Brilliant, Caroline Glick writes an extraordinary column eviscerating the corrupt and vicious predatory media and hails the emergence of the blogs as the force of good that will save freedom loving peoples. Gd love that woman. I know I do.

What are we seeing when we watch events from the Middle East on our television screens? Is it news or is it terrorist theater?

Caroline Glick writes in her column today "Our World: Terrorist theater tricks" here:

As each day passes, the governments, formal and informal legal apparatuses, and media of free societies show themselves to be less and less capable of contending with the information operations conducted against their societies by subversive forces seeking their destruction.

The blogosphere, and particularly Little Green Footballs, Powerline, Zombietime, Michelle Malkin, and EU Referendum, have relentlessly exposed the systematic staging of news events, fabrication of attacks against relief workers, and doctoring of photographic images by Hizbullah with the active assistance of international organizations and the global media.

As each day passes it becomes clear that the responsibility of protecting our nations and societies from internal disintegration has passed to the hands of individuals, often working alone, who refuse to accept the degradation of their societies and so fight with the innovative tools of liberty to protect our way of life. The vigilance of just a handful of bloggers brought us the knowledge of the corruption of our media and the network of global NGOs that we have come to rely on to tell us the "objective" truth.

It is up to all citizens of the free world, who value our freedom to recognize this corruption, applaud the bloggers and join them in refusing to allow these corrupt institutions to cloud our commitment to freedom

Glick describes the media as jihad tool;

AS IS the case with the Palestinian war against Israel, one of the most notable aspects of Hizbullah's latest campaign against Israel has been the active collaboration of news organizations and international NGO's in Hizbullah's information war against Israel. Like their rogue state sponsors, subversive sub-national groups like Hizbullah, Fatah and Hamas, see information operations as an integral part of their war for the annihilation of Israel and defeat of the West. And their information operations are more advanced than any the world has seen. As becomes more evident with each passing day, they have successfully corrupted both the world media and the community of NGOs that purportedly operate in a neutral manner in war zones READ IT ALL HERE

And it isn't just the stories that are misreported and fabricated. There are also the stories that never get reported.

Al-Beeb never reported this manifestation of Moderate Islam, presumably in the interests of maintaining multicultural community relations ...

The role of the media in this war has been an effing disgrace.
More than that, it's going to lose the war for the West unless there's more outrage and demands that they clean up their act.
The sight of an F16 on afterburners is a glorious thing, but right now I'd rather the cost of just one squadron of those was spent on a publicity campaign to counter leftist media spin.
It'd be more effective.
