Ever notice how the mainstream media has their push-button buzzwords that they use over and over and over?<br><br>For example, "hardest hit" has to be one of the biggest. A search of Google news reveals 2,530 instances of the phrase in the news today. <br><br>While we're at it...<br><br>8.960 instances of "right-wing"<br><br><br><br>
so the Media sucks Why ?<br><br>because they aren't giving GW and his thugs the "green light" any more? <br>they aren't kissing his arse any more?<br>they're asking tougher questions ?<br>they're not dropping stories after a few wimpy inquires?<br>Bush's "stooge" in the Press core was discovered?<br>they aren't letting W slide on his fk-ups any more?<br>they're getting tired of W deceptive- evasive answers (when he gives one) ? <br><br>gee I think they suck too , but because the stellar journalism like that we saw by Woodward and Bernstein can rarely be found any more.<br><br><br>David (OFI)<br>
hmmm....let me count the ways....<br><br>1) If the news isn't "sexy" then it's not worth reporting.<br>2) If the news is "sexy" it doesn't have to be true.<br>3) Pretty blonde girls going missing are page 1 news - anyone else going missing can just rot.<br>4) Celebrities accused of serious crimes must have 24x7 coverage of court cases.<br>5) Anyone committing a crime against a pretty blonde girl is evil incarnate and should rot in hell - commiting a crime against anyone else yields ambivalent interest at best.<br>6) US troops suck. End of story. If Mother Teresa had joined the US army she would have been destined for heck.<br>7) Brad Pitt is one of the most important people in the world, along with Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Angelina Joley, Paris Hilton, and a few others - if one of them farts, it's worthy of front page news.<br><br><br><br>We all do what we do for the same reason: because it seems like a good idea at the time.
