CNN Live AM September 11, 2001 NO 757 Hit the Pentagon! Mr. Kean and Mr. Hamilton are invited to Participate in "A Real 9/11 Commission".
A May 2006 Zogby U.S. poll found that 42% of adults polled believe the U.S. government and the 9/11 Commission "concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence" that contradicts the official explanation of the attacks. 9/11 Commission chairs Kean and Hamilton were upset with their own commission.

disaster capitalism and crisis hype
Stock market movements are always reported in absolute "point" movements, which makes it easy to report "records being broken" or "the biggest drop ever" or whatever sells papers and radio ads. It's not too hard to put such reports in context but ordinary people don't usually know how. Economics is a field full of lies and ulterior motives and it's tricky to pull any relevant information out of it.

it has been interesting to check in with people after the RNC and DNC to see how they are doing. as we all know, much has happened and there is much to reflect upon in our further actions.

here is a little glimpse at some of the effects the protests have had on the corporate media. if anything, it might have shaken the realities of the people that grease the wheels, making them question what is really going on and what they are missing out on.

Rebutting Lies and Misconceptions About Anarchists and the DNC/RNC Protests
Over the past two weeks in Denver and St. Paul, thousands of anarchists and other folks have come together to protest the conventions being held by the two wings of the Corporate Party. These protests were the culmination of almost two years of organizing. Organizers arranged not just protests, but many other events as well. Their efforts were met with severe and significant police repression, with over 800 people being violently arrested by the authorities and many others being violently attacked and terrorized. In response to these events, the police, the corporate media, and others have said many things about anarchists involved in these protests. While many of the comments on numerous Internet discussion boards have been supportive of anarchists and critical of the police, there have also been many lies and misconceptions said and written about anarchists. This FAQ is an effort to address and rebut those anti-anarchist words.

whOregonian Chases Cyclists
So... in what one can only think is the shaming of the whOregonian newspaper into running a full-page photo and headline about the "opposing" story about a car giving a bicyclist a hard time, the headline is now "Driver chases Cyclist"... again... forget several times in the last 12 months that "Driver kills cyclist with car"... and forget that days ago we had "Cyclist CLUBS driver with his bike".

Things we know:

1) The Oregonian hates cycling and would love to turn back the clock.
2) The Oregonian loves to sell newspapers... flashy headlines sell.
3) What the Oregonian ADVOCATES, based on its reach/distribution is INCITED.

Let's take it step by step...

1.. We know based on the phraseology of the headlines and the content of the stories (and anyone who has every glanced at an Oregonian) that the rag is a conservative/PBA stronghold. It is clear that from their perspective that everyone should obey "the law" ... and that the law has no context other than that which is "good" for everyone. Never mind the fact that there may be any differences between the people that pay for the laws and the people needing to obey them (ie... bicyclists). In the minds of their editors, like many people stuck in their own little boxes, everyone should obey stop signs and lights, even if they make no sense for that type of transport.... everyone should, in effect, regress to the mean. It doesn't matter that if you hit a cyclist who ran a light/sign with a car that you do not die, but they do... as opposed to if a car runs a light/sign and hits another car.. et cetera. It's similar to the NIMBY crap..... e.g. "If I have to sit in traffic, then you have to sit in traffic." BORING... ... OLD FASHIONED!

Cyclists do not generally obey signs/lights because it makes no sense for that type of transportation. Many car drivers in portland do not obey stop signs because, (TA DA!) the stops signs make no sense where they are. Somehow there is this insistence by these conservative newspaper editors (who choose the headlines, by the way) that cyclists "just need to follow the rules." Who made the rules? What types of vehicles were the rules made for? These questions, especially in the oil crunch, lay naked the fundamental problems with government, capitalism, the status quo. Those, like cyclists, who conserve resources and reap benefits, versus those who consume resources and sit in traffic. That which is outside the "paradigm" and makes more sense, but frustrates those stuck in the box (not the green one), versus those who are bitter because their way is obviously not sustainable.

2) I love the word "War" below:

War between bikes and cars? Not in Portland Bike culture vs. car culture? Nope. Despite two wild and widely publicized confrontations between cyclists and motorists this month, Portlanders who cruise around on four wheels are not out to get those pedaling on two -- or vice versa -- Portland police and others say.

Over at BikePortland there is a good set of postings about what they term a media "frenzy" about conflicts between bikes and cars. I think the word "frenzy" takes the word "war" and associated headlines and full-page pictures too much at face value. There is no frenzy.... it is very well planned.... or at least, reactionary. The initial headline that the whOregonian ran about 'CLUBBING' was an attempt to discredit cycling in Portland. The popularity of that topic caused them, as well as OPB (wisely) to continue to sell stuff.

My point here is that any buzz is good buzz. The whOregonian may have exposed itself nakedly as anti-bike culture, but that realization especially for the readers which it leads around by the nose, will quickly vanish, if anyone ever realized, down the memory hole.

3) If I were one to mince words I would say the initial article about 'CLUBBING' with a bicycle was "irresponsible". "Irresponsible" is a word that people use as a proxy for evil. Take heart conservatives, your fearless leader McBama.. Clinton ...OCain..... I mean, Bush would say that this newspaper is merely creating a discussion around the issue. However, the truth is that the Oregonian's initial article and obvious condemnation of cyclists, INCITES the car driving public to harm against cyclist. For worse (I can't bring myself to say "better") the Oregonian's level of readership gives it a status-quo or status of reliability in the mainstream community. When it essentially says that "Bikers are bad" in one article, the driving public feels sanctioned and goes out CREATES more antagonism. When it turns around and says, "but a drivers sometimes do bad stuff too", it sells more papers, but the damage is already done to the community. The is no coincidence between the level of antagonism in the community during the period of these articles by the Oregonian... the Oregonian's articles THEMSELVES are the ones that CREATE and SANCTION the antagonism.

The fact that the, essentially, third article says .. "but there really is no 'war'" could/should have very well come from a staff lawyer at the whOregonian advising them that THEY THEMSELVES MAY BE HAVE INCITED the violence and antagonism seen immediately following their first article. Creating the illusion of even handedness after the success of creating a stir.

So it is not irresponsibility which allows this series of full-page headlines and pictures, but a depraved indifference to human life. Car drivers kill bikers... bikers do not kill car drivers. To the Oregonian's editors it is just a question of who finishes the morning/afternoon commute first, to the bikers of Portland it is a question of who finishes it at all.

Hatchet Job When is a hatchet a blunt instrument? Imagine this, if you can: Andre the Giant, Lou Ferrigno, Arnold Schwarzenegger, or more probably one of their incredible fantasy movie characters lifting a 20lb bike over their head and clubbing a poor schmuck repeatedly. Hard to believe... .. but, at least possible with the strength of 3 men in one. Incredible perhaps? Well credibility is definitely the issue here. The latest whOregonian full front-page photo and headline reads: "Cyclist clubs driver with his bike"; a very blunt hatchet job. Does anyone remember the full page photos and headlines that they ran every time a biker was killed by a car in Portland: "Driver kills biker with his car" ? No? Well, that's because they never ran such a headline.
