34. great post. Let's also not forget that
along with the overt 1.6 billion dollars that the maladministration has spent on propagandizing U.S. citizens between 2003 and 2005 (see Washinton Post article from Feb 14 2006 on prepackaged news) there is corporate control of nearly all media. This is exacerbated by left wing gatekeepers (Goodman, Rothchild, Cockburn, Chomsky to name a few) who gratuitously offer to debunk things such as the 9-11 truth movement. While I wonder about the motives of such people, I think it basically all comes down to $ spent on maintaining the status quo.

Just like the discussion on "Now" this week about insurance companies being willing to spend millions to prevent a few homeowners challenging their inadequate payments for "full replacement value" insurance on homes that burned in California fires several years ago, the PTB will do ANYTHING to maintain their power. This is predatory capitalism at work.
