I think almost all reporters and many politicians read DU....
But they won't admit it for fear of being called extreme or a conspiracy nut, or worse. :) I think they read it for the honest, raw, and thought-provoking take on the news of the day and to see if they might be mentioned? A day without DU is like a day without sunshine. :) What is your comment?

9. they peek in - but the thought of Brian Williams popping in
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 05:50 PM by FLDem5
to see what I have to say tickled me.

That said, there are many thoughtful and intelligent posters here who merit attention from the spinners and talking heads out there.

I wasn't making fun of your thought, but of my often simplistic posts- that's all.

The freepwads are not helping them.

26. Sad but true.
These people should be our base. But we are failing more and more to resonate with them.

28. You are so right. All the research is laid out right here for them. They
could stay lazy and still come off looking like real investigative reporters. Maybe it's easier for them to just sit back and collect checks from the WH as they use official press releases to "report" "news."

21. Of course they do
We are at ground zero of the news pulse and they know it.

We write inside the vortex and they write outside it. We share
our mutual bond with the fire of the vortex.

And in 10000 futures there will never be the present.
And in 10000 pasts will never be the present.
Would that love and compassion filled the
void inside this missing present.

Maybe not all, but many.

32. I Actually Think We're The Biggest Blog Going....
From time to time, you hear us mentioned. How many others get mentioned??

Oh I know MSM has their "blog" thing to check in on what bloggers are saying, but they AVOID us. That's done on purpose I'm sure.

I know I've personally had feed back from some high level Dems, so why wouldn't the "corrupt ones" check us out??

We are the MOVEMENT you know!!!!
