Nothing like a grand case of propaganda just when the tables are about to be turned.. We're speaking of real scare tactics today people.. and how it can work when the (few) elected Republicans in Washington are considering going against GWB on troop pullout in Iraq. So, what is one to do when these republicans are about to pull a vote on such... The President gets on the horn, and creates a buzz that the al-Qaida is "seriously" going to come to America and destroy the country. (They have the evidence to prove it.... they say)... Now, we all know how the news media falls all over this, as it has worked several times before... The end results... the elected officials in Washington back off on their claim, and nothing happens... We're all safe again.. until the next time..

Stay tuned...

[/url]

Maybe the activists are getting fed up...and the aggressive stance is what they're going to be doing between now and the 2008 election...supposing we actually have one, that is.

Liberal activists are stepping up their campaign against Fox News Channel by pressuring advertisers not to patronize the network.


MoveOn.org, the Campaign for America's Future and liberal blogs like DailyKos.com are asking thousands of supporters to monitor who is advertising on the network. Once a database is gathered, an organized phone-calling campaign will begin, said Jim Gilliam, vice president of media strategy for Brave New Films, a company that has made anti-Fox videos.

The groups have successfully pressured Democratic presidential candidates not to appear at any debate sponsored by Fox, and are also trying to get Home Depot Inc. (HD) to stop advertising there.

At least 5,000 people nationwide have signed up to compile logs on who is running commercials on Fox, Gilliam said. The groups want to first concentrate on businesses running local ads, as opposed to national commercials.

"It's a lot more effective for Sam's Diner to get calls from 10 people in his town than going to the consumer complaint department of some pharmaceutical company," Gilliam said.

This week's cover of the right wing mag, Weekly Standard. Ha ha. And to think the New York Times just hired their editor, Bill Kristol, to be a columnist.

Is there no shame

IF the fall of the House of Clinton were a fact, it would never fall enough to be as low as the House of War Criminals (Bush).
