Green Day Hits CNN 'Nail on Head' [video]

i don't want to be an american (media) idiot

I was reading this thread at iWWP, and the first thing that popped into my head was, American Idiot, by Green Day. The song just seems to make sense on soooooo many levels today:

Why our european newspapers says nothing, and put the page "iran" after Clinton's wife that falls down and breaks an arm?? I WANT TO KNOW WHATS HAPPENING! Not hear about Berlusconi's girls. What is more important in information? The true news or the gossip?? In the constitution there is the right to be informed in what's happening. We want this right!! Always near you all, people.

The American press has been just as bad. CNN was finally shamed into covering the events (see Twitter Users Shame CNN []), but the Associated Press isn't even reporting on it aside from a few scant updates about "oh hey there was a protest." I encourage people to send some messages to @APNews and ask why they aren't covering the events in Iran. They're just aiding the censorship by refusing to report.

Green Day - American Idiot
