A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

I wouldn't be surprised if we continue to aid opposition groups, and maybe even destabilize the country. But I basically think that the outlook looks very positive for Chávez.

Ilona Meagher Is Taking a Stand for Our Vets

A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

I'm not going to wait for President Bush to discuss this issue, or to come on TV and have a public service push to support our troops and military families who are dealing with re-integration problems. I don't think that's ever going to happen. I wish it would, but you do see now that both sides of the aisle are now looking at the issue. And they have to make changes and look at it seriously, because their constituents aren't going to tolerate anything less.

Politics has always been about fantasy. Politics, at its core, is about imagining what sort of a future world we want, or a past world we'd like to go back to.

The fundamental goal is to create uncompromising, viewer-funded world news -- video-based world news. We think the big gap in the media landscape is for independent, video-based, daily news service. And by independent, we mean no government funding, no corporate funding, and no advertising.

My belief is that the person in the street, the person who tunes in to TV, needs to be more critical, needs to ask questions, needs to demand answers, and should be willing to shut off Chris Matthews unless he starts doing his job for the public and not for General Electric.

A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

The Bush-Cheney situation right now is like this: They've gone to Vegas. Their stake was $200,000. They're down $300,000. If they get up and they leave the table, everyone knows they went to Vegas, lost their shirt, plus some more. If they stay there and keep betting, one of two things is going to happen. Either a miracle is going to occur, and somehow they'll suddenly win the war, or there will be a new election and they will be magically whisked away from their seats. Somebody else will be sitting there and become responsible for the losses.

The playing field has never, ever, ever, ever been level between right wing and liberal. The genius of Limbaugh was not Limbaugh, it was Roger Ailes. ... the person who comes up with the best marketing idea is the person who usually comes up with the winner, not the person who comes up with the best product. Right-wing talk radio is not a good product. It's toxic. It's destructive. It's negative. But it had behind it a marketing genius, Roger Ailes.

The point is, we're all in the boat together. It doesn't matter if you're progressive or conservative, a Republican or a Democrat. The boat has serious holes in it. The boat is sinking. We have got to figure out how to work together to mend that, before more disasters happen and before more of our rights are stripped away.

Whenever a virulent form of any religion has engaged the machinery of the state -– and by that, I’m talking about the armed forces, where the sticks and stones are that break our bones -- we end up with oceans and oceans of blood. And it’s happening again now.

Generally human nature is that you don't want to be angry all the time, or depressed. In a way, that's on our side. That's the only power we have -- the power to mock them, which means you're taking the power back. You're not letting them make you afraid and depressed. A lot of people say it's the only way you can deal with what's happened to this country over the last however-many-years that Bush has been in, because it is depressing, and it is horrible.
