Olbermann=Truth. Newsweek... not so much
The contrast couldn't be more shocking: 1) We have Keith Olbermann telling we the people the truth YET AGAIN (video link here and transcript here). This time Olbermann knocks the GOP/Fox News/ ABC-Disney lies and cowardice about Pres Clinton over 9/11 out of the ballpark... and then we have 2) NEWSWEEK, who is blatantly refusing to tell we the people in the US the truth... but allowing the truth to be told to the people in Europe, Asia, and Latin America about Afghanistan. I don't know about you, but I don't appreciate being treated like a child (and a tax-paying child at that) who can be lied to and have the truth withheld from them b/c the corporate whore media or my govt says so. But somehow, I imagine NewsWEAK can justify Annie Leibovitz’s life in pictures as infinitely more important to Americans than losing Afghanistan. Come on, people!
