THEY DID IT AGAIN! BUSHCO PRE-EMPTS BLANCO!
Those mother fuckers! Chimpy struts out to give his same canned speech just as Blanco takes the stand to skewer him. All media cuts away.

FUCKERS!

4. Relax, we are the only ones watching!
The people who say Bush is doing an ok job or that think it was the local officails fault don't watch CNN! Especially during the day. It is just the news junkies like us, so who cares what they show. Think about it. We have to stop giving them so much of our energy. Starve the beast.

10. Blanco Pre-Empted on CNN, MSNBC By * Speech On Terror...
and I don't know about Fox - I'm assuming * is talking there as well - I don't watch Fox. I hope the MSM goes back and plays Blanco's whole opening statement over again in its entirety.

11. We will see how fast they go back to Blanco
after * finishes his canned speech. Or will they discuss what * has just said?

12. On the other hand....
if they are blocking out coverage of her testimony could it be because they fear she will do well and come off much more credibly than Brown? If they thought she'd do lousy I would think they couldn't wait for her testimony so that her making a fool of herself could help make them look good, or at least not as bad. Hmmmmm...

30. I know. But don't they usually repeat
them a few times? I am sure a lot of people are curious as to what she has to say.

Oh come on....
How did you not see that coming?

Are you actually surprised that every network carrying Blanco suddenly cut to shrub making the same canned terra speech?

13. The First Responder Unions usually support the GOP
But - two things are "switching" the First Responders in California.


    * Gubernator Bobbengrabber is screwing with their pensions.

    * The First Responders returning from Katrina have got loads of "FEMA War Stories." ---and firefighters have credibility.


The GOP will pay!!!

14. HOLY SHIT! MSNBC asking "Blanco is testifying...is this a diversion?"
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 10:04 AM by Atman
"Bush's strength is controlling the message. Did he make this announcement just as Blanco began testifying in order to shift the focus back to what's worked for him in the past, the war on terror?"

Of course, they didn't go back to Blanco, though.

A re-run of a Bolton speech is on CSpan3.

Finance committee on CSPAN.

WHORES on all the media outlets.

OOPS...MSNBC teling us Blanco really didn't say much...now they're running a taped hilight...but none of the actual testimony.

17. Some new guy, I think...I don't watch MSNBC enough to know 'em
If you had it on mute, he was the one on the left of the split screen, talking to a "homeland security" expert or something. It was pretty amazing. Didn't settle much, but the fact that they were even discussing it was a shocker!

21. Just as I and others have been
saying..we have to PROTEST THE FASCIST CORPORATE MEDIA! IF we want the chimp outta OUR FACE!

And we have to have a serious MASS MEDIA PROTEST..hey, we can TRY to organize it without A.N.S.W.E.R.

We can make signs to reflect what they do..

REAL NEWS GETS PRE-EMPTED AGAIN BY CHIMPY CATUPULTING THE PROPOGANDA!"

Even if they didn't report on it..BBC or somebody would ..and they would know they are on notice.

It's a dream of mine. Something's GOT to be DONE.

26. That's funny.. I just happen to have a site called
Takebackthemedia.com and I'd LOVE to help organize a march against the media (Answerless of course)..

A March on FOX would always be effective, CNN is a good target in LA..

Let's PARTY :)

27. I called for this on Saturday, and it got a lot of positive feedback
But...will we act?

We have a lot of people here that have the talents and resources to organize this. NYC is pretty central for a lot of people, too.

39. How about cnn in Atlanta and
D.C.? fauxsux is a known fascist tool..but we could have signs with fauxsux on them too in front of cnn.

cnn and msnbc need to get called on a Mass Protest Scale ..on their suppression of real news.

And, cnn, in LA would be Perfect..co-ordinated with Atlanta and D.C.

I will be checking your website in the future..Thank You for your Activism, symbolman!

28. Nope. They talked over her on split-screen
Now Dana Smashed is re-running Bush's canned speech and "analyzing" it for us. Jesus. Can't we just look into the archives and see what you said last week? It's all the same.

35. Blanco, Nagin, and, to a lesser degree, Brown are the scapegoats...
They will broadcast the skewering of Blanco, but not her opening defense...
