At this post, the author notices that the press is acting funny, making Kerry look bad and Bush look good… My comment,
“Hey, I think we figured out a few years ago that the corporate media was moving solidly into support of the Right’s agenda. They’re there now. Why do we all act surprised each and every time we see more evidence of it?
How long does something have to be in front of our faces before we see what is going on? This is NOT the America we grew up in.
Think about Russia, where the opposition to Putin is pretty much kept off the TV, period. Or Italy where the leader OWNS much of the media. And think about countries where the opposition is harassed by the full power of the government, jailed, etc. I am becoming more convinced that is where we will be if Bush is in office next year.”
Watch your backs.
