Censoring The Military Embeds
By : Bradford Plumer - Sunday July 9, 2006
Censoring The Military Embeds Posted by Bradford Plumer 0/07/2006 One could devote a lifetime-or at least the better part of a year-to chronicling all the propaganda-like tricks the Bush administration and the military have pursued over the past few years. Here’s a new one, courtesy of Rod Norland, Newsweek’s former bureau chief: The military has started censoring many [embedded reporting] arrangements. Before a journalist is allowed to go on an embed now, [the military] (...)

Bush Busy Attacking Messengers As Terrorists Remain Unmolested
By : Bill Gallagher - Monday July 3, 2006
Bush Busy Attacking Messengers As Terrorists Remain Unmolested By Bill Gallagher July 3 2006 Detroit - The attacks on the media, especially The New York Times, over revelations that the Bush administration has been secretly rummaging through international banking transactions, deflects attention from a far more serious issue. The real story is not that our government is looking at networks financing terrorist operations — a legitimate and necessary activity — but how poorly (...)

The Neocon Battle For Media By Robert Parry June 30, 2006 Since the 1980s, when the neoconservatives burst onto the Washington scene, they have always understood the power that comes from controlling the flow of information that passes from the U.S. government to the news media and then to the American people. This transmission of information through Washington was to these savvy neoconservatives what a key railroad junction was to Civil War generals, a strategic switching point to be (...)

Stephen Colbert Shows President Bush What Shock and Awe is All About

Stephen Colbert was the celebrity entertainer at the 2006 White House Correspondent’s Dinner. But you wouldn’t know it if you only paid attention to main stream media outlets. That is because the main stream media is proving Stephen Colbert right. Colbert, in his persona as a conservative, flag waving, Bush supporting cable show host, unloaded on the Washington press and the administration in a bit of satirical, comedic genius. But the main stream press has decided to pretend it (...)

The White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner was televised on C-Span Saturday evening. Featured entertainer Stephen Colbert delivered a biting rebuke of George W. Bush and the lily-livered press corps. He did it to Bush’s face, unflinching and unbowed by the audience’s muted, humorless response. Democratic Underground members commented in real time (here, here, and here).<script language="JavaScript" src="http://ad.doubleclick.net/adj/huffi...’+ ord (...)

Mainstream Media lying by omission & complicity in 2.7 million Bush Wars death toll - Iran next?
By : Gideon Polya - Tuesday April 18, 2006
Decent people are appalled by news reports of an impending US attack on Iran and we might surmise that if it is a prolonged war (cf Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Vietnam and Korea) that millions of people will die, if not from direct violence then from the collateral but equally deadly consequences of war. US Asian wars over the last 55 years have been associated with avoidable mortality totalling about 18 million - but this is IGNORED by racist, lying, Mainstream Media. A more pertinent (...)

The policy under fierce debate would allow many French employers more "flexibility" to hire and (...)

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.

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 (...)

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 (...)
