You are herecontent / News Hour With Jim Lehrer on Cindy Sheehan
By davidswanson - Posted on 17 August 2005
The Interviewer gave the right wing point of view far more time than the left. And he is just as cold and callous an asshole as Bush is. The issues are: This country has a liar for a president that is killing our young men needlessly. He has mismanaged the war on terror and is trying to escape facing that. Cindy Sheehan is holding him accountable. The only way the right wing, (which is by tge way, condescending to women because of course CINDY couldn't be powerful by herself, she is begin "USED",) is trying to counter it all with more screaming diversion tactics. I do admit it is a quandry, now that we have created a terrorist haven, whether to ( how to) leave or not. But I don't think we'll win if we stay, this administration is too incompetent. We are in a bad way folks.
Public television and radio is being forced to the radical right.
Ken Tomlinson is one of the head honchos at pubic televison, He is a radical right wing nut. He attacked the Bill Moyers program Now and claims public televison represents only "liberal politics" etc. The person appointed to take his place is a long time republican PAC organizer, fund raiser person. They are taking over or putting heavy pressure on public televison and radio as well. They are also allowing consolidation of corporate control of the media
Remember Michael Powell (Colin's son)? As head of the FCA federal communications commission he attempted to allow the consolidation of ownership of radio and tv stations. It was partially successful, but a grass roots movement prevented a more radical consolidation.The attack on the media as with the attack on the enviornment social programs, education etc is an ongoing battle.
Info on the media is on Amy Goodmans DemocracyNow.Org this site may have all the old shows as audio tapes. Pacifica radio has stations in many states and carries much good alternative media. It can be accessed on the web. Go to DemocracyNow.Org for links. thanks.
There is a radical right wing take over of every aspect of our govt and our lives. They are (or are attempting to ) influence and control all branches of our govt ie. state and federal legislatures, executive judicial. The goal is a one party system and with redistricting, illegal election tactics, voter fraud. etc they have made substantial gains. they have also replaced members of the upper ranks of our military, and civilian intelligence, (goggle Ray McGovern) as well controlling media, attacking "progressive faculty at our schools and universities.
You name the area of our lives. Its been going on for a long time.
The good news is that many people are just now getting it. Going to the vigil. Its time for a change Its been a long time coming.
When the people lead the leaders follow. Citizen Jacques.
If you really want to get sick, take a look at the Wednesday NY Times. You'll see Meese on the front page with a huge photo and on page 16, there's almost a full page on conservative judge issues and photos and a dinky article on the Democrats opposing Roberts. The Times has been totally corrupted.
