Media Distraction – Hurricane Irene Hype

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Whenever something becomes the news story of the week, be it Casey Anthony, the NFL labor talks, or any other non-issue, I tend to ask the following questions, “What is not being reported?” “What is being left out?” “What should I be concerned with?”

Well, here’s a video where someone compares the coverage of “Hurricane” Irene and Hurricane Earl from less than a year prior. If you can ignore the fact that he doesn’t care about what’s behind him in his videos, what he says is interesting. He’s calling it “Hurricane Not-Qaddafi”, implying that the media distraction is intended to pull attention away from NATO’s illegal efforts in Libya and the extensive misrepresentation of what exactly is taking place there.

However, there are other things to divert our attention away from:

  • That somehow it’s okay that a sovereign nation’s assets were frozen and later given to the people overthrowing that government (Can you imagine for a second if China did that to the rioters in Greece or London? How do you think that would be represented on our news outlets?)
  • That Ron Paul should be winning the Republican nomination
  • That the dollar is collapsing
  • That Israel is meddling in Iran, Syria, and slaughtering people in Gaza
  • Etc, etc

But I digress… on to the “hurricane” “coverage”.

Worth Revisiting – Israeli Lobby in US

Saturday, March 7th, 2009

As Iran comes into focus again, it may be time to revisit the Zionist lobby’s role in US Foreign policy. Check out this video from DemocracyNow.org

“In the study ‘The Israel Lobby & U.S. Foreign Policy’, the authors of the paper, Professor Stephen Walt of Harvard University and John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago, charge that the United States has willingly set aside its own security and that of many of its allies in order to advance the interests of Israel. In addition the study accuses the pro-Israeli lobby, particularly AIPAC of manipulating the U.S. media, policing academia and silencing critics of Israel by labeling them as anti-Semitic.”


Here’s a transcript of the video, if you’re interested:

Obama picks anti-Iran man for Iran post

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

I don’t know… this latest Obama pick doesn’t give me the same warm and fuzzy feeling I usually get with my President. If anything, this has huge potential to mess up a timely opportunity for change in the world.

I once heard of a patient at my hospital telling his surgeon (a friend of mine) that Obama was a “post turtle”. When asked what a post turtle was, the man responded… “I don’t know. A turtle on a post. You gotta wonder, how did he get there? Someone had to put ‘im there. And then you wonder… how’s he gonna get down?” If someone really did put him on that post, then that same someone is probably pulling the strings on these appointments.

Anyway, I digress… here’s your link: Obama picks anti-Iran man for Iran post

Dennis Ross will provide Mrs. Clinton with “strategic advice and perspective on the region, offer assessments and also act to ensure effective policy integration throughout the region”

… Great… “strategic advice”, “perspective on the region”…

And how does one “ensure effective policy integration throughout the region”? Sounds like a big task, but really is just a bunch of politico-avoid-the-question speak. It almost even sounds unbiased.
