FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
All the Propaganda That’s Unfit to Print
The list rate for a full-page advocacy advertisement in the New York Times is $167,157. The New York Times charged Moveon.org $64,575.
Move.org receives significant funding from billionaire George Soros, who spent millions of dollars in 2004 in a failed attempt to prevent President Bush’s re-election. Soros’s political action committee America Coming Together paid the third largest fine ever to the Federal Election Commission for extensive violations of the Federal Election Campaign Act. Soros was convicted of insider trading in 2002.
Dan Oliver, CEO of W Ketchup, reacted: “Democrats have long likened the Iraq War to the Vietnam War, and now they are playing their traditional role of undermining our military. Having a foreign-born, criminal billionaire fund, and the New York Times subsidize, an advertisement accusing a loyal and distinguished general of treason is the height of hypocrisy.”
In 2002, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton voted to authorize the invasion of Iraq, saying: “it is with conviction that I support this resolution as being in the best interests of our nation.” After Petraeus’s testimony she impinged on his integrity by saying: “The reports that you provide to us really require the willing suspension of disbelief.” Clinton has refused to condemn the Moveon.org/New York Times advertisement.
Bill Zachary, Chairman of W Ketchup, commented: “Last month House Majority Whip James Clyburn commented that positive developments in Iraq would be ‘a real big problem for us,’ demonstrating the vested interest the Democratic Party has in America’s defeat. Although the political pundits may be predicting that Hillary Clinton will be our next president, we refused to believe that the American people will select as commander-in-chief a sixties liberal who condones the labeling of our top general in Iraq a traitor.”
Democratic presidential candidates Barack Hussein Obama and John Edwards have also failed to criticize the Moveon.org advertisement.
