Mosque at "Ground Zero"

Obama Put Social Security On The Table

Misstatements On Show

Mr Hartmann -

On Friday, August 20th you had Victoria Jones on your show and between the two of you two incorrect statements were made. During the conversation about Franklin Graham's statements about Islam one of the two of you said that Billy Graham was dead (I do not have the transcript so I do not have the exact wording). Billy Graham is still alive.

That is Thom Hartmann and Dylan Ratigan of MSNBC. Progressive voices in a controlled media. I have learned from these men how over the last decades corporations have outsourced blue and white collar jobs to the point that few are left. The middle class has been destroyed. America has been robbed, while the top 1% and the corporations have gotten fat. I have learned that today giant multinational corporations control America, including most of the Congress. Exxon's quarterly profits are immoral. Big Pharma is getting fat.
