Calling WLS, reaming Condi, Powell and corporate media
Edited on Sat Jan-29-05 07:59 PM by Gabi Hayes
David Jennings, one of two sane broadcasters on RW tool outlet WLS/Chicago, is discussing the elections in Iraq, and asked whether the election would have an effect on the violence

I didn't even get to that, but ranted on about how our entire presence there is totally misrepresented, based, when one boils off all the effluvia, to the mushroom cloud...the scare tactic they used as the apothosids of WMDs. I said that nobody would have swallowed the bad bad Saddam/spread Democracy BS as reason to kill 1400 americans, and that it's the fault of Judith Miller, the NYT, the WashPost (who, I reminded him, apologized for their miserably, CRIMINALLY negligent runup coverage)

I've got some more stuff, but I'm being pestered by my guest, so I'll be back with some comments I made about Condi and Colin, as well as the media and the elections of 00 and 04...nothing you haven't heard here, but with which the liberal host even disagreed

1. I didn't hear your call
I've been listening to Guy James. I hope you enjoy Nate Clay on WLS. He's on later tonight. I rarely miss at least an hour or so of his program each Saturday. It was excellent last week, btw.

2. I had it on earlier. They were talking about kids and sex so I turned
it off. I'll turn it back on even though I HATE WLS.

3. same here, to the max
just a moment or two....I told the host that the US corporate media, although those on the ground, as he said, can't get out to see what's really happening, cause they're targets outside the greenzone (his words), could use the myriad sources of journalists like dahr jamail, whose website I spelled out over the air
http://dahrjamailiraq.com/weblog /

I told them, straight from his site, this little tidbit, about oil prices there:

A little further we begin what is often a quest to find some reasonably priced black market petrol. The first man we ask tells us 8,000 Iraqi Dinar (ID) for 20 Liters ($1.06 per gallon). While the prices have dropped from a recent 20,000 ID per 20 liters, they are still unacceptable to Abu Talat, who paid 100 ID for 20 liters prior to the invasion at pumps where maybe one car was in front of him.

He is irked at the 8,000 ID, so we drive past a miles long gas line to find a boy selling for 8,000 again, so we continue on to find another boy selling for 6,500 ID.

Abu Talat asks him some questions then drives off again.

Why didnt you take it for 6,500, I ask perplexed.

He wouldnt swear to me it wasnt watered down, he replied with a smile.



gotta go
