Holy shit! Nice list!

I'd like to see supporters of this war come up with a comparable list of links.

It would read:
Fox News . . . Fox News . . . whitehouse.gov . . .Fox News . . . USA Today . . . whitehouse.gov . . . Fox News . . .

You get the idea.

If we can get supporters of the war to learn how to click on links, that is. :wink:

So, the thing about that list is.. notice, it includes no links to such "radical" sites as commondreams, indymedia, etc...  The bulk of those links are to relatively conservative websites so the war mongers cant blast away at the "liberal leftist news sources".. altho, Im sure they will find a way.


Heh, you should see the rest of the links that werent included  :wink:

Although I'm sure I'm going to hear grief from somebody for making this a sticky post, I would be more than happy to post a list of Right Wing websites if anyone cares to compile one.

Einstein said it best.

After Einstein had fled from Hitler's Germany, one hundred Nazi professors published a book condemning his theory of relativity. "If I were wrong," Einstein said in his defence, "one professor would have been enough."
