CNN launches Argumentum ad hominem attack (argument directed at the person) at Hamas leader. [View all]

Let me break this down.

CNN morning propaganda talking head PTH introduces segment by sagely noting the amount of hate spreading throughout the Middle East, teasing a segment about what dear viewer may interpret as a segment on how not to hate people so easily.

Au contraire, dear viewer.

Said PTH instead says she will play...hesitates*...nay, will READ hate speech from some unknown date by Hamas leader and spokesman Osama Hamdan, the usual religious hate zealotry so common on all sides and all places. Breathlessly with nodding head said PTH introduces head Chief PTH Wolf Blitzer to replay cleverly cut portions of an interview from yesterday Wolf "had" with Hamdan.

In the clip Wolf is seen bullying Hamdan, introducing the classic logical fallacy attack by asking Hamdan to defend his clipped words from a video recorded years ago, over the protests of Hamdan who says he knows what Wolf is up to and knows the words and no need to play video clip.

*(Note that the PTH had thought she was going to play a video and instead was supposed to read the words, the video belonged to Wolf, the Chief)

The video is played, of course, Wolf has a script to stick to.

Cut back to the interview and Wolf completes the argue mention ad attack by insisting Hamdan take back the words....demonize the enemy, attack their character as humans, ignore the current issues.

"Wolf, you have to be fair....", Hamdan is cut off.

"Is there any point in having Hamas even at the negotiating table in Cairo?", asks the morning PTH, cashing her check with a self satisfied toss of her coiffured head.

Followed up by a fair an balanced panel of three people all supporters of Israel and it's propaganda, moderated by same PTH.

Followed up by a cut to a Wall Street credit card commercial...propaganda sponsored by Bank of America.

Making money is fun and easy if you can find a cable news TV PTH job, but only the finest actors are accepted. The ones that also vitally come with no souls whatsoever. Hard to find actors with both, hence the immense pay scale.

All this is to cover for the FACT that Hamas has negotiators in Cairo as we speak, and Israel....does NOT.

Denial is not just a river in Egypt, it flows like wine in the rivers of American news propaganda.

Now that is how propaganda is done, folks, in the modern age.

Edit: apparently the guy is not even a leader, he is in Doha and CNN picked him up, for an interview that Wolf set up, to set up the whole propaganda master script.....he is good. Hamdan is using a dog whistle to the religious zealots in Palestine, just as politicians in America use dog whistles to their religious zealots.

One is condemned, the other is ignored. Both are to be condemned otherwise it is just the same old hate wrapped in another shiny package.
