Salutin at The Star, I mean Al Starzeera: Everyone is mean to Muslims and yay for North Korea, and did I mention that I hate America?

Sony and the big U.S. theatre chains have The Interview pulled

The Interview — about James Franco and Seth Rogen being tasked by the CIA to assassinate Kim Jong-Un — from release. It got taken out instead of Kim. Forget the victory of Cuba over U.S. policy after 67 years or the crisis of the ruble. Alan Dershowitz says, “North Korea has declared war on our first amendment”…

In 1979 the Iran hostage crisis sent the U.S. into a cataleptic state over being abused and dissed by some cheesy non superpower (as opposed to the USSR/Russia)…

Edward Said, the elegant Columbia prof, literary critic and Palestinian advocate, wrote a book called Covering Islam . His proposition was: when military, political and economic weapons failed, the U.S. sent in the media. He tallied the masses of western reporters (freely allowed into Iran by its evil government) and how they overwhelmed criticism of the U.S. by dominating the coverage…

How did the Muslim/Arab world eventually counter the media assault? Not by censorship or indignation but by creating Al Jazeera, their own version of Nightline, and now the largest and probably best journalistic operation in the world…

I am getting it again: Islamonausea plus a strong distaste for this news outlet.
