The US tv news media can deliberately lie or distort the news to us and nothing can be done about it with the current laws.
I suggest we need some new laws.

Why The Media Lies
The Corporate Structure of The Mass Media

It's getting scary.
When I watch CNN ,
it's not for the news,
but for the propaganda report.
Duff Wilson at the Seattle Times exposed the practice of
where farm fertilizers are adulterated with "trace" amounts of industrial wastes,
like steel mills residues, etc.
The fertilizers are a program of "recycling" allowed by the EPA.
It introduces cadmium, mercury,and overly high levels of zinc, and a myriad of pollutants to the farmlands , and the model assumes that the farm lands are totally pristine and have no prior contaminants accumulated , as in lead-arsenate used in Wa state orchards for decades/etc..
So the limits are allowed for each separate metal, etc.,
but never account for multiple toxics accumulating,
in synergistic fashion with eachother or other toxics like pesticides,
Fluorides and other septic tank effluents that pass along the ground water.
It caught national attention quickly, especially in NY, but then faded just as fast , as industrial resistance mounted an attack that silenced the whole movement to clean up the fertlizers, due to"exponential costs"and "bad science"
The costs of other disposal was enormous , to free disposal in fertilizers,
in that the industrial sources paid a tiny pittance to the fertilzer companies , to take the waste away.
In some cases industry sold zinc as fertilizer derived from old tires.
Watch out for peanuts folks...
But after weeks of exposure by the newspaper, then it was buried just as fast, and was thoroughly defeated by the industrial forces , and the fertilizers are still "amended"
with only oversight from the industries that supply the toxic wastes to the fertlizing companies.
Wilson is still there at the Times ,, but received a solid thrashing by Washington state industrial polluters of high tax base for the state,
and the state
set toxic limits,
with the fertilizer and industrial source companies to oversee themselves.
Another example of this kind of environmental insanity that was buried by newspapers, was the EPA program called
or sewage sludge,
as farm fertilizers.
Absolutely loaded with heavy metals and fluorides,
it was at first trashed by the EPA,
dumping the originator, an Al Ruben,
then after realizing that it had no where else to remediate the problem,
as in ocean dumping,
and land filling
EPA brought Al Ruben back as a hero, because the Biosolids was a cheap way out for recycling toxic solid wastes.
The lawsuits around the country involving sewage sludge and its effects on farm animals and well water, number in the thousands.
Watch your well water,
Most of it is real bad.

| "...Rupert Murdoch, argued the First Amendment gives broadcasters the right to even lie or deliberately distort news reports on the public airwaves."
Now we have a Constitutional right, under the First Amendment, to become a nation of liars. Gee, I have the right to lie to you under First Amendment protection! It has been said that a liar is a thief and a thief is a liar. Will their next argument be, that in their pursuit of happiness, they are free to steal?
Rothschild said, in effect, that if he gained control of a nation's money supply, he cared not what laws were passed. Money buys everything. Ask your Congressmen/women, bought and paid for by corporate interests. The Supreme Court judges could be included in here, too.
The ONLY hope that we have in ending this nation's nightmare of political corruption is to remember that evil falls of its own weight. It hasn't failed to fall in all of history.
Exposures such as has been posted here will help bring about their downfall.

| crisrose, thanks for that startling and revealing information!
Imagine if these beings didn't have total control of the news media, our govt, food, water, energy, money supply, military, religions, resources etc.

| Fox must be the worst, I do not know,
but certainly all the news , newspapers and TV
are best observed as interpreting the whitewashed propaganda report, and filtering out the blatant lies,
often thru exposure such as this.
This shit is getting bad.
these judges need to be incarcerated for the nazi's they are.
These judges are like the
Information Retrieval Service
in the movie Brazil...

| "In overturning the jury..."
So much for the verdict of juries! Our court system is in ruins when judges can, and do, overturn the judgment of juries. It boils down to one-man rule over the law. So why bother with seating a jury, taking up time, inconverience, and expense in reaching a fair verdict when their decisions won't stand?
Doesn't this just make you mad? Aaaaargh. I went through something similar when a judge decided to GO AGAINST THE LAW in making a judgment, leaving no recourse but to appeal his decision. It would have required more expense, much time, and a few more years of litigation. Not worth it. That's what they hope for...not worth it, just take it and suffer the loss. It cost me $10,000 to repair the damage to my roof, caused by a crooked roofer, which should have been made the judgment against the defendant.
I don't believe this was an isolated case. It's happening all over. It's a sad, sad day for America when a party to a lawsuit can disobey the court's instructions, commit perjury and still win!
Now, a jury finds for the Plaintiff and the judge sides with the Defendant in a case of great importance to the entire nation! Lying to the public is no longer a crime. This leaves the door open for the defense of ALL of those immoral bastards in Washington D.C. that lie to us every time they open their mouths.

Yup, and most people accept it so long as they have all you can eat buffets, lots of entertainment, tv, movies, concerts, sporting events, amusement parks, drugs, alcohol, porn etc.
We live in a decadant society that is unsustainable.
We don't protect the environment, we abuse it and deplete every natural resource to extinction.
We all deserve our fate if we don't try and improve our future.
I pity those who have children who will one day ask their parents,
"Why did you allow this to happen?"

|The American people suffered manipulation of news long before they had a constitution. When the British king signed into law the parliamentary representation rights granted to the American colonies, the proclamation documents were sent by the normal British merchant ship - not the world's fastest means of transport. On the day that parliament passed the legislation a fast American schooner sailed to North America bringing the news that the demand for "no taxation without representation" had been successful. The war of insurrection was launched before the merchant ship arrived and the news kept from the people.|

| The manipulation of news is maintained by a specific species of humans.
This species has used their news medias to generate racism between whites and blacks in the past 150 years.
This species controls the US govt, its news medias, Hollywood and the US currency.

| Mike Whitney has a good clue about media control, but those who provide us with knowledge from our early childhood currently rule the world and it will still take some time for the truth to get to the people.
