A few weeks ago the Christian Science Monitor came out first with a story inferring that John Patrick Bedell, the Pentagon shooter, was a “right-wing extremist.” The first headline read:Three days later they changed the headline and lead-in, when it became apparent Mr. Bedell was a Bush hating Truther. Of course, it had already been spread all over the internet by then.
Today, Yahoo has on the front page another story from the Christian Science Monitor, this time about a statement Rush Limbaugh made about moving to Costa Rica if the health care reform bill passed.
Well, get a grip. He said that as an exaggeration to make a point, much like I would be doing if I said, if they pass health care reform, I’m going to shoot myself or they will replay this dribble on the news 15,000 times today. Of course, he didn’t mean he was REALLY going to move to Costa Rica.
When I see this news organization coming out with what really is mis- reporting, I think, what’s the deal with them? What is their agenda? Who is behind them?
Just to satisfy my own curiosity, I found that the Christian Science Monitor was founded by Mary Baker Eddy, founder of the Christian Scientist movement. On their website it is stated that the founder, Mary Baker Eddy, explained their mission this way: “To injure no man, but to bless all mankind.”
Well, it goes without saing that printing misleading and false stories helps no one, and, in fact, can do a lot of harm.
Either they just don’t care or they are being used and fed information from some left-wing source. It’s pretty obvious they are more than anxious to print something to push some propoganda. I think they might fit in the same categor as AP, CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post, et cetera.
