Arianna Huffington Suspends HuffPost Staffers for Crossing Her Friends

Yet another clown in control of the US “free” press.

Arianna Huffington, the editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, routinely meddles with the work of HuffPost reporters who criticize her friends. According to a new report in Capital New York, the Greek-American multi-millionaire recently picked up an even worse habit: Suspending reporters who write negative but otherwise completely factual articles about any of her pals.

UNABLETOPOST-1 copy

Facebook has me unable to post any more comments that challenge Moyers’ slanted so-called “news.” Daily his feed posts a dozen different articles, mostly attacking Republicans, but coincidentally letting the Democrats slide, even in the face of glaring hypocrisy.

In a futile effort to keep him honest, I responded to these obvious hypocrisies. His gaggle of idiots mindlessly defended the indefensible (predictably). But Moyers himself never responds, except via this censorship.

Today he’s apparently taking on JP Morgan, while last week he was lauding Eric Holder, the man who let JP Morgan and friends rape and pillage without consequence. Shame this makes it nowhere near his deluded audience:

The cozy relationship between the power elite and the media elite needs to be called out.

I think the zinger that got me banned by the poobah was this gem, which I may put on a shirt:

PARTISAN NEWS IS NOT REAL NEWS

Apparently, by censoring dissenters, Moyers has copped to the “partisan news” charge. Guilty. Half the story is a full lie, you know. That’s how this country is so utterly fucked up the ass, most of the people believe one party’s propaganda or the other’s. Neither is telling the full truth, and that is a MAJOR FUCKING PROBLEM, MR. BILL MOYERS.

“When the doctrine of allegiance to party can utterly up-end a man’s moral constitution and make a temporary fool of him besides, what excuse are you going to offer for preaching it, teaching it, extending it, perpetuating it? Shall you say, the best good of the country demands allegiance to party? Shall you also say it demands that a man kick his truth and his conscience into the gutter, and become a mouthing lunatic, besides?”

Ferguson no-fly zone aimed at media

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government agreed to a police request to restrict more than 37 square miles of airspace surrounding Ferguson, Missouri, for 12 days in August for safety, but audio recordings show that local authorities privately acknowledged the purpose was to keep away news helicopters during violent street protests.

Journalists were arrested at many, many protests. Even Amy Goodman was hauled away at the Occupy protests.

During the Boston Marathon siege by 10,000 National Guard and police the media was pushed back out of range of the action.

Back in 2000 I was at the Democratic National Convention protests, video taping at the same corner where LAPD blasted the crowd with shotgun rounds of some sort and rubber bullets. A journalist was shot in the chest with a rubber bullet and nearly died. ACLU later sued the city for millions, and my footage netted me a piece of the settlement for providing evidence.

The press was barred from getting near every flash point where the police state’s actions are in question. It is a way of erasing the Constitution, accountability, justice and morality in a small bit of territory while the police become enforcers of the corporatocracy, rather than law enforcers.

How the Media Protects Obama

Another White House flack, Eric Schultz, didn’t like being pressed for answers about the Fast and Furious scandal in which American agents directed guns into the arms of Mexican drug lords. “Goddammit, Sharyl!” he screamed at her. “The Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, The New York Times is reasonable. You’re the only one who’s not reasonable!”

News Anchor Revolts

This explains why my Future Children of Fukushima article and the Chernobyl Horrors page have been the most viewed pages/articles I’ve ever posted. I’ve not met a nuclear apologist yet who could withstand the avalanche of evidence.

“I am a newscaster, but I couldn’t tell the true story on my news program,” says Jun Hori, a former anchor for NHK, the Japanese state broadcaster.

Hori says the network restricted what he and other journalists could say about Fukushima and moved more slowly than foreign media to report on the disaster and how far radiation was spreading. The attitude in the newsroom was not to question official information

Japan has dropped 31 places since 2011 in a World Press Freedom ranking compiled by the group Reporters Without Borders.

The war on Gary Webb is covered at The Intercept.

CIA / MEDIA COLLABORATORS DESTROYED GARY WEBB

The CIA watched these developments closely, collaborating where it could with outlets who wanted to challenge Webb’s reporting. Media inquiries had started almost immediately following the publication of “Dark Alliance,” and Dujmovic in “Managing a Nightmare” cites the CIA’s success in discouraging “one major news affiliate” from covering the [Contra Cocaine] story. 

Congressional committee:

…Contras themselves knowingly received financial and material assistance from drug traffickers. In each case, one or another agency of the U.S. government had information regarding the involvement either while it was occurring, or immediately thereafter.”

The chief of the CIA’s Central America Task Force was also quoted as saying, “With respect to (drug trafficking) by the Resistance Forces…it is not a couple of people. It is a lot of people.”
