Someone we need to influence.Submitted by MudClock on Mon, 03/12/2012 - 08:44
I am a former liberal who was very much influenced by Amy Goodman on Democracy Now, I understand she has a lot of influence over the Left. Many of my liberal friends get most of their news from her and believe she is a beacon of truth. Her 'War and Peace report' is a daily web/radio/tv show dedicated to war and peace, broadcasting on over 1000 stations yet she rarely if ever portrays Ron Paul in a positive light. Infact she usually goes out of her way to dismiss Paul and his anti-war views. Today on her program she showed complicity in the Virgin Islands blackout. She didn't even mention the March on the Whitehouse last month. I urge everyone to spend a minute and send her a message demanding she report fairly on Ron and to give him the credit he deserves especially for his anti-war position, here:
here as some articles supporting my theory:
Amy plays a large role in influencing progressives and we need her on our side, or at least to report fairly.
Having been educated by her for the last 8 years I have/had a great deal of respect for her. But her dismissal of Paul feels like she is cheating on me, and I find it hard to trust her now... it's upsetting, but enlightening
Does anyone else watch Democracy Now? Do you feel the same way as I do?
