Michael J. Frosch, as a "Special Guest Columist," wrote this op-ed in
the "Metropolitik" column of yesterday's, February 21, Metro New York
("NYC's #1 Free Daily Newspaper"). In his op-ed Mr. Frosch predicts
"business as usual" in tonight's debates, as CNN's John King will allow
the warmongering over Iran to continue:
"Metropolitik: New war? Debate could be final decider"
It is safe to predict that Ron Paul will once again be the sole voice
of reason on Iran, when he debates the unashamedly hawkish Santorum,
Romney and Gingrich in Arizona tomorrow.
But whether this trend will continue depends on the moderator, CNN's
John King. Will he allow the debate to be framed by the dangerous
propaganda that has pervaded much of the reporting on Iran, or can he
force the candidates to confront surprising new intelligence on Iran
that vindicates Ron Paul's pleas for restraint?
Sadly, the former scenario is far more likely. Even as the
military-industrial complex continues to point its apocalyptic priapism
at Iran, many in the media are sharing in the fluffing duties.
