Some Cruel Truths About Rock n’ Roll: What Can We Learn from Them?

Some Cruel Truths About Rock n’ Roll: What Can We Learn from Them?

Last week, a story about The Runaways’ Jackie Fuchs, centered around her account of being raped by the late music entrepreneur Kim Fowley in a motel room full of people on New Year’s Eve in 1975, challenged the very idea that rock and roll is something worth loving. Fuchs’ account hit the music world like a bomb that obliterated all taste of cherry from our mouths, demanding the acknowledgment of certain painful facts from anyone who loves 1970s pop culture, that groundbreaking all-female band in particular, or the romantic notion that music celebrating and enacting sexual openness is a force for freedom and empowerment.

AT&T Hit with $100mn Fine After Slowing Down ‘Unlimited’ Data

AT&T hit with $100mn fine after slowing down ‘unlimited’ data The Federal Communications Commission hit telecommunications giant AT&T with a $100 million fine, the largest it has ever levied, for slowing down the internet speeds of customers with “unlimited” data plans. The company said it will fight the fine. Thousands of AT&T customers complained to the FCC about the issue, saying they noticed that when they had used up a certain amount of data watching movies or browsing the web, AT&T “throttled” their internet speeds so that they were much slower than normal. Millions of AT&T customers were affected by the practice. In a press release announcing the fine, the FCC said the company “severely slowed down the data speeds for customers with unlimited data plans” and “failed to adequately notify its customers that they could receive speeds slower than the normal network speeds AT&T advertised.”

5 Reasons Kylie Jenner May Be Helpful in the Fight Against Chemtrails

5 Reasons Kylie Jenner May Be Helpful in the Fight Against Chemtrails

Firstly, Miss Jenner no doubt has seen her parents and siblings without make up and before getting plastic surgery done. She knows that there is a reality behind the image put out there for public consumption. Voices in the chemtrail movement are generally suggesting that there is something going on behind the white curtain of strange looking streaks that expand into odd-looking and oddly-colored cloud formations in our beautiful blue skies. What these chemtrail activists fear may be behind them is not an average looking face or blemishes on skin, but something far uglier, sinister and harmful to our health…

Institutional Thinking – The Matrix, 1984 and the Allegory of the Cave

Individuals can transmute from dull repetitive ‘thought’ into ascended golden thinking, but as our minds are freed, one at a time, we ultimately find that our broader society is embedded with a series of norms and structures – of Matrices and Caves – that perpetuate false imagery, preserving the status quo from the ‘threat’ of individual thinking.

NYC TV Reporting Grossly Distorts Black Citizen Role in Crime

NYC TV Reporting Grossly Distorts Black Citizen Role in Crime

If news stations are unfairly and inaccurately priming viewers not to expect stories about white crime, it only serves to harden the inaccurate thesis that viewers carry with them in their hearts and minds, in the form of their implicit bias—that Black people are overly responsible for crime and should be treated with special suspicion…When media-makers get the proportions so egregiously wrong, it reinforces a culture in which the benefit of the doubt is not distributed evenly, which creates a hostile society for some and a privileged society for others. Both are harmful for all of us.

Brian Williams Suspended for False Iraq Tale, But Mainstream Media’s Real Scandal is the War Lies Spun Daily

NBC News has suspended anchor Brian Williams for six months without pay for making false statements about a 2003 incident in Iraq. Williams apologized last week after it emerged he had wrongly claimed he was on board a U.S. helicopter downed by rocket fire. American soldiers publicly challenged Williams’ account, saying he was nowhere near the aircraft that came under attack. Williams has blamed the “fog of memory” for his mistake. But in a statement, NBC said Williams’ claims were “wrong and completely inappropriate for someone in Brian’s position.” Democracy Now is joined by Norman Solomon, author of “War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death,” who talks about other media war lies.
