Does The Phony/Fraudulent/Bogus/BS Richard Engel Sochi Computer Hacking Story Taint Engel’s Journalistic Integrity?
War69.com had the utmost respect for NBC’s Chief Foreign Correspondent, his reporting seemed to be unbiased, courageous, and filled with intelligent and cogent commentary. Is all of that lost because of one fraudulent story on computer hacking? Probably not but until Richard Engel apologizes and explains why he lied and make no mistake he lied, fair minded people will always have a scintilla of doubt when Richard Engel reports on stories in the future.
On February 4, 2014 it was clear to any tyro tech watcher that Richard Engel was lying when he declared that his computer and cell phone were hacked immediately upon entering Sochi. As you watched the story the questions started, did he click a link in his email, did he visit a tainted web site, but you got no answers and it made zero sense and it was obviously deliberate to juice up the story and get ratings.
But we thought Richard Engel was all about getting to the truth not about misleading headlines and shady reporting. So it makes one wonder, with a computer story it is not easy to lie and make up facts but when you are covering political stories, revolutions, ideas, war, human rights, it is very easy to obscure, shade, manipulate the truth.
Did Richard Engel employ the same tricks he used in Sochi during his coverage of the Arab Spring, particularly his reporting in Egypt and Libya?
Until he explains his Sochi hacking lies, questions will always loom about the entire scope of his journalistic career.
On Charlie Rose he did make one admission of obscurity in regard to Egypt. He told Charlie Rose that there were many anti-Semitic statements from the Cairo protesters and there were many instances of anti-Semitic graffiti. Yet on NBC news or during any of his reporting Richard Engel never mentioned this fact once.
Engel during the entire Cairo coverage never mentioned any anti-American or anti-Israeli sentiments coming from the protesters, he even went out of his way to feature protesters who declared this had nothing to do with America.
But after returning to New York from his coverage of the Libyan revolution, Richard Engel decided to admit the truth and reveal that the Arab spring was partly anti-American and anti-Semitic in nature.
In 2014 we have the same problem as we had in 1914 or any year, the truth is difficult to find. And now that we have idiots who think Twitter is an actual news source, the lies fly to your screen in miliseconds.

Arthur Chu’s Advice For Success, “Play The Role of a Champion”, Works on Jeopardy and in any Endeavor.
Simple advice but if employed with full confidence not only can it work on Jeopardy but it can propel a person to new heights in any endeavor:
The only reason I had that amount of success was that I had anticipated it would be like that and I had drilled myself to be unemotional, to be completely focused on the game, rehearsing game play over and over again in my head because I was focused on winning the money. I put myself in a certain mode. I think I mentioned that I have some experience as an actor, and I was like, “I’m going to be playing a role and that role is of an unstoppable Jeopardy! champion.” An unstoppable Jeopardy! champion would look a certain way and talk a certain way. He’d be hyper-focused on the board. He wouldn’t react emotionally to any setbacks. He’d lean forward and be tense. And that’s almost a character I was playing on the show.
David Kaiser Lies About Obama Civilian Defense Force In NY Times Op-Ed Piece Denying Authorship of Urban Legend “Something Of Historic Proportions” Blog Post.
Does a faux intellectual deserve to have his name attached to a half baked anti-Obama blog post when the intellectual in question lies about a factual piece contained in the propaganda laced attack against Obama?
Does anyone understand my previous paragraph, good because I agree it needs to be written in a simpler fashion.
What you have is a so called intellectual named David Kaiser, oh he is a history professor as well, which explains his lack of research and intellectual integrity, hey we get it, the anti Obama blog post that somebody claimed was written by Kaiser is full of lies and crackpot theories but there is a possibility of truth contained within, yet Kaiser assumed it is all lies and so we ask again, does this professor deserve to have his name associated with such anti Obama rhetoric when he feels the need to lie about Obama’s election year pledge to build a civilian national security force that is bigger than our military.
It is not like Obama actually said this:
Obama, “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve our national security objectives that we set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.
The above can’t be true, it can’t be true because history professor David Kaiser said it was not true:
David Kaiser, “piled on top of outlandish claims like the one that Mr. Obama promised to “create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders.””
The problem is Mr. Kaiser that Obama said exactly that, technically he called for the civilian national defense force to have the same funding as our military but in context that part of the inane anti Obama blog post was truthful, we find it funny that even when refuting authorship of such a crazy urban legend blog post, Mr. Kaiser and the NY Times felt the need to lie about what Obama actually said and by the way not one person in the media asked him what he intended to do with this civilian national security force.
It would be crazy if we had proof of Obama saying this, like on Youtube
War69.com does not believe in the conspiracy theorists, we think the millionaire Alex Jones is great at creating millions of dollars for himself and lying and lying and lying some more while none of his fear mongering comes true. We believe the right wing reactonaries like Mark Levin use the above Obama quote to stir up their Marxist fantasies about Obama.
The more likely truth is that Obama was talking bullcrap, he did not know what he was saying, he thought he was trying to combine patriotism with his liberal minded big government ideas of service, some sort of FDR New Deal military version of the Civilian Defense Corps. Basically he was pandering to a military crowd without realizing the kind of fear such talk could foment. Here we are 6 years later and Obama has not even spoken about such a force, not even taken one step to create such a force, of course the media could have asked him about it to expose his political naivete but this is not the main issue.
The main issue is that David Kaiser and the NY Times feel they have to lie about this and pretend Obama never even said it. Too funny.
Paul Pabst, CNN, TMZ, Lead The Media Vultures/Ghouls/Smiling Paparrazzi That Invoke Their Hollow Souls Onto The Death of Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Damn this media centric world has turned into a hollow shell led by hollow people and the scum papparazzi or is it paparazzi, who knows but certainly they have won, are they not basically in charge. I applaud Alec Baldwin for cursing them out, including that pseudo Fox reporter who now stands outside the apartment of Philip Seymour Hoffman, waiting to exploit grief, to exploit the living and the dead, to exploit us all.
Which brings us to Paul Pabst, CNN, TMZ and the other 3 letter media whores that dot the internet and mainstream media landscape.
Who is Paul Pabst and why is he commenting on the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, is he a friend, a relative, no he’s some media d-bag that inserts himself into the death of an actor, why? I don’t know Paul, you tell us why your street interaction is important, is this a murder mystery, do we all not know how it ends, so tell us Mr. Pabst, what relevance does this have with anything:
Hoffman is spotted walking along Greenwich Street by Paul Pabst, executive producer of the syndicated “Dan Patrick Show.” Pabst is with his wife and his sister, who plucks up the courage to say hi to Hoffman. The actor — bundled up in “a big, puffy coat” — appears surprised a stranger recognized him, Pabst says on his show. But he still responds, giving Pabst’s sister “a half high-five” before continuing on his way. Pabst says his sister remarks that Hoffman seemed “out of it.”
Mr. Pabst, please shut up, you said hello to an actor on the street, who cares, can you just shut your mouth, why are you contributing nonsense to a tragic story.
But this is what rules the day, somebody snaps an innocuous picture of an actor drinking at a bar or sleeping on a flight to NYC, normally it would not be worth much, it would simply be an invasion of privacy that every clown with a cellphone believes they have the right to invade. But now that actor has died, this is your big chance, how many thousands of dollars will the 3 letter whore pay for these pictures which have zero relevance to the story.
But you don’t need the money, right, you can’t be destitute if you are flying to NYC or hanging out in a bar in Atlanta or the producer of some bullshiite radio show but you do it anyway because this is the culture, the culture of zero respect, the culture of the smiling paparazzi that sit oustide the apartments of tragedy. All one has to do is see their smiling faces and know this is the new media landscape, this is Media 2.0 or 3.0. or F*CK.0
What does it matter we say, we are not famous, we are not millionaires, they are in that game not us.
NBC Nightly News with the esteemed Brian Williams ran that TMZ picture, a meaningles picture, yes, which brings it more to the point, what is the point, what is news, what is this new disrespectful culture?
Beats Music Is Lying About Unlimited Downloads in Their Super Bowl Commercials. No Real Music Downloads Allowed.
Did you watch the Beats Music Super Bowl commercial and think what an amazing deal “unlimited downloads” is, “Unlimited Music Downloads” for 10 or 15 dollars per month, I’m sold, the problem is you must read the fine print:
As we are not a download service, you cannot download MP3 music to own directly from Beats Music, or upload songs from your computer to Beats Music via iTunes.
Beats Music conveniently left that part out of their Super Bowl Ads. We’ll stick with Rdio and Spotify, one hundred percent free streaming. These celebrity infused pumped up companies need to learn about trust and honesty and stop thinking that having Dr. Dre and Trent Reznor involved will be enough to pimp your product.
Jeopardy Champion Arthur Chu is the next Ken Jennings (74 Wins in a Row) Challenger. Chu’s Random Category & Value Choosing Strategy is Highly Effective & Inspires Jealousy and Hatred from the Twitter Trolls.
Our sources say he has won a minimum of 10 Jeopardy games in a row, currently he is at 4 wins in a row as the regular Jeopardy game takes a three week hiatus and the new Jeopardy Battle of the Decades begins, this stretch covers the 1980’s.
Arthur Chu’s strategy of choosing different categories and different question values is serving him well. Chu never follows a category from the lowest value to the highest and usually never chooses the same category in succession. This tends to disorientate the other players as they don’t get used to the vibe of a particular category, we don’t know why more players don’t practice and employ this strategy.
The Hateful and Jealous Twitter tweets that are referencing Arthur Chu is an example of why Twitter sucks and will never become the dominant platform that the media thinks/wants/needs you to believe. Why does anyone need to read the insecure and ignorant comments that dot the Twitter landscape? Only a Gutless loser would attack someone on Twitter and in this case many Jealous Gutless Losers are omnipresent in the Twitter universe.
If you want to attack someone’s ideas, go for it, that is how America was founded, if you want to call someone in the news media an idiot for saying idiotic things, all fair and it comes with the million dollar territory. But to attack someone’s appearance, race, religion and maybe worst of all, attacking someone’s well earned success, those are the tools of the spineless robots, those are the Twitter trolls, they are the true denizens of the gutter.
Review: Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee” Should Be Renamed “Comedians Without Scripts Are Not Funny and Very Boring”
This Jerry Seinfeld TV/Internet Venture was a nice experiment, further proving that comedians without scripts are boring and unfunny.
And remember that most of those scripts are written by other writers hired by the frontman.
It is rarely Jay Leno, it is mostly unnamed comedy writer.
