my point in linking to the yang thread is about the current witchhunt.
i'm quite peeved at having this story: scott ritter say iraq election cooked, iran plans for war
'signed by bush
, -quashed by what are obviously neocon influences. this WAS news, and it IS news. it is not a 'leftist agenda'. it IS the
reporting of something which actually happened, i.e. 'news'.
not only was it moved once, from ATSNN submission to 'current events' at ATS, it was then moved AGAIN by none other than FredT buttonclicky to Below
this thread, however, is left to stand as some kind of authoritarian statement of truth.
these stories are 'voted' as 'worthy' for ATSNN or 'unworthy'.
this seems democratic, yet it would be simple for a team of neocon desk agents to 'cook' the results by purposely voting as a team, while the good
natured 'left'(center, really, if we could have a wave of truth like a breath of fresh air) isn't so machevellian, imho.
what if during the witch hunts of yesteryear, they had let the witches live, and killed the 'christian leaders' instead?
here is a link to the methods of the present day 'christian mafia'
. great expose,
