Another Media Hypocrisy

~ Jay
It may be the photos that America doesn’t want to be seen, but that doesn’t stop the MSM from showing them. It looks like more photos of the same incident, yet the media are immediately publishing them, and the ACLU are excited! As a matter of fact, we can thank them for the new release. Neither the ACLU or the MSM are concerned with any consequences from the release.

The photos were obtained under freedom of information laws by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and broadcast on the Australian documentary programme Dateline.

“The photographs have to be released so the public have some idea of what happened at Abu Ghraib,” ACLU lawyer Amrit Singh told SBS on the programme.

“It is for the public to decide on looking at them what needs to be done.”

The public has seen enough, and while a simple description of the photos could have been satisfactory to the court of public opinion, the international media decided that graphic photos should be released instead. And the “hate America groups” are eating it up!

The first time was a shock, and the media ran the photos in headlines for over 300 straight days. We have to point out the hypocrisy, and the major difference in the MSM’s behavior towards these photos in comparision to the Danish cartoons of Mohammad.
Tim Blair is on the same page.

“They won’t publish cartoons, but they will run anything they can get out of Abu Ghraib. Both sets of images provoke Islamic anger; note how the media behaves when that anger is directed at them.”
