A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

The very process of getting those subpoenas out there, getting witnesses out there, getting this evidence that we already have in the public record, into a hearing format, is essential. The more we can illuminate the truth, the more people are going to understand ... we have to have these hearings in Congress. That is what I’m advocating.

I think they elected him because they thought he’d be someone they could manipulate. But Bush genuinely feels like he was elected to govern. -- Jules Carlysle, Author of DUMBASS

There are probably twenty to twenty-five thousand armed mercenaries in Iraq now, a bigger force than any except the U.S. force, by the way. And there are no laws governing them, and nobody’s been arrested for anything. Either you have twenty to twenty-five thousand hired men with guns who are angels, or there’s a huge miscarriage of justice going on. -- Robert Greenwald, director, "Iraq for Sale"

We called our book Static based on the idea that ... we’re still getting ever more static from the corporate media veil of distortion, lies, omissions, half truths. We need a media that creates static of another kind -- what the dictionary defines as criticism, opposition, unwanted interference. We need a media that doesn’t cover for power, but covers power. We are the fourth estate. We’re not supposed to be for the state. -- Amy Goodman

One of my old friends who is an ex-Vietnam vet, a Navy pilot, said to me one night, “Whenever I get mad at the government, I go out and buy a gun.” And to me, that’s a form of mimicking political action. One is left only with a gun in one’s closet. One has not changed or affected the government at all. -- Joan Burbick

I’m tempted to say they’re [the Bush Administration and Republican Congress are] spending money now like drunken sailors, but that’s not true, because drunken sailors spend their own money. These people are spending our children's and our grandchildren’s money. That’s immoral and wrong and corrupt. -- Richard Viguerie, Father of the Conservative Direct Mail Fund-raising Machine

... a lot of individuals [in the Gulf states] who were very supportive initially of President Bush, started to say things to me like: it’s amazing you can pay so much money for a war. They didn't talk so much about how we could balance the budget, but that we were paying for a war, and we’re paying for things outside of the country, and not for things inside the country.

Why should we care about the fate of the middle class? The answer to that question is a very simple one. Without a middle class, you won’t have a democracy. If you look at history, you see that those times when countries have had emerging or established middle classes are the times that those countries have been the most democratic, the most peaceful, and have best fulfilled the promises of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And it’s the best thing literally for all life on earth.

I was lucky enough to have been inside a network program, managed by the top news division in television, NBC news, and I could see the corruption, the timidity, the news suppression day by day from the inside. It was something breathtaking to behold.
