Was Montel Williams Kicked Off the Air for Criticizing Fox News?

After 17 years on the air, Montel Williams was canceled for speaking out against Fox's choice of news coverage. When asked his opinion of Heath Ledger's death, Williams turned the tables and asked why Fox, or any corporate media station for that matter, is not giving as much time to the 28 soldiers who died in January. Montel has 22 years of military service under his belt. If any television host is entitled to comment on casualties of war, it's him.

The sphincters of the hosts were clearly tightening, and Montel consequently did not return after the commercial break for a second segment. Then, just 4 days after he insulted Fox News by insisting that they support the troops and give them more coverage, a number of stations owned by Fox decided against renewing his show for another year. It was a rather heavy-handed punishment even Sylvia Brown didn't see coming, but was done to send a clear message.


"Spin" by Brian Springer

It's a film made about the 1992 presidential election and it explains just about everything that is going on now, 16 years later.

The film shows:

* viable candidates being eliminated by the news media

* politicians being fed slick answers by spin doctors

* hopelessly corrupt news reporters lying through their cosmetically perfect teeth

The stars of the movie are Bush and Clinton. No, not junior and Hilary. The other Bush and Clinton show. Bill and Sr.

Back when Richard Nixon was forced to resign, he had to make certain that the man who succeeded him in the Oval Office would make sure that the real secrets of Watergate stayed secret. The secret in question was the MOTIVE for the break-in, which involved photographs that linked Nixon to the assassination of John F. Kennedy. So, Spiro Agnew was ejected and Gerald Ford, a member of the Warren Commission, became Vice President, then President when Nixon resigned. Ford then issued pardons for everyone, and that ended the investigation into Watergate.

Now, we move up to a later scandal, Iran-Contra, in which the Reagan White House, then the Bush Sr. White House, were neck deep in a covert operation where guns were smuggled down to the Contras, and drugs brought back into the United States to fund the operation. The crash of Eugene Hassenfuss' airplane blew the lid off, and Bush knew that he would not survive a second term in office. But, like Nixon, Bush needed to make certain that his successor in the Oval Office would keep the really dark secrets secret; in this case, the drug smuggling portion of the scandal.

So, Bush decided that Bill Clinton, government of Arkansas and overseer of the US end of the guns and drugs pipeline at Mena, Arkansas, should be the next President. Clinton, even though a Democrat, stood to lose just as much as Bush would if the full story of Iran-Contra ever became public, so Bush called in a lot of favors through his CIA connections, and the mainstream media obediently destroyed every other Democratic candidate except the one they wanted to win the primary (not unlike Nixon had done during Watergate). The media even went so far as to polish over Clinton's obvious shortcomings. The media, not the voters, chose the President.

And today, history repeats.

"Spin" by Brian Springer

One of the most important films of the last 25 years

Footage you were never
supposed to see

Artist Brian Springer spent a year scouring the airwaves with a satellite dish grabbing back channel news feeds not intended for public consumption. The result of his research is SPIN, one of the most insightful films ever made about the mechanics of how television is used as a tool of social control to distort and limit the American public's perception of reality.

Take the time to watch it from beginning to end and you'll never look at TV reporting the same again. Tell your friends about it. This extraordinary film released in the early 1990s is almost completely unknown. Hopefully, the Internet will change that.

Note: We have posted exceprts of this film. You can find these excerpts by going to the "Spin" section of Brasscheck TV.
