Big Dan's Big News Sep 16, 2009

Will Fox News hold Beck to its Dan Rather standard?

Maybe THIS is why the major networks besides FOX "news" aren't touching the ACORN story? FOX "news" airs that an ACORN employee MURDERED someone...and she didn't! She was "messing with them"!

Fox News' Glenn Beck recently aired a video indicating that an ACORN employee shot and killed her husband, without first bothering to verify whether the husband is, in fact, dead. He isn't. The video is, in other words, a fraud. But that didn't stop Beck from calling it evidence of "murder" and perhaps even "premeditated murder." Of a person who is still alive.

Sean Hannity aired it, too.

Any chance we'll see this level of outrage directed at Glenn Beck for unquestioningly airing an apparently fraudulent tape in order to portray an ACORN employee as a murderer? Beck has, after all, been pretty clear that he is trying to bring ACORN down.

Here's a bunch of Fox News "reporters" who are outraged about the murder. Which didn't happen. Because the guy is still alive:

When in Doubt, Blame Immigrants and ACORN: Media conservatives choose scapegoats over substance

ACORN stories that won't hit the "liberal media"

Drudge, Limbaugh, and the Sad Return of "Racial America"

Limbaugh Goes Full-On Racist During Rant About School Bus Beating

...more hate speech by Rush Limbaugh: Jimmy Carter is a "National Hemorrhoid":

Let me be the first to say this: the way rightwing media keeps pounding and pounding and pounding ACORN stories and dehumanizing ACORN activists, some rightwinger is going to shoot ACORN activists, and they will be a "hero" in the rightwing media...just like the abortion doctor killer, and those rightwingers who TWICE shot people in liberal churches!

I offer you almost daily proof that the so-called "liberal media" is FASCIST and NOT "liberal". Here's more: the much larger 2002 anti-war protest was NOT on the front page of ANY major newpaper; the smaller Tea Party was on the front pages of ALL major newspapers!!! Liberals do not OWN the major newspapers, TV, and radio. Corporations OWN them, corporations aren't "liberal". The OWNED so-called liberal media speaks for: the wealthy OWNERS, the wealthiest few Americans who control BOTH parties, corporations, and the military industrial complex! This is not a LEFT-RIGHT or REPUBLICAN-DEMOCRAT issue, it's a RICH vs. POOR issue: corporations who OWN the media are making $ off the wars, and they are making $ off health care! So the papers put the anti-health care reform Tea-Baggers on the front page, and the LARGER anti-war protest BURIED in the papers somewhere...if they cover anti-war protests at all! And the LARGER anti-war protests were LARGER without the HELP of a major news network, like the Teaa-baggers have FOX "news" and Glenn Beck promoting them. Also, with no coverage, they have people saying "what happened to all the anti-war protests??? There has never been a major network EVER blatantly endorsing any protests, but the anti-health care reform Tea-Baggers have FOX "news" and Glenn Beck promoting them! If you look at the videos I posted yesterday, if you go to these Tea-bagger protests and you don't agree with every single thing they do, you get shouted down, followed, harassed, etc...JUST LOOK AT THE VIDEOS I POSTED YESTERDAY! If the Tea-baggers were FOR health care reform, they wouldn't be on the front page of the major newspapers! Just like the anti-war protests! Keep thinking that the corporate-OWNED newspapers are "liberal", and you are living in a fantasy world. If the corporate-OWNED media is liberal, name the liberals who OWN it!!! You can't, because they don't exist!!! The corporation General Electric is one of FIVE corporations that OWN virtually all the "liberal" media. These corporations are RUN by RICH CEO's who get tens-of-millions of dollar bonuses...THEY aren't "liberal"! Would you characterize3 the CEO of Goldman-Sachs as "liberal"??? Or ANY CEO??? Journalists don't control the news...the OWNERS control the news, as in ANY CORPORATION! The question to start with, when examining the so-called "liberal media", is "WHO OWNS THE MEDIA???"....NOT "Is the media liberal?"

For major papers, 9-12 march -- but not Iraq war protest -- warranted front-page coverage

The Myth of the Liberal Media: The Propaganda Model of News

People on the right who lately are pointing to the lack of coverage of the recent ACORN story, on the other hand aren't complaining about the ZERO coverage of the "liberal" media of the GOOD things ACORN has done for DECADES, such as their campaigns on behalf of poor people for things such as: Affordable Housing, Better Schools, Fair Housing, Fair Tax Fees, Foreclosures, Gulf Coast Recovery, Health Care, Immigration, Living Wage, Paid Sick Days, Predatory Lending, Utilities, and Voter Engagement. They IGNORE the ZERO media coverage of this. ACORN is an organization with a lot of minorities that numbers almost half a million people, and the ratio of the "liberal" media's coverage of the good things they do vs. some bad apples is outrageously biased against them! Should the Republican Party disband, because of their recent off-the-charts corruption of Sanford, Vitter, Craig, DeLay, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Rice, etc...??? Actually, Tom DeLay is now on a reality show! Maybe these ACORN people involved in this scandal should get a reality show! I'm not condoning what these "few bad apples" did, by no means...but let's get serious about how biased the coverage really is! The ACORN attacks by the right have been non-stop over the years. Remember the NEVER-PROVEN ACORN voter fraud dueing the election? ACORN=NIGGER, in the rightwing dictionary. The out of proportion ACORN attacks by the right for years and years have everything to do with the fact that it's the largest minority activist group, and they are afraid of them. This may lead to physical attacks on ACORN members, I can see it now! Just like the shooting of that abortion doctor.

The story that won't hit the "liberal media" today:

"When the actors approached Ms. Kaelke with their provocative costuming and outlandish scenario, she could not take them seriously. So she met their outrageousness with her own personal style of outrageousness. She matched their false scenario with her own false scenarios.

"They were not believable", said Ms. Kaelke of the two actors. "Somewhat entertaining, but they weren't even good actors. I didn't know what to make of them. They were clearly playing with me. I decided to shock them as much as they were shocking me. Like Stephan Colbert does – saying the most outrageous things with a straight face." While her sense of humor might not be funny to many people, the fact is that she spun false scenario after false scenario and the videographer ate them up."

Today the videographer James O'Keefe's hidden camera "interview" with San BernardinoACORN organizer Tresa Kaelke, airing repeatedly on Fox "News", including the Glenn Beck show, and, has been caught out in an obvious set of lies and manipulations.

Morrow police arrested Troy Dale West of Poulan after reviewing a video surveillance tape and talking to customers. He was charged with battery, disorderly conduct and cruelty to children.

A man beat an Army reservist in front of a Morrow Cracker Barrel, yelling racial slurs at her as he kicked her in the head, Morrow police said. The assault happened in front of the woman’s 7-year old daughter, who stood there, crying, witnesses told police.

Michel Chossudovsky, the director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, points out that the entire federal taxes of one trillion dollars is eaten up by two things: WAR & BANK BAILOUTS! OUCH!!! You want the definition of FASCISM? THAT is FASCISM!!!
