The Daily Dissent is kind enough to host the video and transcript.

Thanks Condi...

Can you say Propaganda?

It's hard to believe that we have to investigate things like this in our America.

These papers: Here, Here, Here, Here , and Here all have unsigned editorials that contain the following paragraph:

"One of the smartest things President Bush did to reduce recovery costs in the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita was to suspend Davis-Bacon Act rules in the hardest hit states. But Congress is frantically trying to overrule the president, which would add billions of dollars to the already staggering recovery costs. Amazing that newspapers from California, Colorado, Indiana and North Carolina could be channeling, simultaneously and in complete harmony, the Bush administration line for cutting wages for workers rebuilding the Gulf coast."
I find it pretty implausable that papers in California, Colorado, Indiana and North Carolina all could be channeling the Bush administration line for cutting wages for workers rebuilding the Gulf coast.

It looks like most of these papers running the editorials are own by the same company Freedom Communications Inc..

"We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the world - no longer a Government of free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men."
