The New York Times: Shill for Bush

According to the New York Times, only "troublemakers" oppose the Bush administration. In an article entitled, "FBI Goes Knocking for Political Troublemakers" the Times tells an important story. The FBI has been questioning and in some cases subpoenaing anti-war and anti-Bush activists. Those questioned don't know why Ashcroft has singled them out. Of course we know the real reason. It is to keep us quiet and complacent.

Why are people who have neither been charged nor convicted of committing any crime labeled "troublemakers" by a supposedly credible news source? At any rate, communicate your displeasure to the Times public editor at

Not only is the Times doing Ashcroft's job for him, but they don't even tell us what we need to know about law enforcement. As of today we have the right to remain silent. One should never, and I repeat never, talk to law enforcement without having an attorney present. You don't have to let them into your home unless they have a warrant, and you still don't have to speak to them. Maybe someday the Times will give us some news that is fit to print.
