  •  ok i had a dumb thought (8+ / 0-)
    so i was thinking hmm. i would like to see from the press less words, more action. Ha ha ha!

    but really I'd like to see some hardcore action from the press. They need to start reporting EVERYTHING. The stories they're holding on to now because they are scared of influencing the midterm elections need to be published tomorrow. By Tuesday at the latest.

    They need to revisit all the stories they've buried and squashed. They need to start running the list of dead in the Iraqi war on like page 1 or 2 of every paper every day until the war is over. They need to start front paging what we're doing over there.

    They need to chew His Excellency up over Iran. They need to chew His Excellency and the Republicans in Congress up over their stupid-ass proposed constitutional emendments.

    So yes I should like action in the form of words. But now matter how I phrase it, they need to shit or get off the pot. They need to either start doing their jobs or just admit they're entertainers and nothing else.

      Admit they have been bought by the coporate ad guys.  Tell the world that they don't give the news that is the truth but that they give the "truthiness" according to their owners.  They are bought and paid for people without a thought in theri heads.  They have accepted being slaves to their "owners" now they whine like little puppy dogs when it effects them.  Tell it to their owners don't bother me with your very bad self.

        news shows or reports that are bought and paid for should document that.

        "This news story was paid for by blah company"
