Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

What Liberal Media?

Of televised news programs in the US only MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann and Lou Dobbs Tonight have bothered to report that the non-partisan American Bar Association conducted a study and released a report and testified before congress that President Bush is violating the US Constitution by his signing statements (more than 800 bills) in which he said he may violate them if he decides to. President Bush has claimed that some of these laws he thought were unconstitutional, but if that were the case he is duty bound by his oath of office to veto them and inform Congress of what needs to be changed to make them constitutional. He has not fulfilled his duty and instead has declared himself and his administration above the law more than 800 times. The Constitution requires that he enforce all laws passed by Congress and signed into law, but he is reserving the right to ignore that duty for more than 800 laws he himself signed into law. ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News, CNN (except for Lou Dobbs Tonight) and MSNBC (except for Countdown with Keith Olbermann) have not bothered to inform the American people about this. Several newspapers have reported this (with the exception of the LA Times which has not), but few Americans get their news from newspapers. So TV news is their only source. And if they didn’t happen to watch the episode of Lou Dobbs or the episodes of Countdown that reported this Americans were uninformed that their president is violating the Constitution placing himself above the law almost a thousand times in his five and a half years in office.

We need to contact ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News, CNN and MSNBC and demand that they cover this issue. Also thank CNN for Lou Dobbs covering it and thank MSNBC for Keith Olbermann covering it.
