AP account of Downing Street question differs from that of White House, Washington Post
By : rawstory.com - Wednesday June 8, 2005
The Associated Press appears to have errantly revised a question asked by a Reuters reporter about the Downing Street minutes, RAW STORY has discovered. The AP transcript says the reporter asked a question which included the phrase, "intelligence and facts remain fixed" around the policy of removing Saddam Hussein, whereas the official White House transcript and account by the Washington Post asserted the reporter said "intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy of removing (...)

IS ANYONE OUT THERE LISTENING?
By : TvNewsLIES - Saturday June 4, 2005
5 comments
Maybe that’s the wrong question. Maybe I should ask if anyone out there is SCREAMING! I know I am, and I’m ready to blow. The corporate media are the common enemy of the American people and they have to be treated as such. They have to be made to feel the anger of the public. They have to be made to feel ashamed of what they are doing. The man holding the news conference used that phrase again, the one about our winning in Iraq, and they let him get away with it.

Media Black Out Downing Street Minutes
By : David Swanson - Wednesday June 1, 2005
Aggressive followers and participants in U.S. politics often have strong opinions about the Downing Street Minutes. Most other Americans have not heard of or are not clear about what the Downing Street Minutes are. How is this possible? Here we have the official government minutes from a meeting of British Prime Minister Tony Blair and his top national security officials, including a briefing by Richard Dearlove, then-director of Britain’s CIA equivalent, MI-6, who had just returned (...)

Public Broadcasting.

It now seems that the U.S.government wishes to eliminate a threat to the U.S. national welfare by removing any tinge of liberalism from Public Broadcasting.Does that mean that I will have to rely on Fox and C.N.N. etc.for the truth?Maybe we can all look forward the"Rush Limbaugh News Hour" or even "Now with Bill O’Reilly".

Pass Constitutional Amendment to Label Information like we Label Food
By : Peace and Democracy through Free Speech - Monday May 30, 2005

As we label food to make informed choices we should also analyze and label programming so we can make informed choices. All programming that is aired should be verified for content, scope, and type, and verified factually and if it meets these criteria then it can be labeled and presented as "NEWS" or "INFORMATION" thus as fact. Today we have no labeling standards only for voilence or such things which is not a verification by an independent people controlled body to insure we as (...)

US Media Censors Uranium Weapons Stories - Depleted Uranium Turns to Poison Gas

Dedication for the year 2120. A Dedication in 2120 might say: Dedicated to the memory of the Iraqi people. Many people believe Iraq was the birthplace of civilization some 5,000 years ago. Iraq was destroyed and radioactively contaminated in an early 21st Century Oil War by a fascist world power, now extinguished. Dedication to the Iraqi People in 2005. Iraq is uninhabitable.

Great Lies of the American free press
By : David R. Hoffman - Saturday May 28, 2005
8 comments
by David R. Hoffman Is freedom of the American press a myth?In several previous PRAVDA articles, I discussed the Bush dictatorship’s prominent use of Adolph Hitler’s "great lie theory" - the political tactic where a leader fabricates "great lies," then "eternally" repeats them until a significant portion of the population comes to accept them as truth. The Bush dictatorship also discovered a residual benefit of the "great lie theory": People are often so myopic or so (...)

American Reporter Needs Help Understanding Why The World Hates Bush
By : Monica Crowley, MSNBC - Friday May 27, 2005

Last week, I spent a few days in London giving a series of lectures on American foreign policy. My audiences were American and generally supportive of what the Bush administration is doing in fighting terror and spreading freedom. The Europeans, on the other hand, were a different story. The British media were full of stories pounding the president and his policies. Since I couldn’t get MSNBC in London, I was stuck watching the BBC, with its nightly onslaught against the U.S. The (...)

Using The Media For A Magic Trick Eugene Robinson May 24, 2005 I propose that the media spend less of their finite, precious resources doing what I’m doing right now: covering the media. No, I don’t want to put all the media writers out of business. Yes, there are days when the making or unmaking of the story is the story. But please, not every day. If we covered government, business, foreign affairs, sports, entertainment and the rest of modern existence as aggressively and (...)

Nuzak: What the mainstream media are giving us is elevator news’

by John W. Baker 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. Nuzak is like Muzak. It runs in the background. It’s a New York Times headline on the way out of the house. It’s CNN at the airport. It’s Fox News at home whileJoe is really doing something (...)

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Eighty-nine Democratic members of the U.S. Congress last week sent President George W. Bush a letter asking for explanation of a secret British memo that said "intelligence and facts were being fixed" to support the Iraq war in mid-2002. The timing of the memo was well before the president brought the issue to Congress for approval. The Times of London newspaper published the memo — actually minutes of a high-level meeting on Iraq held July 23, 2002 — (...)

Secret Service records raise new questions about discredited conservative reporter
By : Steve G - Monday April 25, 2005

In what is unlikely to stem the controversy surrounding disgraced White House correspondent James Guckert, the Secret Service has furnished logs of the writer’s access to the White House after requests by two Democratic congressmembers. The documents, obtained by Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) and Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) through a Freedom of Information Act request, reveal Guckert had remarkable access to the White House. Though he wrote under the name Jeff Gannon, the records show (...)

Both reporters stated they they themselves rarely ventured outside the Green Zone. Naturally, they both made statements to the effect that "things are getting better" in Iraq.

US ’smuggles wounded troops home’ under cover of darkness
By : Andrew Buncombe - Monday April 11, 2005

By Andrew Buncombe in Washington The Pentagon has been accused of smuggling wounded soldiers into the US under cover of darkness to avoid bad publicity about the number of troops being injured and maimed in Iraq. The media have also been prevented from photographing wounded soldiers when they arrive at hospital. Records show that flights from military bases in Germany arrive in the US only at night. Officials say this is purely the result of flight-scheduling pressures and is not a (...)

America’s Broken Electoral System: Get over it, says mainstream press
By : Miranda Spencer - Monday April 11, 2005
5 comments
Throughout 2004, the “swing state” of Ohio was in the media spotlight. Prior to the election, it was a site of alleged voter fraud and suppression; as Extra! reported (12/04), the news media tended to portray the charges as partisan ploys rather than significant threats to the electoral process. Then, on November 2, Ohio became this election’s Florida: Once again a tight race hinged on the electoral votes of a state too close to call. At the end of the night, with only (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
