Sur les médias et Internet...

Sur les médias et Internet...

Voici quelques articles qui valent la peine d`être vu dans le domaine des médias. Des nouvelles sur la prise de position du Pentagone sur l`Internet, sur le futur d`Internet, sur la propagande dans les médias, sur la complicité des médias de masse dans la guerre contre l`Iraq, sur les menteurs et extorqueurs d`argent en échange de couverture médiatique favorable, de manipulation de l`information et de la censure. Bref, de quoi faire comprendre pourquoi les médias de masse sont en chute libre.

Zogby Poll: Most Say Bloggers, Citizen Reporters to Play Vital Role in Journalism's Future

Study: Web news readers have greater attention span

People who use the Internet to read the news have a greater attention span than print readers, according to a U.S. study that refutes the idea that Web surfers jump around and don't read much.

Said idea being a favorite fairy tale of the mainstream media.

Note to advertisers: this suggests that net surfers who see your ad on the net are more likely to retain the ad in their memory than those who see the same ad in the newspaper or on TV. This actually makes sense. It takes far more intelligence to use a computer than to pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV.

Commercialization and Future Access to the Internet Highway

Perhaps the most obvious political effect of controlled news is the advantage it gives powerful people in getting their issues on the political agenda and defining those issues in ways likely to influence their resolution."W. Lance Bennett

"The Bush majority on the FCC has bowed to the interests of the big cable and telephone companies to strip away, or undo, the Internet’s basic DNA of openness and non-discrimination.”Bill Moyers..

Propaganda and the Politics of Perception

A version of this text was presented to the Kuala Lumpur Conference on War Crimes, Perdana Global Peace Organization, 5-7 February 2007.

War propaganda glorifies military indoctrination as the highest form of patriotism while simultaneously demonizing the enemies of the state.

Adolf Hitler realized the power of propaganda to mould and shape public opinion. Hitler wrote a highly informed essay on the powers of propaganda in his political autobiography, Mein Kampf.

Modern governments employ propaganda to incite public outcries for war in order to advance their agendas in foreign policy.

Media complicity and disinformation on the Iraq war

Mouthpiece of U.S. imperialism

A new report by the progressive media watchdog group Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting shows the complicity of the capitalist media in selling the U.S. invasion of Iraq to a skeptical U.S. public.

FLASHBACK: The Iraqi tanks that were not there

Satellite photographs taken by the Soviet Union on the precise day Bush addressed Congress failed to show any evidence of Iraqi troops in Kuwait or massing along the Kuwait-Saudi Arabian border. While the Pentagon was claiming as many as 250,000 Iraqi troops in Kuwait, it refused to provide evidence that would contradict the Soviet satellite photos. U.S. forces, encampments, aircraft, camouflaged equipment dumps, staging areas and tracks across the desert can easily be seen. But as Peter Zimmerman, formerly of the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency in the Reagan Administration, and a former image specialist for the Defense Intelligence Agency, who analyzed the photographs said:

We didn't find anything of that sort [i.e. comparable to the U.S. buildup] anywhere in Kuwait. We don't see any tent cities, we don't see congregations of tanks, we can't see troop concentrations, and the main Kuwaiti air base appears deserted. It's five weeks after the invasion, and from what we can see, the Iraqi air force hasn't flown a single fighter to the most strategic air base in Kuwait. There is no infrastructure to support large numbers of people. They have to use toilets, or the functional equivalent. They have to have food.... But where is it?

As the Bushling and his Neocons try to sell us another war, it is worth recalling the scandal over photos shown by the Us Government during the run-up to Desert Storm.

The photos in question purported to show massed Iraqi tanks on the border with Saudi Arabia. But Russian satellite photos of the same region on the same day showed nothing but empty desert, and photos from a commercial satellite purchased by a Florida newspaper confirmed it.


The Washington Post has been caught red-handed inadvertantly printing the truth from a Reuters news feed and then censoring and rewriting the story to conform to government propaganda and lies.

U.S. forces in Diwaniyah in Iraq discovered a factory making EFP's (explosively formed penetrators). Now this is interesting because the official story from Washington is that Iran must be supplying these bombs to Iraq, because they are too sophisticated for the poor Iraqi raghead idiots to produce. So let's go bomb Iran, too!

And now U.S. soldiers have to go and find a FACTORY producing these things in IRAQ! OOPS!

Corporate spin can come in disguise

- James K. Glassman, a prominent syndicated columnist, denounced Super Size Me, a movie critical of McDonald's. Readers were not told that McDonald's is a major sponsor of a Web site hosted by Glassman.

- John Semmens, a policy adviser at the Heartland Institute, wrote a column for the Louisville Courier-Journal that called Wal-Mart "a major force in promoting prosperity for everyone." Readers were not told that his think tank had received more than $300,000 from the Walton Family Foundation, run by the heirs of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton.

- Steven Milloy, an analyst at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, wrote a column in the Washington Times that sided with the oil industry against windfall profits taxes. Readers weren't told that groups closely affiliated with Milloy have received at least $180,000 from ExxonMobil.

CNN's Nuke Plant Photos Identical for Both Iran and N. Korea!

CNN's Nuke Plant Photos Identical for Both Iran and N. Korea!

Who's the source for the photos?!

And are there any responsible corporate media outlets left in America?!

Two stories posted in the last week on the CNN website, one on nukes in Iran last Wednesday, and another on nukes in North Korea on Saturday, both use the same aerial photograph of the same purported nuclear power plant!

But one is supposed to be in Iran and the other is supposed to be in North Korea!


Debunking NY Post's Tabloid Hit Piece On Sheen/O'Donnell

O'Reilly Mafia Threatens O'Donnell Over Sex Scandal

Rosie O'Donnell, currently under attack after she questioned the official story behind 9/11, has revealed that Fox News bully Bill O'Reilly threatened to "go after" her and her colleagues after they mentioned O'Reilly's sex scandal on The View.

ABC has now gagged O'Donnell from mentioning the subject on all future broadcasts.

Maybe Rosie can't mention O'Reilly's sex scandal, BUT I SURE AS HELL CAN!

TOP STORYNew York Post Hit Piece On Sheen & O'Donnell (and yours truly)

Matt Rivero? The New York Post can't even get my name right, then proceed to claim to sit in judgment on Charlie Sheen and Rosie O'Donnell?

What is very obvious is that the New York Post wrote this panic-stricken hit piece without even bothering to visit my website where it says in gold type at the very top, "Michael Rivero's What Really Happened." It's up there now, above where you are reading this. Go ahead and look. I'll wait.

So, Richard Johnson, Paula Froelich, Bill Hoffmann, and Corynne Steindler all decided that my theory of the collapse of WTC-7 was "debunked", and not one of them, NOT ONE OF THEM, actually visited my website to find out what that theory really was.

We Hear . . . Stern Questions

Stern, a longtime freelance contributor to the Post’s “Page Six,” was accused by billionaire Ron Burkle of trying to extort $200,000 from him in exchange for keeping negative stories about him out of the paper. Now the “Page Six” editor, Richard Johnson, has been contacted for questioning by a group that includes prosecutors from the Southern District and federal agents.
