It's happening! Slowly, belatedly, gradually and sometimes seemingly reluctantly, but nonetheless it really is happening.
There's a stirring in the land, the likes of which we haven't seen in a very long time. Maybe ever. And The Whispering Campaign is such a small part of it that I'm tempted to apologize for flogging it so relentlessly here. Really. I'd much rather buy you a drink and tell you a few jokes.
But instead I'm here to talk about the eight very powerful articles we've posted since last night. Three are excerpts from an interview with an Iraq Vet. Talk about Truth To Power!! Wow!
Two more are from Mark Morford's latest column. You have to read it. You just have to. And that's an order
Then there's one about the court case concerning Maher Arar and extraordinary rendition, and another about the Siberian permafrost melting and its inevitable effects on global climate change. Very newsworthy, most unlikely to appear at McPaper or FauxTV, and therefore well worth posting, we thought.
But there's one item in particular that we really want you to read, print, copy, and distribute. Our edited version is called Do Not F*ck With Cindy Sheehan!.
Yes, the original title was a bit more explicit. But we run a family site. And either way, we think it's fantastic. We found it at The Bulldog Manifesto. And at the moment, it's the featured item at The Whispering Campaign.
So: Please, please, please! Visit our site, print some pages, make some copies, spread these powerful articles around --- and bring some needed bursts of truth to the streets, in your part of town.
Being The Media has never been easier, nor has it been more fun. And it's a damned good thing, too. Because it has never been more necessary.
