    Oh come on T, it was funny. Most of our local reporters are nitwits with high opinions of themselves simply because they are on TV and read a teleprompter, and even then they frequently screw that up.

    I know for a fact from my own experence not to trust what the press tries to force feed us. I've seen them twist facts on cases I know directly didn't happen the way they said they did. They are no better than the jerks in government. They go after the negative and forget the positives of life. They have plenty of guys like you to suck the negative up to keep them going. It's ran too much like entertainment and not actually news anymore. What part of reporting includes trying to change the world? Just report, don't add you're own twist on what happened.

    I seem to recall not trusting the news alot before the war.

    I was getting my news from the internet.

    I would also listen to the news while searching the net.

    The corporate news was falt out drum beating for the war.

    There were a few who had the guts to question but very few.

    I knew before we went to war that there were NO AQ ties , No WMDs and that it would end very badly for the US and Iraq would end up in a civil war.

    I was told I was crazy.

    I have now proved to be right and am still called crazy by the 28% or so who still think Bush is some infalible God.

    To some news is only what they want to hear or its all lies because its what they dont wnat to hear.

    Now who is it who sucks up the "negative"?
