A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

Even among the ravenous pack of moguls and mediacrats that dominate and control our mediaocracy, Conrad Black was in a class of his own when it came to arrogance, chutzpah, and criminal activity. He was, in effect, a media gangster.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

"My understanding is at this juncture they're going to take August off ... White House press secretary Tony Snow said. "You know, it's 130 degrees in Baghdad in August," he said, sympathetically." The Iraqis are simply following the George Bush vacation model to mirror their governmental vacation practice! And Tony Snow can do nothing more than to support their undertaking, anything less would certainly be a criticism of Bush! It's always been a question of wondering what horrors do American soldiers have to suffer in Iraq in August while George Bush has been languishing down on the ranch? Where were Repuglican sympathies then??? It's absurd that the most well rested, in bed by 10 every night moron in chief takes a month off down home every year!!!

For those tracking the long train of abuses and usurpations of a modern-day George who would be King and his eminence grise behind the throne, July 14 has a resonance far beyond the fireworks of Bastille Day. Four loosely related events on that same day four years ago throw revealing light on key ingredients of the debacle in Iraq.

Tony Snow Ends Week With Another Magic Word After Being Asked If White House Is Out Of Touch

He called a reporter a "defeatist"
Does that sound desperate? And how!
Perhaps next week his response
Will be, "Defeatist, don't fail me now!"

BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

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.
