Japan had woken a sleeping it appears we started as a tiger and are now We are not acting as a great but as a nation of quitters because things are not going our Why Because we are a divided nation with a liberal bent on destroying everything we stand We are fast becoming a pity me and they are winning the battle on the We are now a nation of selfserving We lack the courage and resolve to prosecute the war as it should The polls show that 63 per cent of our citizens now think Bush is in this doing a good I guess those that were treating the attack on this nation as a police action were

JUDITH ZAFFIHINI 12702Toepperwein Road San Antonio 78233 Telephone 210 6570095 Conservatives talk but old media arent listening ANNCOULTER Ann Coulter is an attor author and a columnist for Universal Press In case you missed this weeks top I halfagreed with something a New York Times editor wrote in a Letter to the Editor of his own If nothing at least Bill Keller now knows how it feels to have to write an angry letter to the editors of The New York I wouldnt have mentioned but now that Keller has opened the Judge Posner did write a ridiculous Reviewing a spate of books about the media last federal appellate court judge Richard Posner argued that all the complaints about the media from the right and left simply reflected how market forces are changing the news He says the main stream media are more liberal than they used to be and attributes that to the rise of new pushing the already liberal media farther His premise is obviously true no industry can remain immune from the laws of supply and demand as long as there is After a century of running an media chieftains are now facing competition for the first time from the radio and cable The Internet alone ensures that the supply will not But the result Posner sees doesnt cor respond with either the laws of capital ism or my TV The old media arent moving left They already were If they are moving to the This can be hard to detect inasmuch as Pravda was their starting When they they lose That was precisely Kellers complaint with He objected to the idea that the august New York Times is subject to the laws of

trying to stand by NBC was forced to fire Arnett after Americans erupted in fury at his traitor ous comments on Saddams staterun W at the outset of the Iraq This is what liberals mean when they say the country has become Now when they try to put traitors on Americans com the only network still assidu ously following Posners give the con sumers what they dont want business model is They will go
