Richie Havens Freedom (Woodstock 69)

FREEDOM OF THE PRESS: Repeal the 1996 telecommunications act, signed by Bill Clinton, and lobbied heavily in Congress. which gave the press (media) exclusion from  consolodation and monopolization. Termed Media Oligopoly.

It not only allowed monopolization of Cable, Internet, and other Information services, but also monopolization Cable Service Providers, but monopolization in radio broadcasting.

The law was written in such a way to provide for “decency” in programming, that the Supreme Court ruled this section unconstitutional. Thus removing decent programming standards from Television, Cable, and the Internet.

The law in essense gave media free reign in consolidation and programming. Leading to media ownership from 50 to 5. The consolidation of Radio stations to 80% ownership by one corporation. The consolidation of Cell phone carriers from the three major corporations at the time to one Cell phone carrier.

         The Telecommunications Act of 1996…enabled the handful of corporations dominating the airwaves to expand their power further. Mergers enabled tighter control of information…The Latin American writer Eduardo Galeano commented…”Never have so many been held incommunicado by so few.” (Wikopedia, Telecommunications Act)

I am a retired warrior of 24 years. The new battle front for me is the corruption, loss of vision, and mission in government. Congress, intelligence agencies, FBI, FCC, and FTC. The Supreme court often fails to see the forest for the trees. The forest is true democracy, equally protected, equally represenred. Not based on wealth, power or influence, but on the individual. Rulings based on one fact or one principle are but webs of distraction, and open doors for tyranny. Through blogs, twitter, Google communities I expose, investigate, and attack the enemies of democracy, with the power of the CPU not the sword. Free Press is now a consolidated, one voice, liberal, globalistic, political propaganda tool. Until real campaign finance reform removes wealth as a force in elections, legislation, and national policy we will be a functioning oligarchy, with smoke and mirrors democracy. The media will then become free, and America’s experimental democracy may evolve. I am a voice in the media wilderness, awaken from your slumber, drop your chains, secure freedom for yourself and future generations. By James Kirk-Wiggins.
