[Real Talk] Fuck Journalists

I guess it's fashionable for journalists to tell the truth right now. Weird. As a blogger it is my civic and MORAL OBLIGATION to keep it real in times of war. So to jump all over this "McClellan Tell-All Exposes Media's Propaganda Problem" this is my official response:

Journalistic integrity?

Really? Fuck off..

Fuck you Scott McClellan.

Fuck you in your fucking face.

And just for good measure:
Fuck you Anderson Coooper and ALL OF THE VANDERBILTS!!!

PS -- to make this post music related:

I went to two shows last night. My friend Janna Blue's friend Ava who incidentally, has hosted a radio show, Severe Exposure, on KPSU (portland's college radio, 1450am/www.kpsu.org) for five years, was DJing at Ground Kontrol (it was free game night and Janna and I rocked the Simpsons pinball for a good 20 games) and it was the bomb. And then we went to Holocene and I tranced out for an hour... I have no idea who the DJ's were... but it was fun.

PPPS -- if you believe in signing online petitions this one might help with the whole "try to regulate the industrial war complex propaganda machine also known as the media" thing:

PPPPS --
CNN's Jessica Yellin revealed that news executives at MSNBC actively pushed her not to do hard-hitting pieces on the administration during the run up to the war in Iraq:

Maria! (sorry i suck at calling you back today.... i will check in tomorrow) OH MY GOD TOTALLY! That conference is gonna kick ASS!!!

I FORGOT TO SAY:

Ava played WONDERFUL MUSIC, it fit perfectly for playing video games and then dancing while you waiting for your turn. She is also a writer for the Mercury... I think she writes the section about electronic music. Her skills make me happy.

What's your deal with Anderson Cooper? He was my man during Katrina! Told it like it was....And he's handsome. Like Brokaw.

Yeah, McClellan can suck it. I knew it was BS from my basement in Vancouver. Was he really so fooled in the White House? I don't think so. I hate to agree with Bob Dole but.....$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

deadherozone -- Anderson Cooper is old money. Do I trust that he is giving me the truth, whole truth and nothing but the truth? No. If you are on CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc. you are being censored and getting paid a ton of money to lie. I used to love me some AC but now I just can't take any of them seriously...
