152. You know, it's funny .....
some of our friends on DU express frustration at the major media sources for not reporting the news accurately .... or hiding the truth from the masses .... and this does happen, to an extent .... but more frequently, we over-estimate the capabilities of those men and women in the media .... they are not necessarily "gifted" ..... look at that horse's ass Sean Hannity: his world view is so rigid, that if he were able to absorb even a small amount of truth, he would crack. I'm not joking when I say that.

Those who are more likely to be able to recognize the truth .... and hence convey it .... are on occassion a guest on one of the commercial shows ..... but far more likely to have delivered the word in a book. I've mentioned Kevin Phillips .... a "must read" who really isn't going to fit the format of a Fox News show -- thank God.

The information you, I, and our friends needs is out there. If it's found on the pages of Dean's latest book once, but denied a thousand times a week on Fox News .... it's still just as true.

What amazes me is the ability of some of our friends to access good information from the internet so darned fast. Obviously, I'm dating myself as closer to the paleolithic era than to the high-tech computer age!
