I guess this makes it official: The Holy War has begun. Thanks, Bush administration. Nothing like self-fulfilling prophecy, I say.

The rest of the planets in the universe must be laughing their asses off...

Um... in Fallujah? Now? Or has he already split for Iran?

Sorry, that's next year I'm thinking of...

Hey, i've seen that Satan before! He's on your logo now :)

I wonder how long it will be until there is a type of Handmaid's Tale-type holy war within the states itself....between us filthy atheists and the oh-so-holy rollers?

There was a totally creepy article in SFGATE today:

I don't want to slpit hairs, but you misspelled 'Haters'.

Posted by: inonthekilltaker at November 8, 2004 12:26 PM

No, inon, I mean "hatter". As in "mad as a". I didn't know if people would get the joke or not.

And you misspelled "split."

Ohhhhh, sorry.

i was watching this TV evangelist guy last sunday. sometime i do that just to see what they hell they tell people. there's always something.

well, this guy was telling his people that God and Jesus and that whole team want them to HATE evil. they're supposed to love everything else, but hate satan and all that is evil.

add that to the president of the US who went out and declared that there is an axis of evil (iran, iraq, n. korea)

scary. nothing like casting yourself as the hero, and denouncing "others" as evil.

Damn that Satan. I keep losing track of him. Up until this minute I thought he was still stateside.
It just keeps getting better doesn't it? There's nothing like a holy war to warm the cockles of my heart.
My sister always says Earth is like the backwoods Alabama of the Universe. I think she's got something there.

He was stateside Princesws. He's been going insane since he won that election.

Good old Col Brandl. Reminds me of Charles Durning in "North Dallas Forty." I kept waiting for him to end his pep talk with "and for God's sake, don't scratch your balls."

Remember personal info?






Lying Media Bastards is both a radio show and website. The show airs Mondays 2-4pm PST on KillRadio.org, and couples excellent music with angry news commentary. And the website, well, you're looking at it.

Both projects focus on our media-marinated world, political lies, corporate tyranny, and the folks fighting the good fight against these monsters.

Tales of Media Woe

Senate May Ram Copyright Bill- one of the most depressing stories of the day that didn't involve death or bombs. It's the music and movie industries' wet dream. It criminalizes peer-to-peer software makers, allows the government to file civil lawsuits on behalf of these media industries, and eliminates fair use. Fair use is the idea that I can use a snippet of a copyrighted work for educational, political, or satirical purposes, without getting permission from the copyright-holder first.

And most tellingly, the bill legalizes technology that would automatically skip over "obejctionable content" (i.e. sex and violence) in a DVD, but bans devices that would automatically skip over commericals. This is a blatant, blatant, blatant gift to the movie industry. Fuck the movie industry, fuck the music industry, fuck the Senate.

Music industry aims to send in radio cops- the recording industry says that you're not allowed to record songs off the radio, be it real radio or internet radio. And now they're working on preventing you from recording songs off internet radio through a mixture of law and technological repression (although I imagine their techno-fixes will get hacked pretty quickly).

The shocking truth about the FCC: Censorship by the tyranny of the few- blogger Jeff Jarvis discovers that the recent $1.2 million FCC fine against a sex scene in Fox's "Married By America" TV show was not levied because hundreds of people wrote the FCC and complained. It was not because 159 people wrote in and complained (which is the FCC's current rationale). No, thanks to Jarvis' FOIA request, we find that only 23 people (of the show's several million viewers) wrote in and complained. On top of that, he finds that 21 of those letters were just copy-and-paste email jobs that some people attached their names to. Jarvis then spins this a bit by saying that "only 3" people actually wrote letters to the FCC, which is misleading but technically true. So somewhere between 3 and 23 angry people can determine what you can't see on television. Good to know.

Reuters Union Considers Striking Over Layoffs- will a strike by such a major newswire service impact the rest of the world's media?

Pentagon Starts Work On War Internet- the US military is talking about the creation of a global, wireless, satellite-aided computer network for use in battle. I think I saw a movie about this once...

Conservative host returns to the air after week suspension for using racial slur- Houston radio talk show host (and somtime Rush Limbaugh substitute) Mark Belling referred to Mexican-Americans as "wetbacks" on his show. He was suspended for a couple of weeks, and then submitted a written apology for the racial slur to a local newspaper. But he seems to be using the slur and its surrounding controversy to boost his conservative cred with his listeners.

Stay Tuned for Nudes- Cleveland TV news anchor Sharon Reed aired a story about artist Spencer Tunick, who uses large numbers of naked volunteers in his installations and photographs. The news report will be unique in that it will not blur or black-out the usual naughty bits. The story will air late at night, when it's allegedly okay with the FCC if you broadcast "indecent" material. The author of this article doesn't seem to notice that Reed first claims that this report is a publicity stunt, but then claims it's a protest against FCC repression. I'd like to think it's the latter, but I'm not that much of a sucker.
