    Here's the headline:

    Transport Providers Generally View TSA Favorably, Report Says

    Here's the "Information":

    Wouldn't most organizations consider that to be abject failure? The headline simply doesn't match the factoid.

    As you all know, this isn't the only piece of drivel this week. There's the spurious "studies" with "data" collected from 1000 surveys collected by the TSA from travelers. (Any 5th graders care to explain to the "adults" why such a study would be so tainted as to be meaningless?) The statisticians who produced these studies should be ashamed to have their names and institutions' credibility attached to such thin lies. How is it that journalists lap up this stuff so eagerly?

    "transport providers"

    what a crock. When air travel continues to plummet, how long will that facade be kept up? Of course TSA behavior is depressing traffic. And it is starting to noticeably hurt.

    but yeah, if I were running a transport company providing an alternative to air travel, I'd be VERY happy with the molesters at TSA!

    As an active "commenter" I noticed that many of our members have been doing a great job of getting their views added to the TSA articles today.

    Lisa Simeone, Elizabeth Conley, Wimpie and Sommer Gentry seem to be everywhere. All of these responses have been well written and reasoned. Even the other comments have been uniformly critical of TSA and our word collective count often exceeds that of the article itself.

    For any of those folks reading this, good work and keep hammering the beast.

    I try to comment where I can as well - it's aggravating having to register so many accounts, and usually when I get that done one of the aforementioned heavy-hitters has already said most or all of what I came to say, but I do try to add fuel to the anti-TSA fire whenever possible.

    When you choose to dance with the devil, eventually you have to pay the devil his due.

    The airlines like TSA because it relieves them of responsibility & liability for screening failures for Part 121 operations and limits their financial contribution to 2001 levels. For these reasons, the airlines really enjoy dancing with devil we know as TSA. They are finally on the verge of realizing -- perhaps in a very big way -- that many of their customers don't share their enthusiasm for satanic rituals.

    I get fed up with registering for the accounts too. I try to keep is simple by retaining the same log in info whenever possible. Nonetheless, sometimes it just isn't worth the trouble to me. Reuters is in a snit because when I catch their journalists lying I say so and lay out the proof. They hate that, so I've been permanently banned. Gee shucks!

    I agree that the multiple registrations is a pain and must have 50-75 individual accounts. Fortunately, many sites are now accepting Disqus, Facebook and other shared logins.
