Media continuously plays stupid

For the ingnorant and uninformed the piece of information that a plan exists to strike Iran's nuclear sites would come with surprise and anxiety. The story I have linked to presents as news that such a plan exists. Such reporting has one single goal: to cause a negative picture of the Bush administration by deceptive means.

What the informed person knows is that at all times, the administration is working on military plans for offensive and defensive initiatives for any potentially hostile country or group. The informed person would be surprised if there was not a strategic plan to strike Iran. The underlying fact is that these plans are not developed overnight. Waiting until a threat is confirmed to have developed is not the best time to start planning for a response. It takes months to develop and so they should be working months ahead of time and have them on file and frequently updated to utilize at a moments notice.

The media continues to take advantage of the massive ignorance that exists among the general public in these matters. The media takes great glee in seeing Bush's approval numbers going down. What the Dems and their media water carriers fail to see is the correlation between Bush's numbers and their numbers going down. They are hemorraging credibility in their single minded quest to take down Bush. They must think it is worth it.

    I read this and thought it to be highly irresponsible journalism.

    I am sure it has been thought about. Contigency plans always exist. But that doesn't mean that there are active plans, in the works.

    I think you are right, smear jobs are getting more outlandish as the leftists and their media advocates lose more battles, in the arena of ideas.

    irresponsible and journalism are swiftly becoming synonomous.
