119. ZW -- You're right and wrong.
I see no way the congress would impeach anyone in this administration, they put party power too far above serving country's best interest.

On that point, you're right.

But you are wrong, in that DSM if used properly in our everyday conversations with people we turn the heads of the masses, one thought at a time, one person at a time beginning to see the truth. The media is not going to save our country. One only needs to review the 2004 election coverage to understand that, or see the focus on the Michael Jackson trial, or (you name the distraction) story.

The DSM gives clear evidence that this administration was as Will Pitt said, professing the desire for peaceful solutions in public while behind doors they were sharpening their knives for the attack.

This is the point we can make with each person we encounter in our daily affairs, that the GOP is just a bunch of liars, more than willing to weaken our military and send people to their deaths rather than seeking a better solution.

And these are the kinds of drips that add up. Micro-sized drips, not coming from the media, but one person to another. And with enough of us spreading the micro-drops around, that can eventually turn the tide, regardless of the media. With any luck, the masses may start to see the media's complicity in all of this mess. But that may be just wishful thinking on my part ;-)
