51. What are your reasons for not telling the truth about Bush/media?
Somthing besides grossly inaccurate personal attacks would be nice.

Why cant we go on the TV and truthfully say "Bush pays the media to lie for him" and then give three examples? Would that not be "nuanced enough?" Would that be "too much like Micheal Moore?"

All you ever said was "that's stupid."


Why is telling the blunt, unvarnished truth in a manner that swing voters understand "stupid?"
