Demand An Apology!! With MAJOR Update

-- by Dave Johnson

Chris Matthews compares Michael Moore to Osama Bin Laden!

DEMAND AN APOLOGY!,

on Hardball, Chris Matthews just blurted out that Bin Laden sounds like Michael Moore. Simple: Matthews should apologize. On the air. This has NOTHING to do with Michael Moore and everything to do with how far media figures can go slandering the left. And last I checked, Michael Moore didn't massacre thousands of innocent Americans.
And Crooks & Liars has the video.

Don't let Matthews get away with this! Are Democrats just fair game for ANY KIND of nasty attack and smear???

Update - Joining us in our call for an apology, driven by the blogs:

"You'd think the only focus tonight would be on destroying Osama Bin Laden, not comparing him to an American who opposes the war whether you like him or not. You want a real debate that America needs? Here goes: If the administration had done the job right in Tora Bora we might not be having discussions on Hardball about a new Bin Laden tape. How dare Scott McClellan tell America that this Administration puts terrorists out of business when had they put Osama Bin Laden out of business in Afghanistan when our troops wanted to, we wouldn't have to hear this barbarian's voice on tape. That's what we should be talking about in America." -- John Kerry
Digby's on this story as well, with a list of phone numbers to call, and a list of other bloggers.

Update - A MyDD commenter caught CNBC's Joe Scarborough saying something similar, but about Democratic Senators. Who is their enemy - other Americans? We have to answer back and let them know they can't get away with this kind of outrage. They can't be allowed to inject this kind of hate into the public discourse without a fight.

You have to remember that all these Bushit apologists have nothing else to say. They can't talk about the truths that make up today's news; they can't talk about the cowardly lying warmongering Bush, they don't care about what they say because their employers worry only about the bottom line, not about integrity or standards. They can't be so stupid that they don't understand what they are doing. Can they?

Tweety is a sniveling high school toadie to the homophobic right-wing jocks. This is the same right wing toady who was indignant about Hillary comparing Congress to a plantation and recently called Hillary a witch. MSNBC has been rapidly devolving into a moronic caricature of Faux News. Countdown is the only cable news show worth watching anymore.

I've been saying this for years: Why is anyone surprised when corporate media is not exactly in line with corporate interests? Corporate media and Republicans (and a lot of Demos as well) are identically the same thing -- tools of corporate power. If smart people can't seem to understand that (and undiminished surprise at media antics indicates that they do not understand it) then we really are doomed.

Corporate media is not asleep or lazy or stupid or any of the other things we are supposed to believe about them. They do their jobs -- advancing their masters' interests -- extremely well. Every day. To believe otherwise is delusion.

Who said these things:

"The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not 'insurgents' or 'terrorists' or 'The Enemy.' They are the revolution, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow - and they will win!"

"The motivation for war is simple. The U.S. government started the war with Iraq in order to make it easy for U.S. corporations to do business in other countries. They intend to use cheap labor in those countries, which will make Americans rich. "

"First, can we stop the Orwellian language and start using the proper names for things? Those are not “contractors” in Iraq. They are not there to fix a roof or to pour concrete in a driveway. They are MERCENARIES and SOLDIERS OF FORTUNE. They are there for the money, and the money is very good if you live long enough to spend it."

"I’m sorry, but the majority of Americans supported this war once it began and, sadly, that majority must now sacrifice their children until enough blood has been let that maybe — just maybe — God and the Iraqi people will forgive us in the end."

UBL? No, Osama Bin Michael Moore. Calling the terrorists "minutemen"? Hoping for the death of American children and contractors? blaming the war on a secret "cabal" in an idiotic, paranoid, rambling way? You're damn right MM sounds like UBL, and Mathews was more than correct in saying it and standing up to you thugs.

I'm baffled by blog wide calls for an aplogy. I mean a lot of people I read and respect are calling for one so perhaps I am missing something. But I say fuck it. Its too late for that. Just punch back. Just keep punching back. We are in the middle of fight, now is not the time for aplogies.

Scarborough hit the "Osama sounds like a Democrat" theme pretty hard with the incredibly sleazy Kellyanne Conway (who started it) and with Tucker Carlson.

Chris, be a man about it and apologize. You did wrong.
