Read the stories that TV news networks forget to report!



Let’s give them a round of applause for consistency! Another year is coming to an end, and the corporate media have played the game without a single error.  The stories that were glossed over, omitted or covered up in 2003 remain untold.  And the stories that were ignored, under-reported, or distorted in 2004 have resulted in the most unformed electorate in American history.  By all means, let’s recognize the national news networks for another year of dishonor!

It’s not that we didn’t warn you. From its inception, has frantically waved a whole series of red flags: In our widely read editorials we offered readers a guide to interpreting the news.  We analyzed CNN to disclose its minimal news content.  We chastised the White House Press Corps(e) for its shameful surrender to intimidation. We showed how FOX News was truly a FOXymoron. We called for email campaigns directed to the major news anchors. We ran an open letter of accusation to news networks.  We demanded that the NY Times recognize the time for truth.  And we wrote a blistering epitaph to the TV news at the end of 2003.

So, here we are again, because nothing has changed. And here they are again, because we still need to know.

  • The Military Record of George W. Bush: the missing year, the refusal to take a medical exam, the absence of a single witness to his service……

These stories represent the tip of the iceberg.  Their absence from the headlines is a dire warning to Americans that there no longer is a free press in this country.

Investigative journalism in the US bottomed out during the Clinton years when the Monica story consumed every media outlet with embarrassing abandon. With very few exceptions in the print media, the profession never again rose above that level. In the past four years, television news networks have uniformly morphed into competitors for tabloid coverage and for Bush administration favor.

We are all the less for their betrayal.

But we will not be silent. TvNewsLIES will continue its fight against corporate media deception. In this end-of-year editorial, we sincerely thank all our readers for their wonderful support, their generous donations and their much appreciated words of encouragement.

We also want to publicly thank the editors of WhatReallyHappened, Buzzflash, OpEdNews, and all the other alternative news sites and bloggers who have shared our editorials with their readers. Through continued cooperation and unity we may convince those who are uninformed and unclued that a true democracy cannot exist without a free press.  Or, we may not.

These are frightening and discouraging times.  We have only two choices: to accept without question what we are being told by the corporate media, or somehow, access the truth. Only by knowing what has been hidden can we understand the enormity of the problem that faces us now, and promises to get worse.

Actually, we only have one choice if we are to survive the secrecy of this administration and the complicity of the news media in suppressing the stories that should have been reported.  That choice involves rejecting the TV News Networks as sources of real news, and understanding that the print media is beholden to its corporate owners.

The solution lies in cyberspace. The truth is here. The information is available. Access it, read it, and share it. Maybe, just maybe, we will one day reclaim the media as reliable sources of factual news. For now, keep in mind that the corporate media have conspired to keep us uniformed and pliable.  Reject those who would keep us informed.  Join those who believe that we have a right to know. hopes to make the New Year one of resistance and renewal.   We wish you all a year of greater truth in these deceptive times.  In 2005, our fight against media deception will go on, and we invite you all to share it with us.

Please accept our wishes for a more peaceful year to you all.  And Resist….
