If anything, I'd say the "press" is giving one last ghast at life trying to make us believe that what they say actually matters. Most people see
right through thier BS. Even Chris Mathews and the other ranters are sweating it.
Its kinda like the Big 3 networks of way back when. They had a stranglehold on us, we watched whatever crap they had on. Heck, how long was Dallas
and Full House on?
There's just too many outlets now, Jennings, Koppel, and all those other talking head has-beens are over. Thier agendas aren't selling and they
are running scared.
Now we have sources that are outside the mainstream media, we are NOT idiots like most media bigwigsl want us to be, we know when they are feeding us
a line, most people (I hope) know how to read a newstory.
Its very similar when some 120 year old movie critic reviews a movie and gives it 0.5 stars. Yeah, right, I'm gonna believe that guy? Just because
he like movies about gay cowboys, and there weren't any in it, it instantly is a bad movie. sheesh. Watch it and find out for yourself. And heres
a hint, if MTV is involved and you are over 17, its gonna suck.
On the other hand, with all these other news outlets, you don't know what to believe. Heck I'm making this whole thing up as I go. Just read
between the lines of the newstories, when they say "iraqi prisinor abuse". Which btw, they are detainees, not prisonors, big difference. And its not
friggin abuse, it may have been unappropriote, but remember in that same prison they also used to cut off peoples hands, shock em, poke out eyes and
all that. now THAT is abuse. Like to see half the coverage of what used to happen there than a naked dogpile of detainees.
btw- the best news comes from BBC, and stay very very far away from Chinese news, they have such a twisted agenda, you can't even read between the
lines, the stories themselves contridict themselves. I mean come on, I find it hard to believe that those detainees were forced to have sex with each
other. Wonder how far on the list China is after this middle east thing. Be a heckuva war, but they got lots of oil.. hmmmm
