It's ok, whether they are left of right, don't worry, they are doing a good job of educating the American public.

Saw a show here last night where they had a guy on the street in LA interviewing people at random. He was asking them "Who should America attack next?" then asking them to point out the country nominated on a map. The map had a few of the country names written in the wrong places as a bit of an extra challenge.

A couple of people, in all seriousness, said 'France' but couldn't really explain why. One guy said that the whole of the Middle East should be nuked into a glass ashtray. Another said Sri Lanka but then admitted they had no idea why or where Sri Lanka was, they just had 'heard the name around'. And of course most said Nth Korea. But on the map 'Nth Korea' was written where Australia is, with 'Sth Korea' being New Zealand. Everyone just accepted it. A few made a comment on not realising how big Nth Korea was....

Entertaining.

I'm sure they showed all responses, including intelligent ones. Or was this a show with an agenda??

They wanted to attack France? The Middle East? Good Lord, I'm glad those are not elected officials.

and we wonder why so many americans support the war in Iraq. regardless of the media in this country, Bush is good at propaganda. Better than most presidents. The guy is more teflon than Clinton.

That being said, I should disclose that I work for the elite print media. But considering the organization I work for, I can assure you that my company is not a member of the liberal media. And be aware, that the media leaning you are all referring to appears on the editorial pages of papers, not the news pages.

ANNNYWAY

I really appreciated Kerry's evironmental policy

cos I HATE politicians' viewpoint of alternate energy sources taking money and profits and jobs...thats why the US didn't sign Koyoto.... it's GOING to happen in the next 50 years; I'll be surprised if there are any gas-fueled cars. The US should lead the way...in the end more jobs will be made and you'll be the world leader in making the environment better

FUCK GAS AND OIL!!!
