[url=http://mediamatters.org/]CBS report on "mind-numbing" national debt made no mention of Republican-led Congress' years of deficit spending on Bush tax cuts, Iraq
[/url]

CBS Evening News report on the national debt, the current level of which both anchor Katie Couric and correspondent Anthony Mason described as "mind-numbing," failed to quote a single Democrat and did not point out the extent to which deficit spending by Republican-led Congresses has contributed to the debt.

That is par for the course. Rs stand in Congress and decry our country's financial situation without ever saying THEY are the ones who legislated all this. They blame the Dems, of course.

Sometimes one wonders if anyone ever pays attention.

And it's to be expected... This side blames that side. That's politics. What is new is that a national broadcaster takes sides.

It's not new in Bush's America.

True, but it is new to the last 10 or so years. My big platform on this site is to promote the fact that this has little to do with the USA but rather the Western Empire.

Everything on this site is relevant to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden... etc and the other countries are victims of it.

What we need, as subscibers to this site, Common Dreams, Truthout, and the dozens of other sites throughout the world is a TV voice with international syndication. Sure, an impossible task right up until someone does it.

That is what LINK TV is trying for. They do have a foot in the door anyway.

cbs didn't get the whole story huh?

so where is the sctick about the socalled liberal media bias on this one?

truth be known it's the corporate/facist neocon control of the msm that's the likely perp here.

who owns cbs news?...............would be the beginning question to help determine what does or doesn't get reported.
