VOTER NEWS SERVICE warrants an investigation!
WHY THROW OR RIG AN ELECTION BEFOREHAND, WHEN YOU CAN SIMPLY 'PERFORM' THE CORPORATE OUTCOME YOU WANT ON NATIONAL FAKE T.V., VIA 'PROJECTIONS' (WITHOUT ANY CONNECTION TO ANYTHING), AND LATER, YOU CAN COMPLETELY IGNORE OR RETROACTIVELY CHANGE VOTE TALLIES TO FIT WHAT PERFORMED TELEVISION ANCHORS SAID HAPPENED.
The news networks don't just report election news, they create it. But do they also conspire to control election results?
This scenario did not originate in my imagination. The authors of Votescam, The Stealing of America, James and Kenneth Collier (both deceased) chronicled vote rigging from 1970 to 1992, that followed a similar scheme. The Colliers also included government officials, such as employees of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), as players in this decades-old scam. Media critics have long complained about an unethical relationship between the CIA and the news networks. --- BILL HEADLINE was VNS's executive director during the notorious 2000 Bush - Gore presidential election.

Q. What's the difference between the Vietnam War and the Iraq War?
Throughout the debate, John Kerry, for his part, looks and sounds a bit like a haunted tree. But at least he's not a lying, sniggering, drink-driving, selfish, reckless, ignorant, dangerous, backward, drooling, twitching, blinking, mouse-faced little cheat. And besides, in a fight between a tree and a bush, I know who I'd favour.
The attack against the free internet continues: Republican campaign tactics plummet to new low
The Associated Press (AP) will be the sole source of raw vote totals for the major news broadcasters on Election Night. However, AP spokesmen Jack Stokes and John Jones refused to explain to this journalist how the AP will receive that information. They refused to confirm or deny that the AP will receive direct feed from voting machines and central vote tabulating computers across the country. But, circumstantial evidence suggests that is exactly what will happen.

Michael Burke, 25, a freelance assistant cameraman, was working on "Renovate My Family," which deals with both home and personal improvement, according to Carlsbad police Lt. Don Rawson and a Fox publicist who asked not to be identified.
A newspaper delivery driver found Burke's body about 3 a.m. yesterday in a southbound lane of Carlsbad Boulevard at Breakwater Lane, north of Poinsettia Lane, Lt. Kelly Cain said.
Investigators initially thought Burke was the victim of a hit-and-run, but a close examination of the body revealed wounds that might not have been caused by a vehicle, Cain said.

Facing advertiser defections, a viewer boycott and a plummeting stock price, as well as strong opposition from Democrats, Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. scrapped its plan to air a film that attacks the 1970s-era antiwar activities of Sen. John F. Kerry, and will instead run a special produced by its news division incorporating parts of the movie.

Sick of the daily bombardment of polls showing Kerry running "neck-and-neck" with Bush? Feeling demoralized? Don't be! Most of the polls are a bunch of baloney. Here are seven reasons not to trust the polls -- along with some insights into why Big Media chieftains oppose and fear the Kerry/Edwards ticket. (Did you know that John Kerry and John Edwards OPPOSE media consolidation?)
President George W. Bush notched his first debate victory early Sunday morning, winning handily in a fourth presidential debate that was kept secret from his Democratic rival, Sen. John Kerry.
June Lockhart, who starred in the TV series "Lassie," from 1958 to 1964 and co-star, Jon Provost, who was Timmy Martin in the series from 1957-1964, appear in this late 1950s promotional photo with Lassie. The original series lasted until 1971 in prime-time, and until 1974 in first-run syndication.

Whether or not you agree with Larry Flynt or are a reader of Hustler (I buy about one issue every two years... for the articles, of course), Larry Flynt has done much to defend first amendment rights in the USA. His latest book, "Sex, Lies, and Politics", is an excellent tome that exposes the hypocricy of so-called "conservatives."
As Sinclair prepares to air its anti-Kerry show in its 60+ media outlets, preempting regular programming and giving its local stations no choice in the matter, Michael Moore's attempt to present a PAY-FOR-VIEW SPECIAL prior to the presidential election hits a snag.
The New York Times is having some problems maintaining Freedom of the Press.
Abortion might be a crime in most states. Gay people could be thrown in
prison for having sex in their homes. States might be free to become
mini-theocracies, endorsing Christianity and using tax money to help spread
the gospel. The Constitution might no longer protect inmates from being
brutalized by prison guards. Family and medical leave and environmental
protections could disappear.
Scandal-hit Fox News moved yesterday to fire an employee who says she was sexually harassed by Bill O'Reilly - but wants a judge to declare the canning isn't retribution.

A sweep was conducted, promptly picking up all local news anchors and editors. They were placed in a pit...of pit bulls. Hot lava was poured into the screaming, barking pit. All of the newspersons' ex-lovers and spouses lined the steaming pit, howling, "Remember that time you...!"
He's not useless to those who seek to monopolize our airwaves and breach campaign donation and fairness laws, but he IS useless in that he does not act on behalf of the American public that owns the airwaves. Why doesn't the ACLU take this to court and suspend everything until it renders a verdict (which would safely curb the entire situation until after the election)?

What about classifying countries on the degree of white racism against Asians, Blacks? What about rating countries on how anti-Palistinian they are? How anti-homosexual, anti-lesbian, anti-transsexuals, etc.? I'll tell you why because the informal policies of the Likud party and the American corporate state will use the broad brush of 'anti-semetism' to slander those until they are in line with the global US/Likudnik fascism.
Anti-semetisim is hardly a priority issue in this world. Anti-Likudnik is! What they are really interested in finding ways to judge other places in some indirect way if they are anti-Likudnik. Then they can plaster it in the CIA owned corporate media, and then use the 'artificial outrage' to legitimate something they were going to do anyway: have the U.S. sanction or invade them or something, until they support US pro-Likud imperialism.

The American public should be better informed by and better represented in the media. Time for affirmative action laws in the media as well as FULL DISCLOSURE for all journalists and news commentators re: their ethnicity, religion, voting records, and citizenship.

Federal regulators proposed a record indecency fine of nearly $1.2 million Tuesday against Fox Broadcasting Co. for an episode of its reality series ``Married by America'' that included graphic scenes from bachelor and bachelorette parties.
The Federal Communications Commission said the material, which featured male and female Las Vegas strippers in a variety of sexual situations, was indecent and patently offensive, intended to ``pander to and titillate the audience.''
FCC commissioners voted unanimously to fine each of the 169 Fox TV stations that aired the program $7,000. Fox has 30 days to appeal the fines, which total $1,183,000.

Let The Oregonian know how DISGUSTED you are with the timing, and ill motives, of the supposedly non-partisan expose of David Wu.
In stunner, FEC says Ohio focus group will pick next president. While the FEC's decision to place so much power in the hands of a focus group is undeniably controversial, one FEC official argued that it is not without precedent: "After all, nine people decided the 2000 election, too."
Come hear the truth the corporate media didn't cover about the protests against the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City from Portland activists!
the oregonian must prove, not merely claim, that no
republican (especially the ameri campaign) had
anything to do with the expose of wu which was printed
3 weeks until the election . . . Oregonian endorses Goli Ameri . . . this morning's paper carried an inexplicable front page feature article on a single unresolved personal incident 28 years in Wu's past. Why? You do the math.

Anarchy is not the answer for activists or independent media outlets that take their business of reform seriously. Independent Media groups and activists around the country (no matter how loosely organized) can not afford the luxury of either acting like, or being labeled, anarchists.
just in advance of its 30th anniversary, a classic situationist prank has been translated into English.

W is coming to southern Oregon. And he plans to sleep in the tiny town of Jacksonville on Thursday night after his rally in Central Point. Rather than submit to the "free speech cage" in Central Point, deal with all the traffic and parking headaches, we are organizing a big unwelcome rally in Jacksonville.
There are two types of techniques to get the right results in an election :
Type 1 - making sure you count the votes
Type 2 - any other techniques
Even the worst type 1 technique is x-times more powerful than the best Type 2 technique.
The most powerful technique ever created is e-vote (Diebold machines, internet vote,etc).
Citizens, beware!!!! Your civil right's mean nothing to a small town news-paper with lots of money, lack of crime and the greedy urge to sell juicy paper's to the masses. They feel NO NEED to respect a person's right to remain unidentified or just plain left alone!
How, you ask, do I know? It happened to me. A reporter from my local news paper approached me and started questioning me about a brutal murder that occured earlier that morning. I hadn't even know about it until he told me and proceeded to ask me leading questions, then identified himself as a reprter.
Big Deal, you say! Think again. The very next morning I found the headline that would alter my life in way I never imagined, "****** man found stabbed to death", it read. My heart sank when I turned the page and saw my name in print quoted as saying that, "I have noticed gang activity in the area." Hang on, it gets worse! A convienent map pin-pointing our complex was placed right next to my so-called comments. Not only did I now fear reprocutions from my heavily gang populated complex, I also felt violated and shocked that a reporter would blatantly ignore my specific request that he not use my name in his article!
