Iraq - story "too important to ignore" (but not in the way the CBS reporter thinks)
If you know anyone who seriously doubts the "MainStream Media" (which I call the "Dominant Media" because it's anything but "mainstream") has an anti-Bush political agenda in covering the war in Iraq, send this to them:
CBS knowingly presenting al Qaeda propaganda disguised as an ordinary Iraqi blaming the U.S. for "not bringing Democracy" (which we did do, however, such statement notwithstanding - more than 70% of the people risked death to vote) and not making things "better" than under Saddam (which we've also done, however, since Saddam can no longer reconstitute his chemical, biological and nuclear weapons programs) is yet another example of smoking-gun evidence of CBS pursuing its anti-Bush political agenda regardless of the adverse consequences to the U.S. - especially since CBS knows that a MAJOR component of al Qaeda's war against us (as well as that of Hezbollah, Hamas, & Ismalic Jihad with the rapidly growing collabortion of Venezuela's Hugo Chavez) is a propaganda war.
This puts Dan Rather's fraudulent hit-job on Bush to shame.
Jim is a proud descendant of 18th Century criminal exiles from England who swam to the Outer Banks when the British ship taking them to a Georgia penal colony sank in a storm near Cape Hatteras. Having the prescience to prevent their descendants from becoming "TarHeels," they immediately migrated to Virginia, where, within just a few generations they worked their way up into poverty. Jim's grandfather was the first in the family tree to see the distant horizons, but his career was cut short by severe injuries he sustained when a cousin cut down the tree.
After a brief stint in the Amry (ours) following graduation from law school, he began his legal career in the state bureaucracy but was never able to break into the federal bureaucracy. Several years later, he entered the private practice of law and co-founded a small law publishing company. Later, finding the publishing of small laws unstimulating and finding his private practice too private to be lucrative, he began writing political satire/commentary. His greatest vice is taking himself too seriously.
Although he regularly teaches Continuing Legal Education courses to lawyers, he's too-often available through he Rubber Chicken Speakers Bureau to speak on politics, satire, etc., at luncheons, dinners, root canals, funerals, etc. His speaking fees are so outrageously high they border on criminal price-gouging, but as a free-market advocate, he defends his fees on the higher moral ground of charging whatever the traffic will bear.
