From Omission to Non-Denial Denials On November 5 I published a piece on David Swanson’s well-made case in an interview on voting independent, with a few deservedly strong words on ‘The Real News’ sharing common characteristics with way-too-many pseudo or semi-alternative news outlets backed by the same-alphabet-soup of foundation backers and tainted by the same-divisive […]

Truly Independent News- Information Is A Collective Responsibility

AntiWar.Com’s Momentary Insanity or Selective Amnesia

Crucial Missing Information in Hasty Marketing of a Lap-Dog Watch-Dog This morning I was very surprised to find at AntiWar.Com a long marketing piece written on an infamous Lap-Dog Watch-Dog.

The EyeOpener: Who Watches the Watchdogs?

What influence do corporate foundation donors have over the organizations they are propping up? Last month, the EyeOpener investigated the “transparency award” that was bestowed on Obama this past March by a bevy of government watchdog NGOs who are ostensibly advocating for more government openness.
