Please join the call for Ms. Winfrey to support the human rights of Angolans and Palestinians.

Neocon Chickenhawks: A Small Tightly-Knit Clan Part 1 (tags)
This list of intricate, overlapping connections is hardly exhaustive or perhaps even surprising. But it helps reveal an important fact. Contrary to appearances, the neocons do not constitute a powerful mass political movement. They are instead a small, tightly-knit clan whose incestuous familial and personal connections, both within and outside the Bush administration, have allowed them grab control of the future of American foreign policy.

"Accuracy in Media" Validates Goering's Axiom (tags)
Why, of course, the people don't want war...But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship
[Democratic] voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country." --- Hermann Goering
Complete liberty of contradiction and disproving our opinion is the very condition which justifies us in assuming its truth for purposes of action; and on no other terms can a being with human faculties have any rational assurance of being right --- John Stuart Mill (from, On Liberty)

Free Speech Radio's Uncritical Alliance with Indian Country Today (newspaper)? (tags)
In today's broadcast of "Free Speech Radio" (on KBOO), I heard commentary quoting the newspaper "Indian Country Today" in a way that appeared to make it sound as if this assimilationist newspaper is an authoritative, unbiased source in Indian country. Critical thinkers would do well to investigate the actual truth that this newspaper, led by editor Tim Giago, may as well have an open alliance with federal mandates to manipulate, suppress, quell and silence traditional voices and values. Autonomous (non-ideological) Natives/Indians expose the games of assimilationist-seeking "Indian Country Today" (note: Leftism is assimilationist when you want liberation from an entire value system!)

Media Underplays U.S. Death Toll in Iraq (tags)
Any way you look at it, the news is bad enough. According to Thursday's press and television reports, 33 U.S. soldiers have now died in combat since President Bush declared an end to the major fighting in the war on May 2. This, of course, is a tragedy for the men killed and their families, and a problem for the White House.
American Journalism — to What Depth? (tags)
IF YOU want to measure the extent to which the standards of American journalism have sunk, your best barometer is no doubt the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. There you will find not only the usual lack of investigative backbone that now prevails across the American journalism landscape, or the remarkable self-censorship with which the American media go about “covering the news,” but, at times, also encounter what can only be described as an astonishing and breathtaking open refusal to live up to even the most basic responsibilities of being a journalist or running a newspaper.
Media Parrots: Handout Photos Don't Tell the Whole Story (tags)
Manufacture News is a fact of life in America of the 21st Century. How often is the image you see one that was crafted to tug at your heart strings or provoke a specific emotional response? Media used as a tool of manipulation can take an honest image and use it to create a false message.
