Oh this pitiful, low down, excuse for a Congressmen! He only got elected because of his family name and he's soiled that very name even beyond the shame uncle Ted brought to the family. This little mealy mouth weasel showed his lack of spine by quitting Congress at the end of his term and now he dares to trashmouth Congress and the news media. Grow up Patty boy!

What a sick little "parasitic" culture we've become. Now we're defending the media? Its not about Kennedy, its what he said. Media is "Despicable", fact is there is no independent news source in this Republic. A corporate controlled, well scripted, media propaganda entertainment. Is what, this Republic is inundated with, a shameless pool of "deplorable" individuals pretending to be journalist. Systematically being feed identical, wired, "scripted" information is not journalism, that's "PROPAGANDA"!
A week, when 6% increase in citizens foreclosures,
where in Kansas City, MO 29 schools are closing with the loss of over 900 jobs affecting 61 districts & 1800 of our kids, a War resolution bill is discussed on the foll of the house. And the lead story on every major Media cartel network? the sexual exploits of Sen. Messa or Lindsey Lohan is suing someone, complete nonsense.
Time for a complete overhaul of the "clowns" reporting the non news propaganda. Exploiting our troops, and not telling the truth about Iraq & Afghanistan. That goes for the repulsive and reprehensible, Robin Meade's, Anderson Cooper, Bill O'Reilly, Chris Matthews, Kiran Chetry, Brit Hume, Keith Olbermann, Sean Hannity, Suzanne Malveaux, Joe Scarborough, Jack Cafferty,,,etc and all the other media whores pimped out by the corporatocracy. Committing treason against the people of this Republic.

I remember a few weeks ago turning on the ABC nightly news (national). I sat and listened through ten minutes of analasys of the Tiger Woods Press Conference. They then went to break and reported about the guy that flew into the IRS building for about 5 minutes, tops, and then went back into more Tiger news. I shook my head and thought come on America..........
