Bush vs. Daily Show and The Onion: the competition for the best fake news

Bush has been giving us more fake news than the Daily Show. (Fake News Timeline)

Yesterday the Commerce Committee, was supposed to vote on the "Truth in Broadcasting Act of 2005." As of this morning I still haven't been able to find out how that vote went.

The bill would crack down on the creation of "video news releases" that have been distributed by the Bush Administration to local news stations and then presented to the public as unbiased journalism.

Many senators are still undecided, and a strong vote from the Commerce Committee could convince the Senate to pass this bill quickly.

Let's hope.

Keep on this one, and contact Congress on your own to urge support for this bill. It is the truth we're after, and who is afraid of the truth but a liar?

Anyone who doesn't support this bill is only trying to protect their ability to lie.

Why the heck would you want to do that? And why would the Bush Administration, who pledged to bring honor and dignity back to the White House, give this bill anything but its full support?

Yeah, and Dan Rather's career came to a screeching halt because of it. Last I checked..that Ass Hat was still in office. Just wrote Tancredo Archie. (Yes THAT whack job is actually my rep!) Thanks for the 411.
Oh and Vet? What is your agenda anyway. Your clearly so inbred you are going to support this President no matter what. Your such a "good german". Why are you haunting THIS site. Do you think that between me and Archie and his readers and our umpteen degrees you will dumb us down? The man writes blogs complete with FOOTNOTES for God's sake. From what do you formulate your ignorant opinions? The back side of your ass?

Rhonda, you, me and VET might just be the only readers of this site.

At least Vet leaves comments.

I get so lonely...I'm like an inmate praying his personals ad gets a response.

I'm glad to have both of you.

PS-Rhonda. Yes I am supporting him no matter what just like you want to bring him down no matter what.
We all don't have to agree with you,do we? By the way you'd better up that dosage of Xanax.
