Mike Whitney: Katie Couric's Big Day

A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
by Mike Whitney

It's not surprising that CBS would hand over the Nightly News to talk-show chatterbox Katie Couric. After all, the networks care less about propping up their shaky credibility than they do about winning the ratings game. That's why they nabbed America's sweetheart to replace the "oh-too-liberal" Dan Rather. She'll keep the viewers glued to their Lay-Z-Boys while the news jumps from the carnage in Baghdad to 5 minutes of selling erectile dysfunction drugs to flaccid American males.

None But the Brave

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

It’s a testament to the cynical -- but tragically realistic – faith that Karl Rove has in television and the corporate media to transmit lies.

Indeed, just as Bush was hammering home the latest GOP propaganda mantra about Osama equaling Hitler, Bush’s main Islamic "ally" in the war on terrorism, Pakistan, was announcing that bin Laden could live in Pakistan "in peace."

This month began with 140,000 American troops in Iraq -- 13,000 more than in late July.

Almost 30 months have passed since Time magazine's mid-April 2004 cover story, "No Easy Options," reported that "foreign policy luminaries from both parties say a precipitous U.S. withdrawal would cripple American credibility, doom reform in the Arab world and turn Iraq into a playground for terrorists and the armies of neighboring states like Iran and Syria."

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Democratic leaders announced the release of a new report today, "The Neo Con: The Bush Defense Record by the Numbers." The study is touted as "an analysis of the data behind the Bush approach to national security" and demonstrates statistically how the Administration has bungled foreign policy, ultimately making the nation and the world less safe.

Stan Cox: 9/11 - Based on a True Story

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Stan Cox

In the past five years, much has been learned about the terrible events that unfolded on September 11, 2001. But even last year's long-anticipated National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (the "9/11 Commission") failed to provide a theory that explains them adequately.

Subject: Who are the Real Appeasers?

Hi BuzzFlash,

Who are the REAL APPEASERS?

Remind people how Ronald Reagan supplied the WMD to Saddam, which he used to kill the Kurds in the north. 

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

The Bush Administration released an updated version of its National Strategy for Combating Terrorism today. Predictably, it followed the pattern of praising Bush for doing a good job while still trying to scare us into thinking the only way to avoid imminent death is to cede him more power.
