Interesting article.

But, isn't it common place to site where you got your facts? The author of this article did not. I searched the entire site to try and find out what truthout.com is all about and where they get their info, and all I found was they are run by 8 people and they need our donations. And, for your convinience you can donate through credit card right to their site!

So, I did a search over the internet and it seems there are as many people who are debunking truthout as there are politicians that truthout is blowing the wistle on. To me, it seems they are some kind of 'middle man' for Democratic or Green Party contributions...at least that is my feeling.

See this article if you want: http://www.flashpoints.net/truthout.html

I guess I need to know and trust an orgainzation before I blindly beleive what they tell me. Call me ignorant, but I do trust our government....at least so much as to make good decisions in our country's best interest. Sure, we may not always understand the in's and out's of WHY that decision, mostly in the interest of national security....but still, I trust them. I also trust the news media networks (like Fox News) who don't ask me for money!

Here is where the article was originally published. -

Truthout gets their articles from various media sources. When viewing any article at truthout there is a sentence-"go to original" at the top of the page. If you click on this you can see the original source.

Safemommy, truthout askes for $$ because it's self supporting, much like PBS. And, unlike Fox news...

Thanks for all the links supporting those statements...I didn't need really them, I knew about all the self-serving lies this sorry administration has shoved dow Americans' throat. But they are surely great to see!
