A Word to el presidente Chavez: "HuGo to hell!"

From the LA Times yesterday:
Chavez drew tentative giggles at times from the audience, but also some applause when he called Bush the devil.
That ticked me off more than Chavez' unstatesmanlike language.

For a more accurate translation of "sulfur" in Chavez' speech, go visit Freedom Eden. And here's the book Chavez really wants you to read:

Hat tip for the photoshop: Free Republic

More at Mike's America. A rarity: Marie's Two Cents praises Rangel (perhaps hell hath, indeed, frozen over).

Video at HotAir, of course, of Hugo Chavez' UN speech.

Flopping Aces with a good rant & roundup.

Check this out: The Intellectual Origins of America-Bashing by Lee Harris. Hat tip: Dennis Prager. His radio broadcast relevant to this and the UN.

Love the cartoon. Yes, Chavez is indeed confused!

I can't possibly visit all those links. It's hard enough to get here, Wordsmith. I'm having a heck of a time with this dial up. So much so that I've finally done the research and found out I can get a LAN connection to the internet. They come to hook me up next Thursday. Yay!

Sorry Marie. I knew you weren't "ready to make nice" with the likes of Rangel.

Folks might find this bit on Markos of Daily Kos fascinating, in regards to how the leftist blogosphere is reacting.

*sounds of crickets chirping*..

That's what is being heard around the leftista's blogosphere in regards to their 'former' BFF (Best Friend Forever) - Chavez - when he turned and bit them in the ass.

Karl Rove couldn't have planned a better sting...

Im Not getting Involved Again! There Too Many Of You! Can I Ask A Question Though? Do You Guys Watch FOX news as you main information source? Cause I Do Have To Say It Is Not exactly Objective In Its Reporting/

Im Not getting Involved Again! There Too Many Of You!

Don't worry. You posted off-topic and in an "old" post. I doubt anyone is interested in coming in here for yesterday's post. And by posting your comment, you are getting involved again, buddy.

Can I Ask A Question Though?

That was a question.

Ok...go ahead and ask another:

Do You Guys Watch FOX news as you main information source? Cause I Do Have To Say It Is Not exactly Objective In Its Reporting/

You cannot be serious?! Is that a serious question? Look at all my posts for crying out loud. How often am I citing from FOX? Click on the links. They are fairly diverse.

Uh...yeah, I do watch FOX.

I am not a fan of TV news. But I love following all the mainstream channels, just to watch for the bias. I visit Crooksandliars as often as I would visit Ian's Exposetheleft for videos on tv news segments that they find interesting. And I flip between channels and catch CSPAN, CNN, MSNBC, local news, and so on.

It's funny how if you are on the right, you must listen to Rush, FOX, Hannity and O'Reilly. It boggles the mind. Fox is right of center. But they are more to the center than most other stations. This is the same network that broke the story of President Bush's drunk driving citation, moments before the 2000 election.

Ok, so conservatives have FOX news and talk radio. So what? Meanwhile, you have CNN, NBC, the CBC, the BBC, CBS (see BS), PBS, NPR, the NY Times, the LA Times, the Washington Post, and on and on. You guys on the left can only cite FOX. I'll concede that, proudly. But it baffles me when folks on the Left fail to acknowledge that there is liberal media bias.

Tell me: Do you know who Eason Jordan is? Do you know why he is no longer with CNN? Did you know that CNN admitted to not running negative news stories on Saddam, but turned aside from reporting on his atrocities, just so they could keep a news bureau in Baghdad? Did you know that similarly, AP and Reuters photojournalists and writers in Palestine, also misrepresent the news? Read Stephanie Gutmann's "The Other War".

How many consecutive frontpage stories did the NY Times run on Abu Ghraib?

What do you know about Rathergate?

How many anti-war, anti-Bush stories did 60 Minutes run with, prior to 2004?

Have you been brought up to speed on Plamegate? And which paper pushed that story?

Did you pay attention to the Reuters' photos during the recent Hezbollah-Israel conflict?

the Center for Media and Public Affairs found that John Kerry got more positive press than any other presidential candidate in the last quarter century, in an analysis of 500 news stories.

the Project for Excellence in Journalism and the Pew Research Center have found bias.

A number of studies polling journalists find that the majority of journalists admit to either voting Democrat, or consider themselves independants...and yet, surprise! Vote democrat. The last one I looked at was a UCLA study.

Oh, and uh...this may be news to you but...pssst: Hello!?!!? I read blogs!

Word, you were faster on the draw than I...This Time.

The sad truth that Word so carefully laid the foundation for in the previous post is that for all intent and purpose - the MSM has abandoned any front of objectivity. My opinion is that idea of reporting the story and NOT an agenda was lost early on in the history of news reporting.

Today, with the ease of options as to how you access your news & information simply puts a spotlight on the bias (right or left) that pervades the MSM.

Love the cartoon. Come take a peek on my blog at my analysis of Chavez. I even laughed at myself (doesn't happen often).

Keep up the great work!

Rats! No reply yet from Bunchuk. I was really looking forward to it.

Interesting in the wake of the Clinton attack on Fox News that Bunchuk would ask such a question.

I'll vouch for Wordsmith's diverse sources of news and opinion. I've had more than one email exchange where we're both watching Meet the Press repeats Sunday night.

My goodness, Wordsmith even posted on a CNN (Clinton News Network) story a few weeks ago.

I'd like to ask Bunchuk a question or two if I may?

Bunchuk: Do you watch Fox News? If so, how often? What percentage of your news gatering includes Fox News?

I'd also like to know if you have ever listened to Rush Limbaugh? If so, when was the last time and how long did you listen?
