The 'Media Party' is over

My goodness. The amount of smoke of mirrors in this piece boggles the mind.

Despite the so-called "discrediting" of Dan Rather's report, is a rich source of documentation for Bush having been AWOL during his Air National Guard service.

Also see: and Bush fell short on duty at guard and especially, CBS' COWARDICE AND CONFLICTS BEHIND PURGE.

What I really see happening is a "purging" of anyone in a position to "threaten" Bush and the PNAC agenda. What you are seeing is fascism at work by further tightening control of everything we see, hear, and read in the mainstream media. ALL MAINSTREAM MEDIA OUTLETS ARE PROPAGANDA OUTLETS. Remember that. It is time to start getting your news from alternative internet sources.

It is also noteworthy that Bill Moyers names Leslie Moonves in his keynote speech at the 2003 Media Reform conference as having something other than the promotion of good journalism or protecting our democracy motives.

A few more very short comments below.

WASHINGTON - ... Now the AMMP is reeling, and not just from the humiliation of CBS News.

I gotta wonder why the Boston Globe hasn't been similarly "discredit" or "humiliated".

In this situation, the last thing the AMMP needed was to aim wildly at the
president — and not only miss, but be seen as having a political motivation in
attacking in the first place.

For all they've said about CBS, Dan Rather, and the media, why did they leave out the Swift Boat Veterans Against Kerry nonsense?
