An excerpt from a longer post about the press, generic cialis remedy the Democrats and the housing crisis by Orson Scott Card:

This was a Congress-caused crisis, viagra beginning during the Clinton administration, stuff with Democrats leading the way into the crisis and blocking every effort to get out of it in a timely fashion.

If you at our local daily newspaper continue to let Americans believe – and vote as if – President Bush and the Republicans caused the crisis, then you are joining in that lie.

If you do not tell the truth about the Democrats – including Barack Obama – and do so with the same energy you would use if the miscreants were Republicans – then you are not journalists by any standard.

You’re just the public relations machine of the Democratic Party, and it’s time you were all fired and real journalists brought in, so that we can actually have a daily newspaper in our city.

    Where to begin. Riiiiiight… the crisis was caused by all those poor people, not the rich people selling bags of risk! Republicans did no wrong, Democrats did all the wrong, but Orson calls himself a Democrat! And he hates gay people. And thinks Fox News is great, but he wants a real newspaper, too. Poor Orson is so conflicted.

    I don’t think anyone is saying it’s the poor people’s fault, John.

    The claim is that the Democrats hold way more responsibility than the press is holding them accountable for because they encouraged lax lending practices and prevented Fannie Mae from being reigned in.

    Personally, I think there’s plenty of blame to go around. But his post does go along with my current dominant thesis that the press is not doing their job. Hell, even Dan Rather said so.

    The press hasn’t been doing their job for at least eight years. If they were, there would be no Bush43, and sure as heck wouldn’t be a war in Iraq (at least not caused by us).
