A Few Rather Discouraging Tidbits

I urge you to read Thom Hartman's "When Democracy Failed: The Warnings of History." It is long but many find it overwhelmingly compelling.

Speaking of overwhelming...

A Warrior for God, Army Lt. General William G. "Jerry" Boykin, deputy undersecretary of the Defense of Intelligence, believes that our army is a Christian army, and that his god is a real god, while Muslims' god is an idol.

He has praised the leadership of President Bush, whom he extolled as "a man who prays in the Oval Office."
"George Bush was not elected by a majority of the voters in the United States," Boykin told an Oregon congregation. "He was appointed by God."

Why Fox News Really Is Evil
: It spreads ignorance and hate.

Eighty percent of Fox viewers were found to hold at least one misperception, compared to 23 percent of NPR/PBS consumers. All the other media fell in between...

Among Bush supporters, those who said they follow the news "very closely", were found more likely to hold misperceptions. Those Bush supporters, on the other hand, who say they follow the news "somewhat closely" or "not closely at all" held fewer misperceptions.

Conversely, those Democratic supporters who said they did not follow the news very closely were found to be twice as likely to hold misperceptions as those who said they did, according to PIPA.
