Don’t want to be an American idiot.
One nation controlled by the media.
Information age of hysteria.
It’s calling out to idiot America.
“` Green Day/”American Idiot”
April 15 is typically the last day you can file your taxes without incurring the wrath of the IRS.
Thanks to the GOP, Faux News, right-wing radio and assholes like Michelle Malkin, April 15 became the launching of the Tax Day Tea Party protests.
Or as it should have been called “Angry White People Who Don’t Like Obama Day.”
Faux Noise Network dropped its pretense of being “fair and balanced” as it went from reporting the news to promoting and cheerleading the events,
One of the Fauxtards, Megan Kelly interviewed right-wing blowhard L. Brent (Bozo) Bozell as he complained about the lack of coverage by genuine mainstream media outlets and Kelly stupidly admitted her network’s overt bias.
“You know Brent, it’s been interesting because Fox News covered these Tea Parties, and we were one of the only organizations to give it any publicity or p.r. prior to the fact that it happened, and it was so under-covered by virtually every news organization.” Megyn Kelly
“Publicity or p.r. (public relations)?” Perhaps Miss Kelly and the rest of her fellow Faux cheerleaders should read up on the Society of Professional Journalists code of ethics.
— Distinguish between advocacy and news reporting. Analysis and commentary should be labeled and not misrepresent fact or context.
—Avoid conflicts of interest, real or perceived.
— Remain free of associations and activities that may compromise integrity or damage credibility.
Faux News: We distort. You can’t decide.
We can now sit back with a nice cold glass of…beer, and reflect upon what the protests actually accomplished.
In the short term? Not a damn thing. A lot of people got to walk in the sun and get a early start working on their tans because from the tv footage I saw, it was Whiter than a Osmond family reunion.
I guess if was a good day to be a Angry White Man. Most of the protestors were out to wave signs and hear speeches about how politicians don’t listen and spending is out of control and government is growing too large.
Of course, all that was true this same time last year, but there was a Republican in the White House, so nobody said squat.
I don’t begrudge our conservative colleagues their mass therapy session. They needed something to show they weren’t totally disenfranchiesed by the rout of the Republicans in 2006 and 2008.
Let the born-again budget hawks, conspiracy theorists, Obama-bashers and other fringe groups that glommed onto the demonstrations have their day in the sun. We will wait and see if the protest leads to anything meaningful and enduring or not.
