Overall, a fairly decent article. But, what about the little thing that China is still a totalartarian/police state? And will be till gosh knows when. The writer barely skims the surface on the that 'little' point.

A short, sweet opinoin piece from an excellent periodical. On a broader level, it shows once again just how simple-minded McCain has de-volved into. McCain and Bush can't even agree on Iraq anymore.

Considering the subject matter and the publication, it should've and could've been at least 3 times the length. Interesting, but not surprising, article though. Gosh, do you think that Charlie Gibson might report on something like this?!

An overall very good article. Worthy to be read and discussed. Now, if only we can get folks like Brian Williams and Charlie Gibson to report on they're shows articles like this, then maybe, just maybe....oh, never mind.

Excellent story that needs to be out and about in the public forum. Mr. Savage is probably the worst of the worst of the so-called 'shock-jocks'. The lovely and talented Glen Beck is another example. He's been saying thought-provocking crapola like that for years and, most of the time, getting away with it. If one is slightly-to-the-left of Attila The Hun, then he thinks you're the scum of the earth! A perfect example of a sociopath, a well paid one, but a sociopath nonetheless.

Good article, but not nearly long enough considering the subject matter. On a broader point, all of us, including NewsTrust, needs to remind our friends, family, comrades and, especially, the news media what a huge and obvious flip-flopper John McCain has evolved into since he started to run for prez. The so-called 'liberal' mainstream news media continues to treat McCain as the best thing to come down the pike since sliced bread!

John McCain, who thought and still thinks, that we should still be in Vietnam 'to finish the job'. Who, apparently, has no problem being in Iraq for the next 100 years no matter the money or blood. When is this country going to say 'enough is enough' to people like that? My only complaint with the article is that it's not nearly informative enough, or doesn't show the 'big picture'.

Yet another excellent article by Mr. Greenwald. Where, in God's green earth, are the Democrats and libertarian-leaning Repubublicans regarding this bill? Apparently, MIA as usual. This is a bill that China and the old USSR would have no problem with. Welcome to the [new] America!

As if we didn't more prove of this administration's blantant corruption, this article says it all. It's worthy of front page news, but of course, in this country it's not. If it doesn't concern Paris Hilton, or more recently Christie Brinkley, the mainstream news media doesn't show much interest. Again, excellent article!

As someone who's in his mid-50's, a Vietnam-era vet and a banker, I say this article and talking points is way past due. I am more than willingly to forgive Mr. McCain of whatever while being a POW. What I don't like about McCain, among other things, is him shoving his Vietnam vet status and his time in a POW camp down people's throats as the end all of everything. His holy-than-thou attitude towards Obama re: foreign policy and international terrorism. And yet again, we see the 'mainstream news media' treating McCain with kid gloves if ANYONE dares to question his foreign policy creditials. Just like they did with Bush up until 2 years ago. Hats off to Gen. Clark!

I half-way agree with Mr. Nolan, but on the flip-side do we not report on anymore high crimes and misdemeanors by this president and administration because they're on the way out, and what does it matter anymore? There were rumours flying 2 or 3 years ago that Bush and Rove were pulling this kinda crap and more than a few White House reporters were aware, or at least suspected, of it and said little or nothing. My point? It sure would be sweet if reporters would get off their fat, lazy asses and start doing they're job again! You know, like the good old days. Then we wouldn't to read about stuff like this 3 years late!

Yet another excellent article by Mr. Greenwald. As a Obama supporter, I was very disappointed. Indeed, there is no rhyme or reason for Obama to support this blatanly anti-democracy bill that gives Cheney/Bush almost everything they want on a silver platter! As far as Pelosi and Reid are concered, if I had the druthers, the power I would fire them so fast they're eyeballs would pop out of their pretty little heads. And yes, I'm still voting for Obama, he still head and shoulders above John McSame. But, I'm very disappointed.

A way too short and compact little article about hugely important issue that hardly anyone in the DC/New York axis is discussing openly: Did Bush and/or Cheney commit a impeachable offense? Many of us already know the answer to that question. A large majority of the general public either know or strongly suspect. As usual, the so-called talking heads on TV and radio continue to sweep it under the rug. Why?

An excellent article about the lovely and charming Keith Olbermann. Considering the many pundits that are now out and about on the right, and all too often-extreme right, cable and non-cable, radio, what have you, Olbermann is, indeed, a breath of fresh air and, dare I say, a knight in shining armor for the rest of us!

Considering the complex issue[s] at heart here, it was a fairly decent article. But, like others, I do wish the writers could've got into more. Overall, it was a basic, meat and potatoes piece about a mucho important subject matter. It also pointed out, not in a obvious way, just how pro-Executive branch, pro-imperial presidentacy that Roberts, Scalia and Thomas really are, especially with this president. They don't seem to be big fans of giving ANY rights whatsoever to POW's! Shades of China, indeed.

Short, but sweet article proving once again about the blantant political leanings of BushNews, aka FoxNews. If they were any more obvious they would need a baseball bat!

An excellent, well-resourced article that needs to be part of the public domain and debate going into the general election. And again, it's shows what an absolute and total fraud and fake that John McCain has become on nearly everything.

This is a civil-rights issue, and has always been a civil-rights issue from day one. We've let the extreme -right frame and dicate this issue since it came to the forefront. All rightous Americans of all political strips are to blame for that. This is NOT a states-right issue, like gun-rights. There should be a national, of federal, law stating all Americans be treated the same, which means the right to marry. It's basic civil -rights.

Excellent article! It presents the ugly, awful truth of not only Phil Gramm, but more importantly, John McCain and where he is really coming from, and it ain't pretty. The Usual Suspects are at play here: Phil Gramm, George Bush, Ken Lay, John McCain, Karl Rove, just to name a few. Some of the most blantly anti-democracy, anti-capitalism, pro-monopoly people and politicans in the country today behind the scenes and upfront are part and parcel of John McCain. He is no more of a so-called 'maverick' than Ken Lay was. The general public needs, more than ever before, to hear and read story's like this!

And yet again, it clearly shows just how out of touch Bush, McCain and the GOP are in understanding the basic psyche of their fellow Americans, not to mention the rest of the world, have evolved in the last few years.
