The Screwing of Cynthia McKinney
From investigative reporter Greg Palast
“Have you heard about Cynthia McKinney, former U.S. Congresswoman?
According to those quoted on National Public Radio, McKinneyâ€™s “a loose cannon” (media expert) who “the people of Atlanta are embarrassed and disgusted” (politician) by, and she is also “loony” and “dangerous” (senator from her own party).
Yow! And why is McKinney dangerous/loony/disgusting? According to NPR, “McKinney implied that the [Bush] Administration knew in advance about September 11 and deliberately held back the information.”
Thatâ€™s loony, all right. As an editor of the highly respected Atlanta Journal Constitution told NPR, McKinneyâ€™s “practically accused the President of murder!”
Problem is, McKinney never said it.
Thatâ€™s right. The “quote” from McKinney is a complete fabrication. A whopper, a fabulous fib, a fake, a flim-flam. Just freakinâ€™ made up.”
