Dick McDonald BrookesNews.Com Monday 5 December 2005 The ongoing American tragedy is the ability of Democrat-controlled media to hide truth from the American people and blow insignificant and immaterial events into concerns so grave as to plummet the poll numbers of an exceptional presidency below 40 percent. This is a significant tragedy few in America are aware of. If the "truth will set you free", Democrats have incarcerated the American public in propaganda so devastating that rather than win a war, they are slowly becoming surrender advocates. A famous and a recent Democrat candidate for the vice presidency of the United States, Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, wrote an article essentially telling the American people that Democrats have been lying about the progress of the American troops in Iraq and imploring them not to believe the media's omissions of that progress and not to abandon the "27 million Iraqi for 10,000 terrorists". Other than the Wall Street Journal editorial, not one major media outlet, newspaper or TV, has reported this important news event; a criminal omission. The Weekly Standard reported that the entire Valerie Plame/Joe Wilson CIA leak case was orchestrated by Democrat CIA bureaucrats. A scandal so serious, it strikes at the very core of our democracy. The report states that many CIA leaks are designed specifically to undermine the confidence of the American people in the Bush Administration and because the CIA and most agencies in Washington are so overwhelmingly infested with Democrat Party partisans the public is deceived into believing the bureaucratic leaks, lies and propaganda disseminated by their Democrat-controlled media. The right-wing blogs are the only resort America has for truth and an American perspective. Even Fox and their lead commentator, Bill O'Reilly, didn't comment or interview more than one Swift Boat Veteran and then dissed all 264 of them. He presently is pressing the Administration for withdrawal plans from Iraq when such disclosure would aid the enemy. The effectiveness of Sean Hannity is often blunted by the inane Democrat talking points of Alan Colmes. The direction of that company is being subverted by the majority of its staff which are Democrats. So we continue to drive blind in America. The smokescreen is so thick and pervasive it boggles the mind. How can a country, so steeped in freedom, be captured by the lies, deceits and omissions of such a ruthless and criminal element? A party so corrupt they sacrifice truth in exchange for their return to power. A party who would leave Iraq prematurely and risk America's safety for political gain; a truly sad condition in which America finds itself today. And it doesn't matter what Joe Lieberman says, you won't hear about it. You will hear more trash from the CIA leaked to their allies in the media to fill the airwaves and columns with mindless and unimportant minutiae.

Wasn't one of the communist thing's to do on their list is take control of all media, news, television and radio..
