How can they be so wrong?

Easy peasy! As long as you’re willing to be wrong for powerful special interests, you’ll never have to worry about having a job. And we have drugs if you can’t sleep at night.

Don’t believe it? Ten years ago, Phil Donahue was fired from MSNBC for speaking out against the war in Iraq. The owners of MSNBC — including General Electric — went on to make piles of money on the war. According to Donahue, he was told that he had to have two conservatives on the show for every liberal.

Television news celebrities are in the business of sales, not journalism. They peddle the ideology of the corporate state. And too many of us are buying.

Even PBS put tremendous pressure on Bill Moyers to toe the line.

    Person in the news yesterday: goin to let himself die in hospice. Joined up two days after 9/11 to go to Afghanistan to get rid of Al Qaeda. Was sent to Iraq????????????? instead. There two days, paralyzed by a bullet. And at the age of 33, he wants no more treatment. Another notch in Bush’s gun. Along with the 600,000 Irais killed off for nothing.
    Plus the incredible debt that we haven’t started paying down. Bush took the harvard endowment fund years ago, put it in his oil wells, went bust. He is just working on a larger scale.
    At least we have reason not to have the death penalty. It sounds as those Bush with his OCD (remember when in office, he wouldn’t shake hands? Is in his own private life of hell.

    People say there’s no redistribution in the US. Of course there is: the wealthy give to their kids. Bush is a welfare queen. Actually, he’s worse: he sucks value out of society more than any welfare queen could.
