June 14, 2005

The American Remake: A New Form of Cultural Imperialism - If not deep-seated racism, what is it that makes American audiences more comfortable with Naomi Watts' blonde, freckled, blue-eyed appearance than with Nanako Matsushima's own beauty? Why would we prefer the Celtic blue eyes of Jennifer Connelly over the brown of Hitomi Kuroki? It's not enough for a film lead to be beautiful, it seems she must be white as well.
(1166 views)

Corporate vs. Community Internet - Though outgoing FCC Chairman Michael Powell may find it funny to joke about a "Mercedes divide," the ever increasing gap "between those who have access to information technology and digital content and those who do not" is no laughing matter. One expert compared such high-speed Internet access inequity to "having the moderate and upper classes in IMAX theatres, while the underprivileged are still watching silent movies."

Microsoft joins Yahoo!, Google in censoring China's web - Users of Microsoft's new China-based Internet portal were blocked from using the words "democracy", "freedom" and "human rights" in an apparent move by the US software giant to appease Beijing.

Right, Center Think Tanks Still Most Quoted: Study of cites debunks "liberal media" claims - A study of media citations of think tanks in 2004—the 10th year of collecting such data—finds that think tanks of the right and center still predominate, despite a slight increase in citations of left-leaning think tanks.

June 11, 2005

Faith-Based Fascism - Like Halliburton, Christ Inc. has become the latest recipient of taxpayer largesse, having won the contract to keep the media out of the news business, and to ensure that power speaks to truth, as opposed to the other way around. In recent months the escalating violence in Iraq and mounting evidence of US-run torture chambers has been dutifully ignored by the Christian News Network, a.k.a. “The Missing White Girl Network” who never miss an opportunity, these days, to provide their theo-con masters with a platform to discredit the administration's naysayers and whistleblowers.
(1708 views)

Public Broadcasting Targeted By House - Panel Seeks to End CPB's Funding Within 2 Years - Expressing alarm, public broadcasters and their supporters in Congress interpreted the move as an escalation of a Republican-led campaign against a perceived liberal bias in their programming. That effort was initiated by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting's own chairman, Kenneth Y. Tomlinson.

Google's long memory stirs privacy concerns - When Google Inc.'s 19 million daily users look up a long-lost classmate, send e-mail or bounce around the Web more quickly with its new Web Accelerator, records of that activity don't go away.
(755 views)

Corporate media hides Iraq war - The Pentagon war to annex Iraq as a profitable region of US capital's empire is still raging, long after the fragile pretexts for invasion have torn like tissue. The sheer brutality and colonial-style character of the occupation have unleashed a firestorm of resistance that enjoys widespread support in the Iraqi population. But not many people in the US are seeing the reality of life for Iraqis and GIs on TV news or in newspapers.

June 5, 2005

The Fear in the U.S. Media - So, even NPR, and PRI are running with fear, CNN, and others have long since capitulated, as has the NY Times and Washington Post—so all we have left are we few on the internet, and at some point, we’ll be shut down, and some of us will probably be “persons of interest” and possibly arrested for sedition and speaking out—as happened in Nazi Germany.

NIN drop out of MTV show over Bush image dispute - "We were set to perform The Hand That Feeds with an unmolested, straightforward image of George W. Bush as the backdrop. Apparently, the image of our president is as offensive to MTV as it is to me," Nine Inch Nails' leader Trent Reznor said in a statement posted on the band's Web site.

Want to use the Web? Your fingerprint, please. - Soon, patrons of the Naperville Public Library - at least those wanting to use the Internet - will need more than a library card. They'll give a fingerprint.

Clear Channel in a Stealth Promotional Campaign - To the average listener, Radio Free Ohio has all the earmarks of pirate radio. For weeks, it sounded as if amateurs had been bleeding their voices into the broadcasts of stations in Akron, Ohio, owned by Clear Channel, the corporate radio giant. But last week it came out that Radio Free Ohio was not a prank on Clear Channel but in fact a prank by Clear Channel.

Catapulting the propaganda -Bush supports culture of life; not in Iraq, of course - As a longtime fan of both George Bushes' eccentric grasp of English, I naturally enjoyed this gem from W.: "See, in my line of work, you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda."

You May be Brainwashed by Corporate Media if You: - ... believe the 5 corporations who own almost all of the media in the U.S. are liberal.
(923 views)

Bye The Times - The Media exists for the purposes of the corporate and government elites. These purposes include preventing ordinary Americans from having any say in their own government. The Media survives as a business only because ordinary Americans give them their money. We are the base of the pyramid, holding it all up.

May 29, 2005

Leg-irons for the press corps - The Lancet says that 100,000 Iraqis have been killed by the American invasion of Iraq. In view of this, which has been mainly ignored by the American media, we can say without hesitation that the war in Iraq is the greatest terrorist act of the new century. How can the CEO's of ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and the New York Times defend the fabrications, deceptions and outright lies that played out day by day on the front pages of America's newspapers and paved the way for the killing fields of Iraq.

TV may turn four-year-olds into bullies - Young children who watch a lot of television are more likely to become bullies, a new study reveals. The authors suggest the increasingly violent nature of children’s cartoons may be to blame.

Great Lies of the American free press - The hands of America's corporate-controlled news media are now dripping with the blood of those sacrificed in a war promoted and exploited for ratings and profit. May this blood that has been shed for their greed never wash clean, lest we forget how easily corruption, avarice and deceit can usurp democracy, blacken the hearts of humanity, and destroy the soul of a nation.

Porn Star Who Ran For Gov. Arrested At Strip Club - Pornographic film star Mary Carey, who ran for California governor in a recall election in 2003, and who is attending a Bush dinner, has been arrested in a raid on a new strip club in the Tacoma suburb of Lakewood, Washington.

Yes, ad-savvy Google scans your Gmail - No e-mail is really private. There is no assurance that a message will reach only its intended target. With dozens of servers and satellites, people can read your messages if they expend the effort. Google is reading peoples' e-mails to target specific advertisements to them.

Google omits controversial news stories in China - The internet's most popular search engine Google has been accused of supporting Chinese internet controls by omitting contentious news stories from search results in China. This has been going on for at least 1 year for China. Is this what happens in the USA too?

Nuzak - What the mainstream media are giving us is elevator news. Recently, I encountered the term "WPN" (for "what passes for news"). I'd like to propose a related term, "Nuzak." It's a functional description of how WPN fits into the life of the average Joe, who never reads a newspaper except for the sports section.

Fair and Balanced Bashing - Fox ran a one-hour documentary called "Iran: The Nuclear Threat." It glorifies Israeli preemptive attacks on Iraq and promotes a preemptive attack on Iran.

SS O'Reilly sinking in a most unflattering manner - Is that a bit of desperation coming from Bill O'Reilly? His show's lost a third of its viewers over the past few months and now he won't shut up about celebrities who refuse to put their heads on his chopping block of a show.
(1247 views)

Agriculture Dept. paid journalist for favorable stories - A third federal agency has admitted it paid a journalist to write favorable stories about its work. Documents released by the Agriculture Department show it paid a freelance writer $9,375 in 2003 to "research and write articles for hunting and fishing magazines describing the benefits of NRCS (Natural Resources Conservation Service) programs."

Tactic: Shift the Burden Of Proof To Your Opponent - Make an assertion, promote your opinion, or provide your interpretation. Before your opponent can question your motive, strength of argument, or basis for your assertions, call for them to prove you wrong. Place the burden of proof for your assumptions on your opponent.
(1648 views)

The Counter-Cultural Revolution - Today's U.S. also is undergoing a program of moral cleanliness. Censorship is in. Creativity and saying anything against the new morals automatically earns one the label of 'un-Amercan.' This counter cultural revolution took decades to implement. Today, it is solidly in place and shows no signs of abatement. It will stick around for years, if not decades. There is little opposition to it.

May 4, 2005

Democratic Fascism - As distinct from the concept of real democracy, democratic fascism is a political ideology, fully backed up by corporate terrorists and war lords in the 'mainstream media' and academia, that adherents would apply to consummate police state at home and impose puppet regimes in the Muslim world, and which they propagate, besides with the barrel of a gun, through economic genocide.

Bushzarro Google: the Quality of Omission and Lies - Google’s plan 'to build a database that will compare the track record and credibility of all news sources around the world, and adjust the ranking of any search results accordingly' is a new form of censorship in the technological era.

Secret Service records raise new questions about discredited conservative reporter - Guckert made more than 200 appearances at the White House during his two-year tenure with the fledging conservative websites GOPUSA and Talon News. He had little to no previous journalism experience, previously worked as a male escort, and was refused a congressional press pass. On at least fourteen occasions, Secret Service records show either the entry or exit time missing. Generally, the existing entry or exit times correlate with press conferences; on most of these days, the records show that Guckert checked in but was never processed out.

Saving the Internet - The Internet as we have known it is going to change -- the only question is how. There's a fight going on over that question, and at stake is nothing less than the Internet's potential as a medium for free expression, civic involvement, and economic innovation.

PBS Scrutiny Raises Political Antennas - Liberal commentator Bill Moyers is out on PBS stations. Buster the animated rabbit is under a cloud of suspicion. And right-wing yakkers from the Wall Street Journal editorial page have been handed their own public-television chat show. PBS is being forced to toe a more conservative line in its programming by the Republican-dominated agency that provides about $30 million in federal funds to the Alexandria-based service

News or Public Relations? For Bush It's a Blur - "Thank you, Bush. Thank you, U.S.A.," a jubilant Iraqi-American told a camera crew in Kansas City for a segment about reaction to the fall of Baghdad. A second report told of "another success" in the Bush administration's "drive to strengthen aviation security"; the reporter called it "one of the most remarkable campaigns in aviation history." A third segment, broadcast in January, described the administration's determination to open markets for American farmers. To a viewer, each report looked like any other 90-second segment on the local news. In fact, the federal government produced all three.

Cadre grows to rein in message - The ranks of federal public affairs officials swelled during the Bush administration's first term, but that hasn't meant that government information is easier to get. "The role of public affairs officers is not to make information available to the public, as one would naively assume, rather, it is to regulate public access to information, which is something quite different."

The White House Stages Its 'Daily Show' - The existence of Jeff Gannon, the propagandist impersonating a reporter is disturbing. However what is even more disturbing is that he is not the first but the sixth "journalist" (four of whom have been unmasked so far this year) to have been a propagandist on the payroll of either the Bush administration or a barely arms-length ally like Talon News, while simultaneously appearing in print or broadcast forums that purport to be real news

February 19, 2005

The mole, the US media and a White House coup - For two years Jeff Gannon cut an unobtrusive figure at White House press conferences. He was writing under a false name and working for a Republican front organisation. His 'softball' questions to White House officials can now be seen as plotting by an administration which has frequently displayed a dark mastery of the arts of press control.

A hireling, a fraud, and a prostitute - His real name is James Dale Guckert. He has no journalistic background whatsoever. His application for a press credential to cover the Congress was rejected. But the White House arranged for him to be given a new pass every single day, a deliberate evasion of the regular credentialing that requires an FBI security check. It was soon revealed. "Gannon" owned and advertised his services as a gay escort on more than half a dozen websites.
