The State of the Facts

Abby Zimet

Last night's State of the Union speech had good visuals,
especially all those "let's all get along" touches. But both sides
ignored alot of the hard facts. What the GOP rebuttal got wrong or made
up here. What Obama sidestepped here and here. As to Bachmann: Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) has the Quote of the Day on her: (She) is clearly not in touch
with the mothership."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
