Subject: Your NYT Editorial
One of the best things you have done. I was a Times subscriber/reader for fifty years and I finally cancelled my subscription a year ago. I put up with their attacks on Clinton and their caricatures of Gore, but when I saw that they were so soft on Bush, I finally gave up. Like Friedman, I am slow.
The bias in their reporting becomes so obvious when one watches C span and then reads the account of the speech in the paper.
I'm surprised that you didn't mention Elizabeth Bushmiller.
I read the Wall Street Journal. The editorial is execrable, but the body of the paper seems factual and balanced.
Subject: Bring um on!
All the intelligence leading up to 9/11 that was ignored by Bush, could he have had the attitude "BRING UM ON". Why hasn't people picked up on that famous line of his? HE SHOULD BE CALLED THE "BRING UM ON" PRESIDENT!
Subject: Class Action Suit against The New York Times
Thanks for your editorial calling for Regime Change at the NYTimes, which details the appalling journalistic standards of "America's Newspaper" that go beyond the continued employment of Judith Miller. I have been a Times subscriber since 1988 and I have a plan.
1. All subscribers should immediately cancel The New York Times until Miller is fired. Call 1-800-631-5000.
2. All subscribers should call Public Editor Daniel Okrent and demand reimbursement for the hundreds of newspapers they received that were full of lies and misinformation about Iraq & the imminent threat of WMD. Okrent's number is (212) 556-7652.
3. We need to file a Class Action Suit against the Times for the shoddy faulty product they sold to us. Hopefully, there is a lawyer who reads the BuzzFlash Mailbag to lead the charge. Even if we get no legal satisfaction, we must all contact the Times and inform the top management about the class action suit against them.
4. Email these people:

Subject: Why are we losing in Iraq
If ever there were a reason for our failure to generate acceptance on the part of the Iraqi, it appeared recently in Najaf. Here is an excerpt from CNN.com. We have not taken the time to understand the culture and don't really care about the people. The underlining is mine.
About 100 police officers arrived in Najaf on Saturday to help calm the Shiite Muslim holy city, which has been besieged by fighting between U.S. forces and a militia loyal to radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr.
But when coalition troops arrived the next day to begin the joint patrols, the Iraqis were gone. The Iraqis left their posts because they felt they received second-class treatment when they arrived from Baghdad, the American adviser said Monday.
The U.S. adviser said no sleeping arrangements had been made for the Iraqis, they had no personal gear for their duties or changes of clothes, and they were given military rations for meals that included pork. Muslims are forbidden to eat pork.
"They were not even given a mattress to sleep on," the adviser said. "The U.S. Army really dropped the ball here." U.S. military spokesman Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt acknowledged what he called "logistics problems," saying those would be straightened out quickly.
"We expect that over the next day or two after those arrangements are made they'll be down there," he said. "To suggest that they deserted is just not consistent with the facts."
Coalition officials said they eventually hope to turn over security in Najaf to Iraqi police, a measure called for by an agreement reached between al-Sadr and other Shiite leaders.
Subject: Right On!
I can't tell you how glad I was to see your editorial calling for a change of management at the NY Times! I had decided yesterday that I was going to email the Times first thing this AM and ask if they were also going to apologize for all the false and misleading stories about Bill Clinton and Al Gore, and about the paper's obvious bias in favor of Bush and the Republican Party. I also feel that one of the places where all of our mainstream media has let us down in the past is the takeover of the Republican Party by the religious right. This was adequately addressed only in publications from organizations such as Americans for Separation of Church and State, the various Humanist organizations, etc. I've been utterly amazed at all the people who still don't realize this.

Subject: The Liberal Label
I was struck by the fact that the Associated Press story you linked to about efforts to limit class action lawsuits referred to USAction as “a liberal, pro-consumer activist group”. In the same article, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce was also referenced, but was not referred to as a conservative, pro-corporate activist group. This begs the question, if reporting is to be balanced, shouldn’t each organization receive an equivalent label?
Of course, AP would probably defend the reporting by saying that USAction needed to be “identified”while the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is already well known to readers. I think a better explanation for the disparity in labeling is the fact that chambers of commerce enjoy a mythical reputation for doing good. And since chambers are by definition only engaged in activities that are positive for everyone, there’s no thought given to labeling them for what they really are.
The truth is, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other pro-corporate organizations are engaged in “activism”that would make a group like USAction look like amateurs. In addition, this activism has a decided conservative, pro-corporate bent that is hardly in the best interests of the average citizen. It is long past time we challenged the notion that chambers of commerce and similar business organizations are the benevolent organizations. It’s time to expose this myth.
Re: Regime Change at the NY Times
Hooray! Hooray for BuzzFlash for giving the best tongue-lashing to the NYT that I've read yet. Tell it like it is. I can always count on you. It's funny, but the day they came out with their mea culpa, or as some are calling it, sorta culpa, it made me even more pissed off at them. Just as you said, it's exactly like Rumsfeld "taking responsibility" and then having GWB and Cheney praise him. No one pays consequences. It's amazing (well, maybe not) that the media and the administration have the same modus operandi. And I'm so glad you went further than the WMDs and talked about the way they treated Clinton and Gore. After reading their apology, my first thought was - well how about apologizing to President Clinton and Candidate Al Gore for the trash job you did on them? It was inexcusable. And while they're apologizing, how about apologizing in advance to John Kerry for the way they will no doubt treat him from now until November. You are so right about the disdain they have showed toward Democratic candidates. I will never get over what they did to Al Gore. If that lame apology is the best the NYT can do, there's really no hope. You're right. We need regime changes all over the place.
We should watch them like hawks during the election season. We shouldn't stand for those same tactics from the 2000 or 2002 elections. Don't let them get away with anything. Write letters, letters and more letters.
As far as the NYT - I'll always have memories from childhood of my Dad yelling at me and my brothers for spreading the Sunday times all over the house. I grew up in one of those families that thought the NYT was the bible. Boy, Mom and Dad are rolling over in their graves.
Thanks again Buzz for that great editorial.

Subject: A Great Editorial
Your editorial about regime change at the NYTimes is exactly right. I get the headlines and some stories on line and have written to them until I'm blue in the face to try to get them to change their news stories. I guess the only way to get attention is to stop reading and subscribing to the paper. If we do, I don't think we will miss much.
And you are also right. the WP is not better, in fact it is worse. If we didn't have BuzzFlash, we would be really in the dark! Keep up the good work.

Subject: Knee Pads for the Media
Thank you for my daily dose of reality. I occasionally find myself in front of a TV screen, this morning watching the nitwit called the president "field questions" from the White House media crew. I can only take about one softball before I begin wondering if it wasn't Karl Rove who gave the so-called journalist the question being asked. The media has gone from watch dog to lap dog, and, understandably, there's no one to call them on it. Certainly, Michael Powell of FCC isn't going to complain. I would like to suggest that we take up a collection so that each member of the White House media crew can have a couple pair of knee pads for each session with the prez. And while we're at it, let's get some extra padded ones for Michael Powell, he's doing such a good "job."

Subject: Bush/Rumsfeld Insult to Veterans, Families
I was appalled to see Bush and Rumsfeld laughing and joking with each other during the somber ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery yesterday. This is a perfect example of why we need a president who can appreciate the gravity of his decisions.
Someone should use this video footage to make the point to the American public, and veterans in particular.
Well, it's not pretty, but since you asked.... here's a link to a photo taken of Bush when he had his "presidential boil." (His nose and cheeks look a little scraped, too -- who is pounding on this guy?)

Subject: Vote the Bush / Al Qaeda ticket in 2004 - Reason 1
I was reading 'Bush and Al-Qaeda: A Symbiotic Relationship' http://www.counterbias.com/041.html and 'Win-Win Spin-Spin' http://www.democraticunderground.com/articles/04/06/01_winspin.html after seeing them on BuzzFlash. These articles are both great at explaining the ‘joined-at-the-hip’relationship between Al Qaeda and George Bush. But, in the true spirit of blogging I'm going to regurgitate in my own words why I thing George Bush is the favorite son candidate of Al Qaeda in the coming election.
Reason number one, can anybody think of any other candidate who would start a war in the Middle East on false pretenses and turn a world sympathetic to the US after 9-11 into a world where almost everyone hates US Foreign Policy? And change sympathy even in many Moslem countries into widespread hatred of the US and fear of what the administration may do next in its 'crusade' (and I mean that word in the religious battle context that seems to be the administrations world view).
Al Qaeda would suffer a real drop in recruitment if Bush leaves office, so that's reason number ONE why Al Qaeda recommends you vote early and often for George Bush…

Subject: Bush's Press Conference
Bush is a bungling idiot. I am sorry, but that is exactly what he is. Today's press conference was a shameful display of this man's idiocy. Not only could he not complete a single sentence without losing his train of thought forcing him to stumble and stutter and then look down for a very long time at a script, he made absolutely no sense at all when he did finally complete his line. He said something about a free society without "recruitness of terrorism" and then he said either "hatred flies into a vacuum" or something about "hatred turning into a vacuum". My God! This man is pathetic. Why am I forced to have a stupid president? This man is barely educated!
With George W. Bush setting the precedent, incompetence should qualify as a high crime or misdemeanor and we should be able to Impeach his butt right back to Crawford! If they can Impeach a smart and highly effective president like Bill Clinton over a minor sexual indiscretion, then surely we can Impeach Bush for his stupidity!
Nancy Lynn Nagy (TN)
Many people have chimed on the possibility of a Kerry/McCain ticket. First of all, I feel that supporters of this idea are getting too excited about it and are going to be very let down, because McCain will NOT do it. I've watched him long enough to know what a "tease" he is, but a good person and Senator despite that. I've also noticed many of you are not thrilled with the idea, just as I'm not. To add to the list of reasons, consider this: suppose there's a 50/50 senate? Who breaks the tie? You got it - the conservative republican. I want a straight Democrat ticket. Frankly, I've had enough of the repugs. We've got good candidates. I don't believe for one minute that having a split ticket will turn our government into a love nest of bipartisanship. I fear it would make things even worse. Plus, it seems like we're begging. Pick a Democrat, Kerry!

Dear Buzz -- Just a couple of reactions to the news. Story says gas price increase causing elderly volunteers to quit delivering meals to the poor. I say just take a couple of those helicopters like they have in Iraq to and have them air lift in food for the oldies. .......... Next, the shot-up Iraq landscape looks like what our's will be when bush and his anti-environment goons get thru with it.............. And, how did the Saudi Arabian Kobar militant terrorist shoot-em-uppers escape? A guess -- the same way the 9-11 Saudi families got flown out of shut-down American airports............ Why did West Pointers applaud Rumsfeld?............... Rice says the new (target) Iraq leader is "independent MINDED". Not independent, mind you, but independent minded. She sounds more shakey than Janet Reno, and SHE had Parkinson's. And did a fine job, by the way. ................................Your "Bumbling Bush" photo commentator is on to something. This would make a superb ad. Billboards here are commented on. Something to the effect of "four more years of THIS?". This and locals printing Gore's speech and paying to insert in local newspapers. They DO mass mail jesus videos, don't they?
Subject: Padilla Issues
So let's see, RIGHT when the Justice Dept needs to make up for its disjointed and lackadaisical actions of the last week it suddenly releases all this mega-detailed info on Padilla's plans and history?
Did they just learn this stuff recently?
We all know that with the Constitutional issues surrounding his detention that have caused such a P.R. nightmare for the Administration (and with the Administration's proclivity to leak info when it suits them -classified or not) they would have had this out in a heartbeat before now to shut up critics like the ACLU.
Is anyone in the media going to raise the possibility that this stuff is bogus? CNN LOVES this kind of "news" and will "report" it like it's gospel.
Bush can frame this guy and we'll never know - unless he gets some kind of due process and transparency r.e. his case.

YOU ARE DROPPING THE BALL
Is it just me or for someone who is leading a successful guerrilla campaign against our forces like Zarqawi doesn't it seem like we are not really trying that hard to catch him? You hear a bit of talk but no details or updates like we should be getting for the leader of a rebel force fighting so well against our troops and killing HUNDREDS of people on both sides. You guys are REALLY dropping the ball on this when many say Zarqawi is actually dead and someone else is probably giving credit to Zarqawi for these numerous attacks. It has gotten to the point where it's like Bonnie and Clyde and banks, one gets robbed and the blame is automatically placed on them. IF Zarqawi is leading these attacks then priority #1A should be capturing him; if not then we are wasting one hell of a lot of time looking for the wrong man.
Liked your letter Steve Hass. More military should write - our boys overseas can't express their opinions. As a member of a military family, I have stopped flying my flag and will only do so the day George Bush is put out of office-- along with the rest of those neocons. You are right about the yellow ribbons, etc. I always felt yellow meant coward and could never understand why it was chosen ... oh, that's right = the song 'Tie a yellow ribbon around the old oak tree' - but that wasn't for a brave soldier, it was for a felon. We need to tell Kerry and the rest of the Democrats that they should be yelling about Bush's VETO of the one billion dollars voted for the Gulf war vets and about the memo they've passed among themselves calling for future additional cuts for these men that will be coming back wounded -- And, how about DeNiro getting 39 million dollars of the money earmarked for victims of the Towers so he can open a restaurant....why not let some of the victims open a restaurant. He's an actor not a cook....He should be ashamed.
Thanks once again for reminding me that I wasn't alone in my thinking! A grateful reader,
First off, I need to ask a question of any buzzers out there who might abuse themselves (like I do) when in my car, of listening to the gasbag, Limbaugh.
He was having another of his laughfests...and saying that at the speech at the VietNam Vets memorial on Monday...(I suppose, I missed all television) that someone came up to him, offered his hand and said, we are a group of veterans against Kerry. Then the man opened his jacket, and had on a "Hanoi John" tee shirt. According to Limbaugh, Kerry flipped the man a bird. Now, I would not blame him, but it is not his character...he is not that aggressive....has anyone else heard the story...or seen..or read anything about it??? I have not heard one thing on television or read a thing in the paper about it.
Now, on to the mailbag....To Leslie in Boston....I agree with you on Gore. He has every right to be furious and it was refreshing for me to see him raise his voice a little after what happened in 2000...all the right wing pundits says he has taken up where Howard Dean left off.....(yawn) to the pundits!!! (no sign of mental illness here...geez!!!!) To Steven Hess, Gulf war veteran...it is always good to hear from a person with experience...to reaffirm our thoughts, thank you for your service!
Arlene, the post about NORAD was frightening enough...We have heard these stories much since 911....there just has to be something strange about that!! Sharon Carlton.....thank you so much for your sweet thoughts about our anniversary. I do hope no one throws a kink into the trip...like turning the alert color up to puce or something else!
Robert Horey...You are so right about Ashcroft...and Hutchinson....As you likely already know, Asa Hutchinson may have been relected...I cannot remember...but, his brother Tim, a united states senator lost his reelection bid, because even when he was voting to impeach Bill Clinton.....he was having an affair with a young aide in his office....he was married and had two children...and later after the election was lost, he divorced said wife and married said young office aide.
If you have never noticed -- and Tim Robbins, the actor, once said on a Bill Maher show -- republicans divorce and marry the younger woman....Clinton and his wife worked it out and stayed together... The republican on the show was bashing Clinton so much that the much quieter Tim Robbins, was more or less, matter of fact. It has never ceased to amaze me how many republicans were found out at that time...and all had been worse than Clinton (by Larry Flynt, incidentally).
And, Andy Grainger and everyone who has provided info about the stolen gun from the hidey hole that Saddam was found in. It is a little sick that Bush cherishes it so much...a little scary. Anyway, does anyone remember in the beginning of the invasion into Iraq...the producer of Fox news, who was found to have stolen so much priceless art from one of the palaces....I saw this on the news one night and a reporter went to his home and faced him on it...but, of course the Foxy one, shut the door in his face...however, it was well reported who he was and what he had done.
The forwarded joke about the man across the street from the white house in 2005, was hilarious...i have heard that in many different ways...but, it is always the same in the end.
And to whomever it was who gave us the e-mail...url...blog..or whatever and the heads up for the new Larry Flynt book....I cannot wait to read it. I remember all the adulterers on the other side who were exposed by this man. And, many right wing nuts would say..."Oh, sure, Larry Flynt...do you actually believe him"? And I would say, "Absolutely, when he paid a huge amount of money for rock solid proof of what people were telling him!" He did not want lies....like we had been hearing for 10 years.
I have the book from that...and if you really want to know the soul of a man....when Bob Livingston's wife called him and begged him to not reveal the extent of Bob's indiscretions (Larry said, that he thought he was Don Juan) he told her he would not print it.....that is a democrat for you...when all the time Richard Mellon Scaife and Ted Olsen..were busy as fast as possible making up stories about Clinton...lets see, He was a major drug dealer....he was a murderer of at least 200 people (even those who died of cancer)... tell me how that is possible! And, even though the devious Kenneth Starr said in front of the panel...that nothing...NOTHING was found on this man except the fact of misleading of the panel -- who had no right anyway -- on the affair of Monica.
Good mailbag...as always.......Shirley.........St.Louis
Subject: Al Gore
I just read Al Gore's speech from about a week ago. What a mind! One thing I want in a president is someone who's smarter than me, and that was Al Gore, and Bill Clinton. It's so refreshing to read something quite intelligent (coming from Al Gore's own pen no doubt). However, what we're stuck with right now is a president who reads a 5 minute speech prepared by a speech writer who makes sure they keep out all the big words.

As soon as I heard a pundit tell me that Gore was "sick" and that this speech finished his political career, I knew this one was gonna be a doozie! The pundit went on to explain that prior to his being in the nooz bidness...he worked for political "theorists" like Newt Gingrich...as if we should suck AND swallow that! The fact that the moderator was on C-SPAN and that he agreed with the tenor of the pundit's unvarnished political needle-job shows how far this ship has drifted.
Gore must have really gotten under Mother neocon's hematomas this time.

Subject: Rhetoric vs. Reality in Iraq
A brief to these words from the "Rhetoric vs. Reality in Iraq" article in Christian Science Monitor:
" As EU Commissioner for External Affairs Chris Patten recently stated: 'Developing democracy is not like making instant coffee' - though in this case, it certainly looks as murky."
Or, to state this as a general proposition:
Instant Coffee is to Coffee as Bush-cartel-'democracy' is to Democracy.
On second thought, that's unfair to instant coffee, which, though never as good as the real thing, at least resembles it somewhat.
Dear Sgt. Haas,
I would like to thank you publicly and in front of the hundreds of thousands who read BuzzFlash daily for your Mailbag letter yesterday.
You are absolutely right in stating that the best way for us to honor our soldiers is to FIGHT ALONGSIDE THEM to restore and maintain the freedoms right here at home that they've fought and died for by VOTING this November.. We each have a very powerful weapon, and that is OUR VOTE. Each of us have the power to add our voice to the millions in this country and world-wide who say NO MORE to the despicable and non-stop march for oil and power epitomized by the Bush cartel and its minions.
I was CHEERING your letter out loud, and I sincerely hope and pray, JOHN KERRY, that you are reading BuzzFlash, because this forum represents the best of the American people and world citizens who care deeply about freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for ALL....Americans, Iraqi's, Afghans, Haitians, Cubans, North Koreans...EVERYONE.
This is OUR country, OUR world, and OUR CHILDREN and YOUR CHILDREN deserve a life of freedom, health and well-being. Bush and Co care nothing about human life anywhere on this planet. They have demonstrated it time and time again.
Thank you Sgt. Haas for your service to this country, and for adding your voice to the chorus of the millions of us who will vote this bastard out of office come November. You represent the true American patriot.
