Funny you should mention DU. I work at a newspaper, in the IT department. I happened to be examining firewall logs today and noticed that someone in the newsroom was spending an inordinate amount of time reading and/or posting to DU.
I almost ignored that, because there was nothing unusual about it.
Nowhere in Rush's undeniable truths does he mention that the "old media" are the enemies of this country. He should.
I'm almost to the point where I'd rather say I'm a piano player in a Whore House than to admit that I'm in the media.
The only thing...IMHO...that allows me to look myself in the eye about meing in the news media is the fct that I wear an Army uniform. I have a vested interest in protecting the constitution and the part about "Freedom of the press".
