Only fifteen years after the Patriot Act, the Associated Press finally had a wake-up call because FBI impersonated THEM!!!

AP: DOJ inspector general report ‘raises serious constitutional concerns’

I guess if FBI agents impersonated Reuters staff they wouldn’t have minded so much. But now this cuts into public trust of AP itself, and so they had to say something.

The treason of 9/11 and the fabricated “war on terror” have come full circle. The fascists are winning, clearly, getting away with mass murder in nation after nation, supporting the terrorists they claim to fight, and destroying the civilization that took centuries of struggle to enact. While the Bill of Rights is burned, and the totalitarian Big Brother state activated, the final restraints are being excised, while Americans are too fat, stupid, and lazy to even keep track of this direct assault…

Twitter/website purports to debunk false social media news stories. The company was swallowed up, however, by RUPERT MURDOCH, a longstanding perpetrator of bullshit news stories. Viewers of his glaringly biased “news” products are among the most misinformed people on the planet…

Storyful Exposes Viral Hoaxes For News Outlets

So we must be very skeptical of the intent, the usage, and the implications of this strategic move. Fox “News Corp” (sic) eats up a website that debunks fake stories that it intends to use to give intelligence to its own competitors (other news sources, NY Times, BBC, Al Jazeera, etc.).

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.

Journalists Accuse White House of Politically-Driven Suppression of News

Over three dozen journalist organizations including the Radio Television Digital News Association, National Press Foundation, and the Society of Professional Journalists, have asked the President to drop the “excessive controls” on public information by federal agencies, branding it “politically driven suppression of news and information about federal agencies.”

There has been an ongoing tension between broadcast, print and online journalists and the Obama administration, with complaints that the Administration has limited access to events, while providing its own “coverage” through official channels.

For those who’ve been drunk and tied up in a basement this past decade, the fascism of the federal government is becoming harder and harder to disguise. Fascism is corporate/state partnership to fuck over the powerless common people – like you. Welcome to Mussolini’s America. Grow up and take a stand for real freedom, not this prepackaged flag waving, orchestrated mindlessness they feed the rubes. It requires knowledge, vigilance, logic and courage.

Unless the people say NO, they will seize more power until the America you once knew is unrecognizable, except for the red, white and blue propaganda banners littering the slums.

Guardian editors working on the Edward Snowden story were targeted in a multi-prong operation of intimidation, theft and hacking.

Writing The Snowden Files: ‘The paragraph began to self-delete’

The paragraph I had just written began to self-delete. The cursor moved rapidly from the left, gobbling text. I watched my words vanish. When I tried to close my OpenOffice file the keyboard began flashing and bleeping.

Cumberbatch ignores the criticisms of the script laid out by Assange. Specifically, he avoids addressing whether the script was changed at all from the version Assange had, and what his contribution, if any, was to making script changes. This is dancing around the substance and pushing a lot of PR styled flak in support of the film (hired gun style).

Letter

“The Fifth Estate is a powerful, if dramatized, entry point for a discussion about this extraordinary lurch forward in our society.”

Delusions of grandeur?  An “entry point?”  So people have no idea what Wikileaks is and need his movie to get up to speeed?

Free-Your-Mind

New corporate news protection law seeks to leave bloggers and freelancers dangling in the breeze.  Particularly Wikileaks will remain a target, and so will independent bloggers across the spectrum, such as yours truly.

The Hill:

Media giants put multimillion-dollar lobbying muscle behind shield law

The question of who would receive the additional legal protections as a “covered journalist” has become a contentious point, with bloggers and lawmakers taking umbrage at the idea of the government deciding who is and isn’t a legitimate reporter.

During the markup of the Senate bill, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said the committee had entered “dangerous territory” by drawing lines between who does, or does not, qualify for protection.

“It seems to me the First Amendment protects the activity, not the employment status of the person engaging in it,” Cruz said.

It’s not often I agree with republican congressmen.  But since Obama has openly turned to fascism and the sponsoring of terrorists, you take what you can get.
