Reshaping corporate media with focused, "messaged boycotting"
While many of us avoid purchases which benefit businesses engaged in activities we don't condone, how many of us write to them to let them know that we are and why we are boycotting? Focusing on sponsors of biased and antidemocratic corporate media, especially spin/propaganda shows posing as objective, "fair and balanced," the money trail can more readily be detoured. Examples, links.

The Inner Workings of Alternative Media: Part 3
I wanted to see what motivated people working in alternative media, as well as what they needed to help support their efforts, to ensure a healthy alternative to mainstream media for us all. In the last part of this 3-part article, (for parts 1 and 2, visit http://resist.ca/~kirstena/pagealtpress.html), I continue with interviews about alternative media with some of the folks that produce it. I interviewed Bradley Allen (Free Radio Santa Cruz and the Santa Cruz Independent Media Center (IMC)), Lance Scott (Co-founder of Eat the State! (ETS!)), Christa Donner (Ladyfriend and Free Advice Zines), an editor from a prisoner newsletter that goes out with prisoner book deliveries who wanted to remain anonymous, Chuck Munson (Coordinating webmaster for Infoshop.org and librarian), and via phone, Tim Walker (campaigns manager for Adbusters Magazine).

Patriotic Correctness: the Hiroshima cover-up
This is a repost of an article originally published to portland indymedia in March 2002, in conjunction with the Hiroshima Flame Interfaith Pilgrimage. [For voluminous coverage of that event in audio, photos, and text, see portland indymedia's special "dharmawalk" page, here.] This article, which is drawn from the book, "Hiroshima in America: Fifty Years of Denial", shows how the media and government have covered up the full story of the U.S. atomic attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, then and since. Lessons from this historic episode are applicable to the current "war on terrorism" even more so now than when the article originally appeared. Reposted to mark Hiroshima Day: August 6.

Bush puts us in a room of fun-house mirrors
The impulse to control the press hardly originated with George W. Bush, but his administration has been less inclined than any in memory to echo Thomas Jefferson's famous declaration: "The basis of our government being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter."

In The Wake of Kerry's Speech, the Conservative Mainstream Press Hit Men Go To Work
It's interesting to watch the way that CNN, Fox, NBC, and the rest of the mainstream media these days...

"He gave a very impressive speech, but it's important to remember how carefully staged these speeches are..."

"He did a great job of trying to outplay the right to the right..."

"Kerry... A whole bunch of gibberish..."

"It sounded like a temp agency saying 'Help is on the way.'"

"This paranoid, Michael Mooer mentality..."

He threw the Holy books on floor along with passport records and family photographs and had is filthy dog inside the house. The place looked like a US Marine raid on a house in Baghdad. That's why I hit him with a basebvall bat. JP is undercover CIA agent. The PDX has no right to cover-up this kind of activity, especially since he is openly disseminating Nazi propaganda on the IMC. We demand this story gett out here or we will get it out elsewhere. JP is a COP!!!!!

Dr. Robert Root-Bernstein, who held a MacArthur Prize fellowship from 1981 to 1986, is associate professor of physiology at Michigan State University. Root-Bernstein made a thorough study of the AIDS literature, and has published several controversial articles. He could also not find any evidence to back up the claim that HIV is the cause of AIDS, that AIDS is a new disease, or that it is contagious. AIDS, according to him a multi-causal condition, could also be caused by well known risk factors.

In 1984 when the test was first announced by Gallo at a press conference, I dutifully ran down like other active gay males and got tested. I tested positive then and have every year since.

Bad science, Bad Journalism -- The HIV retrovirus: Discovery or invention?
Have you seen "The Truman Show" starring Jim Carrey? Carrey plays Truman, who is the unknowing star of a reality television show transmitted throughout the world. Truman is happily living his perfect life in a perfect suburb with a perfect wife until he begins to catch some clues that something just isn't right. The film is about his process of discovering his entire life, and all of his physical surroundings, are fabricated. The island he lives on is the world's largest television set, viewable from space. Everyone is in on it; Truman is monumentally deceived. His wife, mother, best friend, co-workers and thousands of townspeople are nothing but actors.

The paradoxical skinny on sex
The science of AIDS and HIV-related behavior is paradoxical and enigmatic. How can someone be HIV-antibody positive for a decade or more and never develop AIDS? Why do people who have died of AIDS appear not to have HIV in their bodies? Why does HIV not behave like other sexually transmitted pathogens? How can one individual have thousands of high-risk sexual encounters with an HIV-positive person and never become HIV infected or develop AIDS and why is it that another individual can have a single sexual encounter and acquire HIV?

For a number of years HIV/AIDS has been presented as an equal opportunity destroyer that is thwarted by condom use for every type of sexual encounter and a clean syringe for every intravenous drug use. Through a high-powered media campaign America has repeatedly received the message that "AIDS does not discriminate." Locally, we have seen the image of a middle class white woman with the ominous tag line of the sponsoring agency, The Cascade AIDS Project, below : "IT'S NOT OVER." The subtext clearly reading: "Beware white, heterosexual America!"
