CBS Headline: Meet Iran's George W. Bush


By way of Gateway Pundit:

CBS compares Iran's Holocaust denier, womens right's abuser, America-hating radical to George W. Bush.

CBS republishes vile New Republic article--
Meet Iran's George W. Bush




On June 12, Iranian voters will choose among four leading candidates for president, but their real choice is singular: whether to continue on the course plotted by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. This ought to be a no-brainer: Ahmadinejad has made a mess of the economy, clamped down on political dissent and social freedoms, militarized the state, and earned the enmity of much of the world. In large Iranian cities, even those who voted for him in 2005 are almost unanimous in their disappointment. But in Iranian elections, demographics are everything. It all depends on who, exactly, shows up to the polls.


And now they can draw phony comparisons about "stolen election". Since the article was published prior to this weekend, it decided to draw comparisons to the U.S. 2004 Election:
Mousavi is not Iran's Barack Obama. He's more like John Kerry, and this election year is strikingly like 2004 in the United States. The incumbent president is deeply unpopular at home and abroad. He came to power with a dubious mandate, but governed in a polarizing fashion that has divided even his one-time allies. Iranians have paid the price in every area of life that is touched by the government. The election is Mousavi's to lose--but to win it, he will need to unite a divided opposition, and inspire at least a few of the beleaguered urban voters who have stopped going to the polls.

I am so disgusted with CBS right now!! First the whole debacle with David Letterman's attacks on Palin's daughter with absolutely no repercussions and now this. Unbelievable!!

I thought NBC, (National Barackcasting Company) was bad but this borders on total media lunacy!

There is no excuse for this and if Obama had the first bit of integrity he would condemn this. But since he has no integrity then I do not expect him to come out against it.

CBS the Communist Barackcasting System

What do you say Wordsmith, I'm all shocked out.

Have you seen the latest numbers on the CBS evening news? Katie Couric is in real danger of slipping below O'Reilly in viewership.

You can compare Bush to a great many things, but wow. This is a new low for journalism.

AND, Drudge is reporting ABC will be REPORTING FROM THE BLUE ROOM doing nothing but pro-nationalized healthcare news with Charlie Gibson.
Is this AMerica, or did they move her and we got left behind?

As Z so aptly points out, now ABC will be anchoring news from the INSIDE of the WHITE HOUSE.

Why doesn't Charlie Gibson and all ABC Execs just unzip Mr Obama's fly and go to town; it's the same thing.

Hell, form a line; most ALL American media is fellating Mr Obama.

My first thought was that they were equating Bush with Ahmanutjob in the sense that they think both are maniacal menaces to the world. That was bad enough. But to see that it's the "stolen election" they're harping on... Geez Louise!!! These people are insane!
