Bush's New Speechwriter


I recently found a newspaper clipping that I had saved, intending to do something with it sooner.
A brief snippit from the Philadelpha Inquirer, the title is:
"Bush picks editorialist to to be his top speechwriter"
"Bill McGurn, a former executive at Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. and chief editorial writer for the Wall Street Journal, has been named chief speechwriter for President Bush, the White House said."
This article demonstrates the connection between the media and the government. They are not seperate, they are one entity, working together in order to manufacture public opinion. If we are truly to be informed in the country, the current media establishment must be torn down and rebuilt on the values of truth, honesty and fairness, not comercially-owned, and not biased to cater to the interests of the status quo.
