BS 5 News has learned who's behind those anti-war posters using Pat Tillman's picture. It's an artist who is also an assistant professor with a Chicano Studies project at ASU. John Leanos says he doesn't think the message is "anti-war." He says he respects Tillman, and he simply wanted the posters to be thought-provoking about the tragic decisions made in Afghanistan.
Reports from the BBC News agency say that a bulge in the back of President Bush's jacket has triggered rumors that he was wired to receive audio instruction during the TV debate with John Kerry in Miami. The Seattle Times has a story on it too and has been following up on it.
Note past instance of Bush being wired. Note the extreme paranoia of Bush Administration about camera angles and 'frequencies' of recording equipment during many staged events such as these. Examples follow:

NEW YORK - Who's the kingpin, Al Franken or Bill O'Reilly? If Franken had his way, the answer would be decided with a bowling ball.
On his radio show Wednesday, the satirist-commentator challenged the Fox News commentator to a "friendly" bowling match.
A collection of conservative critiques of Dubya
The Republican face of the bipartisan propaganda machine is gearing up against Nader, now that it's becoming clearer and clearer that Nader's prediction is coming true -- he threatens Bush's chances more than Kerry's in swing states.

Being a foreign correspondent in Baghdad these days is like being under virtual house arrest. Forget about the reasons that lured me to this job: a chance to see the world, explore the exotic, meet new people in far away lands, discover their ways and tell stories that could make a difference.

Cascadia's volcanoes are making national news. Did you know Raineir could blow and destroy Seattle? Mt. Hood could blow and screw up our water supply (as if the forest service's logging projects weren't doing a good enough job at that already). Now that the hurricane threat is over, we need new national disasters to worry about. Since it looks like the danger is over at Mt. St. Helens, better start looking at those other active volcanoes...
indymedia under attack
some lies fromt the vice-presidential debacle
sometimes it's what is not said that is significant
It's an open question whether US corporate media will decide to do some research and decapitate Cheney's fallacies once again hammered out during the debate. A brand-new US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) report has found there's no conclusive evidence that Saddam was protecting the new bin Laden, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, before the invasion of Iraq (in fact, if he was alive, he was in no-fly zone Iraqi Kurdistan, closely monitored by F-16s). Cheney said Zarqawi "was in Baghdad before the war" (false) and is now in Baghdad beheading hostages (instead, there's ample suspicion that "Zarqawi" may now be a cipher used by a number of Iraqi guerrilla groups).
A list of examples of US corporate propaganda.
A few commentators - like Salt Lake City Weekly columnist D.P. Sorensen - write about the subject as if it's common knowledge (20 Mar 2003 Edition):
[snip] When the president appears on public occasions, observers have noticed that he now wears a tiny earpiece. There is speculation that God is telling Mr. Bush what to say, using a celestial wavelength almost impossible for evil-doers to intercept. Some observers think the divine prompting via the earpiece explains the president's propensity for verbal gaffes, such as his comment in February of 2000 that "there is madmen in the world, and there are terror."
Fox News Channel admits reporter posted fake story about Kerry
The US media has been covering for Israel for decades.
Multi-millionaire Movement Rip-Off Artist Michael Moore was recently criticized for his political opportunism by independent anti-war presidential candidate Ralph Nader
Local news grossly underestimates number of people at march...not surprising, but still discouraging.
shake it! shake it! shake it!
Feeble coverage of today's rally.
Let's look at a few examples of the way the world is presented and the way it really is. The occupation of Iraq is presented as "a mess": a blundering, incompetent American military up against Islamic fanatics. In truth, the occupation is a systematic, murderous assault on a civilian population by a corrupt American officer class, given license by its superiors in Washington. Last May, the US Marines used battle tanks and helicopter gunships to attack the slums of Fallujah. They admitted killing 600 people, a figure far greater than the total number of civilians killed by the "insurgents" during the past year. The generals were candid; this futile slaughter was an act of revenge for the killing of three American mercenaries. Sixty years earlier, the SS Das Reich division killed 600 French civilians at Oradour-sur-Glane as revenge for the kidnapping of a German officer by the resistance. Is there a difference?
Don't touch that dial.....

Dealing with morons and bigots is certainly hell. When Jesus freaks are tools of evil. Its good to laugh.
"The rapid ascent of the neoconservatives surprises him.. They didn't march into the Iraq war for Israel or oil but out of idealist utopian motives.. They thought the march to Baghdad was essential for the war against terror and that democracy would flow like water from a fountain!"
One of this Election's Irritating Bullshit Memes
Mazen Dana, an award-winning cameraman of Palestinian descent told his brother before he was murdered by US troops that he had discovered a mass grave dug by U.S. troops to conceal the bodies of their fellow comrades killed in Iraqi resistance attacks. Now finally there is evidence of the most grisly cover-up in US military history.
An Army officer in Iraq who wrote a highly critical article on the
administration's conduct of the war is being investigated for disloyalty --
if charged and convicted, he could get 20 years.
why would you have that dude on?

How Democrats Kicked Nader Off the Oregon Ballot
Summary? The sum of this article (garnered from googling "presidential debate definition") equals one part Absolutely Unacceptable Past and one part Rapidly Deteriorating Present (with a dash of vomit - oops! excuse me! did that get on your computer? Sorry)
Google conforms to Chinese censorship

The Economist magazine and YouGov provide the most useful tracking information in the Presidential race that I've seen. Highly recommended for skeptics of the surveys most commonly cited by the mainstream press.

A single one of these new fines will kill an independent station like KBOO. Last year, KBOO successfully defended itself against the FCC racking up more in legal fees than the fine would have been. This article says the existing fine of $27,500 "is paltry compared to the profits many television and radio station owners earn," but that aint so for KBOO.
There has already been a chilling effect. After the Janet Jackson "incident," the news department discussed and decided to cut the more "earthy" comments I'd recorded covering the Gay Marriage debate -- Andy Seaton, KBOO reporter
The Oregonian candidate endorsement process is a sham!
They don't even bother to talk to third party candidates and yet they feel comfortable telling Oregonians who the best candidate is for a particular race? This is an outrage and should anger all Oregonians regardless of their personal political affiliations or lack of one.
How could anyone imagine the democrats running such a poor campaign that they could not easily unseat George W. Bush from office given his record over the past 4 years. Granted, there were going to be some difficulties in supporting your "opponent" for 4 years and then trying to run against him. Still Bush's failures in both foreign and domestic policy should have made an easy victory for even the worst of candidates. Still, the democrats continue to find ways of running campaigns of incredible ineffectiveness.
Just in From USA Today...women want a macho man to be president to protect us from terror. interestng use of gender in mainstream press.
I have now come to the conclusion that Pdx IMC editorial seriously needs to edit the comments sections, at least on my articles, for flamebait. I feel like the same 10 guys are following my every article with incoherent flamebaits and disrespectful bullshit and it needs to be stopped.
Why is it that just about every animal rights story becomes a feature? Is it time for an animal rights page?
The government in Iraq may actually consist of a loose coalition of Iraq clerics, with offices established in the various political districts of Iraq.
The raid that Al Jazeera reported on the home of Hazim Araji, which the US forces admitted was accidently attacked is reported quite differently in the Washington Post.
Let 'em know why you're boycotting sponsors of The Fox Ruse Network so that they have a chance to take corrective action! The following web page has direct links to email sponsors. Let the sponsors know you don't approve of their support and why
The corporate media makes you appreciate Indymedia much more. These genocidal killers deserve nothing less than the firing squad and until then, a punch in the nose every time you run across one of these in the street. Gone are the days of fawning over their lowly representatives as if they were messangers to some god merely because they might get your ego on the air!! Thank you WR Pitt, this is valuable.
