The Relentless Assault of O’Reilly

Paul Harris of the Guardian Unlimited (?¢â??¬???Best daily newspaper on the world wide web?¢â??¬ ) is convinced that Cindy Sheehan is a one-woman tipping point in public opinion about Iraq. Republican ?¢â??¬???analysts?¢â??¬  realize all is lost and are being themselves, only more so. Let’s peek inside Paul’s world:

Republican analysts have responded with a ferocious attack on Sheehan and her supporters. This week an attack ad produced by a Republican strategist will start airing on CNN and Fox. It features Deborah Johns, whose son is serving in Iraq. Johns explicitly attacks Sheehan. ‘Cindy Sheehan certainly does not speak to me,’ Johns says in the ad.

Other attacks have been more brutal. Sheehan has been the subject of relentless assault by right-wing radio and TV commentators such as shock jock Rush Limbaugh and Fox TV’s Bill O’Reilly. She has been accused of anti-Semitism over remarks about America’s policy towards Israel and dismissed as the dupe of left-wing groups.

Harris gets ?¢â??¬???attack?¢â??¬  in four times in the first 59 words, a density that might make a North Korean propagandist (with an end of month quota on the word) blush Guardian red.
