OH No People aren't lied to.....CNN on Air America
I just got home from dropping mini off at school, was listening to Air America on the way home, CNN News ....

1. Announced the new nominee for Homeland Security - said -- the liberals oppose , but had an actual spokesman on from the Heritage Foundation talking about why this is a good nomination.

2. Had a spokeswomen on from the CATO Institute talking about why privatizing SS would be a good idea.

CNN News just had 2 people on from far right think tanks spew units with no opposition voice - NONE. I mean, a libertarian and the Heritage Foundation are now our spokespeople for public policy?????

It is the Media, it is all about the media. Whoever is our national chair had better realize this and have a plan.

1. I think CNN is part of the so-called mandate. One mind. No opposition.
This my friends is what they call the death of democracy. Democracy is ALL ABOUT discourse. America has very little and is tolerating less by the moment.

3. The Internet is the only place left to get the truth
I have to assume it's on BushCo's hit list.

2. I haven't been listening
to Air America much - but maybe they should be using another news source...

4. Reminds me of a line from the "Blues Brothers:"
"Oh, we play both kinds of music, country AND western!"

6. This is a typical tactic of the MSM...
Interview "serious" commentators from some right-wing nut tank without any counter balancing argument. The ignorant people then get one idea in their head...
