31. Somerby rocks
Edited on Mon Dec-18-06 05:33 PM by Uncle Joe
:yourock: Someone should publish his book.

I don't think any more or less of Couric than I do the other corporate shills, broadcast or cable. They play the good cop and bad cop scenario for the people, sort of like professional wrestling too, but in the end, the corporate bottom line dictates their information. This is one reason, we get commercials masquerading as news.
