I've have been at the saturation point with Fox News' lies for a very long time and what has confused me most about it is that the other news sources have been letting them get away with it!!!! Do you honestly think Huntley, Brinkley or Cronkite would have stood by silently for their lack of integrity and vicious lies? I don't. And I've been pleasantly surprised in recent days to trip across some folks who found their cojones and took a stand.
I read a lot of newspapers online on both sides of the fence that appears to exist in politics -- mostly the editorial pages but also the news --and I was delighted with this gutsy, courageous editorial by Howell Raines, former editor of the New York Times. He really says a lot about ethics and honesty and calls upon the media to take stand.
In this CNN's Rick Sanchez takes on Fox. What do you think?
"The Ed Show" is wacky and off the wall sometimes and sometimes right on but he usually makes sense and is good at skewering the idiots of either party and that's what I call that "fair and balanced". Today's show re: pubic option on healthcare is right on and scary.
Y'all can watch part two of this here.
My take is that y'all and I, as well as the rest of us ordinary mortals are not getting what we need and won't ever get it as long as our health is a political football. Sigh.
Thanks for all your good wishes for my family. It was a nice day. Now I get to go back to my irregularly scheduled traumas.
