My blogs haven’t been as frequent as when I first started. I think at some point, the more you know, the angrier you get. The angrier I got, the more defeated I felt as a civilian against “Big Brother”. Its like, how do they get away with this shi*? Why aren’t people taking to the streets? What happened to the days of Nam?
Last week, cozy on my couch, I decided to catch a little Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. I’ve been preparing to go back to school this week and have been missing the news along with all of my regularly scheduled programming lately. I have become accustomed to the Hollyweird driven divisive causing ad nausea looped skewed “news” Corporate owned stations have been trying to ram down my throat. It’s sad to say that I feel my only Cronkite honest news I get now a days are my podcasts of News Hour with Jim Lehrer, Bill Moyers Journal and The Daily Show But, I’m glad the channel surfing Gods led me to MSNBC and Maddow.
The opening story was in regards to Arizona’s recent passing of the SB 1070, the widely controversial anti-immigration law. After weeks and weeks of interminable coverage, only recently has the ball dropped on this blatantly obvious illegal conflict-of-interest law. Which, by the way, just proves my earlier point of the elementary level of “journalism” these so-called news shows vomit. The conflict of interest I am talking about is the unearthing of Ariz. Gov. Jan Brewer’s political advisors being lobbyist for CCA, the largest private corrections facilities in America. They own six facilities in Arizona alone.
