Who's in charge here? It's all screwed up.

Doonesbury has been running a fab story this week, about a press conference held by "Fear itself".
Who else could tell you that since 9/11 (3,000 dead) the US has seen 150,000 citizens killed in gun-related fatalities, and 200,000 on the road at the same time as asking why the US hasn't spent $3 trillion in a War On Guns & Cars, (and simultaneously make it funny)?
Plus we've had a wierd UK non-news story about the BNP members caught with a shed-load of chemical explosives that didn't make it on to the front page of ANYWHERE. OK except The Burnley Citizen report and in Pendle Today (a case of 'is it becaue I ain't muslim?')
Strange, but seen before? In the US in 2003: http://www.thebulletin.org/article.php?art_ofn=nd04reynolds
and 2002:http://www.newsmax.com/archives/articles/2002/3/13/160941.shtml

So is this indicative of a society whose priorities are really screwed, or one where we're actually all muslim haters, or just that the media should be ashamed of themselves. It is disgusting enough watching 'free' government acting in the interest of corporations and 'benefactors' but when all you have left is the 'free' media and even they won't run it because it won't sell...
Frankly I'm a little discouraged.

There's a very mild & understanding piece here in Asians in Media about how the story got buried.
