zero to lib in three minutes
one of the things i like about the radio is that since they're trying to cram the news into those hourly breaks where they have seven minutes for headlines, weather, traffic, and the so-important "male enhancement" ads. there's little space for bias, left or right, in that timeframe, so you actual get some straightforward, if superficial, reporting for once.

so maybe i'm hypersensitive, but last night, the news article went something like this: "colin powell today defended the numbers used by the administration that show decrease in the number of terrorist attacks. the bush administration has been touting these numbers as success in the war on terror, but two professors discovered that they didn't include november and december. when these months are included, there is actually an increase."

it was alot longer than that, it actually ran probably 45 seconds or so, but does anybody else see what's missing here? the news item is that powell was out defending the numbers they used, but they didn't include a single thing that he said. the entire bit was what other people have said to attack them, without his defense.

so, i don't know, maybe i'm oversensitive, but that struck me as being remarkably biased.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
