The Irregular Times officially covers Bush and Co. torture better than CNN and other corporate media… and they do it from the bathroom. Video: I Can Cover Torture Better Than CNN from my Bathroom!: “
Another day dawns in which the New York Times utterly fails to cover the fact that George W.

That’s news the paper finds ‘fit to print.’ But not the involvement of the president in a conspiracy to commit torture.
On the television, CNN has devoted not one minute, not one second to the news that your president is at the head of a criminal torture conspiracy. This has so driven me to distraction that I’ve decided I could generate better news coverage from my own bathroom:
BNN: the Bathroom News Network. Yes, it’s unpolished. No, there are no tympanies. But it’s not dirty if it’s true.
