"The situation is completely un-American"

    Excerpt from an article called What's Wrong With This Picture?
    by Mark Crispin Miller

    "...the news divisions of the media cartel appear to work against the public interest--and for their parent companies, their advertisers and the Bush Administration. The situation is completely un-American. It is the purpose of the press to help us run the state, and not the other way around. As citizens of a democracy, we have the right and obligation to be well aware of what is happening, both in "the homeland" and the wider world. Without such knowledge we cannot be both secure and free. We therefore must take steps to liberate the media from oligopoly, so as to make the government our own."

    we needed some guy to write an article to tell us this? all the press is for is to make money... whatever is a popular idea is what's gonna get written about. obviously that's not always the case, but that's the majority of what gets published...

    As an American living abroad, I'd have to say I am horrified by the direction the country has gone in since 9/11. I t was bad before, now its intolerable

    The movie ran through me
    The glamour subdue me
    The tabloid untie me
    I'm empty please fill me
    Mister anchor assure me
    That Baghdad is burning
    Your voice it is so soothing
    That cunning mantra of killing
    I need you my witness
    To dress this up so bloodless
    To numb me and purge me now
    Of thoughts of blaming you
    Yes the car is our wheelchair
    My witness your coughing
    Oily silence mocks the legless
    Ones who travel now in coffins
    On the corner
    The jury's sleepless
    We found your weakness
    And it's right outside our door
    Now testify

    Rupert Murdoch is next in line to own this site. I hear he has plans to turn the "benches" into a fully interactive, right-wing shopping network and "channel zero" into channel zero 1, 2, 3, Espanol and request live.
