Bicyclist struck by bicycle-driver does "right" thing
Back on January 20th, a 68 year old man was riding his bicycle, when a young female driver blew a red light, then thumped the bicyclist, sending him careening to the pavement. Since I am, myself, of similar age, I know that had to hurt. From this point, the story becomes a little cloudy, to say the least. First, my curiosity was piqued when I noticed how the press, and the citizen loving Clackamas County Sheriff's Office kept praising the "young" driver, one Amanda WILLARD, for "doing the right thing." Many news articles were printed, and the Sheriff's Office put out an inordinate number of bulletins praising her, because, she actually stopped, and asked the poor, old, dazed victim if he was alright, before getting into her car, and leaving him, seated on the curb.

This is Hell with Chuck Mertz
Chuck Mertz and "This is Hell" manage a distinct style of serious reportage and casual humor. indeed, for a decade the legally-blind host has broadcast a rowdy mix of college student attitude, scholarly journalism and in-depth reporting. The show itself has been host to such names, luminous and otherwise, as Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Greg Palast, John Perkins, Fatima Bhutto, Michael Moore, Patrick and Alexander Cockburn, et. al.

Loser John McCain: the Horrible Truth about YOU
Did you ever wonder why after each victory of John McCain in the primaries the media serves the same images of a few dozen people "cheering"? The answer: McCain is supported by as many people as George W. Bush, i.e. 1 pct of the population. He did not manage to ever break the 1,000 barrier for an audience, including the large share of paid campaign personnel.

A message to Iranians: In response to the New York Times
This is an article that I found on the web here
 http://www.payvand.com/news/08/feb/1165.html
I contacted the author Kuros and he does not mind me reposting it on IMC

His article is in response to the big corporate news (NYT) propaganda spin and manipulation of the Iranian "people"

Kuros raises a good point (quote) "it reveals that U.S. foreign policy is directed at the Iranian people and not just its leadership, as media propaganda and U.S. administration officials (including George Bush) to date consistently claim."

NTIA Fraud=Privatization of Airwaves...see article on truth behind the scam!
As the truth behind the NTIA fraud unfolds, I will alert IndyMedia readers so that they can spread the word. Bits from the last post, to bring others up to date, are followed by an AP article on the "auctioning of the airwaves", or the selling of the spectrum (for you Aldo!)...

A local company has been contracted by the US Government to facilitate massive fraud on the American public, in the forced move from analog to digital TV. This topic was raised in December, with few responses, but since the kick-off was 1/1/08, maybe people are more interested.

The Wikipedia bit on NTIA is below...notice that the person running it is a Bush appointee from 2006...this program is not designed with the interests of America in mind. Think DOJ, EPA, Dept. of the Interior...you get the drift...Bush Fraud!!

The official Government description of the program is available on my previous IM post, where you can see the easy-outs that are written into the program, ...sure to guarantee a clusterfuck that will make Hurricane Katrina seem like small change!!

Read the stated purpose behind the NTIA analog/digital fraud, then read the article about what is really going on. Still looking for the article on the issue of the non-urban areas being very poorly served by the converter-box scam, since they rely on relays from network broadcasts...it's a doozy!! More on that later...

Styve

PS - The Bush Administration is out to destroy this country, for a profit, and that should be the lens through which people see this and any program these war criminals foist on the country!

On Aug. 11, 2008, activist Russell Mokhiber picketed the NYT's office and demanded that Kristol, who was recently named to its Op Ed Page, meet with severely wounded Iraq War veteran, Tomas Young. Young is featured in Phil Donahue's film, "Body of War." Being a repulsive Neocon, like Kristol, means you never have to say you're sorry.

Bin Laden Boogieman Story Just Too Good to Let Die
"Bin Laden" showed up yet again last week to help out the Bush Administration on the eve of the important Iowa presidential caucus vote. Now a November 2007 Benazir Bhutto interview with BBC's David Frost has surfaced in which Bhutto claims that Bin Laden is dead. Already, Duke University Bin Laden expert, Bruce Lawrence, stated two years ago that he believed Bin Laden was likely dead. Nevertheless, BBC chose to withhold this information and mislead the public by deleting this part of Bhutto's statement. Bin Laden has been a very useful Boogieman to the New World Order, and it's hard to give up a great story.

Thousands of people across the continent have weighed in to say NO to the FCC's plan to allow further consolidation of the media. Indeed, millions. More than 3 million people told them NO last year when they tried this. And thousands more spoke up this time. And still, the rubber-stamping took place today. In spite of overwhelming public opposition, the FCC voted today to give all of our stories away to a tiny, control-freaking, corporate elite. Why?

In defeat, Chavez makes liars of US press.
The US Press has recently launched a huge anti-Chavez media blitz. A common thread to these hit pieces is Chavez' "authoritarian" tendencies, and characterization of him as anti-democratic and a "dictator". However, in the narrowest of defeats (~2%), there are no planeloads of operatives flying in to stage riots in the counting houses, there will be no suits brought before a fixed Supreme Court, and there won't be hateful rhetoric calling certain people, "too stupid to vote".

The day before Sunday's constitutional reform referendum in Venezuela, one can just feel the frustrations of the commercial media's big players that there is really not much they can do, despite all their supposed power, to affect the outcome. Nevertheless, their clamor about Chávez' possible "constitutional coup" (so ironic given their lack of concern over the very real military coup there six years ago  http://www.narconews.com/threedays.html) has been on the rise all week. Here are some of the most notable lies, manipulations and half-truths from Saturday's editorials and news articles:

FCC Hearings in Seattle: Report Back II (After Soup)
I just got back from Seattle, where I attended the 6th and final opportunity for the public to confront the FCC on plans to allow further consolidation of the corporate media. Knowing that there is a vibrant and independent culture of media activism in the NW, the commissioners in favor of the sweeping changes resorted to a sneaky ploy: They gave the public only a few days' notice prior to the hearing. They figured this would prevent us from being able to attend the hearings, and thus we would be as silenced from the debate as they would like us to be from the public airwaves. As you will see, the ploy did not work.
