Dear CASI folks, "Should I have said that?", I asked myself, after my recent 'Monstrous' e-letter. Muhamad seems to think so, and I can sympathise with his sentiments re. war etc. Many people's idea of a 'dictator' could be a Roman Caesar or even a wolf leading a flock of sheep. Yet, 'democracy' frequently has elements of dictatorship, too. We could argue, endlessly, about what constitutes good rule. Surely, it would enable everyone to flourish in an atmosphere, not of cruelty & brutality, but of human goodness. Sorry about my naive, Utopian views. Anai feels I should have known about Fox News Channel's policies. I said it somewhat 'tongue-in-cheek', even though I now know a bit more, including what she says about the Fox agenda. The excellent FAIR Reports(Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting) describe Fox as "The most Biased Name in News". Still, no-one should believe that only Fox is dreadful. The 'free' media tend, mostly, to fall into one of these groups: 1) conservative 2) reactionary 3) ultra-conservative. With, perhaps, some honourable exceptions, which shine, like beacons, in the darkness. Greetings, Bert G.
