Ok the revolution is extending to the media
First Democracy Now and now Al Jazeera on the Rachel Maddow show....

And the AJ feed has even made it to... FNC... yes, we are seeing a revolution that perhaps is also reaching here.

How many of you knew of AJ or Democracy Now? How many of the average Murican who watches the RMS and does not watch or read DU do you think are going ... what is AJ, what is Democracy Now?

5. Yes, and don't get me started on FNC, yes I have monitored them too
nothing funnier than seeing the AJ feed on FNC. Of course Saturday they were trying this thing called analysis.

16. What about RT?
Russia Today, I think it's called. I do watch a lot of Max Keiser Report, which is the most intelligent while being amusing report of financial scandal and bankster updates.

It's out there.... IF you have the internets.

Well, A Buncha Crap -- ABC world news, was all over the story warning us about how oil prices are going up, up, and away because the Egyptians were standing up for their rights.

Thank gawds we still have some lame ass reporting on the boobie, eh? People just might get the right ideas, otherwise.

9. And who's to blame?
The news, or the Egyptian people? Or just the usual oil criminals?

10. Speculators, but they are still going up
fact is they always go up on the slightest disturbance of the force.

11. So
It's ok by you that the people demanding their freedom cause oil futures to rise on speculation?

I ask because any fool knows about the rise always waiting, but does anyone but me give a shit?

12. Unconnected... speculators will rise
prices whether it is a revolt in Egypt, or a quake in Iran... any disturbance of the force... will do that.

And truth be told most Americans don't give a shit.

18. There will be no revolution
Our leaders are way too slick. Hell, they stole our votes and we think it's just dandy.

We even go around blaming ourselves for republican rule.

The only revolution will see is the last one around the pole just before we blow ourselves to smithereens.

15. We support and watch DN, and I catch AJ through the internet
I can't think of a more balanced to what is going on in the world than Al Jazeera.

Both these organizations have gotten the cold shoulder from the Murican media... downright despicable treatment by the New York Times.

In an age where we need revolution, I'm glad Maddow is bringing them to light.
