My email to Tim Russert of NBC’s Meet the Press

Dear Mr. Russert and Producers of Meet the Press:

With John McCain and Joe Lieberman as your guests on this Sunday’s Meet the Press, you have proven just how completely out of touch you are with the American public. And, this is on the heels of a monumental repudiation of the Republican party and a nationwide victory by Democrats.

Why wasn’t Nancy Pelosi on your show? Harry Reid? Russ Feingold? John Conyers? The voters of America have spoken loud and clear. The leadership of President Bush and the Republicans in both the House and Senate has been rejected. The Democrats now hold power in the Capitol, but you refuse to accept the fact.

As an independent journalist and free American citizen, I find your choice of guests wholly reprehensible and completely irresponsible. John McCain, his policies and his positions, are, for the most part, irrelevant. He has "stayed the course" with the War in Iraq, has allowed the congress to shirk their oversight duties for the past six years, yet you find him worthy of your air time. Are you completely insane or just plain stupid?

McCain’s views have been shown to be on the wrong side of public opinion over and over and over again. While most people want troops removed from Iraq, McCain wants to send more. While the American public wants John Bolton removed from the UN, McCain thinks he should be confirmed.

As for Joe Lieberman, all I can say is this is a feeble attempt by you and your producers to portray him as a power broker and a leader in the Senate because of his "unique" independent (helped by the Republicans) win in Connecticut. This is unbelievable hubris and totally misguided. Nobody in the vast spaces of America cares about Joe Lieberman except supporters of the Israeli lobby. It’s time the news media awaken to the fact that most Americans do not support the policies of Israel and do not want to be bound to their every action. Wake up!

As for Lieberman’s power, your theory is rubbish. He’ll be forced into line with the Democrats or will be roundly repudiated, just like the Republicans.

I would hope that you would change your policies regarding guests on your show and present opinions more in line with the views of the American public in the future, though, if you choose not to, I cannot complain, as this only creates more opportunity for me and other independent journalists.

When Donald Rumsfeld, George Tenet, Alberto Gonzalez and other top administration officials are about to be charged with war crimes in Germany, you fail to even acknowledge the story. And you dare call yourself a journalist. You are nothing more than a paid toady for the party that has just lost power. Stay that way if you wish, but the American public has moved on. Apparently, you have not.

I trust you and your producers pay attention to viewership because while I will not tune you out, I will continue to loudly criticize every guest you have on your show that does not represent the will and wishes of the American public. You’re starting out after this election at 0 for 2. Good luck in the future. I am posting this letter on my website and other public opinion sites, and sending a copy to Media Matters for America.

Apparently, even though the Democrats won the vote on November 7, you’ve shown that they must continue to be vigilant because you and other members of the mainstream media have not yet gotten the message. If you wish to be fully discredited in the eyes of the American public, continue on your present course. However, if you would like to restore some of the credibility you’ve already lost, I suggest you review your policies and politics concerning your on-air guests.

Good day,

Rick Gagliano, Publisher Downtown Magazine http://www.dtmagazine.com

How exactly did Lieberman win TWO elections and his two opponents got exactly the SAME number of votes at exactly 448,077 votes each time?!?!

It’s called hacking. As a matter of fact, if there wasn’t a massive, record breaking voter turnout last Tuesday, the Repukables would have still won. But Karl Rove & his company of democracy-killing hackers can only hack into 5% of the total number of e-votes, enough to save Lieberman, but not enough to continue their hold on power.

One of the first priorities of this Dimocratic Congress should be the return of the paper ballot, and the repeal of all e-voting laws.
When I see that this has been done, we can call our country a true Republic again.

As for Tim Russert and the rest of those wealthy whores which our treacherous mass media mistakenly call ’journalists’, they can all take a flying leap into the nearest cess-pool and quietly drown in the sewage they apparently love so much.

Boycott the US mass media, people, that is if you cherish your mental health.
We don’t need them, but they most certainly need us for their economic survival.
When was the last time these media whorehouses got it right, anyway?
The US mass media remains nothing but a very expensive cheer-leading squad for the neocons and their bogus ’War on Terror’, and that hasn’t changed even after this historic election.

Why should anyone waste their precious time viewing and listening to neocon mouth pieces who in reality are nothing but propaganda whores? Why waste your precious time listening to ’news’ stories with the truth gutted out of each and every one of them?

Every time I read some ’news’ story from CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, I invariably run Google searches of the same story, only to find out that so much of the hard facts have been removed.

Their editing and presentation of so many important stories of our recent past, such as the Downing Street memo, the false claims of WMD discoveries in Iraq, their failure to report on the rampant corruption by White House favored multi-nationals such as Halliburton, as well as their continously warm appraisals of the disastrous US occupation of Iraq, amounts to sheer propaganda, and these disgusting whores know it.

These ’news outlets’ are obsolete anyway as well as being congenitally dishonest. The worldwide net is far more capable of broadcasting the news with far more honesty and greater reliability, and these whores know it. Let’s make it a quick and merciful death to the lot of them, by boycotting them and eliminating their lies & their noise pollution from our lives forever.

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream
Friday 24 January

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
