Appeals Court Rejects More Media Consolidation - Stephen Lendman

In six editions of "The Media Monopoly" and subsequent update titled, "The New Media Monopoly," Ben Bagdikian explained how deregulation let major media corporations consolidate to oligopoly size.

Since 1983, the number of corporations owning most newspapers, magazines, book publishers, recorded music, movie studios, television and radio stations shrunk from 50 to a handful, including Time-Warner, Disney, News Corp., Viacom, Comcast, and Bertelsmann AG.

Today, fact and fiction have been merged to such an alarming degree with adept perception control that to be able to rationally separate them, to tell what is mere imagery of the Mighty Wurlitzer vs. the actual interconnected causal reality (cause and effect) of statecraft, can be as uncongenial to the cognitive mind as depicted by Plato for the prisoners bred in the underground cave since birth. The fact that the most brilliant minds remain unable to tell that 9/11 was an 'Operation Canned Goods' even ten years into its vile enactment while America descends into a police-state in presumed reaction to it, demonstrates that it is not the brain hardware which is malfunctioning, but the brain software! http://tinyurl.com/mightywurlitzer

corrupted corporate media

Olbermann's Sacking Shifts US Media Further Right - by Stephen Lendman

Make no mistake. He didn't quit. He was pushed, the final straw perhaps being the January 18 FCC-approved Comcast-NBC Merger. Its chairman/CEO Brian Roberts co-chaired the 2000 Republican Convention host committee, and COO Stephen Burke/now NBC Universal CEO tilts heavily to Republicans. According to Public Citizen and Think Progress, he raised at least $200,000 for Bush's 2004 campaign, served on his Council on Science and Technology, and may wish to make MSNBC another Fox, despite pledging no "interference with NBC Universal's news operations."

25. Prisoners Still Brutalized at Gitmo

There it was in big bold caps, the main headline on the front page of
Monday’s Philadelphia Inquirer: BEYOND BELIEF. Had Obama
created a jobs program? Had Martians
landed in New Jersey
, or among Florida’s frozen oranges?

No, it was an Eagles story. Under the headline was a color photo of running back DeSean Jackson prancing toward the winning touchdown in the final seconds of Sunday’s game against the New York Giants, at New Meadowlands Stadium in North Jersey. (Don’t ask me why an NYC team makes its home in Jersey.) The football game was big news because the Eagles, led by quarterback Michael Vick, the former dog-slaying outcast, had scored 28 points in the last eight minutes of the game.
In America, victory=redemption. That’s in case you were wondering why animal lovers are no longer dogging Vick.

In the wake of the Wikileaks takedown, it's clear we need safer ways to propagate knowledge

Freenet is a P2P network similar to Bittorrent or Napster (the old Napster), except it's secure and anonymous.

Now is a good time to learn to use Freenet to create safer networks for sensitive information. I've put up three copies of Cablegate into Freenet, at the URLs below. They will work once you have Freenet installed.

To get Freenet, go to http://freenetproject.org

The Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration's (NTIA) Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP), funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, provides grants to expand broadband access and adoption in communities across the U.S. in order to increase jobs, spur investments in technology and infrastructure, and provide long-term economic benefits.

the myth of the liberal media

The Liberal Media: Rest in Peace - by Stephen Lendman

The New York Times never qualified, run exclusively as a voice for power and privilege. The same, of course, holds for virtually all mainstream publications, including the Nation magazine, suppressing, sanitizing, and distorting truths, betraying its readers since 1865.

Its founding prospectus said it "will not be the organ of any party, sect, or body. It will, on the contrary, make an earnest effort to bring to the discussion of political and social questions a really critical spirit, and to wage war upon the vices of violence, exaggeration, and misrepresentation by which so much of the political writing of the day is marred."

more proof of major media bias

Harvard Study Documents Media Bias and Misreporting - by Stephen Lendman

This writer's November 2009 article titled "Paid Lying: What Passes for Major Media Journalism" also discussed it in detail, accessed through the following link:

http://sjlendman.blogspot.com/2009/11/paid-lying-what-passes-for-major-media.html

It called major media journalism biased, irresponsible, and sensationalist - misreporting, distorting, exaggerating, misstating, or suppressing vital truths - serving state and corporate interests over the common good, including bankers controlling the nation's money, unpunished corruption at the highest levels, democracy for the select few, sham elections, a de facto one party state, imperial wars, occupation, and torture.
