Gee, thanks so much, MSNBC [View all]

It's really great that you put all of this information together for us lefties to look at 10 years after the fact. DU will be all atwitter for DAYS while we marvel at the lies and outright crimes that were committed so that a cabal of court appointed neocon freaks could try out their deranged ideas on the people of Iraq. Oh, and to make a shitload of money for GE, too.

Your front page today is filled with hundreds of fascinating stories of great importance to us all, like what it's like to poop in a bag on a cruise ship, or the crisis of Michelle Obama's bangs. These things are important and define us as a nation. But in all of those stories, not a single mention or link to 'Hubris'. Funny, that. Of course, it would be too much to expect the other news corporations to mention anything about a broadcast of such major importance by a competitor and sure enough, there's not a whisper about it on any of their pages.

Oh, if only MSNBC had had a top rated show back in 2002 and 2003 with a powerful host with a huge reputation in the TV business who could have put out this information to a wide audience when it might have mattered. You know, a show to act as a counterweight to Chris Matthews' constant longing for the bulge in the crotch of our chief executive.

Oh, that's right. You DID have a show like that. Hosted by Phil Donahue. It was your number one show. It had higher ratings than Matthews' war masturbation fantasy hour. But Donahue didn't buy the lies and the sales campaign for the war. He pointed out the stinking bullshit funnel that that was being shoved down our throats. And he did this on his widely watched show.

Until you fired him. Your number one show's host. On February 25, 2003. Because he was speaking too much truth to too many people and was becoming a threat to the success of our big fun rush to war.

On second thought, fuck you, MSNBC.
