CNN Ratings Plummet -Audiences Leaving in Droves

CNN Loses 50% of its Audience

The television networks are experiencing some major losses of their audiences as the 2012 First Quarter.The ratings drop are not really a surprise if you consider most Americans get their news and information from the internet where corporate interests are not the rule of thumb.

One typical example is that CNN consistently televised every GOP debate last year and bored the public with 21 of them, that illustrated their “Obama Bashing” comments from 10 lunatic candidates.

CNN Ratings Plummet -Audiences Leaving in Droves

The next problem of CNN is televising gory pictures of horror from the Middle East, blood and guts with dead people every night on their nightly programs. America has been at war since the year 2000, you’d think CNN would pick up on that fact.  

The third problem with CNN is the misrepresentation of facts for corporate interests and there are many, many examples of this when they protect drug companies, big oil and show Viagra commercials at every break. Those sponsors are the bread and butter advertisers of CNN and certainly the network has to promote their sponsors, which is against FCC regulations.

Finally, CNN likes to repeat programs over and over again, using the same segments on one program shown at one time slot and then two hours later repeating the same stuff on a 10 pm show.

CNN’s repetition of biased, slanted news stories and opinions, does not help to make them accurate.

The line up for these screw ball shows are: Elizabeth Cohen, Al Velshi, Piers Morgan, Roland Martin, just to name a few and oh yeah Anderson Cooper, the guy who laughs like a girl and attacks doctors on his show. Not an intelligent bunch.

The 2012 Ratings So Far: 

 March, 2012 CNN lost ground with a drop of 50% in total viewers, and down 60 % in the major age group 25 to 54 years old.

Some Complaints From The Public  

The media available to consumers today, is rich with independent, choice sources of news, covering the day’s stories and give viewers a much more accurate, realistic picture of today’s events.

Not only are tv commericals selling untested drugs, viagra mainly but the content of news from one channel to another support corporate interests.

Most programs are so obvious in misinforming the public on new health findings for instance, that vitamins are attacked on the morning shows as being “unhealthy”.

Of course this was NBC’s Today Show -a typical corporate sponsored news program. The same network that hires wacky, medical experts like Dr. Nancy Snydermann who -well you had to see it to believe it when she screamed “Just get the Damn vaccine People!” “Trust Your Government-There’s no conspiracy”.   You can’t get more pro-pharma than that one!

TV News Is for Corporate Interests and Are Paid Commercials

On the TV nightly news broadcasts you can expect some twisting of the facts by paid announcers and so called “experts” which are totally fabricated. Unfortunately the FCC Federal Communications Commission is asleep at the wheel instead of monitoring accuracy and broken rules in product promotions during news segments.

This has been going on for years and years and the public is much more aware of what system of television broadcasting is being delivered into their homes, trashy spun misrepresentation of the facts.

As far as NBC’s Today Show, even Sarah Palin could not lift their ratings which only resulted in a small, tiny increase in viewers, from 5.3 to 5.4 million viewers. This disputes the fact that Fox News hired Palin “because she was hot and got ratings”, perhaps three years ago but time passed her by.

 

 

 

 

 

Monsanto Takes over State of Vermont

Monsanto to Sue Vermont over Labeling GMO

One half of the US has pending laws requiring food labeling and after the Pink Slime Fiasco, the USDA and FDA are in pretty bad shape in the view of the public and social media.

Barack Obama backed pharmaceuticals selling H1N1 Vaccines which turned out to be a bad hoax on America. Over 4 Billion Dollars was given to pharmas for a vaccine that did not work. Nice Job Obama.

Now he refuses to act on GMO foods, slime food and is too worried what Fox News will say about regulating filthy foods sold in America.  

Something has to be done about the Food

Since the last 20 years cows milk contains harmful bovine hormones, and in the last few years massive recalls have reached an all time high, making Americans leery of their government agencies.

Four Agencies Cannot Keep Food Clean or Do they Work for Corporate Interests

The US government employs thousands of employees at four agencies: none of whom can keep food safe for the public. The NIH, FDA, USDA and CDC are all useless and should be either disbanded or fired.

FDA Is a Joke even with More Sweeping Power Laws Passed in 2010

The FDA is supposedly responsible for keeping food from contamination and records show they have done a miserable job, so much so that the agency is not earning their keep. Besides replacing all the talking heads at the top who are tied to the hip with pharmaceuticals and factory farms, the agency needs to do their job or be fired.

The FDA has been too busy trying to shut down Amish milk farmers, to ever invest time doing audits on factory farms, they simply do not do their job. The FDA also has attacked organic health food stores instead of going after the real enemy of American families- the factory mass producing corporate farms.

 

The USDA in Bed with Monsanto- Factory Farms that make Pink Slime

The USDA is so deep in bed with Monsanto GMO you cannot tell when the corporate interests end and government controls begin. Former lawyer for Monsanto was Pres. Obama’s choice to head up the agriculture industry. Obama has made some damaging appointments when it comes to agriculture and terrible decisions to allow GMO into the food supply.

The pink slime scandal has exposed the USDA as an agent for BPI, AFA and other slime makers who now are fully endorsed and its all in the open. Tom Vilsack made an appearance at a BPI media blitz but he convinced no one. Vilsack did not even require by mandated law that ALL pink slime be labeled! Not even labeling is allowed in American the Filthy.

Now, states are considering taking matters into their own hands, and 20 states are suggesting laws to require labeling of genetically modified organisms GMO.

As it turns out – you can’t trust four government agencies to tell you the truth, which makes the Obama administration the worst ever when it comes to fake, plastic and dangerous foods.

Vermont Leads the Nation in Projected GMO Label Laws

In Vermont, a progressive state, the bill is called H-722 and it will require the mandatory labeling of GMO in foods. From the Millions against Monsanto, a march from New York to Washington, the pubic demands GMO labeling. They demand it now.

The people of Vermont have sent thousands of emails, letters and phone calls to their legislators to enforce GMO labeling and they want action. Vermont legislators who are beholding to corporate donations from Monsanto are holding up the bill. Now Monsanto has even threatened to sue the State of Vermont if the bill is passed, which sounds really strange.

The Public Demands Labeling of All GMO Products and Ingredients in Food

If a product is totally safe and without toxins – why would any one fight labeling their own products?

Monsanto Threatens to Sue a State for Label Laws?

But we know Monsanto likes to sue people, especially organic farmers, and those who chose NOT to use GMO seeds on their farms. ie) Percy Schmeiser a Canadian farmer who sued Monsanto and won when they tried to take his canola farm away from him, he fought them for years and won his case in the Canadian Supreme Court.

Since when does a corporation apply threats of lawsuits against a state for passing labeling laws?

This is how an evil corporation attempts to succeed in totally controlling the food supply and they are doing this in many countries. India has charged Monsanto for bio-piracy for infecting their cotton crops with GMO cotton which destroyed thousands of farmers. They also stole eggplant species and attempted to infect the eggplant crops, a vital source of food for India’s people.

GMO Foods Contain High Levels of Pesticides and are Harmful to Health

Monsanto has proven to be the most dangerous, corrupt organization that claims they have “patents and rights” on god made seeds. Monsanto did not make or produce the first seed, they only added pesticides to seed germs, and now claim they have ownership of the seed business. The US patent office were not in their right mind when they issued patents on seeds, a natural made product.

Of course the FDA has ignored the public outcry and sides with Monsanto that GMO which is pesticide food, is totally safe even though the chemicals are carcinogen. The USDA has just allowed Monsanto to use Agent Orange in food production which is totally deadly.

 

Obama Sides with Monsanto, Factory Farm Corporations -Not the Public Good

Mr. Obama has to wake up and smell the rot in his administration that is subservient to Monsanto, the factory farm corporations and clean up his act. But then again Obama doesn’t want give Republicans a reason to call him an over-regulator even when the quality of US food resembles that of Nigeria. Obama’s famous “messaging” problem and fear of Fox News prevents him from making practical, healthy choices for the public and his main concern is his re-election campaign.

That is why this is the only time, Americans can demand he change, not the country. Obama has to change his acceptance of Monsanto and factory farms in the agriculture polices or else face the damaging consequences in sky high healthcare costs.

The FDA has a long history of siding with corporate interests, even suppressing vital information on arsenic in apple juice, mercury fillings, BPA, slime hamburger and antibiotics in livestock which is refused by other countries. It is time for that hopey changy thingy to materialized before the November election.

We cannot depend on Pres. Obama to do the right thing, we cannot depend on him to protect the public from his profiting campaign donors. He doesn’t have your back.

Sick people cost a country money. Big money.

Elections with Electronic Voting Machines

Elections with Electronic Voting Machines

In 2006, a Princeton University study reveals that Diebold election electronic machines are flawed and can be easily used to “steal votes” and rig elections.
In the study pre-installed malicious code alters the end resulting votes even though the votes were not calculated correctly, the code worked to rig the election.

Diebold is a software security product company that builds technology for ATM Terminals, Security, Mobile Banking, retail, commercial, healthcare reporting systems and electronic voting machines.

Video on Princeton University’s Study of Diebold Voting Machines

The software running on Diebold voting machines was written by the company itself and they should know the vulnerabilities in their own software. Apparently not much has been corrected to prevent the remote hacking possibilities with only months to go before the November election.

Malicious software can be installed on the Diebold Machines or any electronic voting machines to:

Install viruses that spread from one machine to others
Steal votes from any candidate
Control how the votes are counted
It can cover it’s tracks so the theft cannot be detected
Can modify records, and logs
Can change the counters that record votes at will
Votes appear to be correct, but they are not                                         Can do this all remotely

This malicious software can rig an election and then delete itself from the voting machine, and no one can detect the real results. A memory card can contain the malicious software, viruses and in 10 seconds a voter machine can be hacked easily.
Even after software engineers examine the voting machines and will not be able to find any vote stealing hack. Any person who has access or even the makers of this software of voting machines can hack an election.
