Actress Ellen Barkin recently told the Los Angeles Times that the Tea Party is a very very bad thing.
And that Fox News lies to promote.
Tea Party values.
Okay and this market is entitled her opinion even though she did not give the newspaper.
Any examples of lies and the times -- dot challenger.

They are not entitled to do that.
It is long past time for we the people to stop ignoring the tremendous decline in the American Media.
We have garbage 24/7 on television we have outrageously harmful things on the Internet.
And we have a system whereby famous people cannot sue because they are public figures.
