Lost in The Disinformation Society, The Masses are Not Happy

Last Wednesday I posted a piece about Grover Norquist and the Republican control of the media aka "The Republican Noise Machine." Yesterday in his speech on the Senate floor, John Kerry referred to the right-wing's control of the media, "We have an Administration that continues to want to fund fake newscasts to mislead people all across America."

"The Administration's willingness to consistently abandon the truth has done great damage. Americans are less willing to listen -- less likely to trust or take anything that is said in Washington seriously."

The battle for the hearts and minds of America has taken a great toll. We're inundated with fake news, mis-reported news and a grave lack coverage of some news. Yesterday MSNBC reported Voters dissatisfied with Bush, Congress. That story quickly got buried by other news, lest we find out that an NBC/WSJ poll reveals 'angry electorate'.
