CNN ran a story about the Department of Justice officials who had previously defended jihad terror suspects. A graphic referred to the story as “Department of Jihad?”
But now Blitzer says: “CNN had no intention of suggesting that the Justice Department supports terrorism. Lawyers at the Justice Department are patriotic Americans and we certainly regret any confusion that may have been caused by our graphic.”
Of course, the possibility that anyone employed by the Justice Department might not be patriotic is never considered; it wasn’t intended by the graphic, and Blitzer apologizes because it is an article of faith, an unquestionable dogma, that everyone in the government is patriotic, especially Leftists, for whom it is “right-wing” to question their patriotism.
Wolf Blitzer would have served his audience much better if he has launched an investigation of Muslim Brotherhood influence in the Justice Department and in the government in general. But we are still a very, very long way from that.
