Have people seen this? How badly do we need an indymedia weekly in this town, huh??? As if endorsing a man with a criminal record widely denounced as a Nazi at the head of a cult of college kiddies (who are often convinced that they should quit college and serve Larouche lest they learn something), in the same issue Tak compares a disgruntled letter-writer to "the blacks" who use their past as an excusse for why they aren't succeeding now. And justifies his own prejudice against asians who don't know the language of their ancestors by saying "discrimination exists, get over it."
On Friday I received a phone call from a good friend who works at CBS - I've known her for years and she is a Producer for some of the news programs, one well known one in particular. She tipped me off that the news media is in a "lock-down" and that there is to be no TV coverage of the real problems with voting on Nov. 2nd. She said similar "lock-down orders" had come down last year after the invasion of Iraq, but this is far worse - far scarier.
