  •  Backbone, Shit (none)

    Major media don't think about backbone, or lack thereof.  They think about money.

    Peter Jennings, Dan Rather, his replacement Brian "Douchebag" Williams, Paula Zahn, Weasel Blitzer -- d'ya think they could make those huge incomes, and get those great clothes, actually working?  I don't think so.

    Major media will have to be dragged kicking and screaming.  Fox is an owned and operated subsidiary of Bushco, and the rest of the major media are licensees.

    Friends, please, years ago there was competition, some degree of independence, some brave souls.

    Today, little, almost, none, a very, very lonely few.

    We cannot rely on major media.  They are all favorable to, or in fear of, Amerikills(TM) and Bushco.
