The Media’s Distorted View of the Middle East
Happy Hanukkah for our Jewish listeners.
John’s extended boralogue commences with an overview of the fiscal cliff Kabuki theatre playing out in congress. Then it continues into the changing western perceptions of truth and how this affects political correctness and what the media report. John’s cites paragraphs from Melanie Phillips’s new book, “The World Turned Upside Down.”
From there we move into the guest segments, the first being Phyllis Schlafly from Eagle Forum (www.eagleforum.org). Mrs. Schlafly presents an exposition of how the three rules of political correctness are killing our ability to have meaningful discourse because they are not truth-based.
Then this theme is continued as we go for a summary of the changing Middle East chessboard and the distorted secular media view covering these conflicts. Barry Rubin is director of the Global Research in International Affairs Center (GLORIA) in Israel and his editorials appear at (www.pjmedia.com).
Today’s show is well-packed with information.
