Big Dan's Big News Feb 15, 2010

American public not informed of Ahmadinejad's anti-war remarks by the American corporate media.

Those who control the media, control the country...the problem is: THE LIBERALS DON'T CONTROL THE MEDIA!!!

...American corporate media (the NOT liberal media we're supposed to think is liberal) only tells the American public things Ahmadinejad says that will stoke up a war with Iran or complete falsehoods.

Corporate owned American not liberal media totally ignores story of Ahmadinejad calling for worldwide nuclear disarmament and saying the A-Bomb is "inhumane". Wake up! The mainstream media is OWNED by and works for the interests of: corporations (that OWN them), the wealthiest few Americans, and the military industrial complex.

Iran - the reported and the unreported

Two days ago, there wasn't a media source in the U.S. which didn't report on President Ahmadinejad's speech on "Revolution Day", which included his claim that Iran could, if they wanted to, enrich uranium to 80%, and this somewhat belligerent sounding remark (were it not for the sentence which follows it):

"The Iranian nation is brave enough that if one day we wanted to build nuclear bombs we would announce it publicly without being afraid of you," Ahmadinejad said, addressing Iran's Western enemies.

He told the crowd, "When we say that we don't build nuclear bombs, it means that we won't do that because we don't believe in having it."

Yesterday Ahmadinejad had more to say. When you read it, you won't be surprised that not a single Western source has reported it:

"We believe that not only the Middle East but also the whole world should be free of nuclear weapons because we see such weapons as inhumane," Ahmadinejad said in an interview with Russia's NTV channel.

"Today, no one can use a nuclear weapon and we believe that the US is taking a wrong move by stockpiling nuclear weapons," Ahmadinejad stated.

He stressed that the nuclear weapons no longer have efficiency, noting the US that possesses nuclear weapons will never achieve victory in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"Those who claim that they are against nuclear weapons should dismantle their nuclear weapons first to prove that they are honest," the Iranian president said.

US media omission: Iran calls for global nuclear disarmament is the only American media to cover the story:

Iran President: Era of Nuclear Weapons Over. Ahmadinejad calls for worldwide nuclear disarmament

Iran president: Era of nuclear weapons over

Ahmadinejad: We believe A-bomb is inhumane

Turkey reports it, but not the American corporate media:

Ahmadinejad Calls For Global Nuclear Disarmament

Here's more, The Ahmadinejad “Israel must be wiped off the map” corporate media FOLKLORE:

Across the world a media story has spread that Iran’s President Ahmadinejad has threatened to destroy Israel, by saying that, “Israel must be wiped off the map.” Contrary to general belief, this statement was actually a misinterpretation. However, it was the Islamic Republic News Service in Iran that first mistranslated the quote. Iran’s Foreign Minister attempted to clarify the statement, but the quote ended up having a life of its own in the corporate media. (a "convenient" misinterpretation? at least a media retraction of this "misinterpretation" never came forth! What made the Project Censored list, is that the corporate media censored the fact that it was a misinterpretation and that he never said it!)...

Have you seen these protests at the Vancouver Olympics? I didn't think so...they're not the TeaBaggers protesting for health care companies:

On February 13, 2010 the Heart Attack March took to the streets of Vancouver aimed at blocking the vital transportation routes for the Winter Olympics, or as the organizers put it, "blocking the arteries of capitalism." Protesters largely overwhelmed Vancouver police until riot squads moved in to suppress the demonstrators. This video shows scenes from the day and talks to participants about what happened and why they were on the street.
