A bitch watched the coverage of the London attacks all... night... long.
My ass consumed a multitude of vodka crans, 6 pseudo-Sudafed and an unmentionable quantity of cigs…
Drunk, this bitch found the evolution of media coverage of the attacks fascinating!
It began when I stunned myself awake the evening before at 3:30am (a bitch has sleep issues) and turned on CNN to see coverage of an “incident”.
The incident became a probable attack. The probable attack morphed into a clear attack of unknown origin. The clear attack of unknown origin changed into an anti-Christian (all thanks due to the new Pope) atrocity. The anti-Christian atrocity morphed into a most-likely-not-the-work-of-the-IRA bombing. The MLNTWOTIRAB quickly evolved into the work of Islamic jihadists. And it was quick work to decide that those jihadists were al Qaeda.
Now, the real work began. The machine must move swiftly to connect this attack to Sept.11and thus...uh...err...Iraq!
But wait! Is that a ray of propaganda sunshine I see before me?
Lawd have mercy…it’s Rudy Giuliani!
Slap this bitch and call me Martha.
Whatever could he have to say?
It was something like “America stands behind our ally as they stood by us during our time of need…Sept. 11”. Keep in mind...my ass was very tipsy.
Thank you Rudy! Jesus, what would we do without you?
This bitch is torn between wonder and horror. Am I the only one who watches the big propaganda machine and sees them for the bullshit artists that they are? These people are working their asses off! And all under the cloak of legitimate news. Sigh. A bitch is concerned that The Man may not be getting the kind of acknowledgement that a 24-hour propaganda turn-around deserves!
And yet, a bitch remains un-spun...
Things ABB Slurred to the Television...
The fact that terror cells are still able to execute coordinated attacks at will is not a sign that the tide is turning towards to efforts of democracy.
Soledad, Diane and Katie – we are not safe, have not been safe and will not be safe.
CNN – cease comparing these attacks to The Blitz of WWII. Some 43,000 civilians were estimated to have died during The Blitz. Sit down, shut up and listen. A bitch has always admired London for its ability to survive a multi-year bombing. You diminish that achievement when you launch into the comparison game. You limited, irrelevant media hack fucks.
ABC – It’s 2005. Go live or give it up.
NBC – Nothing is shallower than viewing a tragedy through a national gaze. Couldn’t you at least mix in some fucking coverage with all the “American Hero” and American Victim” stories. Jesus to God, you people are so fucking lazy.
p.s. to ABC – Stop star-fucking NBC for all their stories. They suck and all you are doing is following them down the fuck-up trail!
CBS – Hello? Is there anyone home?
A bitch does not recognize the existence of FOX.
The true tragedy is that so few even noticed that the G8 wrapped up having accomplished so little…so quickly.
Anyone up for another cocktail?
