Nola.com Censors Carville!
~Editilla Notellas~ For inexplicable reasons, nola.com cut Carville's CNN piece to ribbons for his "Guest OpEd".
We cannot fathom why, but perhaps because the statements censored regard the Corps Engineering Failures, and nola.com runs globs of Corps Flash Ads. (We used to collect them at that link, but got so tired of it. Lately they have become relentless during this BP Oil Fail, ever determined to paint the Corps in a Media-Positive Light) Nola.com has been known to protect the Corps in the past over these lucrative Ads.
It is a pretty surgical hatchet job actually, but for mention of Duvall's Ruling, they completely censored all of Carville's many other statements referencing Corps of Engineers culpability in the devastation of New Orleans. And, oddly enough, they cut statements that Carville resonates from levees.org:
"We felt the effects of this neglect for the past five years, after rebuilding a city which was 80 percent flooded due to shoddy construction of flood control systems and levees by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers." ~"In case anyone misses the point here, let me state it bluntly: There is nothing natural about the great engineering failure of 2005 in Orleans and Saint Bernard Parishes. There is nothing natural about the environmental catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico today. Both were the result of shoddy engineering on the part of private industry, which was in both cases supposed to be regulated and overseen by the federal government."
