Is Liberal Yahoo News An Anti-American Information Source?
by Mark on 2/3/2007 (14)

Yahoo! is the web's biggest meeting place, rated #1 overall in traffic, but does Yahoo have an insidious, anti-American liberal bent lurking in its closet? Many believe so.

Yahoo news stories almost always showcase deaths in Iraq, sympathetic viewpoints from forces hostile to America, and outright vicious name calling of Bush and his conservative administration. The pattern is well worn and painfully obvious. It's one thing to describe oneself as a news service, but a substantial measure of non-bias and journalistic responsibility come along with such a claim.

But hey, this is the Internet. Sometimes it's easy to forget that.

The greater question is, regarding Yahoo's folsom, left leaning slant, is Yahoo aiding and abetting the war on terror? Surely, Al-Qaeda and its key operatives surf Yahoo News on a daily basis, amicably to finger the pulse of American consensus regarding the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and the attitudes of the American public at home in general. One thousand Al-Qaeda spies could not inflict as much harm as a single day of Yahoo news threads do to our nation's cause, in my assessment. Yahoo surely has many friends in the Islamic world, indeed.

According to Yahoo, both wars are unwinnable, unprovoked, and unspeakable social evils perpetuated solely for America's oil lust and Bush's unbridled ego. According to Yahoo, civil rights in America lie slashed and bloodied by a flaying Draconian conservative sword, and that fomenting, breathless throngs of politically suppressed Americans are clamoring for their lost Constitutional freedoms, at direct odds with a Great Dark Christian Empire pounding them down back into place.

At least that's the world according to the guys at Yahoo, in my view.

That's how you lose wars, you know. By convincing the world you are losing. Who is to say that the Iraq insurgency wouldn't have caved and given up 2 years ago if liberal media had taken the alarmingly obvious stance of picking a side? The shocking reality is because Yahoo and similar liberal web based sites do not seem to be on our side.

Certainly, war deaths must be acknowledged, but Yahoo seems to cross the line, perhaps with sinister intentions. Maybe that's why we haven't yet won the war on terror --because liberal pages such as Yahoo are in the way, willingly."0" style="0" style

It's not that Yahoo or other news sources are scewing things because of some liberal adenda, it's that people in general find negative news more interesting. Watch any news broadcast and it's about bad things happening, not good. If there weren't so many bad things happening, there wouldn't be so much bad to report. It's not like the stories are fictitious either, they're real. Stop the bad stuff from happening and media outlets will stop reporting it.t </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

That's absurd. Yahoo is trying to propogate liberal doctrine through its web page, and it is working. What is impossible to quantify, is what affect Yahoo News has had in emboldening the enemy. It is my observation that it is probably quite significant.h="0" </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Furthermore, tends to be slightly right leaning. The best unbiased source is Yahoo is glaringly leftist, not only on the war, but on minority social issues, gay rights, feminism, democratic presidential hopefuls, you name it.

I think what I'm trying to illustrate is that yes, these events are happening worldwide, but is Yahoo's choice of stories that they post on their News Blog making the events even worse? I believe so. The enemy is not dumb. Also, Yahoo clearly "hand picks" articles that are far more often liberal in beliefs and values than not, thus abusing their massive web browser base to impart their leftist spin on the world.m </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Just because the truth is painful doesn't mean it's not the truth. More Iraqi people are dying under American Military occupation then ever dies under Saddam Hussain. We are the terrorists, if we look in the mirror long and objectively enough. I am ashamed and embarrassed to be an American. This is quite unfortunate, but America is no longer respected and loved, but instead we are hated and feared, and rightfully so. Look how many people we torture and murder ever darn day. I am not happy with our current administration. Not happy at all.

The question I am posing is, are anti-war sentiments prolonging the war? Impossible to say. </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

I say no... I find it hard to believe that the vast majority of insurgents even realize the general feeling in the US of what's going on, they've got much more important things in their lives to deal with. What the US feels is trivial when you're dealing with the values, feelings, and religion of an area. This war would be the same regardless of what others think. do you think for a minute George Washington would have given up when things looked dire if he saw that the world didn't support America? I don't. src="h </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

What do you think? Al-Qaeda doesn't have laptops with wi-fi? They are clever enough to make IED's. Ho Chi Minh admitted years after the Vietnam war ended that it was anti-war protests in the U.S. that kept the Cong fighting. He frankly admitted they wanted to quit in 1967, but the anti-war protests convinced him and his army that they would win sooner or later. Same scenario here. Al Qaeda knows our countrymen are not behind our country, and they will not give in. </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Never underestimate the intelligence and capability of your enemy. The FIRST thing they look for is to see if a war is being conducted under popular public accord at home. </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

do you honestly think that if the American people supported the war, the Iraqis would just magically forget their differences and the terrorists would just give up? I don't. </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Perhaps. You can't say for sure. This is one of those things I think we'll find out after the war is over, win or lose, but it looks like we will lose.h= </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Yahoo! News being accused of being skewed in favor of anti-Americans?!! That's ludicrous! I am from India and being a news junkie and scouring the web for news has made me come to the conclusion that Yahoo! News is easily the best and most reputed source of unbiased news we can ever hope to have. Yahoo! handpicks the best news sources and lets its readers read them for free. If most of the articles seem anti-American, it's probably symptomatic of a global mindset gradually inching aways from President Bush's war vision. Don't blame Yahoo! for that."0" st </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Like you said, you are from India. So is most of Yahoo! Enough said. </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>
