Denialism that kills.
John Kerry and John Edwards were interviewed by Leslie Stahl on 60 Minutes, Sunday July 11. She asked Edwards whether he made a deal with Kerry. Then she gruelled Kerry whether Edwards is a better campaigner who could upstage him. The small talk ignored the country's desperate state.
This sunday, there will be over 2,500 house parties across the nation hosted by MoveOn.org showing the new documentary "Outfoxed", exposing the right-wing propaganda spin of the network and Rupert Murdoch's war on journalism.

TUCSON, July 14—Fox News infotainment shock jock Scott Norvell commented on an article he never researched. Without contacting me, the Pentagon or the CNRRC he comes to the conclusion that naming a web server "Gestapo" merely suggests that one is a "geek" and not a white supremacist in an article published on FoxNews.com July 12.
Charles Geshekter, a three-time Fulbright scholar who teaches African History at California State University, Chico, reviews the public hysteria of the public health types in Africa.

How many mistakes can Michael Isikoff make? In his zealous campaign to discredit Fahrenheit 9/11, Newsweek's star investigative reporter has already made at least seven errors, distortions and selective omissions of crucial information.
Let's take them one by one.
Congress just issued a report blaming the war on faulty intelligence. Said one senator, "If we had known, we never would have authorized this war."
How about that.

A critical review of Fahrenheit 9/11. In particular, a critique of Moore's moralism.
Soros owned Harken Energy when Bush came on. Did he create Bush like the Bush family created Saddam Hussein? Sure, but Soros and the Bush crew were in the Carlyle Group together, so they're more aligned than the Bush crew ever were to Saddam.
since Michael Moore's newest documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" succeeds even in all of those states where "President" Bush actually won the election in 2000, we want to suggest Michael a new issue to write about. He needs a new "enemy" when Bush is gone, doesn't he? *wink*
Well, we need a massive letter campaign, because as some of us know, Michael is not too keen on dealing with the prison issue, even less with individuals, unless it is Mr. President.

"Michael Moore has welcomed the appearance on the internet of pirated copies of his anti-Bush documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 and claimed he is happy for anybody to download it free of charge." ...its also said that Lions Gate Films respects Moore's descision.
Israeli stole the name of a New Zealander to get a passport. The headline in the newspaper is "The spies who stole my name " why not " The Terrorists who stole my name"? And why do we not see any questions in the article about "Where they planning a terror attack? And when you are at it why not imagine what the headlines could have looked like had it been Arabs.
I believe it was someone on an indymedia site who said Disney might be releasing this movie--"America's Heart and Soul"--at this time as a response to Moore's latest film. That sounds plausible. But, if so, is it an effective reaction? Or is it too transparent?
The president of a company that owns movie theaters in Iowa and Nebraska is refusing to show director Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11."
R.L. Fridley, owner of Des Moines-based Fridley Theatres, says the controversial documentary incites terrorism.
proooof and facts please.
The Newhouses are generally known for their ruthlessness: to call them disagreable would be a terrible understatement. The old godfather of the clan, known to associates and enemies, as Sy, pushed some harsh business practices.
Filmmaker Kent Bye Says the Media is Partially Responsible for the Iraq War--and He Has the Footage to Prove it
For 10 years Tim Llewellyn was the BBC's Middle East correspondent. In this passionately argued polemic he accuses British broadcasters, including his former employer, of systematic bias in covering the Arab-Israeli conflict, giving undue prominence to the views of Jerusalem while disregarding the roots of the crisis. It is the same with the reporting from Iraq.
David Reinhard, the Bush apologist and clueless NeoCon mouthpiece for the Oregonian is at it again. This is the person who, in an earlier editorial said he would be proud and happy to see his son die in combat (no opinion from the son on this one). Let the Big O know that a good documentary is another form of editorial expression; every documentary has a point of view - and, in the case of Fahrenheit 9/11, one that is more valid and better supported by fact than his cheap diatribe, laden with spleen and loaded words.
With so much attention on the Republicans' efforts to help Nader get on the ballot, I want to shine some light on the Democrats' efforts to keep him off.
This is a repost; I read it on ZNet and thought you might enjoy it. This author just skewers the corporate media.

"I tried watching The O'Reilly Factor. I tried watching Hannity shout about Colmes. I tried listening to conservative talk radio. But my frustration at concurrence would build, mounting from exasperation with like-mindedness to a fury of accord, and I'd hit the OFF button." -- P.J. O'Rourke, conservative/libertarian journalist
Michael Moore has lied to you, America. But not in the way many of his critics might have you believe. Moore's new film, Fahrenheit 9/11, has been heralded as a prophetic voice of dissent by supporters and as leftist, fact-twisting, conspiracy-laden propaganda by opponents. In reality, it is little more than a modest and fairly accurate re-presentation of what anybody with basic cable should already know. If Moore can be criticized for anything, it's not that his film goes too far, but that it does not go far enough. A fact, considering Moore's blatant and unapologetic political agenda, that probably has more to do with decisions made by the film's producers than its director.
Insight into the mind of your average middle aged Republican through an argument over Fahrenheit 9/11
The only thing that the whore corporate media has not yet figured out is that by giving us a bit of the truth (such as the article below), they will expose themselves when they desperately try to paint the new 'Bush victory' in November. It should do more than just surprise most of us watching these polls carefully that the antichrist will once again end up in the White House next January, but then again, who cares? If they tell us that he won when it is statistically impossible for him to have won, Joe Flagwaver will just sit back and wait for cognitive dissonance to lull him to sleep once more...
The dangers of diagramming Bush's version of English
speak for those who can't
The death of former president Reagan occurred during an election year and a costly military intervention in the Middle East. It has caused many to recall a bygone era that has been overshadowed by a seemingly more perilous and confusing political climate. The following essay is a reflection--albeit a highly personal one--on those times, and an attempt to come to terms with the overall meaning behind the image.
Indy dead or slow links from indymedia.org home page shows US Shinkage
This movie without any need for trick editing or showing things out context brings to the american public the truth.
I posted yesterday what I thought was an informative post on Kerry's environmental platform, It seems to have been composted, but for what reason? If informed debate about issues is going to be part of the discussion here, it's necessary to look at both sides.
My count says Nader has accomplished his mission.

In the face of many million dollar new fines for pithy language on the air waves, America's appointed VP Richard Cheney exercises his prerogative to abrogate accountaability for any and all violations of law. And this is how I picture the situation.
Review of the movie we are all talking about.
If you are serious about evaluating the current attempt to blame Israel for the Iraq war, Dr. Gold's article, together with commentary from Jared Israel & Francisco Gil-White on it, is must-reading. This appears below.
In the June 28, 2004 issue of Newsweek Magazine, Newsweek writer Michael Isikoff makes completely false and misleading statements about facts and issues contained in Fahrenheit 9/11. Isikoff has also gone on television shows repeating the charges.
The four-day-long drum beat against Michael Moore's film continues. First, Matt Lauer roughed Moore up on a morning show. Then Katy Couric. (What was Michael thinking talking to them!) And now this.
This furtive and sinister dynasty did not just enter the Portland journalist scene, during the early 80s, from New Yorker new money. As we will see in the second part of this expose´, their suffocating presence on American publishing started quite early.
DOJ is sending teams of federal agents and special prosecutors into 15 cities for the rash of violence that hits every summer. But if they were worried about summer crimes, they would have already been there, and would leave far before the elections. Also, these cities are mostly (not all) the liberal areas of conservative swing states, areas that if removed from relevance automatically make the state vote GOP. Take LA out of CA, and you get a republican state. . .
We were supposed to be discussing American deserters fleeing to Canada; instead, he went off on some wild thing about the mayor of Vancouver injecting people with heroin and unless Canada shapes up, "we" will boycott you and destroy your economy, just like "we" did to France.
I said France seemed to be doing fine. He implied that France now looked like Dresden in 1945. I hadn't heard that.

The evidence is that targeting of independent media and critics of the US is widening.
The movie Control Room is a series of raw, off-the-cuff film vignettes, carefully woven together, which give the viewer a ringside seat inside the guts of a frenetic media operation.

A Northwest coalition calls for changes to the commercial and public radio landscape.
Blaming what he called "lazy" reporters for blurring the distinction, Vice President Dick Cheney said that while "overwhelming" evidence shows a past relationship between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaida, the Bush administration never accused Saddam of helping with the Sept. 11 attacks.
