03/08/2003 Entry: "What do Rather, Brokaw, Jennings and Koppel have to lose by speaking out?"

"What do Rather, NBC's Tom Brokaw, ABC's Peter Jennings and Ted Koppel, even PBS's Bill Moyers, have to lose? All are millionaires. Rather is 71 years old; Brokaw, 63; Jennings, 64; Koppel, 63, and Moyers, 68.

"Is seeing their mugs on the tube more important than saving the country from the machinations of those who are destroying it? What do they think would happen if they put their heads together and on the same night went on the air and laid the truth before the American people?

"At the worst, they would be unemployed and Jennings might even be deported to Canada. If suddenly finding themselves idle isn't their cuppa, there are many of us publishing and broadcasting on the Web who would welcome their help.

"Are these men less courageous than Edward R. Murrow, who exposed Senator Joseph McCarthy for what he was; than Walter Cronkite who, after going to Vietnam for a first-hand look, turned on the war and thus ended Lyndon Johnson's aspirations for a second term as president; than Helen Thomas who refuses to be bowed by the Bushistas?"
Oops journalism, by By Bev Conover, Online Journal

Yeah, I can see a cub reporter being intimidated by the bush junta (bj?), but these old guys? They ought to bash those bastards with their shows and their canes and walkers.

Helen Thomas is 82 and has covered the White House since Kennedy. The bj is a sad way for this fine lady to end her wonderful career, but at least she'll fight them to the bitter end. If I live to be 300, I will never have such guts. I think the only right thing is to impeach bush and let her cover that. I think that would be fitting.

This blog entry has been brought to you by the unpacking recovery program and now, back to the nightmare.
