If you’re not outraged February 21, 2007

…you’re paying too much attention to Britney Spears or Anna Nicole Smith. From rollingstone.com:

Here’s the thing about the system of news coverage we have today. If
the Walton family, or Lee Raymond, or the heirs to the Mars fortune
actually needed the news media to work better than it does now, believe
me, it would work better. But they have no such need, because the
system is working just fine for them as is. The people it’s failing are
the rest of us, and most of the rest of us, apparently, would rather
sniff Anna Nicole Smith’s corpse or watch Britney Spears hump a fire
hydrant than find out what our tax dollars are actually paying for.

Shit, when you think about it that way, why not steal from us? People that dumb don’t deserve to have money.

    Great article & well-worth the read. It’s sickening. To think that oil tycoons’ tax breaks offset funding cuts to the programs that help needy people pay for heating oil…for shame.
