CNN IGNORES NED LAMONT'S VICTORY SPEECH
In our effort to reclaim our Democracy from the Sick Far Right, we have some high hurdles. Besides the blatant positive coverage of Sen. Lieberman's campaign and the negative portrayal of Ned Lamont, the MSM has other ways to maintain crowd control. As the previous post's illustrates one of their tricks is to NOT show what other people from around the world see.
Last night's coverage by CNN of Sen. Joe Lieberman's defeat at the hands of Conneticut's Democrats shows just how far CNN will go to delude the public.
As usual, last night the loser of an election came on 1st to give a concession speech. 1st came the chanting WE WANT JOE"! WE WANT JOE!" Then the loser Lieberman came out and gave a long winded speech vowing to fight on. You could watch it on C-SPAN and CNN. CNN showed just about the whole speech, save about the last minute.
A bit later Ned Lamont came out to the cheers of his supporters. If you were watching C-SPAN you saw it. If you were watching CNN you saw something else. As Mr. Lamont delivered a fine Victory speech, CNN played a fluff piece on Sen. Lieberman that they had shown earlier.
Not one second of Ned Lamont's speech was shown on CNN. MSNBC did cut away from their scheduled program and showed a bit of Lieberman's speech. No coverage of Ned Lamont's speech was shown by them either.
With this type of muscle behind the Bush Regime I think it was a wonder Ned Lamont won last night. Why did he win? Because now more than ever, progressives are uniting to take our country back from the Sick Far Right. And you can rest assured the MSM will redouble it's efforts to defeat us. In just the last hour or so, CNN has mentioned Sen. Lieberman's name dozens of times. As usual, in a favorable light. Ned Lamont's name is barely mentioned. When they do, it is with a negative light. Just now at the top of the hour(9am) they started with a clip of Sen. Lieberman's speech and once again nothing of Mr. Lamont's speech.
There is only one answer to the MSM propaganda. WE NEED TO GET LOUDER. WE NEED TO PUT WHAT EVER SUPPORT WE CAN BEHIND PROGRESSIVE CANIDATES.
This morning Mr. and Mrs. Human, who are far from rich, sent Mr. Lamont's campaign $100.00. Last night Sen. Lieberman called for outside state support. This morning I promise you, I and Lil Joe will be going to Connecticut.. To support Ned Lamont.
If you helped win the Primary, a LEFT HANDED HI 5 TO YOU! But that was just the 1st half. The referees have shown who they favor to win. Let's show them whose stadium they are in.
