Even though the out-going poodle, Tony Blair, has called for a “journalism regulator” in the UK, i.e., he demands a censor be appointed, and he considers alternative news sources “more pernicious and less balanced” than the government script-reading corporate media, there seems to be a bit of freedom left to tell the truth in Britain, that is until the country slides into total dictatorship, a process well underway thanks to Blair.
For instance, George Galloway, member of Parliament for Bethnal Green and Bow, on his talkSPORT program, broadcast over the largest commercial radio station in Britain, continues to get the truth out. Indeed, Galloway’s program, according to UTV, has pulled in record call numbers and the highest ever ratings for its weekend slots, even pulling in more than the station’s Football First program.
In the United States, Galloway would never be allowed near a radio microphone, especially not on a large corporate station. Instead, here in America, the large stations are dominated by neocon tools such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, and the “liberal” stooge Alan Colmes. In America, Galloway would never be allowed to get away with telling the truth, namely: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, never called for Israel to be wiped off the map, a lie repeated almost daily by a corporate media serving dutifully as a warmongering handmaiden for the neocons, who want to attack the country and slaughter thousands of Muslims before the decider and Commander Guy Bush leaves office.
