These "journalists" are of the faux news gang. The most notorious gang in the MSM. They have sworn allegiance to the bushie empire. Faux uber alles is their mantra.
They write their gang signs on what is called newsprint ("a low-grade, machine-finished paper"). We write on dynamic electrons and our message speeds to the hearts and minds of the truth seekers via universal photons.
Brad has faux news nailed to the wall as propaganda meisters, and we bloggers who check it out know Brad is correct. He deserves many medals and I hope his efforts find prosperity.
As time goes on those faux news has raped with their delusion will know of it and become bloggers here and at other good blogs as well.
And together we will tell tales of faux news to the next generation of bloggers. It will be about the dark days of the unenlightenment in the MSM.
Bill Moyers on PBS (just aired the second episode) is in accord with the reality of the MSM too.
Our motto, inter alia, is "media matters, but newsprint is cheap!"

The mainstream corporate media is increasingly irrelevant to those who want to know the truth.
Kill your television. (Watch Olbermann, Stewart & Colbert on the internet for free, and even Moyers BUYING THE WAR.)
Stop paying for a daily newspaper whose sole purpose is to sell you advertising. And stop thinking that THE NEW YORK TIMES, THE WASHINGTON POST, or THE LOS ANGELES TIMES are friends of democracy or progressive values, they are not and haven't been since 2002.

Like Global Warming. Close to 100% of renowned scientists agree there is Global Warming. The CMSM gets one scientist for, and one against, for balance. How about just saying, "Close to 100% of renowned scientists agree there's Global Warming."???
And on FOX, just get the ONE quack scientist who says there's no such thing as Global Warming.
And on ANBCBSNNX, whenever they have a story showing hard evidence of Global Warming, just "say", "But there are 'others' who disagree."
You know, for "balance"!
What was the date when the CMSM stopped reporting the REAL NEWS? Anybody got that date?
Hannity and Limbaugh are the "others", who say there's no such thing. But they get 50% of the "balance". Close to 100% of scientists agree on Global Warming, but the CMSM portrays it as "50/50", "still up for debate".
It does take a slight greater effort to find out what the real news is, but we used to think that we didn't have to do that...that ANBCBSNNX was really telling us the truth.
Did anyone see Bill Moyers special, on the media? Our nation needs to be able to trust the CMSM. We don't anymore. Lots of propaganda, and there shouldn't be. We should trust the CMSM, and we should be right in trusting it. They broke that trust. Over and over and over and over, and still going...
Can we ever trust them again? Why should we give them a chance? They're not changing, since we've outed them! If they changed, we might trust them. I see no change.

Did you notice that recent article, where the Iraqi PM's aid said he didn't like what the Democrats are doing with this vote? That's just like this LATimes article. Think about it: Iraqi people and Iraqi's in their government, saying they don't like the Democrats? Sounds more like Limbaugh or Hannity or the GOP saying this!!!
Where there any articles mentioning REPULICANS by party name, quoted by any Iraqi's?
"We don't like that what the REPULBICANS are doing." Gee, I've never seen that, have YOU? The whole thing sounds like another corporate fascist infomercial...again...
Since when do Iraqi's mention the Democrat Party by name? "We don't like what the Democrats are doing." That sounds very odd to me, like maybe the American CMSM infomercial is now going worldwide. Maybe some new NRV's are in order, too? More fake news and propaganda?
Does that sound strange to YOU, articles in which Iraqi's are mentioning the Democrat Party by name, but never the Republicans?
"I'm in the Iraqi government, and I don't like what the Republicans in America are doing with their votes." Wouldn't that sound strange?
"I'm an Iraqi with no food or electricity, and I can't leave my house. My family just got killed as collateral damage. I don't like the Democrats in America."
Does that make sense to YOU? Or do these articles sound like more propaganda? That's a real stretch, more propaganda. We can't imagine that, can we? These articles are legit. They've lied about everything so far, but I believe there's Iraqi's saying they don't like the Democrats. Yeah, right...

I don't believe for a second that ordinary Iraqis know or care anything about our political parties and their differences. They are too busy just trying to stay alive and stay sane while grieving for their country.
Sometimes my 'mate' gets so turned off by watching MSM news on the major mainstream networks that he can't watch because he is very well read and researched and knows exactly where the 'lies' and misinformation are. But my feeling is that I want to know my 'enemy' and be aware of just what they are spoonfeeding the people.
Please check your local TV programming to see if you can still catch Bill Moyers' Journal on PBS called BUYING THE WAR. Very important info and helps to explain how MSM got so screwed up. Thankfully, Bill Moyers is back to assist our citizens in seeing the truth, as unpalatable as it is. We must know the truth so we can set ourselves free again, from the deception, corruption, and tyranny of this Bush regime. We must know where and how the damage to our democracy has occurred so that we can repair it.

Fortunately the Moyers MUST SEE program is available on the internet. For those with broadband, you have no excuse not to watch this important program.

It goes back to rather longer ago than 2002.
