Pacifica Radio, Rwanda, and DR Congo (tags)
As the stand-off at the Pacifica Radio Foundation offices in Berkeley continues, I have to ask myself why Pacifica matters. Is it worth such a constant struggle? One reason I answer yes is the truth that makes its way onto Pacifica airwaves about Rwanda, DR Congo, the whole Great Lakes Region of Africa, and the US/Pentagon responsibility for the most lethal conflict since World War II. News reports about this are not consistent across the network, or across the broadcasts of different stations, but some of Pacifica's reporting on this fulfills its oft repeated claim to bring you news that no one else will. This is one example: the voice of Keith Harmon Snow, included in this 02.12.2014 KPFK report, is heard on RT and Press TV, but certainly not on NPR, or any major TV network outlet in the U.S. or Canada.

Lê’s “Gangster” Not Just Another Immigration Memoir (tags)
Lê Thi Diem Thúy was brought to this country from Viet Nam by her father in 1978, when she was six, but her book “The Gangster We Are All Looking For,” honored this year by the San Diego Public Library and PBS as the 2011 “One Book, One San Diego,” isn’t your ordinary immigrant’s memoir. Presented as a novel — which allows Lê to tap her childhood for material without having to be bound by literal truth — “Gangster” is written in an almost poetic prose style, rich in nature imagery, characteristic of many Asian writers who learned English as a second language. Introducing, reading from and commenting on the book at the Public Library downtown on February 2, Lê gave a presentation touching on a lot of the issues raised in her book, including culture clashes, the role of the imagination and language as a force that can tear people apart as much as it can bring them together.

And while I recognize the privilege my skin-tone grants me in our society and that I have not taken the types of risks war reporters do, I know enough from having seen what's happened to other journalists over the years that I am not immune from abuses by law enforcement authorities.

WALKOUT - A Critical Review (tags)
Some people have recently called the HBO film, Walkout, as “providing much inspiration to the student walkouts” across America in recent days. Although the film is a historical feature that tells the story of the Chicano people’s struggle against racism and discrimination and is undoubtedly a breakthrough against white supremacy, it is also a telling lesson in the chauvinism of some Chicano activists towards Filipinos in America. This is a case of a majority minority that unconsciously or consciously discriminates against another albeit smaller national minority in advocating for its own self-determination in the United States.
CNN Fears 911 Truth - Cancels Ed Asner's Appearance (tags)

Infowars confirmed with sources at CNN the segment was cancelled because another guest who had agreed to appear as an opposition voice to Hicks and Asner refused to participate the interview at the last moment. The CNN source further indicated that the opposition guest was none other than a former member of the Keene 9/11 whitewash Commission.

IRAQI NUKE SCIENTIST TELLS ALL (No program since '91) (tags)
While David Kay delays a full report over the state of the alleged Iraqi nuclear program, he cites difficulties of discovering the truth due to the fact prominent nuke scientist Dr. Khalid Said is dead. Meanwhile, a "live" Iraqi nuke scientist in Canada has never been interviewed by the US government and remains ignored. According to Khadduri, Dr. Khalid Said held the post that "Saddam's Bombmaker" (Dr. Khidir Hamza) claimed to hold - but is now reported to have only held for six months before being fired for poor performance. How did Dr. Said die? He died in a hail of bullets when he failed to stop quickly enough at an American checkpoint in Baghdad on April 8, 2003. Now the US has sent the scientist with a credibility problem, Dr. Hamza back to Iraq to report on the alleged nuclear program. And everyone knows dead scientists don't talk.

Web sites for ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News and CNN have likewise carried nothing on the film.
