More Fear-Mongering by Corporate Media

Here's an interesting little piece of non-news. I note the timing of such a piece dovetails quite nicely with the initiation of impeachment hearings of George W. Bush. Fear of another attack is what the neocons have been leading Americans around by the nose with for the entire Bush presidency, and now that his numbers are way down because many Americans are finally catching on to their tricks, we gwt CNN pushing more of this sensationalist garbage; garbage which the White House has no doubt whatsover had a hand in suggesting" at this time.

I think it's about time that Americans started to write to CNN, FOX, the Sinclair Group, etc., and tell them that they are going to hold these media organizations responsible for the misinformation that they have foisted on the populace. For it's only through the aquiescence and forknowledge of the corporate media that the war machine has been able to do what they have done. It would also be nice to see a list of the email addy's of the wives and daughters of the major stockholders and board members of these orgs. and send them a each drafts of letters that state that when the crimes of George W. Bush are brought into the light, that the complicency of these very people will be exposed.

Anyhow, take a look at this trash. They want you to be scared of an attack because a bunch of people think that it's possible that somewhere, somebody might be attacked by somebody, some time in the next ten years!!. Duh!!!!?? Tell us something new (as in news?) for chrissakes! And Los Angeles might have an earthquake some time in the next ten years as well. Hey! Boise, Idaho is going to have a Goddamn earthquake sometime in the next ten-thousand years as well! That's news. At least I was definite about it!

Ahh geez....Why do I try? Anyow here's the link. Note the picture they use. This tells you everything you need to know about the relationship between the Bush administration and the corporate media.
