What Spitzer's Problems Are Distracting People From

Posted by libhom Monday, March 10, 2008

This from Citizens for Legitimate Government's Lori Price:

Spitzer's Sex Life Is Weapon of Mass Distraction for Bunch of Bad News for Bush 10 Mar 2008 By Lori Price On Monday, we learned: The Iraq war will top 3 trillion dollars; a former Pentagon official has written a book attacking the CIA and other US officials over the US-led Iraq war; 5 8 US soldiers were killed in a Baghdad blast; an Iraqi tribal leader - the head of an 'Awakening Council' - and three others were killed in a Diyala province suicide bombing; CIA torture will continue, per Bush; the House Judiciary Committee has filed suit to force two White House officials to provide information about the firing of U.S. attorneys; more trouble for Carlyle group has surfaced; oil has soared to $108 per barrel; gas prices have reached a new record; a lawsuit has been filed claiming that the Fish and Wildlife Service is now in breach of its own mandate; an AP investigation has revealed that a vast array of pharmaceuticals are in the US water supply. Oh. Last but not least: The Dow and Nasdaq are down hundreds of points, again. But, here is the mainstream media's headline: Spitzer Is Linked to Prostitution Ring.

It is important to keep these things in mind during the Spitzer media circus.

  2. Good point. It seems as if any time there might be attention paid to really important issues, some new scandal erupts that the media can jump all over and the other stuff continues to take a back seat.

  4. I am somewhat amazed that the meltdown of the economy regained its headline footing so quickly. I am equally dismayed that the sharp uptick in Iraq violence hasn't.

  6. Yes. The so called "liberal media" can't focus without a sex scandal or a pro-US stance for more than five minutes. It sickens me to think of the headlines in the last seven to eight years...

  8. The economy isn't going anywhere (exactly the problem), we are immersed in a Dem. primary which shows once again that we Dems have very little self-discipline when it comes to promoting our candidates. The media's been more focused on all the snark than it has been on the substance.

    The Spitzer scandal is a short respite from all the problems we face. It'll have its 15 minutes, and away it'll go. We don't have to do anything but watch the action on the field, and then the processes in place, part institution driven, part personality driven, do their jobs.

    In the 70s I watched the Watergate hearings as if I were tuned in to the ultimate soap opera. You could cite other distractions" sports, TV, Britney Spears, etc.

    Tis human nature. At least there are legal dimensions to this distraction.
