Judith Miller's Decision Reduces Journalists' Rights

Washington Post | Consensus among journalists outside the NY Times is that Judith Miller and her management's decision, to avoid cooperating with the grand jury, has harmed the rights of all journalists by narrowing the interpretation of a 1972 court case that defined journalists' privilege. more...  1 Comments

what are they saying -- we do or do not negotiate with terrorists?

nick cooper | It's like, of course we talk to insurgents, I mean not like we're negotiatiating, that's absurd, we just kinda... you know, talk about stuff, aloo al akbar and all that, nothing too serious. And, lest you get some ridiculous notion that violence is a useful tool in getting our ear, we think that is nonsense, violence never solved anything, unless we do it. We just like to talk to as many people as we can, and we would be talking to them anyway even if they weren't making our war look bad, I mean even if they just sent us a letter we would have been happy to meet, have a beer, I mean, uhh, what do they drink again? blood? No we don't talk to the ones that have any big bloodstains on their hands. I mean, we check them out carfefully, under the nails. We basically want to talk to everyone involved, but not any of the bad guys, we basically want to talk to pacifist friends of the violent ones, who can put in a good word. It's all very reasonable and consistent. more...  0 Comments

Race and National Origin at Pacifica Why Should You Care?

Tom Gomez | Turn on your radio. Spin the dial. Companies like clear channel and Cox own well in excess of 3000 broadcast outlets. That's how most of us get our information. Pacifica exists to counter that. It has only 5 stations, but in major cities, With $400,000,000 in assests and 16 million in yearly budget the foundation is the single most valuable asset of the left. Under one vision it would move to the right, under another it would recruit activists to actually create media. more...  0 Comments

The 'Downing St. Memos' destroyed? Not on your Nelly!

Henk Ruyssenaars | If one as an investigative journalist wants to stay alive, one way to do it is 'serving' the explosive information in portions. First fifty%, then 25, and the last 25% is a kind of 'life guard': used until a 'case of emergency' erupts, like when the journalist or whistleblower is "suicided". more...  0 Comments

As with Terri Schaivo, It’s Time to Pull the Plug on a Brain-Dead US Media

Dave Lindorff | The sorry display of editors making lame excuses for not informing the American public for over a month of the damning written evidence of Bush lying to get the U.S. into a needless war in Iraq—the Downing Street memos—makes it clear that no one who wants to know what’s going on should waste time reading or watching the corporate media. ------------------------------ more...  0 Comments
