MSM Ignores Voices Favoring Withdrawal

I have watched and listened to hours of commentary on the Iraq Study Group on TV and radio since yesterday and have not heard any of the broadcast networks, NPR or PBS gives so much as one minute of airtime to anyone advocating immediate withdrawal from Iraq.

As far as the mainstream media is concerned, these voices don't exist. Since most people derive what little information they get about current events from the MSM, they will never hear these voices.

I heard from Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Rep. Lynn Woolsey, Tom Hayden and others advocating immediate withdrawal on Amy Goodman's Democracy Now telecast (Link TV, Channel 375 on Direct TV) and on the 4 and 5 PM shows broadcast on KPFK 90.7 FM in Los Angeles. Kucinich and Rep. John Murtha are also being given a forum at The Huffington Post.

The ISG report is nothing more than a chew toy for politicians, pundits and columnists to occupy themselves with and with which to justify positions arrived at long ago.

We must start to pressure our elected representatives to defund this seemingly endless war. That's our only hope for getting out of Iraq.
