        Having a son in the military makes me really sensitive to this shit. There is a reason they are told not to carry personal information, specially related to family, if there is any chance they may get captured.

        • June 3, 2013 at 10:15 pm

          I can only imagine Japa. It’s completely beyond belief to me how anyone can still defend this guy when he put the lives of all those service members at risk by passing on that information. It really, really is astonishing.

            June 3, 2013 at 10:32 pm

            It is more than them. Family information would have been passed out as well. Having a chat, kind of, with soemone who is saying that Nuremburg showed that Manning is a hero. And that he exposed a lot of war crimes. I only know of the one video of the helicopter attack on civilians, which, it turns out was highly edited. I am convinced, by the way, that Manning, in his heart, thought he was doing the right thing. But that does not excuse what he did.

            • June 3, 2013 at 10:49 pm

              Ah, didn’t think about the family information aspect, makes it even more unforgivable.

              Never had a problem with that video being released, to be honest, just think war crimes have to be exposed, and whatever editing was done, it did appear that it featured war crimes and nothing less.

              I used to think Manning just reckoned he was doing the right thing, but I’m more swayed now by the notion he was simply an attention seeker, and he got plenty of attention from Assange once he got his claws in to him and manipulated him for all he was worth.

              So, for me, Assange is the ultimate scumbag in all of this, I hope they dig him out of that embassy one day and make him pay.

    Did anyone catch any of Lawrence O’Donnell opening segment talking about the ignorance of the washington press, and what a stupid question CNN Candy Crowley asked that lying Darrell Issa “What’s in your gut”. He said the media are only concern about one thing that word “scandal”.

    • 43 prettyfoot58
      June 3, 2013 at 10:34 pm

      What O’Donell implied was the WHPC is ignorant…I disagree with ODonnell …..I think they know very well what they do…it is not an accident that Crowley asked Issa about his supposition and not about facts….it is where the Press is at…it is not working on behalf of the working class…but that 1%….

      • 44 anniebella
        June 3, 2013 at 10:37 pm

        I just email Candy Crowley and ask her what’s in her gut? It’s clear seeking the truth isn’t.

        • 45 anniebella
          June 4, 2013 at 5:48 am

          I also ask Ms. Crowley have she even read the 501c4 law? I told her that it is ashame that the media are so hung up on the word scandal, even if there really is no scandal, that doesn’t matter to the media. Where were the media and Issa outrage when the NAACP and other liberal groups were being investigate? I told her that I see this for what it really is, Darrell Issa and the Republicans attempt to go after this President, even if they have to make up their own facts. And what is disgusting is how the media have decided to go right along with the Republicans in their witch hunt.

          • 46 anniebella

        I’m glad LOD is calling out the WHPC. He may imply they are ignorant…..others believe they know very well what they do……but they do come across as ignorant, stupid and lazy. They are indeed losing credibility rapidly.
        My husband talks to lots of people at his health club…..heart rehab for lots of people…..and most of these people would be pigeonholed as old white Republicans. Well……he’s finding out that they aren’t. One man told him the last good Repub was Gerald Ford. They have no use for the modern Republican party.
        These people also grew up with Cronkite, etc., and have no use for modern press. Younger people never experienced credible press, but they pay little or no attention to these guys, and when they do, they hear ignorance.
        Someone IN the press needs to CALL OUT the press……let it start with LOD…..then hopefully it will spread.
        Is MSNBC still bleeding viewers? They’ve lost us, and we used to be faithful viewers. They are just throwing anything at the wall to see if something hits. They have made bad decision after bad decision…….truly stupid.

          Lawrence was pissed at the WHPC and Candy Crowley tonight. Thank you Lawrence for telling it like it is about the lazy press corps. It appears that Issa got quite a bit of pushback on his “gut” theory. Lawrence’s takedown deserves a video post on the Obama Diary. 🙂

          Carolyn, your sad, but true statement..”Younger people never experienced a credible press.” Despite all that our generation tried to do for our children, we could not give them that gift. Instead of striving for some kind of truth, our modern press does what’s lucrative for their careers and convenient. They are, at heart, ill trained and incredibly lazy. I honestly think they are completely incapable of independent thought or of researching or analyzing anything. Fortunately, as you say, we did raise kids smart enough to know phonies when they see them and to ignore them.

      • June 3, 2013 at 10:50 pm

        Agree, pf. The #NEWSTAINERS are not ignorant, they are laser focused (because their payola from the Kochs & other plutocrats keeps them that way) on destroying President Obama irrespective of whatever scale harm is done to the majority of Americans.

        well said – all the WHPC does is lie to undermine the President and his administration – deliberately, with malice aforethought.

        The “scandal” is the media carrying water for the lies of the GOP – all of them, any of them.

        I agree with you, prettyfoot! If I remember correctly, I think It was David Gregory who unwittingly spilled the beans about the media war against President Obama. The MSM media are not ignorant. Rather, the MSM have decided to join the GOP in trying to bring down President Obama. The only obstacle standing in their way is the social media.

          The other obstacle is us, Nath. We love our president too much and worked too hard for his elections to be deluded. We’re not buying it and we have the power to push back every day, not just through the social media, but through our individual contact with people from family members to those who stand in line with us at the grocery store.

    I love the truth of TOD but am finding the US media more and more disgusting. They really want to see the US on its knees internally, while waging war with the rest of the world over the lack of “democracy”. If the current version of the US – as seen by the media and its partener in arms – the GOP – is democracy, I can’t imagine why anyone wants it.

    Issa can attack the president with LIES every day of the week – but the minute anyone calls him out – well those democrats should remain civil and not do such a thing.

    It’s all about the blah guy – he just doesn’t want to hang out with Jake and Co.

    Universal health care hit my world in 1972/3. Took awhile for all the states to come on board (I think mine was the last) but they did – and NO-ONE ever suggested a repeal, although the next government did make some changes (& I can’t even remember what they were – other than changing the name – sigh)

    GOP politicians and their mouthpieces in the media are the best example of why the “freedom of the press to lie” must be stopped.

        Hello carolyn – I have read all your posts in the past couple of weeks – it was so good to hear that you were safe – together with the reality of the hurricane and storms. We have floods and cyclones in my world & although I have only suffered to the extent of losing power & being cut off from 21st century living – I so feel for those who have lost it all. It takes years to recover – yet the media – in all it’s glory – sends in the helicopters and the stupid of their pundits – says “tut tut – but thank the Lord for doing something” and then leaves.

        No word on climate change, no word on how people will cope the next many months, no word on those who have lost their loved ones, pets, communities. Pfft to them all. Maybe the local press do more – that I do not see.

        I am a big Robbie Burns fan – my father was an old style teacher who was taught in his childhood the poets of past times. He could recite Burns – among many – although Shakespeare was his main forte.

        His favorite however from Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
        Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough,
        A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse – and Thou
        Beside me singing in the Wilderness –
        And Wilderness is Paradise enow.

        “A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse – and Thou” – engraved on the watch he gave my mother – it always calms me.

      And why does Boehner ignore the science of 2nd hand smoke – as a very long term smoker – being treated as a 2nd class citizen and forced outside in all weather was a defining reason for giving up the habit – Boehner should have to go out into the snow. I can’t believe he is not called out on this – and wonder if his addiction is one of the reasons he sets the house timetable so he spends minimal time in the chamber (where I assume he cannot smoke).

      “On a recent Wednesday afternoon, House Republicans filed into the same Capitol basement room, HC5, where they fought on New Year’s Day. They filtered past clearly marked NO SMOKING signs — which, as always, the Camel-smoking Boehner ignored — and settled into the same hard plastic chairs that have served as Washington’s toughest ideological fault line of the past 30 months.”
