    Regarding the degradation of foreign press bureaus, the Chicago Tribune used to have a gangbuster group of reporters, they are all gone now and virtually everything comes from AP, Reuters, or off WaPo/NYT. All are the same sources:

    Conservatives think the media lies to them. This is a good instinct, but why does it always stop where it does? The media tells you we went to war over "weapons of mass destruction," instead of for Israel, and you believe it. Instead, you choose to believe that the basics are right --- just that there's this little liberal shade to it that makes the occupation look bad, when gee, it's really a bed of roses.

    I challenge conservatives and liberals alike to ask, "if the media is lying a little, could they also be lying a lot?"

    Go for it!

    I'd smoke 'em faster than your bow-tie boys in D.C.

    But I wouldn't have to if my nation's foreign policy weren't run by Jews. That's my point. What threatens the U.S. isn't extremist Muslims, it's extremist Jews. I say we ship 'em all out!
