How to Stage A PR Event - Krispy Kreme Style
First, offer irresistible prizes to the first people to enter your store.
When they start queuing up, inform the local media.
Make sure they make no mention of the prizes or that the whole event was engineered by a promotional department; it's better to report it as if it was a spontaneous happening. The illusion of consensus will build traffic, boosting sales.
Treat local reporters like kings, and they'll work for you. We don't need them reporting on the negative aspects of a national chain moving into their neighborhood (traffic problems, impact on locally owned businesses).
Investing a few thousand dollars on an engineered PR event pays huge dividends in the long run and is certainly more cost effective than television or print media ads.

A21: Who pays for our public services, streets and why doesn't the media tell the truth?
Independent media first given Secret Service Clearance to attend Dubya soriee and then denied access by Portland Police. Portland's KGW/NBC Channel 8 Steve Redin assaults indy videographer, because he had to get his prise-winning shot through a chainlink fence. What does the real media look like? You, me or NBC? Who paid for this propaganza fundraiser and who owns the streets? Lane County Commissioner Peter Sorenson and other elected officials want a true healthy forest and safe communities, while Bush wants old growth timber for his timber wealthy donors.

BUSH STARTS FIRES
Someone operating as a dupe for logging interests, or even more insidiously, for the Bush regime, started two massive fires for the backdrop of his visit. It remains to be seen if the 'public' U.S. national forest service will conduct a proper investigation into the cause of the fires. It also remains to be seen if the mainstream media will cover this issue properly. What can we do?

Dissent: Mission Accomplished
The Portland Spitune, aka "Tribune", ran the headline "Bush: Mission Accomplished" this morning. This counts as probably one of their most laughable wastes of ink ever, not to mention gross rationalizations and naked example of wishful thinking. If you call having a pResident being forced to not announce their presence to the local community, setup deceptive motorcade routes, require thousands of dollars of police protection, sneak in and sneak out of political speeches in their own country a successful mission, then I would have to agree with the Spitune. Otherwise, I would say what happened yesterday is the reaffirmation of what the administration learned the last time they were here. That is, people are aware of the miserable person and policy maker that pResident W. is and he should always expect to have to hide his face in shame.

Wednesday morning smoke wafted up to the sky from the Red and Black cafe, and it wasn't from a cigarette. Evidence showed that someone had set fire to the Portland Tribune box. Throughout the day, plastic humbly smouldered in a clump on the ground while ashes and fragments of newsprint scattered themselves on SE 22nd Avenue. Within a day or two the box was unnecessarily replaced with a new one.

The War On Truth
'Americans live in an eternal present' The verboten truth is that the unprovoked attack on Iraq and the looting of its resources is America's 73rd colonial intervention.

Americans, says Time magazine, live in "an eternal present". The point is, they have no choice. The "mainstream" media are now dominated by Rupert Murdoch's Fox television network, which had a good war. The leading 20 internet sites are now owned by the likes of Fox, Disney, AOL Time Warner and a clutch of other giants. Just 14 companies attract 60 per cent of the time all American web-users spend online.

Weapons Of Mass Stupidity
How stupid are we, finally, how easy to fool? Fox News is run by the insidious Roger Ailes -- image merchant for Nixon, Reagan and Bush senior, producer for Rush Limbaugh, newsman never -- and Fox is not what it seems to be. It's not a news service, certainly, nor even the sincere voice of low-rent nationalism. It's a calculated fraud, like the president who ducked the draft during Vietnam, and even welshed on his National Guard commitment, but who puts on a flight suit stenciled "Commander-in-chief" and plays Douglas MacArthur on network TV.

I often broke the rules, never getting caught, but this goes to far. Today's soldiers are likely so heavily monitored in everything they say or do that there is no chance for any freedom of opinion.

Corporate Media/Military Cognitive Dissonance over Outspoken Soldiers
The same troops and officers who had been garrulous and outspoken in previous visits were quiet, and most declined to speak on the record. During a visit to Fallujah, a small city about 30 miles west of Baghdad, military officials expressed intense chagrin about the bad publicity. And they slammed the ABC reporters for focusing on the soldiers' criticism of Rumsfeld, Bush and other officials and implying that they are unwilling to carry out their mission.

Nearby, Pfc. Jason Ring stood next to his Humvee. "We liberated Iraq. Now the people here don't want us here, and guess what? We don't want to be here either," he said. "So why are we still here? Why don't they bring us home?"
