Would someone, anyone tell me
why all MSM stations have dropped all news re Lebanon and are giving us 24/7 coverage of a plot and not a disaster. MSM combined are worse that a state run TV station.

What else is going on that they don't want people to see.

1. Daily show
In the middle of one of the fake remotes from DC, the comic (Bakkendahl?) stopped. His eyes glazed over as he looked off to the side and said, "Ooooh, they just rolled something shiny onto the White House lawn." Pretty much said it all.

2. That seems to be what they've all been doing for quite some time.
Think back to the missing girl in Aruba, the teorrist threat in Fl, the terrorist threats in NY, an airplane that hasn't dropped it's landing gear.....

The list goes on, and on, and on. It seems like they've been using Iraq as a backup story when nothing else is happening, but a new story trumps EVERYTHING ELSE!

3. Your last sentence answers your question.
"They don't want people to see" anything other than what they're looping endlessly. Typical corpmedia.

I'm trying to find news on Afghanistan, Iraq, and Bush's latest proposed terror bill, but that stuff is hard to find today.

5. I can't take much more of this.

I'm watching LBC America, Lebanese TV because even though I don't understand the language I can see what's going on.

4. Luckily, my TV is broken. But I borrowed my friend's truck today,
and the radio was on the station that carries Rush Limpballs. Rush was on vacation again (probably back in the Carribean) and some asshole named Roger something was on and tho I could barely stand it, I had to keep listening. What a crock of shit!!! He ranted about "Hezbollah High", a high school in Dearborn, Michigan, where the two arab kids that were picked up went to school. It was very racist, sick sick people.
