This article is to be witnessed by all. This is too important to pass up. This man speaks truth to corpomedia and to the growth of the media propaganda machine. Surprise surprise, it has been going on for as long as our oldest people fail to recognize. We at TVNL need to be informed about hoew right jesse is about who and what is our #1 threat.

Freedom Next Time: Filmmaker & Journalist John Pilger on Propaganda, the Press, Censorship and Resisting the American Empire

http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl? ... /07/130258

Pulls few punches as he outlines the tragedy of empire, the things they do to maintain it and its founders who care nothing for us.

Quote:
"Liberal Democracy is moving toward a form of corporate dictatorship. This is an historic shift, and the media must not be allowed to be its façade, but itself made into a popular, burning issue, and subjected to direct action," said John Pilger. "That great whistleblower Tom Paine warned that if the majority of the people were denied the truth and the ideas of truth, it was time to storm what he called the Bastille of words. That time is now." We spend the hour airing a recent lecture by the acclaimed Australian filmmaker and muckraker.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When Rupert Murdoch won his bid to take over Dow Jones and the Wall Street Journal last week, the Australian media baron brought one of America's oldest, most respected and widely-circulated newspapers into his vast media empire. Murdoch's News Corp media conglomerate owns more than 175 other newspapers as well as the Fox Television network, 21st Century Fox film studios, several satellite networks, MySpace.com, HarperCollins, and much more.
Besides amassing a media empire, Murdoch has repeatedly been accused of using his media holdings to advance his political agenda. In 2003, all of Murdoch's 175 newspapers supported the Iraq invasion. He spoke to former British Prime Minister Tony Blair in the lead-up to the invasion, some in Blair's inner circle even called him “the 24th member of the [Blair] Cabinet.”

After the announcement of the five billion dollar sale, Murdoch told the New York Times that in order for the Wall Street Journal to remain editorially independent it needed to make healthy profits. Murdoch said "The first road to freedom, is viability."

Well one of Rupert Murdoch's fellow countrymen, an Australian who also resides in Britain, strongly disagrees. John Pilger - the eminent investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker - is a harsh critic of the corporate media. Pilger began his career in journalism close to half a century ago. He has made over 50 documentaries and is the author of numerous books, his most recent is titled "Freedom Next Time: Resisting the Empire."

Today, we spend the hour with John Pilger talking about journalism, war, propaganda, and silence.

John Pilger, speaking during the Socialism 2007 conference in Chicago.


Spoiler alert- he calls Clinton some very bad names- the worst war president of the last century. But hey, we know they're all in this charade together.

Perhaps SOCIALISM will become the catchphrase of the next century as we search for real solutions to our problems with this vampire corpitalism that has ensnared our logic and reason. Soon we will embrace our only hope - universal sharing and caring. It's always been there waiting for us, but some can be propagandized by greed and spread there disease like a virus, infecting the people of the earth with its material enticements, ensnaring everyone under its delusions.

Now that the earth itself is rejecting our sickness- maybe before we're strong- arm-ageddoned into their vision of solutions at all costs, and see we don't have to pay that price, perhaps we can demand accountability and truth from our media and our leaders. They're being much too secretive about their plans to be trusted any longer! But with the media projecting the news that "fits" to be news, we don't stand a chance at getting the real story out!

I'm afraid it's getting closer to act than we wish to find ourselves, but lets hope we haven't waited too long. Thanks to messages we still get we can use this information to foreplan our approach as to how we will reverse this danger, before it becomes all too real. No news is usually good news unless it is covering the truth. We need truth and truthful information!

Thank you John Pilger for helping us understand how ill informed we are kept. Did you read about what he said about Britains genocide of the Indians from India? Just like I reported in the Avoidable Mortality Post. How about us setting Pol Pot up in Cambodia? Plans that somehow escaped the news? Somehow? Bought and paid for is how!!!

I had written a letter to Jesse some time back stating that we should stop protesting our government and start forming groups outside of the news media's headquarters. See how they like tens of thousands on their front door step.

No answer from him:(

The idea for grouping is the best way to fight their money. In Europe they have an organ called europe2000nonukes or something, which is made up of over 2000 groups from 9/11 people, to gays, colored, women, etc that have one common ideal- the banning of nuclear weapons and energy. Perhaps that is what must be done- find a common theme and work it from there. Soon people will see that it is a whole group of lies that we are fighting and so it will grow in opposition to the powers that be. Make sure it includes all the people in North America as we seem to be affecting all of the worlds people!

Taking them on one at a time is not going to work and will be defeated by "divide and conquer". We must form blocs for our own protection as well as to create a viable opposition to these autocrats in power now.

Perhaps this will help you understand the angst that is, for those who carry the torch of truth-

TVNL Editor's Comments: Overwhelmed

Aug. 02/07- As of late a combination of overwork and disillusionment has taken it's toll on me. I have neglected to prepare a newsletter on a regular basis. I apologize for this. Over the next few weeks I will continue to update the news page throughout the day but I may scale not send daily news letters or I may send them will little or no daily commentary. This is simply because the combination of issues at hand, combined with my frustration that the general public, including my close friends, refuse to respond to the real world evidence of what is taking place in our world is overloading my temper.

I will make every attempt to resume daily commentary as soon as possible. In the meantime please continue to visit the news page for continual coverage of the reality based world.

For now I ask you to take some time and watch this video for free on line: http://zeitgeistmovie.com/

The video gets off to a slow and odd start but it covers interesting aspects of religion, 9/11, central banking and war. I have yet to finish it but I have to tell you it is fascinating. Most of what is in the video I knew but there are certainly pockets of information that is new to me and I find it to be very intriguing if not completely enlightening.

So again I apologize for the inconstancy of my newsletter as of late. I'll be back in full swing soon...I promise. In the meantime keep spreading the good word. Maybe together we can open enough eyes and eventually wake the nation out of the sleep that the establishment media has placed them in! Then perhaps we can appropriately address the crimes of those who have made it their business to hide the truth from us all. Think about it! Jesse Richard – Editor, TvNewsLIES.org
Seems he just discovered Zeitgeist as well as us. Also seems he's too busy and disillusioned to respond. Fortunately he posted another TVNL headline News page today, so hopefully he's back. I sent him a message today to tell him that we would love him to drop by. I'm sure there are so many messages and things we want to ask him. Perhaps if we all got on his case, he'd make an appearance. I sent him an e-mail today telling him that I would be posting this message and tried to normalize his feelings.

Try sending it to his blog, early in the day if you can. He and reggie both sometimes respond there to inquiries. Anyway, he hasn't been here since just after I first started here, so I guess he's really busy. But one should never forget their roots, and a visit here from Jesse is well overdue.
