"The situation is completely un-American"

Recommended Posts

Guest Ted Wakowski

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.
