I searched 3 online newspapers (CNN, MSNBC, and the NY Times) to find something on Wisconsin and Moore's speech. NOTHING! Moore was right in his speech about media - they are corrupted also. They are trying to silence us into complacency!

Instead you see headline after headline about the protests in the Middle East and in the USA the big thing is Charlie Sheen. Give me a Break!

One of the budget cuts is to Public Broadcast networks. Guess what - That is the only source that I have found in major media that has written something about it.

So let's make our voices heard. Visit NPR and let them know (just by reading their article) that we appreciate real news reporting.

WPR (Wisconsin Public Radio) has done a lot of coverage and they are about the best public radio stations in the country. As a bonus they stream online and have audio archives in case you miss a particular show. Smile

Here's the link for their webcast.

EDIT: Go to the "Ideas Network"

The only reference I found to Michael Moore being at the protest on CNN was an iReport.

Not So Candid Camera
Why conservatives are having mixed luck getting video of angry, violent liberals.

"FreedomWorks activists are on the ground in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Tennessee, and Utah "this weekend through the next two weeks," according to the group. They want to supplement the FlipCam videos they've already been getting. They want documentary evidence of union anger out there so powerful that the media can't avoid it."

Wisconsin Security Tight as Rhetoric Takes Inflammatory Turn

Michael Moore talking about Mubarak in his web site may have nothing to do with the Wisconsin protests.

"Comparisons to the unrest in Egypt, where hundreds died before Mubarak was forced out of office, continue. One website popped up labeling Walker as the "Mini-Mubarak." Filmmaker Michael Moore has several references to Mubarak on his website, which is largely devoted to covering the union protests."

Funny, I just made this comment on another thread before reading this here.

"There will come a time when the news outlets will not be able to force feed their propaganda any longer. Hope all those McMansions have some serious locks on their gates"

Critics say proposal amounts to tax increase for some families

"Gov. Scott Walker's proposed budget would reduce a tax credit program for many of the working poor by $41.3 million over two years - a change that critics say violates his pledge not to raise any taxes."

The Madison protests are being covered in Tehran? They have an interesting perspective on the subject. Does anyone have any thoughts on the quote below?

Thousands protest anti-labor bill in U.S.

"The U.S. mainstream media blackout is intended to minimize the number of protesters rallying against the anti-union bill in Wisconsin and ultimately devalue 'the people,' highlighted in the U.S. Constitution."

Yes, a reporter in Tehran Times spent the time to discover CNN's income from subscription rights in 2009 is $578.8 Million and Fox News made $569.5 Million. Thought the article was succinct, accurate, and fully informative. If I was a U.S. citizen living in Tehran needing "home news" I could safely say the Tehran Times did a better job than some of it's U.S. counterparts.

I've lived abroad and was always surprised at how much more informed I was about my own countries political activities when reading news reports published in MOST foreign newspapers. During the previous Presidential elections it was impossible to go to ANY restaurant without waitors or customers asking if we were American's and asking us our opinion of Presidential Candidates. It was this experience that helped me realize 1) how admired the U.S. is in most European countries 2) how deeply aware the Europeans are of our political process 3) their awareness that the U.S. "sets the bar" for global attitudes of democracy and what it means to be FREE. Sure there are some countries that openly hate the U.S. but when members of those countries entered into any dialogue we had in public places we were always surprised at how fast the others were in defending our country. I returned home with a deeper respect and dedication to politics after those broadening experiences.

March 6, 2011
Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore urged Wisconsin residents Saturday to fight against Republican efforts to strip most public workers of their collective bargaining rights, telling thousands of protesters that "Madison is only the beginning."

The crowd roared in approval as Moore implored demonstrators to keep up their struggle against Republican Gov. Scott Walker's legislation, saying they've galvanized the nation against the wealthy elite and comparing their fight to Egypt's revolt. He also thanked the 14 state Democratic senators who fled Wisconsin to block a vote on the bill, saying they'll go down in history books.

"We're going to do this together. Don't give up. Please don't give up," Moore told the protesters, who have swarmed the Capitol every day for close to three weeks.

Tosa town hall meeting packed with protesters, ends early

"Interruptions in the form of shouts and jeers were in response to the presence of state Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Wauwatosa) and her support of the bill, which would largely strip away the collective bargaining rights of public employees in Wisconsin."

From Tazzy's page, but should be mentioned in this thread as well.

Why Walker won't back down

"Anyone who thinks he will change his mind has another thing coming," said Milwaukee County Supervisor Joe Sanfelippo, a Walker ally during his tenure as county executive. "He ignores the polls and the protests and does what he thinks is right. And I can tell you, he will not give in."

Ohio House OKs collective bargaining limits
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/42347559/ns/us_news-life/

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Republican-led House
in the state of Ohio has voted to severely limit the collective
bargaining rights of 350,000 public workers, sending a bill that's
sparked weeks of pro-labor protests back to the state Senate.
Chants of "Shame on you!" from onlookers broke out immediately after
the full House approved the measure on a 53-44 vote. It was possible a
vote in the Republican-controlled Senate, which narrowly approved an
earlier version of the legislation, would soon follow.

About 150 protesters started to gather in the Senate chamber, singing "We shall not moved" and chanting "Power to the people!"

WISCONSIN SUPREME COURT ELECTION RESULTS
As of Wednesday, April 6, 2011 at 10:56 am CDT
Reporting 99%
Joanne Kloppenburg 739,574 50%
David Prosser 739,350 50%

Joanne is ahead by 224 votes!!

When a vote is so close there will be a recount. I read a Teapotty blog that was following the results. When Prosser was ahead they kept complaining 'The Demorats will force a recount.' Now that he's behind they're all saying 'We demand a recount!!' They're also saying the Dems will 'steal' the recount (that hasn't even taken place).

A Huffington Post blogger estimates about 555 votes are still outstanding from Jefferson County. Even if Prosser gets 58% of those votes.....Joanne would still be ahead by 134 votes.

This is my Happy dance!!

I hope Joanne keeps the win after the recount. It's been pretty tense here.

I was the first vote in my district yesterday and voted for her.

Tuesday's Supreme Court turnout in Wisconsin was off the charts



By Craig Gilbert of the Journal Sentinel


It’s not just the breathtaking closeness of a once sleepy state Supreme Court race that is testimony to the electoral impact of the state’s budget war.
It’s the truly remarkable number of people who went to the polls Tuesday.
The implications of that fact for the recall elections expected to occur this summer are pretty obvious.

Did you see Walker's response? If you look at the map, Kloppenburg won more than Madison and Milwaukee. I wish I lived in a part of the state that carried her, but unfortunately not.

Walker Blames Madison For Supreme Court Election

"Gov. Scott Walker said this afternoon that the spring election results show there are "two very different worlds in this state."

"You've got a world driven by Madison, and a world driven by everybody else out across the majority of the rest of the state of Wisconsin," Walker said at a press conference in the Capitol."

Walker says Supreme Court race not a referendum on his agenda
