Judy Miller, the Armstrong Williams of WMD (tags)
Miller did things a journalist should never do. She shilled for a White House disinformation campaign that was promoting an invasion of Iraq, accepted control from the Pentagon, and deceptively misidentified her sources. Yet she hasn’t been fired by her official employer, the NY Times. Was Times senior management in on the game?
As with Terri Schaivo, It’s Time to Pull the Plug on a Brain-Dead US Media (tags)
The sorry display of editors making lame excuses for not informing the American public for over a month of the damning written evidence of Bush lying to get the U.S. into a needless war in Iraq—the Downing Street memos—makes it clear that no one who wants to know what’s going on should waste time reading or watching the corporate media. -------------------------------
Googling for Fun Can Be Depressing (tags)
Pick an important story and google it.

About that Missing and Misspent $87 Billion: Kerry Was Right to Vote No (tags)
Most of the money was supposedly “for the troops” but reports from the front of shortages of everything from bullets to bullet-proof vests suggest it was shifted elsewhere, while the $18 billion designated for rebuilding Iraq is, for the most part, AWOL. Instead of explaining his vote, Kerry should be blasting the Bush administration for corruption and incompetence in misusing the money.
Maybe Now We're the Silent Majority (tags)
The Bush administration’s campaign to equate criticism of the president with treason or disloyalty, and to harass and intimidate dissenters may be scaring much of the public into silence. If so, he may be in for a big surprise on November 2: Revenge of the silenced.
