneytoons of the John Birch Society who are coming back to join the hard-right-fest, CPAC.

  10. reg Says:

    A micro-world where Rob G is on the “Left-Wing” and TrollBoy represents “Conservatism” makes no sense whatsoever. (Of course, these types don’t represent conservatism, but right-wing know-nothing radicalism.) To balance out the Roper/Troll Boy types on the thread you really would have to import some of those occupying the craziest corner of KPFA, Cynthia McKinney’s campaign staffers or a hardcore contingent from an ANSWER demo. There’s really no competition or chance of “balance” in these circumstances at Cooperstown.

  11. Brad in SoCal Says:

    It’s interesting to note how many commenters here attempt to score points by putting down their “opponents” for point-scoring. That said, if we don’t like the “disaster protocols” of BW and AC and the rest of the MSM, we shouldn’t watch. Why should capitalism stop operating just because there’s a natural or man-made disaster? Ratings, people, ratings–the modern equivalent of bread and circuses. Sit back and enjoy the show, or else get on with changing it!

  12. Sergio Says:

    Well said, Brad.

  13. reg Says:

    Brad – these are internet comments. Get a grip. Are we supposed to let total bullshit just pass ? This is an entertainment site for the politically obsessed. Some folks do and have done a lot in the “real world”, including myself. Sergio even goes to a real TV studio to cheer on Bill Maher’s cynicism.

  14. Sergio Says:

    reg goes to drool on his mothers’s table at night.

    But not for long, boo hoo hoo..

    Meanwhile, back in the real world, Frank Rich exposes a GOP of which PT Barnum is surely the godfather and which, nefariously or naively (I’m not sure) manages to give affirmative action – not to mention grubby opportunism – a bad name simply by virture of their own “black leader” and “female frontrunner”:

  18. SideShow Bob Says:

    How do you loot a collapsed building?

    I don’t have cable so no CNN but I appreciate Brian Williams evening broadcast. The coverage helps people understand the seriousness of the situation and hopefully compels them to donate. I would hate that something this horrendous be given a short shrift but it sounds like CNN is a bit overboard.

    To put Haiti in perspective to healthcare

  20. reg Says:

    To put Haiti aid in perspective, it’s just a little bit more than the amount a SINGLE Bechtel contract (GOPer George Schultz, Chr. of the “Committee for Liberation of Iraq” was Pres. of Bechtel and is a current Director) went OVERBUDGET in Iraq.

  21. reg Says:

    This tragedy in Haiti suggests to me that two things need to happen – one is for some international agency – probably the UN in cooperation with USAID and the EU counterpart (although I would also like to see China directly involved in this, if they want to sit at the table with the “responsible folk”, as well as regional point people, which in the Caribbean should include Cuba’s medical professionals), a strategy and human resources should be put into place to respond effectively to natural disasters and similiar emergencies in countries that are poorly equipped to respond themselves. With that in place, a second “wave” aid strategy should be developed, wherein for countries like Haiti that have pretty much proven themselves helpless – whatever the complicated historical, economic, cultural or geographic reasons – reconstruction needs to be contingent and concurrent with certain standards being put into place that will serve the people after the world’s attention shifts elsewhere. I’m saying that crisis should be turned into a form of opportunity for international bodies to impose a higher level of regard for that country’s population and their futures. This is tricky and more easily said than done, but without better short-term intervention strategies for trained and prepared emergency teams and better long-term reconstruction strategies, what we are seeing on CNN and all the rest will become an endless cycle and the next disaster witll be equally disastrous. It’s obvious that the lack of a normal, day-to-day infrastructure, anything close to a modern economy and the inadequcies of governance in Haiti have made this tragedy even worse than it might have been. Even had this happened in the DR which shares the island, the consequences and prospects would likely not been as dire.

  22. Woody Says:

    Someone who thinks he’s smarter than he really is: This tragedy in Haiti suggests to me that two things need to happen – one is for some international agency – probably the UN….

    Why would anyone with a brain read past this point. (What an idiot.) But, I had to see more and it did get better.

    and the EU counterpart…China directly involved…Cuba’s medical professionals….

    Then, worse.

    for international bodies to impose a higher level of regard for that country’s population and their futures.

    Why don’t we just tax U.S. citizens for U.N. programs?

    And, how’s that U.N. and world thing coming along with Iran and its nuclear program? Why don’t we threaten Mother Earth with sanctions if there are any more earthquakes?

    To put healthcare corruption in perspective, buying off Sen. Landrieu cost over three times more than a major Iraq war contract overrun.

  23. reg Says:

    Blah, blah…nobody gives a shit about TrollBoy’s flatulence…

  24. Woody Says:

    Oh, yes. EVERYONE’S interested in gay boy’s briliance that Haiti will be protected by the U.N., with leadership from Europe, China, and Cuba. Such wisdom! And, hasn’t history shown the effectiveness of the U.N.!?

    It’s clear, again, that your only reply is a personal and false attack, when you’re trying to hide your pathetic ideas. Here…in more ways than one, you’re “number two.” – Internet Argument Techniques

  25. reg Says:

    Huh? – “gay boy’s brilliance” followed by “your only reply is a personal and false attack” – this is great stuff. Deep “number two”…

    Okay…feeding trolls is wrong and I’m falling back into that bad habit. Enough!

  26. Woody Says:

    Yeah, you promised not to read or respond to my comments, anymore — multiple times. Quit lying to us and yourself, especially when you have no rebuttles other than personal attacks, unlike myself, who actually offers reasons for disagreeing with you.

    Happy Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday! Why don’t you take the whole week off from commenting to celebrate it? I’m going to buy a package of Oreo Cookies to celebrate blacks and whites coming together for a common good.

  27. Woody Says:

    “TrollBoy’s flatulence”….and, you have the nerve to mock “great stuff?” You never present substance.

    I was curious as to your reasons how the U.N., assisted by Europe, China, and Cuba, was going to solve Haiti’s future problems. How has the U.N. beeg doing with problems in Africa?

    Don’t respond. You don’t have any good answers.

    Same old reg. No substance. Just name calling. Take the week off and try to compose an intelligent comment.

  31. reg Says:

    I’ll refer anyone who gives a shit back to the substance of my comment at 12:46 which defines the problem with Trollboy.

    Now go to hell, little gay-bashing, gutter-mouth.

  32. Brad in SoCal Says:

    Marc, if you get down this far in the comments (Do you usually/sometimes/always/never get this far?), I’m curious if you have a response to reg’s description of your site as “an entertainment site for the politically obsessed.” Hmm. Is that why people check in? I know I appreciate the thoughtful tenor of your posts (not just sucking up here!), while the comments do tend to veer into “entertainment.” Often the comments to Nation posts are similar in character. Seems like the internet is confirming what we knew long ago (with apologies to Thornton Wilder): When dealing with human beings, there are layers and layers of nonsense. What a herculean task to cut through all that! (sigh)

  33. reg Says:

    Marc has described this blog more than once as his “living room.” This is not, I’m sorry, one of the indispensable political commentary sites – it’s a good, interesting, quirky personal blog in which a guy who commits very serious journalism in various venues gets to use a lighter touch, blow off steam and muse spontaneously/anecdotally. Maybe I should have said “infotainment.” Sorry, Brad, that my comment gave you the vapors. IMHO you add a bit to the “layers of nonsense” – although given some of the racist, bigoted and/or insanely childish garbage that is allowed live on these comments threads, “nonsense” isn’t really a big deal – certainly not “Herculean” to ignore or skim through according to one’s taste and what anyone here long knows to expect from various commenters. Internet comments are what they are.

    Meanwhile, to veer back to substance, we need more conservatives like this one, who actually concern themselves with the values our country espouses

    http://tinyurl.com/yk8k7sq:

  34. reg Says:

    I’d be more interested, Brad, than your earnest efforts as an internet crossing guard, in what you actually think about comments like mine at 1/17 – 3:19. Or did you not bother to read that ?

  35. Woody Says:

    Don’t waste your time, Brad. And, if you don’t agree with reg, he’ll call you names.

  36. reg Says:

    Anyone who has serially accused another commenter – totally off-the-wall, out-of-his-ass and indicative of gutter-fixations – of being a child molester and “gay”(which isn’t actually pejorative, merely indication of brain-death and terminal bigotry on the point of a childish moron) should hide out in shame and ask God’s forgiveness rather than posting whiny crap such as the above.

    Shut the fuck up, asshole. Don’t expect freebies…

  37. Woody Says:

    If Martin Luther King, Jr. were alive today, he would say that he is outraged by reg’s gutter talk…and, he would pray that reg get over his insecurities and perversions and come clean.

  38. reg Says:

    No freebies – Woody has serially accused me of being a “child molester” when I’ve nailed his bigotry and believes that calling someone “gay” is a cute way of smearing them. He has posted several versions of racist cartoons depicting the President shining shoes, makes racist and homophobic jokes as a matter of course, and – probably the least of his offenses – thinks that linking to wing-nut blogs or posting total falsehoods is “argument. His only reason for coming here is to troll, defame and annoy. He’s a degenerate, a moron and a sorry excuse for a human being who doesn’t belong in the company of sane, decent people. That is the “perversion” on display here.

    I’ll restate this as many times as necessary until this little racist homphobic moron shuts the fuck up. Hopefully Marc will simply delete the tail end of this thread, which is of no interest to anyone. I refuse, however, to let this little slimeball have the last stinking gasp from the depths of his gutter.

  39. Woody Says:

    reg, no one wants to hear your whining and finger pointing. Grow up.

  40. Ahmed Says:

    Woody, you’re into a little kid anymore. Don;t make Marc who strikes up a libertarian attitude around here have to monitor you and scrub off your puke from these walls. Can you at least show a minimum level of decency here and stop with all “child molester” insinuations? No one comes here to read that stuff. Thanks

  41. reg Says:

    “Can you at least show a minimum level of decency here”

    This guy has proven time and time again that, no, he can’t…

    There are some people, frankly, that when you call them “moron”, “idiot”, “bigot”, “indecent”, etc. it’s not hyperbole. This is one of those cases – there’s no bottom, no shame, not even a modicum of self-awareness. His only refuge is to up the ante to shout stuff that’s a reflection of his own twisted little soul, his resentments and his obsessions. I’ve always thought this blog could use some actual conservatives to argue sensibly with the liberals and lefties, rather than right-wing dogmatists and clowns who summon up the know-nothingism of Sarah Palin or WorldNutDaily as “conservative”, but it’s increasingly evident that no only does the blog need a better class of “conservatives”, it needs a better class of troll.

  42. Marc Cooper Says:

    Please. Enough. Y’all said what u wanted to say about each other and we all got the point. Thanks.

    Brad, thanks.

    Reg’s description of this site is more or less suitable for me. You sorta get what you pay for in this world. And this blog is very much a personal hobby rather than an indispensable news site. Too much work!

  43. Woody Says:

    For the accurate record, if you look over the comments you will find that my remarks to reg consistently addressed his U.N. proposal — the same one that he soliticited Brad to review. Whatever Ahmed tossed in could only be found in reg’s above comments – not mine -and reg’s comments were totally personal attacks and did nothing to further discussion.

  44. Ahmed Says:

    Leaving aside the racist and homophobic banter which flow easily from your comments, I dont think that its unfair to call you out on the continuous “child molestor” evocation. I mean who comes to any political blog wanting to read that? That entire issue would be pretty traumatic for someone who lived through abuse and I dont think that Im some prissy PC robot if I ask you to have some good faith and stop it. Its pathetic and weird. Also how do you square your claim that “you will find that my remarks to reg consistently addressed his U.N. proposal” with a few quotes from you, all recent ones?

    “and, he would pray that reg get over his insecurities and perversions and come clean.”

    “I hope that a certain person on this site has a problem with that.” (as to scott ritter)

    “His concern was that it was brought up rather than it happened. Does it matter that a young girl was the target rather than little boys?”

  45. Woody Says:

    Ahmed, give it a rest. Your cherry-picking completely ignores the substance of my remarks and the lack of substance of reg’s. Now, please respect Marc enough to stop taking up offenses for the real offender.

  46. reg Says:

    You lying little weasel – you injected the same serial attacks on me as a “child molester” into an adjacent thread that you have on Celeste’s blog. Where this diseased ranting comes from is something between you and God or a psychiatrist.
    The thing that’s “most” disgusting about the Troll is his cowardice when he’s nailed on his puerile and putrid transgressions. The Eddie Haskell syndrome multiplied by some astronomical number.

    Being a moron is, perhaps, not someone’s fault. But all of the lying, sidestepping and dancing around disgusting shit is a choice.

  47. Woody Says:

    God bless you, reg. I’m praying for you.

  48. reg Says:

    God doesn’t hear Eddie Haskell’s prayers…

  49. e_y Says:

    Marc: you’re on the money. The matter of CNN’s domestic branch coverage for the American audience (we don’t all get to see their generally better-toned international service, so I don’t know how they are framing things, there) is maddening, as you say, because it is so very clever.

    All you have to do is go to the Anderson Cooper blog, though, and read all the adoring comments about what an Uberman Cooper is, and the giant photos of his helping the bleeding little boy with blood gushing down the kid’s face and body, and then watch the video, later, as Anderson carries him away in his buffed biceps – in order to get an odd vibe from how CNN, and even Cooper, I must say, is portraying all of this.

    An hour ago I saw Mr “Keeping Them Honest” talking from the ground about his witnessing the near riot, and although the clip probably won’t be repeated, and the language on his blog is far milder, he literally referred to the young men looting the candles (to resell them, he tells us) as “profiting from the despair of others.” Obviously, that coming from any reporter on CNN is laughable, but it also points to why they’re steering clear of any discussion of our policy in Haiti in recent history — they dismiss it as being beside the point. You know: now people are dying, so let’s not ask why there was no infrastructure in the first place. CNN is now “SAVING HAITI” in big letters. It’s aimed at our chauvinistic tendencies, and, yeah, it really sucks

    They can tell us that they bring the world’s attention to this pocket of despair, but what took? They’re making a lot of sudden money on CNN due to this sudden crisis, one can see that from all the new and very, very frequent ads, on there. Okay, they can make money, or they can make money while broadcasting crap amid the actual information they provide, then say that they do good, good , good because Dr. Gupta is there, performing surgeries… but the Mafia gives away money, all the time. We can presume that Dr. Gupta, being the great humanitarian he assuredly is (as we have been assured by CNN, constantly, for some many months), that the good doctor would be down there, right now, anyway, even if he weren’t on CNN.

    If you misrepresent a culture, or misrepresent why something befalls them whilst you rake it in, then that’s, obviously, a bit criminal. I’m almost sure Larry King doesn’t like this kind of reportage, but I’ve a feeling he’s rare, and they’ve pushed him into high hukster mode for years on CNN, anyhow. There’s a desperate superiority being shilled on CNN, and maybe it’s an indication that their business model can’t compete with better ways of reporting the news, and reporting why things happen.

    More on those Cuban doctors that reg admires…and, possibly why.

    Cuba Begins Peforming State-Sponsored Sex-Change Operations

    Stop being an attention fiend. You said that you were staying on topic and I produced three quotations where you continue the perverse child molestor claim. On a thread involving a human tragedy of immese proportions, which has now killed so many, and rendered more devastated, homeless and in pain you tlak about sex change operations and scott ritter. You are a christian you claim, who obviously fails to take seriously the Sermon on the mount. Actually you arent much of a christian nor anything else but a sad, sack of shit parading of a human being so bereft of minimal compassion that you’ve rendered yourself of no value to anyone. Later, Woody

  52. Woody Says:

    Actually, Cuban doctors were on topic. Reg, himself, raised them as part of the solution to helping Haiti. Your attack on me, on the other hand, is not on topic.

  53. Ahmed Says:

    Okay, whatever I’ll reply. The issue of Cuba doctors and their role in Haiti is wholly unrelated to what you brought you, of state sponsored sex change operations which is actually a policy in other places in the world, too. You’re again being juvenile and adolescent in a thread about the death of so many thousands of civilians. I find that insanely staggering. More so, I quoted you in these two threads about Haiti, bandying about the child molestor thing three times. That’s dusgraceful, dude, Why don’t you at least fess up about it and move on with your focus?
