UNESCO withdraws its sponsorship of Reporters sans Frontières
By : Paris - Friday March 14, 2008
PARIS, March 12 (PL).- The United Nations Organization for Education, Science and Culture (UNESCO) withdrew its sponsorship today from the French group Reporters Sans Frontières (RSF), on the occasion of “Internet Freedom Day.” Diplomatic sources from UNESCO told Prensa Latina that the agency made the decision due to the repeated demonstration of a lack of ethics on the part of RSF in its goal of disqualifying a certain number of countries. The conduct of RSF does not fit the (...)

By : Daveparts - Saturday November 3, 2007
Tom Joad Says, By David Glenn Cox “Maybe, there ain’t no sin and there ain’t no virtue it’s just what folks does.” Tom Joad said this out of his frustration in response to a world that was going to hell and nobody seeming to care. I share Tom’s frustrations with the world. I curse George Orwell for his typical British under statement. That our Big Brother would be faster crueler dumber and more incompetent.

The Media Ignore Credible Poll Revealing 1.2 Million Violent Deaths In Iraq Another aspect of reality that has no place in the corporate media’s painted window was highlighted last Friday with the release (September 14) of a new report by the British polling organization, Opinion Research Business (ORB). ORB is no dissident, anti-war outfit; it is a respected polling company that has conducted studies for customers as mainstream as the BBC and the Conservative Party. The latest poll (...)

By Abdoulaye Massalatchi Francois Bergeron, Paris, October 6 NIAMEY, Oct 6 (Reuters) - Authorities in Niger have expelled a French documentary film-maker for suspected links to a Tuareg-led rebellion in the desert north. Francois Bergeron, an independent film-maker who has been working on a series of documentaries about Tuareg nomads in Niger, was arrested in August in Agadez, a Saharan trading town at the centre of an 8-month-old Tuareg uprising.

Darfur: pornography for the chattering classes
By : LITTLE SISTER - Sunday August 19, 2007
By Brendan O’ Neill Normally, when one of Britain’s stuffy media watchdogs decrees that some public figure or broadcaster has said something less than honest, it causes a commotion. When the Advertising Standards Authority said earlier this year that Gillian McKeith, TV’s self-styled healthy eating guru, should stop using the title ‘Dr’, the media had a feeding frenzy. The Office of Communications’ harsh judgement against Channel 4 over the bullying of (...)

All the Print that’s Fit to News

All totalitarian governments use the media to promote their policies, the media becomes an arm of the government. The Nazi’s understood the use of mass media to convince the public and as the bombs rained down on Germany cities the media would lament how the war had been forced on Germany. How that warmonger Churchill had forced Germany into war. In Russia everyone loved Chairman Stalin, the parades and demonstrations with school children dancing were proof enough to the casual (...)

Vote of No Confidence: Public Says Media Are Liberal, Biased and Inaccurate

By Rich Noyes Many Americans do not believe the news media are fair, accurate or even moral, according to a new survey by the Pew Research Center. The poll of 1500 Americans conducted late last month found that most of the public thinks news organizations are politically biased (55%) and often publish inaccurate stories (53%), and that roughly a third of the audience say the media are too critical of America (31%), hurt democracy (36%) and are immoral (32%). Half of Americans (52%) label (...)

The BBC’s Deceit and Lies to Continue

CHIMES OF FREEDOM, http://tinyurl.com/2o7979 Listening to all the chest-beating currently emanating from a self-obsessed BBC anyone would think that nothing less than a revolution in broadcasting was going on. The BBC must not deceive the audience we are told by its Director General, Mark Thompson. In future, any programme makers who deceive the public will be shown the door, he promises. And BBC staff are going to be trained in how to be honest! Hurrah, at last the message has got (...)

Media Lens: a very British Gatekeeper?
By : venceremos - Sunday July 15, 2007
Medialens is a British website which aspires to view the British mainstream media with a critical eye and to monitor its output, "correcting for the distorted vision of the corporate media," it claims. For years now it has had a running exchange with the BBC about its heavily biased reporting, particularly on the issues of Iraq and Afghanistan. From time to time, I have quoted Medialens on my blog and though I have no time for its editors, Messrs Cromwell and Edwards, the two Davids, with (...)

The British Broadcasting Conspiracy exposed by a Children’s Programme and an Anachronism!
By : venceremos - Saturday July 14, 2007
At last, the lying nature of the BBC propaganda machine has been exposed in the full glare of publicity. The event that has triggered this is, in my opinion, of very little consequence and by focusing on it and other petty issues it appears that, true to form, the BBC is trying desperately to distract our attention from the elephant in its living room. Nevertheless, with the Controller of BBC 1, Peter Fincham, squirming and wringing his hands at the suggestion of his resignation, it has (...)

The Grauniad: An Unlimited Conduit for USUK’s War Propaganda
By : venceremos - Thursday May 24, 2007
Fed up of the garbage with which their mainstream media force-feeds them, North American as well as readers all over the world have turned to newspapers like the UK’s Guardian in the hope of finding informed, intelligent reporting of world events. They will be disappointed. Today’s Guardian is as much part of an Orwellian, Atlanticist, warmongering propaganda campaign as is the disgraceful New York Times. Far from being the ’socialist’ newspaper that our American (...)

BBC=Warmongers & War Criminals
By : venceremos - Thursday April 19, 2007
The BBC’s approach to war and world affairs is, first and foremost, a reflection of the British puppet state’s viewpoint. It is questionable that the BBC was ever an independent organization. But, along with the widespread damage to civil and judicial freedoms caused by the noxious Blair de facto dictatorship, the BBC’s reputation has dropped to an all-time low of news-whoring. Regular readers of this blog will know that I am constantly warning them that the Mainstream (...)

The Media Cover-up of the Najaf Massacre
By : Mike Whitney - Friday February 2, 2007
Mike Whitney – uruknet.info January 31, 2007 So far, there are 2 things that we can say with certainty about the massacre of the 250 Iraqis outside Najaf on Monday. First, we know that there is no substantiating evidence to support the official version of events. And, second, we know that every media outlet in the United States slavishly provided the government’s version to their readers without fact-checking or providing eyewitness testimony. This proves that those who argue (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)

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.

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 (...)
