Sick For Profit - "I Need A Bigger Mansion, No Doctor For YOU!!!"

Newsweek: The Five Biggest Lies in the Health Care Debate

Study Says World's Stocks Controlled by Select Few

You know how I keep giving you daily proof that the media isn't liberal? Here's your daily proof:

"Liberal" Washington Post shilling for Dick Cheney...again... Let me put it to you clearly: if you think the media is "liberal", you either haven't researched it, or you are an idiot who listens to Rush Limbaugh. If you do NOT think you're an idiot, please explain the daily proof I give you, that the media is NOT liberal. Who OWNS the Washington Post? Who OWNS ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN? Who OWNS Clear Channel? The OWNERS definitely aren't a "bunch of liberal"! If so, NAME THEM!!! Defending someone for clearly breaking the law and torturing, is NOT LIBERAL! But don't forget, Rush Limbaugh plays his "good cop/bad cop" part on behalf of the wealthy owners, and his job is to repeat over and over for them, "liberal media". What a scam! Starting Monday, this week on Rush Limbaugh: Rush does NOT talk about how the Washington Post continually defends Dick Cheney!!! .......explain this one:

"If anyone ever tells you that they don't understand what is meant by "stenography journalism" -- or ever insists that America is plagued by a Liberal Media -- you can show them this article from today's Washington Post and, by itself, it should clear up everything. The article's headline is "How a Detainee Became An Asset -- Sept. 11 Plotter Cooperated After Waterboarding" -- though an equally appropriate headline would be: "The Joys and Virtues of Torture -- how Dick Cheney Kept Us Safe."

Glenn Greenwald: The Washington Post's Cheney-ite defense of torture

EXTRA! Read all about it in the Washington Post: Torture worked; Cheney and torture practitioners vindicated; morale at CIA harmed. It seems coverage of the Bush administration’s “war on terror” has been put back on track by the editors of the Washington Post and their “sources,” who appear determined to highlight the supposed successes of waterboarding and other forms of torture.

Got Cheney's Attention

"Liberal Media" hires Bush's daughter on NBC; now they have almost the entire Bush & Cheney families on the "liberal media": Lynne Cheney, Dick Cheney, and Jenna Bush. Why aren't they hiring all the other Bush & Cheney kin??? Now, according to "conservatives", your personal affiliation affects your reporting. I suppose this is different!!! Because she's a Republican!!! Your personal affiliation will not affect your reporting...if you're a Republican!!! Next up: Meghann McCain joins "liberal" ABC as an unbiased reporter.....

Interview with David Neiwert author of "The Eliminationists: How Hate Talk Radicalized the American Right". The differences between leftwing rhetoric vs. rightwing rhetoric. The "hate speech" is unique to "the right". Those are the FACTS, and "the right" media figures don't like this subject.

Who's putting serial health care misinformers like Betsy McCaughey on the "fake liberal" TV news shows? She just resigned as a paid director of Cantel Medical Supplies company, right after Jon Stewart exposed what a LIAR SHILL she is!!! Betsy McCaughey "...the day after sparring with Jon Stewart — is 'resigning to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest during the national debate over healthcare reform.'" Avoiding any appearance of a conflict of interest??? It wasn't an appearance of a conflict of interest, it WAS a conflict of interest, on purpose by a medical company!!! How many times do they think we will believe that these people "just happen to" work for medical companies!!! Exposed by Jon Stewart, the ONLY person who didn't give her an unchallenged forum for her infomercial!!! But the BIGGER question is: WHO'S PUTTING THESE PEOPLE ON TV???

Does she need public dental care? The VERY RICH and RICHLY PAID by medical companies, Betsy "TV Shill" McCaughey, who doesn't need health care, but is doing her best to stop health care reform. Is it time to "eat the rich" yet? Think about this: she's on TV all the time, but they never told us she's a director of a medial supplies company AND THEN the same TV that parades her around doesn't tell us she was forced to resign because of the Jon Stewart interview!!! It's always been rich vs. poor.

Serial health care misinformer Betsy McCaughey continues to be paraded on the "liberal media", you know, the "liberal media" that's owned by 5 corporations that aren't liberal. How long are you going to fall for the sham "liberal media"? The "liberal media" speaks for the wealthy few, corporations, the military industrial complex, and politicians from both parties that speak for them. Check out the Betsy McCaughey health care serial media misinformer page. The video below, shows you what happens when corporate-paid shill liars get questioned by legit people, and aren't simply allowed a forum to spout lies unchallenged by anyone like a megaphone for the corporations that are paying them. That's why they want us to think the corporate TV media is liberal, so we don't ask questions like: "WHO IS BETSY MCCAUGHEY???" The real question is, "Who is putting these people on TV???" THEY are the real villains; the shills in front of the camera are a dime-a-dozen, the TV OWNERS will simply replace her now that she's been exposed:

When we Europeans – the British included – contemplate the battles President Obama must fight to reform the US health system, our first response tends to be disbelief.......

Teabaggers wouldn't DARE protest anything Obama's doing that's unconstitutional, if it's a continuation of something the Bush administration started - like domestic spying or torture or intrusion of privacy into your laptops...

McCarthy: We do NOT have Best Health Care Man Challenges Microphone Turned Off! Was this on TV? Of course not! They only show the anti-health care protesters on the "liberal media"! The daily proof that the media isn't liberal: it's owned by 5 corporations that aren't liberal. In the last video, REAL Americans fight back at a Town Hall meeting confrontation which I'm sure didn't make the corporate-owned "liberal media": Randall Terry is escorted out of a Town Hall meeting for disrputing it.

Sen Coburn Tells Women Crying Over Health Care "Govt Is Not The Answer"

Health insurance premiums have increased 119% over the last decade

Health reform built on private insurance isn’t working and can’t work; it costs too much and delivers too little. At present, bureaucracy consumes 31 percent of each healthcare dollar. The Connector - the new state agency created to broker coverage under the reform law - is adding another 4.5 percent to the already sky-high overhead charged by private insurers. Administrative costs at Blue Cross are nearly five times higher than Medicare’s and 11 times those in Canada’s single payer system. Single payer reform could save $7.7 billion annually on paperwork and insurance profits in Massachusetts, enough to cover all of the uninsured and to upgrade coverage for the rest of us.

Of course, single payer reform is anathema to the health insurance industry. But breaking their stranglehold on our health system and our politicians is the only way for health reform to get beyond square one………….

From "Death Panels" to "Death Books", what's next from the Republican Noise Machine?

Universal Health Care Message to Americans From Canadian Doctors & Health Care Experts

Joe Lieberman is so concerned about health care reform...but let's not do it!!!

Can we sue media (like Rush Limbaugh or even ABC), astroturfers like Freedom Works, or even politicians that are lying, misleading, or suppressing information to the public about health care, which can be directly attributed to stopping health coverage for this successful lawsuit against tobacco companies, who were sued for basically the same thing: lying, misinformation, suppression of information directly leading to the deaths of people???

Israeli Wiretappers, the NSA, and 9/11: Are Members of the U.S. Govt Being Blackmailed by Israel and Others via Wiretaps?

Is anyone more than a little curious about where the so-called “populist revolt” against the Obama administration’s health care proposals is coming from and who is paying for it? You know, the revolt where people scream and disrupt town hall meetings, brandish guns outside in the street, and label a public option that would help some of the 47 million without health insurance get treatment as “socialist”?

My question is where were these brave patriots hiding when the Bush administration launched massive undeclared wars against Iraq and Afghanistan? Where were they when the military/CIA torture and rendition scandals erupted? Where were they when the Bush and later the Obama administrations gave away several trillion dollars in government bailouts, guarantees, and commitments to the financiers who engineered the biggest heist of the people’s money in history?

The health care revolt stinks of hypocrisy, manipulation, and behind-the-scenes collusion between right-wing political groups and their financial backers. I haven’t yet figured out the paper trail, but I bet the financial sources are the same as, or very close to, the financial oligarchs who just finished ripping off our republic on such an unprecedented scale.

I think that many, if not most, of these protesters are cowards who only step forth when someone big, important, and powerful is signaling it’s okay and paying for it.

In fact I think the health care revolt is a staged distraction to divert attention away from the fact that the recession isn’t really ending, that jobs continue to disappear even as the stock market firms up, that worker purchasing power continues to drop, and that the plight of the poor, elderly, disenfranchised, and out of work gets worse every day.

Astroturf describes fake grassroots groups that are created and funded by corporations, political parties or industry trade associations to advance a political agenda.

Astroturf groups fighting media reform manufacture the impression of public opposition to issues like Net Neutrality to sway policy makers and the media. What these groups won't tell you is that they're bought and paid for by the phone and cable industry.

The phone and cable industries that control Internet access for 97 percent of Americans are spending tens of millions of dollars on more than 500 Washington lobbyists. Their mission is to consolidate industry control over the Internet, before the public (and public interest advocates like Free Press) gets a seat at the table.

TeaBaggers: You didn't get mad when…………….

Health care reform is now a private option: WHICH FOR PROFIT INSURANCE COMPANY DO YOU WANT? You have to choose. And you have to pay. If you have a low income, under HR3200 government will subsidize the private insurance companies and you will still have to pay premiums, co-pays and deductibles.

The Administration plan requires that everyone must have health insurance, so it is delivering tens of millions of new "customers" to the insurance companies. Health care? Not really. Insurance care! Absolutely. Cost controls? No chance.

You will next hear talk about "co-ops." The truth is that insurance company campaign contributions have co-opted the public interest...Dennis Kucinich: HEALTH CARE WANTED: DEAD OR ALIVE. The masquerade is over! The "public option" is ... dead.
