Another Day Of Infamy: ABC’s Diane Sawyer And Vile Leftwing Pseudo-News Propaganda

Here’s the story:

ABC’s Sawyer Says Palin “Targeted” Gabby Giffords In Special On Congresswoman
Posted on November 15, 2011

In an hour-long special on Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Arizona) and her miraculous recovery, ABC’s Diane Sawyer ruined it in a segment about the Congresswoman’s political future.

Sawyer praised the Congresswoman as being “upbeat” during the “unsettling” 2010 campaign season in which she received “vitriol” from her constituents. Sawyer then linked these events to someone shooting her office door while including a sound of a gun being shot. Continuing, Sawyer says Giffords was “targeted” by Sarah Palin. Cue video of Palin speaking and the ad which had a cross-hair on Giffords’ district. Transcript below:

DIANE SAWYER: “So does Gabby Giffords really want to go back to Washington? Back where she was once called ‘the most positive person in Congress.’

“Staying upbeat, even during the unsettling campaigns of 2010. When we all watched opposition sometimes become vitriol. After she voted for health care, she faced people in her district calling her a ‘traitor,’ booing her in town halls.

[gun shot]

“Someone even fired a gun into her office door. And you may remember Sarah Palin targeted her district with an ad that had a gun sight on it.”

Allow me to tell you what I remember:

First and foremost, Sarah Palin did not use a “gun sight.”  That is a documented lie.  Sarah Palin used a surveyor’s symbol:

Palins-Facebook-map

The icons placed on strategic Congressional districts throughout the U.S. were interpreted as cross hairs or gun sights. Devonia Smith at the Examiner says they’re neither; they’re surveyor’s symbols:Surveryorsymbol

Now, aside from the fact that saying it this way makes Diane Sawyer a liar and a propagandist, I suppose it is true that calling it a “gun sight” rather than a “surveyor’s symbol” sounds more provacative.

Fact number two: If you want to know who has actually used “gun sights” to target their opposition, Ms. Sawyer, why didn’t you point out the Democratic Leadership Committee’s use of gun sights to target Republicans?

The map appears on this page of the Democratic Leadership Committee website (dated 2004 during the Bush years). I guess we could argue over whether the DLC counts as “senior party officials” but they’re certainly as much a part of the party as Palin who, after all, currently holds no elected office. …

Fact number three: Bob Beckell, liberal Democrat strategist, has long boasted that he created the targeted district concept.  Why didn’t you acknowledge that fact, Ms. Sawyer, you liberal propagandist witch???

But there’s a fourth fact that Diane Sawyer and ABC would have mentioned – given that they decided to drag Sarah Palin into this – if they had so much as a scintilla of integrity or objectivity in their little cockroach souls: Sarah Palin was by far and away the only one to “target” Gabrielle Giffords.  And the liberal who DID target Giffords also went so far as to say the words “she’s dead.”:

Update, January 9: I would like liberals who blame the “toxic rightwing rhetoric” for the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords to respond to this little factoid:

The website Daily Kos has also deleted a diary about Rep. Gabrielle Giffords entitled “My Congresswoman Voted Against Pelosi, Now She’s Dead To Me,” but so far has not deleted a post by founder Markos Moulitsas that lists Giffords’ district among those on their “target list,” and noted that “Not all of these people will get or even deserve primaries, but this vote certainly puts a bulls eye on their district.” (emphasis ours).

Please explain to me why Sarah Palin’s use of surveyor symbols or whichever angry conservative comments resulted in Gabrielle Giffords being shot rather than leftwingers putting her on their “bulls eye” “target list,” or influential liberals like Moulitsas saying that Giffords is “dead to me.” Because I’d really like to know.

If you click on the links, you will see that somebody wisely kept a record of the truth that the vile left dishonestly tried to purge.  Even as they shrilly demonized Sarah Palin for doing a tiny fraction of what they themselves had done.

Nobody is more responsible than our journalists for creating the hell that America has become.  As godawful as Democrats are, they have the right to be partisan.  Journalists have a constitutionally-imposed duty to serve as impartial watchdogs – and they decided to become leftwing propagandists instead in an act that poisoned this country with a constant barrage of carefully selected lies.

Why did Diane Sawyer decide to demonize Sarah Palin so unfairly and so divorced from factual reality?  Why did she go after Palin and refuse to go after Joe Biden (remember how Obama lectured us to be more civil in our language?)  And yet the very next day after Giffords’ was interviewd, Joe Biden said to unions:

“Folks, you fired the first shot.”

You know, rather like Jared Loughner fired the first shot into Gabrielle Giffords’ skull…

Why not bring something like that up instead?  You know, unless you are a far-left Joseph Goebbels-style propagandist???

Satan masquerades as an angel of light (2 Cor 11:14) while he deceives billions of human beings into hell.  And these demonic minions of the mainstream media sweetly smile at you and lie like the hell they are filled with while they’re doing it.

If the media reported fairly, accurately and honestly, the Democrat Party would have gone the way of the Dodo bird a long time ago.  One day Diane Sawyer and all the “journalists” like her will burn in hell.

  1. YouSay Says:

    Diane Sawyer is about as Right-Wing and Conservative as it gets. She never met a big business she didn’t let take her up the rump.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    Oh, is that the definition of right wing?

    So Barack Obama, who is in bed with GE, is right wing? And when Obama gave one of his donors $535 million in government money (after giving the auto company billions upon billions of dollars that we’ll never get back) that went down a black hole that was right wing? When Obama played the same game you’re playing to demonize conservatives while touting Jon Corzine – who has proven himself to be more of a scumbag than ANYBODY – was that “conservative”?

    Here’s something interesting for your consideration: Wall Street “fatcats” have fared FAR better in just 2 1/2 years under Obama (raking in $83 billion) than they fared under Bush in EIGHT years ($77 billion). Which means that apparently Obama is actually vastly more “conservative” than Bush was, on your truly asinine view of reality.

    You truly are ignorant, Mr. You Say. You have the most naive concept of “liberalism” imaginable. Every time I talk to a liberal, I walk away shaking my head in amazement at what fools you people are.

    As a conservative, I want small, limited government that embraces laissez faire capitalism. Government and business aren’t in bed together under a conservative system; government isn’t taking in huge money from business because government has put itself in the position to make or break any business or any industry which forces businesses to make these giant political payoffs. No, it is YOUR LIBERALISM that guarantees that a giant big government that has all kinds of power can dictate all kinds of influence over business – and that business will therefore necessarily spend billions and billions of dollars to try to influence such an all-powerful government. I know that many Republicans cave in under a system that was “fundamentally transformed” by FDR and government unions running amok in every branch of government; but the fact of the matter is that we conservatives want government influence OUT of business and bussiness bribes OUT of government – while you liberals want more of both.

    Lastly, Barack Obama has taken more money from Wall Street than ANYBODY in the history of politics. You know, the most liberal Senator who became the most liberal president.

    Wake up and grow up, You Say.

    What a dumbass.

  3. HL Says:

    Michael, I could not agree more with your assessment of the main stream media. THEY are wicked liars and propagandists.
    People who get their information from them WANT to be deceived and manipulated at this point.

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    HL,

    I fully agree with your view: “People who get their information from them WANT to be deceived and manipulated at this point.” It comes right out of the Bible: “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” — Romans 1:18-20

    People want to believe lies and be deceived, and God gives them over to deception.

    Unfortunately, many people KNOW that the mainstream media are nothing but propagandists. And then they watch it anyway, believing that they will somehow be able to discern what is true and what is false. And they end up believing a ton of lies EVEN THOUGH THEY DON’T TRUST THE NETWORKS.

    Sadly my own dad is an example. My mom watches a lot of Fox News; my dad gets a lot of his news from AOL.com (i.e., Arianna Huffington). So when we get together and talk politics, my mom and I are often shocked by what dad thinks is going on and the tainted facts that he’s been fed. He keeps getting awful crap about the GOP candidates, for instance, and nothing BUT awful crap. And he’s a CONSERVATIVE!!!

    I’m glad that there are conservatives around who watch the networks and pull out the garbage for display. But I couldn’t do it. Me, I’m one of those who holds to the bankteller training meme: “Learn to identify the real thing, and you’ll spot a counterfeit.” And so I try to surround myself with TRUTH rather than watching ABC or its clones.

  5. Florida Cars Says:

    Diane Sawyer Again Links Tea Party & Sarah Palin to shooting? Has lowlife sawyer ever heard of Ayers, Rev Wright, Khalidi or Odinga?
    Does she realize the shooter read Left Wing websites?

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    Florida,

    I’m guessing that she probably hasn’t heard of any of that. She is plugged in to the mainstream media. She only knows that Obama is the messiah and that anyone who doesn’t worship Obama is some kind of an infidel.
