The Pope Cartoon
By : claude-woof - Monday April 11, 2005
1 comment
I never miss the Al Jazeera cartoons, which are almost always right on the money. After the passing of Pope John Paul II, Al Jazeera published a mildly critical cartoon alluding to the lack of action by the vatican in many world events. However I was quite surprised to realize that after the first day, the publishers modified the cartoon. I wonder if other viewers noticed the same thing. Why were these changes made and who made the final decision?? (...)

United Vegetative States Of America

United Vegetative States Of America Anwaar Hussain April 6, 2005 After having lived for 15 years in a persistent vegetative state, Terri Schindler Schiavo crossed over from here to the hereafter on the last day of March. With her blood scent up in the air, the feral American media went berserk in the last two weeks of Schiavo’s life. Using this so-called freest press in the world, the American public was led on a leash by the right-wing activists with a not-so-subtle help from the (...)

Whom to believe? US Media reports one death. Other sources say at least 29.
By : medialies - Thursday April 7, 2005
2 comments
Some of us don’t trust the US media since the election on November 2, so we have taken to looking elsewhere for accurate news accounts. Since the US media doesn’t seem very interested in telling us what’s going on in Iraq, some of us have found other sources, like the one from which this story was lifted below. (The link will take you to the original, so you can judge for yourself.) What is interesting is that the US media has reported ONE US death over the past two days. (...)

Bush’s Dangerous Propaganda Game
By : alternet - Monday March 28, 2005
4 comments
This deliberate manipulation of our news is more than outrageous - it’s a frontal assault on our democracy and is totally disrespectful of the American people. You’re used to hearing television reporters give their signature tag lines: "In Washington, I’m Karen Ryan reporting." "This is Jennifer Morrow reporting." "I’m Pat O’Leary reporting." But these days, you can’t know if your news presenter is a reporter ... or a ringer. Karen Ryan, for example, is (...)

Gore Vidal on war for oil, politics-free elections, and the late, great U.S. Constitution
By : Steve Perry - Friday March 25, 2005
4 comments
The Undoing of America For the past 40 years or so of Gore Vidal’s prolific 59-year literary career, his great project has been the telling of the American story from the country’s inception to the present day, unencumbered by the court historian’s task of making America’s leaders look like good guys at every turn. The saga has unfolded in two ways: through Vidal’s series of seven historical novels, beginning with Washington DC in 1967 and concluding with The (...)

Media Blackout on Congressional Report "Death of Deliberative Democracy"
By : Eric Alterman - Tuesday March 22, 2005

Yes, Scott Peterson is going to meet his maker and Robert Blake is going to party hardy, and the president continues to lose more ground in his quest to destroy Social Security every time he speaks on behalf of his own program, but any number of stories of import continue to slip through the cracks of a media that have ceased to take their public educational role seriously. One such story can be found, rather surprisingly one must admit, in the release of a fascinating and insightful new (...)

By Elliot D. Cohen, Ph.D Sound the alarm! America, the land of the free, is now under attack, not by Al Qaeda, not by Iraqi "insurgents," not by an enemy confronted on foreign soil; not even by one that homeland security could ever stop. It is an insidious, invisible assailant, more hidden than a terrorist cell. It is one that invades virtually every American household on a daily basis without leaving a trace of its deceitful, dangerous nature. Its whores, draped in dignified apparel, sit (...)

Bush takes questions from male prostitute, refuses veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas

Helen Thomas, who spoke at Siena College’s First Woman President symposium Friday, also had plenty to say about serving as a White House correspondent for United Press International. Not all of it was encouraging. "This president (Bush) doesn’t think he has to answer any questions. ... He even says (during press conferences) this is scripted," bemoaned Thomas, 83, who gave up her reporter job to become a syndicated columnist two years ago and routinely trashes Bush on economic (...)

Secrecy, Torture, Propaganda Mark New American Politburo Practices Bill Gallagher February 15, 2005 Detroit - Like their Soviet predecessors, the top leaders of the American politburo — Dick Cheney and George W.

The very thought of apologizing for failures and injustice — no matter how disastrous and obvious — is repugnant to such regimes. Comrades Cheney (...)

The head of CNN’s news division, Eason Jordan, ignited an Internet firestorm last week when he told a panel at a World Economic Forum gathering in Davos, Switzerland, that the American military had targeted journalists during operations in Iraq.

I was asked to be on the show to offer my opinion on the election in Iraq from the perspective of a mom whose son was killed in the war prior to the elections. One of the questions I was going to be asked was: Do I think my son sacrifice was worth it? Well, I didn’t get a chance to be on the show last night, because I was bumped for something that is really important: The Michael Jackson Trial. If I was (...)

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
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
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 (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

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. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. 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 (...)
