How long have we in the blogosphere been saying all of these things? We made all the connections, we checked all the facts against previous statements and came to the same conclusions.
And who listened?
We were preaching to the choir. The MSM - for the most part - continued to parrot BushCo. or to ignore the story completely. Giving us, instead, non-stop Britney and American Idol. Or Dr. Phil. Or whoever. The great unwashed masses continued to watch, to shop and to keep their heads firmly in the sand.
If a free (and effective) press is vital to an informed electorate, we are well and truly screwed.
