I find it bizarre that well-known movie critic Michael Medved would take time from his busy schedule to post broadsides against Rachel Corrie on obscure newsgroups like alt.zines. Here's a person who wishes to hear no contrary opinions, who'd like to stifle all dissent. We see the behavior that has led to her tragedy being ignored by the mainstream conglomerate media (in contrast, say, to the non-stop coverage given Jessica Lynch).

It's a strong argument for why the ULA exists-- to present truths, news, and ideas you won't find anywhere else. (Others also fight to present alternate viewpoints in small independent publications, and in corners of the Internet.)
