ok, but it was actualy in the news. lol
It could've gone to "Bias In The News" also...

I was sitting here for over a minute wondering if it was in the right place...

Yes, I understand "Today's News" could be argued, but the hurricane has its own thread, so we would have the same subject in two different places...

Since Olbermann's thrust was the hurricane, I decided to throw it in here...:2wave:

I must say I rather enjoyed that.
What was his point in all the diatribe? Other than a lot of misplaced hyperbole and emotional injected nonsense.

To Obermann: DUH!

Actually alot of what he said was garbage and totally misinformed. He like many reporters are still under the impression that FEMA is a first responder and that state and local give way to the Fed's in a disaster.

Let's just hope we do a real investigation of this instead of just "moving on".
What we need is a joint Congressional/Executive branch investigation. Those doing the investigation should be answerable to the voters. What we don't need is another sham like the 9/11 commission. If that is what we get I certainly expect the Democrats to put Landrieu and Blanco on it.

Yep! This was the first big test of the DHS and it failed miserably. Terrorists wont show up radar.
