I just found out from a friend in Cincinnati that Jeep is running TV and radio ads refuting Romney's ad. I knew about the press releases from both Chrysler and GM, but not about the ads. My friend also said that no one is buying Romney's pitch anyway but the Jeep ads are still effective. She also added that last night every commercial break had 4, back-to-back Romney ads, at least 2 of which were from Crossroads.

I have a suggestion on how we can fix the News.

First, you allow all News organizations to get tax exempt status.

Second, the terms of that status is that you can not lie. You must be 100% truthful 100% of the time. If you make a mistake, you must correct it.

Third, once you sign up, you agree that if you violate the second rule, you can no longer use the word News in your name, even as an abbreviation, as well as having to pay taxes, and pay back taxes from the time you signed up.

You can call your self an opinion network, or an information network, but not News. This would apply to TV, Radio, Print, and Web.

Thom was talking the last few days about who answers poll calls... well I do. They only call in on my land line, not my cell, in my office, and when I see an 8xx number I figure it's a pollster. Oh boy! I can mislead and lie just like my alleged politcal hero Mitt Rawmoney! it's great fun to punk these folks. I sometimes tell them I'm bringing lots of folks to Romeny's "victory rally". Also a lie, but somehow don't feel bad about it. I do feel good that I might be part of the reason WIllard thinks he's going to win Colorado. I get a polling call every few days. They must have a list of people who will answer, I think, and they keep calling the same people. Which might be why the polls don't reflect any reality

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
