20. Priorities of objections....Country vs Personal and persecution.
Edited on Thu Feb-10-05 09:32 AM by higher class
He is obviously a shill for the Republican Party because the person who pays for Talon News is a Republican operative...Eberle.

It is obvious that the White House set up this plant.

He personally is involved in a major event that involves breaking laws - disclosure of undercover agents - by his interview of WIlson disclosing an internal CIA memo that other journalists had not seen.

No one should be able to get a press pass under a false name.

If he, a person who hardly writes a word, and posts other people's stuff on a website calling it Talon News, the door is open to news writers who are more legitimate to get in...Josh Marhsall, Will Pitt.

It is doubtful that he, a Republican operative, would be a physical danger to Bush. It is doubtful, that other press pass holders, get in without Secret Service or FBI scrutiny, therefore there is probably little danger to Bush.

It appears that Talon News existed to provide a voice in press conferences for political purposes.

ALL of the above are matters of our COUNTRY.

The part about the potential male prostitution is all PERSONAL.
Male prostitution, if true, is not the same as pornography.

Male prostitution is a matter of hypocrisy because of the persecution of gays by the Republican Party.

Referring to the PERSONAL life of this operative is justified as long as the Republican Party continues to persecute gays and holds their Party members up as morally superior to Democrats. Investigating his life is justified because of the political act of planting him in the press conferences and giving him a voice.
