    The Dixie Chicks were against the war so that means that everyone should have known Bush was lying? Do you remember what happened to them because they were against the war? They still don't get played on many stations because of it.

    My point is that the media rarely gave the anti-war side time. I was on the roof of the CNN tower in L.A. when there was a protest against CNN and their war coverage by about 10,000 people. CNN did not report on it and the local news that did downplayed the number by half and focused on the few people who were arrested at the end more than the protest itself.

    I came to dKos just before the runnup began and was well informed because of that. Lies were refuted in real time here and that made me better informed than the vast majority of this country. People that did not seek out opposing views did not get them. He explicitly admits that he was one of those people.

    Most of the people taking a hard line against us are firmly convinced that they are the last defenders of civilization... The last stronghold of mother, God, home and apple pie and they're full of shit! David Crosby, Journey Thru the Past.
