The Most Busted Name In News

By mike flugennockTuesday - December 12th, 2017Categories: media

It sure has been a real shitburner of a month for U.S. corporate media, hasn’t it? Aside from other notable debacles last week, the top honors went to CNN for their spectacular self-own involving the wrong date on an email in a Wikileaks trove in its “bombshell” Russiagate report which cited multiple sources — unnamed, of course. Once the correct date on the email was revealed, CNN’s “bombshell” — like pretty much all U.S. media Russiagate “bombshells” — turned out to be a big, empty dry fart.

But wait, there’s more! After that whole hot mess collapsed, David Frum, senior editor of The Atlantic, added to the hilarity by going on CNN, looking the whole country straight in the eye, and telling us that “The mistakes are precisely the reason people should trust the media.” Ohhhh, yeeeaaahhh. Keep fucking that chicken, Dave.

Wall Of Oligarchy

By mike flugennockSunday - July 28th, 2013Categories: Party Animals, elections, media

Ever notice what a pain in the ass it is for dissident/third parties to get any media attention? They hardly ever get any media because it’s damn’ near impossible to get onto the ballot. They can’t get onto the ballot because it’s damn’ near impossible to raise any money. They can’t raise any money because it’s damn’ near impossible to get any media… well, I think you can see where this is headed.

Only The Party is able to raise the gobsmacking amounts of cash needed to get its views into the media, which means that Party propaganda and talking points are all over the TV like a bad rash. Third parties, independent and dissident candidates are pretty much locked out because the tepid liberal and raving rightist freak wings of The Party collude to rig the rules so that they’re the only ones who get to participate in the televised debates — which takes us back to what a pain in the ass it is for dissident/third parties to get any media attention.

This is the first in a series of posters being created for the March Against Corruption, an international day of action — inspired by the uprisings in Brazil — being planned for November 2. Find out more about the March Against Corruption on Farcebook.
