"It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear." -- General Douglas MacArthur

  1. Here’s some extra information that might be helpful with the CBS Narco News link.

    Read Tom Fenton’s book “Bad News: The Decline of Reporting, the Business of News, and the Danger to Us All”. He was a foreign correspondent with CBS for about 35 years and is now retired and based in London. A lot of his points are still valid:

    A lot of intl. news video is either stock footage or shot by a stringer. Then it’s packaged in a bureau and fed back to New York. At times the correspondent just does a voiceover and they’re done with it. In other cases, they stand in front of a screen inside their studio in a hotel in the Green Zone as they use stock footage that they had nothing to do with.

    The network’s justification for cutting foreign coverage? Most people don’t know where ____ is anyway. So who cares?

    Can you name one network foreign correspondent?

    Does it bother anyone that Jon Stewart is taken seriously by millions as their primary source of news?

    Definately a great book.
