Bush borrows a page from the RONCO playbook
and buys "journalists" to hawk his wares. How long before we see late-night 30 minute infomercials selling Bush policies? We have two journalists caught so far, you can bet there are more of them.

Write your congress-people and senators before you hear this,

"And if you act now we'll throw in 2 No Children Left Behind at no additional cost."

This has to be illegal and maybe why Powell resigned as head of the FCC. He saw just how wrong this is.

1. Excellent point--Powell's resignation was sudden by any definition
So far it's been print journalists. But if broadcast and radio journalists have been doing this over public airwaves, that would implicate the FCC. Subpoena the bastard and let's see what he has to say.

2. Something pushed him
to resign shortly after his father. I really believe he was forced to resign because he wouldn't cover for them anymore. I hope some kind of media fairness legislation starts up over this and we can get answers, after all the money paid to these partisan hacks was ours.

3. "Act now and you could receive the very next Supreme Court nomination"
Just mention you saw this broadcast. No cost, no obligation. Operators are standing by so call now. Call 1-800-BFEESUX. That's 1-800-BFEESUX. Don't delay, 1-800-BFEESUX.
