How Free Is The US Free Press?
By : Dr. James Zogby - Friday January 21, 2005
1 comment
How Free Is The US Free Press? Dr. James Zogby Friday, 21, January, 2005 Just how free is the US’ “free press?” Does the absence of direct government control, by itself, create a “free press?” In a paper I recently presented at a conference organized by the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research, I sought to make a contribution to this discussion by examining the influences that impact US media. While there is no direct political influence or (...)

Firings At CBS Don’t Vindicate Bush
By : Jeani - Tuesday January 18, 2005
Firings At CBS Don’t Vindicate Bush Dave Zweifel January 17, 2005 The headlines in the newspapers and the 10-second snippets on radio and TV were similar to the one that appeared in the Chicago Tribune last week: "CBS News fires 4 in erroneous Bush story." Unfortunately, the headlines and summaries were wrong. Yes, CBS did fire four of its top news people after a two-person independent investigation concluded that the news network failed basic journalistic standards in putting (...)

We have met the enemy, and it is US (corporate media)
By : Mark Drolette - Thursday January 13, 2005

On December 18, I attended Gary Webb’s memorial service in Sacramento, California, along with about 250 other people. In 1996, Webb wrote a series of articles (“Dark Alliance”) for the San Jose Mercury News reporting that, in the 1980s, “a San Francisco Bay Area drug ring sold tons of cocaine to...street gangs of Los Angeles and funneled millions in drug profits to an arm of the contra guerrillas of Nicaragua run by the Central Intelligence Agency” and the (...)

Mysterious ‘George W. Bush: Our leader’ Clear Channel political public service billboard graces Orlando freeway By John Byrne A billboard recently put up in Orlando bearing a smiling photograph of President Bush with the words “Our Leader” is raising eyebrows among progressives who feel the poster is akin to that of propaganda used by tyrannical regimes. RAW STORY confirmed the billboard’s existence Monday evening. The billboard pictured, which is on I-4, (...)

Press Routinely Undercounts U.S. Casualties in Iraq
By : NEW YORK - Sunday November 28, 2004
By E&P Staff NEW YORK As the toll of Americans killed and wounded in Iraq in November approaches record levels for one month in this war, is the press only telling part of the story? The Pentagon’s latest official count, provided on Wednesday, listed 1230 American military killed in Iraq and another 9300 U.S. troops wounded in action. How seriously? More than 5000 of them were too badly injured to return to duty. More than 850 troops were reported to have been wounded in action (...)

It’s Time To Stick It To The Media
By : Rick Gagliano - Monday November 22, 2004
5 comments
Mainstream media must pay the price for news suppression The mainstream media - particularly the television networks NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN and FOX - have failed the American people by neglecting the ongoing controversy surrounding the November 2 presidential election and especially the Ohio recount effort, public hearings and soon, the legal challenge. The networks have no problem reporting ad nauseum on a skirmish between basketball players and fans at an NBA game Friday night, or the (...)

Media downplays vote-counting problems
By : media matters - Saturday November 20, 2004
3 comments
Media downplays vote-counting problems By Media Matters Washington Post columnist and editorial board member Anne Applebaum wrote a widely criticized column this week, suggesting that concerns over paperless electronic voting were unfounded because she doesn’t take a receipt when she uses an automated teller machine (ATM). At least, we think that was her point; it was a little difficult to tell for certain. In what CJR Daily called a "well-deserved smackdown to Anne Applebaum," the (...)

Media accused of ignoring election irregularities
By : Mark Jurkowitz - Thursday November 18, 2004
1 comment
By Mark Jurkowitz Two weeks after Election Day, explosive allegations about a media coverup are percolating. There’s the widely circulated e-mail about a CBS producer who complained that a news industry "lock-down" has prevented journalists from investigating voting problems that cropped up on Nov 2. There’s the rumor that MSNBC host Keith Olbermann, who has devoted serious air time to discussing Election Day irregularities, was fired for broaching the topic. There’s the (...)

Mainstream media loses all credibility in attempting to cover vote fraud
By : Margaret Whitman - Tuesday November 16, 2004
27 comments
The only power that the mainstream media has is that the American people trust them to tell us the truth. As more an more Americans realize that the mainstream media is spoonfed news bites that they want us to hear, their propaganda becomes less powerful. Our democracy is based on a free press and fair vote and it is becoming obvious that in this country we have neither. As our supposed investigative reporters ignore the pile of vote irregularities favoring Bush, they are (...)

Media Black Out on Vote Fraud Allegations
By : DAVID SWANSON - Saturday November 13, 2004
6 comments
The "mainstream" media has fallen down on the job by failing to cover efforts since November 2 to ensure that all votes in the presidential election are accurately counted. The conclusion by John Kerry that an investigation could not possibly reverse the election may quite possibly have been premature. But the question that both activists and the media should be asking is not whether there was enough fraud and errors to decide the election, nor even whether there was more than is usual, but (...)

Bush Vs. Bin Laden: The propaganda war

Bush Vs. Bin Laden: The propaganda war by: An American citizen soon to be arrested for thought crimes. Like Bin Laden, Bush has been highly effective in winning the hearts and minds of the people. OBL has used the same strategy and techniques that were taught to him by the CIA. Why is it working for Osama and not Bush? Bush has not been able to control the media as well as Osama, even though most of the corporate US media has been complicit in helping to hide the realities of the war on (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream
Friday 24 January

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. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

At first glance, the results of America’s 2012 election appear to be a triumph for social, racial, and economic justice and progress in the United States: California voters passed a proposition requiring the rich to shoulder their fair share of the tax burden; Two states, Colorado and Washington, legalized the recreational use of marijuana, while Massachusetts approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes; Washington and two other states, Maine and Maryland, legalized same-sex (...)

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 (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART II

PART I PART III PART IV Several years ago, a young lady came into the college where I was teaching to inquire about a full-time instructor’s position in the sociology department. She was advised that only adjunct positions were available. Her response was, “No thanks. Once an adjunct, always an adjunct.” Her words still echo in my mind. Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

PART II PART III PART IV When The Bill of Rights was added to the United States Constitution over two hundred years ago, Americans were blessed with many rights considered to be “fundamental.” One conspicuously missing, however, was the right to an education. This was not surprising given the tenor of the times. America was primarily an agrarian culture, and education, especially higher education, was viewed as a privilege reserved for the children of the rich and (...)

ONE SOLITARY LIFE, PART TWO
Monday 30 July

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 DEMOCRACY ENDURE?

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 (...)

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! 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. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

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 (...)
