Liberal Media My Ass

Those of us out here on the left edge of the blogosphere know that there is no such thing as the "Liberal Media". We've known it for years, forever it seems like.

But the fact that it doesn't exist -- like that invisible Soviet sub -- doesn't stop the wingnuttery morons on the right from flailing away at it continually.

Okay, so Peter Daou over at The Daou Report has issued a great challenge to all of those rightwing assholes who claim -- without bothering to have the actual proof -- that the SCLM hates Bush, hates Republicans, hates American, etc. etc. ad infinitum ad nauseum.

The challenge is a simple one: If you blame the media for the Cheney mess, prove it! Read Peter's challenge and laugh to yourself over the fact that not one single crypto-fascist neocon wingnut blogger can meet it.

Cheers to Peter Daou!

There won't be a media soon...

From the BBC...
US 'losing media war to al-Qaeda'
The US is losing the propaganda war against al-Qaeda and other enemies, defence chief Donald Rumsfeld has said.
It must modernise its methods to win the minds of Muslims in the "war on terror", as "enemies had skilfully adapted" to the media age, he said.Washington and the army must respond faster to events and learn to exploit the internet and satellite TV, he said.

Separately, President Bush said the US should not be discouraged by setbacks in Iraq and must realise it is at war.

The military and government will take over the media to fight terrorism!
