Headlines in the News

by Anonymoses

     Millions of people are suffering in South Asia and our government is sitting on its hands. Kerry and Edwards should demand massive humanitarian aid, and they should do it now. America has the chance to become a Humanitarian Superpower, but Bush is a mere War President. Peace and well-being are apparently above their pay-grade or abilities. Perhaps even more egregious is the relative black-out of this crisis, and the escalating crises in Iraq, by the commercial media. In a related item, there is a column of why journalists help governments lie.
     In Iraq, things are spiralling even further out of control, so much so that one BBC commentator called it a "Civil War". But since this doesn't bode well for Mister Bush, the Big Media are looking elsewhere. At Martha, for instance. For her part, she is being a fearless bodhisattva.
     On the US Election front, Florida is, once again, proving to be as opprobrious as ever. Same old shenanigans are being pulled from the ass of the Bush family, and foisted upon Black Floridian voters. Greg Palast and Jesse Jackson are soldiering on in their attempt to ensure clean elections. Time will tell...
     Sir Elton John is the latest to decry the "No nay-sayer goes unpunished" tactics of BushWorld.
     FOX News is again in the news, as "Outfoxed" hits #1 on, and they get sued for using "Fair and Balanced"...which they clearly are anything but.
     The Drug/Media cartel are once again selling snake oil to a gullible public, even though their cures are often worse than the disease. With the Media so heavily invested in Drugs, how could they be so foolish as to critique their paymasters? Even if it might mean preventing the unnecessary death of innocents. Speaking of which...the NY Times apologizes for their "groupthink" which helped the Bush Administration hurl so many Americans to their unnecessary deaths. As Schopenhauer warned: "Dull minds think alike."
