What Liberal Media?

Ed Morrissey, at the Captain's Quarters blog, has something important that you should look at....especially if you are a liberal who thinks that there is a conservative slant to the media. Actually, if you are a liberal who thinks that there is a conservative slant to the media, you are most likely behind any help that can be offered here....

So anyway, Ed Morrissey has the original AP news story about this new Osama audio tape where he talks about how Moussaoui and how he wasn't involved in 9/11. In the part below he is talking about prisoners at Guantanamo. The original sound byte went like this:

"The terror mastermind did indicate that two suspects had links to the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon: "All the prisoners to date have no connection to the Sept. 11 events or knew anything about them, except for two of the brothers," bin Laden said [emphasis mine -- CE]. But he did not provide names or elaborate further and it wasn't possible to determine if or where they were held."

However, they released only "exerpts" of the original story in which the crucial admission that Guantanamo held actual 9/11 conspirators is....omitted:

"And then I call to memory my brothers the prisoners in Guantanamo — may Allah free them all — and I state the fact, about which I also am certain, that all the prisoners of Guantanamo, who were captured in 2001 and the first half of 2002 and who number in the hundreds, have no connection whatsoever to the events of September 11th..."

Notice how they not only don't include the admission, but strategically cut OBL off in order to make it sound like he is saying the opposite of what he actually said. If you only read the second one you would leave with the impression that there were no 9/11 conspirators at Gitmo...which is a much more liberal-friendly news item than the reverse....which (un)fortunately turns out to be the truth.

Since it was Ed Morrissey who brought this to light, I'll let him close:

"The AP wants to cut off Osama before he admits that Gitmo holds two accessories to the 9/11 attacks. One would think that a news organization might have found that somewhat, oh, newsworthy."

Newsworthy indeed.
