Michael Crichton bad, Roland Emmerich good
Completely unbiased Columnist foams at the mouth as he enters a State of Fear
Michael Crichton given the Michael Moore treatment. In which someone named Wayne Madsen gets premium space to vent his Vast Right Wing Conspiracy fantasies about how...
Science fiction writer Michael Crichton, well known pawn of Murdoch Media, salivating lackey of Capitalist Corporations and demoniser of scientists, resorts to McCarthyite tactics to push his sordid and destructive agenda at the behest of Bush, Murdoch, neoconservatives, mega-media perception managers and other corporate shills of multinational corporations and their political allies who think nothing of stooping to all sorts of chicanery to muddy the waters in order to invade popular culture to advance fanatic and lunatic right-wing ideas and agendas...
...and why one shouldn't buy Harper Collins books or watch Fox News.
Or something to that effect.
Crichton's crime against humanity?
He's written a novel that takes a dim view of environmentalists, global warning and "scientific consensus".
As they kept shouting at Christians about The Da Vinci Code... it's only a work of fiction!
But back in liberal PC land different rules apply. Madsen proves once again that there's no crazy conspiracy theorist like a left-wing conspiracy theorist especially when he's attacking nebulous vast right-wing conspiracies.
Talking about "invading popular culture":
Madsen hasn't noticed that the villains in every Hollywood political thriller are always members of right wing cabals - funded by "the industrial military complex" - secretly manipulating the CIA and the FBI to further their devilish right-wing fascist schemes for world domination. Perhaps Madsen hasn't watched enough movies, or TV shows, or public broadcaster funded documentaries - or then again perhaps he has. He obviously labours under the liberal fantasy that Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 and Roland Emmerich's The Day After Tomorrow are not exercises in propaganda whilst Michael Crichton's State of Fear definitely, absolutely, and evilly is.
Memo to Wayne Madsen: Wasn't The Day After Tommorow bank-rolled, produced and released by 20th Century Fox? You know, the studio owned by Rupert Murdoch. Some conspiracy...
Check out Scientists warm up to Day After Tomorrow They hope it will spread awareness about global warming featuring such well known right wing shills as Al Franken, Al Gore, Robert F. Kennedy Jr, various scientists and activists, and the team from Moveon.org.
