I never really wanted an ipod. Well, I wanted one in the sense that I want any cool gadget, I had no reason but it looked like fun to have. So I didn’t buy one and put the idea aside.
I think I can make a good arguement that supressing criticism of our government helps the enemy more. It goes something like this…
Imagine yourself for a moment as a resident of Iraq. The very sort of person whose heart and mind our President says he is trying to reach by providing democracy to the region.
Bill O’Reilly has not been fired from fox? Lack of standards I guess…
Bill unfairly edits an interview with Joe Biden and gets caught at it. Has he apologized?
Perpetuating a Myth
I went to the US Census bureau and looked up the trade figures with France and I have to agree with the statement that the effectiveness of Bill’s boycott is a myth. http://www.ifilm.com/ifilmdetail/2664114 Some clever person made a fake website for the non-existant paris Business Review: http://www.parisbusinessreview.com/
Hello and welcome.
My motivation for starting a blog comes from my extreme frustration with the press. But more important is something I observe in the public, which is a common inability among consumers of news programs to be able to separate the crap from the gold.
What I mean is, if a source of information shows itself to be unreliable or tainted, why is it not cast aside by the public? For an easy example turn on your radio and listen to Rush. It is agony for an informed person to listen to his show. Why do the people who know he’s not a reliable source of information tune into his show? Why do radio networks continue to air a show that pretends to be providing information to it’s audience, when it’s shown time and time again that this show intentionally misleads it’s audience?
I want the fairness doctrine back.
