I don't look at t.v. I turned off the radio long ago. All subscriptions I had with any "commercial" newspaper has long been cancelled.
Sgrena had the goods on them, the whole bloody litany of crimes perpetrated by the swaggering Texas psychopath and his Pentagon goons. Her interviews with Falluja's refugees put her in a position to spill the beans on Bush's murderous farce and splatter the headlines across Europe with the real picture of what is going on inside Iraq.
repost of a great new Media Transparency story regarding Christian Zionist influence on US media and foreign policy:
SEE ALSO this Portland Indymedia compilation link on Christianists and Zionism:
Well, here's the White House damage control about the Sgrena story: "U.S. Rejects Italy Jounalist's Claims" That's straight from the horse's mouth, none other than Terence Hunt, "AP White House Correspondent."

CNN's Pentagone-gone-gone correspondent
Here is a Jew talking about the misuse of anti-semetism. I can't wait to see foxnews and the JDL smearing this guy. Maybe they will just focus on Ward Churhill and make sure you never hear about him. This guy could rain on our pro-fascist government's parade like cats and dogs(and is). Meet Norman Finkelstein, targetted for depression and suicide by the fascists, just like his parents.
story has caught fire. Seismologist and Geologists are rushing in from all over the world to witness this event. At this time, the only press release is "Don't worry, [go back to eating grass, you sheep.]"
Q: What is the connection between the recently dismissed coach of the Trailblazers and the long disgraced figure skating champion?

The Giuliana Sscregna Shooting, and the Nature of the Iraqi Insurgency.
Here we have Skolnick going through Gannon's military torture expertise and there is a follow up aside about a murdered judge that is an interesting read. Just another tall tale? Beats anything the mainstream is putting out, fact and/or fiction.
A review of Bill Maher's latest show.
bush working hard
A good summary of the JTTF situation is up at blueoregon. This is exactly what you won't see in the Oregonian or on TV, but is exactly what we need people to see/hear.
After the last election, millions of us stood in disbelief of the reelection of George Bush. This combined with defeats in the House and the Senate handed the entire government to the GOP.
March 4th from 4-6, 37 people came and showed their opposition to the newly proposed Wal Mart in Cedar Mill.
"Dr. Elmasry, we received intelligence reports that the Jewish Defence
League is having two bus loads coming to town this Sunday. We will give you
police protection," the senior local police officer informed me in person.
"You are a man of honour. You have our support." It was not clear if the

Monday, March 7th, and PCC Cascade. This meeting is the only public meeting with the States Police Use of Force Task Force before the report will be submitted to the governor.
Bush's Weird Tour: A Letter to European Friends. Did Bush get anything from his European "charm offensive" in Europe, or was it mostly spin? Read what the French and German papers say -- quite a bit different from the way the mainstream U.S. press is playing it. And Rumsfeld sticks his foot in it, big time, with his embarrassingly ignorant remarks about China.
Gay people want the truth. We want to know if the people that orchestrated the slime ball elections against gays last November, are the same people who are cavorting with male escorts/prostitutes in the White House?

I was watching the news after "Celebrity Fish gutting" was over and was informed that news was BREAKING! Wow, busted I guess from being off kilter for so long. I've heard that sometimes-whole stories break so I wasn't surprised.
After a recruitment commercial for the Navy showing swabbys on the other side of the planet (Out sourcing?) the news reader blathered on for the whole segment and most of the next about Basket ball politics,( who's in who's out, who cares,) in the last few seconds before the news part was over they mentioned 1500 dead Americans in Iraq (No mention of Iraqi dead) and a peeping Tom perping NE Portland. WOW!
Doe's the outcome of a basketball match mean anything to anyone?
A man planning a major terror attack in the US is apprehended by the law enforcement. Yet both the US government and the media are tight lipped about this.
Over all, I guess what he [THE L.A. TIMES] means is relatively obvious: That he can run whatever he wants, distort whatever he desires, lead with whatever his lies. I guess he means that FACTS don't matter, TRUTH is irrelevant, and deceit the order of the day. I guess he means that Americans are pawns, readers are sheep, and people will just keep swallowing whatever the media choose to dish out. I hope you'll tell him he's wrong: 213-237-5000 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We post the headlines so you can get a quick summary of what we thought were the good stories for today. also, we encourage feedback about anything important we missed, particularly local stories of interest to the progressive community
Among American media outlets, only NPR mentioned the Syrian Kurds...
It's been two years in Iraq and 50 percent of the US public still does not understand how the Bush Administration and the US media system manipulates and shapes public opinion. Don't you think it is time to set the record straight and hold the media accountable?
posting the headlines for quick review of yesterday and this mornings news. soliciting feedback on local stories that we miss.
A synopsis and update on the tale of Johnny Gosch? You be the judge. http://mparent7777.blog-city.com/read/1105773.htm
A little flash animation that steps through those 14 signs no one likes to read.
It made American prime time TV news last night, but apparently no where on the web.
What is Syria's role in preventing another Israeli military incursion into Lebanon?
Below is the URL for a call for a week long boycott of industries cracking down on P2P "piracy", as a way to demonstrate the economic impact of the actual purchases said "pirates" actually do engage in.

"The great motorcade," wrote Canadian correspondent Don Murray, "swept through the streets of the city... " but there were no crowds. George W. Bush's imperial procession through Europe took place in a hermetically sealed environment. In Brussels it was, at times, eerie. The procession containing the great, armour-plated limousine (flown in from Washington) rolled through streets denuded of human beings except for riot police. Whole areas of Belgian capital were sealed off before the American president passed." 19 American escort vehicles with the President's car (known to insiders as "the beast"), 200 S.S. agents, 15 sniffer dogs, the Blackhawk helicopter, 10,000+ policemen, various frogmen the Germans mustered for the President's brief visit to the depopulated German town of Mainz to shake hands with Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder. Rhine River closed to all boat traffic. People forced to park far away from their homes--kilometers away--and walk home. Freeways closed for hours on only 'potential' nearness to the unknown Global Idiot Son's path. Public mailboxes removed. People publicly warned keep clear from their own windows/balconies. S.S. wanted to shut down mobile phone network. In disorientation of transportation and access, businesses shut down. Economy collapsed...
Bush should be AFRAID. HE IS the WORLD'S PUBLIC ENEMY #1

white guy tortures brown guy on fox
Anita HST Wife: "I did not hear any bang," she told Kass. She added that Thompson's son, who was in the house at the time, believed that a book had fallen when he heard the shot, according to Kass' report. Now that's interesting: WHY "slightly different"? Because CNN spinned some different CONCLUSION into it????? Stay with the facts!!! Learn from 'Bloggers'!!
Spin defined by Wiki

I got lucky the other day. (No, I'm not talking about that kind of lucky. What do you think I am, a "family values" Republican at convention?)

Yeah, I know, this never would have happened if I had been listening to KBOO...
The so called mainstream media continues to bleed away the little creditability that remains.
Recently, I've noticed a disturbing deterioration in the quality of reportage from the BBC online (http://www.news.bbc.co.uk). Time was when they could be depended on for an authentically independent viewpoint, not obviously shilling on behalf of American corporate or government interests. Lately I've started to really have my doubts about them.
Some time ago FPF published an item about this 'friendly fire' killings, among others based on information from the BBC's Kate Adie who openly said the Pentagon c.s. was out to kill 'un american' journalists.
activists will never be taken seriously by the ruling class
Since George W. Bush has taken office, we have seen many things from him:
a red herring to take energy out of the Prostitute-White House connection
What the hell happened this week? Some notes from the drunken blur.
Henry the Intern takes a wander through the news network transcripts and comes back with the number of segments and mentions of Jeff Gannon in the last month.
Artifact, found in the Blogosphere
To see how the Bushies stack up against former regimes of a particular bent, read on.
When CBS goofed up, people were fired and quit in disgrace. But when dozens, maybe hundreds of news outfits run Bush administration-made propaganda posing as legitimate news reports, nobody has to resign. What gives here?
Well, what a surprise, Bill Maher had senator Biden on last night, and although Bill Maher loved saying "the white house has ties to gay prostitution", senator Biden asked a more important question. Knowing the "threat of terrorism" has made bush and his cult looking in their shorts for osamama ben forgotten, "how is one able to get a pass from the secret service?"(he did not say gay, because he said that was another issue---yes, it's another issue of hypocricy and lies)
