ADDICTED TO CONFLICT

I'm not sure who will be happy with this article:

Appears to be an accurate account of most of the meetings.
Insurance companies were behind much of the rancor. I wonder why.

I said so on numerous occasions. They the Right Wing criticized President Obama for being a community organizer but the Dick Armey, disgraced Rick Scott, who embezzled money from the hospital industry, theLewin group, United Healthcare, CFRF and Freedom Works-- in other words all were connected to big industry and took a page from the community organizer.The only difference is in my opinion the movement was spurred by lies and distortions in the name of Profit and no change for the people.

I used to make fun of tabloid news vs. real news. The line seems to be blurring more and more and it's very disturbing. My spin on the article is that sensationalism, regardless of where is comes from, sells news. And, when your news is delivered in sound bites, you only get the squeaky wheel part, not the whole picture.

Better. But consider the media cries of "incivility,"
and at the same time encourages incivility.


Hhhmmmm.

All under the umbrella of 'divide and conquer'
