The Corporate Media Earn This Week's BuzzFlash GOP Hypocrite Award By Their Steadfast Commitment to Not Being Journalists: "Never mind that only 11% of Americans -- that's right, just 11% -- support an escalation of troop levels in Iraq, the mainstream media has adopted the concept of a PR word -- 'surge' -- as if it were a wad of gum stuck to their butts."

So Many Republican Hypocrites, So Little Time


The Corporate Media

Welcome back to the BuzzFlash GOP Hypocrite of the Week.

You can get worn down by having a mainstream press whose sole qualification seems to be taking stenography.

Profits and global economic dominance of American business demand that the corporations behind big media support a bankrupt policy of American "victory" at any cost.

In this sense, for the Busheviks and the mainstream media, victory means only one thing: America can never surrender control of the world's marketplaces and its natural resources.

So years after Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld lied us into a war to further that goal -- and years after Bush declared mission accomplished and the major military operations in Iraq over and done with, the corporate press is still treating him as a credible leader.

Never mind that only 11% of Americans -- that's right, just 11% -- support an escalation of troop levels in Iraq, the mainstream media has adopted the concept of a PR word -- "surge" -- as if it were a wad of gum stuck to their butts.

The corporate media rides the wave of every news cycle with no historical memory or context when it comes to the Busheviks. Because the CEOs, boards of directors, and shareholders maintain the same interests of economic dominance of the world at any cost, including 3,000 Gis dead, more than 50,000 wounded, more than 600,000 Iraqis dead, and hundreds of billions of our tax dollars spent on war profiteering.

The corporate press has become the top news itself, because the top news story is that they are still going along with the delusional fantasies of an executive branch that is impaired by failed dreams of empire and a President who is a sociopath.

It's the most fundamental of hypocrisies to pretend that you are reporting the news, when you are just a megaphone for the same basic spin of lies that have been repackaged for years.

Big media isn't journalism; it's a big PR department for corporate interests and the Republican Party. They can even make a psychopath look like a leader.

Until next week, remember our motto: So many Republican hypocrites, so little time.


This is Corporate Media's first GOP Hypocrite of the Week Award.
