Subject: calm down on the bitterness
I've been reading you for years Bart.
I start at Bartcop, then Truthout, then Commondreams,
then SmirkingChimp etc. and I listen
to Air America and then once in awhile catch
the cavedwellers on hate radio like Limbaugh and Hannity.
I've been doing this forever and I'm telling you
that you are becoming too bitter and divisive.
Moi? Bitter and devisive?
I have a
good great time
every day - I don't think I'm bitter or devisive.
How the hell can you "ever" insult Bill Moyers?
Hmmm, as a rule, I like Bill Moyers, but
don't you think it's a little odd
that he (apparently) just now figured out why
the Texaco Twins went to war?
Bill has been the only mainstream media journalist
that has consistently gone after and broadcast
the questions, inconsistencies, lies, horrors
of the Bush administration from the get go, even under
the constraints of public television not some
safe blog without ramifications like your situation.
I admire him for that.
I know some readers get pissy and threaten to
cancel on your blog and its important to you,
me and many others, but Bartcop ain't the same
thing as a Moyers show on PBS. Bill has been
telling truth to power more than anyone accept
maybe Olbermann in the broadcast media and for
you to suggest that he is only coming around
now about the war being for oil is an insult.
But his words mean what they mean, right?
He wrote a column in June 08 that says:
"And now the bottom line turns out to be....the
bottom line. It is about oil."
The word "now" implies he just realized what you
and I knew years ago.
He has questioned the motivations of the fraudulent
war more than anyone and he just because
he happened to tape a very concise monologue
detailing the war for oil proof so it can easily be
digested by our overworked and tired population
doesn't mean he has been negligent as a
journalist as your comments suggest.
Also, for Christ sake, stop hammering our side!
Stop attacking Rachel Maddow because Hillary lost.
I never attacked Rachel because Hillary lost.
I attacked her lack of credibility, her fake-ass
mind-reading and her deliberate distortions.
How do you think she got that job at MSGOP -
for being honest and objective?
She got that job because she's Olbermann's echo
- not a compliment.
Rachel is fantastic and just because you might
not have the same opinion once in awhile doesn't mean
she deserves to be attacked. We need all
hands on deck, all working for our side and she rips McCain
better than anyone and does it without needless
hyperbole, just with blistering facts.
If she would stick to attacking McCain we'd get along better,
but she's got some Andrew Sullivan in her and she can't let go.
Thanks for the frank and honest e-mail.
