Eyewitness “heard shots” and “ran … got to my car and drove out.”

Timeline of October 1 Shooting from Oregon Live

How the FoxNews, CNN, MSNBC Covered the Oregon Shooting Before They Knew a Thing About It
Justin Peters

By now, we all know that there’s been another school shooting, this time at Umpqua Community College in southern Oregon. But for what seemed like a very long time this afternoon, that was all we knew. Further details were hard to come by, which posed a challenge to the many journalists who were tasked with reporting on what had—and hadn’t—happened. If you, like me, were toggling between the three main cable news networks this afternoon as they struggled to report the story in a virtual information void, you saw three different and distinct journalistic strategies at work: circumspection, observation, and pontification. Here’s what I glimpsed, and here’s where I saw it.



How to Spin Russia’s War on [Western-backed] Terror? 35

Just one day into Russia’s genuine “war on terror” corporate media have begun to claim, with almost no proof, that Russia is bombing innocent Syria civilians ( e.g. here, here and here). (One report from Reuters relies on a single Syrian Army defector ukpressas a source.) In fact, Syrians have been terrorized since 2011 in a vicious, US/NATO-backed covert regime change operation.

An accompanying tactic involves routine demonization of Vladimir Putin, the man who after all accurately hit upon the horrific nature of US foreign policy at the UN in September. “In fact, the Islamic State itself did not come out of nowhere,” the dreaded Russian head of state noted.

It was initially developed as a weapon against undesirable secular regimes … In these circumstances, it is hypocritical and irresponsible to make declarations about the threat of terrorism and at the same time turn a blind eye to the channels used to finance and support terrorists, including revenues from drug trafficking, the illegal oil trade and the arms trade.

On the eve of a potential vote in the United Nations to formally recognize Palestine we speak with freelance journalist and Palestinian rights activist Eva Bartlett. Bartlett lived in the Gaza Strip for three years between 2008 and 2013. She was also aboard the Dignity, one of five Free Gaza missions to successfully sail to the Strip in 2008.

Bartlett accompanied Palestinians in ambulances during the 2008/2009 Israeli attacks on Gaza, and documented Israel’s violent November 2012 campaign against Palestine from a central Gaza hospital. Bartlett has worked extensively with Gaza’s fishermen and farmers, accompanying them as they come under fire from the Israeli army.


Delta State U Site of Recent Active Shooter Drills 43

Remarkable Coincidences in Developing Story, Recent News Article on Delta’s Active Shooter Exercises Deleted From Web

H/t Cindy

On Monday, September 14 Delta State University Professor Ethan Schmidt was allegedly shot by an unknown assailant who is Schmidtpresently on the loose. The story is being vigorously promoted by major news media vis-á-vis university and Mississippi state officials, and federal agencies including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Yet Delta State is also noted in the region for “active shooter exercises”–the most recent of which were held in late August of this year (see below news report). “We’ve had and hosted several active shooter trainings on campus,” notes Delta State Campus Police Chief Lynn Buford in a story appearing in the Bolivar Commercial that has since been deleted from its website.


The 14-Year State-Sponsored War OF Terror 63

The “war on terror” is a 14-year-old lie foisted on the world by forces hostile to the US Constitution. This has been and remains a “war OF terror” waged against all people. Low intensity police state at home and high intensity war abroad are the new norms. The fact that such a program has not been more widely acknowledged and refuted is a profound statement on the state of civil society in the early 21st century.

Emeil Tavon Stewart, a freshman from Fort Meyers, wrote at 7:00PM Tuesday, September 8: “My friend just said he shooting up the breezeway and texted me a pic of a gun idk if he jokin.”

Stewart informed WPTV-NewsChannel 5 that he overheard an unidentified party on campus mention “shooting” and “breeze way” (the campus’ central walkway). Stewart says he was reluctant to contact campus police without more solid “evidence,” and thus attempted to inform students and gauge their response via social media.


Forgotten Victims of the “War on Terror” 144

This week corporate news media have vigorously circulated the image of a three-year-old toddler whose corpse was found on a Turkish beach in an apparent effort to illustrate the tragic dimensions of Europe’s present refugee influx. Yet the same media have been largely absent throughout the US, Israeli and Saudi-led “war on terror” that has resulted in many millions of injuries and deaths over the past 14 years. In fact, the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Syrian families is a result of a covert Western campaign of regime change being waged against the Assad government.



Inconsistencies in Official CT Sandy Hook Investigations Suggest Coverup 93

duck-walkOn this week’s episode of Real Politik Australia-based independent researcher Allan Powell joins the program to discuss his deep research on the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre. Mr. Powell lays out his analysis focusing on a set of images provided in the Vimeo video below.

He argues that the apparent investigation and police report of the incident carried out by Connecticut State Attorney Steven Sedensky and State Police released and released in late 2013 defy normal protocols. Further, there are clear contradictions and suggestion of a coverup based on the documents’  various disclosures concerning the crime scene and related evidence.


“Crisis Actors” Alison Parker and Adam Ward 135

The “journalistic” duo were prone to elaborate get-ups and antics both on and off the air –  UK paper says

Photographs obtained from the social media accounts of slain reporters Alison Parker and Adam Ward posted by the Daily Mail on August 26 indicate the pair greatly enjoyed dressing up at work and play. At one point they are even photographed in a dressing room preparing “fake injuries” as combination crisis actor/reporters.

“The reporter and cameraman shared this photo of them being painted with fake injuries for a news segment,” the Mail remarks.
