C Span Is Controlled by the Neocon Cable Industry
by Kucinich Supporter Wednesday, Jan. 02, 2008 at 5:33 PM

C Span is designed to amplify the propaganda of war profiteers while muzzling the voices of the poor



C Span is a Time Warner and other neocon cable
media run operation. Its phone system gives 1/3 of the phone lines to the 6% of the American population who are registered
Republicans, 1/3 of the phone lines to Democrats, and only 1/3 of the phone lines to the vast majority of Americans, 82%,
who are unregistered (55%) or registered 3rd party (Libertarian, Green, Socialist etc) or independent (60% of remainder).

As a way of eliminating calls from the poor,
C Span does not provide 800 numbers, a standard on
many talk shows.

C Span during its Morning Journal gives dozens of ads to deforesting
warmonger neocon newspapers such as the Sulzberger
owned NY Times, Zell owned LA Times, Chicago Tribune
and Baltimore Sun, Meyer owned Washington Post,
National Journal (war profiteer funded), Washington Times
(supported by the CIA black budget) etc.

C Span's guests are frequently from American Enterprise Institute, Heritage Foundation, Brookings Inst. and other
neocon institutions. This is true as well of its Book TV authors,
who are from HarperCollins of Rupert Murdoch, Regnery
(employer of Lucianne Goldberg an architect of the Lewinsky
frame) etc.

The American media were further put under war profiteer
capitalist control by Ronald
Reagan's chief operative G H W Bush. Public service
spots were eliminated. Later, Bill Clinton signed
a bill further consolidating media control under neocons. Even so
Rupert Murdoch was still violating even the new
law. A gradual coup d'etat at once
decentralized NPR was further consolidated when
Kevin Klose was brought from Radio Free Europe,
an anti socialist tranmission paid for by
the taxes of the American poor, to NPR, with
no community voting.

It was after Bill Clinton's signing in the
mid 90's of the neocon telecommunications act that Clear Channel came into being. CC was
a 1200 station monopoly for a chunk of which Mormon war promoter Romney's Bain Capital
has made a play. The decision is scheduled for July 2008,
in time for the elections.

On Jan 1st, Bill Clinton's speech for Hillary was broadcast 4 times.
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, says Jimmy
Carter, are the 2 most neocon candidates in the Democratic
Party.

In feb of 2009, the tv's of the poor who have no cable
will not work. As with bank bailouts and the enabling
of the pricegouging of oil companies by giving grants to
a small percentage of the poor to buy the megathief priced
oil with public taxes, the Congress has as well
provided that a few of the poor will have money
to buy cable, a program funded for the richby the middle class against
its will

Steve Scully of Time Warner's puppet C Span.. has
cut off Kucinich and Ron Paul callers... and nearly all Democrats. This is
especially irritating for those who have waited
30 days abiding by the once a month rule..
and have dialed C Span's numbers several or dozens of times to get in only to get out 1 2 or 3 sentences
before the delete button.

Normally C Span rotates its call in hosts, but in the preprimary weekend
neocon Scully was given both days.

C Span has not told people that the Des Moines Register
like USA Today is part of the neocon Gannett chain.

There are 65,000 caucus Republicans in the 3 million
population Iowa.. and 150,000 Democrats.
Preprimary weekend Republicans were given 28 hours of
programming and Democrats less than 14 hours.
New Hampshire is 99% white. Iowa is 95% white.
New Hampshire has heavy masonic influence
and a high proportion of retired military while
Iowa is an animal genocide state with
concentrated pig and cow slaughter and factory
farms.
