Deda BS: Our Growing Constitutional Crisis (39) RE: BS: Our Growing Constitutional Crisis 06 Dec 04

I'll never give any credence to Robert Novak again, so his career is dead with ME. I'm sure that keeps him awake nights.

I agree with Carol C that the mainstream press is now owned by the same conglomerates that are huge donors to, and seem to pull most of the marionette strings to, the scum currently in the white house. The US at this point is a plutocracy, flirting with Fascism.

It mattered that Eric Severeid or Walter Cronkite or Woodward & Bernstein had legally guaranteed freedoms to do their jobs. Who is doing their jobs now? Is anyone? In order to feel that I'm getting a reasonably straight story these are my choices:
1. Foreign press on line
2. Some bloggers on line
3. BBC news on radio and public TV
4. The radical left press like Pacifica, Democracy Now, and Air America. "Radical Left" only because they don't seem to answer to any corporate interests.

I do want these people to have a guaranteed right to protect their sources. As for Robert Novak, I actually think that he AND his sources ought to be drawn and quartered.

And no, I'm not impartial. I hate the direction that the country is going in. I'd like to secede from the union, except that all my friends and family are here and I live here, too, and I believe there ought to be room for dissidents here.


Love, Deda
