Scary. Can you say "duck and cover"?

    Could this little piece of advice account for the Bush administrations reluctance to provide information or is it just that they're simply competent to provide neither? That's not to say we haven't learned a thing or two from hurricane Katrina.
     -- Terry Berg, Occidental, CA     
    Bush will not let the American people see the coffins returning from Iraq, you people are in the dark about the war by your Governments propaganda machine, wake up!!!!!!!!!

    Hmmm, is this out of Bible Bush Jr. talks about? I swear his collective group or Republicrat Administration and Caucus is really big on this; Clinton and his (Bush Jr.) daddy no doubt too.

    Yes, the Bush administration DOES, indeed, pass out the marching orders to its water-carriers daily. And they jump to the task...a gentle 'suggestion' usually does the trick.

    I think the news' duty is always to inform the public.

    I didn't like W. Bush, but find Obama is *MUCH* worse, since he has the mainstream media behind him all the way--lying, censoring, always abridging and editing. The 'news' is only propaganda these days.

    I have a news flash for Terry, Golok,Jurgrenson,and Gregoroff, Bush is not the president. We have a new one, the Kenyan by the name of Obama.We all know that governments lie,this is not big news. Check out almost everything that Nancy, Ralph, and Obama say on a daily basis for proof.

    Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin is just another continuation in exemplifying this dictator's dream. One, among an an innumerable cadre of examples: Even, the Global Commission on Drug Policy has determined the drug war to be a failure and lost but yet, the statist theocracy infesting this land continues its non-news information in the best Goebbels' tradition

    The quote was obviously first published some time ago. has anyone noticed the vast improvement since Mr. Hopey Changey has usurped the White House? Nope! if anything the propoganda machine has become even more obvious...more blatant.

    Good soley for historical info. However, it appears to be part of today's failed news reporting - especially under the present Obama administration and the "news" surrounding Hillary on the "lame stream" channels" and even FoxNews Network depending the "so called" "commentator.. FoxNews should change it's name to something more descriptive truthful like the FoxOpinion Network.
     -- Oark Guru, Arkansas     
    When I think of 'news' I remember Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite -- it was serious news, not nearly as biased as today's blame-stream media. 60 Minutes used to actually investigate corruption -- now, it is nothing more than a propaganda tool for propping up establishment statism. Remind me when the US has not been at war?

    Besides the fraud, the CCP's criminal puppet came to power using an age old technique.

    Now the Show Trial, and Kangaroo Court. The CR, Constitutional Republic, is all but lost to the whims of tyranny and despotism. If there is a Backbone of commonsense, guts, resolve, loyalty to OATH, now is the time to Stand UP against corrupt politicians or All confidence will be lost. The patriot will ask, then What do we fight for any longer. Yes Mike, the CCP's and UN's puppet.
