From BuzzFlash

If you have not read this afternoon's BuzzFlash read this:

So, Mr. And Ms. Mainstream Media, how much longer will you allow Karl to feed your fears and keep you under his thumb? -- A BuzzFlash Reader's Open Letter to the MSM


Dear Washington Press Corps and All Mainstream Media,

For five years Karl Rove has used and abused you; using you to spread his "talking points" (read: Propaganda), and abusing you by threatening your job, your family and your reputation if you don't comply with and promote the Party line. And for five years, you've enabled this sick relationship with your acquiescence. Most of the country has watched in horror as you slowly lost your self-respect, your integrity, and finally, any pretense of basic journalistic practices. Despite millions of emails, letters, faxes, phone calls and protests by concerned Americans begging you to report the truth about the war on Iraq, you instead marched in lockstep with the murderous Bush regime and actually promoted their lies. Your complicit actions have directly resulted in the slaughter of thousands of innocents in Iraq and around the world. Your lazy, sloppy non-reporting is your personal contribution to the deaths of American soldiers. You have blood on your hands. Oh, yes you do.

com·plic·it (k&m-'pli-s&t) adj.

Associated with or participating in a questionable act or a crime; having complicity: newspapers complicit with the propaganda arm of a dictatorship.

Read the rest here - could not have said it better myself!

Karl Rove is a disgusting world class douche bag, but what make you think he is in different than any other administration? That's a little naive, isn't it?
