OKAY, ONE MORE. Conservative blogger LaShawn Barber gives the game away right here:
Let me clear up one thing. Whether Americans flushed the Koran down the toilet is irrelevant. Newsweek should not have reported it, even if true. It's common sense, people. Those journalists knew how Muslims would react! Why would you hurt your own country and risk more deaths just to report this "fact?" To what end???
Just in case anyone was unclear on the agenda. Whatever it is, it's not about the truth.
Barber also links to this report on Radio Equalizer that Boston's WRKO Radio (AM 680) has decided to cancel the Newsweek on the Air program in response to the Guantánamo fallout. (If you cancel a program that no one has ever actually heard ... well, never mind.)
WRKO program director Mike Elder tells the Equalizer that he was preparing to dump the show anyway, but the current situation "led me to move forward more quickly than originally planned."
This is a station that gives knuckle-dragging hatemonger Michael Savage 15 hours of airtime every week. Can we please get real about what's going on here?
