We all know we were being lied to by the press

But some in the press still don't get it... like Anderson "Tool Shed" Cooper.

Why does Anderson Cooper sound so surprised? It's not like he wasn't likely pushed the same way by CNN executives. Either that, or he was willful about his "blowing sunshine up our asses" reporting that helped lead us into Iraq.

The only thing shocking about the revelations in Scott McClellan's new book is that the press are the ones who seem surprised that Bush and Rove and the rest of BushCo have been lying to us. Big fat fucking DUH!

It doesn't take a leap of imagination to understand why certain corporate executives would take advantage of the madness - or dare I say sickness - that infected this country after 9/11, and drive us into another war. When you consider that NBC is owned by GE, and GE makes A LOT of military equipment (and medical equipment too), why wouldn't they push for war? War means bigger sales and contracts of that military equipment. Maimed and dismembered soldiers mean more chances for medical equipment sales, or more importantly, R & D on equipment in development.

Follow that same logic as it applies to other media outlets controlled by big corporations with a vested interest in military or medical equipment. Take a look at who sits on the corporate boards of media outlets and corporations with ties to the military here:

If there was any true justice in the world, the American media would be tried for war crimes along with the Bushies. Alas, 'tis only a dream.
