There is also excellent ongoing coverage of the Occupy Wall Street Movement on Democracy Now!
http://www.livestream.com/globalrevolution Other occupy locations are coming online. Occupy LA has been supported by City Hall and is supported by their local police–unlike in Seattle, NYC, and St. Louis.
Go forth and explore the Reality Show the mainstream media is failing to wrap its corporate paid talking heads around. I do believe there are reasons why it’s tough for the corporate owned media to get on board. Number one reason: they are corporate owned. They are NOT FREE PRESS by any stretch of the imagination. But that should not stop anyone from stretching their imagination. Peace.

Yes, folks there is GOOD news for a change on what has lately been a bleak dark landscape of a justice system suffering the pollution of Tar Sands ilk deluxe. Consider the recent execution of Troy Davis and you get my meaning pronto–unless you’ve been hiding under a rock waiting from some rain to end the abnormal drought affecting your homestead. Oh yeah, climate change is real and it has not yet begun to kick our collective butts like no other bite back of Mother Nature so far. How adaptable are you? Okay, on to the GOOD news–Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman, Sharif Abdel Kouddous->THE REPORTER IN EGYPT– and Nicole Salazar have won a settlement in a federal lawsuit against Minneapolis, St. Paul and, yes, the Secret Service for unlawful arrest of the Press.
Why does this rock? Because if you haven’t noticed the freedom of the press has been a ghostly shadow of late in the US of A. If it weren’t for independent media and journalists one could argue that there’s not a shred of reputable uncorrupted by corporate interests press left living and breathing in America. Journalists around the world are being killed in record numbers. I have yet to comprehend the condemnation and targeting of Al Jazeera News for so long. Oh I take that back, I DO comprehend it–Al Jazeera does what American Mainstream Media often fails to do these days–REPORT THE NEWS. OOPs that’s not fashionable these days for the comfort of The One Percent. Good reporting gives the 99% information and information leads to communication and independent thinking and that leads to NEW IDEAS. Hot damn, The ONE Percent certainly does not want the feudal serfs of the 99% thinking independently. The One Percent certainly do NOT want the 99% knowing what the profit driven agenda has done to people around the world and in the USA. The One Percent does NOT want the still pre-occupied by Dancing with the Stars audience to be distracted by non corporate sponsored Reality. Let’s sell tickets? Hmm, shall we? Why not? Sell tickets to those still with their brainpans stuck in the idiot creating boxes to the greatest show on Earth–the HUMAN EVOLUTION. Yea, the human evolution that is currently underway around the world from Occupy Wall Street to the streets of Bolivia. The world is changing. The tipping point is approaching. We have deadly serious choices to make if we are to survive as a species on Earth. Some of you have heard this from me several times already. Sorry if it sounds like I’m beating a dead horse. I’m trying to beat a live drum.
So–this win for Democracy Now! is good news because it validates the right to a press corp to be free from arrest for covering events that The One Percent are not fond of having spread through their serfdoms. Considering everything going on now from Occupying Wall Street–and beyond–to Protesting the Tar Sands Keystone XL Pipeline–a FREE, unimpeded working Press is urgently NEEDED. Especially here in America where many serfs haven’t yet realized their place in the Feudal system that the Corporate Personhoods have been steadily creating. Do we really want to wake up in the world of Orwell’s 1984?
I don’t. Do you?
Yes, it’s worth YOUR time to hear Amy Goodman Speak Truth. Information is POWER!
