1. She's local but...
Edited on Mon Sep-27-04 03:13 PM by Bluzmann57
I'm going to say a lady named Barb Ickes from the Quad City Times. She does mostly local stuff, as she is a Quad- Citian, but she reports and things get done. And she's one of us, at least as far as attitude. She did a story on the deplorable Nazi-like tactics used by the security people when bush was in town in August. I emailed her and complimented her and she actually got back to me and more or less indicated she's a Democrat. She did come right out and say that btheir tactics have no place in America. On Edit- you can read her stuff at www.qctimes.com

5. Jounralist
JON STEWART (read his appearance on O Lie-lly factor, its classic), Dan Rather- the Republican scumbags have falsified enough stuff, he has a right to do it to! And it made Bush look bad hahahaha

But Bill Moyers and Greg Palast are pretty good as well.
