Wyeth Pharmaceuticals paid for articles praising hormone replacement therapy

Wyeth Pharmaceuticals used (paid) ghostwriters to produce at least 26(possibly more)articles, though some news sources are reporting upwards of 40, in respected medical journals. All supporting the use of hormone replacement therapy in women and many others.

You may recall this hormone replacement therapy was finally stopped because of a greatly increased risk of breast cancer.

Fortune 500 firms get SBA $$B designated only for SMALL businesses

Lloyd Chapman August 21, 2009
Mainstream Media Should Expose Billions In Abuses
2009 will be the eighth consecutive year the SBA will claim Fortune 500 firms are receiving billions of dollars in federal small business contracts day after day, month after month and year after year, accidentally. The SBA claims "miscoding," "computer glitches," "honest mistakes" and "out of date information" are to blame.

Limbaugh tells caller who can't afford $6,000 to treat broken wrist: "Well, you shouldn't have broken your wrist"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such warmth and caring by "Pills."

My first reaction was why does it cost a whole $6000 to treat a broken wrist?

Lesse ...

1. Setting the wrist: $100

2. Bandages, splint, and medical spuulies. $50

3. Staff to fill out mandated Federal Government paperwork. $1250

4. Lawyer: $2000

5. Malpractice insurance to protect from other lawyers: $1000

6. Vigorish for HMO bosses: $1600

Yep, I guess that is what it costs for fix a broken wrist here in America!

Obama at risk from gun-toting protesters?

"Enough Already" by Cindy Sheehan

One of the things I hear quite often from people from all over the political spectrum is: “Why don’t you just go away, you’ve had your 15 minutes of fame.”

Yes, that’s exactly what I thought as soon as I heard that my son was killed in the US’s illegal and immoral war in Iraq: “this is a perfect opportunity to get my 15 minutes of fame.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sheehan was useful to Gibson only so long as she could be used to attack Bush. Now that Obama is in the White House, and the wars continue, Sheehan is shunned!

The Reality TV at the End of the World.

I don’t think I’ve ever really seen a reality show except for being in the room on occasion when one of the early prototypes came on MTV. It’s been years since I’ve seen MTV and decades since I’ve seen network TV so it is safe to say I don’t know what’s going on there. I can look at the general state of intelligence and the culture though and get an intuit into the effects. So… I went to a search engine and I searched for, “How many reality shows are on TV?” Right near the top I found this. I don’t think even the hard core Nimrods who watch this stuff would imagine (if they had that facility) there were so many.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Reality shows are cheap. That's why networks love them.

There is a DVD out there called "LOST REALITY" that is a collection of pilot episodes for reality shows that failed to be bought. As stunning as the idea is that there are indeed reality shows so bad that they do not get on TV, this DVD is an eye opener of just how stupid some reality TV show producers can be!

Stunning Jewish Success Dominates American Media

ABC's Charles Gibson to Cindy Sheehan: Thanks for your sacrifice. Now get lost.

In an appearance August 18 on WLS radio in Chicago, ABC News anchor Charles Gibson was asked about anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan's plans to travel to Martha's Vineyard next week, where she will protest the Iraq and Afghanistan wars while President Obama is vacationing there. Gibson, whose newscast and network featured Sheehan when she led anti-war protests outside President Bush's Texas ranch in 2005, answered, "Enough already."

That's a remarkably different stance from the one Gibson took four years ago.

“Nazis”, Here, “Nazis”, There, “Nazis, Nazis”, Everywhere!

So, who are, and who are not the “Nazis”? Do any of these people even know what a Nazi is, or should I say was? Why do people think that they can gain political traction by throwing the word “Nazi” at their opponents?

One would think that we’re still fighting WW II; that instead of acknowledging the end of that conflict more than 60 years ago, the Nazis are alive and well hiding in the closets of the Christian “goyim”.

Flashback: Associated Press Deletes Crucial Portion of Witness Statement

On 12 October 2003, two suicide bombers drove cars packed with explosives toward the Baghdad Hotel. Iraqi and US personnel fired on them, causing them to crash into a concrete barrier, where their cars exploded. Eight people were killed, including the drivers, and 32 were injured.

The Associated Press filed several versions of this story. It often does this to add new details as a story develops or to correct information. But once in a while, the AP makes changes that are suspect. In this case, they gutted some intriguing information from a witness statement.

Flickr Censors Political Image Critical of President Obama

After creating the image Alkhateeb posted it to his Flickr account and ended up getting over 20,000 views on it. 20,000 views that is until Flickr pulled the image down censoring him, along with everyone who commented on the image, citing “copyright-infringement concerns,” according to the Times.

The owners of KGMB9, KHNL and K5 television stations will eliminate 68 jobs, or more than a third of their staff, as they merge their operations.

I am already getting resumes from some of these people, who used to be clients and now want to be employees.

Odd exchange - "Heil Hitler"

"Israeli" claiming to be here in the US 21 years who seems to love socialized medicine because it was in socialist Israel. Woman says "Heil Hitler." Woman appears to be wearing a pro-Israel shirt and utters a neoconish statement. Two guys move in defensively. "Israeli" calms down and changes topic to Obama. What just happened here?

Flashback: Palin's Joker Exposure. Obama's Communism Gov't Agenda

Palin Charges Against Obama Seem to Move from Socialism to Communism
October 25, 2008 10:53 PM
In Iowa today, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin charged that if Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., wins, he would usher in an era of “government as part of your family, taking care of us, making decisions for us.”
http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalradar/2008/10/palin-warns-dem.html
A member of the audience twice yelled “He’s a Socialist!”
But really, in many ways what Palin was describing sounded more Communist.
"See, under a big government agenda, what you thought was yours, your income, your property, your inventory, your investments, really would belong to somebody else, to everybody else,” Palin said. “And it would be shared with everybody else.”

Obama's Healthcare Deception, Communism in Socialistic Disguise

Defining socialism and single-payer health care
By Jerry Mazza
Aug 17, 2009, 00:21
That’s something you should be scared of, not socialism. What is scary in socialism’s varied history is the face of the totalitarian prince of darkness, Joseph Stalin. Stalin subverted this noble idea into a tool for his own absolute, brutal rule over the Russian people. Yet there are socialist economies in Sweden, Britain, Belgium, and around the world that are totally benign and not totalitarian. Stalin was to socialism what Hitler was to Germany, and then some. In fact, socialism is not so much a political idea or system as it is an economic concept, with the prime purpose to level inequities between the rich, the middle class, and the poor. It’s that simple.

Glenn Beck Fema camp back flip

This video consists of a several clips from from Fox News featuring Glenn Beck. In the first part he makes some very disturbing claims about the reality of FEMA detainment camps and the possiblity of a totalitarian takeover of the United States with the imposition of martial law. In the next segment he completely reverses his position.....

Journalists Show Bias on Global Warming Issues

Their choice of words and the structure of these comments disclose their preference and prejudices of the global warming issues. They also show a remarkable lack of what science is and how it proceeds. These are the self-appointed journalists who view themselves as final arbiters and reporters of what science is. They haven’t a clue.

What is remarkable is that a society of Journalists, allegedly intending to honestly discuss complex issues, has forfeited their professed dispassionate indifference to the global warming issues in exchange for naked advocacy.

Nine out of 10 dollar bills test positive for cocaine

Up to nine out of 10 American bank notes bear traces of cocaine, research has shown. In some large US cities evidence of "dirty money" is even stronger. Analysis of bank notes from Washington DC, home to Congress and the US Presidency, were the most contaminated, with 95 per cent of them carrying minute amounts of the Schedule II (Class A in Britain) drug.

Glenn Beck: What the Media Refuses to Tell You About Rahm Emanuel

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't like Beck, but after Olbermann's flame-out equating town hall protesters with Hamas and Hezbollah I am paying more attention Glenn, and his story about cars.gov looting your computers and this story about key corporate and financial positions going to political campaign hacks are improving Beck's image.

New York Times Doesn't Read Its Own Healthcare Horror Articles

The first paragraph is an incredible example of audacity and cluelessness:

The stubborn yet false rumor that President Obama’s health care proposals would create government-sponsored “death panels” to decide which patients were worthy of living seemed to arise from nowhere in recent weeks.

Duh! Out of nowhere?

NYT Magazine just weeks ago ran an article by Peter Singer,Why We Must Ration Health Care.

Remember Gary Webb?

The Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist documented how CIA-connected drug runners helped usher in the crack cocaine epidemic in The San Jose Mercury News.

Read the series here. Webb discusses his work in this video.

For his trouble, meaning good reporting, Corporate McPravda , led by the L.A. Times and New York Times, raked him over the coals.

Telling the truth cost Webb dearly. He lost his career, family and life.

Why Are Internment Camps Being Built?

The Internet is abuzz with news about the construction of internment camps all across America. Of course, "mainstream" media outlets refuse to touch the subject; or if they do, they pooh-pooh the story; they do what Glenn Beck recently did: try to debunk the story as fallacious and impugn people who speak of it as "conspiracy nuts." The fact that the Becks, Hannitys, Limbaughs, and O'Reillys of the media circus refuse to deal with the construction of large numbers of internment camps does not make them disappear, however.

More advertisers pull support for Glenn Beck

An online campaign against Fox News editorialist Glenn Beck is working.

Web site ColorofChange.org, reacting to a long line of racial comments about President Barack Obama, has managed thus far to knock loose from Beck's fold Lawyers.com, Procter & Gamble, Progressive, S.C. Johnson, GEICO, Men's Wearhouse and, just this morning, Sargento.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You know, ah, we could use some advertisers over here at WRH! :)

Chris Matthews Unloads On Protester Who Carried Gun To Obama Event

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This pretty much proves that this guy was a plant to give the media an easy handle to bash all town hall protesters.

The guy was not only carrying the gun but wearing an earpiece, carrying a provocative sign, and open carry or not under NH law, the Secret Service would not have allowed him within a mile of the President with a gun UNLESS HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THERE.

'Cuba's Healthcare, a Model for the U.S.' Says CNN

Cuba's "impressive" infant mortality rate is kept artificially low by Communist chicanery with statistics and by a truly appalling abortion rate of 0.71 abortions per live birth. This is the hemisphere’s highest, by far. Any Cuban pregnancy that even hints at trouble gets "terminated."

Parent companies give Olbermann and O’Reilly time out

The New York Times reported Saturday that a truce has been negotiated between Bill O’Reilly of Fox News and Keith Olbermann of MSNBC, the two cable loudmouths who have made no secret of their contempt for each other.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

After Olberman's equating of town hall protesters with Hamas and Hezbollah, I am not watching either of them any more.

How Big Media Subverted US Democracy with Lies, Smears and Gross Propaganda

Limbaugh's lies and misrepresentations would have been seen to be those of just another run-o-the-mill fringe nut job if the right wing had not succeeded in stealing what had been the publicly owned air waves! They did seize the media as the textbook first step preceding the takeover of legitimate government. The GOP and the complicit Rush Limbaugh conspired to benefit the very, very few --the ever shrinking 1 percent --which as a result of their efforts and others now own more than 95 percent of the rest of us combined, the shrinking number of huge corporate media conglomerates for whom 'public service' is just a quaint sop that over some twenty years, they've done away with completely.

MSNBC Host: Calling Obama Socialist Is Code For N-Word

After bizarrely claiming that the Obama Joker posters were somehow racist, despite the fact that George W. Bush was also characterized as the comic book villain during his presidency, the establishment media is now floating the wacky conspiracy theory that calling Obama a “socialist” is a secret code which really means the n-word.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pathetic. Just pathetic.

Ignorance = Strength.

Freedom = Slavery.

War = Peace.

Socialist = Nigger?!?!?!??

Doesn't quite work, does it.

Black Activists condemn Obama's race-baiting propaganda

For Release: August 7, 2009
Black Activists Call on Obama to Condemn Race-Baiting Tactics in Health Care Debate
Washington, D.C. - The Project 21 black leadership network is condemning New York Times liberal columnist Paul Krugman for scurrilously pinning racist motives on critics of President Obama's health care proposals.
"Opposition to the proposed health care bill isn't based on race," Massie added. "It is based on a people who are tired of Congress and the President spitting in their faces. It is the collective resolve of a people who are tired of being tread upon. One would think a Nobel prize-winner such as Krugman could figure that out."

CNBC slides as viewers get crunched

But in the core US television sphere, a fall-back to 2007 levels means CNBC has kept none of the new fans who tuned in during the crunch. The channel is slinking back to a dark corner of the cable spectrum. Its smaller rivals, Bloomberg Television and Fox Business, have shown little sign of breaking into the mainstream, so the epochal stage of the crisis, which once seemed set to transform awareness of finance, is becoming a memory.

“Manufactured Protests” Myth Starts To Crack

The media created myth that the town hall protests raging across the country are artificially manufactured is starting to crack, as the public takes the press to task for parroting the erroneous talking point that the demonstrations are the work of lobbyists and Republican organizations, and that they are fostered by underlying racism.

A caller to C-Span’s Washington Journal show perfectly clarified the issues we have been highlighting all along, that the protesters are not just Republican “right-wingers,” they aren’t being prodded into action by lobbyists, and the anger is not just directed against Obamacare, but against the entire agenda, and especially against Congress passing legislation thousands of pages long without even reading it.

Google and Blogger Shut Down Sibel Edmonds’ Blog

Increasingly, Google and its properties — the vastly popular video site YouTube and equally popular Blogger — are tools for shutting down opposition to the government. On the weekend, Google removed an Alex Jones video critical of Obama’s policies. Google classified the video as “hate speech” because the corporation allegedly received complaints the content of the video was racist. In the video, Alex appears as “Obama the Joker,” as depicted in a now infamous street art poster

ANTI-ARAB BRAINWASHING BY THE US MEDIA

Paul J. Balles shows how the US media’s application of Joseph Goebbels’s dictum – that a lie, if audacious enough and repeated enough times, will be believed by the masses – has produced a plethora of anti-Arab bigots, from the likes of Steve Emerson, Alan Dershowitz, Caroline Glick and Ruth Conniff to the racist ranting of brainless lumpen on the internet.

Behind The Clinton 'Rescue' In North Korea

The capture of two US reporters of Chinese descent, who worked for Al Gore, and their subsequent rescue from North Korea's clutches by former President Bill Clinton was a setup from the beginning. Nothing reported about this story comes close to the real truth. As I covered the story in a prior brief, the initial capture of the reporters on the frozen Yalu River (where no one could prove which side of the China-NK border they were really on) was a predictable tactic used by North Korea to obtain secret concessions from the US. The two women were railroaded into a North Korean court and sentenced to hard labor in one of NK's notorious prison camps. This was done for the shock effect to illicit horror around the world. In reality, they never suffered a day of hard labor.

Leave Good Footprints- Cave Dei Videt.

Yesterday, Michael Rivero made the statement that he would no longer link to AP articles because links create traffic and he doesn’t feel like supporting that.

When the going gets tough, editorial boards turn to John Bolton

If you feel like you have been reading a lot of John Bolton recently, it's because you have. A Nexis search reveals that over the past 12 weeks, John Bolton has been published on the op-ed page of a major American publication nine times.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason Bolton has been getting so much "page/web/face time is that John has never met a potential US military conflict he hasn't just loved; particularly when that conflict may well pit the US against any one of Israel's many existential threat, like Iraq, and now... Iran.

Of course, John's never seen a day of warfare up close in his life; he's an attorney whose bio indicates a series of jobs in and around Washington DC.

Most people who have actually seen combat, up close and personal, are generally not so deeply in love with war as the ultimate solution for everything as Bolton appears to be.

The drumbeats for war against Iran are beating faster and faster, with Obama and Gates haven been given their marching orders from Tel Aviv recently in a series of meetings there and in Washington.

Obama has indicated now that Iran has only until the end of September to acquiesce to his demands. After that time frame, we could well see an "October Surprise" in the form of an Israeli-led/US-supported attack against Iran.

Murdoch vows to charge for all online content

However, they resulted in a $3.4bn net loss for the full year, down from net income of $5.4bn a year earlier, reflecting $8.9bn in impairment charges.

The sweeping decision by the owner of titles including The News of the World and The Australian to abandon the practice of giving away news in exchange for attracting a large audience for advertisers could embolden other publishers warily examining paid content models.

"We intend to charge for all our news websites," Mr Murdoch said.

"If we're successful, we'll be followed by all media," he added, predicting "significant revenues" from charging for differentiated news online.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rupe, ol' boy; the reason you are losing audience and ad revenue has nothing to do with your business model and everything to do with the bias, slant, and deception regularly peddled by your rags as "News."

It doesn't matter if you change how you sell your lies; people still will not buy them.

People want the truth, and they will go where they need to to get it.

London Times Smears 9/11 Truth Movement As Racist, Nazi Like, Stupid

A vicious attack piece in the Rupert Murdoch owned London Times has linked the so called "birther" phenomenon with 9/11 Truth, in an effort to imply that the movement is inherently racist and "intellectually scary" (read stupid).

In an article entitled To tell you the truth, these conspiracists scare me, Times "journalist" James Bone equates those who question the government version of events on 9/11 with "crackpot birthers", referring to those who have questioned Barack Obama's eligibility to serve as President.

Webmaster's Commentary:

And if you have someone in the White House perfectly willing to exercise that power by making implied threats, there isn't much even giant corporations can do to deny Obama what he wants.
In the days before President Obama's last news conference, as the networks weighed whether to give up a chunk of their precious prime time, Rahm Emanuel went straight to the top.

Leading Journalists Expose Major Cover-ups in Media

Pierre Salinger announced to the world on Nov. 8, 1996, that he’d received documents proving that a US Navy missile had accidentally downed [TWA flight 800]. That same day, FBI’s Jim Kallstrom called a press conference. A man raised his hand and asked why the Navy was involved in the recovery and investigation while a possible suspect. “Remove him!” [Kallstrom] yelled. Two men leapt over to the questioner and grabbed him by the arms. There was a momentary chill in the air after the guy had been dragged out of the room. Kallstrom and entourage acted as if nothing had happened. [Kallstrom was later hired by CBS.]

Consequences

One has to wonder why people never learn from the lessons of history. Why is it that the rulers and enforcers of laws turn a blind eye to the atrociousness and retributions leveled upon them from days past, justified by the brutality of power madness currently sweeping the landscape? Do they think they are going to continue along this destructive path and not suffer the consequences when history repeatedly proves otherwise? Are they that stupid to believe they can treat people like herds of stock and not get gored?

Obama: The Empire's LatestPuppet

Obama Is No Sell-Out:
Just The Empire's LatestPuppet
by Larry Pinkey
July 30, 2009 Issue 335
While the continuing enormous loss of jobs and other forms of economic disenfranchisement of everyday people of all colors increases in this land by leaps and bounds, so does racism, hypocrisy, and corporate greed under this Obama presidency. These intolerable realities did not come about by mere coincidence or happenstance, and President Barack Obama himself is very much complicitous in this. The bamboozling by Obama of the people of this nation cannot and will not stand indefinitely.

The Great Tax Con Job

Republicans are using the T-word - taxes - to attack the Obama healthcare program. It's a strategy based in a lie.

A very small niche of America's uber-wealthy have pulled off what may well be the biggest con job in the history of our republic, and they did it in a startlingly brief 30 or so years. True, they spent over three billion dollars to make it happen, but the reward to them was in the hundreds of billions - and will continue to be.

Dan Rather slams the corporate media

Dan Rather slammed the corporate media in a talk Tuesday for the erosion of quality journalism, and the corporatization, politicization, and “trivialization” of news.

He also said:

A democracy and free people cannot thrive without a fiercely independent press.

This is true, of course.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This from the guy who rocketed to media stardom by reporting that John F. Kennedy's head "rocketed forward" from the fatal head shot in Dallas.

When Jim Garrison's trial of Clay Shaw forced the Zapruder film into the public, it was revealed that Rather had "mis-stated" the facts. Kennedy's head is shoved backward by the force of the gunshot.

Why Obama should make George W. Bush his Mideast envoy.

It's a full-court press on the Israelis, and the American wish list is long. They want Israel to stop expanding settlements; to stop building Jewish neighborhoods in East Jerusalem; and for hawks in the government to chill out while the U.S. is negotiating with Iran. And yet, odds are, they'll come back to Washington empty-handed, for reasons having to do as much with atmospherics as policy: Team Obama just doesn't have Israel's full trust.

But there is someone who does—someone who could use a job, someone who argued straightforwardly for a Palestinian state, and yet someone who has the implicit admiration and regard of Israel. President Obama needs a new envoy to the region who can get results—and George W. Bush is his man.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are these people out of their minds? Bush got along with Israel because he simply gave them whatever they wanted, including thousands of American lives to smash up Iraq and full protection on 9-11.

If Bush makes the same requests of Israel as Obama is, Israel will treat him just as disdainfully.

Left-Wing Website With Direct Ties To White House Smears Alex Jones

As the establishment intensifies its efforts to demonize its political adversaries as extremists and terrorists, an George Soros-funded left-wing website with direct ties to the Obama White House has parroted the months-old debunked smear that Pittsburgh cop killer Richard Poplawski was an Alex Jones fan.

Think Progress claims that it is a “nonpartisan organization,” and yet it’s bankrolled by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, a think tank headed by Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff John D. Podesta (pictured top), who was also head of Barack Obama’s presidential transition team after the 2008 election.

MSNBC Implies People Skeptical Of Government Are Psychologically Insane

During a discussion of the Obama birth certificate controversy, MSNBC host Chris Matthews and his guests implied that anyone who questions the official 9/11 story, thinks the Bilderberg group are exercising power to create a world government, people who are worried about gun control and immigration, or even people who are merely skeptical of government, are psychologically insane.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This tells us that the Obama birth certificate story is being used as a straw man to "poison the well" of public discussion about the government.
The media are going to fan this issue up, then Obama will show his real birth certificate, and the corporate media will use that to attack discussions about 9-11, Israel, the validity of the wars, torture, etc.

Other Unknown Facts : The Truth About Cops and Race

The Truth About Cops and Race
By Michael Filozof
Last week, Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, a black man, was arrested by a white police officer for disorderly conduct. Gates accused the officer of racism. President Obama created a national media firestorm by commenting on the arrest, saying the cops "acted stupidly" and that the U.S. has a "long history" of "African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately, and that's just a fact."
It's that old liberal stereotype once again - bigoted white cops picking on poor, innocent blacks, just like Selma, Ala. in 1963. Really?
The truth is quite the opposite: minority suspects are likely to kill or injure white officers at a rate much higher than the minority component of the overall population.

Revisiting The Horrors Of The Holocaust

Webmaster's Commentary: 

CBS proves that it is stuck living in the past and is irrelevant for the the 21st Century.

That being said, does it make sense to anyone that the Germans would keep such meticulous records of the health of the inmates at the slave labor camps if they intended to simply exterminate them all?

HISTORY IS A WEAPON

[The] American business community was also very impressed with the propaganda effort. They had a problem at that time. The country was becoming formally more democratic. A lot more people were able to vote and that sort of thing. The country was becoming wealthier and more people could participate and a lot of new immigrants were coming in, and so on.

AP plans ‘registry’ to track, license online news content

The US news agency the Associated Press, in a move aimed at protecting its content online, announced on Thursday it was building a “news registry” that would track the use of its stories on the Web.

The New York-based AP, a cooperative owned by more than 1,400 US newspapers, said that the news registry will “tag and track all AP content online to assure compliance with terms of use.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, so we all have to stop linking to (and driving traffic to) AP stories.

The Apollo moon landings were a hoax.

Bigfoot is real.

Creationism is valid science.

The Holocaust didn't happen.

9-11 was an inside job.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I keep telling you that the folks planting blog=o=sphere (Apoolo landings are fake, no passenger at the Pentagon) are working for the government to hand the media an easy means to ridicule all serious discussions regarding the lies fed to us.

The above is a perfectly pathetic example.

Walter Cronkite: Definitional Journalist Saw Big Media's Flaws

The former CBS anchorman cared not just about the next story but about the future of reporting in a country where was known for the better part of a half century as "the most trusted name in news."

So it should come as little surprise that what worried Cronkite in the last years of his life was the collapse of journalistic quality and responsibility that came with the increasing dominance of newsgathering by a handful of media corporations.

"I think it is absolutely essential in a democracy to have competition in the media, a lot of competition, and we seem to be moving away from that," Cronkite told me the last time we spoke about media issues.

Jul 19 09:32

Celebrating Cronkite while ignoring what he did

Cronkite's best moment was when he did exactly that which the modern journalist today insists they must not ever do -- directly contradict claims from government and military officials and suggest that such claims should not be believed. These days, our leading media outlets won't even use words that are disapproved of by the Government.

Basically, the rule on freedom of speech in America is this; you are free to say anything you want, provided you don't attract too many listeners, because once you do, the regime will deem you a threat, and you will be attacked by the press as a racist extremist lunatic, afterward, Jewish hate mongers will organize their usual groups of anarchists, liberals, communists, etc and protest at your home and place of work - complete with bottle and brick throwing, not to mention balloons filled with urine.

Iconic Capa war photo was staged: newspaper

A Spanish Civil War photo by Robert Capa that shows a Republican soldier at the apparent moment he was fatally hit in the back by a bullet was in fact staged, a Spanish newspaper claimed on Friday.

"Capa photographed his soldier at a location where there was no fighting," wrote Barcelona-based newspaper El Periodico which carried out a study of the photograph taken in September 1936, the third month of the war.

The so-called "falling soldier" photo was not taken near Cerro Muriano in the southern Andalusia region, as has long been claimed, but about 50 kilometres (30 miles) away near the town of Espejo, the newspaper said.

Big broadcaster Sinclair in dire straits

Another big broadcaster may be on the verge of bankruptcy.

JoblogoBaltimore-based Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc., which is controlled by David Smith and his family and operates 58 television stations, said if it can't restructure its heavy debt load it will have to file for bankruptcy. The company, which has about $1.3 billion in debt, is trying to negotiate terms on notes of $500 million that are coming due in the next 18 months.

If Sinclair files for bankruptcy it will be bad news for Hollywood, which counts on the broadcaster to spend heavily on programming for its stations. With 58 stations to program, Sinclair is one of the biggest buyers of reruns, movies, talk shows and game shows.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a talk show Sinclair could buy, and it's probably less expensive than the others!

Iran could have atomic bomb within 6 months – report

Germany’s BND foreign intelligence agency believes Iran is capable of producing and testing an atomic bomb within six months, much sooner than most analysts estimate, according to a report in German weekly Stern.

The report, which quotes BND experts, says the agency has information supporting the view that Iran has mastered the enrichment technology necessary to make a bomb and has enough centrifuges to make weaponised uranium.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Needless to say, the BND has already denied making any such comments. This is just another case of Israeli and US propagandists in the media, in this case Reuter's, simply making stuff up.

And then they wonder why they are losing audience to the blogs.

'The Select Few' Are Cashing in: Shocking Corruption at the Washington Post

If you want to know what really matters in Washington, don't go to Capitol Hill for one of those hearings, or pay attention to those staged White House "town meetings." They're just for show. What really happens -- the serious business of Washington -- happens in the shadows, out of sight, off the record. Only occasionally -- and usually only because someone high up stumbles -- do we get a glimpse of just how pervasive the corruption has become.

Case in point: Katharine Weymouth, the publisher of The Washington Post -- one of the most powerful people in DC -- invited top officials from the White House, the Cabinet and Congress to her home for an intimate, off-the-record dinner to discuss health care reform with some of her reporters and editors covering the story.
