Why is it okay to grant amnesty to telecommunications companies, and the presidential administration working with them, but not to undocumented immigrants? With telecom amnesty, our spineless Congress is planning to reward years of illegal monitoring of American citizens through telephone, fax, and computer surveillance. You can see the whole sorry affair laid out, with a video of Sen. Chris Dodd breaking it all down right here.
Equally complicit in the Bush administration's continuous grab for power are the major news outlets: ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and Fox, I'm looking at you! If only we could tie this in to Britney Spears or Tom Cruise, maybe then this stuff would get the reporting it deserves!
