Journalistic Malpractice: Crickets

When a theoretical Main Stream Media, as they like to be referred to as, purposefully “buries” a Good News story developing in the GWOT, it can be argued that the journalistic entity is conducting journalistic malpractice.

We have Medical Malpractice. We have Legal Malpractice and in recent times, we have Accounting Malpractice. I think we are due for some good old Journalistic Malpractice. It can be argued that such “cover ups” create a false perception, damaging morale within the Armed Forces and the American Public as a whole. A good attorney could have a Field Day second to none in this regard. Get a good Crash and Burn firm to lead the charge to hold the journalists to a standard to which they hold all others…except their moppets, naturally.

We in the New Media have shown that the Media Darlings are never held to as a higher plateau of honesty and integrity they demand so much of from others. It doesn’t mesh with their personal agendas or tenets of dishonesty.

Case in point: Musa Qala, Afghanistan. Where is theMain Stream Media”? A blog at ABC has some good coverage, does it not? Or, not.

TheMain StreamcoverageIS” “Ratherrelegated to the Boredom Pageswhy is that?

The self-vaunted “Main Stream Media” said that the rebels fled or Afghan Troops over-ran a rebel position and 50 rebels were killed where the truth is this: the Taliban was seriously routed, defeated and crushed by overwhelming and superior firepower.

Ace of Spades:

The US Military had a “temper tantrum,” I guess ABCNews would say.

A wonderful temper tantrum. “Hundreds killed,” not the 50 or so reported earlier. […]

[…] Now you may wonder why a major victory in the, ahem, “Forgotten War” (the first forgotten war Afghanistan, and not Forgotten War II, Iraq) isn’t being reported by the media.

It’s because they’re Patriots, buddy! They don’t want to leak out the sensitive intelligence to the Taliban that they just got their asses kicked unholy. They might not know yet, so keep it on the QT, all right?

All hail the Patriotic MSM for its discretion. Huzzah, sirs!

Thanks to dri.

Coalition forces captured the Taliban’s biggest stronghold on Tuesday in a major military victory. Funny, isn’t it, how the good guys winning doesn’t make banner front-page headlines?

Musa Qala was the only town in the strategically vital Helmand province under Taliban control. The enemy had seized it in February after the collapse of a local truce between the British military and Afghan elders. But this week Afghan and NATO-led troops changed that by killing, wounding or capturing hundreds of Taliban fighters, including several commanders, in retaking the town.

On Pearl Harbor Day, Dec. 7, U.S. infantry were participating in one of the biggest air assaults in Afghanistan since the toppling of the Taliban government a few weeks after 9/11. So many of the enemy were killed that Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman Zahir Azimi told reporters, “We are still busy collecting dead bodies from Musa Qala.” Azimi also said an important Taliban meeting in the mountains of Sangin and Musa Qala district was also bombed, resulting in many casualties. […]

[…] Far from just an important Taliban command post, Musa Qala was also a training base for both Afghan and foreign Islamist militants. Azimi has said hundreds of foreign terrorists had gathered there. That makes this week’s victory a big win in the global war on terror.

On top of that, though, is the fact that the town was home to as many as 70 heroin labs, profits from which were used to fund Taliban terrorism. Afghanistan makes over 90% of the world’s opium, more than half of which is grown in Helmand province. So chalk up a victory in the war on drugs, too. […]

[…] Major media outlets are only too happy to report things falling apart in Afghanistan, while Democrats just complain that Osama bin Laden hasn’t been caught yet. This week we saw all the signs of a major victory in the global war on terror, and a victory for freedom for the Afghan people. That’s nothing to be quiet about.

Simply amazing and, this DAV now has a burning hatred for the Leftinistra and their idgits in the now defunct and untrustworthy once Main Stream Media.

Yes. It is time for Journalistic Malpractice to become a reality.
