Ann Coulter admitted it: "We have the media"
The Sean Insannity show was playing at work today, and there was a right-wing vs. right-wing debate between Brent Bozell and Ann Coulter over whether or not John Roberts was a good judicial choice (Coulter is afraid he won't be rightwing enough!) At one point, she reminded Hannity and Bozell "we have the media now"! Is this the first time the right wing has admitted this? Some of them still spew their line about the "liberal media". Well, I guess Ann Coulter just blew their cover!

They just went on with their discussion. I wonder if any of them were thinking "Oops!"

5. I think this needs to be researched...
...the audio pulled and made into a drop-in to be used on every Progressive radio show on the air. I think it needs to be in heavy rotation. It should play everytime some rightard pulls the "liberal media" lie. It should be burned on a chip and put on one of those keyfob player things that usually have fart noises and such on it. I knew one of those traitors would slip and admit the truth, and now that it's happened we should jump aaall over it.

16. The Hannity.com website has downloads
but it requires becoming a "member" and paying $5.95 a month. It would be worth much more than that to get the Coulter quote, but I don't know if any of us want to give money to Insannity's website. I'm sure I'm not the only one that heard this today, though.

10. Actually, they must be losing the media now.... if Ann Coulter is spouting
Think about it. If they really had the media now, she would be denying it up and down. They are grasping at straws. The media is punching back because of the reporters being screwed over by Rove and Libby and that hack Novak going scott free - no offense to Scotts... well maybe McClellen.

11. is this the begining of a change in the basic dialog
is the myth of the liberal-biased media falling apart now?
can we claim now that a conservative-biased media has been covering up for Bush and the corupt elements of corporate America?

Al-Qaeda 'destroyed in Pakistan'
Troops in South Waziristan, Pakistan
Pakistan says its troops have al-Qaeda on the run
Pakistan has destroyed al-Qaeda's ability to operate on its soil, President Pervez Musharraf has said.

He said the network could not have orchestrated deadly bombings in London, Egypt or elsewhere from his country.

"Al-Qaeda does not exist in Pakistan any more," he told reporters in Lahore, after unconfirmed reports Pakistanis were being sought over bombs in Egypt.

Police in Egypt are not linking the missing men to Friday's Sharm al-Sheikh bombings, in which more than 60 died.

QUICK GUIDE

What is al-Qaeda?
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/spl/hi/pop_ups/04/world_...

President Musharraf said al-Qaeda "sanctuaries" in Pakistan had been over-run, and that Pakistani security forces had arrested 700 of the movement's fighters.

22. read "What Liberal Media"
Alterman gives a history of how the right set about to tar the media as liberal, knowing it was not, so as to 1. lie ("the media isn't telling you the truth because it is liberal, we are the truth tellers") and 2. to push the media to the right (so as to avoid being yelled at and called liberal.)

He talks about how it was planned and he heard righties laughing about it.

23. My interpretation.
I regard the CNN amd MSNBC as rightwing.

I don't think Ann Coulter does.

I think she meant that between Fox News, rightwing radio, rightwing columnists like herself, the rightwing is loud enough that it doesn't matter whether CNN and MSNBC are rigthtwing or not.

There is no liberal equivalent to Fox News, as she knows.

24. Okay I have $5. I have a dare.
I want someone to go to NYC and walk to 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

Knock on the door ('cause you know someone will answer) and tell them, "Hey, the right wingers say that they own you."

Come back and tell me just how hard they will laugh at you.

Then I will pay you the $5.

They're just corporate owned and answerable to only one thing: $.

Of course with the exception of those media who are explicitly colluding with a political ideology.

...that should tell us all that the major conservative corporations that own the media have now turned on the NeoCons.

Americans are now turning against the Bush Admin. and they are trying to appeal to us and our wallets. "Tis all. No big fucking conspiracy.

40. And of course large corporations are not RW/capitalist/republican...
Don't you think the interests of corporations are different then the interests of workers?

Don't you think that NBC will never report on any wrongdoing by its owner General Electic?
Well, that's RW bias.

42. "...those media who are explicitly colluding with a political ideology."
"Of course with the exception of those media who are explicitly colluding with a political ideology."


Which is practically all of the mainstream media, if only for not calling the government on the lies that got us into this war.

An exception to that may be *a few* hosts who dared to be somewhat critical, most of who are gone now.
And then still - for instance Dan Rather was not CBS, he was merely *one* host at CBS.
Moreover, it is typically not the hosts or journalists who get to decide what is reported and what is not reported, but rather the editor, who in turn is accountable to the owner.

35. One could pay $5.95 to Hannity at his website, but I don't
want to, because I don't want to be put on rightwing mailing lists.

I get enough junk mail.

28. She has lied many times before, and guess what?.....
....She's lying now.

That's because even that NeoCon shill has seen the sea-change in how the media is now reporting REAL stories about REAL issues.
