the Media Puzzle
by Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com
American progressives finally are taking seriously
the threat posed by the U.S.
news media's swing to the right, which has
transformed the U.S. democratic process
into a mess of disinformation, fear and irrationality.
Many of the depredations of the last four-plus
years can only be understood by factoring in
the Right's powerful propaganda apparatus
and the mainstream media's complicity.
Still, there remains widespread confusion on the
Left about what can be done and how
to get the most value from investments of money
Here are some suggestions:

Subject: Bush and 9-11
With great respect (and gratitude) for all that you
do, may I ask if you've seen
theology professor David Ray Griffin speaking about September
11 and the lies we're being told?
When you write "to deliver justice to the SOBs who felled
the towers in New York,"
I want you to "feel like the black lady at the
Thomas Jefferson family reunion" again.
I want you to consider the possibility that people
closer to home did the dirty deed.
You assume I have
rejected that idea. I haven't.
The problem is we can't sell a theory to
people who reject facts.
They look at the economy and say, "Bush
has done a great job."
They look at
the war and say, "Bush has done a great job."
They look at
our ruined reputation and say, "Bush has done
a great job."
Just think: Who benefitted more than George W.
I understand all that, but it's not me we
need to convince.
There's so much to be skeptical about, including all
these: Terrorist IDs were found intact
at ground zero and in Pennsylvania (what are the
odds of that really happening?); so-called
evidence was found in rental cars (more plants?);
half of the accused high-jacking terrorists
are proven to be still alive (yep, it's true).
All this is before you hear what David Ray Griffin has
It's mesmerizing. One of the C-SPANs aired it twice.
Please have a look, OK?
Georgene, our problem is the jury refuses to let
the evidence change their mind.
The more he steals,
the more he kills, the more they love him, and his failures make them
hate Bill Clinton even more today than yesterday. There's
a whole new tsunami of hate-filled
"Clinton was a bad president" articles, books and
cable specials coming. They love Bush so much,
they're even willing to trash the memory of Saint
Reagan in side-by-side comparisons.
We're fighting a battle where logic is no help.

Limbaugh had hoped to keep

but he lost

The Florida Supreme Court declined to hear the case.
Because the vulgar Pigboy is white, Republican

If he was black and poor he would've been caught
with "dangerous narcotics with intent to distribute."
It would be different of the Pigboy was a "less government" type of

"Bush told us that Iraqis will not be tortured again
(after) Saddam. For one year
we tried hard to believe him. Then when the
Abu Gulag pictures were made public
we were told over and over that those responsible
would be held accountable.
But now, one year later, those who signed the
decrees authorizing torture, and Bush
himself, have not been held accountable. We
are now told that what was done was
by few people but we are not fools - we
know a lie when we hear one."

Subject: Dear Red States
We're ticked off at the way you've treated California,
and we've decided we're leaving.
We intend to form our own country, and we're taking
the other Blue States with us.
In case you aren't aware, that includes Hawaii,
Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin,
Michigan, Illinois and all the Northeast. We believe
this split will be beneficial to the nation,
and especially to the people of the new country
of New California.
To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and
all the slave states.
We get stem cell research and the best beaches.
We get Elliot Spitzer. You get Ken Lay.
We get the Statue of Liberty. You get OpryLand.
We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom.
We get Harvard. You get Ole' Miss.
We get 85 percent of America's venture capital
and entrepreneurs. You get Alabama.
We get two-thirds of the tax revenue, you get to
make the red states pay their fair share.
Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent
lower than the Christian Coalition's,
we get a bunch of happy families. You get
a bunch of single moms.
Please be aware that Nuevo California will be
pro-choice and anti-war, and we're going to
want all our citizens back from Iraq at once. If
you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals.
They have kids they're apparently willing to send
to their deaths for no purpose, and they don't care
if you don't show pictures of their children's
caskets coming home. We do wish you success in Iraq,
and hope that the WMDs turn up, but we're not willing
to spend our resources in Bush's Quagmire.
With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm
control of 80 percent of the country's fresh water,
more than 90 percent of the pineapple and lettuce,
92 percent of the nation's fresh fruit, 95 percent
of America's quality wines (you can serve French
wines at state dinners) 90 percent of all cheese,
90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the
U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias
and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools,
plus Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.
With the Red States, on the other hand, you will
have to cope with 88 percent of all obese Americans
(and their projected health care costs), 92 percent
of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100 percent of the
tornadoes, 90 percent of the hurricanes, 99 percent
of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100 percent of all
televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University,
Clemson and the University of Georgia.
We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.
Additionally, 38 percent of those in the Red states
believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale,
62 percent believe life is sacred unless we're
discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44 percent say
that evolution is only a theory, 53 percent that
Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61 percent of you
crazy bastards believe you are people with higher
morals then we lefties.
By the way, we're taking the good pot, too.

Say Muslims Were Sold
"They sold us for a briefcase full of money" said one
They fed them well. The Pakistani tribesmen slaughtered
a sheep in honor of their guests,
Arabs and Chinese Muslims famished from fleeing
U.S. bombing in the Afghan mountains.
But their hosts had ulterior motives: to sell them
to the Americans, said the men who are
now prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.
Bounties ranged from $3,000 to $25,000, the detainees
testified during military tribunals.
A former CIA intelligence officer who helped lead
the search for bin Laden told whore AP
the accounts sounded legitimate because U.S. allies
regularly got money to help catch al-Qaidas.
Gary Schroen said he took a suitcase of $3 million
in cash into Afghanistan himself to help
supply and win over warlords to fight for U.S.
"It wouldn't surprise me if we paid rewards," said Schroen,
who retired after 32 years in the CIA.
A wide variety of detainees at Gitmo alleged
they were sold into capture.
Is Bush playing some wacky shell game with human lives?
He needs a political victory, so he gives millions in cash to warlords
to point out their
political enemies who are then kidnapped and flown to Gitmo to be tortured?
Subject: defending your country?
Bart, I don't get you.
You go on and on about the illegal Iraq war,
yet you claim these
military/mercenaries are 'serving their country'?
Bart, this is just NOT true. They are NOT serving
They are serving the elite Bush machine, and doing
a really shitty job at it.
Why are people supposed to support these murderers?
They were not forced to join. They joined voluntarily.
They kill voluntarily, and many of them like it.
I fail to see these men as heroes.
The true heroes were the men who were forced to
fight in Vietnam and clearly
understand war is not fucking cool, nor is it cool
to 'defend your country' by
killing innocent people for oil at the request
of the murdering chimp.
Sorry Bart, I just do not, can not, and will not
see these paid killers as defending America?
From what? Fake WMD?
All these people are doing in Iraq is fuelling
the anti-America fire, apparently with your blessing.
Certainly you won't be next to jump on the bandwagon
accusing those who
deserted their stations as un-American?
You know I love you but this is too much.
Deanna, it's hard to argue if we start from Square
One each time.
To keep this short, the point you need to address
The military is a tool that Bush is misusing.
If Bush uses a 57 Chevy to run down a family of ducks on the road,
do you blame the drunk asshole behind the wheel or General Motors?
If Bush takes a chainsaw to Sequoia National Park and drops 100 trees
do you blame him or the chainsaw he misused in his crime of vandalism?
If you can find a way to make it the chainsaw's fault, I'll agree with

It is beginning to look like the Republicans

Ever since she turned comedian on national TV, (with

last night Cheney on Larry King alluded to
running her for president. This would keep

Instead of having an empty suit in the white house,

That proves Clinton was a BIG liar, and
yet Bush's lies of greed have killed 1664 soldiers
