  1. Stephen Lendman writes (or here) about the pro-Zionist bias of the BBC. In a world filled with 'one-issue guys', many of them in high positions in your line of work, it makes sense, even if your own boss isn't forcing you to lie, to toe the line. If you are unlucky enough to find yourself identified as a truth-teller on issues concerning the Middle East, you might have trouble finding a job. I was thinking about this very issue when I read the BBC headline on the recent video of settlers beating up Palestinians (something which happens all the time but is never reported on): 'Jewish settler attack' on film. What's with the apostrophes? The BBC can't even report the truth without an attempt to make it appear that the truth has been faked.
  2. The Canadian scandal involving the forced resignation of the foreign affairs minister is slowly becoming interesting, but it has a long way to go. It is the long-standing connections between the Conservative Party and organized crime in Quebec, a taboo subject in Canadian 'journalism', that needs to be revealed.
  3. This song, "Death Of The Party", by the Keene Brothers - Tommy Keene and Robert Pollard - ought to become a hit. In looking for it, I discovered this interesting mp3 website.
