Orwell Rolls in his Grave

This is a fascinating film (video posted at bottom of page). The one problem I see, is they focus too much on conservatives being responsible for the controlled mass media. Conservatives are defiantly not angels, but it was Bill Clinton who brought us NAFTA. Hillary Clinton voted for the Patriot Act, the Iraq War, and both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama voted for the Reauthorization of the Patriot Act.

Diane Feinstein (Democrat) and Orren Hatch (Republican) worked together (and probably still are) to give the telecommunication companies retroactive immunity against lawsuits for warrantless wiretaps. NPR did a story on this issue, but there was something I found odd. I started hearing, “This program was sponsored by AT&T” and then the coverage dropped off.

As they mention in the documentary Joseph Goebbels said “What you want in a media system” and he meant the Nazi media system “is ostensible diversity that conceals an actual uniformity.”

For a documentary that gives a more in depth and balanced perspective watch The Century of Self

Orwell Rolls in his Grave provides the following information and then some:

According to the nonpartisan congressional Budget Office: between 1979 and 1997, income for families in the middle rose 9% from $41,000 to $45,100, while income for families in the top 1% rose from $420,000 to $1,016,000 — a 140% increase.

Why has the response to a rise inequality been a drive to reduce taxes on the rich? [That’s a good question–see Matthew 19:16-26]

A CNN/Gallop Poll conducted March 2003, found that 61% of the American people thought Saddam Hussein as personally responsible for the September 11th attack. Out of the 911 hijackers 15 of the 19 where from Saudi Arabia; the others were from Egypt and Kuwait [all us allies]. How did the American people get such a distorted view of who was behind the attack of 911?

Five months before the 2000 Election Governor Jeb Bush moved to purge 57,000 people from the voting rolls, supposedly ex-felons. Florida’s Secretary of State, Katherine Harris, was Bush’s campaign manager. The Governor is his brother.

CBS News killed the story on the basis of a denial by Governor Jeb Bush, who was the TARGET of the allegations.

From George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”
… and the sheep bleated
“4 legs GOOD, 2 legs BAD.”

… and then they bleated
“4 legs GOOD, 2 legs BETTER.”

Bush keeps rallying to get rid of “The Death Tax.” Bernie Sanders points out only 2% of the population is even rich enough to pay estate tax, yet the American people have been duped into thinking there is a death tax that’s plaguing people in the US.

Michael Powell (son of Colin Powell) was head of the FCC. Michael Powell said free Air time for candidates is:

“… unconstitutional and an infringement on the broadcaster’s free speech rights”

“.. have no idea what the public interest is.”

“The oppressor here is regulation.”

You may have guessed Michael Powell got rid of equal air time for Presidential candidates, but who would tell you that?
