It just tears me up inside to watch the media squirming and wriggling to get out of the grip of reality. They are pushing fairness bias beyond even unreasonable limits, giving equal weight to any and all statements made about the carnage. The pathetic lies of the butchers are faithfully quoted and with much handwringing, media airheads conclude, “We don’t know who (sic) to believe… can’t find out what’s going on.”
Really? Who denies access to massacre sites until the evidence has been removed? Who removed it? The “terrorists” who have never been seen by anyone? Or the butchers who, as everyone freely admits (without drawing the obvious conclusion), are in near-total control of the massacre sites? Another strange twist of fairness bias is the label “rebels” that has been pasted onto the victims. These are not rebels. Che Guevara was a rebel. These are unarmed and (yes, emphatically) innocent dissenters who were mercilessly slaughtered while the world looked on until they were forced to defend themselves.
