You know, it's funny you should mention that. Back on May 1, I got an e-mail from an accquaintance of mine which said:
The fabulous Caroline Casey has great astrological news. Whenever Saturn enters Cancer - which it does this June 2nd,- the current resident of The White House is outta there within eight months!!!!! It happened to FDR - he died. Nixon - he fled and now to Shrub who, according to his personal astrology, will experience character assasination & disgrace this July or August!
At the time, I just laughed and decided I'd save the e-mail and send it back to him in 8 months. Now, I'm starting to wonder.
An excerpt from the article:
Why the sudden shift in the U.S. media, from unabashed war boosterism to increasing skepticism?
The answer is simple: the continued killing of American troops.
For the first time since at least 9/11, the dynamic of the corporate media business is working against Bush's interests. Top management at the media conglomerates may still have a strong political affinity for the Bush administration, with its anti-regulation ideology and its general pro-business, pro-rich policies, but dead soldiers make great news, and the news business lives and dies on ratings and circulation.
Viewers and readers eat up stories about innocent, dedicated young soldiers getting killed in the line of duty, particularly by nefarious guerrillas who shoot and run instead of standing and fighting so they can be wasted for their crimes. We are hooked on these stories because they get us angry--first of course at those who are doing the killing, but before too long, also at those in power who are putting our "boys" in harm's way.
Add to that the growing awareness that the reasons for sending American troops into Iraq were bogus in the first place, and you quickly shift to a broad opposition to administration policy.
All this could happen--indeed is happening--very rapidly. First the media has to tip from support for the war to opposition. That appears to be happening already. Then the public will begin to tip, from support for the war and for the Bush administration, to public sentiment in favor of bringing the troops home and for punishing Bush for sending them there in the first place.
There's much more in the article and it gives you something to think about.
