A handful of military personnel from the 4th Psychological Operations Group (i.e. PSYOPs) based at Fort Bragg in North Carolina have until recently been working in CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta. An enterprising Dutch journalist named Abe De Vries came up with this important story in mid-February, and he remains properly astounded that no mainstream news medium in the United States has evinced any interest in the story.
Can we break the corporate news monopoly before it breaks us?
Why it matters: planted questions deny your right to question candidates asking for your vote. It’s like trying to buy a car, and the dealer telling you only certain questions may be asked of him if you wish to make a purchase. You can’t ask the final price, you can’t ask about fuel economy, you can’t ask about reliability, or about any particulars of the car’s engine or maker because the dealer has arrogantly assumed you have no choice.
It was not the GOP defense of the Andrew Meyer tasering that angered me, it was the "liberals" defense of it and Kerry's tacit approval of it, when, in the irony of ironies, they were on the same page as the "fascist pigs" they blog about constantly. What did the far right have to say? did they condemn it? of course not, they were on the same page. Bill O'Reilly called Meyer a wimp and offered free "Don't tase me bro!" bumper stickers. CNN's Glenn "I-Should-Have-Drank-Myself-to Death-While-I-Had-the-Chance" Beck, ever the good and Christian Mormon sadistic corn-pone apron-boy and Marquis DeSade incarnate, said "Watching taser videos is a little like potato chips, you can't watch just one."

We would unite every white man in the South, who is opposed to negro suffrage, into one great Order of Southern Brotherhood, with an organization complete, active, vigorous, in which a few should execute the concentrated will of all, and whose very existence should be concealed from all but its members.”
“The lion’s grip of the order was upon our courts, and loyalty to that, displaced fealty to the state. If freemasonry ought to be abolished, it should certainly be so abolished as to prevent its restoration. No means of doing this can be conceived so competent as those furnished by the ballot boxes. These means are commended to our adoption, by the most urgent considerations, by their mildness, their safety, their sufficiency, and the tested insufficiency of all others.”

For those of you unfamiliar with the term, attacking a straw man is to create the illusion of having refuted an argument by misrepresenting the original argument, without ever actually refuting it. It’s practice is the shameful solace of pedants, debate team drop-outs and scorned ex-girlfriends; and you see it a lot in media punditry and politics.
