I'm sitting in my work, but my heart and energy is with all of those who are exercising their civic rights. THIS USURPER SHOULD NEVER HAVE GOTTEN IN TO THE POSTION OF POWER. It is time for us to remind the governement who is paying their $150,000 plus annual wages! TAKE BACK THE GOVERNMENT! Keep making mainstream media acknowledge our outrage. Peace.

"Portland Media Lies!" 21.Aug.2003 13:12


Great job of using the TeeVee media whores!! One of KATU's more bimboesque chatterboxes was trying to exaggerate the "chaos" caused by anarchists burning a flag. The video itself showed there was clearly no chaos, but it didn't keep Ms Hairspray from gasping on like a grade school baby; probably hadn't ever been in a crowd of people before, aside from Costco. Eventually a pushing match broke out, maybe all of 30-45 seconds worth, and this reporter just about pees herself! "I've just been assaulted! The cameraman just got assaulted! I'm in the middle of a HUGE fight" she squeeled! Our group (here at work) were howling -even the conservative guy was laughing at her stupidity!

But the best part, is that as soon as she started hyping up the otherwise peaceful crowd, some guy started chanting "Portland media lies! Portland media lies!" and channels 2's live feed broadcasted the whole hysterical thing as the chants completely drowned out Ms Hairspray! I almost wept with glee and pride!
