In-bedded Media Hack 06.06.2003 11:53
AMERICA IS TEACHING IRAQIS ABOUT FREEDOM OF THE PRESS!
America is imposing a "Code of Conduct" for the newly liberated Iraqi Media which will prevent "hateful and destabilizing messages" from being propagated on the airwaves or through the presses of liberated Iraq. Soon the Iraqi people will be able to enjoy an In-bedded media much like the Sheeple of America are privileged to enjoy! Can a FOX NEWS IRAQ or CLEAR CHANNEL IRAQ be far on the horizon?

Libertarianism and Media De-regulation
Nick Gilespie writes in the LA Times:

 link to www.latimes.com

"With few exceptions, whether broadcast and cable television, video, music, publishing or news, we have a far wider range of choices available to us than we did 10, 20 or 30 years ago. Even content providers with near-monopoly power recognize that audiences will go elsewhere if they are not offered the material or service they want at an acceptable price."

Dan Hortsch, the "Public Editor" of the Oregonian, writes a lengthy article, reposted below, in which he calls for the Police Bureau to start showing some "candor" in public statements regarding the Kendra James police homicide. I take issue with Mr. Hortsch's call for "candor", as his paper rarely shows any in reportage on police matters.

Urgent Question: Clear Channel - Montana town story?
Urgent Question: Does anyone remember the details of a story about a small town in Montana? I heard there was some kind of local emergency (possibly a chemical spill?) requiring an emergency alert radio broadcast. When they called the local radio station (owned by Clear Channel) there was NO ONE THERE - the entire radio station was automated and run by CC from a distance - and the emergency broadcast could not be made.

Corpotate Media Note on Kendra James
I don't advocate watching corporate media. For the most part, it's poison and lies. But, since I have soundly criticized channel 8 in the past for their slanted coverage and their strongarm tactics -- bringing body guards to protests! -- I want to take a moment to recognize an anomalous event. Some coverage that was actually balanced!

Yeah, even though the mainstream media is mostly monopolzed already, and it seems like there's no hope to ever change that fact... still, ... at least 2 dozen radio stations in Portland are owned by 2 companies, clear channel being one of them, another out of philly being another... local musicians don't have a chance when this happens to radio.. and this regulation allows more than one kind of media to be owned by one corporation... takes a few seconds to go to www.mediareform.net .... go ahead, might make a difference...

She has amnesia?? how convenient!

In the 1998 film "Wag the Dog," political operatives employ special editing techniques to create phony footage that will engender public sympathy for a manufactured war. Now we find that in 2003 the real-life Pentagon's ability and willingness to manipulate the facts make Hollywood's story lines look tame.
