GALLUP POLL REVEALS THE PUBLIC HAS LOST CONFIDENCE IN THE MEDIA

The plunge in numbers has been downward since 2000. Surprise. Surprise. Lack of news coverage is why I became a blogger - LS

From Editor & Publisher

LOSS OF CONFIDENCE

"MEET TEAM DELAY, TAMMANY FALL"

This is the most comprehensive analysis I've seen written recently on Tom DeLay. The author reveals how DeLay has amassed enormous power and influence on the lobbyist groups in Washington, mostly by bullying and intimidation. For example, Delay would threaten and badger companies not only to REPLACE Democrat with Republican staff members, but the R replacements HAD to be DELAY'S staff members. If lobbying firms would not comply with Tyrant DeLay's wishes, he would retaliate, for example, by holding up bills whose passage was important to a non-cooperative firm.

Aren't you proud of your elected official, Sugarland? (SL, DeLay's district, is a suburb of Houston and this comment is directed to its major who wrote an article in support of DeLay in the Houston Chronicle yesterday, not that the mayor would read this blog.) LS

The article can be found on The New Republic on line. You will have to register to read the article, but there is no cost involved and it takes only a minute or two.

MORE ON THE DOWNING STREET MEMO
Britain Ministers warned in 2002 of EXCUSE for War with Iraq

Found on the UK Times on line from a blogger for the AfterDowningStreet.org

Excerpt:

MINISTERS were warned in July 2002 that Britain was committed to taking part in an American-led invasion of Iraq and they had no choice but to find a way of making it legal.

The warning, in a leaked Cabinet Office briefing paper, said Tony Blair had already agreed to back military action to get rid of Saddam Hussein at a summit at the Texas ranch of President George W Bush three months earlier.
