Murdoch rag compares Greenwald to Nazi propagandist

November 5, 2005 12:19 PM

This is beyond obscene: "Instead of a response from the retailer, “Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price” (which is receiving a vanity booking in theaters before hitting DVD on Nov. 14) edits in promotional footage of Wal-Mart CEO Lee Scott in a way that holds him up to ridicule - a low-blow technique that would bring a smile to Joseph Goebbels."

I get why the NY Post hates us and will trash every film that is even remotely associated with Robert Greenwald... but the nerve to pull a Nazi reference. Robert's jewish for chrissakes.

Eh... I'm supposed to login to read the screed in full from the New York Post. I guess that's so they can check me against their database of likely Republican voters and assign me to the slow server.

Damn you, Muuurdooooccchhhh!! (He really is evil, you know.)

Anyways, how come conservatives get to call people fascists, but liberals aren't allowed to, even if the targets of our ridicule really are fascists? It's all about "balance".

You see, it's not fair to call people fascists, when they already have to carry the burden of actually *being* fascists. It's a double whammy. No fair at all. But, it's OK to call American patriots fascists. Because, they are strong. They can handle it.

It's journalistic balance. I thought you knew all about that journalism stuff, Jim.

For instance, you need more balance on this blog. It's all truth. What's up with that? You need to balance it with some *lies*. Capisci?

Eh... I had a couple glasses of wine tonight. I'm starting to understand this journalism stuff all too well...
