BBC Analyst Charlie Booker shows us how the news media turns non-news into news, and creates epic tales of nothingness while getting an entire nation to stare, slack-jawed at a picture of a closed door for six hours.

This report leaves little doubt that news reporters are the 21st century version of roaches.

Majel Roddenberry Passes Away

[Television]
Gene Roddenberry's wife, Majel Roddenberry passed away today. We at BSAlert particularly mourn this loss because Majel was an outspoken secular humanist, as was her husband Gene, and this theme ran through all the Star Trek shows while Gene was involved.

Her romance with Roddenberry earned her the title "The First Lady of Star Trek." A fixture in the "Star Trek" franchise, her roles included Nurse Christine Chapel in the original "Star Trek," Lwaxana Troi in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and the voice of the USS Enterprise computer in almost every spin-off of the 1966 cult series. She recently reprised the voice role in the upcoming "Star Trek" film directed by J.J. Abrams.

Non-Existent KFC In Iraq A Symbol Of War's Success

[Pundits]
Last week on the Fox News network, their pundits beamed over the "opening of a Kentucky Fried Chicken in Fallujah", Iraq. Apparently, the opening of this slave-wage fast food operation is a signal that the invasion is successful, democracy is taking root, the economy is thriving and everything is working.

Unfortunately, reality has a way of hating America, apparently.

Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich announced that his impeachment resolution against President George W. Bush will be heard before the House Judiciary Committee on Friday.

He's asking that everyone petition the mainstream media to COVER THIS HISTORICAL EVENT - we need your help! - contact names, numbers and e-mail addresses are here.

"I want to thank you for the support which you have given to my efforts to hold this administration accountable for taking us into a war based on lies, and for the destruction of the rule of law and the destruction of cherished Constitutional principles," Kucinich said.

He will make the case, he continued, that the President has violated his oath of office, violated U.S. and international law, has separated our nation from our Constitution, and has threatened the democratic core of our nation.

Taking Liberties is a shocking but hilarious polemic documentary that charts the destruction of all your Basic Liberties under 10 Years of New Labour.

Released to coincide with Tony Blair's departure, the film and the book follow the stories of normal people who's lives have been turned upside down by injustice - from being arrested for holding a placard outside parliament to being tortured in Guantanamo Bay.

Gore Vidal: US Media Doesn't Give "A Flying f*ck" About Country

One of the biggest stories in the last 20 years, American media is largely ignoring. Gore Vidal has something to say about it...

On June 9, 2008, a counterrevolution began on the floor of the House of Representatives against the gas and oil crooks who had seized control of the federal government. This counterrevolution began in the exact place which had slumbered during the all-out assault on our liberties and the Constitution itself.

April 25: National Helen Thomas (True Journalist) Day!

Posted by Pile (9539 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]

[News Media]
In the wake of the latest exhibit of true journalism by what appears to be the only real journalist left in the Washington Press Corps, we proclaim April 25 HELEN THOMAS (True Journalist) DAY!

While other networks talk about steroids in sports or dogs who can ride a skateboard or American Idol, Helen Thomas is the only real news reporter left in the White House Press Corps.

More than a week after the revelation that President Bush knew and endorsed specific plans of torturing detainees, the media has been largely silent over it other than cursory mentions at best. But Helen Thomas isn’t about to go silently into that good night and becomes the first White House reporter to ask White House spokesliar Dana Perino about how the president could have lied multiple times that we do not torture only to turn around and admit that not only do we, but he approved of it.

CIA "Torture Jet" Crash Lands With 4 Tons Of Cocaine On Board

Posted by Pile (12598 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


From the "Seems too crazy to be true" files comes this story, which now has quite a load of hard evidence to back it up.

A Florida-based Gulfstream II jet aircraft #N987SA crash-landed on September 24, 2007, after it ran out of fuel over Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. It had a cargo of several tons of cocaine on board. Now documents have turned up on both sides of the Atlantic that link this cocaine-smuggling Gulfstream II jet aircraft that crashed in Mexico to the CIA, who used it on at least 3 rendition flights from Europe and the USA to Guantanamo's infamous torture chambers between 2003 to 2005.

It's ironic that talk show host Montel Williams is the one to bring actual "news" to a show about news. Let's watch as he turns the Fox hosts' conversation from another hollywood actor who OD'd to more important social and political matters like soldiers dying in Iraq.

UPDATE: Montel Williams has lost his job because of this!!
