LIGHTING A FIRE Under CNN
Where's your coverage of the Downing Street memo?
According to this site, we should contact the media and ask why they're not covering the Downing Street memo (wanna know what the Downing Street memo is? Check out the site). So I sent this in to CNN today:
"Where's your coverage on the Downing Street memo? I'm beginning to spread the word that TV news has become not only worthless, but actually dangerous. Why? Because you dupe people into thinking they're getting the information they need to help run a democracy."
Yes, that was harsh. But in my humble opinion the mainstream media are scared silly of Karl Rove. They need a colossal shove to get them over their fright and on to doing their extraordinarily vital job -- acting as the Fourth Part of our system of checks & balances.
Much thanks to abecerra for the photo of the person trying to light a fire under CNN
