CORPORATE MEDIA IS COMING TO HOME (tags)

Capital’s most severe crisis in seventy years ought to be a moment of significant opportunity for the left. But as the right mobilizes disgruntled Americans via its vast radio, television, web, and print empires, the one mass medium available to the left is driving out its best and brightest.

“No on 8” Actions, Discussions Continue (tags)

The fight against the anti-marriage Proposition 8 has lasted quite a bit longer than the election, in which the same-sex marriage ban passed by a five-point margin. Queer and allied activists are still holding demonstrations against the initiative and meeting to discuss where the fight will go next. But their discussions are stronger on building communications strategies than actually plotting a course to reverse the ballot measure.

Fannie Mae Lie:SEC Chris Cox,Agora Inc.,James Dale Davidson, Lord Rees Mogg,LOM Bermuda (tags)

Now why does Chris Cox and his SEC (U.S.Securities Exchange Commission)allow Scott Lines and his LOM(Lines Overseas Management) of Bermuda Bahamas Isle of Man,etc.whose massive U.S. penny stock frauds and manipulations in collusion with disgraced Florida Democrat Rep.Tim Mahoney's vFinance and Charles Schwab has been covered up by the SEC itself to buy and sell Fannie Mae,Freddie Mac,etc. shares ? And how can anyone know just how many they really buy and sell or short,(dump),over time ? Could these types of offshore hedge fund and securities fraudsters be what caused the collapse of Fannie Mae shares and NOT the lie Chrisopher Cox about 'naked shorting' Cox has sold to the public ?

Information Control: The Disempowerment of America (tags)

“Information is power and whoever controls the information has the power.” This simple axiom applies today more than ever in America – with an addition to it. Whoever controls information access has the power to control the direction of our country, especially since the media are the most pervasive and omnipresent purveyors of information in the U.S. // © 2006, Sasha A.

Its a MediaEmergenC !! Converge against Corprate Media! (tags)

Media EmergenC, a conference organized by the San Diego Independent Media Center to promote, strengthen and build democratic media organizations, will incorporate performance, street action, workshops, speakers and forums October 6-9 to raise a voice of opposition against the increasing corporate control of our media. The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), an organization with considerable lobbying power in Washington D.C. which represents owners of media broadcasting outlets, will bring its annual conference, the Radio Road Show to San Diego October 4-8. The NAB was a major force behind the FCC's deregulation of media ownership guidelines and continues to lobby for the ability of a relatively few corporations to control a majority of the media outlets available to the American public. COME CONVERGE IN SAN DIEGO TO SAY FUCK CORPRATE MEDIA!!

Why does Kerry sound like Bush? (tags)

According to the logic of the Democratic Party establishment and their mouthpieces, the only candidate that can beat Bush is the one that’s just as tough as Bush. As for people who actually want to see an end to Bush’s rotten reign--people who opposed the war on Iraq and Bush’s giveaways to Corporate America--they should keep quiet, while Kerry moves to the right to look for more votes.

Michael Powell: Up in Flames (tags)

Poor, poor, pitiful Michael Powell. His term as chairman of the Federal Communications Commission was supposed to be easy. He thought that like FCC chairs before him, his job was to jet around the country meeting at swank resorts with the CEOs of major media companies, take some notes and then quietly implement their sweeping agenda for loosening the last significant constraints on media consolidation in the United States.

Clear Channel Is A Subsidiary Of Bush, Inc (tags)

t's no coincidence that Clear Channel executives Tom Hicks and L. Lowry Mays have contributed tens of thousands of dollars to Bush's gubernatorial and presidential campaign coffers. Or that Clear Channel gave $119,370 in "soft money" to Republicans in 2001-2002, this on top of the $82,850 it gave in 2000. (Democrats, meanwhile, got $25,000 in soft money in that same three-year period.)

Clear Channel: the Media Mammoth that Stole the Airwaves (tags)

Clear Channel Communications of San Antonio may not be a household name yet, but in less than six years it has rocketed to a place alongside NBC and Gannett as one of the largest media companies in the United States. The mega-company has gained a reputation for its ugly hardball tactics. Clear Channel has played a leading role in destroying media diversity in the United States. And yes, it is the same media company that allegedly "blacklisted" certain songs following September 11, including Cat Stevens' Peace Train and John Lennon's Imagine.

Who is Paying for the Pro-War Rallies. (tags)

The Pro-War rallies are a contrived artifice of a few big Media Conglomerates pulling together a bunch of suckers and picking up the tab so it makes it easy for the Suckers to attend. Clear Channel has even been paying for professionally made signs.
