Money Trail - the Pimps of Propaganda CNN, MSNBC

After World War II, the American press protected the Bush family from any exposure of their criminal behavior ( trading with the enemy, and making a small fortune in profits from Auschwitz concentration camp). Instead, this Bush predisposition to trade subversively and with both sides, has been kept from public view by a complicit media. It starts at the top with the ownership.

Media involvement IS extensive, just as American firms funded Hitler to the extent that there never would have been a WII, the media covered up for the Bush family all this time.

American media complicit with this administration are war criminals.

As deep throat suggested during Watergate, "follow the money" (if the stench doesn't overwhelm you first).

Some additional proof of the conflict of interest between the press and the presidency is detailed at this link (excerpt below)

CNN + DeLay + MSNBC + Iraq Contracts + Disney + Rednecks = Profit!

If you're looking for some good reasons to go with the feeling in your gut that the corporate newsmedia has so many interconnected conflicts of interest that you shouldn't trust them to tell you the time, much less the truth, this editorial provides a heck of an overview.

Some highlights:

That same day, CNN's parent company, Time Warner, announced the hiring of DeLay's chief of staff as a top Washington lobbyist. This news, and its timing, prompted Jeff Chester of the Center for Digital Democracy to tell the L.A. Weekly: "Time Warner aligning itself with the right-wing DeLay machine should send shudders [down] CNN and HBO."

At least that wily old codger Sumner Redstone, head of Viacom, parent company of CBS, has admitted what everyone already knows is true: that, while he personally may be a Democrat, "It happens that I vote for Viacom. Viacom is my life, and I do believe that a Republican administration is better for media companies than a Democratic one."

As for Immelt, he publicly wishes his MSNBC could be a clone of FNC. Not surprising, since he let his network and cable news cheerlead the run-up to the Iraqi war without ever bothering to tell viewers GE had billions in contracts pending. More than half of Iraq's power grid is GE technology.

Disney, parent company of ABC, has turned most of its extensive radio network and owned-and-operated stations into a 24/7 orgy of right-wing talk. (Sean Hannity is their poster boy.)
Plenty more there to think about, too.

Every time I hear talk of a blogger ethics conference, I laugh so hard my stigmata starts acting up. If we want the newsmedia to get back to reporting news -- and I mean actual, politically sensitive news, not breathless on-the-scene reports from whatever stagelit tropical scene White Girl Number 23 has disappeared from this week -- we need to surgically detach the news organizations from the conglomerates that have subsumed them.


Keep on rocking and shedding light where the liars lurk. The truth will wilt these cowardly cretins of commerce. They have begun to believe their projected image of decency rather than the reality of criminal negligence and deceit (they drank the kool aid).

In the meantime be the most outrageous thing you can be in this world, YOURSELF.
