Guerrilla News: Propaganda Since 9/11 Video
    #713062 - 06/30/02 01:04 PM (16 years, 5 months ago)

copied from:

S-11 Redux:
(Channel) Surfing the Apocalypse

It is a well-known and widely accepted fact that, during wartime, news companies and governmental representatives fuse their voices together into one univocal beam of support for the national military objective. And, while, for many, this is a vital aspect of institutional patriotism, it is also a very dangerous and troubling reality. For, if the news media have abandoned their responsibility to objectively inform the population, then our concept of a democracy (which is founded on the ability for all citizens to choose their nation's destiny based on a full spectrum of information) is in desperate peril.

But imagine a mediascape in which politicians actually said what they meant and meant what they said. One where the talking heads on broadcast news actually challenged the powerful interests in Washington not with fangless sensationalism, but with insightful deconstructions of true power and its manipulations.

We can't.

At least, not in the current corporate controlled environment of media ownership. And especially not with the so-called War on Terrorism and its burgeoning McCarthyistic clampdown on open displays of dissent.

So, in the face of our media's shameless propaganda campaign, we have taken it upon ourselves to intuit what the intentions and goals of this war truly are. In what is surely a departure from our traditional NewsVideo format, GNN presents S-11 Redux: (Channel) Surfing the Apocalypse. Culled from over 20 hours of television footage recorded over a one month period and across 13 networks, S-11 Redux is a sound-bite blitzkrieg that challenges the messages we have been fed from our mainstream media and the government it serves. Be warned - this video moves quickly and will require at least two viewings to digest its full impact. You may never be able to look at the coverage of S-11 and its post-impact coverage the same way, ever again.

Hear S-11 director Stephen Marshall's interview with NPR (archive date: 02.20.2002).

10 min Video Clip of Media Propaganda since 9/11:
windows media player video (broad band): http://sfwm1.switchtechnologies.com/asx/gnn/redux/redux_bb.asx
windows media player video (low quality): http://sfwm1.switchtechnologies.com/asx/gnn/redux/redux_med.asx

quick time (broad band): http://www.guerrillanews.com/redux/qt_hi.html
quick time (low quality): http://www.guerrillanews.com/redux/qt_lo.html

i really recommend you watch the video. its pretty big if you're doing broadband (~38MB) but it streams pretty fast. if you have quick time and want to save it and watch it later, heres a direct link to the .mov file so you can right click and save as.. ( http://http.dvlabs.com/gnn/qt/gnn/redux/redux_bb.mov ) otherwise the WMP version does a asx->asf mms:// (media stream) and i don't know how to save that.

they also have their full 55 min video that they won some sundance video award for. but thats $25. this clip is very funny and really makes a point.

If you're frightened of dying and you're holding on.you'll see devils tearing your life away.
But...if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels
Freeing you from the earth.

This war is more like the old "cold war"... No draft for solders is needed (in THIS case)...

A draft for more US SPYS would seem to be a posibility however.

I wrote a speech for my English 11 class about this. I dunno my exact mark on it but I ended up with an A in the course, from a B; so it must have been OK.

"We've never seen this kind of evil before" - Bush (a little bit of a paraphrase)
Errm, WORLD WAR II?? damnit I hate that guy.

That movie is Excellent!

"You are either with us or against us" - someone
So if I was an american citizen I'd be convicted of treason..
