I've been frustrated for a long time with the way the media portrays 9/11. The straw man argument is that it's a Republican controlled issue. The pundits have their script down cold as well. It then gets pushed along by the likes of Bienart, who writes garbage like this. (hat tip Atrios)

Peter Daou said this in an email: "Hammering home the false notion that the right has a monopoly on strength and patriotism is a cornerstone of rightwing strategy"

Which leads to advertisers doing this. I'm glad I was able to help change some of that perception and it all got sorted out.

Can you help us out?
