Former CIA Analyst Tells Truth About Libya Intervention On CNN, Hilarity Ensues

Tyler Durden's picture

Former CIA analyst Michael Scheuer appeared on CNN and told his lovely blonde and brunette anchors the truth about what is really happening. The hilarious Stepford Wives reaction and the unprecedented cognitive dissonance the ensues is worth the price of admission.

Having chicks moderate a discussion about the CIA and military operations is about as much fun as having a chick be a play-by-play voice on an NFL game.  You get all sorts of messed-up references and stupid questions.

Reminds me of the stupid questions I get when my girlfriend asks me questions during a football game.

In all fairness, there are women who can accurately report the news in an intelligent manner.

The media just doesn't want to employ those women anymore. They recently fired the last one, for speaking her mind about Israel.

8 (as of this writing) junks---wtf????

Guess it's gotta be the Israel reference.....sheesh, talk about intolerant!

 

btw, I hadn't heard about the fired newscaster, Wdog; can you post a link?  Thanks.

edit: Nevermind.  You talking about Helen Thomas?  I thought it was recent event.

The media doesn't want inquisitive, thoughtful, resourceful, people in any respect period. The media is not here to inform you, it is here to sell you stocks and deodorant.

Unfortunately the women who can accurately reports the news, would be dismissed by many as ugly, mannish etc, and therefore undeserving of their attention. It's a lose-lose proposition- if she's attractive, dismissed as a bimbo, if ugly, dismissed as..ugly.

Oh, and there are men out there that are accurately reporting the news? You are focussing on the wrong thing. (Which I could respond to in detail but figure it is not worth it).

Hicham's picture

"I"m" focussing on the wrong thing? I'm pointing out the foolishness of attacking these anchors on the basis of (1) their gender and (b) their appearance. Ok there is accuracy, and there is intelligence. Accuracy is constrained by what the networks and people with power tell you to report on. However you can still be an inquisitive, intelligent news host within this admittedly limited framework. But my point is that people will complain about these women who do come across as idiots, while if a news host is at all ugly, they will tend to focus on her appearance rather than what she's saying-even if does have some merit. Take Chantal Hebert, who appears fairly regularly on CBC in Canada. She's extremely unattractive, yet her analysis is often damn good, but I guarantee a lot of people would simply dismiss her out of hand.  What this attitude produces is women like Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin who look great, but are completely useless.

Like look at Michelle Obama, and the shit people talk about her. Ok hate Obama and his policies, but ad hominem attacks on his wife and her appearance is just fucking stupid. Ok you may not consider her attractive (and attraction is pretty damn subjective, and besides the point with regards to her qualities as a political entity) but she went to Princeton, and Harvard Law school. Yes these places may be drone factories for TPTB, but for a black woman - whose last name isn't Clinton, Bush etc- to get accepted is a fucking achievement and says a lot about her determination, intelligence, and talent. Attacking her based on her appearance is just stupid.

/end rant. Thanks zerohedge for letting me get that off my chest.

PLEASE give me a woman on the news, 50-ish, big tits, who has a brain, to report.

I've always enjoyed Ron Paul's sensible budgetary and non intervention policies, however, I'm not pleased with his overt pandering to religious groups and his inherent capacity towards preaching his religious values.  He also likes to support candidates that build their case for policy around their religion.

juwes's picture

I will likely decline to vote in the next election.  The only way I will vote is if Paul is explicit in his separation of church and state without pandering to the religious zealots he has often associated with.

So for me it's Paul or I'm not voting.  I expect I'm in a small minority in the polls, but what else is new?

juwes I am not voting, nor have I ever voted. But if I did it would be for Paul

DollarMenu's picture

Some who attempted to get Ron Paul on the last ballot were

known as "Paulistas" by the  entrenched Republicans.

They cheerfully adopted the term to self-identify themselves to others.

However, good cheer was not enough to overcome the Morlocks 

who control the Republican caucus machinery.

They got McCain/Palin.

Such a deal!

beyondcollapse's picture

Your lack of voting is not something to be proud of.  Abstaining doesn't do anything to "bring down the system" it only emboldens those you seek to remove.  If you don't like any of the above, do a write-in at the very least.  Nothing changes, nothing gets fixed witha general attitude that not voting is best.  Freedom isn't just gonna be handed to you.

Arthor Bearing's picture

I don't know about you sir but my time is invaluable and I try to waste as little of it as possible ;)

You've heard of regulatory capture? That's what's happened to the voters. Thank TV

Arkadaba's picture

I think it goes beyond regulatory capture. I think it is the system itself. I do not know  a lot about the American political process but I do remember charges of gerrymandering being offered before the 2000 election. In Canada, we have the same issue - there is no proportional representation. Regardless of how I vote, I know who is going to win in my riding. 

FeralSerf's picture

There is an implied contract when one votes, i.e. an agreement to abide by the results.  There hasn't been very many candidates in recent history that would cause me to enter into such an agreement, especially considering the possibility of the other sonofabitch winning.  If you vote for a liar, thief, cheater, and killer then you are nothing but one of the same.  You are complicit in his crimes, an enabler.  If you have done this, please do the right thing and stop breathing ASAP.

Thank you.

I nominate for best truthiest answer ever. 

In other words, I lack no substance, no standing, no credibility, and no other resources to support my baseless repudiation of my antagonists argument.  Therefore I call clear and apparent foul upon the word craft of my opponent and declare my position unassailable. 

Excellent!

I tip my hat to you.

I won't waste my vote, so I just write in Ron Paul's name.

The State should not promote or show favoritism towards any religious or non religious group.

hey, juwes @ 1133209!  i thought randy paul was doing this "pandering to religious groups" thingy in his recent KY campaign. not so much, if at all, with the father, ron, imo. 

i see ron as making truly "moral" statements, quire often, and preaching his moral, much more than his religious values, politically.  i also see him as a practicing, confessing christian, and not trying to hide that fact about who he is.  as a presidential candidate he would be a suicidal fool to alienate the "evangelical" voting bloc.  i don't follow him all that closely, and i may be wrong, but i don't see him as a bush, jr, or even a randy paul, altho i have a dreadful feeling that he may begin to act like these guys, to win the nomination, and possibly the white house, depending on "how" he runs.  i think he can do it w/out the pandering, even if he stays in the republican party and even if he gets a shot at the presidency and his "opponent" goes evangelical. if he can't, fuk him, too!  he won't get slewie's vote, which hasn't seemed to bother any of these asswipes, yet...

even the evengelicals may be starting to see their Right To Life "horses" as largely a stable of psychotic, bankster-backed criminal fascists, who care absolutely nothing of life, especially human life, l don't care how you define it.  these evengelicals are not, generally, un-patriotic in the common, american sense. 

things are so fuked up, now, that even many in this voting bloc may be ready to put america first, even into the hands of a 20-21st century gynocologist, and let their God deal with the "baby killers" for a while, at his point, rather than their "elected" folks in DC.

now, i am sure that many who feel God is doing this to the nation because of reproductive choice for women will never budge.  the bible tells them not to, they feel, and, as far as i'm concerned, they are entilted to their opinions and beliefs, short of violence.  others, like a catholic practicing family planning and birth control, may be ready to say, "enuf is enuf!" and make the best choice for america, as they see it.

these damn broads are stupid

 

 No they are not. Each likely made more money last year than most of us.

As Tyler said, they are robots, pre-programmed with CNN propaganda. Although they ask all the right questions, reading from their notes, they really do not know how to digest the answers.  Engaging the discussion might endanger their jobs, so the word from the control room was clearly to get off the air fast.

Declaring the cunning sociopaths of the Progressive movement to be "stupid" or "dumb" only shows how ignorant the audience is. Those women are merely a symptom, an example of the larger problem.

Right you are Macholatte (what is that a really manly and strong coffee with mother's milk?). There is a difference between stupid and uninformed. If MSM had fact checking departments and in depth investigative unbiased reporting it would be different.

Re: Bahrain... never.

From the Asia Times,

"You invade Bahrain. We take out Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. This, in short, is the essence of a deal struck between the Barack Obama administration and the House of Saud. Two diplomatic sources at the United Nations independently confirmed that Washington, via Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, gave the go-ahead for Saudi Arabia to invade Bahrain and crush the pro-democracy movement in their neighbor in exchange for a "yes" vote by the Arab League for a no-fly zone over Libya - the main rationale that led to United Nations Security Council resolution 1973."

Somebody once said here that HC didn't like arab dick but preferred arab dykes. So supposing she burst a dyke and punctured a dick, does that mean that the dyke she burst in Bahrein was to puncture the dick in Tripoli? That's not bad for a geography lesson to a woman who only knows Washington is south of New York. And Arkansas is to the west.

It's great to be state queen when you don't have Julian peeking through his peep hole looking at your steaming scheme of geographical monopoly. So when does that Oil start flowing to Benghazi? Isn't that why we learnt geography; dykes for dicks...lubricated with sweet crude...its just so dude...wants me to go nude...for a prude who loves to brood, wild queen of the dyke that explodes.  

Not that I mind as I'm broad minded about broads.
