The News Most Vital to Americans


FOOD FOR THOUGHT: We now have enough subscribers to support if every subscriber to this mailing list donated $1 per month! If we doubled the size of our list it would only take $0.50 per week. Being financed to this point would mean that TvNewsLIES could pay for its overhead and any money over this amount could go towards hiring reporters and expanding the new radio program. It would also allow TvNewsLIES could repay my original investment so that I can do things like pay the rent and buy food! Just something to think about.

Support us with a simple click of the mouse!: If every subscriber to this site clicked on some of the text ads on the news page we would probably earn enough advertising revenue to keep going without donations!

SHOP WITH US! – If you use our links on the side of the news page when you shop at your favorite online stores we receive revenue from the online shops and it costs you nothing!

TVNL Editor's Comments: MASH's Frank Burns Said it All

TV Show Mash, Season 3, Episode 6: While trying to describe how the Korean War was responsible for bringing Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan and him together, Frank Burns uttered the ultimate metaphor for war: “Never have so many suffered so much so so few could be so happy!” So who are those few these days? Think about it! Jesse Richard – Editor,

PERSONAL NOTE: As I have written about earlier, I have not published my newsletter on a daily basis recently due to personal reasons, explained in a previous newsletter. However I intended to resume daily publication by now however a little obstacle entered the scene: neck spasms. I am currently suffering from torticollis, which I can pretty safely say has been the most painful prolonged experience in my life. That includes a 10 month bout of sciatica caused by a broken disk in my spine. The pain is similar to having sciatica all up and down your neck.

Anyway, thanks to a variety of health care professionals, from my Doctor, to my new chiropractor/acupuncturist, to my new masseuse, to my friend who is a chiropractor and acupressure professional, to the emergency room crew (where I found myself yesterday while I was dealing with crippling pain), I seem to have found some relief. I have tried to keep up with updates to the news page but as I feel better I will publish more daily newsletters. Please accept my apologies for the drop off in commentaries and daily mailings. As you can see now...I had a pretty good reason for slacking off:-)

By the way...I did notice something funny at the hospital yesterday...they were building a brand new wing of the emergency room dedicated solely to people who go hunting with Dick Cheney;-)

Thank you for understanding,

NOTE: You can respond to my daily comments on my blog, located here:
