A new T.V is launched in Lexington and Louisville targeting Mitch McConnell stand on the war in Iraq, it has 10 and 12 year olds dressed in fatigues doing jumping jacks, push-ups and other military exercises. It also shows where Mitch voted against bringing the troops home six times and voted to 'waste' $450 billion dollars not on health care or education, but on an endless civil war which has had Iraq in it's grip since February of last year. According to McConnell's chief of staff he is waiting on the report due out this month by the commander in Iraq and you have read as well as I the 'leaked' information concerning this and only a couple of the benchmarks have been met and to what degree that is remains a mystery. This war has been going on for years now and no one is going to go over there a few months and give us any assessment of what is going on, if Iraq is making such progress why isn't the media over there covering stories? just days ago a plane carrying lawmakers from Iraq had to dodge RPG's being fired from the ground at them.

    Media power is truly growing exponentially. And hopefully that will remind the people what the administration has said and how long it has been. If we're lucky...

    Hello my friend, the media does play quite a role in our lives and like you I hope that America receives most of the story and not just bits and pieces. It is an uphill battle with the Iraq thing and it would be a little better if the media actually went over there and covered this story instead of relying on it second hand.

  1. The Media are being walked to where the Military wants them to go. When the troops are killed or a plane crash, those stories are covered. For whatever reason they are buried somewhere on page six or seven, in small writing.

    Mitch McConnell is just a Senator from Kentucky, who became a yes man to everything, that Bush said to do. He is just one of many yes men, who has to go, if possible.
