Why I Hate the Media

Bill Moyers is a good journalist, a journalist of the old mold that wasn't worried about how they looked or how famous they were like the punks that anchor your daily news broadcasts now. Last night PBS aired a documentary called 'Buying the War' about how our political media didn't do their job in the run-up to the Iraq war. It is very very good.

In essence, at some point during the 80's our media stopped being skeptical of government. Rather than verifing what a source tells them they just repeat it and then when it turns out the source was using them for propoganda purposes they protect the source rather than burn them. The stories around Lynch and Tillman and the hearings on the the Hill this week show how evident this is.


So THAT is what Democracy Is

I love the writing of this guy. There is a pompous blowhard that is particularly irritating on the right-side of the blogsphere and this post does an excellent job of trashing something he wrote. At the same time it does a wonderful job of explaining a view of government I agree with.

Politics of Fear

Rudy needs a new play book: This crap doesn't fly anymore.

Honestly, this fear mongering might have gotten Bush elected a second time but does anyone really believe this crap anymore?

He says:

He added: “The Democrats do not understand the full nature and scope of the terrorist war against us.”

then goes on to say:

Giuliani said terrorists “hate us and not because of anything bad we have done; it has nothing to do with Israel and Palestine. They hate us for the freedoms we have and the freedoms we want to share with the world.”

Yea right. They hate us for a freedom. I can't believe I'm seeing this crap again from a presidential candidate.

What a dork.

Sources of Morality

I've had this conversation with some people and I think I posted about it a few times. Basically where does morality come from? Is it always based in religion or something else? Is our basis of law based in religion? Etc.

Well, I was poking around and came across a transcript of a debate between a well known atheist and a well known pastor. Some really good questions are presented from both sides and it is really a fascinating conversation.

In any case, regarding the topic of this post, I'm going to link to page 4 of the transcript where they are talking about morality and it's source. Check it out and, if you are really bored, read the whole thing! :)
