Liberals are the biggest defenders and biggest offenders when it comes to censorship

The hypocrisy of liberals can be quite choking at times. Liberals make a huge deal out of censorship whenever one of their pet causes are threatened. However, when it comes to free speech that steps on their toes they often use silence as a weapon against it.

The woman that protested against China's President Hu on his visit to the US is claiming that CNN pre-censored her comments in an interview. The whole foundation of her protest was about China's barbaric treatment of the Falon Gong by killing them and harvesting their organs. Newsmax reports:

Though Wang's one-woman protest received widespread media attention, the press largely over looked the reason for her outcry - a bid to call attention to the gruesome organ harvesting practice.

Dr. Wang told Farber that the Beijing regime extracts hearts, livers and kidneys from prisoners all over China; including "prisoners of conscience," who could be Christians, anti-communists, or members of the Falun Gong religious movement.

So having been scheduled to be interviewed by Wolf Blitzer on CNN, the protestor Dr. Wenyi Wang, was told moments before the show not to mention the organ harvesting because it was during viewer's dinner hour. In an interview with talk show host Barry Farber:
She told Farber, however, that before the show "one producer actually told me - there will be no discussion about the organs."
I am sure that if there was a story about George Bush ordering the harvesting of organs of prisoners, CNN would have no problem airing discussion of it during the breakfast, lunch and dinner hours. What is the liberal's fascination and enthrallment to China? Look at how Dr. Wang's protest was covered in the mainstream media. When Bush is abroad and being protested by thousands the media has no problem with it; even relishing it. They hardly blinked when the dud grenade was lobbed on the stage with Bush. Actually, they could hardly contain their disappointment it did not go off. Yet China's Hu gets protested by one person and they both portray her as a nut and ignore the actual reason she is protesting.

I have stated before that silence is the weapon of choice by the media. If they disagree with it and they can get away with maintaining silence, they will do it. This voluntary censorship is called bias.

    Aren't people who watch CNN during the dinner hour used to gagging regularly? On a related note, during Bill Clinton's presidency, I don't recall news organizations having a problem discussing organs during mealtime.

    FYI Dr. Wang is the lead researcher for Epoch Times NY's conveniently timed "Sujiatun Auschwitz" allegation that has since being discredited:

    Given Dr. Wang's profession as a pathologist, and New York's recent string of grisly illegal cadaver organ harvesting cases, it's not hard to see how she put two and two together and rehashed the 1970's era anti-communist tall tale of people sentenced to vivisection.

    Sunday, thanks for stopping by and adding your feedback. I have made clear in the past I want to be nobody's dupe. So if Dr. Wang's assertions are false, I would want to acknowledge that.

    However, if your information is correct, I would think the MSM would jump at the chance to portray Dr. Wang as a discredited kook.

    I also am not sure where you are coming from. I read through some of your blog material. You claim the Epoch Times is basically a propoganda tool for the Falun Gong. I know very little about the Epoch Times, so I won't dispute. I think it is fair to point out you dispute in one of your posts the truth of the events of Tienneman Square. It makes it seem like you are a likely propoganda tool of China.

    Yeah right...brought to you by the same guys that gave us WMD's in Iraq and Iraqi Oil will pay for the war...Get real!!!

    The REDS in China have been persecuting and killing the members of Falun Gong in the thousands. The U.S. government tells them their coming in to investigate what their up to weeks in advance and they just relocate the prisoners. This a repressive and dictatorial regime that does business with other Repressive regimes.

    They play like they are our Capitalistic pals,but you can rest assure that we are on a collision course with them. They have not forgotten what the west did to their country at the beginning of the last century.

    So my Chinese GOVERNMENT DUPE/RUNNING DOG the crackdown at Tienneman Square never happened??? How do you explain all the photographic proof??? Sounds like what the skinheads say about the Holocaust...so what is the PARTY LINE THIS WEEK FROM BEJING?????

    Geeze, you guys. Did you even read my TAM blog?

    I wrote it after watching PBS' "The Tank Man". I also cited a Columbia Journal Review article I read years ago.

    You should take a look.

    All the evidence that led me to believe the death camp story was fabricated, are in my blog. Feel free to verify them as you see fit.

    Take the "Auschwitz vanished into thin air" bit. Our government stated the investigation 2nd week of March and ended with the consular visit on 3/21.

    "Auschwitz" had, at most, 5 days to vanish into thin air undetected: thousands including doctors nurses guards, equipment, supply, facility...

    What Epoch Times claims is science fiction.

    I'm sure it is emotionally satisfying to stick with that "red China", "people disagree with me are spies" stuff.

    It's a lot easier to view China or the Chinese government as some static entity - it blinds one's judgement and makes one content with being ignorant.

    China slams US for critical religious report

    So my Chinese Govt RUNNING DOG friend I assume that this is another FABRICATION of the Chinese Govt haters???

    Let me assure you that if you were living under the yoke of this Oppressive regime your blog would not exist and if you even mentioned Falun Dafa on your site you would disappear.

    Sunday, I have criticized the media for continuously giving Russia and China a pass, yet you take the time to make apologist blogs for China.

    How much do they pay you?

     
  • At 8:59 PM, Blogger bobby fletcher said…

    How much are you getting paid by Freedom House and the NED/CIA?

    See, I can make up stuff too. But hey, it's your blog, feel free to go after the messenger when you have no answer.

    Joe, I ain't Chinese. And nowhere did I ever say China is lily white like us...

    Great article...

    However, I don't think that CNN portrayed her as a nut case. I felt compassion for the woman, her country, falon gong, and felt a genuine respect for her cause.

    All this from watching CNN - and FOX barely made a mention of her... funny 'bout that, huh.
