From PDA blogger Michael Short in Detroit:
From the local press...The editor of the Michigan Citizen Newspaper (Bankel Thompson)addressed the meeting next.
I love this quote, "The price of having honest men keep quiet is having dishonest men rule over them!"
He spoke out against the way our news organizations have been co opted (willingly or not) by the administration. This includes both domestic and foreign organizations(like the BBC).
He also says that he doesn't think the Democratic party did enough to avoid or oppose the war in Iraq. He thinks they (we) still aren't doing enough.
