BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THE KOOL AID TABLE
FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL LORETTA LYNCH IS COMING UNDER CRITICISM FOR CLEARING HILLARY CLINTON BEFORE THE F.B.I. HAD COMPLETED THE INVESTIGATION OR EVEN SPOKEN TO HILLARY.
REACHED FOR COMMENT BY THESE REPORTERS, LYNCH RESPONDED, "WHAT? THAT'S NOT NORMAL? I THOUGHT IT WAS NORMAL. WHEN I SPOKE WITH BILL CLINTON ABOUT THIS ON THE PLANE, WE BOTH AGREED IT WAS NORMAL. IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO ME TO BE NORMAL. OR AT LEAST TO APPEAR NORMAL -- AND INNOCENT."
This week BLACK AGENDA RADIO shared a speech by Margaret Kimberley discussing the permanent war and the lack of resistance to war from the so-called 'Resistance.'
Let's dive into Iraq.
Yesterday afternoon REUTERS published an embarrassing article. It opens:
Iraqi authorities on Thursday took into custody a former trade minister convicted in absentia for corruption cases, following his extradition from Lebanon, Iraq’s corruption watchdog said in a statement.
Yes, that is the story we covered yesterday morning -- before REUTERS.
We didn't have to wait for 'authorities' to issue 'a statement.'
Don't know when that became necessary to report on something.
They also fail to note that this ex-Minister of Trade September apprehension is unusual in that he's only released to Iraq in time for Hayder al-Abadi to use it as election propaganda.
They re-wrote a government release.
Somehow that passed for reporting.
They didn't even get his history correct.
At least they can say they covered it. That's more than any other western outlet has done.
Mina Aldroubi (THE NATIONAL) does a better job covering the story.
