The financial/political/corporate world is running a three-card Monte table, the media acts as the ringer, and the 99% are the marks. Stop the game, occupy the table.

Here are two excerpts from Edward R. Murrow‘s October 1958 speech as performed by David Strathaim in the 2005 movie Good Night, and Good Luck.

Murrow is long dead now, and instead we have Lara Logan whose motto is “never report the truth if it might embarrass those in power.”

(NOLA.com) The Coast Guard has put new restrictions in place across the Gulf Coast that prevent the public – including news photographers and reporters covering the BP oil spill – from coming within 65 feet of any response vessels or booms on the water or on beaches.

This video was shot just prior to the unofficial rule being made official:

Rand Paul wants to know where his honeymoon period is. He seems to be under the mistaken impression that he has already won the Kentucky senate seat. The first seven minutes of Stephanopolous’ interview of Rand Paul covers his views on civil property rights, after which we learn that Rand Paul believes the federal government has a right to regulate, but enforcement is apparently a step too far.

Watch this video to see how the jack-booted government thugs are digging their heels into BP’s throat. Katie Couric, apparently chastened by Palin’s criticism, politely ignores that the United States Coast Guard is acting as private security for BP to stop journalists from documenting oil from BP’s “accident” on a public beach in South Pass, Louisiana:

(HuffPo) This is not the first report of such an incident. There have been other reports of camera and video equipment being confiscated or banned. In fact, Lauren Valle, a Greenpeace Volunteer, who was turned away by BP contractors when taking members of the media to the affected areas along the coast stated, “they’re trying very hard for people not to see it. We’re here to bear witness.”

Last week William Black, author and professor of economics and law at the University of Missouri, testified before the House Financial Services Committee with regard to the financial industry. On April 23, 2010 he sat down with Bill Moyers:

The more I hear about the current “financial reform” legislation, the less I am convinced it is going to address any of the real problems.

Thank you, Bill Moyers. You will be missed.

Hahahahaha

Glenn Beck is sick.

One hundred three companies have said “thanks but no thanks” to running ads during Glenn Beck’s TV show in the United Kingdom.

His show “was forced to run without any advertisements” for five days in a row.

Better call the wahhhhhhhhhmbulance!

UPDATE (3/12/10): Glenn Beck is still losing advertisers in the US, and broadcast of his show in the UK “has been running without any advertisers for over a month now.”
