Does anyone know where I can get a news paper?
It's late, but I had this thought and I wanted to get it down.
All these mea culpas from the press? You know, the NY Times
and The Washington Post
coming out, and sayin' how they're all sorry about not questioning the WMD evidence? Oh, we should have asked more questions. We're sorry we let you down.
If they were really sorry, why don't they go back and ask some real questions? What evidence, really, what evidence, has ever actually linked Al Queda to 9/11? When are they going to ask? When are these people, the holy fuckin' Fourth Estate
going to do their fucking jobs?
The tape? What about it? Analyze the bastard! Compare it with other Osama tapes. There are a few now. Is it really the same guy? I don't know. I'd like to. How about some major news agency doing a story on how all the tapes match or don't? I don't really care which way the whole thing plays, but I would like to know.
Why is it that there seems to be so much 'evidence', or at least a hell of alot of stories to the contrary everywhere I look, but I've yet to see THE media do any investigating?
Those mea culpas were supreme bullshit. Oh, we let you down, but just that once. How the hell do I know that? I have yet to see any real 'journalism' in the mainstream media on just who the fuck was behind 9/11. And please don't tell me to read the fuckin' National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States
. Hell, it's the fuckin' Warren Commission Report
of the first decade of the 21st century. Only worse.
Oh, you say, I'm just a fuckin' tin hatter? Well, yeah, that's what people told me in October of 2001 when I was sayin' the Bin Laden family was allowed to leave the country while Americans weren't allowed to fly. I have no clue what the impetous was to finally break that story, but it sure wasn't started by the Times or WaPo.
What else have they missed? Why are the editors still there? Hell, why does anyone buy their papers. There. That's the answer. Boycott their publicatons for a month. Cancel your subscriprions, don't buy a copy at the news stands. Just ignore them for a month. Let's say, October. Right during the run up to this equally phoney bullshit we call an election. Ignore them completely. Don't cite them or their stories. Get the info from somewhere else. Let 'em know just how irrelevant they are as a news source.
Might as well get your news from blogs.
For the past year or more, I've been getting most of my 'news' from The fucking Daily Show!! And that is sad. The show is good, but getting all my news from 15 minutes of skits and parodies (supplemented w/ a healthy dose of C-SPAN) is SAD.
But I started by askin', how do I know that Al Queda had anything to do with 9/11? If they weren't really involved, it makes the whole question of whether there was a connection between Iraq and Al Queda kinda moot, doesn't it? I mean anyone can make a fake tape
. Where are the journalists?
Everything now appears to be a replay of the sixties. Remember Laugh-In
? I used to get my news from them. But I was 9-10 years old back then. No, we are being seriously screwed.
Anyone know how much a subscription to Aljazeera
costs? And do they offer home delivery?
