February 2, 2006

The End of the Internet? - 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.

February 1, 2006

Sycophantic Lamestream Media Marches to the Newspeak Drumbeat - 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.

January 31, 2006

Feds Want A Wiretap Backdoor In All Net Hardware and Software - Think the federal government is too intrusive? You ain't seen nothing yet. An FCC mandate will require that all hardware and software have a wiretap backdoor that allows the government to tap into all your communications.

January 30, 2006

Russert: At the Feet of the Powerful and Throat of the Weak - ...in the end, it is the Russerts that hurt journalism and betray their nation far more than a Sean Hannity or Bill O'Reilly. The ideologues come and go in our society. The Kissingers, Rumsfelds, Russerts and other soulless practitioners of power long survive them.

January 27, 2006

Neo-Con Mouthpieces Still Clinging to Osama-Saddam Link - Neo-Con mouthpiece government shills Sean Hannity and Newsmax simply don't know when to stop.

Why don’t we know what is going on in Israel & Palestine? - Recent studies of U.S. media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict reveal that the media reported Israeli children’s deaths at rates 7 to 40 times greater than Palestinian children’s deaths. Some typical examples...

January 26, 2006

How the BBC hollows out the "news" - A major problem anybody confronts when trying to sort fact from fiction in the news—aside from any confusion that occurs in trying to figure out if anything the mainstream media "reports" is "news" or merely opinion posing as fact—is the sheer volume and consistency of the coverage, which ultimately depends on specific words and phrases that come pre-loaded with meaning through their repetitive use over years of news coverage.

Iraqi journalist murdered by US troops - Yesterday, news emerged that an Iraqi journalist was killed by US troops in Ramadi. The journalist's body was riddled with bullets - some 20 of them.

How to Cover Up a Massacre of the Innocents - Don't talk about it, mention it only in passing, get the facts wrong, refuse to investigate.

January 25, 2006

Killing the Messenger: The Silencing of Journalism in Iraq - Today, only few Western journalists remain impartial and objective in their duty to report on the U.S. war crimes and the destruction of Iraq and the Iraqi society. However, those few independent and objective journalists who challenge power are endangered species, and may soon extinct if they remain unprotected.

January 24, 2006

Group Presses US Military on Jailed Journalists - The Committee to Protect Journalists on Monday called for the U.S. military to free two journalists, one held without charge in Iraq and the other, the media rights group said, detained at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

January 22, 2006

Why Won't The Media Touch This Book? - Bush/Cheney stole their re-election in 2004. They stole it not just in Ohio, but all throughout the USA, from coast to coast. The evidence is both abundant and precise--and it's all here in Fooled Again.

Bought and paid for lies and propaganda masquerading as news - "Conservative foundations have overt political and ideological agendas and invest comprehensively to promote a given issue on every front. In the words of the director of one foundation, the right understands that government policies are based on information from "a conveyer belt from thinkers, academics and activists," and provides funding accordingly."

January 21, 2006

The Washington Post and the Coming Crash - The Washington Post is one of the world’s “great” newspapers. But to the American-European financial establishment, it is much more than that. It is one of their house organs, with close ties to the U.S. government intelligence community. The Post’s job is to shape the news the way the East Coast establishment wants it shaped. No one should think for an instant that rookie reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein would have been allowed to unmask President Richard Nixon if the intelligence/financier elite hadn’t decided it was time for the cursing Californian to go.

January 20, 2006

U.S. Obtains Internet Users' Search Records - Yahoo and others reveal queries from millions of people; Google refuses. Identities aren't included, but the data trove stirs privacy fears.

January 19, 2006

When The Press Serves Power - Major news outlets boasted anchors and reporters who became wealthy celebrities, miles removed from the best reporting, or street reporting that began their careers. As they moved farther from the streets, so did their product, which should now be called "narrowcasting."

Feds after Google data - The Bush administration on Wednesday asked a federal judge to order Google to turn over a broad range of material from its closely guarded databases.

January 18, 2006

January 16, 2006

Ted Koppel: "Natural Fit" at NPR News and Longtime Booster of Henry Kissinger - ..."the heart of the story" about U.S. foreign policy has often involved deceptions from Washington. And since Koppel became a prominent journalist, he has been a fervent booster of one of the most prodigious and murderous deceivers in U.S. history.

January 14, 2006

January 11, 2006

Was NYT’s David Rosenbaum Assassinated? - As Operation CHAOS reveals, the CIA has never honored its domestic hands-off charter and it is not a stretch to conclude that it has for some time operated unfettered in America, using the same murderous tactics it has used and continues to use elsewhere in the world at the behest of various presidents and their handlers.

January 10, 2006

Indian States Monitoring Cybercafe Users - Several other Asian countries and cities, most prominently China, require registration at cybercafes. Italy is the only European Union country to require Internet cafes to record ID information, but nonmember Switzerland does require that customers show ID.

The assassination of David Rosenbaum - Authorities are looking for two suspicious men, seen leaving the area in a car. They have a partial plate on the car. Hit men use cars and travel in pairs. Muggers don't.

MSNBC guests skewed right during first day of Alito confirmation hearing - In the first four hours of MSNBC's January 9 coverage of the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Samuel A. Alito Jr., the network featured interviews with Pat Buchanan, former RNC chairman Ed Gillespie, and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) -- but no Democratic or progressive commentators.

January 9, 2006

Create an e-annoyance, go to jail - Annoying someone via the Internet is now a federal crime.

January 8, 2006

Get out of MySpace, bloggers rage at Murdoch - Angry members of MySpace, the personal file-sharing website for young adults, are accusing Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation of censoring their postings and blocking their access to rival sites.

January 7, 2006

Government Web sites are keeping an eye on you - Dozens of federal agencies are tracking visits to U.S. government Web sites in violation of long-standing rules designed to protect online privacy, a CNET News.com investigation shows. From the Air Force to the Treasury Department, government agencies are using either "Web bugs" or permanent cookies to monitor their visitors' behavior, even though federal law restricts the practice.

January 6, 2006

Corporate media - Now that's corporate media! Jeez, why not just put "PAID ADVERTISEMENT" on the top of the page?

A Zionist Falls and the BBC Goes Nuts. - It bears remembering at this vital time, then, that Sharon's plan was not one of "peace" (interesting way to frame the question). He was implementing a plan which his senior adviser Dov Weisglass described as formaldehyde.

January 4, 2006

January 3, 2006

The People Are Unfit to Rule: The Ideological Meaning of Maury Povich and Jerry Springer - What’s going on here? Beyond their profitable (for broadcasters) appeal to the public’s most base and voyeuristic instincts, these and other "real—life" television shows play a neglected ideological role in the corporate-crafted "popular culture" of parasitic late capitalism. They are part of an elitist thought control project: the cultural engineering and enforcement of mass consent to social hierarchy.

Spooky AOL Ad Says Big Brother Is Watching the Internet - Why is a company that profits from Internet use demonizing the Internet?

January 2, 2006

What’s Wrong with Amy Goodman? - ...why does Amy Goodman invite rightwing pundits for "debates" and "discussions"? Not just a few times, but lately quite regularly. Don’t the Rightwing propagandists have almost all the other platforms already?

January 1, 2006

Skirmishes in the Information Wars - The corporate model of media is antithetical to personal freedom. When the marketplace of ideas is reduced to the solitary task of plying soapsuds and tennis shoes for big business, democracy is bound to suffer. Ultimately, commercial media cannot help but become an annex of the political establishment, developing collusive ties with the very people it is supposed to scrutinize. Media as "watchdog of power" is a romantic notion with no real basis in fact. Rather, in its present manifestation, media serves as a junior partner in the "weaponizing" of information; transforming the events of the day into a repetitious mantra extolling the objectives of society’s overlords.

Only 5 Corporations Now Control Majority Of US Media - (newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations, books, music, movies, videos, wire services and photo agencies)

December 31, 2005

Malkin’s Glee Over the Fake Persecution of the Corporate Media - ...all the information we receive through the corporate conduits—from "revelations" about the neocon rape and torture apparatus to "leaks" about Bush’s effort to snoop all suspicious Americans—is information engineered for our consumption. Our government, hijacked years ago by vicious Machiavellian Straussists (a Zionist take on the neolib paradigm), wants us to know about the rape and torture camps, the death squads, and now they want us to fear—or those of us who are activists or write blogs—the roving eye of Big Brother, neocon-style.

December 29, 2005

BUSH'S WAR ON PORN TARGETS HOLLYWOOD, THE INTERNET, AND THE FIRST AMENDMENT IN '06 - Not since Ronald Reagan’s attorney general, Edwin Meese (left), made a crusade against pornography a top priority has there been such a broad-scale attempt to destroy First Amendment protections for sexual expression and sexual privacy as the one currently being mounted by the Bush administration and congressional Republicans.

"Limited Circulation", please !! - A request by the Corporate Media

December 27, 2005

News About News - ...news seems to be coming our way faster and with a greater fury than ever before. A tsunami of "Breaking News" bulletins courses through the veins and ganglia of what passes for an information system. A corporate news system pumps it on more platforms dedicated to "more news in less time" on the web, on TV, on the radio, and now on the phone. It's hard to escape the deluge.

2005 Media Follies! - The 10th annual list of the year's most overhyped and underreported stories.

December 26, 2005

Neocons Use CNN to Continue Psyops Against American Muslims - ...it can be assumed CNN—long infested with PSYOPS operatives and the corporate media long ago penetrated by the CIA under Operation Mockingbird—is running yet another propaganda campaign designed to stigmatize Muslims as the Straussian neocons...

Announcing the P.U.-litzer Prizes for 2005 - ...the fourteenth annual P.U.-litzer Prizes, for the foulest media performances of 2005

December 22, 2005

Five Hours of Free Air: Community TV in Argentina - A few Sundays ago, the 27th of November, at the corner of Quinquela Martín and Hornos, the transmission of Barracas Community TV was broadcast on Channel 5. They watched coverage of the anti-Bush march done by the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo video group, shorts made by children at various schools of the barrio, independent documentaries and interviews with Barracas organizations.

Time names super-rich trio as 2005 "Persons of the Year" - In reality, the primary reason they have been selected is because of their immense personal fortunes. From the viewpoint of the editorial offices of the mass media in America, wealth and power dazzle and impress, and should be duly acknowledged. It matters not that these Persons of the Year travel in an orbit thoroughly disconnected from the lives of the overwhelming majority of the world’s population.

Blackwater Threatens to Sue Journalist - Yesterday I received an email from the journalist Mike Whitney informing me that if he does not remove a statement he made about Blackwater and the so-called Abu Ghraib scandal the mercenary corporation will sue him for defamation.

December 19, 2005

NBC Given "OK" to Run Pentagon Snooping Story, Hoping an Uninformed Public Will Believe Bush is "Strong on Terror"... - The main issue surrounding the release of the NBC story, finding Bush directly ordered the NSA and DOD to use its data base to spy on citizens is not the substance of the story but its timing.

December 18, 2005

Fact Checking the Feds in Airport Shooting - Two air marshals gunned down an American citizen last week in Miami, and the press swallowed the government's now-flawed explanation of a "bomb threat" hook, line, and sinker.

How the Media "Authorize" the Abuse of Government Power - ...it is a story of how today's major media behave with near total deference to power and its own profit motive. What we are watching, even in the seemingly small details of the coverage, is no less than the media's complicity in helping estsablish a quasi-legal framework for what was a clearly illegal abuse of government power. It is in the clearest sense the media being used as tools of state power in overriding the very laws that are supposed to confine state power.

December 17, 2005

The Elusive Quest for Balance - ...tallying up guests from think tanks who've appeared on NPR shows. The score to date: Right 239, Left 141.

Telesur is Constructing Another View - In Latin America, less than one-third of the TV programming originates in the region. Seventy percent of the programming is imported, and within that volume, 62 percent comes from the United States.

December 16, 2005

“Nothing to Worry About” - Pentagon Puppets and Other Orwellian Horrors at USA Today - Normalizing Evil

New York Times admits it held domestic spying story for a full year - On the second page of a report which reveals the White House engaged in warrantless domestic spying, the New York Times reveals that it held the story for a full year at the request of the Bush Administration...

December 15, 2005

Let’s see some ID, please: The end of anonymity on the Internet? - Already over 20 million PCs worldwide are equipped with a tiny security chip called the Trusted Platform Module, although it is as yet rarely activated. But once merchants and other online services begin to use it, the TPM will do something never before seen on the Internet: provide virtually fool-proof verification that you are who you say you are.

Microsoft's Windows Live will spy on you - Cuddly software giant Microsoft will use its new Windows Live geolocation finder as a Big Brother location device for the police.

December 14, 2005

U.S. Ranks Sixth Among Countries Jailing Journalists, Report Says - The United States has tied with Myanmar, the former Burma, for sixth place among countries that are holding the most journalists behind bars, according to a new report by the Committee to Protect Journalists.

December 13, 2005

Director of National Intelligence's Open Source Center (OSC)...is surfing blogs and web sites... - With all the recent complaints about Internet censorship and e-mail blocking, one has to wonder -- what does "managing the world's unclassified knowledge" entail?

Washington Post Backs Bush Death-Toll Grope - The "liberal" Washington Post was among the first to report that Bush has finally put a number on Iraqi dead since the U.S.-led 2003 invasion.

Media Lick the Hand That Feeds Them - Does Wal-Mart’s money buy more than ads?

Yes, We Murder Journalists - If the Bush administration had its way, the whole criminal siege of Fallujah, with its depraved indifference to human life, would have gone unnoticed. The corporate media’s Pentagon-spun propaganda stories about liberation would have gone unchallenged by any unseemly intrusions of reality. Toward that end, the Pentagon declared Fallujah a no-reporting zone, barring all un-embedded journalists from the city. In short, the Pentagon hoped to control all images coming out of the massacre. And they would have pulled it off, had it not been for one independent freelance journalist from Alaska, Dahr Jamail, and an Al Jazeera TV crew.

Rumsfeld Guns for the Press While the Lincoln Group Spins - "Propaganda ruins not only democratic ideas, but also democratic behavior—the foundation of democracy, the very quality without which it cannot exist. The question is not to reject propaganda in the name of public opinion—which, as we well know, is never virginal—or in the name of freedom of individual opinion, which is formed of everything and nothing—but to reject it in the name of a very profound reality: the possibility of choice and differentiation, which is the fundamental characteristic of the individual in the democratic society."

December 11, 2005

Dangerous Assignment - Iraq has proven to be a particularly hazardous posting for journalists. More media workers have been killed there than during the two-decades-long war in Vietnam. And 15 have died at the hands of American forces.

December 10, 2005

AIM Reveals Saudi Billionaire Has Another Link to Parent Company of Fox News - ...Al-waleed bin Talal owns an influential and significant number of voting shares in the company and claims that he forced Fox News to eliminate on-air references to the Muslim role in the recent riots in France. He claimed to have accomplished this by speaking to News Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch.
