Media "Scrapes Bottom" - A Flood of Bias, Not Water

I would say that the media has sunk to a new low, but it's hard to sink when the reporter sits in a canoe in only inches of water--trying to hype a "deep" flood, caused by Bush and global warming no doubt. However, the illusion was spoiled by two people walking into her story.

The Today Show Stages Flood Report in New Jersey

Media Staging.jpg

On the Today show this morning, Katie Couric was promoting a segment that would talk about the apparent staged inteview with soldiers in Iraq. A few moments later the show went to correspondent Michelle Kosinski, reporting on location about the floods in New Jersey. Kosinski was canoeing in what looked to be in deep water. However as the segment begin two men walked in front of her in what looked to be a few inches of water.

Federal agencies obviously failed to come to her rescue, and it's only a matter of time before the left claims that it's because President Bush wants reporters to die. Be sure to go to the link in the title above the picture and watch their video of the reporter moving the canoe by pushing her paddle into the ground. It's great!

Are you surprised that the network was going to slam a "staged event" by the military, even though it got caught in its own staging? Maybe they will end up in deep water, after all. Isn't the hypocrisy of the media wonderful?

I loved the male reporter's question as to whether the two guys who walked by were holy men walking on water. LOL!

This just proves how sometimes God displays a wicked sense of humor!

Too funny, but I'm laughing from a different hilltop than some people on this. I used to be a newspaper reporter. In the newsroom where I worked, if a colleague got caught out in something this stupid, I'd have to think there would have been copies of the photo on all desks, and probably a poster in the lunch room, the press room, and probably in the bathrooms as well. (The advertising department likely would have been more discreet, on the grounds that it wasn't good for business...) Certainly the poor wretch who made us all look like dweebs would have been subjected to canoe jokes, et al, for the rest of their tenure (which wouldn't have been very long, believe me).

I'd love to be a fly on the wall at NBC right now. If this hasn't caused a rift between the "just the facts, ma'am" newsmen and the "punch it up" newspeople, I don't know what would.

I can only hope that Michelle Kosinski learns to refuse to participate in future stunts like this. If she gets cured of going-along-to-get-along, that's one less "whatever sells" person running around, which could only be a good thing.

Not that I'm holding my breath...
