The MSM has already started its campaign against health care reform.....
.... I'm listening to an all-news Detroit radio station, a CBS affiliate, which just framed a story on Obama, Daschle and health care reform as: "Despite the economic turmoil and job losses, president-elect Barack Obama STILL (the morning mouth on the radio put a heavy emphasis on that word) plans to press ahead with health care changes that could cost BILLIONS (more emphasis by the morning mouth) of dollars.

Gangsters for capitalism. All of them.

6. Can't stop the wars
They're fighting to defend our rights to have 50 million people without health care shitty schools, crumbling roads and bridges, tax cuts for the wealthy, no bid contracts in the death dealing and clean up industires etc. etc. etc.

3. They can be against it all they want but something has to change in healthcare insurance
I'd like to know who buys ads from them, who owns them outright and/or their affiliations with UHC, Anthem/BCBS, Aetna, Humana etc.

8. "News" Radio is now NO SUCH THING.
I will never forget the first toothpaste ad I heard, masquerading as a "journalstic story".

That was more than 10 years ago.

The entire Corporate M$M is a laughingstock and a bad joke. Believe NOTHING they say without confirmation from a trustworthy source that employs fact-checkers, not Bushigandists and moles and CIA Psyops boys masqerading as low-level employees (and sometimes high-level ones), as it is at the State-Controlled Amerikan M$M.

10. M$M campaign against unions and healthcare has been going on
for at least 60 years. Sometimes it just gets a little louder.
Bill Kristol, then Newtie's chief of staff, said that if Democrats get universal health care enacted the republicans won't be able to elect a dogcatcher.
