Jefferson County, WA

In this blog's recognition of Washington's 39 counties, each of the next 39 posts on Commoner will be named in honor of a county, in alphabetical order starting with Adams. The county that is recognized on a particular day does not necessarily correlate with the particular topic chosen for that day other than in the general sense.

How does the media get away with brazen, flat out lies about who are candidates for office in Washington (and no doubt, this is a problem throughout the U.S., not just here)?  It all goes back to that old chestnut: the more brazen and bigger the lie, the more believable the story  -- or some version of thisYou can pretty much approximate which candidates will be accorded credibility by how strongly they align themselves with the corporate power structure.  They are not called the corporate media for nothing as they have reserved powers for themselves that is more akin to a totalitarian society than democracy, and that's practically where we're at until the people decide otherwise.  Vote for Mark Greene for Lieutenant Governor!

If possible, please, consider contributing to campaign: make selections of how you want to donate, or send check or money order to Mark Greene for Lieutenant Governor Comm., P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Also, Mark is depending on supporters to spread the word about the campaign to get around the media bias regarding non-establishment campaigns. Thank you! Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2011 and to call out names. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
