Latest News

Week of July 11 2005


Fox News Coverage of the London Bombings
On the Media Matters website you can watch excerpts of news coverage of the London Bombings on Fox News. There is John Gibson before and after the bombings. Then Brit Hume talking about the futures market after the bombing and thinking, "Hmmm, it's time to buy." And finally Brian Kilmeade on how the attacks work to "Western world's advantage." Each link above has contact information to let Fox News know what you think of their coverage.

Perhaps more effective, contact the sponsors of Fox News and let them know as well.


Statements Regarding the Attacks on London
Peace and justice groups around the world have issued statements following the attacks on London:


Veterans for Peace Declaration of Impeachment
Veterans for Peace issued a Declaration of Impeachment using the language of the Declaration of Independence citing many of the same reasons to remove George Bush that Thomas Jefferson cited to separate from King George of England. Sign their petition to impeach Bush.


Plamegate
The Center for American Progress asks the questions the White House press corps should be asking about Karl Rove's involvement in outing former CIA operative Valerie Plame, wife of former Ambassador Joseph Wilson. See the congress.org web site for local newspaper contact info to urge the media to cover this story.

For background information, see the Wikipedia entry on Valerie Plame.

UPDATE: The press corps finally woke up and started asking questions. See the video (Quicktime or Window Media Player) of the White House Press Briefing (courtesy the Michael Moore web site) or read the AP article on the Guardian. Contact the journalists asking the questions to thank them:

Update on the Bunker Buster and Senate Vote
Unfortunately the Senate voted down an amendment to deny funds for a new generation of nuclear. Women's Actions for New Directions has set up a page so you can send a message to your senators and either thank them for supporting the amendment or speak out to those who voted against it. Type in your US postal code to find out how your senators voted.

Iraq Deaths Estimator
Did someone tell you that U.S. military intervention in Iraq was over? Not true: we're at it again. This time the pretext to drop bombs is "curbing ISIS" (which was created by the U.S. in the first place, to overturn al-Malaki in Iraq and then Assad in Syria, and is now out of hand. Like what happened to "our" creature al Qaeda in Afghanistan). And the death toll continues to rise...
Write your senators and tell them: "Enough! U.S. out!! Iraq has shown it can curb ISIS by itself!"
