I just Snoped this and it is true !
Unbelievable! My question is:
Why haven't I heard of this before? -----
This is hard to believe. ABC News Bans Flag Lapel Pins Yesterday, the brass at ABC News issued orders forbidding reporters to wear lapel pin American flags or other patriotic insignia. Their reasoning was that ABC should remain neutral about "causes". Since when is support for preventing our death and destruction some sort of a cause? Since when is patriotism to be discouraged.I urge you to boycott ABC and its sponsors and affiliates.Please forward this to as many as you can, put ABC in the Garbage Can!!!!
Well as the saying goes
Here's another Pinhead running another Main Stream News Media - what a fine piece of work the owner of this station must be. I have no idea why a flag lapel pin would "offend" anyone or make anyone angry that the station is showing its patriotism in any way?
I guess some Pinheads dont get it. They think like someone else that we will remain namless that if you wear a flag lapel pin you are showing some form of false patriotism? Who knows but this is very sad.
I was listening to one of the many radio shows I tune into in a day when I'm working on a project and on one of them there was a caller who said his daughter was in Iraq.
One day she contacted her family back home to tell them that she would be on ABC news. A reporter visiting Iraq asked 60 soldiers which candidate they were going to vote for.
She was one of them so naturally she thought what a perfect opportunity for her family to be able to see her. In advance of the airing on TV she told them that 55 of the soldiers said they would vote for McCain, 3 said they were going to vote for Obama, and 2 for Clinton (must have happened before Clinton dropped out). This is what her family saw on ABC. The reporter only showed those 5 soldiers who said they were voting for Obama and Clinton and not one of the 55 who said McCain. Now I can't substantiate this father's story but if true it goes to show how biased the media is, manipulating the truth until it slants their way. I don't waste my time watching ABC or CBS & NBC news, I get most of it from the radio or FOX.
When I hear things like this is makes me shutter to think of the news we're missing because the liberal media wants to manipulate our minds....not unlike what you get living under a dictatorship.
Just wanted you all to see this email in response to the ABC banning flag lapel pins.
I watched this news story this email talks about and in fact wrote to ABC that of all the military men and women I know I could name 3 dozen right off the bat that are NOT for Obama's plans in any way and that it was amazing that they could only find Obama supporters - This story just proves what I've known all along - they searched out only those that would vote for Obama to put on the news. Just another Leftist Looney station - Its one thing to be fair - its another to be so biased that you distort the truth to the American public in hopes that they will "follow" along, and I can now see over and over again that main stream media distorts the truth on a daily basis to suit their whims.
