The BBC reported that the Taliban went to Texas as guests of the folks who armed them, Unocal oil company. They then refused to allow a pipeline to Haliburton investments in the Caspian Sea which many believe gave Cheney motive to engage in helping 911 come to pass.
At least here in Vermont and on VPR , BBC dominates the liberal intellectuals listening programs . BBC is the prime source of news presented by them! It just seems strange to me ....NPR national public in the US adhering to a policy of seemingly anti US views! Check it out.
Liberal intellectuals listening program? What is that supposed to mean? I've heard people call NPR liberal in the past. That's ludicrous. I've never noticed them offering anything but unbiased news. I realize the main stream media infuses too much of their own politics into their programming, but I don't get that vibe from NPR.
I'll be honest with you. The only people who make that claim are usually right wingers who get fretted when everyone doesn't agree with them. You know the type. The ones who swallow Rush Limbaugh's tripe lock, stock and barrel.
I don't know any left wingers, but I know a lot of people in the middle who enjoy NPR news. Because they report the news. They aren't attempting to swing public opinion, they are attempting to inform.
The BBC I listen to is London based, with reporters in every country in the world, reports worldwide news often with opposing views by experts on both sides of the road to accompany anything controversial and has a reputation for being reliable.
Don't Americans know there is a world outside the USA?
Earnest , Ahhh but there is the crux of the problemo ! BBC isn't any more neutral than Fox or MSNBC ! In fact .....whats with those Brits ....BBC is like Vaudeville or something. Forgive my spelling but !
Cagsill ! Want to know a secret from ions ago ? Listen to all or as many of the outlets as possible and then ,and only then , make up your own mind! But I understand !......Thats very hard for a liberal intellectual to do ! You see, I came from the frame of mind that the only cool-aid was back in the day! Not from the P.C.mindset of today!
There are only 5 companies operating in the whole world, which controls the entire wheat supply? These 5 companies are owned and operated by the Upper 1% of the world's wealthiest.
So, there's no doubt about the media outlets.
If you're truly interested, check out my hub on "why is world peace not happening". You'll notice that poverty and homeless are getting worse and not better, because of the upper 1% of the world's wealthiest.
Cags, in the seventies I was reading a column in the newspaper of my choice! Telling me all about what was going to happen in the next twenty , thirty years in America ! Each day I looked to the wisdom of what just felt right in this column! Ronald Reagan was an oppinionist before a governor. When he first talked of leadership I though , Here is a "leader" . My point ;It was really "wierd" in the sixties and seventies! And yet though the mess of America then ! ? R .R . came across as a true American! We will survive this freaken' mess , but not until we ! We , the voting public take back this country , this constitution!
Ahh, and the crux of the problem , believe the older guys or not ? I comment you for thinking as you do ! I have read your posts many times. We , however learn from our elders , except now , here , in America ! There is a primetime mentality , politically , That says "Dont listen to anything anyone tells us " ! Cagsil , I appreciate your oppinion always . But we all have to drop the cool-aid drinking mentality of "anti" everything! American that is!
