How can it be that the biggest story on the news at the moment is about John Edwards and his affair?
John Edwards is not running for the Democratic nomination. He is not running as a Vice Presidential candidate. He is not campaigning for either Senators McCain or Obama. Why is the media running around like a chicken with its head cut off over a story that in no shape or form matters? It is simply because the American media, ran by Caucasian males, like to hear titillating illicit sex stories about one of their own. It is a sad hypocrisy about America in general. In public, the media and government claim to be against pornography and any sexual conduct outside of heterosexuality, when privately, these very acts are entertained and encouraged. The facts speak for themselves.
The real story is taking place in what was formerly the Soviet Union. Georgia, a province of Russia is being repeatedly bombed by Russia. Georgia, claiming independence, is under attack for its democracy. Georgia has been calling for the U.S to help them. So far and the media is always shaky with figures, more than 2,000 Georgians have perished in the bombing. If the U.S. DOES come to the aide of Georgia, it will result in the THIRD conflict that the U.S. will have a hand in, simultaneously.
Think of the tax dollars, the billions of dollars that will go overseas to finance this “war.” Where will the troop numbers come from? A draft, perhaps? Will a war be the propellant to McCain getting his foothold in the White House?
With those issues on the horizon, why isn’t the attack on Georgia taking prominence, center stage, instead of this ‘John Edwards Cheated on Sick Wife’ ridiculousness? Maybe this is being done purposely by the media to keep you and I in the dark about what is REALLY the story of the day.
