    it's not efen the tenth time.

    They've been doing this for years.  They get their talking points off the fax and insert it word for word into their "news broadcast".

    Whether it's caused by corruption or laziness, there is no more news on the news anymore.  At least not on a national level.

    •  I believe we're getting the factory animal treatmt (0+ / 0-)

      Advertisers & think tanks continually want to tweat their message so the general public will be steered in the way those on the top want it. There's all sorts of big time research about how to get the most meat or milk from the factory animals with the least expense. It's the same kind of tweaking.

      I mostly notice it for women's rights. The PTB have decided that abortion and birth control hurts the bottom line, so there's increasing pressure and finese about the "anti" arguments.

      I'm sure there's all sorts of other examples. OWS is getting the treatment because it challenges the status quo.

      Giving birth (giving life) should be a gift not an obligation or women and poor people are 2nd class by definition
