What I am saying is that the majority of the "mainstream" media have assumed the mantle
of dumbing down the masses, or at least converting them to the "politically correct" way
of looking at the world.
Whether or not the Iraq war was or is a fraud is another matter entirely, and is a major
opinion matter. Reporters in that theater should not be discussing right or wrong. They
should deal with "just the facts."
Did you hear what Laura Ingraham had to say about Amanpour? BTW, I understand that
Amanpour was subjected to an administrative reprimand by CNN for her comments.
Steven...What you saying is that Media's role right now is to DUMB
DOWN the peons. I also see that so-called journalists like CNN's
Amanpour is trying to redeem herself in the eyes of the public now
that Bush's War with Iraq is coming to light as being a fraud.
Amanpour claims INTIMIDATION???HELLO???? A TRUE journalist -- they
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER ..EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER get
intimidated by ANYONE and ESPECIALLY a MORON in the White House. She
and others are JUST SALESPEOPLE and NOTHING more...Ok..ok...Besides
