Unfortunately, NBC lost it’s membership card and thinks it’s their job to protect Bush’s precious little feelings from people who don’t like him or his anti-democracy policies. On Thursday, Variety reported that NCB won’t air a commercial for the new Dixie Chicks documentary because the spots are, get this, “disparaging to President Bush.”
Watch the trailer for “Shut Up and Sing.” This movie could prove to be a strong statement for freedom of speech at a time when we desperately need one.
You know, the more I think about NBC’s censorship of opinions unfavorable to Bush, I’m increasingly stunned and, amazingly, still a bit flabbergasted by the insulting notion that we have a “liberal media.” Not even close. Perhaps, in some far-flung locale in a progressive state, there are “liberal” reporters. Perhaps.
The vast majority of the media business is a profit-driven enterprise. Until we eliminate profit as the main motivating factor behind business decisions, concepts like fairness, truth and accuracy will always get side-swiped in the stampede of greed.
PS. Oh, just to lighten things up, you MUST also watch Bush talk about his friend “Dave,” a candidate who actually uses a different name, not at all like the one Bush used. Heh-heh. You wonder if people asked for their money back after Bush spoke.
