Justin Elliott, ProPublica: ''The corporate owners or sister companies of some of the biggest names in journalism, NBC News, ABC News, Fox News, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Politico, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and dozens of local TV news outlets, are lobbying against a Federal Communications Commission measure that would require broadcasters to post political ad data on the Internet.''

Costs and consequences of action against Iran

Campaign For Liberty
by Michelle Newby

04/19/12

Wars cost money. So do airstrikes. Just how much can be difficult to calculate, because it depends on unknown factors like the length of the conflict, the resources needed to prosecute it, and the skill of our opponent. Recent history demonstrates the folly of assuming a war will be quick and cheap. The 2003 U.S. war against Iraq was originally projected to cost $50 to $60 billion. Yet, in 2008, before the war was even over, the Pentagon had already spent $600 billion...

Ron Paul: Romney ''could stumble''

The Raw Story

04/23/12

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul on Monday said he would continue his run for office even if presumptive nominee Mitt Romney acquires enough delegates to clinch the nomination. In an interview on CNBC, the Texas congressman was asked if he could still get enough delegates to win the nomination even though he is trailing Romney, 685 to 63. 'Theoretically you can,' Paul insisted. 'It?s not likely, but you can t ever tell. Nobody knew Santorum was going to drop out. ... But only about a little over half the votes have been counted'...

Maddow: ''I think Ron Paul just won Iowa''

The Raw Story

04/24/12

On Monday night s The Rachel Maddow Show, MSNBC s liberal politics host examined the strange Republican primaries of Iowa and Minnesota, concluding that Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) has actually won both states, or at least tied for first place. 'Perhaps the most off-script thing that has happened on the Republican side ... Is that I think Ron Paul has just won Iowa,' Maddow said, referencing the badly mangled January primary election. 'Uh, seriously. This weekend'...

Is America a free country?

Antiwar.com
by Justin Raimondo

04/23/12

All modern dictatorships employ the same method of limited freedom in certain realms, expanding and contracting the parameters of the permissible according to the tactical advantage of the moment, and yet always upholding the first principle of any and all tyrannies: that the government grants such 'rights' as 'free speech' and 'free assembly' at its sole discretion. Which means they can be rescinded at a moment s notice. This state of conditional freedom that allows these governments to maintain the official fiction they are 'liberal' democracies...
