Follow the Script Everyone

Ultimately the question of what happens to Karl Rove doesn't matter much. But, the question of what happened to journalism in this country has to be answered. The American people need to be shown the true face of the Republican's propaganda apparatus.

The Rove Affair may allow the press to actually find its voice and may allow the American public to see how the far right has successfully turned what was an independent and free press into a mouthpiece for a morally corrupt administration.

News Hounds, among many others, is helping point out the strings that connect the Right Wing puppet masters with their "talkers".

Anyone who still doubts the relationship between the Bush/Rove administration and the noisemakers at Fox, i.e. master and loudspeaker, needs to do some introspection on why they continue to support this blatant corruption and place party loyalty above love of country.
The News Hounds piece directs the reader to a Raw Story exclusive that includes a copy of the Right Wing talking points (seen above) that have been distributed to their loyal "talkers".

RAW STORY has obtained an exclusive copy of Republican talking points on Bush adviser Karl Rove's leaking the name of a CIA agent to a reporter, circulated by the Republican National Committee to "D.C. Talkers" in Washington.

Oliver Willis shows the loop between talking point and "talkers" being closed on the air at Fox by John Gibson.

FOX News anchor John Gibson just said onair that he thought Karl Rove deserves a medal if he outed Valerie Plame.
From Karl Rove's mouth to John Gibson's in just a few hours. Efficient.
