Those Damned Leftists are on the Move!

Crooks & Liars has video of Fox Faux reporter, Griff Jenkins, attempting to get some kind of a story out of a protest in Denver, sponsored by Recreate 68.   Nicole Belle writes:  “…..out amongst the riff-raff to ask them if they believe in freedom (of speech).  Dude, they’re protesting.  That IS exercising their freedom of speech. ”

Exactly.  Refusing to answering the idiotic questions of some jackass reporter isn’t about freedom of speech.   The boy needs some lessons in civics. The pure expression of freedom of speech is mightily expressed in their protest.

The question: Do you believe in freedom of speech?  The response:   “Fuck corporate media.

I especially like the chant – Fuck Fox News!  Fuck Fox News!  There’s another video of Jenkins being confronted by a bunch of guys who tell him it’s about corporate media (Rupert Murdoch), corporate greed (Haliburton) all the lies, cover-ups – but that’s not news.  It’s the cursing…..  then the chant goes up: “Fox is Slander”  and is disgraceful.

For variety, here’s the scoop from the USA-Today team in Denver complete with a tad bit of audio for ambiance, and Al-Jazeera’s take on the anti-war protestors.


Final Day of Beijing Olympics

Over the past few weeks, I’ve caught some parts of the Olympics.   I’ve not made a point of watching them.

The women’s softball team from the USA played Japan for the gold medal and lost.   I thought this picture too celebratory to not share.

Japanese coach Haruka Saito was thrown into the air after the game on Thursday.
