An open letter to Christiane Amanpour

Ms. Amanpour (if that is your real name),

When you asked me to appear on your four-part "God's Warriors" series on CNN, I was happy to oblige. Even though I was still recovering from surgery, I invited you into my compound. I showed you priceless religious artifacts. I even let you drink from my water bowl.

And after all this hospitality, what did I find? A hatchet job on national television. You accused the Armed Revolutionary Forces (ARF) of committing war crimes against chew toys, yet you know that we canines are not signatories to the Geneva Convention. You portrayed Pug Life as some sort of radical fascist cult, even though I told you explicitly not to bring up such aspects of the ministry. And I gave you my Pug Manifesto expecting that you would read it word for word on the air, yet you made no mention of the document. Am I to believe that a 5,000-page manifesto slipped your mind? And do you know how much it cost to print that on the nice paper at Kinko's? Shame on you, Ms. Amanpour. Shame on you.

Your portrayal of canine Islam, while technically accurate, does not represent the public image that Pug Life Ministries seeks to cultivate. So do not expect my cooperation or courtesy in the future.

Sincerely,

Mugsy

Well stated! I am tired of the media twisting stories for the shock value. You hit the nail on the head!

We need to get you a guest appearance on The View or Dr. Phil or Oprah or somebody...maybe Larry King. Yeh, Larry King. You could sit there and talk to Larry King and tell him the truth. And, and Nancy Grace. Nancy Grace would probably love to set-in on Christiane Amanpour...you know how Nancy Grace is. Can't you just hear her now?

Personally, I was already disenchanted with Christiane Amanpour for not jumping in to cover the battle with Blue Bull. I kinda' thought that was a snub!

Exactly, James Beauregard. And I'm not letting Geraldo off the hook, either.

Thank you all for supporting the ongoing canine jihad.

I've chosen to show my support for Pug Life Ministries by bidding on the wonderful poster on eBay.

My word verification is hitcat. I'm sure you'd never condone such a practice, would you, holy one?

Ooh, I'm so disappointed in CNN now. Ms. Amanpour is not to be trusted.

It's FedEx Kinko's, Mugsy. Please don't ever forget to use the word FedEx whenever possible while blogging in an effort to drum up more business for them. My mother says that her husband's cushy job with FedEx is what keeps the deliveries of rawhide, toys, treats, and Eagles jerseys still coming in.

Ayatollah Mugsy said...

In my fit of anti-CNN rage, I inadvertently left out the FedEx, Eagle. No disrespect was intended to that non-brown bringer of rawhide and treats.

I love it. Beautifully put. Mugsy, you're a writing genius.
