If I hear one more person from the Right praise Peter Jennings as a “great reporter”, a “great anchor” or a “great man” I’m going to puke. The only thing that he was “great” at was spewing propaganda for the Left.
This Canadian high-school droput stood for everything that I, and most of the Right, are against. Tax policy, abortion, education, name the issue and he was on the opposite side. He was a perfect example of the “blame America first” crowd. He was anti-American, anti-Israel and an apologist for Muslim terrorists.. He despised anything Conservative; thus he was my ideological enemy.
Like most media liberals, he attacked the very country that made him rich and famous. He was an ungrateful, self-centered child. Just another fool who could read a Teleprompter and, somehow, thought that that made his opinion more relevant than anyone else’s. I will never understand people who believe that someone who reads the news is smarter than they are. I used to wonder about that even before I paid attention to politics.
Yes, it’s sad when almost anyone dies (and I do include him in that category), but don’t whitewash the harm that he’s done to this country. This “Progressive” used his position as a media giant to block progress on many issues, including the safety of you and me.
So why are all of these people on the Right suddenly praising him as if he were a Saint? It’s because they’re afraid that the left-wing MSM will attack them as being “insensitive”. Big deal. If the MSM were ever to attack me, I’d wear it as a badge of honor. I’m sure that my pet troll will attack me as “hateful and ignorant”. Good. That just tells me that I’m right. If you’re ever unsure of your position, just see what the Left is attacking, and you can be sure that that’s the right position, because the left is never right.
Besides, those right-wing pundits don’t have to actually come out and attack him, but they really don’t have to mention him at all, do they? Don’t dignify his existence with any comment whatsoever. As far as I can tell, he’s done nothing to earn our praise. Why suddenly pretend that he has?
The Left likes to call the Right hypocrites and, for once, on this issue, I would agree.
