  •  My e-mail to Mr. Jim Brady, just now (4.00)
    Dear Mr. Brady:

    I read and copied to keep all 23 pages of the Live Online discussion today about bloggers and the problem concerning Ms. Howell and her Abramoff comments.

    Thank you so much.  I feel that you have listened to us and have responded with a wonderful panel choice and great questions.  The panelists did a splendid job of saying things that have burdened my heart and mind these last few days.

    I am a 61 year old grandma who retired from teaching, recently.  I have been an informed voter all my life.  I have been truly heart sick at what I have seen presented constantly in newspapers, radios, and TV shows as Republican, right-wing talking points trashing the 50+ million Democratic voters and telling outright, easily provable lies.  

    We have no checks and balances left.  The free press was our last resort.  It has abandonned us.
    Blogging sites such as firedoglake and Daily Kos keep me in tune with truth.  

    I was not sure from your own responses if you really understand how important it is for news stories to tell the truth.  I feel perhaps you are constrained.  But you did a good job, today, and I am very grateful.  I am still upset with Ms. Howell's responses and the Hugh Hewitt conversation which made it sound like all bloggers are rabid.  

    Thank you again for allowing me to e-mail you.
