It is well known that liberals control the media....
I'm fairly sick and tired of this right wing left wing labeling crap.
It distracts from the reality of the situations whose importance is too great.
Unless the media became left wing when Bush got into office than things would have been much different for Clinton, they were not, this left wing media assertion is crap.
Left wing is just the right wings, or current administrations term for people questioning and criticizing the goverment, even right wing people call eachother different kinds of right wing when questioning or criticizing Bush policy, like US borders or Iraq, if they don't just flat out call them terrorists or sympathizers instead that is.
Yes, left and right wing are actual possistions based on existing political ideologies, however, in terms of the current "war" on information in our society, these terms are being abused past the point of irrelevance.
Did CBS not forge documents to make bush look bad?
That is a good question, so is why they would do so. But do not kid yourselves into believing you know the answers to them.
Because firstly, they had no need to forge anything to make Bush look bad.
Secondly, do you even remember what they had supposedly forged? If I remeber correctly it was about Bush's military record. A subject still in debate because of the clouding of information by many people forging documents. A point never dealt with, it was case closed once what's his nuts resigned in claimed admission to supporting "false" information.
And thirdly, from what I've researched and seen, the answer would be no, because what they said on CBS was confirmed by other independant investigators and media. That Bush has been a fuck up his whole life, getting by on his name and family influence to even get into the guard over others running from actual combat, that he scored a 24 on his flight school or asvab placement, which is the absolute minimun to even be in the military as a grunt, let alone a pilot. That he indeed was absent from duty, some claimed in part because of a refusal to take drug tests, and that indeed records were taken and changed and forged, and not by CBS. Which by the way they never claimed or submitted to, they went with a source who documents were said to be forged.
I'm not going to claim to know the reality of that situation or the next I'm going to remark on, but I need you guys to think a little harder on both of these things.
Since you mentioned the WTC bombing 1, which believe what you like, since most of you have never heard of this explanation anyway, there are investigators who claim to have absolutely proven, due to taped evidence by a suspicious patsy, that that bombing was an FBI "drill" made real for the sake of state sponsored terrorism, which you really need to be looking into. http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/OK/wtcbomb.html
And to finish by adding to that, speaking of WTC terrorism, 9/11, if you want to somewhere to start thinking critically, which is not a negative term by the way, but with non biased, pressumptuous, or even intentional influence through lies and propaganda, then I suggest, shit I've begged people to take a little more time and open mindedness towards building 7.
Ya know, the one not hit by a plane, that suffered extremely minor fire damage but somehow fell in perfect free fall only possible by demolitions. The one that finished off the trio of buildings owned by one man who made billions off of an absurd insurance policy only obtained shortly before the incident after he only invested a small portion to begin with towards becoming the true owner. Plus many other important points I wish everyone was far more aware of and concerned about.
Uh, having said that, both right and left wing media and politicians are bought and paid for as well as otherwise deeply corrupted. They work in tandem burning those who question them or fight back.
Journalism and politics have changed immensely since 9/11 in the sense that they have both been targeted by terrorism.
The anthrax letters, from US labs in US military bases by the way (Fort Detrick Maryland to be exact), basically resulting in the take over of Fox News and the finally successful Patriot Act legislation. To add to the journalism side, they have been targeted and killed to an absurd degree in Iraq since the war. And were blatant and probably not very ironic in their choice of terms and use as being imbedded (or in bed with) with the military.
Neither Osama nor Saddam (both CIA assests) had nearly as much to gain, nor any degree of fathomable ability to conduct 9/11, but a lot to lose by incurring the wrath of the most bloated military in the world.
Whereas factions within the government itself wishing to control the most bloated military in the world, as well as wishing to control the rest of the world, had everything to gain by continuing with a decades long documented and proveable track record of state sponsored terrorism to start a war on an adjective. An admittedly endless war.
This is our legacy now as Americans and or people of the free world, allowing information to be uncertain, let alone twisted and abused, and swallowing it whole while either cowering in fear or ignoring in contempt, contentedness, or apathy.
