Corporate Right-wing Media - Daou Report: "What's the common thread running through the past half-decade of Bush's presidency? What's the nexus between the Swift-boating of Kerry, the Swift-boating of Murtha, and the guilt-by-association between Democrats and terrorists? Why has a seemingly endless string of administration scandals faded into oblivion? Why do Democrats keep losing elections? It's this: the traditional media, the trusted media, the 'neutral' media, have become the chief delivery mechanism of potent anti-Democratic and pro-Bush storylines. And the Democratic establishment appears to be either ignorant of this political quandary or unwilling to fight it."

As we wait thru scandal after scandal, disaster after catastrophe, for the political storm to sweep the Republicans away, either the nation is apathetic or the Media is totally right-wing. The people, who brought us 7 years of the totally bogus Whitewater scandal, cannot seem to get it up for corruption in the Iraq reconstruction, lobbying in Congress, Kartrina, whatever.
