The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Who is more disgusting—this slimeball who holds the entire southern region of his country captive? Or the useful idiots in the press that give him such favourable coverage?

I can't imagine the press fawning over Adolph Hitler. For some reason, we never saw them portray George Wallace in a favourable light. Why, then, do you think they feel so compelled to portray murderous thugs like Nasrallah as "benefactors" of their enslaved domains?

Hassan Nasrallah isn't a hero. He's a cowardly scumbag who hides in a bunker and puts his "followers" in the direct line of fire, between Israel and himself. He isn't popularly elected, either—he has used force, weaponry, and avarice to cow the entire population of southern Lebanon into submission.

And this is the idol of the press?

Has the media lost their entire connection with reality? Or are they actively working for the bad guys? And, if so, why can't they just be honest for a change, and admit it?

I'll be rounding up more lionization beyond the fold, if you're interested. You'd recognize many of the photographers involved, if you were following along during the past summer's war.
