NBC Rejects Chics: What’s Up with That?

The Frustrated Journalist | It appears that once again the Dixie Chicks have exhibited public disapproval of the Bush administration and once again the media have answered by censoring them. This bodes ill for the future of free speech, at least what’s left of it in America. // © 2006, Sasha A. Rae, All Rights Reserved more...  1 Comments

Army "Career Center" in Paterson C-L-O-S-E-D For Good!

Vincent F. | Our friends from Inclusive Democracy were going to have yet another demo in front of they Army Career Center in Paterson, and when they got their this past October 31, all were surprised that there was no longer an army 'Career' Center. That's right folks, you've read right. The premises were vacant, and only a puny and sorry looking sign left behind informing that they had "relocated" (retreated) to ostensibly greener pasturers in West Paterson, NJ. more...  2 Comments

Brad Will and Oaxaca

JVC | On Friday October 27, 2006 Brad Will, 36, a documentary filmmaker and reporter for the New York City Indymedia Center (nyc.indymedia.org), died of a gunshot to the chest after armed attackers opened fire on a barricade in the neighborhood of Santa Lucia El Camino, on the outskirts of Oaxaca, Mexico. People chased the gunmen away from the barricade. Brad followed the people who were trying to capture the shooters. The gunmen were continually firing on the unarmed crowd. The crowd threw rocks and shot pebbles from slingshots. The attackers fired live rounds from their pistols and rifles randomly. Then as seen in Brad's own video Pedro Carmona, the PRI mayor, took aim with a 9mm pistol and pulled the trigger. The VW Beatle transporting Brad to get help ran out of gas and was refueled. Brad was still alive, but he died
approximately one hour after he was shot just before he reached the Red Cross. more...  0 Comments

Trouble on the Airwaves

Chris Anderson | The disputed financial status of WBAI is only one of many items about which different sides disagree, but it is perhaps the most important current area of conflict. WBAI has perennially teetered on the edge of financial ruin, with accusations of falling listenership and fiscal mismanagement long having been used as weapons in the various factional battles over the station’s direction. The plain, hard numbers, however – obtained from several anonymous LSB members and from public documents – paint a depressing picture. [Read More] more...  0 Comments
