Walton and Johnson are constantly making completely false or racist, bigoted statements under the guise of humor and free speech. They have a white man pretending to be black, or pretending to be gay, they have a segment call the ghost of Trayvon Martin where a white man pretends to be black. Not just black but a very racist stereotypical portrayal of a black man. They make fun and offend all races that aren't white men that share their views. They use fear mongering and race to call for essentially a coup d'état of the Obama administration, they use racism and hate to attack children, women, gays, etc. All they are doing is race baiting, using fear, and lies to promote division and hate in order to further a Right wing political agenda. Freedom of speech is one thing. This is hate speech and fear mongering propaganda used for indoctrination. Clear Channel Broadcasting was purchased by Bain Capital and since then has become another propaganda tool. Some of the accusations and things said are far worse than anything I've heard coming from Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, or even Alex Jones. I believe the show is based out of Houston and it air from 6am until 10am on the gulf coast on 97.9 WCPR. It is syndicated and available on many stations. Could you please investigate them? I know if you listen to the show you will take action. It is just inexcusable the things they do and the lies they tell every day.
A short course of what is in the Constitution for those of us who did not have the benefit of an American Education
It is difficult these days to ascertain who, if anyone, is telling the truth. The fact that MMFA chooses to report on lies of what it believes to be commission (Fox) and not the errors of omission (mainstream media) is a curious niche to be occupying. Thank you though for telling me what I need to think because, as you imply, left to my own devices, I am too stupid to be able to figure it out for myself.
Tell the Amerian People the Truth not lies
Keep the American people informed with the truth and not lies
The blatantly false ads attacking the President seem illegalto me. I'm not educated in law, but could this be considered something like defamation of character?
I thought the false reporting on Fox seemed illegal but that was before the political ads started coming. However, these ads are not being showed on cable and wouldn't be protected in the same way the Fox News Channel is.
Can't Crossroads GPS and the rest be held legally accountable for this? They could be sued and then be demanded to make reactionary statements, just have other media publications have had to do in the past (tabloids). That would really blow everything up in their face and hopefully put an end to this major problem.
This linkhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDmJ47IQuXQ shows lord blackheath on february 13th 2012 addressing parliment in the UK about a 15 trillion dollar fraud(linked to the Federal reserve). Not one single word about it in the mainstream news and only one article by nation of change. this should be right up there with the libor, would someone please look at the testemony and try like i have been to expose it .
Then be the first President to actually tell the truth based on facts. Give information or links where people can follow the facts. The right would be hard pressed to counter with out facts, nor would fox news
I have been listening to political talk radio for 20 years, and I have published on this topic (http://books.google.com/books?id=BZ4fbMPV3k0C&pg=PA27&lpg=PA27&dq=%22Kathryn+Ruud%22&source=bl&ots=OJ9bFHiN9k&sig=UGB5O_fAgbnWRsJVOBNV4Y7ib-0&hl=en&sa=X&ei=QmDvT46mEOjh0wGbieT-Ag&ved=0CEkQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=%22Kathryn%20Ruud%22&f=false)
Since 1995 (post OKC bombing), I have been doing public speaking:
Here is an article in Financial Times Deutschland about a talk I gave at the request of an Occupy group:
I use (in my public talk) & re-post (on FB) many MM clips. Because of my background in linguistics and in the study of the language of extremism, I strongly urge you to listen to the talk I give (url above) and to pay much, much more attention to the polarizing strategies of scapegoating, stereotyping and dehumanization. Name these strategies (i.e. call them out) highlight who uses them and when/where (ptr host AND politicians).
And personally, since I monitor extremist language used as a business model (more on that in my public talk), I would also be glad to see you hold the left to the same standards, but I know this is unlikely to happen. (You can see my own ongoing monitoring on my FB public page, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Stop-Polarizing-Talk/133847433358392)
Thank you for your work! I used to have to tape this stuff by myself. Media Matters has been a huge help.
And I would be very glad to hear back from you, and I would also be glad to give my talk at MM (I am within driving distance of DC).
