It seems that the press is becomming the mouthpeace and protector of the Democratic party. In the recient economic news they fail to mention that the the Bush taxcuts have produced more tax revenue than the Clinton taxes did. The greedy bankers who are forclosing on the people in New Orelans are evil, but fail to mention that the Hedge Fund that John Edwards worked for is fore closine on 31 families in New Orleans and the the media explains that Edwards cares about the poor. They jump all over Rudy Guilani for his daughter saying she likes Brack Obama. The media calls this a disfunctional family and he is not a good person to lead the country. Al Gore son gets picked up again for drug posession and the media gives him space to deal with hsi problem. They blas Tom Delay for his Crimes, which all but one has been dropped and he is asking for a trial but it hasn't happened yet. people question Harry Reids land Deals, Diane Finestein \giving business to her husbands companies, William Jefferson selling political favors for cash, Nancy Pelosi hiring her son when he has two other full time jobs which no one knows what he does. The media is silent. You have a Republican Senator aledgely makeing a racial remark in college and they over look a Democratic Senator who was a member of a terriorist group (KKK). And wwe can not forget the drunken Senator who is tqlked into turning him self in for driving off a bridge and killing a lady and the press tells us that this poor man has suffered from a painful back injury from the crash. and he is made out to be the hero because he saved himself. Then the democratics want to bring back the fairness doctrine but only for consertive talk shows. They beleive in freedom of the press, but only when it is positive press for them, and freedom of speech is only when you agree with them. I for one do not read the mainstream press or listen to the major network news. I get my news from the internet, talk radio, and Fox news. They at least tell you where they are comming from and don't sell oponion as fact.

"We can not forget the drunken Senator who is talked into turning himself in for driving off a bridge and killing a lady." This particular incident is worse than most realize. Consider the following. In the over 70 years that bridge has stood at that spot exactly one car has ever driven off it. Simply put, it is a safe bridge without any unusual difficulty required to cross it safely. President Nixon hired a private investigator to go up and check the crash site out right after it happened and give him a personal report as to what really did transpire. The PI wrote about it in his memoirs many years after the fact. His report to Nixon? It was not an accident. The car was delibrately driven off the bridge. So, anyway, sure I agree with you. The press has become pretty bad about supporting the dumbocratic party, not that I like most retardicans better.

I would be refering to the man I call, "Living breathing proof that nepotism weakens the nation." That is, Senator Ted Kennedy. Of course, there are quite a large number of other politicians to whom this description applies.

Well ABS, NBS and the rest of the alphabet soup has a clear agenda. Just roll on newsbusters or most any site on the net and you'll find the alphabet's glaring omissions and misinformation. No matter your stance, its much better to get your information from multiple sources and the internet does this perfectly. In fact, the alphabet soup is quick to degrade and insult anyone that contributes or even uses the alternative media outlets (blogosphere is first in line for them). As for the politicians, they definitely do need a wake up call. They work for the people first, not the party first. At least the american public did rise up (emailed, phoned, shouted) when the congress tried passing a bill the people did not want. The scary part is, instead of realizing what the people wanted, our politicians decided to blame them and their ability to speak out for what is wrong with the country. Whats even worse, is that the most voluminous people are being targeted by the politicians just for utilizing their first amendment rights. Seriously, this is very discouraging and if allowed to continue, there is no telling who is next.

I find it interesting that a report from AP that I read within one hours of it being posted on Yahoo News is different from the one being reported in the papers and the TV. They don't lie but fail to present the full story. Several months ago they reported the Bloodiest weekend in Iraq and told of the nubmer of American Troops Killed and how the Iraq soldiers were not up to standard. The AP report I read stated that the number of Americans Killed was high but it was in a battle, along with Iraq soldiers, against a suscide camp where there were over 400 insurgants being trained to attack a relious community during the holidays. All the insurgants were either killed or captured in a two day battle and the attack was carried out by the Iraq Army working with the US troops who were acting on information supplied by the local civilians. Paints a different picture that what was reported. Don't for get the great reporting that went into Abua Gray scandle. The US Army releasedthe information that they were invesgating the charges in January and had releived several officers from duty. It took the news media to report the case until April. They waited until Sweeps week to break the story. it wasn't big news until nothing else happened to make a profit for them. At least Rush tells you where his point of view is and you can decide what to beleive and not proclaiming that you are printing "all the news thats fit to print"

I'm not an economist and I've heard the claims about how tax cuts increase revenue, etc. and that makes sense to an extent. However, if only the rich have any money to spend the economy's not going to be very healthy. I've recently read some reports about how inflation is still low but my own pocketbook says different. The only ones claiming there was a recession near the end of Clinton's term where the Bush people; if people hear that often enough they're going to get scared into causing a recession! Same thing goes with the fear-mongering the Bushies have done ever since 9-11. Cheney more or less said in 2004 that if a Democrat were elected we'd all die! Remember that "mushroom cloud over New York and Miami" statement he made prior to our invasion of Iraq? Sorry, I was much better off after 8 years of Clinton than I'd been before and I'm much WORSE off now after nearly 7 years of Bush. No website or FOX News report or list of statistics is going to change that. Most of the people I see in my daily life, REAL people, not wealthy Wall Street investors, agree with me. It seems the only way the mainstream media isn't going to be accused of liberal bias is if they make stories up to make Bush look good, because there sure aren't any TRUE stories that do that. Annie
