    I simply want to say I am just newbie to blogs and absolutely loved you’re web site. More than likely I’m want to bookmark your site . You surely have amazing writings. Thanks a bunch for sharing your website page.


    Hey! Somebody in doing my Facebook number shared this page with us thus i came to check it out. I’m without doubt loving the advice. I’m book-marking and shall be tweeting the to my best followers! Terrific blog together with excellent layout and layout.


      it will be pulled out of cxnetot by the other. (Un)fortunately, Nicaragua considers politics almost like a sport. On one side it is motivating to see people involved in politics unlike first world countries where we are happy when a handful of citizens vote. No questions asked! But with so many people involved at any demonstration and with potential provocations can lead to great Kodak moments ( am I revealing my age ?) and sound bites. In some places it might turn ugly. So the sharks are going to look for those moments and some will fuel it. Just as in sport in is not the teams fault for having misbehaved hooligans. Spare me the comment .This is valid on both sides!What I expect the mass media to do during this march is quite simple: Filter the news and obstruct all undesirable elements from finding their way into your living room or your mind. So FOX will claim that they believe that the 80,000 pro-Gadea people are actually 250,000 and Nicaragua’s dictatorship is a treath to the mother of all Euphemism US national security . He might be a son of gun but he is our son of gun .oh he isn’t call Air America and just liberate (aka bom) them. With taxes payers money and then we (corporate America..Halliburton ) can get paid to reconstruct it. Yes peeps it’s that simple. Ok, yes I am slightly exaggerating but same concept and historically factual. Back to the point, NicaraguaDispatch will try to write both sides of the story but will still use keywords and write in a cxnetot that is beneficial to the USEmbassy (aka Gadea camp) and that their sponsors will approve. If not they will pull out the money source. I understand No business wants to commit suicide but please try to apply the same standards on both groupsI urge that journalistic objective is applied during this event. I actually invite all academics/interested souls to measure this objectivity or lack of it. Let this event show the maturity of journalism. Let it report the news fairly, completely and without bias. Something that is hard to find on our blue little precious and diverse planet.


    Normally I do not read article on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up very compelled me to try and do so! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thanks, very nice post.
