    There aren't that many kids with brain tumors that need insurance. And there aren't that many wars going on right now. And the there is barely a deficit.  and there is peace in the middle east. That's bullshit.

    In your head - close your eyes - I want you to imagine the person in this country who watched that segment and DIDN'T think, "Why the fuck are they talking about this?"  Think about that person.  How are we going to reach that person?  Taht is who we need to reach.

    •  Yeah but look at (none)
      Alumbrados'  clip above.  The chimp story is the most popular story at CNN.com.  Ol' Wolfie doesn't bring us stories that we don't want to see.  Our news is the most democratic news that has ever existed.  If 'Murica wants to see chimp attacks, then that's what they get, even if the deficit is climing as we speak; poor families are having bankruptcy ripped out from under them as an option, even as they have to pay astronomical medical costs in the first place; democracy is being short-circuited as the filibuster's days are numbered; children continue to die horribly in the Dafur region; etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.....
