A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Linda Milazzo

This afternoon I received an e-mail from Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy asking me to visit and sign a petition to remind Vice President Dick Cheney "that he can't ignore our nation's laws."

You may recall, and just as likely have seen,
This 2006 cable special on your TV screen:

"Night Of Too Many Stars" ran across the nation
"An Overbooked Event For Autism Education."

Jack Black, Steve Carell & Stephen Colbert
This trio of modern superstars were all there.

What they're basically saying is, "Knock this

A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

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.
