MSM spin already vague poll- negatively attack 9/11 "conspiracy"
Lesson- Dems are nuts for thinking Bushies are LIHOPS...something that anyone that has read even govt. docs and the public testimony not in the 9/11 report already knows (further, and at any conservative rate, the administration at least utterly failed preventing it from happening in any traditional or conventional sense and therefore should have been routed out of offices they stole in any real democratic society- see Cold War partisanship dynamics as a model). BUT, regardless of that aside, the MM linked piece reveals many things about conservative AND liberal assumptions about 9/11 issues and interpretations. The term "flawed" is interesting in the MM title (a liberal to progressive leaning media watchdog). "Conservative" media they say. What does that say of the "liberal" and "left" press that are not much different on 9/11? Facts don't seem to matter to any of the aforementioned.
Two lowlights of comedy: 1) O'Really says 22% of Americans believe the "madness" that W knew in advance. That's only 2pts. less than the no. that now support W (Nixon was at 23% when he bailed). Madness abounds apparently. 2) And here's Limbaugh, "The Democrat Party is not mainstream. It is literally a bunch of deranged, delusional radicals." Dems may be deranged given how they can't seem prosecute the Bushies for obvious crimes from the U.S. attorney scandal and wiretapping to no WMD's, no Mission Accomplished, and no Katrina fix (no time to go into the dozens of others problems here). However, Dems are certainly not radical as evidenced by their mostly tepid behavior even after becoming the majority "opposition" party in congress.
Thought this may generate some interesting discussion (much more could be extrapolated)...thanks again to all of you that came to, participated in, or otherwise supported the 4/21 "Deconstructing Deceit" show in Berkeley.
P.S. Maybe another thread...Another recent MM piece deals with Giuliani and 9/11 first responder issues in media...again, possibly of interest.
A great site for more on 9/11 environmental issues that many of you probably already know here
