Chicago Tribune Admits Patriotic Rallies Bigger Than Appeasement Protests
From the establishment media's astonishing lack of coverage of the patriotic rallies and obsessive devotion to the appeasement demonstrations, you can't prove whether they're biased or just inexcusably ignorant. Now the Chicago Tribune has inadvertantly admitted they do know what's going on but just don't feel like covering the news.
'Some of the biggest rallies this month have endorsed President Bush's strategy against Saddam Hussein, and the common thread linking most of them is Clear Channel Worldwide Inc., the nation's largest owner of radio stations,' the Tribune complained Thursday.
'In a move that has raised eyebrows in some legal and journalistic circles, Clear Channel radio stations in Atlanta, Cleveland, San Antonio, Cincinnati and other cities have sponsored rallies attended by up to 20,000 people. The events have served as a loud rebuttal to the more numerous but generally smaller anti-war rallies.'
Check out what's going on here. The only reason the Tribune can stomach admitting the popularity of the patriotic gatherings is to criticize Clear Channel. Otherwise there'd be no mention that the pro-U.S. rallies of up to 20,000 people dwarfed the smaller appeasement demonstrations.
And why does the Tribune fail to raise its eyebrows over who's backing the appeasement rallies? After NewsMax helped break the story of the movement's Marxist backers, Fox News Channel confirmed this with its own report. Why won't the Tribune, New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, etc. admit this reality?

A tid bit for you neo-conservatives
I should let you know that there was anti-anti-war rally south of here. About 15,000 folks showed up. It was on CNN.
See I can be nice but just remember I don't swing both ways. I mostly hang out just left of middle. I do vote for one Repulican because he is worthy of everyone's vote. Senator Lugar!!!!!!

I am glad to see that you support Senator Lugar. I wish he would have considered another run for the presidency. I am not a Republican and did not vote for Bush in the last election. I have been sufficiently impressed with Bush's performance and integrity that I consider myself a supporter of his now.

I wish Lugar would run for another presidency. He is one of the most decent politicans out there. He never bad mouths anyone. He sticks to the issues. I have great respect for him. When I moved to Indy he was the mayor. He turned that city around. He set the course and got the ball rolling. Indy is a clean metropolitan city. A wonderful place to visit.
OK if you're not Republican what are you?
I give Bush some credit for how he handled 9/11 and respect his efforts there. I really just don't click with his personality...he always seems a bit snappish. I don't think he has made the best decisions for economic growth and education. I'd like to see some attention spent on health care industry. Insurance companies are out of control. Our economy was on a slide before 9/11 but it has been a landslide since.
Actually Bush senior did set in motion an econmic recovery after Reagon. Because of his efforts Clinton was able to make great strides. Young Bush is following a similar course as Reagon....yikes.

I am an independent conservative. Believe me, I could go on forever on the issue of health care and politics. I have a feeling that we agree on a number of such issues. I feel like that I have had to choose the lessor of two evils when it comes to healthcare issues.
I do feel that it would be selfish if my vote was determined soley or predominantly by my positions on politics related to my own industry.
There are issues that are particularly timely and important. Now, military and security issues are critical and am in agreement with Bush on most of those issues.

I have always been a big fan of Senator Pete Dominichi R-NM. People like him still give me faith in government.

I would love a Lugar-Dominichi Team!!
Re: anti-ant-war ralliesmarie on 3/24/03 at 08:17 (114146)
Wow that would be a team I'd vote for in a heartbeat.
