BFP Select Nightly News & Editorials- January 20, 2012

Dear Boiling Frogs Post Readers & Supporters:

Every weeknight we’ve been presenting to you ‘BFP Select Nightly News & Editorials,’ a thorough round up of international and national news, select editorials, videos and podcasts. We have been consistent in providing you with balanced selections from sources other than disreputable US mainstream media such as CNN, FOX, NY Times, Washington Post or News Week.  We have been highly conscious of giving equal platforms to the news organizations representing those intruded upon and violated by our nation’s foreign policy and practices. Isn’t it only fair to provide both sides? We have been daring in presenting controversial, truly independent and bold editorials and analyses feared, resented and censored by many mainstream and pseudo alternatives wary of their funding sources.

I invite you to check over 120 nightly news roundups provided to you here at Boiling Frogs Post for our track record on banning the repeatedly-discredited and long-proven illegitimate propaganda outlets. I encourage you to check our selections and see our consistency in ensuring the credibility of what we bring to you night after night. And I ask you to compare our nightly news-editorials with others who boast ‘alternativeness and independence’ but do exactly the opposite. Today, I checked one such site, and here is what I came up with:

Of approximately 50 or so headlines provided on Iran, Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Turkey … They have 11 Headlines taken straight out of ‘Washington Post,’ 14 from ‘BBC,’ and 4 selections go directly to ‘NPR,’. Meaning: over 50% of their supposed alternative news came from 3 or 4 major mainstream media sources with very little or no credibility who have been consistently serving the Neocon and War Machine propaganda for decades.

Every day we spend several hours researching  the news and editorial selections brought to you every night. We don’t resort to the lazy-easy way of receiving headlines from 4 or 5 mainstream RSS feeds, and turning around and feeding those to you under the con game called ‘alternative.’ And we are determined to continue our ban on disgraced mainstream media sources that have long lost credibility with the true irate minority and activist citizens.

Please help us continue this work. We do not have foundation bosses or fund-ers. We do not serve the corporate fund-ers by being their advertisement platform-stage. We solely depend on you and your direct support. Please support this home of the irate minority, and thank you for all you do.

BFP Nightly Quote

"NATIONAL DEFENSE, n. In U.S. political discourse: 1) The pauperization of the nation through expenditures for deadly weapons systems; 2) The bombardment and invasion of small countries. The United States is, of course, the only nation entitled to such 'defense.' If the inhabitants of other countries resist the U.S. government's 'defensive' measures, they become guilty of 'internal aggression'; and if governments of other countries practice U.S.-style national defense, they become guilty of 'naked aggression.'" -- Chaz Bufe, The Devil's Dictionaries

  1. Now what would happen in the US if anyone else wrote this following article about assassinating Obama?

  2. @ Macfly: Welcome! Here he/she end up in Guantanamo (NDAA;-), or, assassinated while traveling overseas (including the Bahamas;-), receive a wide range of ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ (aka torture galore;-)… What am I missing? People, care to add more ‘likely’ possibilities?

  3. exactly.
    well, I guess it is good to be one of ‘the chosen’ here in the good old US of A
