Thought I was just reading for amusement, as I do appreciate the comments and links to sites all over the grid. And then the hilarious scare tactic to send off some link to the moonie washington times? Comon, should someone cower to such a threat? If you are in cahoots with them, please ask them to comment on how quickly secret service was dispatched to collect the publications in DC that morning. The rest of that story does however go on, in case someone wants to read whole article about the cover-ed up homo prostitution sex-ring of the Reagan/Bush White House (page1 page2).
Questioning the validity of a source is healthy and wise. All too often red/blue/green/pink soapboxers only regurgitate points of one slant. Did anyone refer to Faux news as a reliable source?
I went through the 9 page forum about “What’s going right in Iraq”, which started by quoting an article from nationalreview.com, which actually just promotes an OpEd from some no-name Brent Walker for the website that describes itself as the “Multi-National Force - Iraq official web site” mnf-iraq.com. Hmmm. Alternative media is definately required to counter such rosy bed of fubar. How about “Iraq for Sale” (its an online movie, you won’t see on BBC/CNN/etc… yet.)
I don’t think I saw these links on previous pages of this forum, so for the benefit of those looking for non-White House/KarlRove-approved news:
Every now and then a fresh Daniel Elsberg blows a lie-stopping whistle. When we catch an understanding of some hidden realities that mainstream media balks at covering, we just have to be willing to do what we can promote truth into enough minds of reasonable people to force the media to cover the truth… instead of waiting for heavy-dollar propaganda to tell us “WWIII came to our door to kill our liberty”.
Citizens of conscience… seek truth, and don’t cower to party-line media mouthpieces.
