A Few Suggested Targets

Friday, 14 September 2001 12:00 AM

Given the fact that untold thousands of our fellow Americans have been slain, and we are at war and must rally behind our commander in chief at such a perilous time, any media attempts to undermine public confidence in our president and thus hamper his ability to lead a united nation in combat against the monsters behind the assault on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon can be viewed as an outright betrayal of America and its people.

On Tuesday, faced with threats to his life, the president was kept out of Washington for the better part of the day. Thanks to the superb communications capabilities available on Air Force One and on the ground in the Air Force bases in Louisiana and Nebraska, he was constantly in contact with Washington officials, and with Mayor Guiliani and Gov. Pataki in New York throughout the day.

Yet many in the media, totally in the dark about the facts concerning the threats against his life, have united in attacking him and suggesting that he he should have following the example of Mayor Guiliani - who prior to this had been a longtime target of media scorn - and been on the spot during the immediate aftermath of the attack. One supposes that they would have only been satisfied had his life been put at risk.

Now no president is beyond criticism, but the shocking behavior of these anti-American elitists in the face of a deadly attack that left thousands of innocent Americans dead cries out for swift and severe retaliation by all loyal Americans.

We should rise up as one people and drive them out of the public square. Let their sponsors and advertisers know that we will not spend one red cent more on their products as long as they continue to subsidize these dangerous saboteurs of public faith in the president when he needs and deserves the full backing of the American people as he goes about the job of waging a difficult and dangerous war against those who would destroy us. Tell the networks to dump these people, or simply stop watching them and turn to Fox Cable News which, unlike their rivals, tells the truth and deals in facts and not socialist propaganda.

As NewsMax.com has reported elsewhere on these Web pages, the drumfire of criticism of the man who replaced their hero - the ultra-corrupt Bill Clinton, the man directly responsible for the trouble we are now experiencing - has been deafening.

Here, for example is Dan Rather introducing our president: "No matter how you feel about him, he is still our president," said a scornful Democrat Dan.

And here's Tom Brokaw interviewing Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf:

"We don't want to blame anyone, but do you think the Bush administration was negligent in not getting actively involved in the Mideast peace process while all the violence was going on?"

Obviously Brokaw has forgotten that it was his hero, Bill Clinton, whose bumbling involvement "in the Mideast peace process" is directly responsible for the failure of that process and the subsequent violence now rocking that area.

Then there is the despicable transplanted Canadian Peter Jennings, who repays his host country's hospitality by endlessly attacking its people (we had a "temper tantrum" by daring to elect a GOP Congress in 1994). He seems transfixed with the elitist idea that President Bush is "inarticulate" and is therefore incapable of leading the nation.

The Times ... well ... what can you expect of a newspaper that supported Fidel Castro's communist takeover in Cuba? The ultra-left-wing Times makes no secret of its antipathy to Bush, who dares to occupy a White House the paper thinks should be the sole property of one Bill Clinton, who, like most of the murderous Soviet dictators in the past, could do no wrong in the Times' eyes.

Before we go leveling some Middle Eastern countries for supporting terrorists, we really ought to deal with our domestic media brand.

* I ought to apologize to the memory of Benedict Arnold for lumping him in with this disloyal media scum - he was a genuine American hero before his betrayal - something that can't be said about the president's media critics, the majority of whom never wore a uniform.
