Republicans Hijack Public Broadcasting

After the 2002 Mid-Term elections with the Republicans taking control of the House of Representatives, the United States Senate, the Presidency and the Supreme Court, Moyers sounded a warning to America:
That mandate includes the power of the state to force pregnant women to give up control over their own lives.And the Republicans have never forgotten. Even though everything Bill Moyers warned about is coming to pass!
It includes using the taxing power to transfer wealth from working people to the rich.
It includes giving corporations a free hand to eviscerate the environment and control the regulatory agencies meant to hold them accountable.
And it includes secrecy on a scale you cannot imagine. Above all, it means judges with a political agenda appointed for life. If you liked the Supreme Court that put George W. Bush in the White House, you will swoon over what's coming.
And if you like God in government, get ready for the Rapture. These folks don't even mind you referring to the GOP as the party of God. Why else would the new House Majority Leader say that the Almighty is using him to promote 'a Biblical worldview' in American politics?
Read here about how the Republican Chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting is now advancing his conservative agenda. Kenneth Tomlinson "who has close ties to Karl Rove" advances the right-wing on the last bastion of independent journalism.
And read here from Media Matters about how even the New York Times failed to get the entire Republican trail.
Read it and weep.
America needs Bill Moyers without being censored. We need an America where dissent is tolerated and respected. We need an America that isn't led by an Administration that attacks Public Broadcasting while defiling the First Amendment with manufactured news. We need an America where the President is available for Press Conferences and only real reporters are allowed in the White House Press Pool.
America deserves better! John Kerry, America is Calling!
