Find Cheap Kick Smoking Patch

The article neglects to also include the termination of CNN veteran anchor Octavia Nasr, find cheap kick smoking patch who was fired by CNN in July over a Tweet tribute she paid to a respected leader of  the Hezbollah. Find cheap kick smoking patch Is The Firing Of Thomas, find cheap kick smoking patch Sanchez And Williams Censorship? http://www.alan.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/helen_thomas-297x300.jpg http://www.charged.mobi/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/rick-sanchez2.jpg http://crooksandliars.com/files/uploads/2007/09/juan-williams.jpg                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                by Gilbert Mercier In the past five months, find cheap kick smoking patch three firings of high profile journalists by their respective news outlets have raised some serious questions about what is left of the freedom of the press in the US main steam media. The firings also raise questions about defining the blurry journalistic lines between analysis, find cheap kick smoking patch commentary and opinion. It started with the firing of veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas in June, find cheap kick smoking patch than the one of Rick Sanchez by CNN a couple of weeks ago, find cheap kick smoking patch and finally the firing of Juan Williams by NPR last week. The three cases have a lot in common. Find cheap kick smoking patch Thomas, find cheap kick smoking patch Sanchez and Williams all committed the “sin” of expressing their respective own opinions, find cheap kick smoking patch not on their regular beats but as guests on other broadcasting venues. And this raises the key question here: In our current toxic and biased US news landscape are journalists allowed to express their own views? Back in June, find cheap kick smoking patch our own Liam Fox at News Junkie Post reported in his story “Helen Thomas: No Apologies Necessary”, find cheap kick smoking patch about the hasty firing of Thomas over her comments on Israel’s behavior towards the Palestinians. “Helen Thomas statements were about policy, find cheap kick smoking patch not people, find cheap kick smoking patch and for that, find cheap kick smoking patch we should have not lost her. Find cheap kick smoking patch To liken what Thomas has said to racist rants inviting African-Americans to return to Africa is disingenuous at best, find cheap kick smoking patch and more directly, find cheap kick smoking patch a twisted misinterpretation designed only to silence opposing views to Israeli expansionism, find cheap kick smoking patch” wrote Liam Fox in his June article. What was worse in the case of Thomas is that the White House had an explicit hand in it, find cheap kick smoking patch and by doing so the Obama administration attacked not only the freedom of the press but even Helen Thomas’ freedom of speech. Both Thomas and Sanchez committed what is a crime of lese majeste in the United States media: speaking out against Israel, find cheap kick smoking patch and the country’s border line criminal policies towards Palestinians. In the case of Rick Sanchez, find cheap kick smoking patch the firing came after a comment he made concerning the control of America’s media by Jews. Find cheap kick smoking patch The reason used  to quickly give the ax to both journalists was that both made “anti-Semitic” remarks. In either cases, find cheap kick smoking patch the opinions expressed by  Thomas and Sanchez were not an attack on Jews, find cheap kick smoking patch as a people or a religious group, find cheap kick smoking patch but a critic of the state of Israel. For Sanchez, find cheap kick smoking patch he was merely expressing the complete biased in favor of Israel that is chronic  in the US media. Find cheap kick smoking patch But apparently, find cheap kick smoking patch the board of  CNN’s corporate master do not make a distinction between anti-Semites and journalists who dare to critic Israel. If the firing of Thomas and Sanchez had to do with Israel and Jews, find cheap kick smoking patch the one of Williams has to do with comments he made about Muslims on Fox News. Find cheap kick smoking patch NPR considered Williams’ anti-Islamic view to be “bigotry”, find cheap kick smoking patch and not acceptable coming from an NPR  Senior News Analyst. But NPR, find cheap kick smoking patch who claims to be non-biased and “objective”, find cheap kick smoking patch by their clumsy reaction and the firing of Williams have made itself a bit less credible as a serious news organization. Find cheap kick smoking patch Instead of firing Juan Williams, find cheap kick smoking patch they could have changed his title from Senior News Analyst to Senior News Commentator which would have giving him the ability to express his opinions, find cheap kick smoking patch regardless of their merit, find cheap kick smoking patch in a much more open way. Regardless of anyone’s political opinions about Israel, find cheap kick smoking patch Jews and Muslims, find cheap kick smoking patch what CNN and NPR lost in the process is credibility as news organizations. Journalists should be able to speak out without being concerned of getting fired, find cheap kick smoking patch and this is not only an issue of freedom of the press but also one of freedom of speech. Whatever ways  the respective news outlets want to spin it to justify the firings, find cheap kick smoking patch it does amount to censorship.  The original article can be found at: http://newsjunkiepost.com/2010/10/24/press-is-the-firing-of-thomas-sanchez-and-williams-censorship/
