the Media Puzzle
by Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com
American progressives finally are taking seriously
the threat posed by the U.S. news media's
swing to the right, which - perhaps more than
any other factor - has transformed the U.S.
democratic process into a mess of disinformation,
fear and irrationality.
Many of the depredations of the last four-plus
years - from the war in Iraq and the collapse
of America's image abroad to assaults on
the teaching of evolution and inaction on the looming
global-warming crisis - can only be understood
by factoring in the Right's powerful propaganda
apparatus and the mainstream media's complicity.
Still, there remains widespread confusion on the
Left about what can be done and how to get
the most value from investments of money and talent.
One of Parry's ideas on how to fight back is to
support anti-Bush web sites.
We've lost PBS, we've lost the networks, we've
lost respect around the globe,
we've lost 1600 soldiers and thousands of arms
and legs so we'd better fight back.
It's not going to get any better because their
greed in insatiable.
Things will only get better when we force them
Maybe, someday, we can get the Democrats to join us.

flush the Koran story fake?
Did Newsweek pull a Rather, making Bush the victim again?
Newsweek Washington Bureau Chief Daniel Klaidman
said the magazine believes
it erred in reporting the allegation that a prison
guard tried to flush the Quran down
a toilet and that military investigators had confirmed
the accusation. Many of the
Gitmo 520 are Muslims arrested during Bush's oil-snatch
primer in Afghanistan.
Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said in a statement
that the original story was
"demonstrably false" and "irresponsible," and "had significant
reverberated throughout Muslim communities around
"Newsweek hid behind anonymous sources, which by their
own admission do not
withstand scrutiny," Whitman said. "Unfortunately,
they cannot retract the damage
they have done to this nation or those that were
viciously attacked by those false allegations."

hits the US forces
Deserter-in-Chief gets just desserts
The case of Sgt Benderman and those of others
like him has focused attention on the thousands
of US troops who have gone AWOL since the start
of Bush's so-called war on terror. The most
recent Pentagon figures suggest there are 5,133
troops missing from duty. Of these 2,376 are sought
by the Army, 1,410 by the Navy, 1,297 by the Marines
and 50 by the Air Force. Some have been
missing for decades.
But campaigners say the true figure could be far
higher. Staff who run a volunteer hotline to help
desperate soldiers and recruits who want to get
out, say the number of calls has increased by 50 per cent
since 9/11. Last year alone, the GI Rights Hotline
took more than 30,000 calls. At present, the hotline
gets 3,000 calls a month and the volunteers say
that by the time a soldier or recruit dials the help-line
they have almost always made up their mind to get
out by one means or another.
Ordinarily there'd be some dishonor in desertion.
But if your choices are dying for Halliburton

denies ribboners Communion
Support for gays makes you unholy, says rape-tolerant priests
ST. PAUL, Minn. - A Roman Catholic priest denied
communion to more than 100 people
Sunday, saying they could not receive the sacrament because
they wore rainbow-colored
sashes to church to show support
for gay Catholics.
Archbishop Harry Flynn told the group earlier
this month that they would not receive communion
because the sashes had become a protest against

Their sexual orientation "is a gift from God just

and her husband and three children all wore
rainbow-colored ribbons and were denied communion. "As

The Church has two choices:
It can back down now and say they were wronf or they
can back down later, after losing a few more millions of Americans.
Poker and chicken -
it's a bad combination when you have a losing hand.

The truth about Pat Tillman & Jessica Lynch by Ted Rall
Case study: the Washington Post's dutiful transcription
of the Jessica Lynch hoax.
Played up on page one and running on for thousands
of words, the fanciful Pentagon
version had the pilot from West Virginia emptying
her clip before finally succumbing to
a gunshot wound (and possible rape) by evil Iraqi
ambushers, then freed from her
tormentors at a heavily-guarded POW hospital.
Like the Pat Tillman story, it was pure fiction.
Private Lynch, neither shot nor sexually
violated, said she was injured when her vehicle
crashed. She never got off a shot
because her gun jammed. As she told reporters who
were willing to listen, her Iraqi
doctors and nurses had given her excellent care.
She credited them for saving her life.
Every writer has one story they just can't get

I turned against LBJ because of the Vietnam War,
even though he was responsible for
pushing through the Voting Rights Act. I had a
lot of fellow Democrats with me.
So how come "true" Republicans don't turn against
Bush en mass?
John, great question.
The more soldiers die, the more right they think
Bush was about his bloody invasion.
The worse the economy gets, the more they love
Bush's welfare for billionaires.
Soldiers line up, ready to die by the thousands,
for the BFEE and Halliburton.
It makes no sense at all, but when you own the
media, you own the minds of the sheep.
Let's say you were a judge at the Miss America Pageant.
Let's say there are nine judges.
The cute redhead with the long legs, the black
stockings, and the f-me boots could win,
and you're certain after you hear her sing. She
makes the final five, along with other girls
who don't have her looks, her talent or her stage
presence - and you think she's a lock.
But at the end of the show, it was a homely, not-so-attractive
girl who wins, and it turns out
she's the daughter of the pageant's biggest sponsor
- but you chalk it up to "shit happens."
After the gig, you gather with some other judges
at the hotel bar and the subject of the sexy
redhead comes up. Turns out, FOUR of the
judges, including you, voted for the cute redhead
with the long legs. Doing some quick math,
even if you're Catholic, you determine that the odds
of EVERY OTHER judge voting for the least qualified
contestant are astronomical since there
were FIVE finalists, meaning three of the finalists
failed to get a single vote - highly unlikely.
So you make a few phone calls and ask to see the
ballots, but you are told by the pageant owners
that the ballots had been thrown away and there
was no paper trail to prove who voted for whom.
We wouldn't stand for that in a Miss America
Pageant, would we?
Wouldn't America cry "FOUL!" and "FIXED!" and "WE'VE
BEEN SCREWED!" ?
Sure we would, because it's important to
know who really won.

"Bullet" was the fourth song they did.
Before the song was finished, I thought, "You guys played that song fourth?
You oughta be closing with that monster," and by the end of the

Finds War Protest Reasonable
In a stunning blow to the Bloody Monkey, a Navy
judge gave Petty Officer Pablo Paredes
no jail time for refusing orders to board his ship
before it left San Diego for the Persian Gulf.
Cmdr. Klant found Pablo guilty of missing his ship's
movement by design, but dismissed the charge
of unauthorized absence. Although Pablo faced one
year in the brig, the judge sentenced him to two
months' restriction and three months of hard labor,
and reduced his rank to seaman recruit.
"This is a huge victory," said Jeremy Warren, Pablo's
lawyer. "A sailor can show up on a Navy base,
refuse in good conscience to board a ship bound
for Iraq, and receive no time in jail," Warren added.
Although Pablo is delighted he will not to go jail,
he still regrets that he was convicted of a crime.
He told the judge at sentencing: "I am guilty of
believing this war is illegal. I am guilty of believing war
in all forms is immoral and useless, and I am guilty
of believing that as a service member I have a duty
to refuse to participate in this War because it
Pablo maintained that transporting Marines to
fight in an illegal war, and possibly to commit war crimes,
would make him complicit in those crimes.
A shot of Chinaco for Paredes for having the balls to stand
up to the Bloody Monkey and also
for the judge who had the balls to say, "Halliburton
has gotten rich enough from Bush's war."

can show a court that she is mature enough

In one dissent, Justice Owen said the teenager
in the case had not demonstrated that she knew
that there were religious objections to abortion and
that some women who underwent
abortions had experienced severe remorse.
Funny that Bush, because he was super-rich, paid
for an illegal abortion in Texas in 1971,
would now deny that freedom to those who aren't
