    Can't be talking about uncounted ballots stored for years in casino vaults in NV, TSA, etc., etc. on US mainstream TV. :td: No more Freedom Watch w/Judge Napolitano on FOX.

    Apparently he was dumped for insubordination, according to the buzz I'm hearing. Murdoch has decided to support Romney, but the judge was talking about Ron Paul.

    Insubordination?! Wow. Like it's the frigging military or something.

    So much for a free and fair press. Ha ha. It's the same everywhere. NPR dumped Juan Williams for a stupid reason. They totally bungled it. And yes, as you all know, I consider myself leftwing, but I thought NPR was idiotic to fire him for the reason they did. (Not that he suffered any. He went on to two multi-million-dollar contracts, one with Fox and one with a publisher.) Chris Hedges left the New York Times because they were becoming so uncritical and intent on kowtowing to power.

    I remember something media critic Mark Crispin Miller used to say to me: "The mainstream media isn't 'liberal' or 'conservative.' It's majoritarian. It tends to support whatever forces are in power."

    Censorship, even if self-censorship, is alive and well.

    I think it is simpler than what you state, Media is Buckatonian. Who has the Bucks controls the Media.

    I would say that's the same thing as majoritarian. The people with the most money are always the ones with the most power. At least in this society.

    yep the golden rule. who has the most gold, rules. except in this modern day, perhaps this doesn't apply anymore given that the FBI now considers valuing gold an identifying mark of a domestic extremist... along with having a food supply in excess of three days.

    "Failure to comply," in government parlance.
    In this economy, for those not able to hop into multi-million media deals, that is a powerful coersive force, and it corrupts terribly.
    If we are being minded in our efforts at alternative media, I am at least heartened by the stupidity of the minders.
