    Very interesting and worth reading the whole article. Also helps show the lie of the "liberal media"

    The article has info on such scandals as:

    Al Gore about his role in the Love Canal toxic waste clean-up.

    The Whitewater scandal

    J.R. Hatfield's book "Fortunate Son"

    Iran Contra

    Bush and the National Guard

    It's difficult not to be scared of an idiot that also happens to be the most powerful person on the planet. No, I didn't vote for him.

    Wow. Well-written article. Some of those details (such as smear of Al Gore as a habitual liar) were covered in Al Franken's book, but it's good to read all of this summarized in one article.

    Yes, Republicans are truly Teflon, while Democrats are magnets for criticism. And paid liars like Rush have the chutzpah, the audacity, to claim that the media has a liberal bias.

    In a similar vein, here's an article from The Guardian:

    Particularly when the government now controls the media consolidation.

    Journalists should not be scared of Bush, whomever is in charge is scared of Bush, either that or they are supportive of him.

    Apart from a few and widely derided news outlets, most of the media seems to act like there is nothing going on. Even then they are attacked for being too liberal.

    It all sets the stage for an eventual return of a 60s like era. Bring it on.
