  •  Why isn't (none)
    the mainstream media up in arms over this??? I'm appalled. Angry. Frustrated. Livid. Most Americans still get their news from ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CNN. Are these guys giving the attention to this it deserves? What the fuck is going on????? (I personally don't bother with the 'big guys' anymore. I prefer to read the truth from reliable online sources, like Kos, Media Matters, etc.)

    They knew they'd lose the election if this came out.

    Can't wait to hear Condi lie her way out of this one.

    Can't wait to hear how chimpy tries to explain this blatant cover-up.

    •  Please (none)
      don't tell me you just asked whether FOX is giving this the attention it deserves. I only have so much capacity for laughing and crying at the same time.

      Silent consent or active dissent, the choice is OURS.

      •  Oh, I had no doubt. (none)
        Just mentioning the news outlets that most people watch. Be it news or faux news.

        If FOX mentioned it......then that would have been proof that hell had indeed frozen over.

        •  Get out your mittens!! (none)
          Fox news did indeed report it, and discussed it yesterday morning on Fox & Friends.  Their conclusion?  It wouldn't have mattered anyway, because no one would have known to look for boxcutters.  I wish that I could say I was kidding, but I'm not.  That was said by Perky Blonde Anchor (I can never watch long enough to actually learn their names).

          I can't believe that the hypno-Roves actually bought this tripe!  Even Perky Blonde (I'll call her Eva for now) looked like she was swallowing her own bile as she said this.  Then, somehow, from this, they segued into some gay joke about "If you fix one pipe, does that make you a plumber?".  This is the desired network of the God-fearing, America loving right?  Ignoring gross negligence on a massive scale on one hand, and then suddenly they're yucking it up like shock jocks.  

          The biggest difference between Fox and the so-called liberal press, is that the liberal press are professional, whereas Fox is staffed with a bunch of immature toadies fully lacking  any integrity to themselves, or to their country.

          •  Except the hijackers had a GUN (none)
            One of them did, at least, on flight 11.

            Another FAA tidbit the right wing corporate media refuses to report.

            •  He was just (none)
              exercising his Second Amendment rights.  What are you, some commie gun-control wacko?

              Let me state emphatically that we in the Bush administration do NOT condone torture. We sidle up to it, wink at it, and climb into bed with it.

          •  That's rich (none)
            Someone should do a study on selective memory with regard to the boxcutters the hijackers used.  

            Forget the hell out of 'em when you want to build a missile defense shield or invade a country that might have exotic weapons, remember 'em again when proof shows up that you ignored multiple specific threats in your own country.  

            "Hey, the warnings didn't mention box cutters! They just said Bin Laden was determined to attack.  Soon.  In the US.  With airplanes.  I mean, how were we to do anything with such incomplete intelli--What's that?  Ahmed Chalabi's cousin gave us a photo of some 'suspicious' trucks near an Iraqi bunker?  PREPARE TO INVADE!!!"

            Fuck.

            Let me state emphatically that we in the Bush administration do NOT condone torture. We sidle up to it, wink at it, and climb into bed with it.

      CBS was the only one who had any info on this on their main page.

      Bastards.

      •  yesterday (none)
        It was there yesterday afternoon (below the Charles-Camilla stories, of course).  And the media really focused on N Korea for most of the day, as their seemingly lone "serious story of the day."  We've just got to keep up the pressure to restore the story to the headlines.
    •  they won't even try (none)
      to explain the cover-up. They don't give a (exponent deleted) about explaining anything to the American people. They know they won't be held accountable and that half the country cares more about abortions and gays not being allowed to get married then they do about this kinda (exponent deleted). Remember guy, Bush and Co. lied and got us into a war, that is big deals, and yet still the (exponent deleted) republicans didn't give a (exponent deleted). We could find out that Bush and Co. finianced the entire 9/11 tragedy and still the republicans would only give a (exponent deleted) that Jim and George next door wanted to get married.
      •  don't hold back! (none)
        (exponent deleted)

        We prurient math types wanna know!  was it squared?  cubed?  negative?  some kinky irrational (or transcendental)?  some racy imaginary number belonging entirely to the realm of fantasy?
