Viewing Media NEWS articles 226 through 300 of 516

December 10, 2005

The Widening Wasteland of the American Media: Advertisements, Infomercials and Stacatto News - by Ralph Nader - There are times when unchallenged commercial greed morphs into institutional insanity. I am referring to the overall advertising-saturated, trivialized performance of the media conglomerates' utilization of our public airwaves 24 hours a day and their dominance of the ever-expanding scores of cable channels.

How the CIA Paid for Judy Miller's Stories: All the News That's Fit to Buy - By 1953 Operation Mockingbird had a major influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies, including the New York Times, Time, CBS, Time. Wisner's operations were funded by siphoning of funds intended for the Marshall Plan. Some of this money was used to bribe journalists and publishers."

December 9, 2005

Internet Censorship: The Warning Signs Were Not Hidden - America On Line, Microsoft, Yahoo and others are slowly turning the Internet into an information superhighway dominated by barricades, toll booths, off-ramps that lead to dead ends, choke points, and security checks.

Rumsfeld's Handshake Deal With Saddam: History out of media bounds - Today, inside the corporate media frame, history can be supremely relevant when it focuses on Hussein's torture and genocide. But the historic assistance of the U.S. government and American firms is largely off the subject and beside the point.

The War on Christmas - The coup d’etat is almost complete. Corporate America, the FOX like media, and the fundamentalist owned GOP have seduced religious-minded America. What better way to excite gullible Christians, amass more offerings, and generate corporate earnings than a fabricated war on Christmas? At the next FOX board meeting after Christmas, O’Reilly, Gibson, and Hannity can join CEO Rupert Murdoch and their GOP legislative lackeys in singing, "What a friend we have in Jesus"!

December 8, 2005

95 per cent US dailies ignored report on torture of Iraqi prisoners - Military autopsy reports provide indisputable proof that detainees are being tortured to death while in US military custody. Yet the corporate media of the United States (US) is covering it with the seriousness of a garage sale for the local Baptist Church, media research organisation Project Censored has said.

December 6, 2005

Propagating propaganda - Suddenly certain media pundits have "discovered" that our government is fabricating news, and planting it in the Iraqi press? Hey, I've got news for you guys, since the end of the Vietnam War the corporate media have been disseminating "all the news the state views as fit to print."

December 5, 2005

Propaganda and bribery - The Bush administration will pay both at home and in Iraq for buying puff pieces in the media.

December 4, 2005

Damaging Disclosures and the Plot to Bomb al-Jazeera - Interesting how it is a crime to reveal a war crime (or potential war crime), deemed a "damaging disclosure," and Keogh and O’Connor may actually go to prison while Bush and Blair will be free to become "elder statesmen" advising others on how best to kill innocent civilians and journalists.

Television Lies - Advertising claims serve the same function as body blows in boxing, which soften up the fighter before the uppercut to the head puts him out. Television lies train people so that in the end, they will accept almost any kind of propaganda from our incompetent and ill-intentioned government.

December 3, 2005

US press echoes consensus in ruling elite to continue slaughter in Iraq - The most prominent editorial voices of corporate America, from the ultra-right Wall Street Journal to the New York Times, the leading voice of upper-class liberalism, despite disputes over tactics and methods, agree that there is no alternative to using whatever level of violence is required for the United States to remain in control of the oil-rich Mideast country.

December 2, 2005

Failing at its "No. 1 goal": Lack of balance at C-SPAN’s Washington Journal - Despite C-SPAN’s stated goals, Extra!’s study found Washington Journal skewing rightward, favoring Republican and right-of-center interview subjects by considerable margins over Democratic and left-of-center guests. The study also found that women, people of color and public interest viewpoints were substantially underrepresented.

The War on Al Jazeera - ...if a President who claims to be using the US military to liberate countries in order to spread freedom then conspires to destroy media that fail to echo his sentiments, he does not merely disgrace his office and soil the reputation of his country. He attacks a fundamental principle, freedom of the press--particularly a dissenting and disagreeable press--upon which that country was founded.

December 1, 2005

Bushcons Sunny Side the Horror of Iraq - Fake and heavily spun news has emanated from the corporate media since (and before) the CIA launched Operation Mockingbird in the late 40s. ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, Associated Press, United Press International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service, etc., ad nauseam, have worked hand-in-glove with spooks and government overlords for decades...

Probe exposes criminal methods in Republican right takeover of US Public TV - A report issued by the inspector general of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) reveals that its former chairman, Kenneth Tomlinson, violated federal laws in his efforts to refashion public radio and television as propaganda organs for the Republican right and the Bush administration. The report suggests that the entire CPB board was to one degree or another complicit in Tomlinson’s actions.

If you can't shoot the messenger, lock him up - The U.S. has looked at the media it can't control as the "enemy."

November 30, 2005

Is the media ever balanced and fair? - The mainstream media does not really present something called "the news." The news is shaped and created, not simply presented. What is presented as news is based on a number of factors, not least of which is the fact that the folks who own news empires are very rich capitalists whose outlook on the world is shared by the rest of the ruling class with whom they rub elbows.

November 28, 2005

Hollywood, Iraq and 9/11: Reinforcing the Party Line - The criminal elements of the government that carried out 9/11 are hopeful that these re-enactments will put people to sleep and reduce skepticism of their fairy tale official version of events.

November 27, 2005

Neocons Floated Idea of Bombing Al Jazeera Before - Is this the first time someone suggested bombing al Jazeera out of existence? I had a hunch that it had been talked about, on some level, and made its way up to the President, who was probably keen on the idea, personally.

Al-Jazeera was witnessing and reporting on events Washington did not want the world to see.

Woodward's definition of "journalism"? Reporting Bush administration falsehoods as "their point of view" - Under the guise of expressing their "point of view," administration officials were given a forum in which to make numerous questionable and even categorically false statements about the Iraq war, without refutation. In many instances, Woodward knew or should have known of evidence that undermined or refuted their "views."

Deal signed on downloading piracy - What is not known is how many of the 45 million users of BitTorrent search for files to download via the BitTorrent.com site. Many other websites let people search for so-called "torrents" or simply list the most popular ones for people to download and these sites could be unaffected by the deal.

US,UK asked to explain Jazeera memo - Journalists' rights groups are urging the United States and Britain to provide clarification of a report that suggests US President George Bush sought to bomb Aljazeera.

Former CPB Head Reportedly Broke Rules, Ethics Code - The former chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting repeatedly violated the organization's contracting rules and code of ethics in his efforts to promote conservatives in the system, according to an internal investigation released today.

The Weekly Standard’s War - ...in a sense the Iraq War is Bill Kristol’s War as much as it is George W. Bush’s and Dick Cheney’s, and the Standard is the vehicle that made it possible. It should go down in history as Rupert Murdoch’s War as well, and thus becomes by far the most significant historical event ever to be shaped by the Murdoch media.

November 14, 2005

The Corporate Media's threat to Freedom - There's no similarity between the corporate media and a "free press".

The Consequences of Covering Up - Washington Post withholds info on secret prisons at government request

The Dynamic Unification of South America vs. U.S. Foreign Policy and Global Corporate Empire - Yesterday, on our computers via Telesur, we had the pleasure of watching President Chavez of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, as he spoke at the international summit at Mar del Plata in Argentina. He spoke to the massive, attending crowd and to all of Latin America via the Argentinian satellite. We also watched the impressive transcontinental protests against U.S. economic policies (e.g. FTAA), the U.S. war on the people of Iraq and against the very presence of George Walker Bush on their soil. Of course none of this was shown in it's depth or breadth by the corporate media in the U.S.

“Embedded Crony”: Bob Woodward Shows His True Colors - Woodward is so deeply embedded with Bush, Cheney, Rove and the rest of the gang that their interests are now completely his. All of his books, all his past and future reporting, should be read in that light.

What Patrick Fitzgerald didn't say and the Media didn't ask - With inattentiveness of the corporate media and non-presence of the left-wing media, the American public continues to suffer from news neglect. We have 24 hours of news availability on hundreds of television stations in hundreds of markets, but we do not get our necessary ration of truth and facts to allow our democracy to stay healthy. When the government and the complicit media completely control the content of the news, the public only hears what it is supposed to hear, and this favors the status quo, not the real public interest.

GOP operative and Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes, the architect of the right-wing dominance of cable news, is now remaking 35 local television stations -- broadcasting to nearly 40 percent of America’s homes -- in Fox News Channel’s image. Currently, the worst of the ranting radicals like O'Reilly and Hannity are on Fox's cable channel. This would bring them to the airwaves.
