The Power Of Night Mirrors
59 million people are so Dumb
59 million people are so Dumb
In the past our politicians offered us dreams of a better world. Now they promise to protect us from nightmares. The most frightening of these is the threat of an international terror network. But just as the dreams were not true, neither are these nightmares.

Audiovideo expose worthy of your time. Its produced by the BBC so beware of its sweeping ideas. Perhaps
England as the US has been high Jacked by the Neocons too.

this thing here

"after all, there's nothing more important!"

this kind of in depth series into terrorism and power should have been done by the u.s. media.

instead, leave it once again to the foreign media to explore a subject which has direct bearing on life in america.

and the reason why the mainstream u.s. media would not undertake such a topic is the same reason why they refuse to look seriously into voting irregularities, and is the same reason why they parrotted the bush admin.'s lies before the iraq war, and is the same reason why they do not cover all kinds of important stories and subjects, or instead, mis-report, obfuscate, and ultimately mislead.

they could give a fuck all about informing citizens.

corporate media entities are nothing but profit generating divisions of much larger corporations and industries, and as they sit amongst that kind of company, so they shall reflect those values, and further it's interests. by protecting (not reporting) and/or misleading (parrotting lies), whatever the situation calls for. ultimately, the product this kind of perverted process generates cannot be called journalism. it is not really the facts as they occurred. instead it is the version of events which generates the most profit, protects the right people, or maligns a story (voting irregularities) before it begins. instead, it must be called psychoactive infojunk, or maybe just propaganda. there's real wood (journalism), and there's wood veneer made of plastic laminate(FOXCNNBCBSABCNBCMSNBC)

to have "freedom of the press" and to squander and pervert it is just tragic...
