Viewing Media NEWS articles 1 through 23 of 23.
- Imagine my shock when it came to light that Fox News had prostrated itself in front of the government and adopted lockstep the 'terrorist surveillance program' rhetoric on its news broadcasts.
- The nation's largest telephone and cable companies are crafting an alarming set of strategies that would transform the free, open and nondiscriminatory Internet of today to a privately run and branded service that would charge a fee for virtually everything we do online.
- This is all part and parcel of the mind control. The image is king. The image is the reality. There is no person. There is no president. Nobody is there. Only the image.
- He has obviously fallen prey to the epidemic of Beltway coziness that has turned far too many in the MSM into toothless house cats curled at the feet of those in power.
- Some of the biggest advertisers are taking their advertising away from full page ads and television spots and spending up on hidden persuasion. You won't find these secret messages in ice-cubes or flickering film footage like they were in the sixties. Subliminal advertising has gone mainstream - fake news, mind control scripts, propaganda and stealth voicemail are in wide use by corporations, government bodies, and industry groups.
- How has the Pentagon and the CIA, together with its friends in Israel, managed to stir a clash between Moslems and the West?
- The first steps in a move to charge for every e mail sent have already been taken. Under the pretext of eliminating spam, Bill Gates and other industry chieftains have proposed Internet users buy credit stamps which denote how many e mails they will be able to send. This of course is the death knell for political newsletters and mailing lists.
- The Times has proved once again that the elite-media is a steadfast partner in mobilizing the masses for an unpopular war. Even though countless thousands of innocent people have already been killed by the Time’s reckless reporting and specious fear-mongering on Iraqi WMD, the editors continue to use the corporate bullhorn to call the nation to arms.
- The government concluded its "Cyber Storm" wargame Friday, its biggest-ever exercise to test how it would respond to devastating attacks over the Internet from anti-globalization activists, underground hackers and bloggers. Bloggers?
- The same people who brought us the Iraq war as show business and "The Rescue of Jessica Lynch" as truth, and who keep bringing us coverage of the White House as public relations, now bring us the Olympics as a two-week commercial for American power.
- The Pentagon is laying the groundwork for privatizing the internet so the information-revolution can be transformed into an information-tyranny, extending to all areas of communications and serving the exclusive interests of a few well-heeled American plutocrats.
- The curious (and absolutely intentional) omission of Israel from the article has an obvious effect on the central conclusion of the article.
- Al-Hajj has been held at Guantanamo Bay since 2002
- Imperial cheerleading-as-reporting...
- A British government-funded fake TV news service allows mild criticism of the US - all the better to support it.
- ...Barbara Starr should be reminded that she is supposed to be a CNN reporter at the Pentagon, not a Pentagon spokesperson on CNN.
- The corporate media exists to serve the status quo, not to inform the people, as is widely assumed by its consumers. It serves the private sector, the bottom line, not the public interest, or the Commonwealth. The commercial media cooperates with those in power to program the public mind by creating propaganda that in essence engenders specific emotional responses, and creates a belief system favorable to the status quo.
- In short, the Sunday talk shows on ABC, CBS, and NBC are dominated by conservative voices, from newsmakers to commentators
- Who writes this shit? And who, exactly, is expected to believe it?
- In studying the opinion pages of the top 25 circulation newspapers in the United States during the first six months of 2005, Extra! found that 95 percent of the nearly 100 press commentaries that examined Venezuelan politics expressed clear hostility to the country's democratically elected president.
- According to NSA sources, the signals intelligence agency, which has been at the center of a political storm over President Bush's warrantless wiretaps of U.S. citizens, has expanded the surveillance of journalists identified by the Bush administration as alleged recipients of classified information.
- In the event of all-out nuclear war, the BBC was to distract the nation by broadcasting a mix of music and light entertainment shows, secret papers released by the Home Office reveal
- They know only one hair color: blonder!
