First, let me apologizes to the DailyKos community for not doing a more timely follow up for the earlier post
As many of you already know, David Shuster slammed FOX news earlier in the week, we he was interviewed by the Bloomington, IN newspaper The Herald Times about his past employment with the "News" network. The exact quote was that some FOX reporters would "just make things up" and that "Management would either look the other way or just wouldn't care to take a closer look".
Well on Thursday Night at Indiana University in Bloomington, Shuster slammed them again.
Sarah Cole of the Indiana Daily Student reported the speech in her great article here
"Don't let your eyes fool you," he said, when asked a question about whether Fox News Channel was biased. "Listen to how questions are formed, how questions are answered," adding that someone's gut instinct is "probably right."
Now for many of us in the Kossack Nation, we know that this is true. You listen to the questioning or "reporting" on FOX, you can literally smell the shit coming from your television.
Shuster also stated how Katrina changed everything, how the dynamics of 9/11 had, no pun intended, been blown away by the hurricane.
"There was very limited information," said Shuster, adding that what makes Katrina so significant is that for the first time since before Sept. 11, news agencies didn't have to rely on officials or experts to tell them what was going on in New Orleans.
"All you had to do was point your camera there, there's a woman who tells you she hasn't been able to provide food or water to her children in four days; point your camera there, there's another dead person with a note attached to them," said Shuster, who was in Biloxi, Miss., when the hurricane hit and spent most of the past month covering the story.
"For the first time in a long time, Americans were seeing people dying right before them," Shuster said. "Suddenly it becomes even more of a difference between what the officials were saying and what was happening in New Orleans. The facts and evidence are incontrovertible."
In other words, the Bush Administration could not lie through their teeth. They could not hide "the man behind the curtain." The media finally
realized what many of us already knew - this administration lied about a lot of things and that the American people were paying with it with their lives
I was hoping to posting the speech online, but had technical problems. I apologize for that. I noticed other people at the speech with recorders, hopefully one of them will post the speech.
