My response is that the so called mainstream media does a swell job of covering the "news" according to the corporate leaders' view. It is fair and balanced, as long as you do not ask any questions, and as long as you believe that the government-any government, is always right. Was it fair, was it balanced, when two murderous thugs in uniform tortured, then murdered, Fouad Kaady?
My memory of the "news" coverage of this event was that even before the poor victim was cold, Mainstream Media began it's assault upon the truth: "It is unknown at this time whether he was on drugs, " "The "suspect" had allegedly been involved in several hit and run accidents," "He was said to be acting strangely just before the incident." "when the suspect failed to respond to the tasers (FAILED TO RESPOND??? HE WAS BLEEDING, BURNED BEYOND ALL RECOGNITION, AND THE DUMBASS COPPERS WERE PUMPING HIM FULL OF ELECTRICITY-He responded all right. as soon as the electricity stopped, he jumped and ran), the officers were forced to shoot to kill." SEVEN TIMES!!!
No, there was no balance, until Indy reporters became aware, and began to question. No balance, until friends and relatives began to yell and scream, no balance until our noise was heard in Wyoming, and the Spence firm began to take an interest. Then the balance began. More balance to follow when the film is published, and yet more balance to follow when the Spences take these animals apart, piece by piece. Mark my words, main stream media will be busy as ever trying to put the best face possible on government exesses.
I will probably continue to monitor MSM in order to see what the government wants us to think, but when I want news, it will always come from Indy and other sites who do not pretend to be fair and balanced. For the love of GOD, someone MUST represent the people in the information cycle. Someone must speak from the victim's side. The corporate ("liberal?) media can continue to present their fair and balanced coverage, if it likes. I call bullshit.
