This was something else. Anybody who thinks that the American mainstream media has any objectivity in it whatsoever should have to explain this.
From Yahoo Answers:
Did you have LOL at that CNN reporter digging for Egyptians to praise Obama for the revolution but couldn’t?
find any??? They all were like “Obama did nothing, we would have done this no mater who was President of your country” others were like “Obama did nothing in this revolution, if anything he just switched sides.” Then at the end the reporter gave up and signed off like, “It’s clear to say Egyptians have grown so excited now that Obama has thrown his support behind their cause” LOL it was pathetic
And one of the comments was:
I did! He tried over and over and over to find even one Egyptian who would praise the liberal messiah but found none. They could care less about him. He’s just as irrelevant there as he is here.
Someone else said:
That’s liberal journalism at its finest. lol First Obama tried to take credit for telling Mubarak to leave and when no one bought that the journalists have to jump in and try and save him.
Rush Limbaugh has a lot more to say about this (of course!).
I haven’t found the Youtube of this Nic Robertson piece yet. I can imagine CNN hopes no one EVER finds it. But when I do, I’ll post it here as an update.
What I DID find was the CNN transcript of this “breaking news” report. Look the following over, read what Rush says about it, and then you tell me if Rush Limbaugh is mischaracterizing it in any way, shape or form:
HALA GORANI, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Are you able to — I don’t know if those in the square are aware that President Obama spoke about them and told the world, Egyptians have inspired us today.
NIC ROBERTSON, CNN SENIOR INTERNATIONAL CORRESPONDENT: Well, let me, let me — Hala, let me to talk to a couple of people who are with me right now.
Ahmed (ph), you have been down here on the square for many days. The United States, the international community just listened to President Obama say that he will support, America will support Egypt if it wants help and assistance and hopes that there will be a good transition for jobs for the young people.
What would your message be for President Obama?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Actually, we’re very sad from Obama’s actions that he sometimes support the government, sometimes support the people.
We cannot actually (INAUDIBLE) his support. He serves for his own purposes. And for the youth, and we and the Egyptian people seek for our freedom and democracy. Any democratic country should seek for the best for the people, not for its own purpose.
ROBERTSON: And right now, President Obama is saying that he will give Egypt and the young people of Egypt whatever assistance they want if they want it and if they ask for it. Do you need assistance from the United States?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: For sure at the start of our revolution to build up the country again from the (INAUDIBLE) by the bad people here. We surely would need support for the first time, first year at least. But then I think we will be a country that depends on itself, and even should give support to other countries.
ROBERTSON: Thank you very much.
Just one moment again.
Mustafa (ph) — Mustafa is joining me now.
Mustafa, you’ve been a doctor in the hospital here. We have just heard President Obama say that he wants to extend support and assistance to Egypt and Egyptians if they want any, and he hopes that there are more jobs for young people in the future.
What is your message for President Obama?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, my message for President Obama is just, we started this revolution without any outside help, and we are going to finish it also without any outside help.
Of course, I’m thanking him for his spiritual support, but we don’t need any other extra support from him. I just want to say that this is just the beginning of the revolution. If everyone stayed for the next six months until the next presidential election, with this spirit (INAUDIBLE) here in the square, that means we are going to finish the road the right way.
We have seen everyone here in the street for the last two weeks. It was just marvelous. Everyone is doing (INAUDIBLE) job, doctors, workers, even little children who cleans the street. Everyone was supported by their own feelings. So, we can continue, and this is just the beginning.
ROBERTSON: And President Obama, especially important, said it was important that it went — had been peaceful mostly so far, and that it’s important that it continues peacefully, this revolution. Can it continue peacefully, do you think?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, that only depends on who is going to — who is going to be in charge here. The military is in charge. The military is having to use assistance from the Egyptian people.
So I think if the military kept being in charge for only the next six months, that would be great. Other than that, it’s going to be chaos. There’s one thing I’m afraid of is that, yes, in Tahrir Square, everything was perfect. But we lack leadership. I’m sorry to say this, but that’s the truth. We lack leadership. And right now, we need to develop some leadership, which is going to take us to the road of democracy for the next six months.
ROBERTSON: Where are you going to find those leaders? You’re young people. You came together through the Internet. You’ve been inspired. You’ve shown solidarity, support here. But where do you find those leaders?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, I’m afraid we have to find them. They are available, but for the last decades, there was no political scene in Egypt, so every leadership was demolished. So, that’s the problem we’re having right now. And that’s why we need this conditional six- month period for anticipation that this is only a transitional period.
ROBERTSON: Are you pleased that President Obama has come out however now and said he supports this change and supports the people and supports the young people and what they have done?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, actually, President Obama’s views were kind of conflicting during the last weeks.
But now that he’s saying that he is supporting the change, that’s a good thing after all. I’m sure that, after all, he’s pro-democracy. After all, he just can’t be pro anything else.
ROBERTSON: Mustafa, thank you so much.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: OK.
ROBERTSON: And, hopefully, no more casualties in your clinic –
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Thank you.
ROBERTSON: So, Hala, the view from here is one of very happy now to hear that President Obama has swung s behind the people here.
“The view from here” that Nic Robertson is talking about is the view of a man with his head shoved as far up his own ass as it can possibly go. Sorry to be crude, but I’m just saying.
Do I even need to ask the question if CNN would be out furiously digging for Egytians willing to praise the president if that president’s name were, oh, George Bush? Or name your Republican? Rather, you know that the mainstream media would be crawling around like cockroaches searching for any scene that denounced Bush. It’s the script. It’s what CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC et al do for a living day in and day out.
Joseph Goebbels must be furious with CNN as his corpse spins demonically in the grave. They are not good at their propaganda craft, even in spite of all their years of practice. Rather, CNN has drank so much of its own Kool Aid that they just blithely assumed that the Egyptian people would be as eager to give Obama credit for the uprising as the mainstream media was. And then they put a couple of people in front of the camera, trusting in their progressive liberal assbackward view of the world that these men would sing a beautiful operatic sonnet about how magnificent Obama is, and they’re like, “Why are you wasting our time asking us questions about this useless turd?”
If Goebbels’ “news media” had done a story on, say, how the people of Poland loved and welcomed their new fuhrer, they would have known that the people of Poland despised their new fuhrer. And so as they grabbed some poor Pole out of the crowd, there might have been a few kidney punches to encourage him to tell the world how wonderful the Fuhrer is and all that. But again, CNN just guzzled down their own Kool Aid and just ASSUMED that surely the people of Egypt must adore the Hussein as much as CNN does. And what they say happens when you “ass-sume” remains true. Because those Egyptian people rather clearly made a real ass out of CNN.
The Antichrist, the beast, is coming. And the mainstream media will adore him even more than it adores Barack Obama.
P.S. For all the mainstream media’s glorified depiction of the Egyptian uprising as a bunch of George Washington’s heroically fighting for freedom while gratefully singing praises to Barack Obama for making the whole thing possible, the actual reality continues to be a very different thing. Case in point: the female CBS reporter who was badly beaten and sexually assaulted in front of Egyptian women and members of the Egyptian military.
