Chris Mathews Propaganda & Presidential Lies

Today Chris Mathews devoted his entire show to presidential lies. The entire show focused on Nixon & Clinton. Don’t we have questions about more recent presidential lies?

Does this ring a bell Mr. Mathews? “There’s no doubt that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction. There’s no doubt he’s amassing them to use …. I think [weapons inspector] David Kay will find more evidence [of weapons of mass destruction] as he goes forward …. It’s a hard task, but I have got great confidence that he can do this.” - Dick Cheney. I know, we are talking about presidents, not vice presidents…but in this case I am talking about the president, Dick Cheney.

Cheney said that there was “no doubt” about the Iraq WMD situation. There is no doubt that Cheney was telling a blatant lie. Don’t you think that Cheney’s little lie which has resulted in 10s of thousands of deaths, the destabilization of the Middle East and an increase in global terrorism might be a little more relevant in today’s world than Nixon references or Clinton’s lies that were meant to protect himself from personal embarrassment? Nice little distracting and deceptive propaganda piece Mathews! Your contributions to the corporate media’s effort to paint a false reality are notable. What’s next for you, an in depth expose and national discussion of Pinocchio? Think about it!
