9/11 and the Myth of the Liberal Media

Well the cons are at it again, re-writing history. They revised the history of the Great Depression, the Cold War, Ronald Reagan,etc.. and now they are promoting more LIES about 9/11. Of course, it was the Democrats fault, Bill Clinton and his administration are to blame. They were soft on terrorism, they had several chances to take out Osama bin Laden and failed, etc. It's all over right-wing talk radio.. and the ABC miniseries "The Path to 9/11"--another example of the right-wing bias of the U.S. media. We all know that the "liberal media" mantra of the right is a lie, and they know it. They have scared the media into bending over backward to counter the liberal media claim by promoting the right-wing conservative views and shows. Right-wingers dominate every major cable news program and channel. There are very few "liberals" and NO left-wing progressive voices on any TV network news program. "The Path to 9/11" is just another brick in the wall, they neo-fascist takeover of the U.S. media. The mainstream media was, in fact, complicit in selling the Bush Lies to justify the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq, and they continue to promote the lies about the "war on terror" and linking it to the Iraq occupation.
The TRUTH about 9/11, as presented in Fahrenheit 9/11, is that it was BUSH and his incompetent administration that failed to protect the American people from terrorism. It's laid out even in the 9/11 Commission reports, the Bush administration FAILED to act when warned in advance of the terrorist plots. Dick Cheney's terrorism task force did not even meet! Condi Rice handed Bush the information about terrorists planning to fly planes into buildings, and he ignored that. And when the terrorists hit on 9/11, he sat in an elementary school classroom reading My Pet Goat. And since 9/11 Bush has used the "war on terror" as a justification for illegal military action, usurping more and more UNCONSTITUTIONAL executive powers, and has weakened the constitutional protections for U.S. citizens.
When will the U.S. media, the American people and the Democratic Party wake up and defend the American people and the U.S. Constitution from this neo-fascist administration??? There is hope for the later two, but the media seems to still be under the control of the neo-facists.
I'm sick and angry at anyone who still supports the neo-fascist Republican Party, it is a party based on LIES. It is a FASCIST party that promotes theocracy, corporatism, militarism and threatens the constitutional foundation of American democracy.
