On Monday, I did something I almost never do. I watched CNN. First was the Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer. I only flipped it by there in passing but found something very interesting.
Wolf had a female on who walked the streets of New York. They still call them reporters, but you'll have to decide if they are still reporters. I don't think they are. I don't know the woman's name.
This woman, on camera, walked the two blocks between Ground Zero and the proposed Mosque site. She showed some businesses between the two places. Most of the businesses she pointed out were bars, clubs, and strip joints. The implication was what's wrong with a mosque when they have these types of businesses there. She also pointed out a Catholic church.
There were many scenes of tall buildings where you couldn't see ground zero. At least twice they pointed the camera down a street and said that ground zero was down the road and to the right. She even walked behind a block and showed how you can't see ground zero from there, even though she had not yet reached the site of the coming mosque.
Later, I turned on John King USA. Again, the discussion turned to the mosque. This time, King turned to the big screen television on the wall that he likes to play with. He put a graphic on the screen showing a circle of the area around ground zero. He had color charts to show where and how many bars are in that circle. Strip clubs. Even churches. Then he widened the circle to include more bars. Again, the implication being that there were these businesses and even said businesses such as this, but then backtracked on his statement abit saying 'unless you like bars'.
Later King had a guy named Cornell on his panel. He's a regular on the program and a Democrat strategist. Cornell began saying that the Republicans were injecting race into this because we're not at war with Muslims, but with radical Islam.
King also had another man on his panel who was Muslim and backing the mosque. This turned into a debate about race and racism.
Still later on another program I flipped it by CNN again and this time saw James Carville and his message was that Americans outside of New York were not interested in the mosque going up two blocks from ground zero and again, the discussion about bars and strip clubs in the area.
CNN seems to have developed a strategy to back Obama's words this past weekend which seem to have Obama in hot water, by showing that the Mosque is a church and why shouldn't it be permitted there when there are some businesses that involve drinking and girls stripping.
Ed Rendell, Gerald Nadler, James Carville and others all seem to think that the attack on New York didn't affect the rest of the country. They are saying they are in disbelief that Americans in the heartland would vote this fall with any thought of the mosque.
If you'd like to know how MSNBC is handling this story, you'll have to check it out for yourself. I've gone as far as I'm going to go watching CNN. One spoiled evening is all I can take even if it is fun watching these liberals on CNN going through all sorts of contortions to justify Obama's stupid remarks.
