Fox TV To Use Propoganda, Scare Country

"Time to wake the country up!"

Bush ally Rupert Murdock has decided that it is time to help Bush scare the country a little more using the popular show "24", according to the Drudge Report.

As Washington continues to raise concerns about terror threats on The Homeland -- a recent CIA report outlined a scenerio of possible "series of explosions using 'low charge' nuclear weapons" -- Hollywood and FOX-TV are set to up the ante with the new season of 24!

Few outside of the 24 set know the exact details of the new season unfolding, but studio sources claim producers are pushing hard to take it radioactive this time -- and keep it there.

"Time to wake the country up!" a top FOX source told the DRUDGE REPORT over the weekend. "I do not think there has ever been TV done like this, the viewer is going to be completely riveted."

The source claims executives are prepared for any fallout from local municipalities that may be on the receiving end of plot turns and twists. How many cities 24 puts on 'nuke alert' is unclear.

FOX has set a highly-controversial espisode of 24 to air Monday night, opposite NBC's GOLDEN GLOBES.

In 2002, White House officials questioned the timing and release of PARAMOUNT's action movie SUM OF ALL FEARS -- a movie which depicts a nuclear bomb unleashed on an American sporting event!

One senior Bush official, who spoke to the DRUDGE REPORT at the time, claimed the movie crossed over the line of civic responsibility and commerce.

Developing...

If this is indeed true, there is no doubt that is doing theirpart to ante up the fear factor andBush struggles to gain some support for his misadventure in Iraq and possible forays into Iran and Syria. Hopefully, the American people will not be fooled.

Sigh.

    I have had many debates where the conservative talks about the threats to the country citing absurd situations from 24.  24 is a mixture of fear and titillation.

It's a freakin' TV show

and a damn good one at that. None of this stuff is new. Nukes and terrorist threats to the homeland have been in movies since James Bond and the bad Shwarzenegger flicks of the '80s.

The people who look to a television show to stir up their anti-Muslim passions are already rabid winger dead-enders.

24 goes all out to desensitize and disinform the public about the utility of torture, and basically denigrate habeas corpus rights as have the White House legal advisors. Boycott 24 sponsors, and don't watch the militaristic crap.

A far more critical abuse of our public airwaves is the ongoing and massive $2 billion plus public relations/propaganda campaign spent by these rogue Republican radicals since 2004.

It is simply unprecedented and unsustainable in any kind of real democracy.

That should be the number one goal of this Democratic House leadership - cut off the propaganda mill, Shut Down the Mighty Wurlitzer of the Lying NeoCon Chickenhawks and Shut it Down NOW!!

Then, repeal the Congressional authorization for war and any further warring in the Middle East, including and especially, Iran and Syria, and order all special forces out of those two countries immediately. Prove that you can still control the military, and that it hasn't been completely subverted to to the will of Wall Street.

Then initiate impeachment proceedings.

In that order. That's what we need from the "opposition party" -- OPPOSITION.

NOT collaboration toward legislation that has no chance if passing. Minimum wage increase, stem cell research ... none of that will mean shit if these people are not brought under control.

The House leadership needs to stop wasting time and start acting like an opposition party.

Nothing To Lose But Your Chains

The paradox, of course, is that in communist China, a people's revolution is underway to subvert the "Great Firewall of China," and the revolutionaries are winning!

Here in the US, we have a Great Corporate Firewall, which with it's insidious Digital Rights Management, software patents, software, music, and literary copyrights that crush free speech, secret sealed court proceeding, "top security secrets" that don't begin to stop 9/11s, national security black letters to librarians, etc. And no one puts up the tiniest fraction of resistance, since we have "democracy" (bullshit!!!). RESIST OR BE A SHEEP, COWARDS!!!
