Darkness On The Edge Of Germany

Back in 2006, I wrote, “Baby We Were Born To Run–From The Wall“–but Reuters has put an entirely new spin on that headline! Betsy Newmark spots everybody’s favorite wire service praising Bruce Springsteen’s efforts in the twilight of the Cold War, with the headline, “Did the Boss help bring down the Berlin Wall?”

Frankly, this revisionism of the Cold War by the MSM cannot stand. We were told by no less an authoritative source as the BBC that a former actor who envisioned himself going on to bigger and greater things ended the Cold War, without firing a shot in the process. As he once wistfully told a German reporter, “I find it a bit sad that there is no photo of me hanging on the walls in the Berlin Museum at Checkpoint Charlie.”

And so do we.
