Big Dan's Big News March 27, 2010

Special Commentary by Big Dan: "Here's my 'hat tip' policy: if I steal something from you, I'm not going to 'hat tip' you unless you point out that you think I stole it from you and I did in fact steal it from you. Then I'll 'hat tip' you. If you point it out the next day, or if I don't acknowledge within one day, YOU LOSE!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!! But here's a hat tip to everyone I've stolen things off of: thank you, one and all!!!"

Q: Why would U.S. and allied forces in Afghanistan go out of their way to smear a journalist?

A: Because he told the truth about a night raid that killed Afghan civilians, including pregnant women.

We spoke with Afghanistan-based journalist Jerome Starkey about his reporting on special forces raids that killed civilians and NATOs surprising--and disappointing--response. This video contains disturbing images, and an even more disturbing story of violence, and an attempt to silence a truth-teller. It shows why its absolutely essential that we keep pushing back against the Pentagons message machine.

An Unaccustomed Truth: American Commander Admits Afghan Atrocities

WikiLeaks to release video of civilians, journalists being murdered in airstrike


This should get 24x7 LIVE coverage on all the networks: Sarah Palin will lead the Tea Party Express into Harry Reid's hometown. 10,000 are expected, and if THREE networks covered Sarah Palin LIVE in February when 600 people were there, imagine the network coverage for 10,000!!! NOW...if there's a liberal protest of OVER 200,000 like this past Sunday, THAT will receive ZERO coverage from the networks. BUT IMAGINE THE COVERAGE OF 10,000 WITH SARAH PALIN!!! Christ! 10,000 Tea Partiers would be like 10 MILLION anti-war protesters!!! But they wouldn't be covered, either. The Tea Partiers and Sarah Palin even get ADVANCE NOTICE in the media of UPCOMING protests, let alone ZERO COVERAGE!!! Did you have any advance notice in the media before March 21: "IMMIGRATION REFORM PROTEST COMING UP SUNDAY MARCH 21"? Of course not!

ABOVE: Sarah Palin, the much larger anti-war protest, and the much larger immigration protest - BOTH of which were IGNORED by the media in favor of SARAH AND THE TINY TEA PARTIERS, who never met a WAR they didn't like!!!

Tea party thousands rally in Reid’s tiny town. Palin headlines Nevada event in Democratic Senate leader's hometown

Media virtually IGNORED over 200,000 at Sunday March 21 Immigration Protest.

And the day before that, March 20 Saturday, there was an even BIGGER protest that was not only in Washington DC, but was in major cities across the U.S. and worldwide including Germany that received virtually ZERO media coverage. Here's some clips from the NATIONWIDE/WORLDWIDE anti-war protest last Saturday March 20, that the corporate owned media they want us to think is "liberal" IGNORED:

As bad as Saddam Hussein was (and he was a megalomanic monster), what followed him was a staggering catastrophe for Iraq, even if Americans no longer care to give it much thought.

When Was the Last Time You Visited Iraq? Exporting American Democracy to the World

White House Press Corps longest-serving member says Obama lost credibility when he dodged her question on Israeli nukes. Helen Thomas says Obama dodged her question about Israel nukes and is one-sided in favoring Israel. She says the Palestinians have no voice.

Zionist Organization of America: Obama’s Israel stance ‘an insult’ to all Jews

The Obama administration was able to present the struggle as one between healthcare “reformers” and far-right wackos looking to wreck his presidency. All this was done in the service of protecting the insurance companies from the serious critique offered by single-payer.

This guy makes more sense than any politician I've seen:

Punk-rock meets politics: American system is powerless

What happenned to America, the land of the free? Well some think it's been bought by mega corporations. The frontman of the left-leaning band 'Strike Anywhere', who describes himself as a "left-leaning Libertarian",  believes the system is in total charge with even Presidents owned by corporate money before they ever step into the Oval office.

Two cases of "blame the victim":

  • The deaf boys who were molested by the priest: it's their parents' fault.
  • The violence against Democrats: it's the Democrats' fault.

Crazy religious guy Bill Donahue blames parents for Catholic Church sex scandals - Donahue blame the church for nothing:

My question, as always, is "how do these guys get on TV???".

Do you see a pattern here? The Democrats are to blame, if there's violence against them (2nd video - rightwing voters getting angry with Obama voters: man and 10 year old daughter rammed by another guy because he had an Obama bumper sticker!!!):
