A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL
October Was a Record Month of Readership for BuzzFlash.com
More than 2.8 million reader sessions were recorded on BuzzFlash.com last month (that's readers; the hits are a higher number). That's a record for BuzzFlash -- and good news for countering the Republican dominated media that continues to prop up a man whose only excuse for failure-after-failure seems to be, "God made me do it!"
We don't consider ourselves an "Anti-Bush" site. We are a pro-democracy site, committed to truth, justice and the American way. At this point in time, however, Bush is trampling on all four of these ideals, so he gets a lot of space on BuzzFlash.
We are proud of our readers, proud to be part of a vibrant group of Internet news sites that champion democracy, proud to make our daily contribution to providing news, commentary and editorials seen through the prism of Americans who cherish liberty, freedom and the concept of one-person, one-vote.
As we grow, we promise that we will continue to carry a lantern shedding light on the truth and to continue fighting like a junkyard dog. If this were 1776, we would be standing with the Minute Men at Concord, fighting off the Tories.
It is 2003, and we have a Tory party who seized power and wrapped itself in a disguise of cultural populism and demagogic tax cuts. Then it slathered on several layers of fear, claiming that only the Tory party could protect Americans from all the evils lurking "out there in the world." The Tories in the White House adapted propaganda strategies honed by the Soviets and Goebbels and broadcast them through an "amen choir" media.
BuzzFlash will be here long after the leaders of the Tory Party are gone from power -- and hopefully imprisoned. It will be here because we didn't come into existence to battle Bush. We created BuzzFlash to stand up for America. And that requires vigilance, no matter who is in power.
BuzzFlash is what it is today because of our readers, who contribute so much to the site in their writings, feedback and financial support.
BuzzFlash is more than just a news and commentary site. It is a community of patriots.
